Whether you are a pro at ordering from MBS or new to the textbook ordering process, MBS is here to help. We provide college stores with a one-stop shop for all of your textbook ordering needs and outstanding customer service support. If you haven’t already submitted a bin-and-hold wantlist to MBS, now is a great time to get started.
MBS has a strong inventory of used and new books. Submit your store’s wantlist to us as soon as possible to improve wantlist fulfillment and provide students with more low-cost textbook options so they can select what best fits their learning style and budget.
Best practices to maximize your wantlist fulfillment:
- Send in your list as soon as possible. You can always add more adoptions as you get them.
- Request to have your wantlist reworked to ensure your list is compared against our inventory on a daily basis.
- Keep your bin open for as long as you can because with reworks, the longer it is open, the more books you can get.
Additionally, your store might want to consider:
- Discussing opening buyback options with your MBS representative – MBS has a variety of options available to help stores offer students more opportunities to sell back their books.
- Adding rental and/or guaranteed buyback programs next term – Rentals and guaranteed buyback are a great way to offer students cost savings and attract more foot traffic. Read about how MBS can help your store with rental and guaranteed buyback.
As always, contact your MBS representative if you have any questions or need assistance.
