You are not tied into a contract. At the end of your trial period, if you would like to stay listed, you will need to enter your payment details to complete your order.
Managing your annual subscription
We operate on a manual subscription basis. What does this mean? This means payments are not automatic. You must agree each year to the payment, payments will not auto renew – this is all done via your owner’s dashboard. If payment is not received, your listing will not show on the site, your account and listing will be deleted (GDPR). If you would like to leave, simply delete your account.
What personal details will I need to Join ListDirect?
A few details are needed in order to set up your account; Why are these details needed? Systems on our site are linked to an external merchant, even if you are on a free trial period these details are required by the merchant for processing (what their system views as an order) .
Please be assured that you are NOT charged, card details are not requested until AFTER your trial period ends and only if you wish to stay listed. If you do not have a business name, not a problem please just use your own name.
