iFlipd Announces Launch of Pay-As-You-Go Digital Textbook Platform
Portland, OR, April 7, 2016 - iFlipd announced the launch of its innovative pay-as-you-go digital textbook rental service today. The industry’s first pay-as-you-go model empowers students to break up the cost of textbooks and only pay for the weeks they really need them. iFlipd already has 2,000 students pre-registered using the platform nationwide.
The cost of textbooks has increased 1041 percent over the last three decades and students spend an average of $1200 annually. With iFlipd, students can now rent a digital textbook for as short as one week. Once students finish using a book early they can flip the digital textbook back into the community where fellow classmates and friends can pick up the digital book at a reduced price. Each time a flipped book is rented by another student they earn rewards towards a free rental.
“It’s no secret that the cost of textbooks can be a huge financial burden for students everywhere. iFlipd offers an alternative solution providing students greater financial flexibility than semester-long rentals,” Kati Radizwon, iFlipd CEO and Founder. “Our pay-as-you-go model allows students to rent textbooks as needed, and only pay for the time that they use them. Students can read books on any device while saving hundreds of dollars per year.”
iFlipd recently integrated with Datalogics and their interactive eBook solution, Active Textbook. Active Textbook’s learning platform allows iFlipd to enable sharing capabilities so students can share notes through the platform. The note-sharing feature allows students to access the notes of previous digital textbook users through the reader interface which is fully interactive supporting note highlighting, annotations, audio, video and search capabilities.
New users can receive a free one-week rental by signing up at: www.iflipd.com
