You want to buy that ebook online, but you don’t have a credit card or PayPal account.
No problem. You can pay for an ebook card in cash and download the ebook on your device by using the access code listed in the card. Simple and easy. These cards will be on sale TOMORROW at 2 pm at the launch of Philippine Speculative Fiction Vol. 9. I have a story in it!
Here’s a post from Flipside Acquisitions Editor David Ong.
So we’ve been trying out this new ‘model’ (if I may call it that) — selling ebooks via ebook cards. Here’s how they work: instead of paying via credit card, PayPal, etc, you can pay us in cash for the title you want, and we give you a corresponding card. Then, when you get home, you log in to your Flipreadsaccount (or make one if you don’t have one yet), go to the URL indicated on the card, enter the access code (also listed on the card), and voila! You may now download the ebook! (Yeah, I really want this to catch on, particularly since not a huge percentage of Filipinos have credit cards.)
While I’m at it, join us for the official book launch of Philippine Speculative Fiction Volume 9 tomorrow at CBTL, Shangri-La, 2-4pm! We’ll have ebook cards for ALL volumes of PSF available for sale, though only in limited numbers!
