So, I can rent eBooks or 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.

What forms of payment does iFlipd accept?

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 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 book, and recurs weekly until either the book is returned according to your account return process, or the weeks-to-own shown for the book is reached. If you keep the book for the total number of weeks-to-own shown for the book, charges stop and you own the book.

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, 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 book you default on. 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.
