Over the years, we have partnered with major software publishers and thousands of schools and their academic resellers to facilitate the distribution of
discounted software. Our technology and WebStores reduce the distribution and verification costs allowing us to pass
even more savings on to you.
Two main ways to get Academic Discount Software
The first one is through the OnTheHub eStore, which does not require school or reseller participation. This store is open to most countries worldwide and carries exclusive curriculum-based software.

In most cases your school does their best to make sure that you get the software you need for your classes at the lowest prices possible. To do this, they contact one or more academic resellers to get licensing agreements in place.

- We provide the secure technology and platform that allows thousands of schools worldwide to distribute academic discount software to their members in a secure and cost-effective manner

Your school WebStore would be the one that carries the software titles your school or department is allowed to distribute under their licensing agreement(s). The prices you will find in your school WebStore are unique or considered exclusive, as you will not find them anywhere else.
