Credit for Kobo

Purchase simply without credit cards

More and more people are choosing to read their books digitally on an e-reader, rather than in paper format. People who find reading too strenuous listen to audio-books instead. You can get credit for the Kobo Store easily via the PostFinance App, in e-finance or at Postomats. You can either redeem the credit directly or give it as a gift via a mobile number.
