Buyback Asia started out in NUS as a brick and mortar used textbook operator back in 2006. In 2010, Buyback Asia acquired BookinBookout.com and re-launched itself as a free online used textbook marketplace. It has since become one of the leading tertiary textbook portals in Singapore.

In 2013, Buyback Asia was acquired by Mind Asia, a forward-looking company that seeks to maximize internet technology and innovation to fulfil the demands of Asia in the 21st century. Today, BookinBookout.com continues to be a leader in the online used textbooks market in Singapore and is constantly innovating itself to better serve the needs of students in Singapore.

Our philosophy has not changed since day one. We still strongly believe in providing a valuable service to students and at the same time create a socially responsible and economically sustainable business.

What this means is...

  • We create value for students by finding the cheapest source of textbooks
  • Encouraging the usage of used textbooks as a means of being environmentally-friendly


  • Offer a fuss-free website to fulfil the textbook needs of students
  • Increase the popularity of BiBo in Singapore
  • Spreading the concept across Asia

We look forward to your support in promoting our cause.

Wishing you a Happy New Year,
The Mind Asia Team
