You don’t have to be large to participate: Nielsen BookNet allows you to compete on the same level as your competitors regardless of your size. Our unique service allows you to receive orders and trade electronically with most major chains and wholesalers and the service allows you to send order acknowledgements, delivery notes, invoices and credit notes.

By joining a Nielsen Book Commerce service, at any level, you will enable booksellers to order from you electronically, receive status up-dates, order acknowledgements etc; allowing them to provide greater levels of service to their customers.

The level of sophistication and integration into your back-office systems is dependent on your business needs. We work closely with the major publisher system suppliers and can help you move your business forward using Nielsen BookNet EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) and other software applications.
