Why am I asked to pay for free Kindle ebooks?

Meleisa T August 26, 2011

I am downloading free ebooks for Kindle on PC and clicking on buy for Kindle Price: $0.00 includes free international wireless delivery via Amazon Whispernet, the payment information page is coming up to pay.

What is the problem? If the book is free, why is it asking for payment?

    this to keep track on how many download it, so if the page that is opened with price to charge 0 then its okay. Possible you downloaded some ebooks that for limited time only are free so the price got down to 0.

    Free Kindle Books offers  E-books under the same identical terms as
    Project Gutenberg. they consider these to be "the same books" as Project
    Gutenberg, file-format-converted to run natively on Kindle and other MOBI and
    PRC compatible E-Book Readers

    possible Limited Time Free eBook Offers

    Unless it asks you to pay an amount, there's no problem. Amazon uses that information to see who's downloading books, and how often they 'sell', which affects the number of free books they offer, and which titles. It may also be used for suggesting books to you, based on prior purchases.
