Pimp My Book utilizes Grades as a form of scaling the Condition of book to its potential Purchase/Selling price point. So for example: A high grade book, Grade A being the best condition, will be the most costly when purchasing from PMB as well as the most lucrative when selling to PMB.
Grades fall in a range between A and C and when seen on a product will mean the following:
Grade A – Excellent Quality product, No markings or Damage inside or outside of the book.
Grade B – Great Quality product, Slight markings (being either pencil, pen, highlighter, etc.) inside and/or outside of the product and No Damage to the books contents or cover.
Grade C – Good Quality product, Markings (being either pencil, pen, highlighter, etc.) inside and/or outside of the product and Potential Damage to the books contents and/or cover.
