Czechia’s Knihobot, which started out in a small second-hand book shop, has become a major name in the country’s resale economy. The service allows people to get rid of their old books for cash – and has made inroads into other markets in Europe.

Knihobot started up just five years ago at a used bookshop and is now Czechia’s largest seller of books, helping ordinary people put unwanted publications back into circulation, for cash.

Sellers keep 60 percent of the price, minus CZK 29, with the money going into their own Knihobot account.
