Notes for Retailers migrating from V2 to eBookbase V3
With eBookbase V3, it is no longer required to provide the customer's registered PIDs in the call to eBookbase. Mobi Reader Desktop will automatically handle the registration of the user's devices when opening the ebook in the Reader, and user PIDs are stored within eBookbase. However since in eBookbase V2 users had to register their PID manually on your site, you probably already manage user accounts in your site database, where you store user PIDs. In this case it is recommended to migrate the already registered PIDs to eBookbase, using the eBookbase User Device Management web services. Existing PIDs should be migrated only if the user does not already have devices registered at eBookbase (use the GetDeviceList web service to check this).
The User Online Library web service returns all the customer eBookbase downloads, including transactions made with eBookbase V2.
