register for shopping

Why do I have to register an account to buy an ebook? I prefer not to.
I give you e-money and you give me a download link. :)

  • Hello,
    we require you to have an account ( which is free to create and can be closed at any time) so that you have a repository for your purchased ebooks, videos and registered print books.

    It's also a portal to a bunch of really great discounts you can use to maximize your savings when shopping with us. You can find the details of those here:

    If you have any further questions or require further assistance,
    You can contact us at:
