As students, we all know that the textbooks are increasingly expensive.
After we finish classes, we usually do not use the textbooks anymore. Some of us may choose to sell them in order to make a little extra money to in order to buy textbooks for next semester.
Regarding selling used books, some of us have tried following options:
1, Sell back to bookstores: the bookstores only give us 20-30% of original price even they would buy back the books.
2, Sell to the amazon.com: they generally charge 15-20% commission of sold price, plus we have to do the package and go to the post office. As students, most of us usually do not have the time to do that.
3, Sell at Craiglist: generally it is not very effective and buyer have to drive to the seller places to pay the money and get the books. It is difficult to find the exact textbooks we need in the crowded listings.
4. Post fliers on the bulletin board of campus, however, our notices are usually quickly covered by other people's fliers, and if there are rain, then the flyers will be wet and ruined, and we have to make and post the fliers again.
Due to aboved mentioned limitations, we set up the Free Bulletin Board on Campus for the students in the University and College of US and Canada.
With this free online service, We, students, can sell used textbooks on our own campus. There is a greater possibility of finding right user who will take the same class as we did; We could also save some money when we buy used textbooks from the ones who no longer need the textbooks because there is no third party involved and no commission. More importantly, both of sellers and buyers could save time since the transactions and exchanges most likely will occurs on the campus.
In addition to the books, students can also trade other items, such as: Cell Phones, Computers, Electronics, Video Games and Sports gears. Notices of Events, House Rental, Teacher's Bulletin and Jobs Opportunities can also be posted. We no longer need to worry about our notices could be covered by other notices, or ruined by rain.
The biggiest benefit of using campuscyber.com is that our own ideas, hobbies, concerns and inspirations, such as: major selection, school transfer, scholarship, student loan application and career perspectives of our chosen majors, can be better communicated and exchanged with our peers via student blogs. forum and groups acrsoss campuses, which will certainly help us shorten the learn curves on the campuses
