Upgrading from Basic Member to Supporting Member

You can upgrade your subscription from Basic Member to Supporting Member at any time.

Upgrading during a Basic Member subscription consists in the payment of a full year’s Supporting Member fee, less the unused part of the Basic Member subscription. The new upgraded subscription will last for twelve months from the upgrade date. If you are a Basic Member, check out the upgrade price from your account page.

For example, a subscriber who wishes to upgrade their Basic Member one-year subscription (29.95 €) after 9 months, will pay a one-year Supporting Member subscription (44.95 €), less the unused 3 months of the Basic Member’s fee (7.49 €), a total of 37.46 €, and will enjoy full Supporting Member access for twelve months from the upgrade date.


Subscription Process

The subscription process is very easy and takes a few minutes. This video shows all the required steps.

Just choose a subscription plan and complete the registration form.


Subscription Renewals

Renewals can be processed online through this website. You can see available options on your private personal page (you need to be logged in). You will be contacted via email by a customer services representative some time before your subscription is due to expire. Please note that if you renew your subscription before it expires, you won’t have to pay the registration fee again.

Lynx Edicions does not keep the details of the credit card used to purchase the initial subscription, so you will need to re-enter payment information upon renewal.

Now you can renew your subscription automatically!
To sign up for an automatic subscription, please complete the form on your user account page.
How does it work? As your subscription renewal becomes due each year it will be automatically charged to your credit card, for a period of one year from the previous expiry date.

Subscription Policy / Cancellation

The subscription is for the full period of time and cannot be cancelled before it expires. Billing is based solely on provision of access for the period of time contracted, not on usage of the site. We cannot issue refunds to members that stop using HBW Alive or who feel that they have not fully used it.
