  • This feature allows the store to create online coupons that can be used for all products on the website, excluding eBooks and Audio Books. Coupons also come with optional restrictions the store can use to offer specific discounts on individual titles or within specific date ranges.

Not For Sale

  • When a book is available on the website from Ingram, but the store chooses not to sell that title for any reason, this feature can help! Allows Store Admins to upload a list of ISBNs that are not available for sale on the site, which will make those titles unavailabe for purchase on the website.

Store Preferences

  • By customizing your Store Preferences, you have the option not to sell books marked as Special Order (books not on-hand at Ingram), Short Discount, or NET discount. With fine tuned store preferences it will make it easy for your store to manage online orders.


Checkout and Order Processing

This will allow you to import addresses for orders into your shipping software where you can then create shipping labels in bulk.
