Order books for your child in a few simple steps!

This video will guide you through the purchasing process.

Logging in

  1. Navigate to the Box of Books shop.

  2. Create an account by entering your mobile number or your email address.

  3. A code will be sent to your mobile/email. Please enter the code to sign in.

Adding a Student

Click 'Add a Student to Account' , and enter your child's student email address.

If the email address is unknown at the time of purchase, simply click the 'Not Sure' button and follow the prompts to enter your child's details.

If you wish to add another student, you can click 'Add a student' again, which will take you through the same steps.

Buying Books

  1. Click 'Buy Books' under the student's name.

  2. For each student, select which booklist you wish to purchase from.

  3. Select in the drop-down menu next to the books you require which textbook format you would like to purchase.

  4. After you have selected all the items you need, press 'Continue' to proceed.

The 3 common format options are:

  • Digital on BoB & Physical: A physical copy of the book that comes with a complimentary digital copy in your child's Box of Books account. While ownership of the physical copy is permanent, the digital text is valid for the lease period noted under the format option (typically 15 or 27 months).

  • Digital on BoB: A digital copy of the book which will be accessed in your child's Box of Books account.

  • Physical only: A book which is only available as a physical copy, with no digital component.

The price will appear next to the item if the item has been added to your cart.

If you want to remove an item from your cart, selecting either "Choose if needed" or "Already own it" from the drop-down menu will exclude the item from your order.

Billing & Shipping Details

Please enter your Billing details as prompted, and ensure you enter your email address and billing address correctly. Review your Shipping details in the section underneath.

Please note a shipping and handling fee and payment processing fee will apply to orders. Multiple students from the same school are only charged a single shipping and handling fee if the purchase is made in one order.

Once you select 'Continue', you will be able to review your order. Enter your payment information and click 'Submit Payment' to confirm your purchase.

Accessing Digital Books

Congratulations! Your order has now gone through. How can your child access their resources? If you have purchased a digital textbook, they can access their digital resources by visiting their school portal and logging in with their school credentials. Click here for more information on accessing your digital resources.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Box of Books team through our in-app support function (located at the bottom right of the screen).

Forgot a textbook??

If you have completed an order and realised you have missed a book, you will have to place another order. Unfortunately our ordering system does not allow us to alter the order once payment has been made.

You can place a new order via our shop at

On the Family Members page, please scroll down past recent orders and click "Buy Books" under your child's name.

We can offer a refund on your original order if it has not yet been shipped to give you the option to correctly order all the textbooks required.
