A powerful alternative
to paying for expensive textbooks!
Technology Textbook Trading Post is the only solution of its kind. It
provides students' associations with an extremely easy to use and reliable
online textbook service that could save their members thousands of dollars.
Your members will be extremely grateful when they save money and they
will know their students' association was responsible. By providing an
online textbook service through your website, students' will become more
aware of your association and the values it represents.
What does the service
Through this service
students are able to post all the used textbooks they would like to sell
on a system where other students can search and find the textbooks that
they would like to buy. When students find the textbook they are looking
for they can buy it from other students, compare the price with local
bookstores who are advertising on the service and compare the price with
over 20 online merchants including, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, eCampus
and more. This textbook solution is the only complete solution available
to students' associations. It is designed specifically to save students'
money. In an increased effort to save even more of students' money, we
do not handle the sales transactions of any textbooks. We leave the transactions
in the hands of the students by providing the information needed to either
purchase the textbook from a retailer or to contact the student selling
How does it work?
- Create your
storefront - Using
the powerful TextForSale.com Textbook Engine, we will create an online
storefront that matches the look and feel of your existing website.
Your textbook service can be customized to match any colour scheme and
personalized with the students' associations logo. You can add a list
of all programs and courses offered by your college or university.
- Link to your
website - If your students' association already has a website you
can link directly to the textbook service. If you do not have a website
you may request that we make one for you. Your association will gain
the most if you have a great website to provide information on your
services and events.
- In order to get members to your website you will need to advertise
properly. You need to advertise at the end of a semester to get people
to post their old textbooks and at the start of the new semester to
get students to buy textbooks. We can offer a wealth of insight into
what has worked and not worked in the past. This is the most critical
stage in getting your textbook service off to a great start.
- Monitor Success
- Using a password protected login on your storefront, your students'
association will be able to access real-time reports on the usage and
success of your storefront. You will be able to see how many of your
members are registered, the number of books they are selling and how
much money they have saved and much more.
