some terminology...

New - Brand new textbooks.

Used - Like a traditional used bookstore. All the books are sold out of the same storefront, so you pay just one shipping fee for your entire purchase.

Marketplace - In a marketplace, individual sellers (students, small booksellers, etc.) list their new and used textbooks for sale. Prices are almost always better here than in a used bookstore, but you'll have to pay a separate shipping fee for each book sold by a different seller.
