What's New at the Scribblemonger Book Exchange

November 1, 2010 - Improvements have been made to the Booksellers page.  Booksellers can now searched for based on name (first letter of store name or string contained within name) or country.  Thanks to Palm Tree Books and Chris Hartmann, Bookseller for recommending this addition be done.

May 5, 2010 - Alibris Tab Delimited files are now supported as one of the inventory upload formats.  Thanks to Books N Bears Media Sales for providing the information.

April 15, 2010 - Booksellers can now enter 'Terms of Sale' text which will be displayed on each listing for sale.  A link to the page for this feature is available on the 'my account' page.  Things like return policy, sales tax requirements, and non-standard shipping charges can be indicated here.  Thanks to Andrew Langer, Bookseller for the suggestion.

April 13, 2010 - First Edition and Signed indicators are now provided on the search results page.  Thanks to 4Shadows Books for the suggestion.

March 23, 2010 - 'Order Pulling', a feature where Scribblemonger places order information in your ftp account for inventory management packages to read, is now supported.  The Art of Books and FillZ currently have the ability to pull orders.  You must configure your account at Scribblemonger to write out orders (see the inventory help page).

March 22, 2010 - FillZ added to the list of supported inventory management packages.  Scribblemonger is configured as a Custom Marketplace.

March 20, 2010 - Scribblemonger has been added to the list of sites supported by Prager, Software.  See the inventory help page for details on configuring Prager to work with us.

March 19, 2010 - When purchasing an item, buyers are now required to enter a shipping address during checkout.  This information is then conveyed to the seller in the purchase notification.  Previously, the address was only provided by PayPal, or the seller needed to collect this information if selling directly.

March 17, 2010 - eBook support is provided.  For uploaded books, entering 'eBook' or 'digital' in the binding field (case insensitive) will flag a listing as an eBook.  These items can be specifically searched for.

March 10, 2010 - Booksellers, you can now put your account on holiday.  Select the type of vacation/holiday setting you prefer, enter a return date, and we'll do the rest.  There are two different vacations settings to choose from: 1) Your inventory is set to inactive, is not viewable, and may not be purchased or 2) Your inventory is viewable, and may still be purchased (or requested to be purchased).  The buyer is notified (in the cart) that the item(s) will not ship until the date you have specified as your return date.  They can choose to wait, or grab that long sought for item right then.

This setting is configured on your 'my account' page.  Your listings are returned to active on the date you specify; or you can manually return them to active at an earlier date.  You can also change the return date at any time while you are gone.

February 24, 2010 - New search options: Search for listings with images and Search by media type (Books, Movies, Music, or all types).

February 23, 2010 - Art of Book Tab-Delimited format support added.  Inventory help updated to include configuring uploads from Art of Book as a Custom Venue.

February 9, 2010 - Currency conversion is now supported.  Prices can be displayed in either AUD, CAD, EUR, GBP, NZD, or USD.  Members can select their preferred display setting on the 'my account' page, and prices will be shown in that currency when signed in.

February 4, 2010 - You can now add a picture to your About Me page.  Post a picture of yourself,  your bookstore, your book collection,  the coast of the Bristol Channel...  or even your cat.   But please post something.   We'd like to get to know each other better.

February 3, 2010 - Inventory upload from World Book Market - Book Base is now supported.  The upload can be accomplished through the WBM-BB software, or the inventory file can be directly uploaded using the upload feature on your 'my account' page.

February 3, 2010 - Uploading of image files is now supported.  The upload can be accomplished using ftp or the Scribblemonger uploader available on the 'my account' page.  Individual files can be sent (.jpg, .gif, and .bmp), or the image files can be zipped up and uploaded as a .zip file.  BookTrakker also supports uploading of image files.

January 29, 2010 - The Scribblemonger Forums have been launched.  You can create a nickname for yourself for use in the forums; this setting is available on your account page.  The nickname defaults to your username.

January 27, 2010 - Support added for uploads of tilde (~) delimited files from Booklist inventory management software.  Later versions of Booklist also export to UIEE; when exporting that way use the UIEE upload format setting.

January 26, 2010 - Currency conversion added.  You can now specify the currency that your inventory is uploaded in.  We will adjust the listed prices to display in US$ based on your currency selection.

January 26, 2010 - Price Reduction feature: Booksellers can specify a percent reduction in listed prices.  This provides a way to share the reduced expenses at the Scribblemonger Book Exchange with buyers.  With large inventories, it is difficult to change prices for one site as opposed to others.  This feature allows the normal prices to be uploaded (entered) and an adjustment is made by us.

January 24, 2010 - Added support for a Scribblemonger preferred tab-delimited inventory upload format.  Put your whatever-delimited data into our tab delimited format and upload.  No need to contact us to support your format.  The Scribblemonger file format is one of several supported, and appears in the list within the Bookseller Inventory Management section on the 'my account' page.

January 23, 2010 - Changed the random display of books to be a random display of books from a randomly selected Bookseller.  Bookseller name is displayed, along with a link to their About page.  Booksellers with 50 or more books listed are included in the random drawing.
