FAQ

What's Club MacStories?

Club MacStories is a way to unlock extra MacStories content that serves as companion material to the website, delivered every week. Subscriptions are available at $5/month or $50/year.

Club MacStories is not a paywall for the website, which will always remain free and supported by sponsors.

On top of the additional content you're paying for, with a Club MacStories membership you'll also make a direct contribution to the MacStories team, helping us produce quality content on a daily basis.

Can I read back issues of MacStories Weekly and Monthly Log after I sign up?

You bet. Log in with your Club MacStories account at club.macstories.net and you'll find an archive of every newsletter we've sent since September 2015. They're all yours to read.

Can I switch to an annual plan?

Yep! Just visit your account dashboard and select 'Change plan'. You’ll be switched after your current subscription period ends.

Can I give a Club MacStories subscription as a gift?

Yes! Please read this article for details.

Is this secure?

Yes. Subscriptions are handled with a Memberful integration on MacStories, which supports HTTPS and is GDPR-compliant. Memberful uses Stripe to securely process payments.

Credit card data is sent securely to Stripe before the payment form is submitted. Memberful never sees your credit card data – only Stripe does. Stripe is PCI- and GDPR-compliant and secure. You can read the Memberful security FAQ here.

Will you spam me?

Absolutely not. We promise we won't resell or share your email address with any third-party. Your email address will only be used to deliver MacStories Weekly, the Monthly Log, and Club MacStories-related communications.

Where can I manage my subscription?

You can manage all your subscription settings here, including account deletion and modification of personal data. By default, subscriptions are set to renew automatically.

Do you have a Privacy Policy and Terms of Service I can read?

Yes. We are fully GDPR-compliant and you read our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.

Will Weekly be delivered every single week?

It's our goal to deliver an issue of MacStories Weekly every single week, but we may take some weeks off during the year.

We'll let the numbers speak for themselves here. During 2017, we delivered 48 issues of MacStories Weekly and 12 issues of the Monthly Log. We took 3 weeks off for national holidays and personal reasons. We aim to keep this level of frequency going forward.

Who's behind this?

The MacStories team, and primarily Federico Viticci, Ryan Christoffel, and John Voorhees.

Federico is the founder and Editor in Chief of MacStories, who's been writing about Apple and apps for over six years now. Ryan writes for MacStories with a focus on iPad and the iOS ecosystem. John Voorhees is a regular MacStories contributor, creator of Blink, and co-host with Robb Lewis of the podcast Ruminate.

So, yes, we are people. We're an indie website about Apple and this is what we do every day.
