Frequently asked questions

  • How do I buy a Kobo Plus subscription?
    Open Close

    Currently, Kobo Plus subscriptions are exclusively available to residents of Canada, Belgium and the Netherlands.

    On either kobo.com or a Kobo eReader, select Start Free Trial on the item details screen of an eligible Kobo Plus book, or from the end of its preview. If you’re shopping with us for the first time, you’ll be taken to checkout and asked to provide your credit card and billing information.

    You can also start your free Kobo Plus trial in the Kobo App for Android. If you're using the Kobo App for iOS, you'll need to visit kobo.com to start your trial.

    You won’t be charged for the first 30 days. After the free trial period, we’ll charge you $9.99 a month plus any applicable taxes, unless you cancel. Your credit card will not be charged if you cancel before the trial period is over.

    Please note that residents of Quebec, Canada are not eligible for a free 30-day trial; we'll charge you $9.99 when you subscribe and on a monthly recurring basis, unless you cancel.

  • Why do I need to add credit card information for a free trial?
    Open Close

    Free trials are only offered as part of a subscription plan. We require your credit card information to cover your recurring subscription charges once the free trial is complete. Your credit card will not be charged if you cancel before the trial period is over.

  • Why do I need to provide my mailing address?
    Open Close

    Your mailing address is required as part of your billing information so we can accurately charge sales tax based on where you live.

  • Can I read my Kobo Plus books offline, or do I need to be connected to a wireless network?
    Open Close

    Yes, you can read offline. Many readers like to disconnect their devices from Wi Fi, either while travelling, or simply to save on battery life. You can read a maximum of 15 Kobo Plus books while offline over a 30-day period on a Kobo eReader or in the Kobo App.

    Once you’ve opened 15 books, or reached the end of the 30-day period of offline reading, you’ll need to reconnect to Wi Fi and sync your eReader or app. You’ll then be able to open up to 15 Kobo Plus books for another 30 days.

  • I have a subscription and am moving to a country where Kobo Plus is not currently offered. What happens to my books?
    Open Close

    Currently, Kobo Plus subscriptions are exclusively available to residents of Canada, Belgium and the Netherlands. If you change your billing address to another country while you have an active subscription, you’ll still have access to your Kobo Plus books until you reach the end of your current billing period, but you won’t be able to search for or add new Kobo Plus titles to your subscription.

    Once your current billing period ends, your Kobo Plus subscription will be cancelled. You can always renew it if you move back to Canada, Belgium, or the Netherlands.
