Last autumn Mecenat and the owner of Kurslitteratur.se conducted negotiations and before Christmas the parties agreed. Through the purchase, Mecenat takes a considerably stronger position in study materials, which makes it possible for students to easily find their books at the best price.
Mecenat thus takes over an established site with good technical solutions, a well-known trading place for the students and a wide range of used literature with high turnover.
– Study materials are a central part of a students’ everyday life. With Kurslitteratur.se, we can take advantage of coordination benefits and always offer the students the literature they need at the best price. If they don’t find a used version of the book they want, we offer student discounts at the major online bookstores. In that way we can always offer the best possible access and really good prices for the books regardless of whether it is new or used, says Jonas Levin, CEO of Mecenat AB.
Kurslitteratur.se will continue to operate under its own brand and with the same setup as before. Users add their own book titles, agree on a price, and arrange delivery and payment.
-This complements our offer to the students in a very good way and we get the opportunity to market the service to considerably more students than before. We will also get an increased traffic volume to Mecenat.com, benefiting all our partners, concludes Jonas Levin.
