We welcome Packback to our Catapult community! Packback was created to bring students the best possible value on their textbooks. By allowing students to rent their books on a per-day basis ($3-$5/day), Packback gives students the ability to pay for books only as they need them. By offering a rent-to-own-model, Packback gives students the power to choose whether or not to purchase textbooks. Students save money by getting the chance to pay for a book only when they need it. Publishers win by getting tapped back into revenue that had been lost to the used book market.
Packback is led by Co-Founders Kasey Gandham and Mike Shannon, who started the company in 2012 while still in college.
