I Love My Library cards allow your library card to double as a prepaid checking card. So, while the card can be used to check out your favorite library books and content, it can also be used to buy any other resources you may need. In return, your library receives a portion of all fees for cards issued and activated through the library.
Buy It Now allows patrons to buy books, movies, and more from outside retailers through their library's website. Best of all, a portion of each purchase is put right back into your library. Any purchase made through the service, including furniture, clothing, and more, will add to your library's funds.
With BLUEcloud Commerce, your library can accept credit and debit card payments online, at the desk, and on the go. No longer do patrons have to pay fines on site; transactions can be processed online through the library's website. Payment options are simplified for patrons while libraries benefit from a small percentage of each patron transaction.
