Q&A about: Title Selections and Newspaper Alerts

In this post, I’ll share with you some answers to questions PressDisplay.com users asked about our title selections.  Feel free to suggest other questions for this post and we’ll do our best to answer them.  Also, don’t forget to check out the help files on PressDisplay.com related to this area.

1. Why do you not carry the NYT or WSJ?

There are some newspaper publishers (like the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal) who have invested heavily in their own online editions and are not yet prepared to share them on an aggregated news site. 

Both the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal are part of our Print-on-Demand service, but have not yet taken the next step to join the PressDisplay.com family. 

However, we at NewspaperDirect are hopeful that this will change in the future and we will continue to negotiate for their inclusion in our continually expanding list of titles. 

Note, we do have the Wall Street Journal Europe and the Wall Street Journal Asia. 

We won’t give up.  Perhaps you could send the publishers you want to see on PressDisplay.com  a little encouragement?   Just don’t tell them I sent you. 🙂

2. Can I choose different papers within the 31 issues under my economy plan?

Absolutely.  Although the 31 issues was based around the number of days in a month (for people who like their favorite daily newspaper sent to them every day with an email alert), you are not limited by the choice of papers or by time.  You could choose all 31 different issues in one day or choose different issues over an extended period, even beyond a month.  It’s up to you what papers you choose and when you choose them.

3. Why don’t you carry more magazines?

The answer to this is very much like the answer to question 1 above.  We’d love to have more magazines, but many magazines are still tied to their own electronic editions.  We’ll continue to pursue these, however, as our goal is to continue to provide you with the widest selection of full replica publications anywhere on the internet. 

Which magazines would you like to see on PressDisplay.com?

4. Every day I seem to be receiving an email from PressDisplay.com, indicating that some newspaper or magazine title has been released. What is this all about?

The Newspaper alert is one of our free and handy features available at PressDisplay. It lets you know when your favorite publication is available for your reading enjoyment on PressDisplay.com. This is often before the issue hits local newsstands. Subscription to this feature was part of the registration process when you first visited to PressDisplay™.

5. How can I subscribe to this Newspaper alert?

To manage your email alerts and newspapers within My Newspapers, simply click on Edit. In the ‘My account’ console you will be able to add and remove newspapers to My Newspapers as well as manage all newspaper alerts.

6. I don’t want to receive Newspaper alerts. Is there an easy way to stop these emails?

Absolutely. You can either click on the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in the actual email you’ve received, or visit ‘My Newspapers’. Once logged in you may choose to delete newspaper alerts.
