โ—๏ธ Important note: The option "Request a book that's on Amazon" is only available for users that are in these regions:

  • ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง The UK

  • ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ USA

  • ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช Germany

  • ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ Spain

On the platform, we have thousands of resources to choose fromโ€”from conferences to coaching, online courses, podcasts, and much more!

From the Explore page of the Learnerbly platform, you can use the Discover tab to see which resources are currently trending for your company, such as resources we've added recently, as well as personalised recommendations based on what and how you like to learn.

However, if you don't find what you are looking for, and you would like to request an Amazon book (not Kindle) you can do so by clicking on "Resource not on Learnerbly?" in the header of your dashboard:

After clicking on Resource not on Learnerbly? you will see the following option:

Note on cross-region requests: Due to logistics and region restrictions, it's not possible to make cross-region requests. Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

  1. First, make sure that the book and the format of the book are the correct ones you want. Each book format has a different link with a different ASIN code (Amazon Standard Identification Number), and our system uses that ASIN code to identify that book and the format. Please double-check that you are using the correct link in the right format and that the book is in stock (we can't fulfil out of stock books or books that are on pre-order).

    Currently, we can only purchase books that are sold and dispatched by Amazon. We don't fulfil from third-party providers or Amazon Marketplace. If you add a link to a book that is sold and/or dispatched by a third party or Amazon Marketplace, the system will reject the book. Please check that the book states that is dispatched and sold by Amazon.

  2. Copy and paste the right Amazon link for the format and book you want. You can also double-check in this step the book and the format you are suggesting:

    If everything is fine, click on the "Looks good! Let's continue" button.

    NOTE: If you encounter an error, it might be for the following reasons:

    • The book should be dispatched and sold by Amazon.

    • The URL page of the book is correct and valid. (The ASIN code for the particular book should be all numeric)

    • The delivery date should NOT be more than 2 weeks.

    • The book is "In Stock".

    • The book is NEW. (We are unable to fulfill ๐Ÿ™… USED books)

    • The book is either Paperback or Hardcover only.

    • The book is NOT๐Ÿ™… pre-order.

    • The URL link you are inserting is associated with the content region assigned to you. (e.g your geographic region is in the UK, then the URL link should be from Amazon UK)

  3. Then, on the following page, you can send a message to your approver manager, as well as confirm your shipping details (for physical books). Please double-check that all the information is correct before confirming.

    If you need to update your address, only click on "Change address".

    By default, your request will be shown to your colleagues at your organization. If you don't wish to share this, only turn off the button "Iโ€™m happy for this request to be shown to others at (the name of your company)"

  4. Done! You will receive a confirmation email that your request will either be sent to your manager for approval. Once it's approved, our system will purchase this for you, and it will be on your way!

โ€‹Note: We would like to inform you that the estimated delivery date may be subject to change, as sometimes logistical issues from Amazon can cause delays. Should the book not arrive on the expected date, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can check this with Amazon. We kindly ask that you keep an eye on it!
