Frequently Asked Questions - eBooks / Audio
How does the purchasing process of electronic titles work?
Just like paper. The only difference is that at this time it is not possible to buy a book and an ebook at the same time. Unlike a standard purchase, e-books can only be paid for with a credit card.
What happens when I buy an ebook or an audiobook?
After paying by card, we will send a request to the licensee's database and he will immediately generate a link where you can download the title. We will send this link to your email address shortly.
In what format can I buy an e-book?
We offer titles in the two most common formats, ePub and PDF. Some titles are available in both of these formats and it is up to you which one you choose.
In what format can I buy audiobooks?
We offer audiobooks and audio files in the most widespread mp3 format. You can download these files directly to your device from the URL you receive via email. In most cases, you must first decompress (unzip) the purchased files. You can then play them in any application (for example Windows Media Player, iTunes, VLC, Winamp).

I bought the wrong ebook. I want to make a complaint about the purchased ebook.
The purchase of electronic and audio books is not subject to the right of complaint, all sales are final. Once the purchase is made, the transaction can no longer be withdrawn. We would like to accommodate you in such situations, but also as a distributor at the time of your purchase, the licensee will issue an invoice, which we must pay unconditionally. Therefore, we ask you to be extra careful when making a purchase, and unfortunately later complaints cannot be taken into account.
How long will the purchased link be active? How many times can I download an ebook?
The link (URL address) expires in 2 cases - the ebook was downloaded 3x - 6x (depending on the specific title and publisher), or automatically 24 months after the purchase.
What happens when the link expires and I accidentally lose all my data?
Ebooks, like all other original digital data or software, are the responsibility of each of us. We therefore recommend that you make a regular backup of your data.
