Did you buy the Photostory Deluxe 365 version which is subscription only?

If not then when did you purchased the 2024 program

I bought the 2024 Photostory Deluxe in September 2023 not realising I had to pay a subscription for 365.

I haven't been able to find where to apply for the subscription for 365.

In which case your only option, I think, is to email, give full details of your previous order, explain that you would like to "transfer" to the 365 version and ask for their help. You may be fortunate and they offer you a refund in exchange for taking out a subscription.

You apply for the subscription via the page highlighted in @johnebaker's earlier reply.
