How to correct incorrectly entered credit card number

I entered my credit card number incorrectly in the Stanza application for a book I purchased at fictionwise. The book will not download, of course, but I also don't find a way to re-enter the information correctly. Is there a way to correct a credit card number entered incorrectly within the Stanza application?



fictionwise and kindle

I searched around and haven't found any topics on this... Like many received a Kindle for Christmas. Prior to this I use and still use, my Itouch Stanza App for books. I have installed Stanza Desktop and then I downloaded a book from Stanza Fictionwise, but it says "Stanza Desktop cannot read this eReader book. How can I share this book with my Kindle, too. Please say I can... I purchased it, I can unlock the code if needed. One FAQ says to open it up in the desktop and export it as a kindle and then USB it to my kindle. No, that don't work... Anyone have a work around.

eReader format support or not for iphone?

The Lexcycle FAQ about Fictionwise has two apparently conflicting answers about support for the eReader format:

Can I read other titles in Fictionwise's eReader format on Stanza?
Yes. Stanza supports all titles in the eReader format...
How can I get my books in the eReader format from my desktop to my iPhone?
Stanza Desktop does not yet support displaying books in the eReader format...

Fictionwise will not let me download a purchased book

I have loaded Stanza on my iPhone. Went to the Fictionwise library, created an account, and made a purchase (Getting Things Done by D. Allen). I received a confirmation and receipt for my purchase via email. I then tried to download the book into Stanza iPhone, but receive an error message: "Catalog Error. Error reading catalog data. Please try again later." I followed that suggestion and have 'tried again later' many times, all with the same result.

Stanza Desktop does not work with books purchase from

Installed Stanza Desktop and then downloaded a book from Stanza Fictionwise, but it says "Stanza Desktop cannot read this eReader book. However, you can share this book with Stanza iPhone/iPod Touch from Stanza Desktop."

The email notification I received regarding my purchase said "You can also download your books to your desktop computer to read using other eReader client software by visiting and clicking the "Bookshelf" link."

I can use the free eReader from to read the Fictionwise book.

What credit card # when using micropay?

I have a book that I just purchased on Fictionwise using MicroPay.

When I download and try to open the book, the DRM manager asks for the credit card that I used to purchase the book, only there was NO credit card used! So how do I unlock the book.

Same potential problem: Fictionwise accepts PayPal payments. What number would be used to unlock that book on my iPhone?
