All orders are pre-paid to the publishers and processed promptly so as to ensure that the subscription begins as quickly as possible. MagazineCity differs from other online subscription services in that we never offer free trials or come ons. We negotiate with publishers for the lowest rates available by pledging that we will only process legitimate, pre-paid orders from consumers who are sure of what they want when placing orders. This saves time and money for all parties. It seems to work well. Unlike some of our competitors who cancel as much as 50% of all the orders they process, fewer than 1/10th of 1% of all MagazineCity customers have requested refunds or cancellation since our online launch in 1998.
