It costs between £48 per year plus VAT, depending on the size of your setting. You pay for it in a single annual payment, at the start of your subscription. See full pricing details here.
There is no limit – all of the staff at your institution can use it, although your use is subject to the Terms and Conditions of the site. We don't charge for extra people, the price you pay gives everyone access to everything.
Yes, of course!
You can! The site content can be printed or saved to personal computers. But remember that use of the site content is subject to our Terms and Conditions: printing and saving should be for personal use, and standard copyright restrictions apply regarding unauthorised copying and distribution.
Yes! It's quick and easy for any authenticated user to set up a personal account to save items to view later, organise saved items into folders, save searches and set up search alerts so you know when we add new material which would be useful to you.
To make it quick and easy, have the following information to hand:
1) Name of who will be the Account holder and their email address.
This is the person who is in charge of payment, and would be contacted about renewing the subscription.
2) The address of the organisation to be invoiced or, if you are a sole trader or individual, your credit card details.
3) The IP range or address you wish to be granted access to the site.
If you use an IP range, it means that the site is automatically logged in at your setting – no usernames or passwords to get lost and all of the resources are to hand right when you need them. If you use a single computer, you can find out your IP address simply, and if you can’t there are a number of websites which do it for you, so simply search for it. For your organisation, nursery or school you may need to ask whoever is the network administrator – your business manager or IT team.
Yes, you will receive an invoice and can then settle it by BACS, cheque or credit card.
Our team are available Monday-Friday 9am to 4.30pm and if you have forgotten the username and password of the main account, the named account holder can ring us to retrieve it. We can only give it to this person. If you have forgotten your personal password, you can follow the ‘forgot password’ links to reset it yourself.
We are thrilled you are enjoying BEY. To renew your account, head over to ‘my-account’ and update your payment settings for another year.
Yes you can, although we are sorry to see you go.
