Alibris is the premier online marketplace for independent sellers of new and used books, music, as well as rare collectible titles. They connect people who love books, music, and movies to more than 175 million items from thousands of sellers worldwide.



Industry Leader

Alibris is a vibrant marketplace operating in the three fastest-growing areas of the worldwide media business: online sales, textbook rentals, and used/out-of-print books, music, and movies. Alibris helps independent sellers find buyers through marketplace solutions and partnerships with scores of leading global media retailers, including Chapters/Indigo (Canada), and Waterstone's (UK).

Alibris is Seller First

A partnership with independent, professional sellers. Marty and Dick decided early on that Alibris would be an at-risk partner, not a listing service. This approach attracted a large number of independent sellers and now enables Alibris to offer over 150 million books for sale.

Alibris Specializes in Logistics

Many business customers required orders to be consolidated, repackaged, custom invoiced, or shipped overseas at a low cost. By building sophisticated low-cost logistics capabilities from the start, Alibris would serve those customers and booksellers could enjoy the benefit of increased sales.
