The cost of subscription is set at a standard rate but we often have offers giving large discounts.
For example: We have recently had a promotion on yearly memberships. Subscriptions are simply reverting to the standard rate in the second year. We do make this very clear on the join page and the subsequent sign up process. An example of this is the 50% discount we often give
WHEN YOU SUBSCRIBE TO YEARLY SUBSCRIPTIONS YOU WOULD SEE THIS:
‘Click Here’ Option 2 – for an unbelievable 50% discount off your first year’s subscription…
THEN ON THAT SAME PAGE THIS:
Subscription payments will be taken automatically on monthly or yearly basis (depending on subscription option) and will appear on your statement as Gov Auctions UK. If you wish to cancel at any time simply Click Here and forward your payment receipt. (You are instructed to keep your payment receipt several times during the sign up).
THEN AFTER CLICKING ON OPTION 2 YOU MOVE ONTO THE SUBSCRIPTION FORM:You are presented with the terms and conditions in the subscription form BEFORE moving on and entering your payment details. It is at this point you leave a box checked to say you have read and accepted all the terms.
PLEASE NOTE THAT FULL TERMS AND CONDITIONS ARE AVAILABLE FROM THE JOIN PAGE AND CAN BE READ BEFORE YOU EVEN GO TO THE SUBSCRIBE FORMS.
Then finally it reminds you of the process on your welcome e-mail. We present the terms in several places to protect the customer and inform them of our systems up front, creating an atmosphere of honesty and openness. Please bear in mind that when you subscribe you cannot complete the process unless you confirm that you have read and accepted the terms, which are outlined in the subscription form.
