Does anyone know how to automate the process of pulling up book details (Image, author, title, format etc) with the ISBN for the product details?  Any leads would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi,

You can available apis for example this one => https://isbndb.com/apidocs/v2

There are more apis to get books details using ISBN.

Basically, you can have a custom app built for your shop, that app will have a process that will go through all your products with ISBN and get the information about the book using a third api.

PM me if you need help.

Thanks.

Hi @BetterBooks!

You can use Parabola to combine book details with ISBN's with the API that @Jayvin had recommended. Let me know if you need help getting started!

Have to say I loved the Sound of ISBNdb but never heard of API before. Do you know how this appears when you add a book. Do I just add the ISBN and it does a search for me just like Ebay does when we sell books or is it different?

 

I ask as I have shipment of 90,000 second hand books and was looking for easy way for me to upload each book without haven't to copy paste and type a lot of description and other details.

 

Do you know a programmer that can do the API from ISBNDB?

 

Sorry lots of questions I'm just can't find a simple way its explained.
