Are you experiencing troubles or do have questions about The Ultimate Homemakers eBook Bundle? Take a look through these frequently asked questions and maybe we can help you out. :)
Receiving Your eBooks and eCourses
How do I receive my eBooks?
After your purchase was completed through Paypal, you should have received an automatic email containing the download links. This email goes directly to whichever email account is connected to your Paypal account.
Sometimes these emails wind up in spam folders, instead of in your inbox. Before you worry that you didn't get the email, make sure you take a good look at your spam folder first. It's a pain, but it happens.
How do I receive my eCourses?
In the email that you receive when you purchase the bundle, there will be special links and/or coupon codes that you will use to access your eCourses.
Downloading, Devices (eReaders, iPads, phones, etc.) and Other Technical Issues
How do I download the ebooks to my computer?
In the email that you receive, there will be links that you will use to download all of the book files. In total you will find around 70 download links, but within these links are all 90+ eBooks included in the sale.
Many of the books are sent as individual files and you will click on the specific link to download each book.
For some of the books, we have put them together into .zip files, with a handful of eBooks in each file (these are noted by the words "folder contains X number of ebooks"). You'll simply download each .zip file onto your computer, then you can open those files up and you'll find all of the books, which you can then save into the appropriate files on your computer.
Note that if you have an older or slower computer, or a slow internet connection, you will only want to start downloading one .zip file at a time to prevent the download from timing out. If your computer/internet connection is fast, you shouldn't have any issues with it.
Can I download them on my iPad, iPhone or any other eReader devices?
Yes, but there is a step you need to take first. Due to the size of these files, they can only be downloaded onto a regular desktop or laptop computer.
If you try to download directly onto any type of smaller device, the files will not download properly.
So first, open up your purchase email and download all files onto your regular computer. Once this is done, then you can proceed to transfer them to your devices.
For Kindle, you can use the "Send to Kindle" app. It works on PC or Mac. It can send files (once they are downloaded) to your Kindle app on your Apple device (ie. iPad or iPhone), Android device, or Kindle.
For other ebook readers, you'll have to do it however you normally do for that device. Usually this involves downloading them onto your computer first, then transferring the files via USB or WiFi to your device after they have been downloaded.
Can I put these eBooks on my Kindle/Nook/eReader?
Yes, you can! But, note that as these are being sold as .PDF files, and not in any specific eReader file type (each eReader uses a different file type, so it would be impossible for us to address all of the various devices and file types out there).
Because they are in .PDF format, some of them will look/work better on an eReader than others. Most eReaders can accommodate these files, they just might not be perfectly formatted to look as good as a file that was made specifically for that device (for example, the font might be slightly small), but most of them should be readable regardless.
For the ones that aren't, they can all still be read on your computer with the use of a Preview program, or whatever you usually use to view .PDF files.
What are .zip files and how do I open them?
We've used .zip files for some of the books simply because they compress files and there are just SO many files included in this bundle. This helps to make it a bit easier and faster to transfer and download the books, even though many of them are still individual downloads. 90+ eBooks is an awful lot!
For both Windows and Mac users, take a look at this very helpful WikiHow tutorial, which will show you exactly how to open .zip files, without a fancy program. As long as your computer is relatively new, you should be able to open the files up without the help of any extra software.
If you have an older computer without this capability, this tutorial gives some ideas of other unzipping software that you can download for free. One way to open .zip files is with a program called WinZip. You can download a trial version here for free.
How long will my download links work for?
The links in your purchase email will work for 4 weeks, which gives you plenty of time to make sure that you get all of your files downloaded and stored properly on your computer.
I would advise that you download them immediately, regardless of the 4 week deadline. It's easy to forget about this sort of thing, and I wouldn't want you to be disappointed to realize that your links no longer work!
You must be sure to download all files before June 1st! (This is important!)
Also, just in case you experience a download error, you have 9 download attempts to make sure that you get all of your books!
(You shouldn't need it, but if for some reason your download attempts run out before you have all of your books, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, include your name and Paypal transaction number, and we'll give you more attempts.)
How do I access the bonus offers?
All of these details will be included in the email that you receive after you purchase your bundle. We will give you specific instructions on how to redeem each one of the bonus offers.
Most of them involve visiting the website of the specific company, and then accessing your bonus offer either through a special link we'll give you, or with a coupon code included in your email.
How long will the bonus offers be available?
All bonus offers will be available for 2 weeks after the sale ends, through May 18th. There will be no extensions on the bonus offers.
These companies have offered what amounts to a significant amount of their inventory, and so for their sake (because we're really grateful for our amazing bonus sponsors!), there needs to be a finite deadline, so that they can prepare adequately to be able to follow through on honoring the bonuses that they've offered.
Do I need to pay shipping?
All of the bonus companies have agreed to honor their regular shipping policies, which means that if they have free shipping at $25 or more, or whatever they usually offer, they'll allow you to get that shipping rate. In other words, a lot of online "special offers" will bump up the shipping in order to compensate for whatever it is they're giving you for "free". Our companies are not doing that.
There are also several items that are digital items (Plan to Eat, ListPlanIt, etc.) and for these bonuses, there is no shipping involved.
What if a company is out of stock or can't honor the bonus offer?
Although we carefully vet each company making a bonus offer and make it clear to them how many redemptions that we expect to receive through this sale, occasionally things happen and a company may possibly run out of stock and be unable to fulfill an offer. We've never had it happen yet, but we're mentioning it because we know that it is a slight possibility.
It's important to remember that this bonuses are simply that... a bonus. They are not the product that you are buying. What you are purchasing is the eBook and eCourse bundle, and the bonuses are offered to sweeten the pot and help to introduce you to some fantastic new companies and products.
The organizers of this bundle are not responsible for any individual company's ability to follow through on the redemption of bonus offers, and each offer is subject to product availability on a first come, first serve basis.
Can I share these bonus offers with my family or friends?
Unfortunately, no. You're welcome to tell anyone about the bundle or these fantastic new companies you've discovered, but these offers are made available solely to those who have bought their OWN eBook bundle, and are not able to be used multiple times.
When you go to redeem your bonus offers, it is likely that companies will require a Paypal transaction number from you, as proof that you have purchased a copy of the eBook bundle. Please be prepared to present them with this information so that they can verify your purchase and honor the bonus offer.
Replacing Lost Files and Sharing Files
What if I lose my eBook files down the road?
Please remember to back up your files (on another computer, on a backup hard drive, on a web-hosted "cloud storage site"). Keeper of the Home and the authors cannot send you copies of eBooks that have been deleted or lost.
Can I share these eBooks with my friends or family members?
Each of the eBooks in The Ultimate Homemaking eBook Bundle is copyrighted by the original author. Your purchase does not entitle you to share the files or upload them anywhere online where others can access them.
Sharing eBooks is theft and steals from the authors who work so hard to create these wonderful resources, so please make sure that you are respecting their copyrights (and you can always point others in the direction of their websites- share the love!).
If you'd like to purchase and give an eBook bundle to someone, that is perfectly fine! Simply purchase one specifically for that person and then "gift" it to them by sending them the download email. :)
Note that we will not be offering refunds (but we WILL make sure that you get what you'd paid for!).
