FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Shop work?

Our shop is like a supermarket. However, as this is also a Membership website, you need to be Registered (once only), and you must please Login to use the shop and get the most from our website facilities.

No one starts shopping with a items in the shopping cart, so make sure you have an empty cart prior to starting – empty your cart here (see red arrow below)!
Remove An Item from the Cart


Just as in the supermarket, simply add products to your cart (the shopping cart), proceed to checkout and purchase them.
In our shop “the aisles” are called Categories, which most often have Sub-categories (the shelves) and these have products.
So to navigate our shop, look for a Category of the product you wish to purchase, click on it and the available subcategories or products will display.

Sometimes our products are for certain memberships only (eg the National Conference for Standard Membership is only available to AusAPT Standard Membership). You need to already be a Member (eg AusAPT Standard Membership) to purchase the Conference product, as the Membership provides you access rights to purchase it. So please buy it in order – purchase the membership that suits you first, then purchase the products that the Membership provides you access to.
warning: if you don’t see add to cart for the product, you do not have the right membership for it.

What is Registration and how often do I have to do it?

Registration is the process of creating your identity and credentials to use the website. It is a once-only Registration process which you can follow by heading to the Register page. Once registered you will receive a unique password to enable your login to the site and to manage the payments required for membership or our conference as well as to access materials reserved for members.

How do I become a member?

It is an easy process. You need to be registered (see above). Login and simply go to the Shop and purchase the appropriate membership type for you. It is an annual membership that finishes on 30th June each year.
