Great way to thrift books!

You’re buying real books from real people at a usually discounted price! The quality of the books is typically fantastic unless otherwise specified by the seller. It is difficult to get interaction for your own books after the first few hours as the app works like a social media platform. And my “books you might like” don’t align up with what I picked as my reading interests in the beginning. But as I’ve searched for more books, that’s becoming less of an issue.My only complaint is that I don’t see the point of having a like button as well as a wishlist button. It feels redundant.Overall, this is a great place to thrift books, but if you’re just starting out selling, don’t expect this to become a sustainable business very quickly. I mainly use this app to get rid of old books

Allow Bulk Purchases/Standard Shipping to a Specific Weight

I was going to order the rest of a series (7 books) that I needed but since they were from different sellers I was going to have to do separate transactions for every seller along with widely varying shipping costs. I ended up only buying one book, which had to be cancelled and rebought because the shipping label PangoBooks made the seller was not enough to cover the actually costs of shipping the book even in the lightest packaging. This app could benefit from a standard shipping weight up to a certain weight and then charge more of it weighs more. I lost my welcome discount since that order was cancelled and was lucky enough to find a work around and use the “pangobucks” so that I wasn’t spending even more over having to reorder the book with new shipping costs I was already adjusting to.

Great but needs some work

There are so many selections on the app and the community is just fantastic as they are also avid readers who understand your love for books. It’s also extremely easy to post books you want to sell though, it is a bit more difficult to be able to get that book to sell. The main reason being there are more sellers than there are buyers on the app currently. A lot of the people on the app are ones trying to get rid of books but they also buy from other sellers while there are only very few people who sign up to actually buy books. I actually feel the prices are very reasonable especially the shipping (compared to apps like Mercari). As a buyer and seller I really wished that I could split my earnings on different books unfortunately, the app only lets you use all your savings on the whole purchase when I just want to use some and save some money for a different purchase. Another thing is unfortunately if a buyer reviews their purchase you still have to wait three days til you get your earnings. I wish they’d take after Mercari where as the buyer is rating their package they can also confirm receiving their package so that sellers can instantly get paid.

Game changer

I absolutely love this app. I own hundreds of books and sometimes in order to make room for new books I have to get rid of other books. I’ve seen BST groups on Facebook but I never knew how much I should charge for shipping, and on the occasions where I wanted to purchase, I didn’t feel comfortable just sending money to a stranger and hoping that they’d sent me what I paid for. This app takes care of both of those issues for me. It’s super easy to list and sell books as well as purchase. I’d love it if eventually we could sell other book related items like the things that you get in book subscription boxes that you might not want to keep.

Tried this app out with skepticism, but wasn’t disappointed

I learned about this app through a Facebook add and decided to try it out of curiosity. Given the relatively low user base and the questionable nature of most FB adds, I was a bit skeptical and fully prepared to be scammed. I purchased a copy of Milton’s “Paradise Lost” for $1 (plus ~$4 of taxes and shipping), and was pleasantly surprised when the book arrived at my doorstep in fantastic condition. Obviously, not all buying experiences will go exactly as this one did, but I have confidence to buy from this app again after that transaction. Technically, the app could use a few tweaks here and there to make the service a little more seamless. For instance, finding your purchases and accessing a tracking number takes some searching, even after I had done it a few times. Placing that option a little more prominently on the hot bar could help. The forums are a great idea, but clicking off of them resets you to the top of the page, making scrolling to read more than the first few posts a bit frustrating. Overall though, this app is one that I will continue to use in the future, and look forward to seeing many more people use it as well!

Such great prices!

I’ve had this app for about a week and I’m loving it so far! I’ve found some books for super cheap in great condition. I also think that this app is cool because I’ve been finding books that I’ve never heard about before. I will say that most of the selection is older books but there are some people selling the newer popular books too! I just think that the prices are great, especially shipping! I also sell on this app and think it’s pretty easy to navigate through and it’s nice to get a little something for books I don’t read anymore. Since it is a new app, there are always ways for it to improve and here are a few. When you wishlist books, it doesn’t add them right away in the shop portion of the app. I think you have to exit the app and swipe up to restart the app for it to show up or it just shows up whenever. I’ve also found myself accidentally deleting my listing for selling so I think automatic saved drafts of listings you want to sell would be a good idea. Finally, after you look at a certain thread and want to go back to the thread homepage, it takes you back to the top/all the way to the beginning, not where you were before. This makes it so you have to scroll all the way to where you left off or miss threads that people posted. But these are just little nit picky ways to improve an otherwise great app!

Excellent app

I have a huge book collection and have started selling them through the PangoBooks app. It gets you a little more for your books though parting is such sweet sorrow. I can’t take them with me and like to see them go to a good home and not chucked out in a yard sale after I am gone. The app is for person to person sales and it has the advantages of putting you in contact with like minded book lovers. I always include a card and a bookmark with my sales. There’s nothing like receiving a book in the mail especially with a little something extra. Easily the best way to sell your books online but needs a wider audience. It’s intuitive and easy to use. You get a fair price for your books rather than cents on the dollar. The only improvements I would hope for though I don’t know if it’s possible, would be a chat/ discussion room though that might create a an admin headache and also a way of sorting my page into catagories.

Great app! Few minor issues.

Overall I love this app. It’s very easy to use and navigate. Listing books only takes a few seconds, which is a nice contrast to some other platforms out there. Linking your PayPal or bank account is also simple. There are a few technical issues that can be frustrating. Sometimes buttons don’t work, and occasionally when I’m filling out information on the book I’m listing, the text will disappear and I’ll have to start over. These are minor inconveniences that I’m sure will be worked out over time. I also wish there was a way to see and edit your followers/following list or the lists of other users. If there is a way to do that, I haven’t noticed it. I enjoy it overall and I’m happy I found it!

Calling all book lovers!

This app is my newest obsession. I’ve had nothing but positive experiences so far. There’s a great little community of people and I’ve discovered books I’ve never heard of before. It’s not as overly saturated as eBay so it feels like your books have a better chance of selling here. I’ve made a few sales already, had a great experience with a kind seller, and the PangoBooks team helped me sort out a partial refund on a bundle I goofed up on as a seller. My favorite feature has got to be the Twitter-like section. You can let people know you’re running a sale, leave reviews on books, and can put up an ISO of a book you’re looking for! I’ve discovered several new shops from this! Besides some little things that could be added to the app, like refreshing the page and leaving a review for buyers, this app is terrific. I want to share it with everyone but also keep it a secret so it doesn’t get harder to buy and sell on there lol!

Great new selling app! For BOOKS! 🤩

I love books, and I love selling books on other selling apps, so I figured PangoBooks was right for me! I was right, and it’s such a refreshing take on a selling app. The community of sellers seems fairly nice as well, it feels like a space for people who truly love books to share that love. I will say the app doesn’t look as clean as others. Some issues that I have (that aren’t really issues, just things I’d like to see renovated) are: - the way pictures are uploaded to listings. I’d like to add multiple at the same time- the feed/shop dynamic seems too clunky, and it kinda overwhelms you. - the feeds/shop reload even when you don’t want too. It just gets annoying after a while when you’re just scrolling to see what’s out there. - the ability to add more “bookish” things- like stuff/merch that comes with book subscription boxes? I know these have a decent reselling market on other apps, it would be cool to add that to this app. But that would mean adding another option besides media mail. But what I REALLY like is the shipping aspect. I love how it’s immediately media mail, and you can print labels from the app. I also like how if you do free shipping as a seller, it’s taken out of your earnings, so you don’t have to take it out of your own (in real life) pocket to buy a label.So excited to sell more on PangoBooks!
