    My favourite feature. Great addition!
    Question. Is this going to be free for premium members? I rather buy a premium membership rather than just pay the listing price.

    Add my vote for being able to offer free eBooks.. I sold about ~1000 copies of my ebook here a few years ago, but would now like to offer it for free (i'm in it just for the love of helping other people.. really.. seriously) ..
    Maybe you could setup some kind of review system to keep out the riff-raff.. or, only allow members with a minimum of 4,355 posts to offer them for free :cool:

    It would be nice to somehow handle free eBooks... like maybe just make them non-reviewable or something. Making it so you can review/rate it if only if you actually BOUGHT the eBook is terribly effective for keeping out fake reviews/rating.

    Me as well, otherwise our items won't get noticed. What I'm afraid is that some people will sell cheap anyway just for the sake of getting $1 or $2 at a time.

    But as you said it's a matter of seeing how it goes, and I'm really interested on this.

    Well, it's like selling with anything... if someone wants to sell something that is ACTUAL quality for $1... it's tough to compete with that. And as lame as it is of the seller, it's their right to do it. If someone is selling low-quality stuff for cheap, the idea is that stuff is going to get buried pretty quick... it's not going to show up as a "top rated" or a "top grossing"...

    And the "top rated" or a "top grossing" is what really makes this different than a subforum with a ton of offers, hence my interest :)
    A link for secondary tops (top 10 or top 20, instead of just the top 4) would be also helpful.

    What browser/version are you using? How big is your eBook?

    Have you tried another browser just to see if it's something specific to the browser?

    I meant size as in file size... how big is it in MB?

    What version of Firefox?

    Can you try with something like Google Chrome just to see if it's something going on with Firefox?

    Strange... should definitely not have an issue with a 2MB file unless maybe your Internet connection is very slow and it's just timing out or something.

    Currently it's not free for premium members. If that changes, I'll let people know (of course).

    I'll try my P.C at home, I'm in the library now, I'll get back with you later if I'm still having a problem.

    They might have some sort of firewall in place at the library that blocks uploading of files larger than 500k or something. Certainly wouldn't surprise me. Either way, if you have problems when you are on your own network, let me know.
