  • Why does QPay do textbooks?

    Our mission here at QPay is to make things cheaper and more convenient for students. We set up partnerships with various suppliers and made a promise to put forward the cheapest textbooks for students, period.

  • Are you really the cheapest in AU?

    Yup! If you find anything cheaper, we’d love to hear from you. Not only will we give you 10% off the price you show us, but we’ll also knock off $10 the price if it’s your first textbook purchase in QPay.

  • So how do I buy textbooks?

    It’s really easy! You can hop onto the QPay iPhone/Android app ( and tap the textbook icon for your uni campus. From there, you can search for textbooks against your course codes, title, ISBN, or price :)

  • What kind of textbooks do you sell?

    We sell used and new textbooks :) We will be adding the ability to rent out textbooks as well, so watch this space!

  • How is this easier than going to the store on campus?

    When you jump onto QPay to buy anything, we automatically fill in details so your purchase is as close to a 1-tap payment as possible. From there, we’ll ship your book directly to your address.

  • How much does this cost?

    Other than the cost of the textbooks, nothing! Shipping is entirely free.

  • When does the money get deducted from my account?

    To make sure we get you the best price, we get a quote from different suppliers, and put every order through manually. We will only ever charge you once we can confirm our price is the cheapest, and once your book is delivered
