We encourage you to let publishers know that you are a member of the ABA, to make it easier for publishers to approve your requests.
Booksellers who are members of the American Booksellers Association can add their ABA numbers to their NetGalley profile. When you request titles in NetGalley, publishers will see an ABA logo next to your name, allowing them to easily identify you as a confirmed ABA member. Booksellers who enter their ABA numbers are generally approved more quickly and often. Read more about this and other partnerships.
To add your ABA number, sign into your NetGalley account, and go to your Profile by clicking on your name at the top of the screen.
Navigate to the Basic Information tab, and click "EDIT" to enter your ABA store number, then click "SAVE."
Your number will then be validated by our system and you should see the ABA logo in your account (and publishers will also start seeing this logo when you request their titles).
*You will be able to enter your ABA number in the Profile section as long as your member type is “Bookseller.” The number must be valid in order to be saved. Tip: encourage your staff to add the store ABA number to their NetGalley accounts as well!
Are you also a member of the Association for Christian Retail (CBA)? You can add your CBA member number as well - click here for more information.
