Will you accept the database I use?

All the booksellers who have joined us so far use a variety of databases. We will contact you to arrange for an initial upload where we will make sure your information is displayed correctly. If you currently upload to a website to sell books, you will be able to upload to ours.


How quickly will my database changes be reflected on the website?

Changes to your listings will be reflected on the website within 12-24 hours. We are also currently trialling live changes to the site to improve the customer and bookseller experience.

 

Can we set our own postage rates?

You can adjust your postage rates as you see fit on your own postage matrix. This will also include an option for Free Postage. Our advanced ordering system will also allow you to request extra postage from customers for larger items. 

 

Do we sell our books under our name or yours?

We think it is important for booksellers to retain their identity. It is your store and your books. You sell under your own name on our website.

 

Does your website support book images and what is the size limit?

Yes - please send your images. Images are vitally important to selling books and this is an important part of the new BookFound.com. We will work with you to make sure your images are in the correct format and size.


I have joined BookFound - why are my listings are not appearing on the website?

It can take up to 24 hours for your listings to appear on the website. Once your application to be a bookseller with BookFound has been approved and we have received your inventory we will upload it as quickly as possible.


Will BookFound be adding a margin to my book prices?

Bookselling is a competitive business. BookFound may add a margin to your book prices. If this applies, you still only pay the commission on your uploaded (the cheaper) price.

To avoid any margins being added to your books, you can enquire about paying our monthly listing fees. Please contact us if you are interested in these.
