How do I access my digital subscription?
Once you purchase your digital subscription, you will be logged in to your account from the device you used to purchase the subscription. You don’t have to do anything else to access the content on the website.
However, if you switch to another device or clear your saved login data, you may see the message asking you to subscribe. If that happens, simply click the “Sign In” button on the top left corner of that screen and enter your e-mail address and the password you selected.
What if I don’t want to purchase a digital subscription? Will I be blocked from the site?
No. You will still have access to a limited number of articles each month. Upon reaching your limit, you will be asked to subscribe for full access. Some of our content, like the homepage, photos, video, and classifieds will always remain free. However, access to our e-editon and our app package is only available to MDJ print or digital subscribers.
Why has the Marietta Daily Journal started charging for online access?
Newspapers across the country are witnessing a growing number of readers preferring to consume news online. They, and we, can no longer reasonably expect to support our online franchise through advertising revenue alone. As a result, we’ve opted for a “metered” approach, which gives readers a limited number of articles each month before asking readers to pay a monthly fee for full access.
What is Press+?
Press+ is our e-commerce system for digital subscriptions. When you subscribe to MDJonline.com, you will create a Press+ account, and Press+ will charge your credit card for the subscription amount. The charge will appear on your credit card statement as “Press Plus” in the amount you have selected for your subscription.
If I have a computer at home and a computer at my office, do I need to purchase two digital subscriptions?
No. You can log in using your account username and password from wherever you access the Internet.
Is access to the e-Edition included in my digital subscription?
Yes. If you enter the account information for your digital subscription when prompted, you will gain access to our e-edition. Access to our apps and mobile site are also included.
Is the popup “subscribe” window a secure URL?
Yes. If you right-click on the window and “view frame info” or “frame source,” you'll see it's an https URL.
How will digital subscriptions be billed?
Press+ accepts major credit cards. Subscriptions are billed every 30 days for monthly subscriptions or every 360 days for annual subscriptions. Your subscription renews automatically, and you are charged in advance of each billing cycle unless you cancel. Note: Because Press+ is managing the billing for your digital subscription, the charge on your credit card statement will say “Press Plus” rather than the MDJ.
How do I cancel my subscription?
To cancel your digital products, simply email email@example.com
What is the cancellation policy?
You will be able to cancel your subscription at any time. When you cancel, Press+ will stop charging your account the following billing cycle. Your unlimited access will continue for the remainder of the current 30-day period. Afterward, you will still be able to view a limited number of articles per month on MDJonline.com at no charge, just like any other visitor.
