Q: What if I already own an earlier generation Kobo eReader? Can I shop for eBooks through your store?
A: Yes. You will need to establish a new Kobo account by following the link to Kobo on our website. Then, when you next use your device, sign out of the old account and sign in using the new account name. You can then search and buy eBooks either through the device or through the web, and continue your much-appreciated support of this store.
Q: Does Kobo allow sharing of books between Kobo devices, like Kindle and Nook do?
A: It is not possible for a Kobo customer to lend or share eBooks from their library with another person. The eBooks in your Kobo library are tied directly to your account and password.
Q: Once purchased, if a book is DRM protected, is there a limit to the number of downloads?
A: If a file is DRM protected it may be downloaded 6 times in total. This restriction is set forth by the publisher and is the same for all DRM files.
