GrabIt! for BookTrakker - Basic Operating Information       Index  

 

Go to Index for access to each page corresponding to a tab along the bottom section in GrabIt!

 

GrabIt! is divided into three sections: 

  1. Top section: Input. ASIN/ISBN and Manual/Automatic Author/Title.

  2. Middle Section: Results. ASIN lookup, ASIN matching and Repricing.

  3. Bottom Section: Control and Setup.

 
 

Some Basic Definitions:  ASIN: ISBNís, ASINís & BASINís. 

ASIN: An ASIN (or ISBN for books) is a unique number used to identify each item in the Amazon.com store. ASINís are displayed on the product information page for each item. Stands for Amazon Standard Identification Number. 

BASIN: The ASIN used for pre-ISBN books. Begins with a B  

ASIN/ISBN: 0914104071

BASIN: B0008CBU9U

NOTE: Before getting started, fill in your Amazon email address on the Settings tab. Searching or matching will not work without your Amazon email address. 

Search, Amazon OLR and Reprice are operational tabs. BASIN is a mixture of operation and setup. Templates, Settings, BookTrakker, Formatting, Comments and Set Prices are setup tabs. Details is strictly for display of the List View field at the bottom of List View in BookTrakker, for BASIN matching only.
