Offer Digital Materials

In Your Physical Store.

RedShelf helps hundreds of colleges offer affordable and engaging digital course materials right alongside the print options available in their physical and virtual stores. We’ve developed seamless integrations with all major POS providers to provide students a frictionless experience purchasing and accessing more than one million digital titles.

How it Works:

Your Store, Our Tech

RedShelf provides three options for selling affordable, engaging digital course materials through the point-of-sale.


In-Store Sales

Students learn about digital options on shelf tags posted next to printed textbooks. The shelf tags are scanned at your register and an access code is automatically printed on the student's receipt through a seamless POS system integration.


Store Website Sales

Students purchase access codes on your existing store website, via POS integration.


Whitelabel Sales

Students purchase access codes on a complimentary store-branded eCommerce site.
