8 Upgrade

You can use Pressbooks for free on private books, but if you do you’ll have a big Pressbooks ad in your ebook, and in PDF you’ll have an ad, as well as “Produced with Pressbooks.com” watermarks[1] throughout your book.

Upgrading in Pressbooks will do a few things for you:

  • Upgrading to either plan will give you the option to make your webbook public.
  • Upgrading to EBOOK Pro will remove Pressbooks ads and watermarks from your ebook files and ebook covers made with our cover generator.
  • Upgrading to PDF+EBOOK Pro will remove Pressbooks ads and watermarks from your ebook and print-on-demand files and ebook and print covers made with our cover generator.
  • It will increase storage space, important if you are making a book with more than a few photos.

Pricing is:

  • $19.99 to remove ads/watermarks in EPUB + option to make webbook public + 25MB of storage
  • $99 to remove ads/watermarks in PDF +¬†option to make webbook public + 250MB of storage

Here’s how you upgrade:

  1. In Pressbooks Admin, click on Upgrade in the Left Menu.
  2. Select the upgrade package you want.
  3. Pay with a valid credit card.

That’s it!
