Belleville, NJ August 16, 2005 Â On August 1, 2005, one of the quickest growing college textbook marketplaces, urshelf.com, has extended its reach into the college textbook marketplace. For the past few months, urshelf.com has been diligently working on new ideas to make their site one of the easiest and quickest ways for college students to buy and sell textbooks.
Urshelf.com now enables vendors to list their entire textbook inventories using their versatile Bulk Listing Tool. Geoffrey Cox, a co-owner of urshelf.com, describes this vendor support as the start of many new upgrades that are planned for the companyÂs website. He comments, ÂBy using our Bulk Listing Tool software, vendors can easily upload large quantities of textbooks onto our site within a matter of minutes.Â The annual cost to become a vendor on Urshelf is $9.95, which allows vendors to sell an unlimited amount of books without paying any hidden fees or commission rates. This is an incredible bargain when compared with the 8%-15% commission that vendors must pay to sell their books on similar sites.
In an effort to expand its inventory, Urshelf.com has teamed up with Amazon.com. Scott Jolliffe, a co-owner of urshelf.com comments, ÂBy partnering up with Amazon, weÂve drastically improved the number of results found by our search engine. This allows students to purchase any textbook that they need and at the best price available on the web.Â Urshelf.com is also teaming up with Cram101.com, by incorporating their inventory of study guides into its ever-growing database of books.
Urshelf.com now has over 3,100 registered users on over 450 campuses nationwide and a total of 5,500 books have been listed on their website.
