We want to make managing your inventory on BIBLIO as easy as pie. So, let's dive in and break it down for you.


Uploading Your Inventory


Most inventory management software out there lets you create or export inventory data files that you can upload to BIBLIO. The good news is, BIBLIO plays nice with many popular inventory programs like HomeBase and Excel. If you're unsure about how to use your software to update your BIBLIO listings, don't sweat it. Just shoot us an email at bookseller-support@biblio.com. Tell us which program you're using, and we'll do our best to give you all the info and instructions you need.



A Few Tips for Smooth Sailing


Now, here are some important things to remember when uploading your listings:


If you use a status and/or quantity field in your uploads, keep in mind that any listing uploaded with a status field indicating an item is unavailable or a quantity of zero will remove that listing from your active records. Also, uploading a listing with a price of zero will remove it from your active inventory.

Deleting Listings


Sometimes, you might want to delete several listings at once. No problem! Here's how:


1. Bulk Deletes


Log in to your bookseller menu and click on the Inventory tab at the top of the page.

Select Bulk deletes from the drop-down menu.

Enter the inventory numbers of the items you want to delete, separated by spaces, commas, or line breaks, and then hit Review.

You'll get a chance to double-check your deletes before they're finalized. Just make sure to include any leading zeros if needed (e.g., 003489).

2. One at a Time


If you prefer a more personal touch, you can always remove individual listings from your BIBLIO inventory one by one. You can also make updates or corrections to individual listings. We've got plenty of options for searching your inventory, adding, updating, or removing listings. Check out our FAQ for managing your listings manually, and you'll find some handy tips.


Keep Your Database Updated


Tip: If you manage your own database for listings and also make manual changes on BIBLIO, make sure to update your database as well when you make those manual changes. If we receive an upload with different data for a listing you've manually added, removed, or edited, the data from your upload will take precedence.
