- Biblio.com Announcement
I am pleased to announce the launch of biblio.com, a new database for used, rare, and out-of-print books, dedicated to serving independent booksellers and bookbuyers.
Currently, we are offering a free 3 month trial period for booksellers who would like to participate. There is no setup fee, and no obligation, and after the three months are over, we offer an outstanding guarantee for our members: monthly fees are based on the number of books listed with us, or 15% of monthly sales through us — whichever is less. For information on our services, fees, guarantee, or to sign up, please visithttp://www.biblio.com/listing_info.php.
In addition, I am further pleased to announce that we have recently purchased Bookopoly, a well-established source for buying and selling books. We are very excited at this opportunity, and are working to improve Bookopoly’s services, as well as looking for ways in which we can integrate some of the functionalities and features of biblio.com.
I very much look forward to continuing to serve the online community of bookselling through our new ventures, and welcome the opportunity to answer any questions.
