How to Download Documents from Scribd for free 2018 – 100% Working

Everyone is aware of  Scribd, which is the world’s largest digital library of all kinds of written books as PDF mostly. Scribd consists of nearly 40 million documents posted by their users. On Scribd, New and old authors publish or sell their works and readers can browse through the pages and find the appropriate one for their needs. It is essentially a paid service and hence even if it lets you view a certain amount of documents for Free, you can’t download them unless you upgrade to a paid membership. With a small subscription rate, Scribd readers can view and read all such documents from their favorite platforms like Android, iOS, and Windows.

With the free membership, you can view a limited number of documents in Scribd’s database. You need a Scribd downloader in order to get the files you want for free. In this blog post, you are going to learn how to download unlimited files from Scribd for free. You don’t even have to create an account with Scribd to download most of the documents with this simple trick explained here.

This is another method that will let you download desired documents and files from Scribd for free. You don’t even have to log in using your Facebook account or Sign up for a new account or buy a paid membership, nor upload any document to Scribd. You just need Mozilla Firefox Web Browser for this task.

  1. Go to this link and download the Firefox
  2. Then add Greasemonkey add-on or Tampermonkey ( works on Google Chrome/Safari/UC Browser/Opera and Firefox) to your browser. Click download and it will install automaticallyGreasemonkey

  4. Install it within Greasemonkey
  5. Finally, Go to any document you want to download from Scribd and click on download. This custom script will automatically bypass Scribd’s payment page and give you the option to download your document.

This works!

UPDATE: This guide is still 100% Working and you can download any document from Scribd for free. BOOKS CAN’T BE DOWNLOADED.

Method 4. Using Command Prompt or Terminal in PC and Mac

This is a bit tricky method but if you follow our instructions as mentioned step by step, you will find it easy. However, please note that this may be deprecated with time since Scribd updates their websites and patches vulnerabilities frequently.

So if that does not work, don’t worry, we have a few other options that I have discuses below.

Step 1. Download and install Python 3.5

Installing Python setup fro Scribd document downloader

Step 2. Open command prompt and type following command

set PATH=%PATH%;C:\Users\ravi.singh\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36\Scripts
set PATH=%PATH%;C:\Users\ravi.singh\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36

Step 3. After setting the environment variables, we need to check if python and pip are working.

Step 4. Open a new Command Prompt window and type in command prompt pip and press Enter. If see output with commands, pip is working

Step 5. Now type pip install Scribd-dl and press Enter. Let it install the python package

Download scribd document free with Windows Command Prompt

Step 6. Now go to Scribd and browse the document you want to download. Copy the URL to the document and paste the following command

scribd-dl https://www.scribd.com/document/90403141/Social-Media-Strategy

Downloading Scribd documents with Windows Command Prompt free

Replace the URL with your document URL and press Enter. Wait for a while till it downloads the file. Then browse the directory where cmd was running and access the downloaded Scribd document.

Method 5. Get up to 2-Month Scribd Subscription for Free

The trial subscription entitles you to use the Scribd platform as a paid member. After getting a free trial subscription, you can download the required documents and up to 3 books in one month.

30 daya or 1-month free subscription for Scribd free Document download

All you have to do is, sign up either on their website or Android /iOS app and start your free 30-day trial.

How to get 2-Month FREE Scribd Subscription

We recently found that Scribd with Samsung is giving a 2 month extended trial instead of just 1-month. That is insane! There’s no other way currently to get 2-month free Scribd trial. Samsung bears the cost for an extra one-month subscription but you must own a Samsung Galaxy device. If any of your friend or relative owns a galaxy device, take their help and get access to your favorite book or documents with just a few taps.

  1. Open Galaxy Apps in your Samsung Galaxy device
  2. Search Scribd and install Scribd for Samsung appdownload scribd for samsung for 60 day trial
  3. Sign in and start your 60-day free trial. Access your favorite books and documents for limitless reading completely FREE

Method 6. Using Scribd Downloader

If you reached here, it means either you have not tried any method yet or trying to download a book which is impossible for now. Read more on How to download Books from Scribd post I recently posted. One more possibility is that you are looking for the easiest way to download the required document from the Scribd repository.

However, when you search for Scribd Downloader, you will rarely find a working Scribd downloader website. The Scribd updates their websites with new lines of code occasionally after which these Scribd downloader websites fail to download the Scribd documents via URL. However, some sites like DLscrib.com—an amazing web app—lets you download required Scribd documents with just a few clicks. Therefore, go ahead and try the Scribd downloader. Also, let us know if that worked or which one worked for you.
