Save time
SAVE TIME
Your entire wantlist from wholesale to marketplace sourcing can be managed with one easy-to-use tool. You will no longer get multiple shipments, multiple invoices or have to search the marketplace for the books you need.
 
Low-risk marketplace sourcing
LOW-RISK MARKETPLACE SOURCING
One of the main problems with acquiring materials from the marketplace is the risk of counterfeit material. With SimpleSource, the experts at MBS will vet every book sourced from the marketplace to make sure your store is protected.
 
SimpleSource is a great way to procure dynamically priced used books from MBS. We really like how we can set up different 'shopping' cycles and see the big picture for our wantlist by checking on marketplace status, order fulfillment from MBS and adjusting how our list is being worked — daily if desired.

HOW THE SKYLINE COLLEGE BOOKSTORE SAVES TIME AND GETS MORE USED BOOKS

“The last couple weeks I have been dealing with hiring committees and board presentations and things like that. I don’t have time to hunt the marketplace for books. I had my SimpleSource bins started in early May. It was good to go through graduation, middle college graduation, summer rush and everything. You set it and forget it. SimpleSource does its thing, and I can get other work done while my wantlist is being automatically reworked for traditional wholesale inventory and marketplace inventory. It’s so much more than the old school rework system. Yeah, I like it.”

Kevin Chak
Store Manager, Skyline College Bookstore

THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY BOOK STORE HELPS IMPROVE COLLEGE AFFORDABILITY

“Like most stores, we shop multiple places for used books. But if you are going to leave your list with one company to work it continuously, I don’t know why SimpleSource wouldn’t be a fantastic option for your store. You’re sourcing from the largest wholesaler with the biggest inventory available. It makes no sense not to do it.”
