Pro Compares all online sources directly from the university bookstore's page
Occupy The Bookstore works as a plugin that works with most schools' "find my textbooks" function. Once the needed textbooks are given, the plugin compiles a list of all available sources with a price comparison. Occupy The Bookstore doesn't replace popular textbook retailers. Instead, it helps users find the best source.
Pro Textbook information doesn't need to be re-typed
Many textbook website aggregators require ISBN numbers to be typed in. With Occupy The Bookstore, information is entered automatically once the bookstore website reveals what is needed.
Pro Displays shipping cost
In addition to displaying textbook prices, shipping costs are also listed.
Con Not compatible with every bookstore
Because this is a plugin, the information is scraped off the university bookstore website. If the university bookstore's web address ends in Neebo.com, BKSTR.com, or BNCollege.com, the plugin will work. If the university bookstore doesn't use these services, it won't be compatible with the plugin yet.
Con Only works with Chrome
While a Firefox add-on is on the way, the only compatible browser as of 1/19/2015 is Chrome.
