Free Newsletter vs Paid Subscription
- Free Newsletter
Newsletters are free; they’re a kind of “free preview” of the article. They include the title and a short description of the article (usually one or two sentences). Once you have registered to the newsletter, you will be able to set the newsletter frequency at your convenience to immediate, daily or weekly. Remember that you need to purchase a subscription (= paid subscription) to read the full article.
- Paid Subscription
You need to purchase a paid subscription to read the articles published on the website after 31 July 2020. You can buy the subscription on the the “subscription page” (= Subscribe Now!) or on any article with a paywall.
For optimal experience, you need to combine both: (1) buy a subscription and (2) add your email to the newsletter distribution list.
How to Join the Free Newsletter?
You need to add your email to the distribution list.
- Look for the following “widget” on the side column of the site.
- Enter your email and click on “Join Newsletter”.
- You will receive an email asking to confirm your subscription to the free newsletter. Please accept it. You may have to look in your spam filters if you don’t find that confirmation email.
How to Change the Email Frequency of the Newsletter?
It’s easy to change the newsletter frequency.
(1) Open any “Bioplastics News” newsletter.
(2) Click on “Manage Subscriptions” at the bottom of the email. PS – The word subscription is used here in the context of the free newsletter.
(3) Click on “Settings“
(4) Under “Email me new posts” you should be able to adapt the “Delivery Frequency” of the free newsletter. You have three options:
- Immediate – receive an email immediately when an article is published
- Daily – 1 email per day with all the published articles of the day.
- Weekly – 1 email per week with all the published articles of that week.
PS – Please note that sometimes there’s an update of the “website” software and this may slightly alter the user experience, design and layout of the above mentionned.
