Seller Payment Options
As a Seller, you have two options to choose from to determine how you are paid for your marketplace sales. You may change your preferred method at any time in Your Account screen, and any pending payments will be adjusted to reflect your new choice. Although the final pay-out dates vary according to the method you choose, all payment methods are initiated on the same schedule, as laid out in the next section.
- Store Credit.The fastest and most valuable method for Sellers is the store credit option. Choose this method and you'll receive your total account balance plus 5%, issued in the form of a store credit code for use on any future purchase or purchases on TextbookX.com. This gift code will continue to increase and decrease in value as you make additional sales and purchases.
- Direct Deposit.You may also choose to have your payment directly deposited into a valid checking or savings account. If you choose this option, you must enter a valid routing and account number, which can both be found on any personal check or deposit ticket, in Your Account screen, after logging in.
