DELIVERY

  • Can I transfer my subscription to a different magazine?
    Unfortunately isubscribe is not able to transfer subscriptions to different titles. Once the magazine publisher has loaded your subscription order, it may be possible for them to transfer to another title by the same publisher- this is best to check with them.
  • How do I change my address or contact details?
    You can log into your account on the isubscribe site here. In your ‘My Account’ area you will find a complete list of all your current and past subscriptions. Here you can manage all of your information and purchases and change your details accordingly. Please note that as the delivery labels are often printed a number of weeks in advance, the next issue of your magazine may still go to the old address.
  • How long do I have to wait for my first issue to arrive?
    Your subscription will usually start with the next available issue and will not normally be the current issue that is available in shops. The industry standard guidelines for delivery are as follows:
    For weeklies; between 2-4 weeks for the first issue to arrive.
    For monthlies; between 4-6 weeks, however some publishers, including TI Media and National Geographic have longer lead times and may take a few weeks longer than this.
    For bi-monthlies; between 8-10 weeks.
    For special offers and free gifts please allow up to six weeks for delivery. Free gifts are sent separately and will not arrive with the first issue of your subscription.
    For international orders; between 10-12 weeks.
    Subscription box delivery is noted on the delivery tab of the box page.
    For digital purchases, your subscription will commence with the current issue. Please activate your account with Zinio to access the first issue.
  • My magazine hasn't arrived, what do I do?
    If your magazine hasn’t arrived or you think it may be running late please contact the magazine publishers who will be able to help you. You can find all their contact details on your confirmation email, or in your My Account area on our site. You can log in here where you will find a complete list of all your current and past subscriptions and the publisher contact information for each.
  • What issue will my subscription start with? Can I specify which issue it will be?
    Your subscription will usually start with the next available issue and will not normally be the current issue that is available in the shops now. The delivery estimates above are intended as a guide. During mid October - December, you can request for a gift subscription to start after 25th December, so as not to spoil the surprise!
  • Where are the magazines sent from?
    Each publisher is responsible for the fulfilment of the magazines or newspapers, and have been doing so for many years. In most instances, your subscription copies will arrive a few days before the magazine goes on sale in the shops.

iCARDS, GIFT VOUCHERS & GIFT CARDS

  • How do I create an iCARD?
    When purchasing a subscription, select 'Yes’ when asked ‘Is this subscription a gift?’ on the delivery address page. You will then be presented with the steps to create your iCARD, including a personal message.
  • I have received a gift card or gift voucher, how do I use it?
    Lucky you! On the gift card or voucher itself there will be a long number. You will need to enter this long number during the checkout process, in the step after you have entered the delivery information. If the subscription amount exceeds the gift card or voucher value, you will need to enter in your payment details in the next step to cover the remaining amount.

    Please note that gift cards and vouchers cannot be used to purchase direct debit payment option subscriptions.

FREE GIFTS & PROMOTIONAL ITEMS

  • My subscription includes a free gift. Who will it be sent to and when?
    In most cases the free gift will be sent to the gift giver rather than the recipient and can take up to 6 weeks to arrive. The gift will arrive separately from the first issue, so don’t worry if it hasn’t arrived at the same time.

    If your gift hasn’t arrived within 6 weeks you can contact the magazine publishers who will be able to help you. You can find all their contact details on your confirmation email, or in your My Account area on our site. You can log in here where you will find a complete list of all your current and past subscriptions and the publisher contact information for each.
  • Will my subscription include promotional items packaged with the magazine?
