@Rufusking1 Good questions! I'm happy to answer them.
We license the rights for a fixed number of years, with the possibility of renew of the license. Not gonna say how many years but it's more than 1 and less than 10.
We've licensed the first 2 or 3 volumes of each series, and we will add on future volumes as we go. Although we don't own the rights to all future volumes there is an expectation that we will continue to pay for the licensed for the rest of the series, no matter how long it might be... eventually, anyway.
I actually need to go and license volume 2-3 of saihate no paladin for example, since when I got that license only volume 1 had been released. But adding on extra volumes doesn't require a new contract, just a new addition to an existing contract.
@WolfeReader Right: That's something I am already considering while implementing that functionality.
I'll limit the number of credits that could be purchased all at once (maybe like 1, 3, 5), and require reinputting the code as you pointed out.
Previously that's not needed but once you open up "theoretically" unlimited charges it can be abused. It's not so much protection for the consumer either, it's protection for US! If the bank/credit card issues a chargeback for a huge fraudulent purchase amount, we're on the hook for the processing fees both ways, after all.
Stripe has been pretty good about blocking sketchy cards so far... One guy from a south asian country tried to sign up using 40 different debit card numbers (they were all blocked). I kind of appreciate the clear passion for light novels the person must have had, but please, don't pay with stolen CC#s....
Again like my previous post, I'm not to sure about this one, it just seemed weird to me. Sorry in advance if it's supposed to be like that.
The 4th paragraph before the chapter ends.
"First her machete knock away its spear..."
Should "knock" be "knocked"?
@Ahmed-Ussama If you are not a J-Novel Club Member then you don't have access to reading the latest released parts, only the free preview parts, the same as someone before you logged in.
The only benefit on the app to having a free account is that it does save your reading progress.
You can sign up for membership at j-novel.club/subscribe on the main website!
@Sam-Pinansky when do you expect to release the app update? I don't care very much about the website as I mainly use my pc for games and watching anime, and the cellphone for reading stuff as I can read anything on the go. If you have implemented the page system it would alredy be worth the wait.
@Sam-Pinansky Great! Can't wait to read it during Christmas vacation. I know you're busy translating and stuff but thanks for helping me nonetheless.
PS. You can also search the title you want to buy by using the search bar on your iTunes or iBooks app. (How stupid of me)
