Q: What is iFlipd?
A1: As a Student, iFlipd saves you a lot of money on Print and eBook textbooks by allowing you to make weekly payments vs paying for expensive textbooks up front. We simply lower the barrier to entry for expensive textbooks. Our eBook option gives you the flexibility of reading on any device, and taking notes directly in the reader.
A2: As a Professor or Instructional Designer, iFlipd gives you an easy platform to find content, upload your own, and easily push it out to your students. All this with the benefit of saving your students money.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: You can rent textbooks for just $2 to $35 per week, which gives you access to that book for a seven-day period. We take the full price of the book and break it into small weekly payments over an 8 to 10 week period. If you only need it a week or two, you only pay for the weeks you use the book. If you need the book the full semester, you pay each week until you own the print book or the perpetual license for the ebook. There are never any monthly subscription fees!
Here’s how our weekly payments are calculated (don’t worry, you won’t have to do that math, we do it all for you):
Q: SO, I CAN RENT EBOOKS OR PRINT TEXTBOOKS USING IFLIPD?
A: Yes! iFlipd uses a pay-as-you-go model on both eBooks and Print textbooks, which means you can rent textbooks for seven days at a time for a flat fee. If you need to keep the book longer than a week, that's fine too! The rental automatically renews on your method of payment and you'll keep access to it for an additional seven days. After you pass that test, just return the book. Need it again to study for the final later in the semester? For eBooks, just pick it up and all of your bookmarks and notes will be there. If you rent the eBook enough times that the full price of the book is reached, you will have a perpetual license to the eBook.
Q: WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
A: We currently accept credit cards, debit cards, PayPal and you can connect to GoFundMe accounts. We may occasionally ask for multiple forms of payment so we have a back-up payment method on file should fund run low in one of your accounts. Your weekly charges will show up as a weekly payment to ""Iflipd 5036733914 Or". If you are using your parent’s credit card, you may want to alert them that there will be a small charge each week coming from "Iflipd 5036733914 Or".
