3. Individual conversion of your book data - Should you already have a customised inventory system such as MichaelCole, Booktrakker, Amazon, BookRouter - or use a program such as Excel, Access or Filemaker to list your books, we can create a conversion specifically for your data format. Simply send a copy of your first file together with a field description (1 = book ID, 2 = author, 3 = title, 4 = publisher etc.) to email@example.com - please remember to mention which software you use. We will check your data and get back to you if we have any questions. To see an example please click here.

If you do not yet have an inventory management system, you may wish to use the AbeBooks Inventory Template that we have already set up for you.
4. XML-Interface (API) - For those with a high volume of sales we also offer a special XML-interface (API) that allows direct communication with the AbeBooks Server. The system ensures seamless integration of your AbeBooks-Business into your own order and inventory management system. Please contact us directly for further information on this service.
