Thank you all for your feedback on this issue. Is this primarily an issue only with upgrades or also with autopurchases? I’d like to best understand the scope of the problem, and look forward to all additional feedback from those affected. Keep those great ideas and thoughts coming!Zac Holly supported this idea ·Zac Holly commented
I agree that this would be a useful optional setting, and it would actually resolve a couple of other issues we had:
1. That sometimes the NL and UU price are the same. When we have a 3U copy that autoupgrades, we will end up with a NL copy. We would of course prefer to have the UU copy in these cases where the price is the same.
2. In cases where the UU copy is DRM-free, we would usually like to autoupgrade from a 3U copy straight to a UU copy.
I guess, if a UU copy is significantly more expensive than a NL and the UU copy isn't DRM-free, we might prefer to go from a 3U>NL, but I'm sure we could survive with a UU.
Also, if a UU is not available, we would still prefer to go from 3U>NL, though I think it would be rare that an ebook would be available in NL and not UU.
