Q. How does it work?
A. Occupy The Bookstore is powered by Texts.com, the first great textbook exchange. It works by identifying the book in question on the bookstore website, and then automatically generating a list of online prices and student deals for that title.

Q. How do you make money?
A. We've partnered with all the top textbook companies (Amazon, Chegg, etc.) to provide the best possible deals. When we help drive business to their services, they reward us with an affiliate commission. Please note that this does not in any way effect your price -- you'll always get the best deal.
Q. Does Occupy The Bookstore slow down my browser or track my activity?
A. Of course not. The extension only activates when you're on your bookstore's website; at all other times, it's in a dormant state and will not use any resources. Simply load up Chrome's built-in task manager (Window >> Task Manager) to see for yourself.
Q. How do I uninstall this extension if I don't like it?
A. We are pretty sure you will like it, but if you don't, simply go to your extensions manager in Chrome (Window >> Extensions) and deactivating the plugin is a simple one-click process.
Q. I have more questions, how can I get in touch?
A. Simply send an e-mail to admin@Texts.com and we'll respond straight away.
