To search for books from an individual
bookseller, you can (1) click
(a link is available on every page) and click on
their store name, or (2) enter either their
scribblemonger.com username or bookstore name in
the advanced search
page. Since all booksellers offer reduced
shipping charges for multiple items, you can
save money by finding additional books from a
bookseller you're already purchasing from.
To learn more about a listed item, click the
Contact Seller link in an item’s Seller
Information box (available on the listing page
for every item).
You must be registered and
logged in to buy books. Once you log in, every
listing at the Scribblemonger Book Exchange has
an Add to Cart button. To purchase a book, add
it to your cart by clicking that button.
Books in the
cart are grouped by
bookseller. Since the Scribblemonger Book
Exchange does not process payments, you deal
directly with each bookseller to make purchases.
All grouped purchases have a 'Send Request to
Seller' button. Clicking this button lets the
bookseller know which items you want as well as
what delivery option you have selected.
The bookseller will send you the total cost and
ask for your shipping information. You'll
need to checkout separately for each bookseller.
Many booksellers also
support immediate payment by PayPal. In those
cases, you'll see a 'Pay Now with PayPal' button
— clicking it takes you to PayPal where you can
complete the transaction.
There are two ways to list
books for sale at the Scribblemonger Book
Exchange: one at a time or in batches.
To add listings one at a time, click on the
Sell a Book link
available at the top of every page. (You must be
registered and logged in to be able to list
books.) On the listing page, enter all required
fields (required fields are marked
in red) and as many
optional fields as you can; you have a better
chance of showing up in a search if you include
more information. Click Submit at the bottom of
the page, and your book is available for sale!

To list books in batches, including your entire
inventory, you must be registered as a Premium
Bookseller. Some inventory software, such as
BookTrakker, lets you upload directly to the
Scribblemonger Book Exchange. For other
software, choose from the Bookseller Inventory
Upload section on your Scribblemonger
page. Inventory upload help is available
As soon as your books are listed, people will be
able to view and buy them immediately. Buyers
complete purchases by sending a request to you,
the bookseller, from their carts. You can then
contact the buyer with total price due and
collect their shipping information. Or, if you
provide for it, buyers can checkout through PayPal immediately. (Click here for more
information on immediate payment with PayPal.)
Either way, you are notified of the purchase and
should contact the buyer with an order
