How do I upload / share an ePub file?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me figure out how to upload an ePub file for users to download?  I was able to easily upload a PDF for users to open and download, but when I try to do the same with an ePub, the file upload window won't display the epub file for me.  I'm hope to avoid having to host the file on another site if possible.

UPDATE:

I ended up zipping the file as a work around, but open to any other suggestions if folks have had success with other approaches

If you are trying to upload the file so that users can freely download it from a link or button on your page, you should be able to upload it as described in Uploading and managing files but it must be 20MB or smaller.

Here's a screenshot of an epub file that I just uploaded:

If your file is under 20MB and this isn't working as expected for you, please reach out directly to Squarespace Customer Care for assistance. 

If you are trying to upload the file to be sold as a digital product, you can upload any file type upto 300MB, including epub.
