Can’t Buy Kindle Book On iPhone

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016 by | Filed Under: eReaders, iOS, Quick Tips, Smartphones

I heard from a reader who was having trouble  purchasing a book on the Kindle app for her iPhone. “Amazon is only letting me progress as far as to put them on a list, but I can’t seem to purchase? What am I doing wrong?”


Have you purchase books directly from your Kindle app on the iPhone before.  If not, it’s possible you don’t have in-app purchases turned on for your Kindle app.  If you have purchased before, it’s possible that something has changed about your credit card information since the last time you made a purchase from the phone.  Perhaps it expired?

If neither of these turns out to be the case, I’d suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the app.

    It’s been a long time since Apple allowed apps to sell things directly from the iPhone. They used to allow a ‘Buy’ button, but they were removed many years ago. You have to go to their web site to purchase a book from the iPhone or iPad.
