If you have registered properly and you are yet to receive your login details.

For some , delays do not occur , for some it would take a few hours or more. You need to check back on your email to get it. But one thing for sure is that it will arrive. If it arrives in your “spam folder” move it to “your inbox “and identify it as “not spam” .If you you need it urgently another alternative is create it for you manually .
