This page controls which files are
created for export and then uploaded to selected selling venues.
There are basically two (2) sections:
ID's and Passwords
to Checked Venues
- There are four (4) columns:
- eMail - check this box if
you want the exported file for
this venue emailed to you; it is in tab-delimited format
and has the filename in this format:
- Venue name, followed
by the current day's date and time, followed by the file format
identifier of .txt (for example: ABE09192014110200.txt)
- Venue - this is the venue
name; currently there are 12 venues that support the FTP (file
transfer protocol) which is used to upload the file(s) to the
venues. Note that you do NOT have to upload using this app;
you can do it manually from each site's web page. Note:
Amazon is not listed here because it does NOT use User IDs or this
type of password.
- User ID - this is your id
for each of the venues; if you don't use a particular venue, don't
put anything in either the User ID textbox or the Password text
- Password - the password
for the particular venue associated with your User ID.
- At the bottom of that
section, there is a place for the email address that you want the
selected export files to be sent to. For example: if you
checked the Alibris box under eMail and also the box for Biblio, both
export files will be send via email to the address listed.
- There are 13 listed venues
next to checkboxes; just check the ones you want export files
created for (for the most part, each is unique to the particular
venue); once the export files are created, they are
automatically uploaded to those venues you have checked in this
section. If you don't check the venue, an export file will not
be created nor will one be uploaded to the venue.
- There are three (3) options
that control what is exported:
waiting to be uploaded - this, and the counter to the
right of it, is used to export and upload ONLY the books that have
been added or updated since
the last upload; this is to prevent multiple books being listed on
- this option will create an export file with every book in your
inventory so you can create a clean
list of books in the particular venue. Note that if you
select this option, ALL venues will be sent an export file marked
for purging of the existing inventory. If you only want this
to occur for one venue, export and upload to all of the other
venues, then do that "purge" venue separately.
upload connection - selecting this option will upload a
small (1 listing) to the venue to check the connection (typically
User ID and Password); if you have ANY problems with this, contact
us for help resolving this issue.
