ABE Basics

ABE's AoB Venue Settings is much more simple than some of the Venue's requirements.  ABE's Venue Settings requires your ABE Userid (which is different than the sign-in for your seller account) and an API Key.

How to locate your ABE Userid:

  • Login to your ABE Seller Account
  • Click on the ‘Account Details’ link
  • Then the ‘Marketplace Profile’ link
  • The information you need is displayed in the User ID field.

To generate the API Key:

  • Login to your ABE Seller Account
  • Locate the “My API Key” link located within your AbeBooks Member Menu. 
  • Generate the API Key and use it in place of your Password for ABE in the AoB Venue Settings.

Please make sure that if you copy/paste your API Key into the AoB Venue Settings there are no blank extra spaces before or after what you're entering.  A blank space will be read as a character space and can make your login attempt invalid.  

If for any reason your API Key is or becomes invalid please repeat the process of generating a new key from the ABE website.
