Will my subscription automatically renew?

Yes, your subscription will automatically renew when your free trial period expires, and you will be billed within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period for as long as your subscription remains active. Your subscription is a recurring payment that you can cancel anytime.

  • Your subscription automatically renews monthly unless canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period.
  • Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period for $11.99 USD (+tax where applicable) 
  • Your subscription can be managed in your account page, and auto-renewal can be turned off at any time 
  • We have in-depth instructions on how to cancel your subscription available here.

Can I cancel at any time?

Yes, of course! After you cancel, you'll keep any remaining paid subscription time. When this time is up, your account will revert to its free features.

Please note: All subscriptions purchased through the App Store or Google Play are solely handled by their respective companies - their security policies prevent us from being able to cancel any charges on our subscribers' behalf. Subscriptions started through Google Play must be canceled through Google Play, while subscriptions started through our iPhone or iPad app using the App Store will need to be canceled through the App Store.

What countries can I use my subscription in?

Everand, Scribd and SlideShare are available in most countries worldwide! Looking for a beach read or something to enjoy on a long flight? Bring us along! You can take ebooks and audiobooks with you when you travel by installing the Everand app on one of your mobile devices and saving books for offline reading. No internet connection is no reason to be without book options!

Due to our agreements with authors and publishers, the availability of specific titles may vary somewhat from country to country. We understand that this can be frustrating and do our best to make every book available to every reader. Rest assured: Most of our library is available worldwide, and if one title isn't, there are plenty of others to choose from.

What mobile devices can I use with your apps?

Our websites can be accessed through a browser on any computer and most smartphone or tablet devices with an internet connection. You can install our mobile apps on your iPhone or iPad (iOS 16 or higher is required), your Android device (Android 5.0 or higher is required), your Fire tablet, or your Nook Tablet to store books for offline reading when an internet connection isn't available.

Unfortunately, e-ink readers like the Nook GlowLight and most versions of the Kindle are not supported. 

Are authors being paid when I read books on Everand?

Of course! Everand’s library is offered to subscribers based on agreements we've made with our authors and publishing partners, ensuring that they can continue to share great books for all of us to enjoy.
