We are often asked why an account is required before you can order from us. Our requirements are subtlety different from many online stores in that we must have a single account per REVIEW subscriber so we can distribute the magazine, issue reminders, etc. We also need to be able to calculate shipping costs for books and back issues. Many of the older REVIEW accounts did not have email addresses, or they have not been activated for online access.
By asking you to contact us first we can find your account record (or create one if none exists), add your email address and send you an invite to activate your account - all much simpler and keeps our subscriber database clean.
Once you have an account you will be able to view your subscription status and any orders you placed since we went live (Oct 2015).
