What is a “pre-order” function?


It is a function which enables you to purchase eBooks automatically on the date of delivery.

By “pre-ordering” eBook(s) on the Release Schedule, it allows you to automatically purchase eBook(s) on the delivery date.

Your pre-ordered eBooks can be confirmed on the “List of Pre-Ordered eBooks “ in My Account, and can be cancelled if it is before 11:59 PM (JST) on the day before the delivery date.

* The process for automatic purchase is performed sequentially, and may take up to 30 minutes to complete.
* The process for automatic purchase starts running from 12:00 AM (JST) on the delivery date. Therefore, you may not cancel your pre-order after 12:00 AM (JST) on the delivery date, even if the eBook has not been purchased yet.

■Payment Method:

There are two types of payment methods.

1. Credit Card
Full price of the pre-ordered eBook will be paid automatically with a credit card.
