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.
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.
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.
Hi Jayvin - I'm interested in pursuing this option of connecting an ISBN database to Shopify to pull all book details upon scanning in inventory. Could we discuss further offline?
Thanks - Erik
Can you get in touch with me as well? I’ve had a brick and mortar bookstore for 15 years and sell online but am looking to now use Shopify. Thanks
@Jayvin It would be good to discuss potential solutions and if you already have a working API for ISBN data into Shopify, when would be good to connect?
We're releasing a Shopify app “ISBN to Book Product” that allows booksellers to create book products just from ISBNs. Here is the link to the demo: https://youtu.be/1uR80RnViiM. If you're interested in our app, write me an email: email@example.com
Thank you, Cristina.
I've been following this discussion. Is there any further news on development and release date? We are very interested!
Hi @abookbundle !
Thank you for your message.
Our app has been approved by Shopify and we are finalizing some details this week. The app will be available next week - I'll leave a link in this discussion.
In addition to bulk, we also have a book barcode scanner option. Please have a look at the demo: https://youtube.com/shorts/jNOAbXzV40s
Hi Christina !
Any way to incorporate your app with an "Author Series" dropdown menu in Shopify? Etsy has great dropdown menu variations. Your next project?
Looking forward to your app “ISBN to Book Product”
Thank your for your reply.
Can you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss this further.
I am happy to announce that our application 'ISBNExpress: Book Importer' is available on Shopify App store: https://apps.shopify.com/isbn-express-book-importer
With just the ISBN, our app automatically imports all the book information you need as a bookseller. Create products with the book's title, description, cover image, author, pages, binding, publication date, dimensions, weight, and language. You can import up to 20 books at once.
By installing our application, you will be able to create 50 book products for free. Then using one-time payment you can buy packages of books (no monthly subscription or long term commitment).
We would love to hear your experiences and suggestions at email@example.com.
