Order Pre-Packaged Textbook Packs for your Students, per Grade

Your school nominates Red Pepper Online as your official textbook supplier. You provide us with your full textbook list per grade or year of study for the forthcoming year. We check that the books you have prescribed are available and, if not, suggest alternative editions.

We compile an order form per grade or year of study where parents (or learners) can select the books they wish to order.

Your school sends these order forms out to parents together with an order cut-off date.

Parents (or learners) either deposit their payments into our account and attach proof of payment to their order form, or provide us with their credit card details on their order form.  

Parents or learners will be given the option of paying either on straight or budget. Red Pepper Online collects your school’s order forms on a nominated date and place bulk orders with our suppliers.

Books are then pre-packaged per student per grade or year of study and delivered to your school or educational institution for distribution before the start of the new academic year.

For late registrations, we will create a page on our web site for your school or educational institution where parents or learners can purchase their books independently.
