Frequently Asked Questions

All your burning questions about the My French Country Home Digital Magazine, answered!

Why should I subscribe to MFCH Magazine? How is it different from the blog?

Each magazine issue will be about 120 pages and full of content by different contributors, including Sharon herself. Some very talented writers, photographers, illustrators, artisans and more are featured in the pages of each issue, so the content will be diverse and interesting. We will never publish anything in the magazine that has already been seen on the blog but we see it as a natural extension.

How do I subscribe?

To the print magazine: Click here to sign up to the print subscription (yearly or single issue). Enter your email, address and payment details. We will send you an email confirming your purchase. Print orders placed within the months the issue is for will be for that issue. (ex. Print orders for the May/June issue are taken up until June 30th or until sold out (this will be clearly noted if it occurs), and orders for the July/August issue start July 1st). The copy of the current issue will be delivered within 4-6 weeks. For our clients located outside of the US, this may take longer. If you purchased an annual print subscription, you will receive another email within 48-72 hours from Joomag, our digital publishing platform, giving you immediate access to the digital version of the current issue.

To the digital magazine: Click here to sign up to the digital subscription (yearly or single issue). All digital issues are for the current issue of the magazine. Enter your email and payment details. You will receive an email confirming your purchase, and then within 2-3 working days, another email from Joomag, our digital publishing platform giving you access the current digital issue, and more information on how to set up an account to access the issue (or your subscription) at any time, and links to download the app on Apple or Android.

How much is a subscription?

It costs US$59.99 for a yearly print subscription (+shipping fees for addresses outside of the USA) and US$35.99 for a yearly digital subscription. Payment options available are via credit card. If you live outside of the US, your bank will automatically convert the price to your currency at purchase.

Why is the print subscription more expensive than the digital subscription?

Within your print subscription you also have access to the digital subscription and the App version. For our print magazine, we have chosen a good quality paper to improve your reader experience, and within the USA, shipping to your door is included in the price.

I'm having trouble making the purchase.

As the payment is being processed in France, sometimes your credit card will flag the purchase thinking it is fraudulent as it is not being made in your current country. To solve this, you will need to call your credit card company to let them know that the purchase will be coming through and then try the order again.

How often is the magazine published?

New issues will be released every two months on the 15th of the month (January, March, May, July, September, November).

What do I get with a yearly print subscription?

You will receive 6 issues of the print magazine, full FREE access to the digital issues and App version of the magazine (viewable on your computer, tablet, or phone) and two single digital issues to share with two friends.

Can I buy a single issue?

Yes! You can purchase both the print and digital versions individually. This option is only available for the current issue, not for past issues. Print is US$12.99 per issue (plus an additional US$2.50 for shipping to countries outside of the US) and digital is US$6.99 per issue.

Will you send me confirmation of my subscription/purchase?

Once you have submitted your order, you will receive a confirmation email of your purchase. Please note that access to the digital version of the magazine will come in another email sent within 2 to 3 working days of your purchase from our digital publishing platform, Joomag.

When will I receive my print magazine?

Orders for single print issues are for the current issue and will be delivered within 4-6 weeks of purchase.

For our annual subscribers, the first issue of your purchase is for the current issue and will take 4-6 weeks to arrive. The following issue and all those thereafter in your subscription are expected to arrive within 2-3 weeks of the release date of each issue (the 15th of Jan/Mar/May/July/Sept/Nov). Please note for clients located outside of the US, delivery times might be longer.

*The order cut off for print orders is the end of the last month of the issue or until sold out (this will be clearly noted). For example, print orders for the May/June issue will end on the last day of June, and orders for the July/August issue will start July 1st.

How can I read my digital magazine?

You will receive an email from Joomag, our digital publishing platform, confirming your subscription within a few days. It will include 3 links:
#1 – to view the current issue of the magazine or the issue you subscribed to, by using a generated code to grant access.
#2 – to set up your user account with Joomag, our digital publishing platform. This will allow you to easily return at any time to view the issue and all future issues in your subscription, in Your Library.

Who is Joomag?

Joomag is an independent digital publishing platform. This is where our digital magazine is published and where you will be able to access it with your digital subscription or issue purchase.

I have a Joomag account. Do I need to log in to change my subscription to print?

As Joomag is an independent digital publishing platform, it is not linked to our website. They are not printing the issues, therefore you will not be able to simply login to your Joomag account and make the change to print. 

In order to receive print copies, please take out a new yearly print subscription or purchase single print issues via this site
