Pity Kobo forgot about the "convenient" part of in-device purchasing, what with no cart so you can buy multiples in a single transaction and not revealing prices when searching - have to hit Buy Now (either in the search results or on the book's information page) and then you have to enter your billing information. Dunno about after that because I can't be arsed to enter the information so that I can finally see the price of the book I (supposedly) want to buy. :P [Kobo Touch, v2.1.5]
