It can be incredibly confusing when you search for a book you want in the Audible app for iPhone or iPad, and there's no way to purchase it. This is because you can't purchase audiobooks in the Audible app. You can, however, navigate to the Amazon website in the Safari browser and purchase audiobooks through there.

And now, let's walk through how to purchase Audible audiobooks in the Safari browser on your iPhone or iPad.

Step 1. Launch "Safari" or any other Web browser on your Apple iPhone or iPad, and then navigate to

Step 2. Tap "Sign In" in the upper right corner of the Amazon home screen if you aren't signed in to your Amazon account by default. You'll arrive at a Sign In screen. Enter the username and password associated with your account, and then tap the orange "Sign In" button. You'll be returned to the Amazon home screen, where you'll be signed in to your account.

Step 3. Tap "Departments" in the menu row that appears directly beneath the search bar. The Departments screen appears.

Step 4. Scroll down the screen until you see Books. Tap "Books." A drop-down menu appears beneath Books.

Step 5. Tap "Audible Audiobooks" in the list of options that appear in the drop-down menu. The Audible Audiobooks screen appears.

Step 6. Type the name of the book you're looking for in the search bar that appears toward the top of the Audible Audiobooks screen, and then tap the yellow icon to the right of the search bar that looks like a magnifying glass. A list of search results appears.

Step 7. Tap the name of the audio book that appears in the search results that you want to buy. An information screen for that audio book appears.

Step 8. Scroll down directly beneath the book and select either Buy with 1 Credit or Buy with 1 Click. In this example, I'll choose to buy this audio book with one credit, and will then tap "Buy Now with 1 Credit." You'll be taken to a Start Listening Now page, confirming that you've successfully purchased your desired Audible audiobook. From here, you can download and listen to the audiobook you just purchased through the Audible native app, which is available for free through the Apple App Store.

Congratulations! You now know how to purchase Audible audiobooks through the Safari Web browser on your Apple iPhone or iPad.

  1. Why is this so complicated?!! Thanks for sorting this out for me! Neither the Amazon app or Audible app actually let you purchase. Crazy that you should have to do this in Safari!

    1. It can be a simple 2-3 process on the app.

      Going to website, signing in and having to do all that is more time consuming and annoying than it has to be.

    2. The book I wanted is not available for download so I had to log into my Amazon account (not the Amazon app or the Audible app). Such a pain.

    1. I couldn’t agree more. I would bet that Apple has a restriction in place preventing Amazon/Audible from doing that because it would be in direct competition with Apple trying to sell audiobooks through iTunes.

    1. I think the inability to purchase audiobooks in the app has to do with the number of items Apple lets you sell in your app. It probably doesn’t help that Apple sells audiobooks through iTunes, and they’d probably rather people go there 🙂

  2. Like everyone else has said… THANK YOU, I’ve muddled through downloading books before but can’t ever remember how to do it. Not in the least intuitive. Thanks again!

    1. I remember this being a headache for me to figure out, so I figured I could help other people as well. Glad the video helped. Thanks for watching!

  3. Thanks, this is such a good tip. There’s nothing on the Audible site or Amazon teach us how to listen to the book we purchased! So dumb.

  4. Very nice explanation of how to buy audible books on amazon, it’s bad business how comes amazon haven’t fixed this issue and confusion. Thanks for the video pal!

  5. Wait wait what the heck are credits do i have to buy those cause on literally every ad i’ve ever seen for audible says its completely free..

  6. Thanks for clarifying that you have to go through Safari to purchase.. so dumb you can’t go direct through Amazon Prime Ap or Audible… I thought I was stupid, glad I’m not the only one finding it confusing!

    1. Yeah. I understand why Audible does it, but it’s really confusing for a lot of people. Glad the video helped. Thanks for watching!

  7. It’s a lot easier if you just go onto the audible website on google and buy the books there, then it will download it straight onto your audible app
