The Service That Started A Prep Center
We started this prep center with book prep almost three years ago, back when we were a smaller prep service. We continue to offer the same great service, with our trained team of professionals we are able to inspect and grade you books with the highest quality. All Receivers at Little Owl are able to grade accordingly to Amazon's Grading Standards and have at least one year experience dealing with books. Everyone at Little Owl is also trained to spot any undesired books like teacher editions or, the ever growing problem of counterfeit books. Our philosophy is a pretty simple one, grade according to Amazon's standards and ship it out within a timely manner. That is it. No Fuss! We also love being open about our practices, below is the entire process from start to finish on how we handle all stages of prepping when it comes to your books.

The Sign Up & Process of Book Prep
The Sign Up
First stop is filling out this form. The form gives us general information about you and what type of service you want to be set up with or want more information for. Once this is done we can then email you back accordingly answering your question or setting up your account. We typically email back within 24 hours. (You only need to submit the form once and we will get back to you.)
After signing up on the form within 24 hours we will send you a personalized spreadsheet. This is how we track everything going in and out of the prep center. Only you and Little Owl will have access to it unless you share it with other parties. The Basic information we need is the ISBN/ASIN/UPC and the Title/Product Description of the item, but we give plenty of space for optional data!
Setting Up Permissions
For our Book Prep Service we do require a Professional Seller Account. Setting up third party access is easy we only require the following: Manage FBA Inventory/Shipments, Add a Product, Upload Inventory. Those are all the permissions we require, we don't need anything else. If you don't know how to give permissions click the button below, we have a walk-through video that demonstrates how it is done. (If you are only doing trade-ins, you may skip this step.)
Sending Us Your Books
After you get your spreadsheet and set up the user permissions you are ready to go, you are free to send us your inventory! The only requirement is to put your name on your package! You can use this example below:
