Amazon Search for Loans and Price Importer

The Amazon Search Addon allows you to search Amazon automatically for loan requests using the LoanTitle. 

When you have selected a book, you can hit the Import Price button to import the price back into ILLiad.

Using this Addon

To use the Amazon Search Addon, click the Amazon Books tab on the Loan request form.

If Amazon has been set to search automatically for the LoanTitle, the form will open to a list of the search results from Amazon.

The LoanTitle searched here is The Alchemist.

Click on the item in Amazon you want to select to bring up that item page.

If this is the item you want to use, you can import the price to your Request form by clicking the Import Price button on the Amazon Books ribbon.

The Import Price button is greyed out until you are on the individual item form. It is enabled when you click to an item form so it can find the price of the selected item.

The Request form opens to the Details tab and the Amazon price is displayed in the Max Cost/Pieces field under Item Information.

If the search is not set to start automatically, you will see a blank page instead of a list of Amazon Search results.

Start the search by clicking the Search button on the Amazon Books ribbon.

Use the Back, Forward, Stop and Refresh buttons in the Amazon Books ribbon to move between pages, refresh pages and stop loading a page. 


Addon settings are configured in the Manage Addons form.
