Delivery and shipment
How soon will I get my first issue?
This can vary between four to six weeks, depending upon the publishing frequency of the magazine and the policy of the publisher.
Why does it take 4 to 6 weeks for getting the first issue of my subscription?
Magazines loose their value with time. A July magazine issue will have little value in say August. So quantity printed is equal to active subscriptions plus estimated requirement from news stands. When you order a subscription, there is nil stock of current issue for new orders, so you have to wait until the next issue goes to press, which is based on publishing frequency, their print cycle and your order date. This process normally takes 4 to 6 weeks and ensures your subscription does not start with an outdated issue.
When will I get my free gift?
Free gifts are sent seperately and don't come with the first issue. Generally the free gifts are shipped by the publishers, between second and fourth month of your subscription activation.
Who will do the shipment of subscription issues?
To ensures prompt and timely delivery during the entire tenure of the subscription, the shipment is directly done by the Seller / Publisher.
