So what? Is there something I'm not getting about Fictionwise?
Actually, in order to use Micropay money you have to have enough to pay for the entire book that way - you don't pay part with Micropay money and part another form. I think what you may have been seeing is the amount of Micropay money you earn
when you purchase a specific book, not how much you can spend. So if you have $10 in Micropay money you can get any book up to that price "free".
