Deliver access and engagement with
digital course materials.
RedShelf helps thousands of colleges offer digital course materials right alongside the new and used 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 affordable 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.
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.
Students purchase access codes on a complimentary store-branded eCommerce site.
