Frequently Asked Questions
How long have you guys been around?
We launched on January 8th, 2013.
Some of these books aren't actually free! What gives?
We update our database once a day. But because prices are updated throughout the day, you might find some books in our lists that were free when we checked, but are no longer so. We're working on ways to handle such occurrences as well as possible. But always make sure to check the final price before purchasing!
Are you expanding to other countries and websites?
We currently offer our service for Barnes & Nobles and Amazon US customers, but plan on expanding further. If there's an expansion that you're waiting for, please let us know and we'll notify you when it's available.
Sometimes, books appear as "unavailable for download". What's that about?
This happens occasionally for users who aren't physically in the country they're purchasing an ebook from. For example, someone with a Canadian or Dutch mailing address trying to complete a download from the USA. The reason has to do with different copyright issues across borders, and there's not much we can do about it. Our listings display the ebooks available in the country indicated.
I'm an author with a free book. How can I get it listed on your site?
Our "sifter" runs once a day to collect all the books which have newly become free at various retailers. As long as it's found as free, your book should automatically show up on our website. If or when the free promotion ends, the book will be removed from our lists.Other questions? Send an email to email@example.com and we'll answer as soon as possible. And we'll continue updating this FAQ whenever necessary.
