Amazon as used book store?

Amazon as used book store? When did this happen -- you can sell your books (or other items), through amazon. Has anyone tried this? Where do the things show up?

I may be displaying my ignorance here, but how about auctions.amazon.com?

I'm not sure when this started but it seems to be different than both auctions and ZShops . They take a cut when it sells, but give you a shipping credit and the listing is free.

It's similar to half.com - in fact, eBay (who owns half.com) recently announced a similar marketplace thing they will be creating with buy.com. amazon marketplace items appear in zShops, so there is some connection there. (disclosure: amzn gives me money every few weeks.)

First of all, based on that link I'm not clear what you are talking about.

Why not go to a better source for used books? http://www.powells.com
