Why don’t you supply a telephone number for support? Rather than submit a support ticket, why can’t I call you?
pbntime.com has thousands of customers a day from almost every country in the world. Although thankfully support is only required by the smallest fraction of our users, the support issues cover a wide range of subjects from DRM and licencing, sales and tax, browser issues, file issues, and device support for hundreds of different ebook readers.
As much as we would like to, it is impossible for us to supply phone support 24/7 that could cover all the needed expertise in all these areas. The support ticketing system is the most efficient way for us to track, manage, and answer your queries, that ensures you receive the help you require within a reasonable timeframe. We aim to answer all support queries within 24 hours.
