eBooks for Schools

eBooks for Schools, a program created by TecKnoQuest, LLC, provides a way for education organizations to take advantage of ebooks and digital learning materials as teaching tools as well as a fundraising opportunity. Each organization is provided with an individually branded online store stocked with over 50,000 digital products specifically geared toward teaching and learning. All the aspects of the store are managed by TecKnoQuest including payment processing, customer service, and product management. The school or organization’s responsibility is to promote their store to their community, receiving a percentage of each sale that is generated.

Main points:

  • Receive compensation from each sale made through the individually branded online store
  • Encourage reading & learning skills through the use of digital materials
  • Encourage teachers to incorporate digital materials into their classroom
  • Provide an avenue for stakeholders to contribute to the school or organization
  • Access multiple publishers and resources through one source
  • Regular newsletters to customers including special offers, updates, and new products.
  • All customers will receive an automatic 5% discount off of the retail price.
  • Rewards program for every customer.

How It Works

A unique storefront and code is created for each organization which provides the ability to direct traffic to each store. The school or organization then encourages teachers, parents, and other stakeholders to use the store for purchases of educational materials. TecKnoQuest takes care of the rest of the details including processing orders, handling customer service, managing publishers, and running reports. Compensation is paid on a quarterly basis with a $50 minimum payment.
