Bookseller Advisory Group

AbeBooks is constantly striving to improve our web site and functionality for both booksellers and buyers. We value our booksellers' opinions very highly - your industry knowledge and immersion in the book world help us continue to make AbeBooks the best it can possibly be.

In the past have worked with a small “Advisory Group” of 6-8 booksellers who acted as consultants to our team as we build new products and initiatives. We now want to include more booksellers who fully represent the wide range of businesses using our marketplace. As an active member, you will be helping to shape the selling community and make important changes that will affect all sellers.

Who can join the Booksellers' Advisory Group?

All AbeBooks booksellers are welcome to join the Advisory Group. Just tell us a bit about yourself and your business when you sign up, so that we can better target specific groups with relevant and useful issues.

How will it work?

The group's purpose is to increase the flow of ideas and information between AbeBooks and its booksellers. The group will provide AbeBooks with feedback and advice, from a bookseller's perspective, on new initiatives and product enhancements that the company is proposing. AbeBooks will e-mail the group, or relevant portions of the group, telling you about the new initiative. It will normally include a survey, which will ask you specific questions. You will be asked complete and submit the survey, as well as any additional feedback you may have (via e-mail).

How much of a time commitment is required?

No commitment is set – participate when you can. However, we will unsubscribe those who do not participate at all in the course of a year, and we’ll reward our 100% participants!

What about confidentiality?

As a member of the Advisory Group, you must keep all information confidential.  You risk your status as an AbeBooks bookseller if you break your confidentiality agreement with us.

What if I decide I do not want to participate any longer?

You will easily and automatically be able to unsubscribe from the group via a link in all of your Advisory Group e-mails.
