More and more students are turning to textbook rental to reduce their course materials costs. With our dynamic rental rebates, you can recoup costs for your textbook rental program, so you can expand your offerings and protect the textbook market share of your store.

  • Quotes on more titles

    We make offers for titles other supplies offer nothing for, allowing you to expand your store offerings and recoup some of the costs of textbook rental.

  • Aggressive rebates

    Our rebates consistently beat out traditional wholesalers, so you can trust you're getting paid the most for your textbook rental inventory.

  • Fast quotes & fast pay

    We usually return a quote the same day we receive an inventory list, and send payment within 10 days of receiving a shipment.

Market-Based Dynamic Pricing


College bookstores know the challenges of buying and selling textbooks with a constantly changing market value. Our market-based pricing offers a cheaper way for campus bookstores to buy textbooks wholesale. We set our prices by analyzing trends across the industry, which makes our costs a fraction of what the traditional wholesalers charge.

  • Lower inventory costs

    With our market-based pricing, lower inventory costs so you can offer better prices to students and guarantee a wider market share for your bookstore.
