Buying a gift certificate

If you want to give someone the gift of an ebook but can't decide which book to give you can always purchase a gift certificate. This is a discount code the recipient of the gift certificate can enter at the checkout to discount their order by the amount of money left on the gift certificate.

Gift certificates do not expire, and if the recipient does not use the entire value of a gift certificate in one order the remaining amount is still available to use in a subsequent order.

Gift certificates can be purchased in amounts ranging from $10 up to $200. Please note that if the recipient lives in a different territory from you we will convert the value of the gift certificate to their local currency. For instance, if you are based in the US and purchase a $50 gift certificate to give to your relative in the United Kingdom, then when they apply the gift certificate it will be converted to the equivalent amount in pounds sterling (£).

To make the purchase first click on the Gift Certificates link at the top of the homepage.

Then select the amount and click 'Buy Now' to add the book to your shopping cart. You can then continue shopping, or proceed to the checkout.

Once you have gone to the checkout and completed your purchase you will then be able to enter the recipient's name, email address, the date you wish the gift certificate to be emailed to them and your own personalised message to appear in the email. You must then press Submit to save this information and send the email at the appropriate time.

If you wish to enter this information at a later date you can do so by logging in to your account and clicking your My Account page, then the heading 'My Gift Certificates'. If you click the Send button you can then enter the recipient's name email, send date and personalised message. Just be sure to click the 'Submit' button to ensure the Gift Certificate is sent.


Or if instead of a gift certificate you want to gift a specific ebook to a friend please see our article on Making a gift purchase.
