I'm a Friend of Aeon. Have I lost my benefits?

We have recently updated our donations programme to offer two options – one-time donations or recurring donations. To keep it simple, we no longer use the term ‘Friends’, instead we use the term ‘Recurring Supporters’, but any reader who originally signed up as a Friend will still have access to their benefits of saving articles and annotating. Sign-in to your user account here:

If you are unable to see your benefits when signed in, please contact so we can complete the process.

I intended to make a one-time donation but have been charged twice. Why?

We have two donation pathways available.

You can make a one-time donation or become a Recurring Supporter by providing either monthly or annual ongoing support.

If you would like to cancel an ongoing donation please see question 3 (below).

How do I change/cancel my recurring donation?

If you're a Recurring Supporter, click on the avatar in the right-hand corner of the screen. Go to 'Profile'. Click on the ‘Donations’ tab on your profile page. You can manage your recurring donation here. If you would like to change or cancel your ongoing donation via PayPal, simply log in to your PayPal account.

How do I update my credit card?

In order to update your credit card for a recurring donation, simply sign in here: Click on the avatar in the right-hand corner. Go to 'Profile'. Select 'Donations'. Select 'Update credit card'.

Once this is updated, your recurring support should continue as usual.
