Buy more than one book at a time?

I saved several books on kobobook.com to research and probably buy later. I have three gift cards - is there a way to buy those books at the same time using the cards, instead of having to buy one book at a time?

Kobobooks does not have a fully developed shopping cart system, so it is one book at a time for now.

I recently bought my daughter a series of 4 books with a chapters/indigo gift card taht she got for her birthday. I had to individually buy the books and enter the multidigit card number adn pin each time. This is a PITA I would think that a well developed shopping cart should be a high priority for KOBO books.

Sameer if you are reading... I love my kobo but you gotta make buying books easier.

Baronrus; I thought (and I might be wrong here) that the ability existed for you to "pre-charge" or "prime" you Kobo books account with gift cards....

What you might try is this....

Go to http://www.kobobooks.com/egiftcards and purchase an eGift-card for your daughter; pay for it with the Chapters gift card. That eGift card will then be associated with her Kobo account, and should be usable to pay for books.

That would be great a good cart would certainly encourage us buyers to buy more than one book at a time.

You could have just copy and pasted the gift card numbers

It's not bad with Firefox, because it remembers the card and pin numbers so I typed the first three digits of the card and clicked the drop down that appeared. Not the best solution but it removed some of the pain.
