Getting Started with eCookbooks

To access your cookbook as an eCookbook you will need to purchase a standalone license or a license included with your printed cookbook. Both can be selected in the "Preview & Order" section of the cookbook designer.

Demo & Features

Check out our demo of the eCookbook Reader app here.

Purchasing eCookbook Add-on

The add-on is an upgrade to a printed cookbook that allows you to access the book in electronic format as well as physical. For each copy of a cookbook that includes the eCookbook add-on you will receive one code to redeem an electronic copy. Each user needs their own electronic copy and a unique code to use the cookbook.

Purchasing Standalone eCookbook

You can purchase copies of eCookbooks by themselves as well, if you don't want the printed copy to go along with it. Just choose it as a binding style in the "Preview & Order" section.

Purchasing an eCookbook entitles one person to view that cookbook in the Recipe Reader app available in Google Play™ and Apple App Store™ or download the PDF to their device.

Registering or Gifting Your eCookbook

Regardless of which purchase option you choose, you will receive an email with "registration codes" (one per copy you purchased) to activate or gift your eCookbook. You can also locate your activation codes by heading to the Activation Codes section of your account.


To register the eCookbook to your account, locate the eCookbook title, click the Actions drop-down, then choose "Apply to My Account."


Alternatively, you may register cookbooks directly in your iPhone, iPad, or Android device by downloading the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play respectively, and registering the book directly in the app.

To gift the code via email, choose Email Code, input the recipients email, and send. It's that easy!


To gift the code in person, choose Print Certificate to download and print a PDF version of the certificate.
