Have You Heard From this Dot Com?

Posted Sunday, March 20, 2011 by momscashblog | 12 Comments so far
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.

Thanks for the new links. Selling books can be a great way to make some money online. I’ve always used Amazon in the past, but I will have to check out those other companies you listed.
Thanks again.

one can can make his/her own store on any website…..for selling books nice……

Thanks guys for visiting Momscashblog, I wish you luck if you should decide to start selling books online. The other book companies that I mention should at least give you an idea of how to set up a book selling website. Just be cautious about how they deal with you, and if they have a phone number are they on the BBB, I guess what I’m trying to say is, you never know when a company may just shut it’s doors and leave you hanging. Thanks again for your comments jj

hey momscashblog,i don’t hear about it. bcoz i went for a holiday for a weak and come last night.

HI Jenny. I would like to apologize again, this time publicly for the recent miscommunication between CKY Books and yourself. (I guess I should actually say no communication since that is more accurate)

Early last year your site was hacked and was subsequently flagged as an attack site. It was due to this that our Network admin added your site to a list of sites that we were filtering or blocking.

Luckily a recent new customer service computer was added to the network and I was able to access your emails and this problem was brought to my attention. We have fixed the problem now and should be able to communicate normally going forward.

The good news from all this is that the affiliate program we were using long ago is gone and we are now partnered with share-a-sale.com which makes tracking referrals much easier than before with tracking and real time updates.

Thank you Todd for the comment and explanation of what happened with regards to this post that I had published. I’m so glad that we were able to get this all figured out and that we are now on the right track. I do want to make sure that all my readers understand that CKYBooks.com was not to blame for this mix-up. CkyBooks is a great place especially for students that are looking to purchase or sell text books. Remember that buying and selling your books decreases the carbon foot-print… less trees that have to be cut for paper as you are not buying brand new books!! CKYBOOKS is a good thing. jj

Lulu.com is another place where folks can publish books (among other things). ;-)


momscashblog June 5th, 2011 (9:50 pm)

Marcus, thanks for mentioning Lulu.com, that is a great place to publish books that you have written, music, or literature. It’s an “on demand publishing” co. that has helped a lot of authors get published! Thanks so much for stopping by MCB and leaving a comment it was great to see you here. Stop by again, pleased to have you. jj

Well, I actually have never heard about the dot com or your other links to sale books. I have a ton of old books hanging around that I need to get rid of! I will have to see if I can earn a little extra cash! Great!

Wow, I know you can sell just about everything online but I didn’t think there was any money in selling books. Does this just concern new books, like becoming a re-seller? Or does this also mean I could sell all my used books? I am very curious now! On that note, I am loving this blog more and more each post I read.

momscashblog June 25th, 2011 (1:19 am)

Joey, Thanks for stopping by Momscashblog and leaving a comment! You certainly are right about that one can sell just about anything on the internet… and selling new or used books can be a big one! I named a few of the book dot coms that one can try out, also there are many others like Amazon dot com is a pretty good affiliate company. Drop me a line if you are really interested in getting into a Book dot com, and I’ll help you with what I can. Thanks again and also for enjoying the blog. jj
