Do you shop on your Kobo?

Just curious, how many people shop on their Kobo?

I voted No because I rarely from Kobo. I usually get my paid books from the Google Play store because people have given me gift cards for birthdays or Christmas.

My primary use of my ereaders is for library books. I do my browsing for those on my phone because it's so much easier and faster, then sync the books on my Kobo.

No. I never shop on any of my ereaders. Only on my laptops and very seldom on my phone. That's because I want to compare the prices in different stores before buying something.

I don’t know how to vote, as it would be “almost never” but it’s not entirely outside the realm of never having done so. I’ll go with no, I guess.

It’s easier and faster to shop from a tablet and besides, you can get a rebate that way.

No, always on my computer.

Much easier.

Then synch after.

I also borrow lots of books from my library.

No here as well. I only make purchases from my PC, then load into Calibre and sideload to my reader. That keeps all my books nicely in one location and well organized so I don't buy the same book again (as I've done with paperbacks in the past...).

I've never done a sync after registering my H2O. So since I don't sync, there's no reason for me to buy eBooks using my H2O. Besides, as was said I can shop around.

Also, I do use Overdrive a lot and given that I have access to multiple libraries, I find using my laptop easy to do.

No, I buy on the PC, load to Calibre, sync to Dropbox and if I want to read it right away, also sideload to my ereader. Thus I have it stored in Calibre with metadata, backed up to the cloud and de-DRMed.

I've had Kobos for around 30 months now, and I think I may have bought one book on device, so I went with no. Since I work from home, my 32-inch monitor provides a much better shop window than my 7-inch Libra.

I used to do it sometimes. But now to make purchases you have to give a code that appears on the phone and then another code that is fixed and the bank gives it to you. Doing it from the Kobo is too inconvenient. So I always buy books using the PC.

Frequently
Occasionally

No, because I use PayPal and that's just not an option on my device.

I would formulate the question differently: do you need links to the Kobo store on the device, do you go to it?

And then, according to this poll, it seems that these same links 90% of users are absolutely not needed ...
