Steps for institutions to buy eBooks

Institutions can, as is the case with textbooks, buy eBooks on behalf of their students!

To do so, an official order can be placed for an eBook in the same manner as for printed books. Future Managers will, upon receiving payment, provide institutions with download options to enable any of the following two (2) options:


Option 1: Institution pays, but students download individually

1. An institution follows the normal ordering process to order an eBook from Future Managers.
2. Such an order must be accompanied by a list of usernames and email addresses of all the students who will receive a specific eBook. The student’s college or school email address is preferred since the student will use this email address when downloading the Future Managers app.
3. This must be sent to Future Managers in an Excel spreadsheet containing the following fields:

  • Name
  • Surname
  • Email address (which will be the username)
  • eBook(s) (if more than one eBook is purchase per student, these must be added in columns)

4. Once payment is confirmed and a student’s email address and password is loaded on the eBook platform (by Future Managers) the student will receive an email with login instructions and will be able to download the eBook(s) onto his/her device of choice.
5. The purchased eBook will now show as “Owned” in the Future Managers app and the student can proceed with the download.
6. NB! It is essential for students to use the same email address and password as the one the institution provided to Future Managers when registering in the Future Managers app for the first time.


Option 2: 
Institution pays and installs the app on a device

1. An institution follows the normal ordering process via email, or ordering on the Future Managers website from Future Managers.
2. Future Managers will (once the order is confirmed) provide the institution with detailed login instructions.
3. The institution will download the Future Managers app on up to three devices, and login with the login details provided by Future Managers.
4. The purchased eBooks will now show as “Owned” in the Future Managers app and the institution can proceed with the download.
5. NB! It is important to remember that access is only granted on up to three (3) devices that the institution has chosen as the nominated devices. Students won’t be able to access these eBooks on their own devices.
