What types of membership do you offer?
ChemLinked offers 5 types of memberships: free, basic, standard,
corporate and special.
The latter four
ones are also called premium membership. For more details you can refer to the membership
service page of each portal.
What are the main differences among the 5 types of memberships?
Free membership allows you to have limited access only to the unlocked regulatory news,
articles, free webinars and E-publication.
Basic membership is ideal for those who seek the latest resources available but whose
needs or budgets are limited. It gives you access to all our news, foodpedia, regulatory
analyses and market insights, and also includes discounts to our advertising service.
Standard membership is individual-based and offers the most available resources (slight
among each portal), which is more suitable for an individual or one person from a company.
Corporate membership allows users ≤ 20 from one company to enjoy unlimited access to all
available resources, which is more suitable for large companies or multinational enterprises who
are in need of using ChemLinked by more than one staff.
Special membership is for multi-users more than 20 from one company to enjoy unlimited
all resources or for bodies, agencies, organizations, associations, chambers of commerce, or any
non-profit centers, which have a group of members of their own and will potentially re-circulate
our resources to them. The membership price will be evaluated and determined based on the
property and the number of the members of the organization.

You may either pay online through PayPal to activate your premium membership automatically, or

Can I pay price gap in order to upgrade to corporate membership from current standard
You may upgrade your membership to Corporate level at latest before one month your standard
membership expires, the corporate subscription dues will be estimated and deduct the rest value
of your current standard membership from the original corporate quotation. E.g., a food standard
subscriber from Apr 1, 2017 decides to upgrade to food corporate from Jul 1, 2017, then the price gap
= $4,999-$1799*((12-3)/12) = $3649.75. The new corporate membership will last for one year
from Jul 1, 2017.
