Issuu is an electronic publishing platform.

2023 free account limits change

On 2022-12-20, Issuu changed their pricing page to reduce the limits of free accounts from 500 pages and 100 MB[1] per upload to 50 pages and 50 MB[2]. Sometime later, they sent an email to existing users that the new limits would be enforced from 2023-02-23, rendering existing publications exceeding the limits inaccessible to readers[3]:

This notice is to inform you that we are changing the features of our free Basic plan, which will start being enforced on February 23, 2023, as follows:

  • File size limit: Individual publications will be limited to 50 MB
  • Page limit: Individual publications will be limited to 50 pages
  • Availability: Publications can no longer be unlisted

Starting on February 23, 2023, any existing publication that exceeds any of the above limits will continue to be hosted on Issuu but not accessible to readers.

 # "pdfUrl": ""
 # NOTE: the covers are not pdfs, they are jpegs, and have null pdfUrl fields:
 # "jpgUrl": ""
 # Request Document ID for a given username and document name:
  # "documentId":"141007194746-7819f25a55f483150eb9462df2f4be34",
 # Better s3 bucket URL for full original PDFs based on document ID
