Creating your own Albury BookShelf couldn't be easier. Click Register, tell us about your books and then choose your own dedicated shop address. With control over currencies, shipping, rights and formats, the Albury BookShelf puts you in command.
Clicking New Book brings up a simple page where you can enter all the title information for each book. Bibliographic details can be added, along with language, printed formats, digital formats for eBooks, and territorial rights. This is also where you upload your cover images, and we even provide a 'Look Inside' feature for an enhanced customer browsing experience. The final stage is to choose your pricing and the currencies you want to sell in, all of which you have total control over.
You can edit your titles at any time through your personal admin portal, and switch their availability for purchase on or off at the click of a button. Your customers can even add star ratings and write reviews, all of which can be reviewed and moderated by you.
If you plan to have different types of books available, you can populate your own genre categories to help your customers find the books they are looking for, quickly and easily.
Once you've added a few titles, you can begin to see how simple, and yet powerful your store will be. Clicking on a title brings up a comprehensive overview and of course that all-important ‘buy’ button. The Albury BookShelf will instinctively choose the customer's native currency first, based on their location, but they can always choose another currency if they prefer.
The Albury BookShelf is not just a pretty interface. Your Albury BookShelf handles everything automatically, from communicating with printers, to payment modules, live accounting, royalty calculations, and it gives you the ability to track your customer's orders, right through to fulfillment.
