YES! Security is very important to us, as it should be.
In fact as we pass you to PayPal to take your payment details, we don’t actually see or store any of those details, BUT better safe than sorry we say, so the entire site is encrypted and protected for your total protection, you should see a ‘padlock’ by your browser bar to indicate the site is using https / SSL encryption.
That means when you login to your account, or register your name and e-mail, we encrypt those with industry standard protection.
The site is also protected by several layers of security protection, to ensure the few personal details we do ask for are locked away safe.
Magazines are a VAT exempt product, so the price you see has no VAT (sales tax) element.
We have started to sell calendars, which are taxable via full rate VAT. Therefore prices shown will include a VAT element if you live within the UK or the EU. Rest of world will exclude VAT / Sales tax, but may be applicable once your order is processed by your countries customs.

One benefit is saving you time! Once you’ve registered, we store both your billing and delivery addresses against your account, saving you type them each time. We do NOT store payment details for extra security.
NEW: We have introduced ‘account funds’ for registered customers. Deposit into your account and we will give you a huge 20% discount on all future purchases where you use your fund balance to pay for the entire purchase. We feel this gives our loyal customers a great money saving.
We aim to ship all magazines same day (but there may be short delays at peak periods). We ship first class royal mail within the UK, so MOST shipments should arrive the following day if ordered before 12 noon, Monday-Friday.
Any orders made after 12 noon on Friday will be posted the following Monday – unless it’s a bank holiday!
Orders in Europe will take 5-10 working days, order for the rest of the World can take up to 21 working days, though often arrive sooner.
NOTE: During the build-up to Christmas posting (1st Nov – 23rd Dec) delivery times may well take longer, this is unfortunately out of our control.
As we work directly on behalf of the publishers, we receive the future schedule for their magazines. We actually are responsible for having the issues physically printed and then distributed for them, so we always know when the issues will be available. Thus we can ensure YOU receive your copy as close to on-sale date as possible, in some cases, possibly early!
As we control the stock, at certain times we will put certain special issues on pre-order, as we KNOW we will be obtaining the stock to be able to meet all orders.
Yes! We are just building stock now, but over time we will collect a large number of hard to find back-issues of our magazines. Unlike shops on the high street we never take magazines off sale (not until we run out of stock anyway!). Just search for a magazine and we will display all back-issues we have in stock.
