Blog Post created by gennyr Employee on May 25, 2017



AbeBooks sent the following message to merchants this week. In addition to changing your password on AbeBooks, please go to My Account and click on the My API Key. Then click Regenerate API Key. You must enter that key code in the AbeBooks Password field in Monsoon.

Dear Seller,

In order to maintain your AbeBooks account security, we now require that you have different passwords for your AbeBooks account and for any third-party inventory management software you use, or have used in the past, to access AbeBooks.

Please update your AbeBooks password by June 30, 2017.

To make the update, sign into your AbeBooks account, click on ‘My Password’ and follow the instructions. Select a password that you are not using on any other sites.

Please contact our Customer Support team if you have questions about this request.
