#3. How do I access the research review?

If you subscribed using Patreon (after October 219), then you can simply navigate to your patron-only feed and search for the most recent post that contains an S&C Research Review Plus tier benefit.

If you originally subscribed by email (before October 2019), using a PayPal button, then a download link and a password has been sent to you each month by email. This email is sent out at 8am GMT on the first day of the month. Click on the download link in the email, and then enter the password to access the PDF of the research review.


#4. If I originally subscribed by email, can I change the email address that receives the research review?

Yes you can.

The download links to the research review are sent to the email address that you subscribed with. When you first subscribe, this is your primary email address on PayPal.

Once you have accessed your PayPal primary email address, you can change your email address. To do this, find one of the emails we have sent you.

Look at the bottom of that email for the AWeber "change subscriber options" link. Clicking on this link will take you to AWeber, where you can alter the email address that we send your monthly edition to.

If you have lost access to your PayPal primary email address, please just let us know what's happened through our contact form and we will amend your address on our mailing system. We recommend that you update your address on PayPal too (scroll down to the next section), but we cannot fix this for you.


#5. If I originally subscribed by email, what happens if I lose access my PayPal primary email address?

Here is how you amend your PayPal primary email address:

  • Log in to PayPal
  • Go to "My Account" (which it should open at)
  • Select "Profile" from the menu bar

Depending on your version of PayPal, you will either:

1. Find your email addresses displayed in a section on the next page. Here you can add new addresses (using the "+") and select "edit" beside your preferred address to set it as your primary address

or

2. Follow the steps below:

  • Select "My details" from the drop-down menu under this.
  • To the right of "Email" click "Update"
  • If your new address is already listed, skip the next two steps, otherwise continue.
  • At the bottom right corner of the new screen click on "add"
  • Enter the new email address and click on "Save"
  • Back at the list of email addresses, select the radio button next to the new email address and click on "Confirm"
  • You should now be sent an email, so that you can complete a verification process. Follow all the steps as directed by PayPal.
  • Once your new email address is confirmed, select the radio button next to it and click on "Make primary"

If you had already subscribed before discovering that you needed to change your PayPal primary address, please:

  1. Update your PayPal primary address
  2. Let us know what's happened through our contact form (remember to tell us that you've now updated your email address on PayPal too!)

We will update our mailing systems and send you the current month edition that you missed.

 
#6. If I originally subscribed by email, how can I change my PayPal credit/debit card?

You can add a new bank account or credit/debit card to your PayPal account by following these steps:

  • Log in to your PayPal account
  • Click "Profile" near the top of the page
  • Click "My money"
  • Click "Update" in the Bank accounts or Credit/Debit Cards section
  • Click "Add / Add a card"
  • Complete the form, following any additional instructions you are sent by PayPal to verify your account/card.

You can change the card or bank account that PayPal uses to collect recurring payments for your subscription by following these steps:

  • Log in to your PayPal account
  • Click "Profile" near the top of the page
  • Click "My money"
  • Click "Update" in the My preapproved payments section
  • Click "Set Available Funding Sources" in the top right corner of the table
  • Select all payment methods you might want to use for making payments to any company (this includes other companies as well as us) and click Save.
  • If you want to set a specific recurring payment to only use a particular payment method, click the name of the merchant for the agreement you want to change
  • Click "Change" beside Backup Funding Source in the Funding Source section.
  • Select the payment method you'd like to use and click Save.


    #7. I don't want to subscribe (or resubscribe) using Patreon. Do you offer another payment method?

    Unfortunately not. Owing to additional regulations that have recently been introduced in the EU, we are now only able to process new monthly recurring payments using Patreon. That includes subscribers who were originally subscribers by email.



    #8. Please can you send me an invoice?

    If you are a Patreon subscriber (after October 2019), then you can find information about all the payments you have made inside your Patreon account.

    If you are an email subscriber (before October 2019) and a non-EU resident, then we do not need to send you one, because you receive one automatically. PayPal emails an invoice to your PayPal primary email address each time a payment is made.

    If you are an email subscriber (before October 2019) and an EU resident, and you need a VAT/IVA receipt, then please use the contact form to request these from our support team.


    #9. How can I cancel my subscription?

    If you are a Patreon subscriber (after October 2019), then you can do this easily inside your Patreon account.

    If you are an email subscriber (before October 2019), you can do this as follows.

    Firstly, make sure that you are logged into the correct PayPal account. This is the PayPal account that you used to purchase the subscription with.

    Please note that if you are logged into the wrong PayPal account, you will not be able to unsubscribe successfully.

    Secondly, once you have logged into the correct PayPal account, simply click on the button below:


    #10. Why am I still making payments, if I canceled my subscription?

    If you are a Patreon subscriber (after October 2019), then if you are still making payments, you didn't cancel your subscription properly. Look at your Patreon account for more details.

    If you an email subscriber (before October 2019), then the most likely causes for this are:

    1. That you clicked on the AWeber link instead of the PayPal link, by mistake.

      On all of our emails, we tell you that if you unsubscribe by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link to AWeber (included at the bottom of our emails) and not using the "PayPal unsubscribe button" link, this does not cancel your subscription payments.

    2. You used the PayPal unsubscribe button, which is found on all of the emails we have sent you, but logged in to the wrong PayPal account.

    If you cannot find one of the emails with the unsubscribe link, or have any other worries, you can login directly to your PayPal account and cancel the payment from there by following these steps:

    • Log in to your PayPal account
    • Click "Profile" near the top of the page
    • Depending on your PayPal version, either: click "My money" > click "Update" in the My preapproved payments section
    • Or: click "Payments" > click "Pre-approved payments
    • Select "Strength & Conditioning Research" from your list of payments
    • Click "Cancel" on the payment profile


    #11. Why have you not replied to my email?

    You are probably emailing a no-reply email address that is used for sending bulk emails, which our technical support team do not have access to. Instead, please use our contact form, which goes directly to our technical support team. They will get back to you within 48 hours.
