ALREADY AN IBPA MEMBER? Great! Simply log into the "members only" area of the IBPA website to download a current copy of the IBPA Membership Benefits Handbook containing all the information you need to take advantage of each IBPA member benefit.


The IBPA member benefit

IBPA members receive access to NPD BookScan data across two tiers at deeply discounted rates. Each tier is limited to IBPA members within a specific revenue band.

In September 2018, NPD launched their new DecisionKey Dashboard. With DecisionKey, users can see metrics about the industries, categories, competitors, and brands that matter to their business in a graphical view that’s easier to consume and less data-intensive. Read more here.

Your IBPA member discount remains the lowest discount offered by NPD to any organization. Even with the price changes below, IBPA members receive >50% discount on both Tier One and Tier Two access.


May 4th, 2020 update on price increase referenced below: Given the current situation, NPD is postponing the rate increase that was planned for September 2020. They will continue at current rates from September 2020 through August 2021. NPD hopes this will give IBPA members some breathing room and more manageable costs in the short term as they navigate the COVID and post-COVID world.
