I have not received all my issues, how can I check if they have been sent?
We are sorry to hear that you have not received all your issues. We aim to send deliveries out every 30 days and in some cases more frequently. You can view your account online and check to see if we have sent them out, please this link. If you have not yet registered, it only takes a few minutes. If you have recently subscribed please allow up to 14 days for the delivery of your first parcel.
Some parcels that we send out which include gifts, magazine binders, or DVD storage boxes may be too large to fit through letter boxes. If you have an arrangement with your postman to leave large items in a secure place i.e. the side of your house or in a porch, please check there before contacting us.
If Royal Mail have attempted to deliver a large parcel and there is nowhere suitable to leave it, they may have returned it to your local sorting office. Please check to see if they have left a "We tried to deliver" card which should have your sorting office contact details on it. If you have not received a card, it is still worth contacting the sorting office as Royal Mail may not have left a card.
If you have checked your account online and the issue you are waiting for does not show, we may currently be out of stock on this particular item.
