Ask MagCloud: Ordering & Checkout

Do I need to have a MagCloud account to buy something?

We encourage you to create a MagCloud account prior to placing any orders so that you can view your order status and access tracking information at any time. With that said, we do not require a Magcloud account to purchase print copies, just make sure you include an email address during checkout where we can send your receipt and any updates on your order.

You are able to purchase and download digital publications in the MagCloud iPad app as a guest, however logging into the app with a MagCloud account will save your purchased publications to your Digital Library on, allowing you to read them on other devices. Purchases made in the iPad app as a guest will only be available for reading on that iPad through the MagCloud app.

A MagCloud account is required for all digital purchases made on, and for saving free digital publications to your Digital Library. This allows us to store your digital purchases for reading or downloading in the future. If you would prefer to make a purchase on without creating a MagCloud account, you will need to remove any digital items from your cart prior to continuing with our checkout process.
