Over the past few years momscashblog has written several posts, about making money online by selling used or new books. I’ve always believed that this is a great way to make money online & out of your home without too much of an effort. We know that everyone loves to read and that many love to collect books.
In those past posts that I had written momscashblog.com/2009/08, I had always recommended one particular online book store that was family owned, in a college community. CkyBooks.com sold and bought text books, a great way for students to make money and get rid of any other books that were accepted with ISBN no.s. Several MCB followers have started dot com book stores and are doing quite well from what I’ve read in their emails.
It is with regret that at this time I feel I should report that I’ve had no correspondence with CkyBooks since around October-November 2010. At that time I had received an email from one of the owners at CkyBooks, regarding a payment that was owed to me. In that same email they were excited to tell me that they were going to be joining ShareaSale.com Affiliate program, and that it should be a better fit for everyone all around. They recommended at that time to sign up as an affiliate with ShareASale. As of today’s date after many emails I have heard nothing from Cky and I have not received my money as of yet.
For those that are thinking of starting an online bookstore or have books to sell, here are a few book companies that you can check out. Alibris.com, Abebooks and of course there is Amazon just to name a few that are all affiliate networks. You can do some research and surely find many others that you might want to check out.
I will keep everyone informed if I should find anything out regarding Ckybooks. I’m going to also try to get in touch with ShareaSale again, but they do not have a telephone system (only email, that’s a whole post in itself ) but may find something out in an email.
I do want to mention that before writing this post I did do searches for any news regarding this company CkyBooks, if there was a family illness, a fire, (one of the owners did tell me they were moving to a bigger building) or any financial problems that could be the reason for the lack of communication. Their site shows that their archives stopped at December 2010, and the last post from what I could tell was about their company Christmas party.
I’m hoping that there’s nothing seriously wrong with the company, and that we will hear something very soon. If you are having problems with this company and are owed money let us hear from you and your thoughts on this situation, or situations similar to these.
