Google Preview is BACK!

Some of you might remember that a few months ago we did some clean up and updating to our eStore.  This unfortunately revealed more ‘dust bunnies” than we realized were there.

Recently we discovered that our Google Preview option, which several of our publishers have made available for their products were not working.  So our staff diligently worked this past week to bring those back.  I am excited to share that this feature is back and ready for you!

All you need to do is locate the product you that you believe will meet your needs. Click on the title or cover image to go directly to the product page.

If the publisher has provided this service, you will find a button just below the cover image on the left side of the page.

Click on the button you find there and a secondary window will pop up. (see below)

We would like nothing better to have every product within our store have this valuable feature, as we know you will find it very valuable!
