The ebook purchase process for Amazon’s Direct Publishing Service is pretty simple.
Simply go to the Amazon Store, search for the title you’d like to buy and you’ll be able to click on the “Buy Now” button and be taken to a page with the ebook.
Once the title has been purchased, the next step is to download the ebook, then you can then start reading it online.
Amazon says that the Direct Publishing app is free for new users, but that if you already have an Amazon account you’ll have to pay for a $9.99 monthly subscription to the service.
Once you’ve paid for that subscription, you can now read and download the title online.
Once you’ve bought an ebook, Amazon says you can download it directly from the Amazon store.
There are no additional fees to be charged to download your ebook.
As with other book sellers, you’ll need to be signed in to the Direct publishing account to access this feature.
Once an ebook is downloaded and installed, you’re ready to start reading the book.
You can also choose to download a chapter or two from your library for offline reading, but Amazon recommends downloading the entire book at once to avoid the need to re-download your book after every read.
If you have a Kindle or other device that supports the Direct Digital download, you don’t have to worry about the Kindle app’s limitation on reading the ebook in full.
You simply download the entire eBook and you can read it offline, and it’s available in the Kindle store.
