This step is required because you were not signed in to your Leanpub account when you completed your purchase.

Please note that if you are signed in to your Leanpub account when you make a purchase, you won't have to go through this confirmation step!

More Information About This Feature

In the past, when someone clicked the button to complete a Leanpub purchase, and they weren't signed in to their Leanpub account, we sent them an email with a "verification code" to complete their purchase.

This meant that in order to complete your purchase, you needed to check your email, copy the code, go back to your web browser, paste in the verification code you copied from the email, and click a link to proceed.

We decided it would be much easier to just let you download your purchases from the browser right away, and at the same time, give you a "magic link" to click in the receipt email we send to you, so you can confirm your purchase in just one step.

Here's what the confirmation link in the email will look like:

Clicking this "magic link" in the receipt email confirms it was really you who made the purchase, and signs you in to your Leanpub account.

"Magic links" like this are becoming more standard on the web; only someone with access to the email address can access the link, just like with the old verification codes.

If you have any questions, or if you discover your "magic link" has expired before you click on it, please email the team at with the details, and we'll be happy to help!

If you have any feedback or questions about this article, please email the Leanpub team about it at!
