Buying audiobooks on the audible app is now possible.
The screenshot said
• Add to Library (1 credit)
• Add to Wish List
I use Audible iOS app 3.91 and have some unused credits > but I miss this button.

thanks in advance | 76 comments There us an update. But you have to force it.
Open itunes on your iOS devise.
But still not “purchase w/ credit“ button....

Janice (jamasc) | 958 comments Apple disabled in-app purchases for Audible, Amazon, Kindle, etc some time ago. You have to purchase your content from the website. Then you can download it to your iPhone.

Powder River Rose (powderriverrose) | 129 comments So I have the Shop Audible app for iOS and use it often to purchase books. You can't use the Audible reading app to purchase but you can browse for more titles.

If I want to see the specials I use my iPad or Mac to go to the website. | 76 comments

They changed it.

But it doesnt seem to work. | 76 comments Can I buy audiobooks in the app?
in the FAQ still says not possible.
But the link obviously tells that it works...

Joy (audioaddict1234) | -4 comments I just saw this today and was able to get my 2 free September originals through the app. It says I can use my credits but there is not a book I need right now so I haven’t tried.
