When does my subscription start?

Your subscription will start with the next available issue. The delivery time is based on the frequency of issue.

  • Subscriptions of the printed issue every month take about 4 - 6 weeks.
  • Subscriptions of the printed issue every two months take about 8 - 12 weeks.
  • Subscriptions of the printed issue every three months take about 8 - 12 weeks.
  • Printed issue subscriptions, including the first digital issue as our thank-you to you (AboPlus): immediately.
  • Single issues of the print edition, independent of the frequency of issues: 7 workdays.
  • ePapers (subscriptions and single issues): immediately.

At the publishing house, delivery will be triggered 14 days before an issue is circulated. Should you order later, your subscription will begin with the following issue. Here’s an example: You order a magazine on the 15th of any month. That magazine appears on a monthly basis and the next issue will goes on sale on the 28th of any month. That means, you’ll be receiving the following issue that would go on sale on the 28th of the following month. Thus, you’ll receive your first issue in six (6) weeks.

The subscription is meant as a gift? No problem! During the ordering process, you can state the date you desire, ensure that your gift doesn’t reach the recipient too early. More informations here.

Tip: Keep an eye out for the white banner! Select AboPlus and you’ll receive the magazine’s current issue as an epaper; which cuts your waiting period in half!
