Buying direct: FAQ

What platforms does this work on?

Books you buy direct from this website can be read on:

  • Kindles
  • iPads and iPhones
  • Android and Windows phones
  • Apples and PCs
  • Nooks
  • Kobos
  • Other tablets and readers

There are some older devices you’ll need to download Firefox or Chrome on so you can read the book.

How does buying direct work?

You choose the book(s) you want, pay for them via the shopping cart, and then the files are delivered to you via email.

How do I pay?

We’re using the PayHip platform to host the shop. At the moment, you can pay via Paypal, or your credit or debit card. Paying via card is also via Paypal, but you don’t have to sign up to Paypal to pay. Other payment options will be added as we go, and we’ll let you know about that.

What happens when I’ve bought a book?

Once you’ve bought your book, you’ll get an email from BookFunnel. That’s the service we use to deliver the files to you. It will include your book files plus links to help you add the book files to the reader or app of your choice. Look for an email from after purchase. It’s worth checking your spam/junk folder if you don’t receive the email, or your promotions folder if you use Gmail.

BookFunnel even has a free app to store and read your book files on iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire devices. Learn more about the app here.

What do I do if I have problems with the download?

If you run into any problems, BookFunnel are there to help. Just get in touch with them and they’ll help you get your file.
