About this magazine

A recurring payment is a quick and easy way to subscribe! This is where the payment recurs automatically at the specified period and is usually the cheapest option! Recurring payments may be offered both annually or for shorter periods such as every 3 months (quarterly), although the minimum term for all recurring subscription offers is 12 months.
A one-off payment is where the full payment of the period stated is taken immediately at the time of purchase and no further payments are taken. One-off payments are usually for a minimum period of 12 months. If the offer period is different, then the number of issues will be displayed under Payment and Duration within the offer.
