metabook is a second hand book marketplace. Join our community to sell the books you don’t need to other readers, or buy books from other readers.

How it works

List the books you don't need for sale

Place an ad about a book you want to sell and it will immediately appear on metabook. All books are categorised so they are easy to find. When someone wants to buy your book from you, you will receive an order with the details. From within the order’s page there is an open dialog where you can exchange messages with the buyer. Once the details about payment and delivery are finalized you can receive the payment and proceed in delivering the order. It's that easy.

Sell Book

Do you own books you don’t need anymore? Are you interested in becoming a seller? In metabook you can sell them to those who do. That way you give them a second chance to be reused and loved again!
