You need a website optimized for online bookings to start renting books or managing a library online: Rental software like Rentle makes this easy for you.


First, add the books as products into your online library into Rentle and determine the quantities in Rentle's inventory management system.

How does renting books or managing a library online work?

Essentially, books rental companies and online libraries loan books online to their customers for different durations.

Every company has its own book loaning process, pricing model, and way to make the service available to the customers. Additional services have a significant impact on how the operation shapes out. Rentle supports all the most common requirements of the books rental and library industry.

How do I start a book rental business or an online library?

Starting a book rental business or a library requires a lot of planning, preparation, and setting up processes.

First, you need to make a business plan. Your business plan includes a description of your business, market and competitor analysis, financial plan, and marketing plan. It is also essential to consider how you will organize your rental operations, such as customer management, order processing, inventory tracking, and equipment maintenance.

Is a book rental business or a library profitable?

Generally, book rentals and libraries can be very profitable and enjoy high profit margins. Still, just like with any company, profitability comes down to your business's income and expenditure structure. Incomes are primarily determined by whether there is a demand for book rental services or libraries in your area. Equipment, business space, insurance, and staff salaries are typically the most significant expenses.

Do I need a book rental or library software?

It is strongly recommended that you start using cloud-based book rental or library software from the early days of your business. Rental management software, such as Rentle, allows you to manage inventory, process orders, and run your library in one system instead of spreading all the information across several apps and spreadsheets. This gives you a better overview of your business and complete control of the rental operation.
