You can now buy and read The Big Issue in the North in a whole new way as The Big Issue in the North has launched a digital edition of the magazine.

As well as buying the traditional paper version of the magazine you can now purchase a card from vendors. The card, which still costs £2 just like the magazine, features a scratch off panel which reveals a unique code. To see the magazine, scan the QR code featured on the card or visit and enter the code found on the card.

Here’s a short video about the new digital cards:

The card is now available in Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield and will be available in Liverpool very soon.
