Which one? For Kindle, purchases are delivered wirelessly, or simply transferred via the usb cable through your (competitor) account. 

 

If you want to load your own (uncopyrighted! :smileyhappy: *)file, plug in via usb and use windows explorer to explore the kindle, then copy and paste them into the folder containing all your ebook files. I can't remember, but on the Kindle I think it's called "documents", anyway, it would contain .azw or .mobi files... pdf's work too, not sure what else is supported though.

Not sure if other brands work the same...
