When you consign your books with SUBtitles, you have the choice to be paid by either by Interac e-Transfer or cheque. Details on each payment type are listed below.

Payment by Interac e-Transfer

If an item is sold, the consignor will receive an email (sent to the email address on file with SUBtitles) containing information on how to claim the e-Transfer.

Please ensure that you are checking your email account regularly, as e-Transfers are only valid for 30 days, at which point they expire and become the property of the University of Alberta Students' Union.

For more information on how e-Transfers work, please visit the Interac e-Transfer website. Please ensure you are eligible to receive an e-Transfer (i.e. you have an account with a Canadian bank with accepts e-Transfers) or otherwise request that you receive payment by cheque.

Payment by Cheque

If an item is sold, a consignment cheque is produced and made available on or after the next scheduled payment date. All cheques are distributed at SUBtitles.

Cheques are held for pick-up for 6-months from the payment date, at which point they become stale-dated and the property of the University of Alberta Students' Union. It is the responsibility of the consignor to check with SUBtitles periodically.

You can alternatively sign up to have your cheques mailed to you for a small service charge.

Did you consign books prior to September 2017?

Any books consigned prior to September 2017 are not displayed on the SUBtitles self-service management website. Please email for information about the status of your consignments prior to this date.

For items consigned prior to September 2017, the following policies apply:

  • SUBtitles retains a 15% commission for all items sold.
  • The consigned price of an item may not be changed at any time while on consignment.
  • SUBtitles reserves the right to return to the consignor any text that is replaced by a newer edition.
  • Any items not sold after one year of the initial date of consignment will be considered expired.
  • Consignors will have an additional two months from the expiry date to pick up their unsold items. Any items remaining will become the property of the University of Alberta Students' Union.
