Online and in print, we ensure you have the detail you need, when you need it.

Why is it easier to pay by Direct Debit?

Direct debit is a continuous payment method available in the UK and eliminates the need for you to remember to renew your subscription each year. You will be in complete control of your subscription and you have the option to pay annually or quarterly to help spread the cost of your subscription over the year.

How secure are my credit card details if I place my order online?

Yes. All the information you provide is encrypted using the industry standard SSL (secure socket layer) technology.

Can I pay by invoice?

Yes, we can arrange for you to be sent an invoice. Please contact

Can I pay in a currency other than £ Sterling?

We accept cheque payments in most currencies. If paying by credit card, your payment will be processed in UK £ Sterling at a recent rate of exchange – which may therefore be different to the £ Sterling published price. Please contact customer services for other payment queries.

Can I get a team subscription?

Yes. We offer preferential rates for 5+ subscriptions and our corporate membership includes exclusive benefits not available to individual subscribers. Please contact our corporate subscriptions team for details:

How do you acknowledge receipt of my order?

If you place your order online, an email acknowledgement will be sent to you almost immediately after you submit your order. This will confirm the details of the address to which the issues will be sent, your 10 digit subscriber number together with details of when your subscription will start and end. Should you not receive your acknowledgement within 24 hours, please contact customer services.

If you place your order over the phone, via fax, email or post, a written acknowledgement will be sent to you within a few days of receipt of your order. This will include details of your 10 digit subscriber number, when your subscription will start and end, and the address or addresses to which the issues will be sent. Should you not receive your acknowledgement within 10 days, please contact our print subscription customer services.

Can you deliver to an address outside the UK?

Yes. But as the magazine is dispatched from the UK, the subscription price is higher to cover the additional delivery costs. The latest overseas prices can be found on the subscription order form.

When will my first printed magazine arrive?

Your order acknowledgement will confirm details of the first issue you will be sent. This is normally within 14 days of placing your order.
Please note the On the Move subscription package does not include the weekly print magazine.

What do you do with my personal information?

We may also ask you about your profile and interest areas, and whether you are interested in receiving details of other services provided by EMAP Publishing Limited (the publisher of Retail Week) and/or those of third parties which may be of interest to you.
