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.)

Personalized Spreadsheet

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:

(Your Name)

3323 Stanley ave.

Prep & Process

Once your books get to our facility, we will receive, inspect,grade and process them into your spreadsheets. We will include the date we received it, the grade, and any additional information that you may want to know (Like if it is a Teacher Edition, Counterfeit, damage etc.).

List & Ship

We ask all clients request a shipment to amazon by emailing: shipments@littleowlprep.com
Once We get a Shipping Email we start by listing all items the client has in their Amazon Account, then we create a shipping plan and send out the shipment within 24-48 hours.

The Prep Process

We have a Youtube Playlist that demonstrates the typical process that your packages go through. These are older videos, we changed the layout a bit to hold more clients and services, but the processes remain the same. Check out the Playlist on Youtube.

Book Prep FAQ

Where Are You Located?

We are Located in:

3323 Stanley Ave.

How Do You List The Books?

We have custom proprietary software that we use to list your items on your behalf.  

What If I want to List my own Books?

No Problem! Our Listing service is optional. If you prefer to list yourself just let us know. You can change at anytime.

Why Do I have to Request a Shipment?

We implemented the Shipment request system back in Late May due to our large client list. Not only does this help smaller Sellers get their items out in a timely manner, it holds us accountable to our promise of 24-48 hours. 

If I purchase a Prepayment, can I get a refund?

Yes, of course! We would refund you on whatever was not fulfilled minus any Shipping costs to send them back to you.

For Example: If you get our 250 Prepayment, and we only ship 100 of your items. We would refund you for the 150 we still have left to ship, minus any shipping costs incurred.

How Do I Pay You?

We Primarily use Paypal to invoice clients after we complete their shipment. PayPal Allows users to pay with any Major Credit Card.

Do You Prep Just books?

No, We prep Everything except Food.  Food Gets too complicated. 

How Do You Handle Counterfeits?

All Receivers are trained to spot counterfeit books. If we do spot a counterfeit book we would highlight the spreadsheet line red and include the tracking number that the book came from. That way you can return it or get a refund.

How Do You Handle Returns?

If you want to return a book, you would alert us that you want to return it and send a shipping label or address to returns.tradeins@littleowlprep.com

We take care of returns within 24-48 hours. Most of the time we try to return within 24 hours.
