Q. Why am I being asked to pay?
If you use the Zinio site

Q. How many magazines can I check out at one time?
You can checkout as many magazines as you want - there is no limit!
Q. How long can I check out magazines for?
There is no time limit. Once you check out a magazine, it will remain in your library until you delete it.
