Online shop integration. The online access for your customers

Expand your online services for your customers and increase the turnover of your bookshop. In addition to the VLB subscription, the VLB data can also be licensed for all common online shops. To make browsing and making a purchase decision easier, all available titles are provided with detailed additional information. In this way, your customers can access the whole variety of the German-language book market in the online shop of your bookshop as well and thus always have the biggest possible selection - and you receive plenty of additional orders.

With the VLB data, you receive all the complete bibliographical information on:

  • Books
  • E-books
  • Audio books
  • Calendars
  • Cards
  • DVDs, videos
  • Software
  • Non-book articles

as well as sales-promoting additional information, such as:

  • Cover
  • Contents lists
  • Blurbs
  • Audio samples
  • Information about the author
  • Availability information
  • Linking of series


Requirements

Use of the VLB data in your online shop requires that you conclude a contract for the use of the VLB data.

When concluding a contract, you indicate which provider you are using and you inform the latter about the conclusion of the contract. The data is then activated by the provider in question for your online shop.
