File Download Format Question
« on: March 28, 2021, 07:20:42 AM »
Why are the file download formats in .zip instead of .PDF or .epub?
I find it difficult to unzip the downloaded file on my device.Also,the sites I want to submit to insist on .epub format.

Zip files are used to save space.

Not sure why you are having problems unzipping files.  What unzip utility are you using? Every system comes with one, but you can always find one online.  I use WinRAR and 7zip.

You said you are having problems unzipping files on your device. Are you using a mobile device, a pc, or a laptop?

Sorry, but why do you need epub format?  I hope you aren't trying to submit plr to sites like Kindle, where it's illegal and can get your account banned.
