All about your bookstore on AbeBooks
Your bookstore information is a window into your shop. Preparing the following information before submitting your Bookseller application will ensure you are ready to provide buyers with complete and accurate information as soon as possible after your account is activated.
Your Books - Here, There and Everywhere!
Enter your book listings into your selected inventory management system. We recommend HomeBase, AbeBooks’ free inventory management software. HomeBase has been designed to work with AbeBooks but can be used with other online marketplaces as well. Download AbeBooks HomeBase.
If using a spreadsheet or other software, please confirm that your listing format complies with AbeBooks data requirements.
If you prefer to enter your listings directly online, through your AbeBooks bookseller account, you will need to register first and begin listing your books after your account has been activated. Note that monthly subscription fees apply immediately upon activation, even if you have zero books online to start.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
