    Online group for selling MP curricula?

    Is there a suggested group online that is specifically for selling used Memoria Press curricula?

    Not that I know of. I think a lot of people sell on the WTM forum.

      I also use a group called CATHSWAP on Yahoo groups. It's worth it to join since there are thousands of members and I always manage to sell all my books through there:

      https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/...tions/messages

      It as a Catholic Curriculum site but there are plenty of MP materials on there. The majority of Catholic homeschoolers use the Form Series for Latin and MP's items seem to go pretty quick on there. You don't have to be Catholic to join.

        Would there be interest in having a board here on the forums? (like a FS or Trade) Or is that a violation of TOS or copyright?

          There is a Facebook group for selling MP materials.

            Is it pretty active there? I checked once through my husband's account and there wasn't much on there. I would be interested though if it was. That was a few months ago.

                Dianna,

                Did you get an answer to this? I think this is a great idea!

                  Hello.

                  We choose not to have a board on our website for selling used books. Every now and then, someone posts that they have something used that they are giving away, but there are plenty of other places to buy our books used. And we prefer you to buy them new since you will get the downloads to any appendix material or tests. And we will always replace any books that are damaged. I believe that our customer service warrants a little extra money in purchasing new. We get lots of frustrated calls from people who have bought used books, only to find out that they aren't the latest editions or that they didn't get the complete set they needed. Just trying to minimize those calls!

                    Thank you for taking the time to reply. CBD has all the books I want for $3 cheaper and free shipping. I was wondering what the advantages were to buying directly from MP.

                      The customer service is the best.

                      Like Tanya said, if you buy from another distributor, you run the risk of getting an older edition. For example, MP just released new spelling programs for 1st and 2nd grade. These will be scheduled in the curriculum guide. But, if you buy from CBD or Rainbow, you more than likely won't get that updated manual.

                      I can attest to this first hand. I bought my first guide, kindergarten, from somewhere else to save a few bucks. Turns out, kindergarten phonics had been updated and changed. Had I bought my guide from MP, they would've replaced it free of charge. I ended up buying it full price, again. Boo.

                      I learned my lesson and now buy all of my MP material straight from them. I ordered a SC guide and do to some random printing error, mine didn't come with an appendix. No problem, I had a new one in my hands by the end of the week.

                      I do buy all of our Readers, read alouds, and science enrichment books as cheaply as I can find them from wherever. The money I save on the enrichment read alouds allows be to buy the science books too.

                      I will never buy any MP published material from anywhere but MP. Period.

                        It gets more active this time of year until about mid-summer. If you want to buy used on FB you have to check back regularly.
