Not all books are available for purchase in Canada.  Look at the details of the book to see if the book you want to purchase can be purchased in Canada.  Example is this book.  Says only available in the US.

Hi

 

I believe you have to have an US Credit Card and a US address.

 

Hope this helps.

Having a Canadian billing address and CC would not preclude a customer from placing an NOOKbook order.  When you create an account on BN.com you can input a Canadian credit card with a Canadian billing address and save them as your defaults.

 

As was mentioned, not all NOOKbooks are available for purchase in Canada.

Re: Nook color Canadian owner having problems buying books

I'm having the same issue with purchasing books on a regular nook; I'm in Canada with a Canadian address. When I look at the product details from the store page in the nook, there are no geographical restrictions listed. Then when I go to make the purchase, an error message pops up telling me I need to have a U.S. or Canadian billing address listed, which I DO. But it still won't work. Cannot figure out what the problem is and I'm very frustrated.

Re: Nook color Canadian owner having problems buying books

  • Other posters have complained that BN wouldn't allow NC purchases from Puerto Rico, even tho the NC docs (?all?) explicitly listed Puerto Rico as one of the U.S. territories from which purchases are definitely allowed.
  • But, after many weeks (?months?), the posters stated that purchases from Puerto Rico were finally working.
  • Perhaps there is a similar problem w/ BN and Canada? Or, in an attempt to properly address these issues, the BN software team inadvertently messed up the (previously) working Canadian situation?
