Monsoon Commerce Solutions (MCS), a provider of online marketplace-based solutions for sellers and retailers, and the American Booksellers Association have announced a strategic partnership that will provide booksellers with increased opportunities to grow their online sales.

ABA members can now sign up for MCS’ online selling software solutions, such as Monsoon Seller Edge and Seller Pro, at a reduced fee and use these services to expose their inventory to millions of book buyers via more than a dozen online marketplaces supported by MCS, including Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, eBay, and more. Members will have the choice of listing their inventory in as many of these partner retail websites as they wish using MCS’ desktop or hosted software.

“This partnership highlights the MCS commitment to providing the best online solutions available to the market, whether a store is small, large, or somewhere in between,” said Brian Elliott, CEO of Monsoon Commerce Solutions. “Over 100 ABA members already use one or more of our services, and we’re excited to help even more ABA members grow their sales.”

“We’re delighted to partner with Monsoon Commerce Solutions to help our members distribute their used inventory to a variety of key online markets,” said ABA COO Len Vlahos. “MCS offers a powerful suite of tools to help indie booksellers maximize sales and profits in this space.”
