Buy It Now Available for HIP and e-Library Users

Have you ever wondered how to get more money back into your library? The SirsiDynix Community Funded Services team has now brought the Buy It Now option to Horizon Information Portal (HIP) and e-Library users. Now, putting money back into your library is easy!

Buy It Now not only allows users to purchase library materials from outside retailers, but it also lets patrons purchase anything from that retailer (Amazon, for example) and a percentage of the purchase will go right back into your library. This increases library revenue while giving patrons countless buying options.

Buy It Now comes with no minimum requirements for HIP users. For e-Library users to take advantage of the product, the minimum requirement is SP3.  

Benefits of SirsiDynix Buy It Now:

  • Ongoing revenue: Buy It Now is a tool that works in the background and can perpetually add funds to your library all while you are able to tend to your regular patrons during business hours.

  • No cost to you or your patrons: Buy It Now is free to implement and patrons who use it will not accrue any fees for using it.

  • Easy to implement: Buy It Now can be fully implemented and running within minutes and can be just as easily removed if you so desire.

  • Help patrons build their own libraries: Did you know that 60% of frequent library users buy books that they originally borrowed from the library? With Buy It Now, library patrons who love a book so much can purchase it and add to their very own book collection.

Buy It Now is mutually beneficial to staff and patrons alike.
