How to download an eBook?

  • After your payment, an email is sent with a temporary URL, with which you can download the purchased book. This URL has a limited life span of two days.
  • If the first attempt to download is unsuccessful, you can request a new URL by visiting our website and following the tab "My Account" and "Titles". This lists all the books purchased on our website that you can download anytime.
  • Your personal account can be linked to your online library; for each digital book purchased on our website, a click on the "Download" button automatically triggers the sending of a message to your email address, with a new download link.

A few important notes:

  • Some email software tends to block the hyperlinks in emails. In this case, you must copy and paste the download URL sent by the site directly into the bar of your browser.
  • Before downloading, make sure you have a fully functional version of Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to open and read the purchased file.
  • The download time will vary depending on the file size (indicated at the time of downloading) and the speed of your Internet access.
  • In terms of saving the file, it is best to record it directly onto the hard disk of your device and open it in a second time. If the file opens directly in the browser, we recommend that you first save to your hard drive.
