Payment Methods


The Skeptic currently does not produce a print edition, though readers wishing to support us can take out a voluntary monthly subscription via Patreon. This allows us to continue making our content available online for all readers.

A limited range of back issue of The Skeptic are currently available. Payment for those back issues is processed via PayPal, as are European subscriptions to Skeptical Inquirer, although you can still pay with a normal credit or debit card. Simply click through the various options in our online shop and when you are redirected to the PayPal payment page, choose the link under “Don’t have a PayPal account? No problem, continue checkout.”

Choosing this option will allow you to pay by:
Visa/Delta/Electron, Switch/Maestro, Solo, MasterCard/Eurocard, or American Express. We also accept payments from PayPal accounts. If you are familiar with eBay, this is equally as straightforward.

By post

Alternatively, we do accept cheques (in Pounds Sterling) and postal orders (payable to ‘The Skeptic’). We also accept a limited number of credit/debit cards for postal applications. For MasterCard and Visa, please quote your name as it appears on your card, including card number and expiry date.

Please note: regardless of payment method, your order will only be confirmed after successfully completing payment. If you experience any difficulty with ordering, please contact Mike Hutchinson, the Subscriptions Manager, using the details below.

All back issue orders for The Skeptic (as well as subscription enquiries for Skeptical Inquirer) should be addressed to:
