Upload your in-store book inventory to the following online markets:
Choose how much inventory you want to post online and at what price. Create a market SKU when you are adding items to inventory, if the online price is attractive. If a book comes through your door selling for $100, you can create the market SKU immediately and make it available for uploading to the various markets. Basil allows for a different price on each market and the online price can be different than your in-store price. Basil checks your entire inventory daily to compare your store price to the online price and will show you the list of books that are paying more online. Uploading winning sellers is a great way to launch your venture into online sales.
Basil automatically uploads your inventory every 15 minutes throughout the day. Additions or sales are automatically uploaded and synchronized with the markets. This ensures that in-store sales are reflected quickly on each market, which reduces the number of refunds. Basil can upload inventory directly to Amazon, Abe, Alibris, Biblio, and Chrislands. If you are looking for your own e-commerce site, we suggest using the Chrislands.com service. It is inexpensive and very stable.
Basil automatically downloads orders from online markets to make shipment processing more efficient. We currently support Amazon, Abe, Alibris, Biblio, Chrislands, and Barnes & Noble. Create pick lists, packing slips, and postage for the orders downloaded. Basil integrates with Dazzle, Intelligent Business Shipping (IBS) and Best Manifesting to support the printing of postage and shipping the product. Basil also makes it easy to cancel online orders. There is no need to check each market, just take a look at the automated orders screen and you'll know what you need to ship.
Create Market Orders
Create market orders for items sold online to keep your in-store inventory in sync with the online listings. All items sold throughout the day are automatically removed from the appropriate markets to reduce refunds and out-of-stock orders. Get the best of both worlds, sell online and in the store without the worry of poor ratings and missed sales.
