Pricing model for buying print version after having bought e-book version

Hi,

I've bought the e-book versions of several of your books. For some of them, I'd like to buy the print version as well, but I'm a bit put off by the pricing model: I am offered a 40% discount because I already own the e-book version, but this is still twice as much as I would have paid if I had originally bought e-book and print versions together. Why is this so?

Thank you,
Kimberley Coburn

  • Hello Kimberley,

    Great idea, and one we'd like to implement but haven't had many requests for. Most of our customers use our ebook update since they're migrating from print to electronic. For that reason we've put developer resources into other projects that have a higher demand.

    The good news is that you can contact our customer service folks and they'll take care of you: 1-800-998-9938 / 707-827-7000 / accounts@oreilly.com I will also watch this thread to gauge interest in adding this feature.

    Many thanks for your interest in our books.
