Greetings! I am considering purchasing an already up-end-running used bookshop. The previous owners have done a nice job, but one thing they haven't done at all is listing inventory online with Abe, Alibris or anyone else. So I figure that one of my first tasks would be getting some books online pronto. I'd love some tips about what the best software might be for this. Doing some beginning explorations on ABE, I came upon their description of FillZ. Can anyone give a thumbs up or down to this application, or let me know of any better system?

As mentioned, the purchase of this store is still in the "maybe" stage. But if I pull the trigger, I'm going to have to get up and running with such things quickly.

Thanks for any help!

I do a lot of internet data-entry for a bookstore. We use Abebooks Homebase for our inventory, and upload through Bookrouter.com. Homebase is pretty user-friendly; I'm not computer savvy at all, and I've been using it for 6 months with very few issues. The only problem I know we've encountered comes with uploading listings to Amazon: homebase allows you to list books as leather, 1/4 leather, or whatever your heart desires, and Amazon rejects listings that aren't paperback or hardback. Not a big issue. So, Homebase has my vote.

Hope that helps.
