If you have any questions, contact us and our team will be happy to help. You can also find plenty of useful information on the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) pages for booksellers and vendors.
1. Fill out our Contact / Registration form. This form will take less than two minutes to complete and provides basic information about your store so that we can prepare the user agreement. Register here.
2. Return user agreement and vendor account numbers Upon receiving your contact form submission, Batch will draw up a user agreement and email it to you to fill out, e-sign, and return. You’ll also be asked for your publisher account numbers at this time.
3. Set Up Account and Confirm with the PublishersBatchOne After we've received your contract and vendor account numbers, you will be assigned a phase when your store will go live. Prior to going live, we will email you a link to BatchOne – the log-in portal where you will access your store's transactions – so you can create a secure user name and password. Additionally, some publishers require confirmation you want to use Batch and we will provide details on how to confirm.
4. Going Live The publishers will begin to transmit your invoices to Batch and at that point, it’s just a matter of learning how to use the platform and getting ready for your first payment.
Demos & Training Materials
Live Training – We recommend all new users have a live training session with Batch staff prior to getting started. Batch is not a difficult platform to use but we find a live training session helps users more easily acclimate to using Batch.
Batch Knowledge Center – Batch has user guides, documentation, and videos available on a wide variety of Batch subject matters. Follow this link to visit the Batch Knowledge Base.
