Batch launches payment app for booksellers

The Booksellers Association's online payment system, Batch, is launching a brand new app for bookshops.

The Batch app will allow booksellers to find invoices, check goods in, and authorise payment. The app allows users to search invoices by scanning an ISBN or entering a delivery note number, order reference or invoice number, while also being able to check-in books as they unpack them and upload details straight to their Batch payments account.

Batch m.d. Fraser Tanner said: "Batch is always looking to make the business of book selling simpler and more efficient and we hope that the free app will grow into an indispensable tool for the trade."

The app will officially launch in May and will be available free to booksellers on the Apple App Store or from Google Play for Android users.
