How book exchange works

A buyer would contact the seller through our Message Center. The Message Center will in turn send
an email message to the seller. Both parties continue to communicate through our Message Center and
receive a notification of messages via email as well
a meeting through our secure and confidential Message Center
Parties meet and complete the transaction
