Lexington, KY (Vocus) August 16, 2010
eCampus.com, a leading Internet textbook retailer, has catapulted its textbook rental program into a major revenue contributor. Because of an expanded rental list and high customer satisfaction for the textbook rental program, more college students are turning to eCampus.com for their textbook rental needs.
“We are very pleased with the feedback we have received from our textbook rental program. College student interest in textbook rentals have exceeded our expectations. We remain excited to be able to offer college students the latest low price option for textbooks”, says Matt Montgomery, President and CEO of eCampus.com.
Renting textbooks saves students up to 90%, and the eCampus.com rental process has been designed to be simple and easy to use. Students can simply search for the textbook they need for class and rent it. At the end of the semester, students return the book at no cost. eCampus.com even pays for the return shipping. Textbook rentals aren’t the only college textbook thing exciting Mr. Montgomery. eCampus.com is also showing significant growth in etextbook sales. Plus, with more used textbooks in stock and ready to ship than ever before, eCampus.com is well positioned to continue to offer America’s college students more low-priced textbook alternatives than any other online textbook store.
“Most students buy some and rent some as a practical matter. eCampus.com makes it easy for a student to get all of their textbooks in one place. Our company has been designed to accommodate student buying behavior,” continues Mr. Montgomery. “At eCampus.com students can rent, buy new, buy used, buy electronic or buy and sell off our student marketplace." The focus at eCampus.com is a wide variety of textbook purchasing options.
Renting has become a viable option for college students, but it’s not necessarily practical for a student to rent all of their textbooks. eCampus.com has conducted several focus groups and found that 6 out of 10 students prefer to keep some of their textbooks for future use, but not all. This is a big reason eCampus.com has received so much acclaim online for their “Rent ’em or Buy ’em” campaign. It is apparent that whatever new innovations surface in the years to come, eCampus.com will be there to make sure students get the best value for their textbook dollars.
Since its founding in July of 1999, eCampus.com has grown into a major online retailer providing cheap textbooks for college and high school students. eCampus.com’s stated mission is to provide the easiest, fastest, and cheapest way for college and university students to rent textbooks, buy textbooks and sell textbooks. eCampus.com believes the Internet buying experience should be fun and that shopping for textbooks should be as fast and convenient as possible. The company makes a personal commitment to every customer that eCampus.com will be the best source for everything they need.
