Now, when you would like to purchase multiple products from different publishers through the Co-op, you can do so in one transaction. Just add each product you want to your cart and then proceed to checkout, entering your information only once to complete your order. Save time (and money) on all your homeschool needs at the Co-op.

We hope this new feature will make your experience at the Co-op even more enjoyable. Check out the Co-op revamp today!
