If you’re in the app, you can get the coins necessary to unlock books individually. When you go to unlock a book, the app will always consider the current balance you have in your wallet, and display the minimum amount of coins required to unlock that audiobook. Keep in mind that you can only purchase coins in bundles of 200, meaning that the amount of coins you purchase will always round up to the nearest 200-coin value. Each 200-coin bundle costs $2.99 USD.
Once you decide which book you would like to listen to next, there are three possible scenarios.
1. You have enough coins to unlock a book.
If you have enough coins for the book, the book will automatically unlock.
In the picture above, for example, the member had 1,000 coins and used 900 of their existing coins to unlock “Bird Box”.
2. You have no coins in your wallet.
If you don’t have sufficient funds for that particular book, you can acquire coins directly through the book’s info page. Take a look at the image below!
This user had 0 coins, so they had to purchase coins in order to unlock “Bird Box”. Since we only offer coins in bundles of 200 in the app, all you have to do is click the plus or minus button until you have enough coins to unlock the book. In this example, the user bought 1,000 coins, used 900 coins to unlock “Bird Box,” and still had 100 coins left over to apply to their next book. Cool, right?
3. You have some coins, but not enough to purchase the book you want.
If you already have a balance in your account, but not enough for the specific book you would like to unlock, you can add bundles to your account super easily!
Go to the book page of the title you want to unlock, and click the “Unlock Audiobook” button.
This user has 400 coins, and wants a book that costs 900 coins. Because the user doesn't have enough coins in their wallet to unlock this book, they must purchase more.
Coins are only sold in bundles of 200. This user would purchase 600 coins to unlock the book. They will also have 100 coins left over, which they can use later for future purchases.
Once the title is unlocked, it will automatically be added to your library. You can also download it for offline listening!
