Merchandise charged to a credit card will be credited to your account. Exchange or store credit will be issued for merchandise returned within 30 days with receipt. Please include original packaging and price tag when making a return. Proper I.D. and phone number may be required. We reserve the right to limit or decline refunds.

Trade-In Policy FAQ

What Are Trade-Ins?

Koham Press accepts used books in exchange for store credit. We give store credit for books based on condition and salability. We must evaluate your books in person before we can give credit for them.

Can I Get Cash Instead of Store Credit?

No, we do not pay cash for books or any other items.

When Can I Bring My Books? Do I Need an Appointment? How Many Books Can I Bring? Do You Have a Limit?

We're happy to look at one grocery bag of books per customer at any time during our regular store hours: Wednesday-Sunday 10am-dark.

Can I Bring Books That I Didn't Buy From You?


How much store credit might I possibly get?

We generally give credit in the following amounts (remember, we purchase based on condition and salability):

  • Adult hardcover: $1.50
  • Adult trade paper: $1.00
  • Adult mass-market: $.50
  • Kid's & Young Adult hardcovers with dust jackets: $1.00
  • Other kids & Young Adult books: $.50
  • Audios: For audiobooks, we give 10% of the original cover price, with no maximum.
  • Collectibles and other items of significance can often receive larger sums after evaluation.

What Can I Spend My Credit On?

Store credit is good for anything in our store -- new books, used books, gift merchandise -- including special orders. Store credit does not expire and can be used to pay for your entire purchase, including sales tax.

Why Can't You Take All of My Books?

We're sorry but we are offered many more books than we could possibly sell in our store. Some reasons we may not be able to use your books include the following:

  • we are overstocked on that particular title,
  • the title/author is not something that sells for us,
  • the book is not in good enough condition.
  • Also, we kindly reserve the right to just say no.
  • If you are interested in finding out more information about donating books, please email us at info@kohampress.com and we will help you find a good home for them.
