Ebooks cost much less than physical books, often between $2.99 - $6.99, so the investment isn't huge. Before purchasing an ebook, the buyer is also allowed to read a sample - often several chapters. The buyer knows what he or she is getting before spending money.
And yet ebook returns happen.
Other electronic downloads are not refundable, such as movies and music. This is to prevent someone from downloading an album or movie, copying it, and then returning the original file.
But an ebook could also be copied and returned. A buyer could also read an entire book and return it.
My question to you, as authors and readers - should ebook returns be allowed?
