What are eBooks and how can I use them?

eBooks are digital book editions that you get as PDF files. To read them, you need Acrobat reader or a similar programme suitable for PDF. After purchase, you can download the eBooks from your customer account and read them independently of the customer account on your device of choice at any time. Once you have downloaded the eBook and saved it on your computer, you can read it without any time restrictions. The download link in your Elopage account is available to them for up to one year after purchase.

Are there also print editions of the eBooks?

In our Elopage shop we can only offer digital products such as eBooks. However, there is also a printed edition of some of the books in our range. In this case, you will find a link on the product page at colll.org (not at Elopage!) to a sales partner through whom you can obtain the print edition. Payment, invoicing and shipping are then handled completely by this partner.

Can I create a company account that can be used by multiple people?

This is not provided at Elopage.

It might work if you buy non-personalized products like e-books or courses without a certificate. But most of our products are online courses for which you get a personal certificate. This certificate can be issued only in the name of the account holder. It is better if each interested employee of a company creates his own customer account - with his own email address each, because at Elopage each email address can be used only once - it serves to identify the customer.. The company address can then always be specified as the billing address.

Where can I find my products purchased in the COLLL store?

You can find all your purchases in your Elopage customer account. On the https://elopage.com/users/sign_in page, enter the email address you used to make the purchases and the password you set when you first logged in to the customer account. After that you will see all your purchases under the tab "COLLL". You can get to the individual products by clicking on the respective product graphic.

If you have never logged into your customer account before, please read "Why do I need a customer account and how can I create one?".

Can I delete my customer account?

Deleting the customer account is not possible. All transactions of purchases must be archived for tax reasons.

Why can't I download the videos in the online courses I purchased?

The videos are stored in a streaming format on Vimeo and have copy protection so they can only be played on the elopage.com site.

How do I get the invoices for my purchases?

Unfortunately, the bills are somewhat hidden at Elopage. You can find it in your Elopage buyer account when you call up the overview of your purchases in the navigation (-> Payments -> Orders). In the overview you will find three points on the far right of each line. If you click on it, a link will appear, which will take you to the details page of the purchase.

On the detail page there is a blue arrow next to the heading Payment overview, with which you can open a table. There you will find the invoice number in the column on the far right. If you click on it, depending on the browser settings, the invoice opens as a PDF file in a new browser window or a download link to the PDF file.

It is advisable to always download the invoice and print it from a PDF reader, because when printing directly from the browser window, the display can sometimes be shifted somewhat.

No invoice will be issued for free products.

I have downioaded en ebook to my local computer but cannot open it.

The e-books are saved in PDF format and require a current reader that can open PDF files. We recommend the latest version of Acrobat Reader, which you can download free of charge from Adobe.

Another possibility is that an error has occurred during the download and your file has arrived defective. Please try the download again.

If everything does not help please contact support (support@colll.org).

My email address has changed. How can I enter the new address in my user account?

The email address is the basis for your identification at the user account and therefore should not be changed if possible. If a change is necessary you can do this via the settings in your customer account (Settings -> Profile -> email). The next time you log in to your account, you will need to log in with the new email address.

What can I do if the system does not accept my payment?

When paying via PayPal, Visa card or Sofort├╝berweisung, a payment may not be accepted. This is not due to the online shop. The payments are processed by external service providers. The connection may be faulty or the conditions for secure payment may not currently exist.

Please do not try to use the same payment method again and again. If there is a malfunction, it may take a while to resolve it.

Please also check:

  • Do you have a daily limit for the payment method used (PayPal, Visa, Sofort├╝berweisung) that may have been exceeded?
  • Does your account have sufficient funds?
  • Have you used your credit card to buy similar products several times in a row? In this case, credit card companies sometimes block payment because they suspect abuse.

If you have any problems with the payment, please contact the support (support@colll.org).

Please note that we cannot make any changes to the payment system bookings.

What do I need a customer account for and how can I create one?
