What is the step-by-step process of buying and using a TOUCH ebook?
  1. Find an ebook, add it to your cart, and complete the checkout process using a credit card.

  2. Download your ebooks at the end of your order (sample below) and wait for an email from the ebook delivery system with instructions as to how to proceed.

  3. Your confirmation email will come from support@ebookdeliverysystem.com. This email contains links and an attachment required to open and use your ebooks. Until you get this email you will not be able to open your ebooks.

    (Note: This email is not the auto-responder email received shortly after your order is completed from sales@touchusa.org. You'll receive a second email)

  4. Download and install the Locklizard reader (links found below). If you cannot locate it in your programs or applications folder, you were not successful. Try again.

    Apple Mac Reader (OS 10.4 or higher

    Apple iOS Instructions for downloading the viewer and authorizing it

  5. Double-click on the license key file attached to the email you received. This is similar to a unique  serial number required for the reader software.

  6. Open the ebook.

  7. To Print your ebook, DO NOT TEST PRINT OR PRINT A PARTIAL PART OF THE BOOK. Unless specified otherwise, our ebooks have a one-shot printing opportunity on them. This means you must choose "all pages" when you print the first time because you cannot come back and print the balance of the book at a later time without paying additional fees to TOUCH ($2 per printing, regardless of page range printed).


Frequently Asked Questions

Can I read my ebook immediately after I download it?
No. We must process your payment first. Ebooks purchased after 3 pm CST, weekends, or holidays may be processed for payment on the following business day. Ebooks purchased between 9 am and 3 pm Monday-Friday CST will be activated before the end of business that day. We will email you when your payment has cleared.

What can I do with my ebook?
You can read it on one computer/device and print it one time (unless you bought a multi-print edition of the ebook).

What is not permitted?
• You cannot transfer the ebook to another computer or device without purchasing another copy.
• You will not be able to print the ebook as much as you like without paying extra fees.

Will it work on my Mac? How about my PC? 
Yes! Our ebooks can be used on a computer running Windows (XP, Vista, 7) or a Mac OS 10.4 or higher.

Will it work on my Apple iPad or iPhone or iPod Touch? 
Yes. The instructions for how to download the reader and activate it on your iOS device will be sent to you after purchase. 

Will it work on my Android device? 
No. Not at this time.

I forgot to download my ebooks! How do I access them now?
Log into our shopping cart system and then click on "My Account" (top right hand corner of the page) and you will see a link at the bottom where your downloads are found.

May I freely copy the printout of my ebook?
No. This would break US and International copyright laws just like copying pages of a traditionally printed book.

How do I buy additional printing rights for my ebooks?

Contact us and we will electronically increase your printing license remotely for $2 per copy. Or, you can buy printing rights from our shopping cart. Search for "locklizard printing" and you'll see the item. Put it in a cart, add the number of prints you want to make for all ebooks, and then during checkout tell us how many additional prints to add to each title.
