FIVE PURCHASING OPTIONS
With the eCampus Virtual Bookstores your institution can offer your students up to five purchasing options, the most options available in the industry. Today's students are internet savvy and if they are not offered the best price with the most options then they will often go elsewhere to find a better deal. Your custom virtual bookstore may be set up so students may purchase new, used and electronic textbooks, may rent their textbooks and may purchase from our eCampus.com Marketplace.
We stock your inventory in our distribution center so when your students order online their items ship out immediately. In order to stock your inventory, we need to know what books professors are adopting. We have a simple process to obtain adoption information!
- You get us your adoption list via a template we provide or through data feeds set up by our IT Departments.
- We spend time researching your required textbooks.
- We give you feedback if we find problems.
- You review our feedback and work with us to finalize the list.
- We order and stock your inventory.

We will create custom apparel and merchandise at NO COST for your institution to feature on your virtual bookstore. Students can purchase a tee-shirt along with their textbooks to show their spirit. eCampus.com will obtain any specific supplies needed to go along with a course. For example, does Algebra II require a specific calculator? Well, students can find it right alongside their required textbook on the virtual bookstore.
eCampus.com will create custom printed coursepacks for your institution. Coursepacks allow professors the ability to combine any materials they come across that will help their students learn in one, custom printed packet. We will obtain copyright clearance and provide these materials as a hardcopy or in an electronic format (or both).
