If you don't use HomeBase or our online system, don't worry – we haven't forgotten about you! We'll be making all of the same features that will be available in HomeBase 3.0 and the new online system available to you, too.

For now, you don't have to worry about making any changes. We'll be providing all booksellers with custom conversions with more information later this summer so we can set up your account to take advantage of the Abebooks Browse Categories and the search refinements.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a custom conversion? Am I using one?

A: A custom conversion refers to the settings on your account if you upload us files using any inventory management system other than HomeBase or our online listings manager. A custom conversion can be anything from a program like Booktrakker or Bookhound to an Excel spreadsheet that you save in tab-delimited format.

Q: I have a custom conversion. Will I be able to take advantage of the search refinements and new browse categories?

A: Yes. We will be providing the list of categories to you so that you can apply them to your listings. You can also use the online listings manager to assign your listings to categories.

We will be providing you with tools for using the search refinements as well. We'll have more information for you closer to the full release of HomeBase 3.0 in the fall.
