– JaimBateman

[five stars]
After purchasing another plugin for flipbooks that was a pain to work with I was already pretty doubting if I should purchase this. However it turns out to be good, easy and fast in use!! It can work with large PDF’s en you not have to buy another seperate plugin for that purpose. Furthermore it has a great overview over the books and last but not least my PDF’s are shown in a great way on the site.

Realistic 3D Flipbook

Real3D Flipbook uses WebGL to create ultra realistic 3D flipbooks with page bending, shiny pages, lights and shadows.

3D & 2D Flipbook


Ultra fast and lightweight flipbook made with CSS3, without use of WebGL. If your priority is fast page loding and high performance then CSS flipbook is the best option.

Swipe Book


Touch friendly swipe mode can be used only on mobile or as default viewer. Swipe mode displays documents with horizontal swipe instead of flip, which is more natural on mobile devices. Swipe mode detects screen size and orientation to display single page or double page layout.

Optimized for Mobile


Real3D flipbook works well on all platforms – desktop & mobile. The default WebGL mode offers realistic 3D page flip animations with page bending, lights and shadows. This mode is supported on desktop browsers. There is alternative CSS3D mode that uses only CSS3 animations. There is also the Single page mode that can be used as default or only on mobile devices.

Customize UI

Real3D Flipbook fits perfectly in any theme because you can customize the user interface completely. You can change menu colors, button colors, shape, size, border, shadows and hide buttons you don’t need.
Each menu button can be positioned left, right or center, top or bottom. Top and bottom menu bars can be full width, centered or transparent. Buttons on transparent menu bar can have different design then regular buttons. Order of buttons is customizable. Choose from 3 predefined skins and 4 predefined UI layouts. Choose between Font Awesome and Material icons sets. Use advanced UI options to further customize everything.

Customizable Flipbooks

Create flipbook that fits your content perfectly by customizing anything from page flip speed, page flip sound, papar thickness, camera angle, lights, page shininess, page metalness, zoom levels end much more.

Optimized for mobile. Separate options for mobile. Support for dynamic HTML content on pages. Comes with multiple view modes and automatic fallbacks. It is a mature product that offers the best reading experience on all platforms and devices. All future updates are free. Source files and documentation included.

Easy to use

Creating flipbooks is fast and easy, just upload your PDF or images and insert the shortcode into your post or page.
Many settings can be changed via shortcode parameters. Single shortcode can be used to display multiple PDF-s. Easy move to another server with export / import.

Flipbook from PDF

Display PDF-s directly in your website! User can view your PDF-s without downloading them, and without leaving your site. PDF pages are rendered one by one, so user can start reading the PDF before document is fully loaded. Supports internal and external links. All links inside the PDF will automatically work inside the flipbook. Supports text selection and text search with keyword highlighting.

Flipbook from images

You can create flipbook also from images. Images can be landscape or portrait, single page or double page with cover as single page.

Customize flipbooks

Create flipbook that fits your content perfectly by customizing anything from page flip speed, page flip sound, papar thickness, camera angle, lights, page shininess, page metalness, zoom levels end much more.


Lightbox (fullscreen overlay)

With lightbox mode you can put a text link or an image link anywhere on your site and by clicking on a link the flipbook will be opened in a lightbox. This way you can have multiple books / magazines / brochures on the same page.

Responsive (boxed)

Responsive mode creates a flipbook with optional size that can be put anywhere inside a page or post.


With Fullscreen mode the flipbook will cover the entire page, with option to be below the page navigation.


Page Editor Addon

Real3D FlipBook & PDF Viewer WordPress Plugin - 1

Page Editor Addon enables you to add links, videos, sounds and embed codes to flipbook page. Each element is draggable and resizable so you can easily position the elements. This addon also enables live preview of page HTML content.

Bookshelf Addon


Bookshelf addon enables you to create responsive fully customizable shelves for Real3D Flipbooks. Shelf is highly customizable – you can choose metal, wood or glass shelf or use your own custom shelf image. It can also be used to create a grid with flipbook covers (without a shelf). You can also customize cover size, cover shadow, shelf background color, cover align, margin and padding.

WooCommerce Addon

WooCommerce addon enables you to embed flipbook easily on your WooCommerce single product page. Flipbook will be opened in lightbox when clicked on product image. There is option to show flipbook only for purchased product or active subscription. There is also option to show different flipbook for non purchased product.

WPBakery Page Builder Addon

Integrate Real3D Flipbook with Visual composer using Real3D Flipbook for WPBakery Page Builder (formerly Visual Composer) Addon enables you to add / edit flipbooks as Visual composer elements.

Elementor Addon

Integrate Real3D Flipbook with Elementor using Real3D Flipbook for Elementor Addon Addon enables you to add / edit flipbooks inside Elementor with dedicated element.

PDF Tools Addon

PDF Tools for Real3D FlipBook adds functionality to export PDF to JPG and JSON and convert PDF flipbook to JPG Flipbook or create new JPG Flipbooks directly from PDF.

Flipbooks generated with PDF Tools will have PDF text layer and PDF links working, but they will load faster than PDF Flipbooks because pages are loaded directly from the server, so there is no need to load PDF and process it on runtime. Also there is no need to load PDF.js scripts.

Once you have converted PDF to JPG Flipbook there is no need to keep PDF on the server, which is the only true protection for your PDF file.

Addon Bundle

Real3D FlipBook Addon Bundle is a pack that contains all 6 addons

for only $39


Interactive content inside flipbook

You can add any HTML content to flipbook pages. You can create interactive pages with links, buttons, videos, music players, iframes or anything that is possible with html css and javasctipt. Create video albums, portfolio books with interactive pages, magazines with links, videos and music…

Table of content

Create custom multi-level table of content. Supports also PDF outline (table of content embedded in PDF file).

Unlimited flipbooks

You can create unlimited number of books that can be placed anywhere on your website.

Managing flipbooks

You can edit, duplicate and delete books from your library. You can also export all books to JSON. Duplicate function allows you to create template flipbooks so you can fast create new flipbooks by duplicating the template.

Shortcode parameters

Shortcode supports number of different parameters for even easier use. Use same shortcode to display different PDF-s.

Single page view

Flipbook layout can be changed based on the device type. Besides the standard double page view, there is a single page view that can be used either on mobile devices or both on desktop and mobile. Single page view offers better reading experience on smaller screens but still keeps the 3D flipping effect and shadows.

Right to left mode

Right to left flipbook for eastern countries. Flipbook starts from the right and pages are in reverse order.

Deep linking

Link to specific page from the URL, for example open book at page 2
