Your books will be credited within 7 days after our acknowledgement of your WhatsApp message/ pick-up date. If your books do not have trade-in value*, we will recycle your book responsibly for you.

No matter what, we will turn it into something good for you and the planet.

*Trade-in value will be determined using our algorithms based on current prices, popularity of the book, and market saturation. As such, some books may not have trade-in value. If you have any concerns, you may contact us to obtain a valuation first. Please note that Thryft will not process any returns after drop-off.
