The agreement provides three payment models:
- Payment in Full by QMUL School
QMUL agrees a title list and pricing for required titles with John Smith’s/Kortext and then makes an order of a fixed number of titles and is responsible for payment in full.
- Part Payment by QMUL School and Student
QMUL agrees a title list and pricing for the required titles with John Smith’s/Kortext and provides students with a ‘voucher’ or credited smart card for part-payment towards the titles. The student decides whether to make the purchase and, where they do, make a payment to John Smith’s/Kortext, offering the ‘voucher’ or credited smart card in part-payment. John Smith’s/Kortext invoice QMUL for their part-payment only where they can evidence that the purchase has been made and the voucher or smartcard credit has been redeemed by the student.
- Payment in Full by Student
QMUL agrees a title list and pricing for the required titles with John Smith’s/Kortext and then promotes this offer to your students. The student decides whether to make the purchase and, where they do, make full payment to John Smith’s/Kortext.
Where the transaction involves full or part-payment by the student, payment methods include payment by debit/credit card online and/or at a designated place on campus, e.g. campus bookshop. All payment methods offered are provided in a secure environment.
