Customer Service

Q: How do I log in? 

A: To log in and access online Stone Soup content and your account, click on the “My Account” link on the top right corner of the page. Most Stone Soup logins are email addresses.


Q: Can I cancel auto-renew? 

A: Yes. On the Stone Soup homepage, click on the “My Account” link on the top right hand corner of the page. If you’re not currently logged in, you’ll be prompted to do so. Once you’ve logged in, you’ll be redirected to a page titled “My Account.” Click on “Subscriptions”. If you have one subscription, you will be directed straight to a page where you may use a slider to switch auto-renew on and off. If you have more than one subscription, click on “Subscriptions,” then select the relevant subscription from the list and then use the slider as outlined above.


Q: Can I change credit cards associated with my Stone Soup Account? 

A: Yes. On the Stone Soup homepage, click on the “My Account” link on the top right hand corner of the page. If you’re not currently logged in, you’ll be prompted to do so. Once you’ve logged in, you’ll be redirected to a page titled “My Account.” Click on “Payment Methods” to view, edit or delete your current payment methods.


Q: Do you store credit card information?

A: No. Stone Soup does not store any credit card information and our staff do not have access to your credit card details. Your credit card information is securely stored by Authorize.net, a division of Visa.


Q: Can I switch my subscription from Digital Only to Print and Digital? 

A: Yes. The simplest way to do so at the moment would be to cancel your current Digital Subscription and re-subscribe with the Print and Digital option. We are currently working on a method to make this process easier.


Q: I’d like to be removed from the mailing list. 

A: To comply with European Union regulations (GDPR), we must ask you to remove yourself from our mailing list. Our staff can no longer do this for you. All mailings that we send have an ‘Unsubscribe’ link in the footer. Simply  scroll down to the end of an email you’ve received from Stone Soup and click on the “Unsubscribe From This List” option in the footer. If you ever wish to re-subscribe, you can fill out the “Sign Up for Our Newsletter” form on our homepage.


Q: I’d like to be refunded for my subscription. 

A: If you subscribe by the month, then login to your account and turn off auto renew. If you want to cancel an annual subscription or any subscription that includes print then please write to subscriptions@stonesoup.com. Please include your name and the name and city of the child who receives the magazine. We will respond to your request within 48 hours.


Q: I subscribed but I haven’t received any issues. 

A: If you ordered between the 1st and 13th of the month your first issue will be shipped on the 15th. If you ordered between the 14th and the end of the month your first issue will ship on the 1st of the following month. Magazines take one to three weeks to arrive within the United States and Canada. All other destinations should estimate two to three weeks for your first issue to arrive.

A: Casual visitors to our website can read a few items for free, but to access the full range of Stone Soup content you must be logged in to your account.
