What is Campus Trade? This is an online platform that allows you to buy or sell books and other items with students in your college/university.

Why should i use it? Textbooks are way cheaper when you buy them through Campus Trade. On average, you can save up to 65% on books by using the platform. If you are a seller, you get cash for your old items. There is no need to keep a huge pile of old books if you are not going to use them anymore. By selling, you contribute in helping thousands of students who cannot afford to buy new textbooks and stationery.

Is it safe? We offer a secure payment option to protect you against fraudsters and to enable you to return what you purchased if you are not satisfied with the condition. Furthermore, all transactions and exchanges happen within your own campus of study. So you can exchange resources with other students in a safe environment.

How do i buy or sell? It is a very simple process. To sell your items, simply create a profile on our website, then post information about the items you are selling and upload pictures. A buyer will contact you directly and you can then arrange to meet on campus to complete the transaction.
