How To Buy Kindle Books On iPhone?

Access to Kindle on your iPhone is easy but it doesn't allows the in-app purchase. Here is a guide to help you buy books from Kindle on your iPhone.

You cannot buy Kindle Ebooks on iPhone via Kindle or Amazon App. Apple charges a fee on in-app purchases and to avoid paying any extra money Amazon has not implemented this feature. You can still buy Kindle Ebooks on iPhone or iPad if you have your Amazon ID and Password. Next, after purchase the books will be synced to your iPhone Kindle App.

While we have access to the vast e-book library of Kindle on our phones, but still can not buy the books directly through the app. Amazon doesn’t allow you to buy directly from the app on your iPhone to avoid paying an in-app purchase amount to Apple. But do not worry, you can still buy Kindle books on your iPhone easily. All you need is an Amazon ID and a Kindle app installed on your iPhone. The Kindle must be logged in using the same Amazon ID you will use to buy the books.
