Set Up Your Store for Bookfest Sales

At Bookfest, attendees will be able to select their favorite independent bookstore. This selection not only co-brands their personal Connect tool they'll use throughout the conference, but it also allows them to purchase titles they love directly from the store. You can benefit from these sales but you have to opt-in! This only takes a few minutes and is free. 



Log into your Edelweiss Account and access Bookfest Connect by clicking the orange tab on the right of your screen:


Click the Setup icon at the top. Your store should be selected by default under "Select Retailer," but adjust as needed. 


Next, you'll add your online store's cart URL. 


If you use IndieCommerce (or Indie Lite), select IndieCommerce from the dropdown list, enter your store’s web address, and hit the Save icon:



For ChrisLands, just do the same thing! We'll take care of the rest.


For other eCommerce systems, select Other. For more detailed information, click the "?" icon.


BookManager: Enter your store’s URL, and users will be able to construct their list of books on your site and then add them to their cart to check out. (For example:{isbns}&qs_file=&q=h.tviewer&using_sb=status&qsb=keyword) If you are not set up for online ordering directly from your store, you can enter your affiliate URL. The formatting here should be:{isbn}

You can find your affiliate ID on your Bookshop page’s Affiliate Dashboard.

So, for example, this store’s URL is:

Others: Enter your URL structure. Attendees that click a title in Connect will be taken to the title on your store’s site. Unfortunately, they won’t be able to add their entire tote bag to your cart all at once, but they can add books title by title.


Finally, just upload your store's logo. This will co-brand the attendee's experience when they pick you as their favorite retailer. 


If you have any questions, just email us at 


Attendees will then see your logo here:
