A Win-Win for Students and Bookstores

When you implement Direct Textbook's Campus Link or Campus Advantage, your students are able to get the best possible textbook price. And you're able to make money from the sales, whether your students ultimately buy from you or someone else. It's a win-win for students and your bookstore, and a new revenue stream for your college.

Here's an example
  1. Bob goes to your online campus bookstore to buy a copy of Human Biology for his Biology 1102 class. Your price for a new copy is $110.
  2. Bob would like to save some money, so he consults your Campus Advantage comparison chart and finds a used copy in good condition for sale on a competitor's site for $50.
  3. Bob buys the textbook from and saves $60. But rather than have lost the sale, your bookstore receives 10% commission, or $5, without doing anything.

With Direct Textbook, your students save more money while you make more money. There's no better solution.
