If you'd like to ensure that your purchased eBooks are delivered directly to your Kindle, follow the steps below (you only need to do this once. If you've done this before, download the Smashwords version and it will be delivered to your kindle)
1.Add this email address ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) to your approved emails list for your Kindle’s email address. Also, copy or write down your Kindle’s email address for later use. If you need helping finding your Kindle email address and approved sender’s list, see steps below.
2.Create a free Smashwords account if you don’t have one and follow this link https://www.smashwords.com/edelivery/info and scroll down and click on Manage eDelivery
3.Underneath Destination, tick the box next to Deliver to my email address
4.Change the format from epub to mobi, by clicking the ‘Change Formats’ button. Uncheck epub and check mobi, then press ‘Change Formats’ button
5.Next, the delivery address needs to be changed. Click the ‘Change Address’ button.
6.Your ‘default’ address will be there. Remove it and paste or type in your Kindle email address.
7.When you have changed it, click the green ‘Change Address’ button.
•The format is what you changed it to be (.mobi)
•The address has been changed to your Kindle’s email address
•That ‘Deliver to my email address…’ is ticked
•That ‘Deliver to by Default’ is also ticked
•Then, when you next buy a book (or a free one) on Smashwords, click ‘Send to Email’. As you have set up the format you require you can ignore the download options (it will send a mobi file to your Kindle).
If you wait a few moments after clicking the ‘Send to Email’ button you should see confirmation that it has been sent… and the format it was sent in (should be mobi).
Once you’ve done this, purchase the book from Smashwords and enjoy it on your Kindle!
