Q. How do I place an order?

A. Ordering is easy at Magazines.com! Simply use the search box at the top of the screen to search for a product or keyword, or browse through thousands of magazines, journals and more by category or price range. Or, visit our Gift Center for easy shopping by occasion or recipient. When you have all of the items that you would like to purchase in your cart, click 'Checkout' to begin the checkout process. At checkout, we will give you the opportunity to sign-in to your Magazines.com Account to access your address book and saved payment methods. If you don't already have an account, you may also check out as a guest, with the option to create an account at the end of your purchase. The first step of checkout will ask for your shipping address. If you have multiple items going to multiple addresses, please choose the radio button at the top of the screen that says 'Ship to multiple addresses'. This will allow you to choose a different delivery address for each item. If any of the items in your order are a gift, please select the box that says, 'Check here if this item is a gift'. When the box is selected you will have the option of sending the recipient a free postcard letting them know the gift is on the way! The next step of checkout requests your payment information. Here, simply enter your billing address and payment information. Any promotional codes or gift cards may also be added on this step. When all required information has been entered, click 'Continue to Review'. On this final step of checkout you will have the opportunity to review your order. Upon verifying that all information is correct, click 'Place Your Order' to submit your order. You'll receive a confirmation email to the email address provided within the hour.

You may also place an order by calling our Customer Care team at 1-800-MAGAZINES (800-624-2946).
