media / books: "like new" price for a like new book?

0

Let’s say that I have a textbook that is in like new condition — no markings or wear inside the book, and only light wear to the covers. Let’s say the Amazon price is $200, and currently new it is selling at $53.xx and used at $52.xx. In such a situation, would it ever be possible to sell off the item at a “like new” price? By that I mean, say 10-20% off the Amazon price.

Because you do not have a “Like New” copy to sell.
A book with light wear to the covers is not “Like New”, Very Good possibly but not Like New.

Over grading your items is a sure way to invite a-z claims and return requests for “Item not as described”

And Amazon will be on the side of the buyer in every instance.

You CAN sell a book for whatever you want. No one is going to buy it if the price isn’t competitive and there isn’t a demand for it.

Put yourself in the customer’s shoes and THINK about it from their perspective. Why would they spend more to buy from YOU for something used as opposed to buying a NEW item from a different seller for less money? They wouldn’t.
