A WebStore gives you the opportunity to have a powerful presence on the Internet for your customers. Your entire active book inventory from your BookManager Software is automatically uploaded to the site everyday. Consumers can search our huge TitleLink search engine containing over 6 million titles to see what you have in stock, on order, or can obtain. They then have the option of holding, reserving or ordering books from you. The customer can choose to either pick up their order in-store, or have it shipped to them. All payments are done using your existing in-store methods (i.e. no payment taken via your site). If they choose to have an order shipped, you can discuss the form of payment with the customer such as charging them on account or by credit card.

Each WebStore is unique and will show your customers information specific to your store. You have the ability to add a logo or banner at the top of the page, write a site blurb, add news/events, choose your own colours, featured lists, and upload pictures to the homepage. Over time we will be expanding these features to include the ideas and suggestions by the bookstores. Check back often as changes to the WebStore are happening all the time.
If you require design assistance (banner/logo design, HTML coding, etc.) please contact our in-house graphic designer Carley. Prices range depending on the amount of time it takes to complete each design and the amount of work needed.
