- First month is free
- Large selection
- In depth information about each book
We like that AudiobookStore.com waves the first month’s membership fee. On top of that, they let you buy your first audiobook for $3.95. After that, they claim that 90% of their books are $12.95 or below.
AudiobookStore.com has a large selection of content to go through – over 40,000 titles. Many of these titles are popular, best-seller books that people want to listen to.
We also like all the information AudiobookStore.com shares about each book we click on. From their site, you can see a description of the book, other titles by the author, reviews, and suggested audiobooks.
- Lack of transparency
- Can be expensive
- Limited language options
Even though AudiobookStore claims that a majority of their books cost under $13 for their members, they don’t actually show this right off the bat. Every time you click on a book without becoming a member, they show you the nonmember price, and encourage you to sign up for an account and get the book for $3.95. Once you have an initial book in your cart, you can see the membership price of any additional books you add.
Even though it’s nice to see the nonmember price, people should be able to see how much books cost before they join the site. In general, we wish they were more transparent.
The site has a membership fee and a price per book. When you calculate the price of listening to one or two books on AudiobookStore.com at the $12.95 price (plus $3.95 for membership fees), it’s more expensive than contemporary prices. However, if you buy more than one book each month, or if you choose books that are priced lower, you will end up paying the same amount or less than other sites.
In summary, here are a few things to remember:
- They have a smaller selection than many of their competitors
- You’ll want to double check the price of what books will be before purchase
- They only have books available in 2 languages
- They offer no free book, unlike several of their competitors

AudiobookStore.com is not very upfront about their prices. Membership is $3.95 per month. After that, you pay per book. They claim that 90% of their books cost $12.95 or under, but fail to show this on their website.
The AudiobookStore.com app has 4.3 / 5 stars on Google Play, but there are only 3 reviews. The iOS app currently has no reviews.
The AudiobookStore.com website has its pros and cons. One good thing they do is provide a lot of information on each audiobook. Audiobooks come with long descriptions and recommend books. We also like the number of ways you can search for audiobooks.
However, there isn’t a lot of information about the company on their website and it’s hard to tell what the actual prices of books are once you become a member. This lack of transparency leads us to give AudiobookStore.com a 5/10 for site usability.
