Ebooks

The term “ebook” refers to books that are published in an electronic format and can take the form of, among others:

  • A downloadable file in PDF or other format. The book’s format should be clearly specified in the book’s description.
  • An access code that will provide access to an online version of the book, sometimes for a specified, limited period of time.

AbeBooks’ Bookseller Policy requires that all ebooks be accurately described as such, by the inclusion of the phrase, “This is an ebook,” in the book’s description.

Booksellers offering ebooks on AbeBooks must adhere to publishers copyright restrictions. If the copyright holder informs us of a violation of those rights, we will take immediate action and remove those listings.

AbeBooks’ Bookseller Policy allows booksellers to have a ‘final sale’ policy on ebooks, as long as the description includes the following: “This is an ebook. All sales final.” This means that the seller is permitted to refuse any return or refund request for any ebook purchased. Please read the book’s description carefully before ordering to make yourself aware of whether or not this policy applies and proceed with the order only if such a policy is acceptable to you.

To search specifically for ebooks, search for your book by title, author, and/or ISBN, and include ebook, e-book in the Keywords field.
