Kobo eReaders

O‚Äčn July 1, 2018, Kobo instituted a new process for ABA member stores to purchase eReaders to sell in-store or online. Stores will now use unique discount codes to purchase devices at a 5% discount.  Information on using discount codes can be found here.
All ABA bookstore members in good standing are eligible to participate Kobo’s eReader program. To receive discount codes, email Kobo-ABA-hardware@mail.rakuten.com.* You will receive a confirmation email along with INTERNAL and EXTERNAL discount codes from Kobo. A unique discount code is affiliated to each ABA member, and each code can be used multiple times by that store.
Stores can visit https://us.kobobooks.com to order in-store inventory with their internal discount code. Please note this URL has been updated, and a password is no longer required to enter the store.
The external discount code allows ABA members to promote Kobo hardware to their customers through an online affiliate program, with no inventory liability. External discounts codes are to be shared with your customers.
*Include your Kobo affiliate ID, ABA Member ID, store name, main contact email, address, and phone.
