FAQ

What is iFlipd?

iFlipd is the only place to get textbooks and video games on a weekly pay-as-you-go basis. Rent for an affordable weekly price, and either return when you’re done, or pay off the book or game and it is yours to keep!

As a Student, iFlipd can save you a ton of money on textbooks by allowing you to make weekly payments vs. paying for expensive textbooks up front. Same for gaming—think of it as being able to try before you buy.

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.

iFlipd is committed to making college more affordable and minimizing student debt. We want our customers to learn the power of only paying for what you need and not taking on financial commitments that you can’t handle.

So, I can rent eBooks and printed textbooks using iFlipd?

Yep! iFlipd uses a pay-as-you-go model on both eBooks and Print books, which means you can rent textbooks for seven days at a time for a flat fee. The rental automatically renews every seven days even days until you return the book, or reach the designated number of “weeks to own” shown for each book. It’s the ultimate in rental flexibility. Rent any book for any amount of time, and never pay more than the list price.

Do the video games come in the case?

Yep! Games come in the original case when available. If you pay off your game you get to keep the case, too.

How many video games can I get?

You can have two (2) games out at one time with iFlipd. Want to get more games? Just return one or use the Pay Off feature to buy it and you’ll be able to order more.

What forms of payment does iFlipd accept?

We currently accept credit cards, debit cards, PayPal & Venmo (mobile only). We may occasionally ask for multiple forms of payment so we have a back-up payment method on file should funds run low in one of your accounts. Your weekly charges will show up as a weekly payment to BT’IFLIPD.COM. 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 BT’IFLIPD.COM

How am I billed?

The rental fee is based on the price per week shown for the item, and recurs weekly until either the item is returned (be sure to go through the return process in your account), or you pay off the item. If you keep the item for the total number of weeks-to-own shown, charges stop and you own it.

Your payment method is charged for the first week when your order is placed. For eBooks, the rental term starts immediately after order is placed and the billing cycle recurs every 7 days until the book is returned or owned. For Hardback/Paperback books, games and access cards, the rental term starts when the textbook is scanned as delivered by the shipping company. The next weekly billing cycle starts 7 days after book is delivered and recurs every 7 days until the book is returned or owned.

What if I don’t have enough funds on my credit card account to cover the charge of the rental

You are responsible to maintain a valid method of payment on your account. If you default on your weekly payment for more than two weeks you will be charged a $10 missed payment fee for each item you default on. We really don’t like charging missed payment fees, so we’ll send you email messages if you miss a payment to remind you to update your payment method. After 30 days of missed payment the full amount of the book will become due and you will be handed over to a collections agency as agreed to in iFlipd’s terms and conditions.

How do I return my print book or video game?

Returning your physical book or video game is easy:

  • Select the book/game you want to return from your Bookshelf of your Order History page
  • Click the Return button.
  • Go through the return process and download the return label
  • Print the return label (Important: you must use the label provided by iFlipd—only when it is scanned does the rental stop)
  • Pack up the book/game - One book/game. One box.
  • Ship it.

One book or game. One box.

It’s important to package one book/game, per box, per return label. We determine when to stop billing your account based on when the return label is scanned at the warehouse. If you are returning more than one book/game you should put them each in their own box with their own return label. Do not put them in the same box with one label or you will continue to be charged for the one who’s shipping label is not scanned.

How do I return my iFlipd eBook?

To stop renting and return your eBook, follow these easy steps:

  • Login to iFlipd and click on the book from your Bookshelf or Order History
  • Click the Return button.
  • You will no longer have access to the eBook and your charges will stop

You can rent this same book in the future and we'll keep track of what you have already paid towards owning it.

Can I return my access card?

No. Since access card codes can only be assigned to one person we can’t accept returns. You will be charged for the full price of the access card across the number of “weeks to own” shown in the listing on iFlipd. You can also pay off your access card early if you like.

How do I track my order?

Easy. We send you a shipping confirmation email with a tracking number when the book is shipped. If you miss the email you can log into your account and go to your Order History page to find a tracking number.

These POINTS you keep mentioning, how do I get them and how do I use them?
