Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Ebook Download error 2080

I posted this in a differnt area, but I think here is better suited :smileyhappy:


I tried buying an ebook the other day, and I keep getting the error:


"Please verify the default payment method on record in your account. (Download: 2080)"


I have verified that my credit card information is correct, but this error will not go away

(I tried downloading straight from website, and the Nook program for PC - the sample books will download)

Re: Ebook Download error 2080

Your best bet is to work with B&N Customer Service. They can see your account and your e-book(s), and can check things out. All we can do is make guesses.


1-800-THE-BOOK (1-800-843-2665), option 2 for Digital Support.

Re: Ebook Download error 2080

Unfortunately, Nook support can't even figure out how to handle the '2' for Digital Support if someone is calling from an iPhone, so a lot of people are out in the cold. My concern is that they have problems with the nook, with the nook for PC software (I have the same "please verify the default payment method on record in your account (Download: 2080)" problem) and problems even handling a simple call through a PBX -- it's a bit difficult holding out hope that they're going to get any of this stuff right.
