Reading on a Kindle

  • 1. Visit your "Kindle Personal Document Settings" page.
  • 2. Under "Approved Personal Document E-mail List", click "Add a new approved e-mail address".
  • 3. Add the address: team@tomely.com
  • 4. Under "Send-to-Kindle E-Mail Settings", find the email corresponding to your preferred Kindle device (it should be of the form user@kindle.com). Enter this address at the top of your Tomely order download page, under "Send all your purchased books directly to your Kindle or Kindle app".
  • (If this doesn't work for you, you might want to try downloading the .mobi files manually to your computer, then using Amazon's free Send to Kindle app for Mac/PC.)


    Reading on an iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch

    We'll send you an email after you purchase an ebook through Tomely. Open this email on your iOS device. Tap on the ePub link. By default, the book will open in iBooks, or you can click "Open in..." to read in the app of your choice.


    Other devices

    ePub is the file format standard for ebooks. If you've got an ereader that isn't a Kindle, it's very likely it opens up ePub files. If you've got a Kindle, you'd download the mobi. Below, we've listed a bunch of our favourite ways to read:

    Buying with PayPal

    All our payments to writers and publishers are processed through PayPal, but you don't need a PayPal account to purchase a Bkclb ebook. You can pay directly using your Mastercard, Visa, Amex, or debit card. Once you click "Checkout", look for "Pay with a credit or debit card".

    Unfortunately, PayPal does not always allow buyers to purchase with a credit card. This may be because of your location, because the author or publisher has set up their account incorrectly, or because your browser cookies are telling PayPal you already have an account (if this is the case, you can try clearing your cookies).
