When Did Amazon Start Demanding That You Verify Your eBooks Before They Get Converted and Sent to Your Kindle?
Amazon’s free conversion service has been one of Kindle’s killer features ever since the Kindle launched in 2007. I have used it countless times over the years, but lately I have found that Amazon is throwing up roadblocks that limit how I use the service.
Earlier today I emailed several ebooks so they could be converted and added to my Kindle account, only to have the process stall when Amazon sent not one but two emails demanding that I confirm that I really wanted Amazon to convert these ebooks.
Have you seen this before? Do you know when it started?
I only started seeing it in late April, but it had been a couple years since I last used the email conversion service, so I might have missed it being phased in.
Is this annoyance widespread, or am I being singled out for some reason?
