The Pivot Interactives store is the quickest and easiest method for purchasing a subscription to Pivot Interactives. However, you may still purchase one from the Vernier store. Purchases from the Pivot Interactives store are fulfilled instantly while purchases from the Vernier store take 1-2 business days to process. Purchases from Vernier also operate differently than purchases from the Pivot Interactives store.

Purchasing and activating seats

Once your order is processed in 1-2 business days, you'll receive an activation code that you use to activate seats into your account. You can also activate your seats from the Pivot Interactives website:

  1. Log into Pivot Interactives

  2. Click Account, then Purchases

  3. Click Activate.

  4. Enter in the number of seats you wish to activate.

Unactivated seats never expire. Activated seats expire in 365 days for high schools and 1 term for colleges. At least 10 seats must be activated for an account to be active

Should you activate seats by mistake, contact us immediately by using the chat bubble in the bottom-right of your screen and let us know.

Should you need to distribute your seats to another instructor:

  1. Log into Pivot Interactives

  2. Click Account, then Purchases.

  3. Click Distribute next to the purchase you wish to distribute seats from.

  4. Enter the email address for the instructor you wish to distribute seats to. They will then receive and automated email with further instructions.

Student-paid access to Pivot Interactives

To have students pay for their access to Pivot Interactives, simply create a student-pay class. There are two ways for students to pay for access:

  • Input credit card information upon enrolling in your class.

  • Purchase a code from your institution's bookstore and input that code instead of a credit card.

Purchasing a License

A minimum purchase of 250 seats is required to purchase a License from Vernier. With a License:

  • All seats on a License are active once the order is processed in 1-2 business days.

  • Seats do not need to be activated or distributed. Simply add instructors to the License.

  • Any number of instructors may be added to the License.

  • The number of enrolled students for all instructors on the License must be less than or equal to the seats purchased.

  • All seats expire at the end of the subscription period.

  • Whether they were ever "used" or not, seats do not roll over once the License expires.
