You only pay the download fee the first time a user downloads a particular eBook. Let's say Bob downloads an eBook called Incredible Cookie Recipes through our service onto his PC. A week later, he decides to download the same eBook on his iPad. The only time the download fee is accrued when Bob downloads the eBook for the first time. A couple of days later, Sue also downloads the same eBook on her laptop. A download fee is accrued. But if she downloads the same eBook onto her Nook the following week, you don't pay a fee. All this is because our system tracks which user downloads which eBook and charges you for only the first download of an eBook by a certain user.
Download fees are billed on a monthly schedule at a flat rate based on your subscription tier.
Please note that you will not be charged for download fees if you choose Social DRM as your preferred DRM setting.
