Basil Bookstore Product Description
Everyone knows that you need books to sell in a bookstore. Adding these must be simple and efficient and Basil Bookstore makes this critical process just that. Scan the 13-digit EAN or ISBN and Basil Bookstore will automatically download the title, author, publisher, publish date and retail price for you. No CDs required.
Assign multiple conditions per ISBN at varying price points. Put the same ISBN in several sections of your store to reach the most customers with the same title.
Give buying clerks the right information to make critical inventory purchasing decisions. Basil Bookstore provides sales information for the title and author of the book being scanned to help determine how well the book will sell in the store. Basil Bookstore provides the current on hand quantity and the Amazon pricing information for the title including the lowest New, Used and Collector price, the quantity in each of these conditions, the sales rank and the average of the lowest 10 prices. Combined, this information helps the clerk make the correct, well informed inventory decision. Set rules as guidelines for your staff to help make the pricing of books more consistent.
Basil Bookstore allows for more than one store to be configured for each customer. Each store operates independently and has it's sections, users, sales and customers. Customers do have a default store, but can be accessed easily at other locations in the chain to take advantage of their in-store credit, frequent buyer or customer discounts. There is no synchronization of data, each stores operations can immediately be seen by every other store. If a store searches for a book and sees that it is available, that data can be trusted to be correct. Sales are also reflected immediately so a manager can view sales through out the day for each store by running a simple report.
Barcode every item, barcode some items, or barcode no items, and Basil Bookstore will work regardless of the choice. You can decide how your inventory is cataloged based on your stores situation and environment.
Basil Bookstore allows you to scan the UPC on your CD's, DVD's and video games that you take for trade. Define rules for how these items should be priced just as you would books brought in for trade. Post these items online to be sold on various markets including Amazon, Alibris and others.
