Buying and Using Ready-Ed Publications’ Ebooks

What is an ebook?
Our ebooks are digital versions (pdfs) of our hardcopy photocopy masters.

What format do ebooks come in and what do I need to open an ebook?
Ebooks are delivered in the versatile .PDF format. Ebooks can be read on-screen or printed an unlimited number of times on demand. (Check the Copyright Notice accompanying each book.) Most computers will already have the Abode Reader software required to view this format. If not already installed on your computer it can be downloaded for free here.

How much are ebooks?
About one third of the normal price of a hard copy version.

How do I pay?
You pay with your credit card or PayPal. Both are secure payment methods.
Hard copy books can still be bought via our website and will be mailed to you (in Australia only).

Ready to buy an ebook? Follow these easy steps:

  1. Go to the menu panel down the left hand side of our Home Page.
  2. Click on the subject area you are interested in. Cover images and brief descriptions of the books available will display. Click on the title you’re interested in and another page will open up detailing the ebook.
    This page also contains a link to a sample file which gives you an idea of what the ebook is about.
  3. Select and purchase. To purchase select the book version you are wishing to buy – for customers in the UK, US or NZ only ebook versions are available to you. Follow the prompts to complete the payment process.
  4. Download. Once payment is made you can DOWNLOAD (copy) the ebook to your own computer. If your computer gives you the option to choose where to save it, ensure you save it to a safe place (your Desktop?), alternatively, your ebook can be found in your computer’s “Downloads” folder”. You can open the file later and print out the pages you want to use.

Why can I only download my ebook 3 times?
We give permission to download your ebook 3 times in case you loose it and need in the future to download it again – but you actually only need to download it once. You can save it your computer, copy it to your laptop, to your ebook reader and any other device that you wish… our ebooks are not encrypted and you can open them as many times and in many devices as you need.

Payment Methods and Security

What payment methods do you accept?

If I give credit card details who can access them?

Installing Writing Font Files

To use any of the fonts in Word (or your preferred program) they must be installed in your Fonts folder. All you really need to do is to drag the file into the Fonts folder from your desktop.

To do this:

  1. Ensure that the Font file is on your desktop after having downloaded it from the website.
  2. Click on Start (bottom lh corner of your screen)
  3. Click on Control Panel and see where the Fonts folder is. Make sure the Control Panel window is minimised to display as a small window.
  4. Click on the Font on your desktop and drag it across into the Fonts folder.
  5. You will probably then need to re-start your computer for the font to be available for use.

Discount & Voucher Codes

From time to time we offer a discount on our books using a discount code at the checkout. These discounts are offered as a goodwill gesture. These discount codes may be offered under certain conditions, which will be specified, and the customer will only qualify for the discount if such conditions are met. Examples may include, but not be limited to: certain specified books only, certain formats (hard copy or ebook), certain expiry dates etc.

If a customer forgets or fails to input a discount code at the checkout during the purchasing process, unfortunately we cannot add this to your order subsequently and the customer will not be able to claim the discount.
