viaLibri-Enabled Bookseller Websites

In addition to providing the world’s most comprehensive online search engine for old, rare and out-of-print books, we also provide websites that let booksellers connect directly to the more than 25,000 individual bibliophiles from around the globe who search for books on viaLibri every month. Our websites are built on a WordPress platform that provides elegant design features, a simple but powerful content management system, and an unmatched collection of special features and utilities available as plugins from the large community of independent WordPress developers.

Items listed for sale on a vialibri-enabled website also become searchable on viaLibri, where the ‘Buy From’ links are marked as ‘Direct From Seller’ and take the customer directly to an item page on bookseller’s website. (ILAB affiliated booksellers can also have their books searched on multiple ILAB sites). A shopping cart can be provided if needed and credit card sales will be enabled without requiring a costly merchant account or payment gateway. (Ready soon).

    • “Direct From Seller” links from viaLibri to your website.
    • Libribot wants matching on all your books when they are added to your site.
