  • I can not open it in my Adobe Reader, and I had to install Digital Editions

      I have purchased a couple eBooks on this site. I have never been referred by anyone to this site. But this site always pop in first on Google search whenever I search for title of eBooks that I want to buy.

      I have experienced purchasing ebooks from a couple other sites, but BooksOnBoard is more visually appealing, book covers are nicely displayed on the website. One more thing, is that because they accept Paypal payments. I never would have been able to shop online if an online


      store won’t accept Paypal as payment processor because I am a non credit card holder.

      So I made my first purchase for less than $20, and I was given the download link, and I was prompted which format I’d like it downloaded. I chose PDF/Adobe but I knew too late that it’s Adobe Digital Editions. I can not open it in my Adobe Reader, and I had to install Digital Editions. Anyway, it’s free but it is a little hard to use.

      By this purchase BooksOnBoard also ...


      • give rewards points and I got over a couple dollars rewards for a purchase less than $20, which is awesome. I can use it to purchase another eBook. And I did, they had books on sale for a little over a dollar.

        But then again, it is available only on some formats. Until now I cannot open that book because that format will require you to sign up in their site for you to unlock; and part of getting the code is to give them your credit

        card number, which I don’t have.

        I have emailed the support, and they reset my registration but still they ask for credit card number, and was not able to resolve that particular matter.

        So this site, is a little tricky for some users. This is an honest site. But there are parts that it is hard to use. Like, they should have warned before payment that I needed a credit card number before I made the purchase and download, so that I could have decide whether to purchase it or not.
