Can you sell back international editions of textbooks?

Actually, no, you can't, at least according to the condition criteria for textbook trade-ins:

The ISBN of the item you wish to trade in must exactly match with what is displayed on the website. Just matching the title is not enough, since some Books may have the same title with different editions, but a different ISBN. Also, look carefully for Books with multiple volume editions (Vol-I, Vol-II etc.) and make sure you have all of the items to trade in as a bundle or check if they are eligible as single titles.

Note: The ISBN is a 10 or 13 digit barcode used to uniquely identify books, and is typically printed on the back cover. For example, the ISBN code for J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", Adult Edition, Paperback, UK edition is 978-0747595823, and this code uniquely identifies this book and edition.


*Item shows minor wear from normal use and is clean in appearance
*Item has intact cover, pages, binding, and no tears
*Item may be lightly highlighted
*Item has no notes or markings
*Item has no torn or folded pages
*Item has no personalization or name(s) on the cover or pages
*Study guides and workbooks should have no answers filled in
*Originally issued supplemental materials included (like CD-ROMs, access codes, study guides etc.)

Books having one or more of the conditions listed below will not be accepted.
*Library copy
*International edition
*Custom edition textbooks (typically has a school name listed)
*Water damaged (wavy, swollen or discolored, crinkled, stains, rings)
*Broken spine or binding
*Books with torn or taped cover
*Missing, torn, or loose pages
*Burns, fire, or smoke damage
*Strong odor of any kind (including musty odor, cigar or cigarette odor)
*Marked Not for Resale (or is otherwise marked not for sale) anywhere on the cover or inside

Ann, I don't know why you got a dollar, unless you chose the option not to return an unacceptable book so they tossed you a buck, but your answer is incorrect regardless.
