Here's what you need to know to buy your next great listen
How do I make a purchase?
To make a purchase, you must first ask Alexa to read the audiobook you are interested in (“Alexa, read…”). Before she begins the sample, she will tell you how many credits you have available. At any point during the sample you can interrupt and purchase it. Simply say “Alexa, buy this book.” Alexa will then confirm you wish to use one of your credits. If you say “yes”, she will add the book to your library and begin playing it.
Do I need to play the sample in order to buy the book?
Yes, you must ask Alexa to read a sample before purchasing the book.
Do I need to listen to the whole sample to buy the book?
No, you can interrupt a sample and purchase the book at any point by saying “Alexa, buy this book.”
Do I need credits in order to make a purchase?
Yes, you must have a credit available to make a purchase using Alexa. Cash purchases are not currently supported on Alexa-enabled devices, but we hope to offer this feature soon.
On which devices can I make a purchase?
You can redeem your credits and make a purchase on any Alexa-enabled Echo or Fire device. This includes Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Dot, Echo Spot, Echo Show, Echo Tap, Fire HD Tablets and Fire TV.
Can I listen to my book on another device after buying it with Alexa?
Yes, any books you purchase with Alexa will be added to your Audible library. You can switch between devices or listen via the Audible app without ever losing your place.
