Giving away ebooks?

What is the best way to buy ebooks as gifts here on the O'Reilly shop?
I'm holding seminars for employees in my company, and thought it would be useful to sometimes give away a copy of a relevant ebook to those interested.

When buying ebooks here I've noticed that I can only buy one, as the quantity column only contains a "remove" link.
If there is a way to buy multiple copies, is there then a way to transfer a book to somebody elses account?
Or is there some way to buy book vouchers so the recipients can create accounts themselves and then claim the book?

Best regards,
Joakim Lindfors

  • Hello Joakim,

    The best way to buy multiple ebooks is to have those who are going to receive the ebooks create O'Reilly accounts. You wont be able to order multiple ebooks using our site so to place the order you will have to call 1-800-889-8969 or 1-707-827-7019 from outside the USA 7:30 am to 5:00 PST or write to Once the order is placed we can then put the ebook into the account by using the recipients e-mail address associated with their O'Reilly account. Information on the usage of our ebooks can be found here:

    Hope this helps and have a great day!

    Kind regards,
