Trading in,
in 3 Easy Steps

Cleaning out more than 20 books? It's free and seriously easy to trade-in or donate your books for good with Thryft.

1. Gather your books

Get a box or bag and free up space from your shelves with books that you no longer read, need, or love.

As the books will be shipped to other thrifters, we undergo a stringent inspection for every book that we recieve. Make sure your books meet our minimum guidelines!

2. Snap pictures and send it to us!

Lay out your books, and take pictures of them, making sure they can be seen clearly (you can have multiple books in one photo as long as they are visible!).

If you are using Telegram:

Go to our telegram bot (@thryftbot)

Click “/Start” and “/Trade”, and then follow the instructions shown on the screen!

* For donations, please contact us via Facebook Messenger or email ( instead of using the telegram bot!

If you are using Facebook Messenger

Send us the following:

  • Photos of the books
  • Your First Name
  • Email Address of Your Thryft Account (Not registered yet? Sign up here.)
  • (Currently unavailable) For drop-off, indicate location of book drop used
  • Tell us if you are trading in your books for credits, or donating them under our Books for Charity programme
3. Book a pick-up and we do the rest!

Use the link sent to you after completion of step 2 to book a pick-up at your convenience.

Your books will be credited within 7 working days your pick-up date. If you have any questions in the meantime, reach out to us on Facebook Messenger.

If 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.
