Text books are incredibly expensive—even more so when you're on a student budget—and to make matters worse, you only use them for one term and then they go back to your bookcase. Pagina Dos allows students to put their textbooks on sale for other students to buy, saving buyers 50% and earning book owners a return on their investment.
Since we launched in early August, our online catalog has grown to over 250 textbooks from over 60 users, proving students are comfortable reselling their books online regardless of location (a considerable breakthrough in a country lacking basic infrastructure like Mexico).
We monetize the platform by charging a 10% commission off of each transaction. Thus, students buying books pay only 50% of their commercial value, and owners earn 45% of the book's commercial value.
