Books galore!


At the Okanagan Textbook Exchange, we sincerely appreciate your business. We are not a "Buyer Beware bookstore" and pride ourselves in selling you the books you require at a fair price. You can buy with confidence as we accept returns on used (along with new) textbooks you purchased before the start of classes. In reality, we have very few returns as we offer help understanding the booklists.

Cash is great, but we also accept Interact, Visa, Mastercard and our own gift cards. These non-expiring gift cards can be purchased in any chosen amount ($25.00 minimum). Selling your books?

Selling? We Buy All The Time!

If we know the book is required now or in the upcoming semester, we might be able to pay 50% of the new book price in cash. We only buy books in good condition, but this price applies for both new and previously used books.

If your book is of current edition, we always check first if we can buy for the local market. If not, most current edition books have a wholesale value (usually 20-40% of new book price). We still pay cash and, you made some money before the book goes into a new edition. It makes sense (possibly good coin) to check all titles before putting them in a garage sale. We buy books year 'round.

Books on consignment


Books which have been used in the area before and are of current edition will be considered for consignment. Books will be priced at local market value (70-75%) of new book price and, the money is yours when the book sells. We only take a 20% commission for this service.
