This article is for PARENTS.

If you’re a parent, purchasing your child’s prescribed textbooks and other resources from Snapplify is easy.

Once your school has given you the go-ahead, you will be able to complete your purchase in Engage. The school will have set up the prescribed book lists, and once all the right lists have been allocated to your child, you'll find all the books you need in one place.

There's no need to search for individual books, no risk of purchasing the wrong one, and absolutely no start-of-term hassles.

Reviewing your order and completing your purchase in Engage

  1. Log in to Engage using your child’s login details.
  2. On the Engage Home page, join any joinable groups you need to in order to be allocated specific books. You'll only need to do this if your school has asked you to; otherwise, proceed to the next step.
  3. From the Home page, click 'My Reading' on the left-hand side of your screen.
  4. On the 'My Reading' page, click the green 'Review Order' button. (You can also click the ‘Review Prescribed Order’ button at the bottom of the ‘Groups’ block on the Engage Home page if your school has enabled joinable groups.)
  5. On the next screen, you can review the titles that have been allocated to your child’s order.
  6. If your school has enabled hardcopy purchasing and there are titles on your order that have a hardcopy edition available, this option will be reflected here.

    Using the checkbox selector, you can indicate which edition you wish to order.

    The hardcopy price may differ from the digital edition and your total at the bottom of the page will be adjusted according to which product you choose.
  7. Should you wish to remove any titles (if, for instance, you already have a copy of a textbook), you can select specific books using the checkbox selector to the left of each title, then click the ‘Remove Item(s)’ button.

    When asked if you're sure you want to remove the title(s), select 'Yes'.
  8. Once you've removed any titles, the page will be updated to reflect the titles that are still part of your child’s order.

    If you make a mistake and remove the wrong title, simply click ‘Back’ or navigate to 'My Reading' (in the toolbar on the left-hand side of your screen), to refresh the list and begin the process again.

  9. Once you have double-checked that your order is correct, click the 'Next' button underneath your order total.
  10. Enter your details in the pop-up window and select 'Next'.

  11. Complete your delivery information then select 'Place Order'.
  12. When prompted, you need to enter your child's login details again. After logging in, you'll be automatically redirected to the payment page, where you can select your preferred payment method.
If you have already purchased ebooks on your prescribed list, these will be marked as 'Owned' on the Review Order screen.

Since hardcopy books can be purchased repeatedly, you will continue to be able to select and order hardcopy books.
