We have our own inventory other than partnering with markets and second hand retailers. We collect used books from many sources and pile it up in our warehouse. These include collecting books from customers who like to donate and give away the books, customers who wish to sell their preowned old books. Our QA team segregates these books based on quality. Major filtering takes place here, with worn-out books being recycled. Soiled books are reshaped and cleaned. We have a knowledgeable team which separates these books genre wise. Our core team lists these books on the website, and is thus available to users.

We believe Education's prime support is books. We take steps to distribute books to financially weak students to support them. Please contact us in case there are institutions or students looking for help. We would be running a background check and distribute the same.

Our History

We observed a lot of books going to trash, and eventually started collecting books from waste paper marts. A lot of efforts were taken to distinguish and segregate good quality used books. We eventually learned and moved to other sources to collect used books. With technology, we believe online used bookstore is the best way to deliver old books to doorstep. We started storing books in a small house and gradually moved to a small warehouse located at Manpakkam,Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.

With growing customer needs, we converted ourselves from an in-house inventory to marketplace, thus partnering with multiple sellers. UsedBooksFactory has become a go-to bookstore for buying books at cheap rates without compromising on quality.
