Subscription orders

Subscription orders can be placed on various TSO products, ensuring that you always receive the latest issue of the publication of your choice.

There are two main methods of placing subscriptions orders on the Online Bookshop.

Subscriptions area

The Subscriptions area features key TSO subscription titles. For easy browsing, subscriptions are broken down into categories, with the option to purchase any of the titles listed by clicking on the 'Add to Basket' button.

  1. To access the Subscriptions category, simply click here.
  2. Once you have located the subscription you wish to purchase click on the 'Add to Basket' button
  3. Select whether you wish your subscription to begin with the current issue of the publication or the next issue, by clicking on the circle next to your choice then click on the 'Continue' button.
  4. Details of the subscription you have selected to receive will be displayed. To add the subscription to your shopping basket click on the 'Continue' button.
  5. To complete your purchase click on the 'Proceed to Checkout' button (if you have not already logged in) and enter your username and password when prompted. The full details of your shopping basket will then be displayed.
  6. In cases where VAT is applicable (for example, on software purchases within the EU) this will also be calculated and displayed.
  7. Check the delivery address is correct. If you wish to change the delivery address click on the 'Change Address' button. See 'Delivery Addresses' in 'Managing Your Account'.
  8. When you are happy with your details choose the method of payment you wish to use at the foot of the basket and click on the relevant button.
