By purchasing the subscription for Jane, John, and themselves your customer, Jane, and John can now manage their individual subscriptions from their My Account pages where they can also download your content.

Employee (Recipient’s) View

Because John didn’t have an account with your store, an account will be automatically created so he can manage the subscription.

John will receive an email about the purchases made for him and an email with the account login details. The first time John logs in, he will be prompted to fill out some account details where he can change his password.

Once his account is set up, he can view and manage his subscription from his My Account > View Subscription page.  He can also download digital copies of the news items here.
