Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: There is a negative balance (credit) in my account. How do I apply this to an outstanding invoice or subscription renewal?

A: Email the Membership Officer with your member code (beginning with M0) and she will allocate the credit to the invoice or subscription renewal and send you an updated invoice.

Q: I would like to have a listing in the online Editors Directory (Find an Editor) but can’t add a subscription. How do I do this?
A: You will need to email the Membership Officer to add an Editors Directory subscription to your account. The ED subscription is $60 per year and is only available to Professional and Honorary Life members. Once added the Membership Officer will send you an invoice and instructions on how to create your entry through your IPEd member portal.

Q: I registered and paid for a branch event, but can no longer attend. How do I cancel my booking and get a refund?
A: Send an email to the Membership Officer who will cancel your booking. A refund will be provided according to the event cancellation policy. Late cancellations may not be eligible for a refund.

Q: I can’t log in to my IPEd member portal. How do I retrieve my username and password?
A: The Membership Officer can provide you with your IPEd member portal username, provided you have registered to use the portal. Passwords are not kept on file, but using your username you will be able to send yourself a password reset link from the login page, which is valid for 24 hours. This link will be sent to the primary email address you have listed in your IPEd membership account. If you do not receive the password reset link you can email the Membership Officer to update your email address and create a temporary password for you.

Find an editor

IPEd has established the Editors Directory. Clients can search the directory for freelance editors using specific criteria. These will identify editors that have specific interests, skills or experience in certain areas.
