YIThemes digital products are subject to the Directive 2011/83/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2011 on consumer rights, which reads that if they have been downloaded, digital products not supplied on a tangible medium are excluded from the right of withdrawal.
1. Time limit for refund requests and grounding reasons
If you have problems getting extensions or themes to work, in the first place, you must allow us to try and help fix any issue you are experiencing. If the issue can’t be fixed and doesn’t depend on an incompatibility problem with a third party’s product, we will be happy to provide a full refund within 30 days since the initial purchase. After 30 days, refunds will no longer be granted.
Refund requests are to be sent via ticket to our Support help desk or by clicking the button you find at the bottom of this page. In order to receive a quick answer, please follow the related guidelines specified in point 2.b.You should accompany your request with detailed and grounded reasons why you decided to apply for a refund.
Please make sure your request does not contradict our Refund Policy
2. Processing Refund requests
Once we get your request, please give it 24-48 hours for our Support Team to get back to you on your support tickets (see the details of our support policy). We suggest not to further update your ticket until one of our developers replies, as every update will decrease the priority acquired by the ticket itself.
Refunds are available once per person or entity and will not apply if your account is in violation of our terms of service.
2.a. Claims, Chargebacks and Disputes
In case you decide to file a claim with your credit card company or Stripe, you will not be granted a refund under any circumstances and you will also be banned from using YITHemes.com products and service in the future.
Filing these claims is a time-consuming, expensive and unnecessary process for all parties involved, it’s what people aiming to defraud us would do, and we will personally fight all of these claims.
We keep track of all member activity, and we regularly submit it to our payment gateway and/or credit card companies, this means we are often able to win these claims, which would damage your credit rating with your credit card provider and our gateway provider.
Let’s all try to avoid being nasty to each other, all we want is to help, please talk with us instead, we will do our best to fix any issue and avoid unpleasant situations.
We believe that our policies are reasonable as we offer a clear and sensible path to refunds and we are committed to helping you out to the best of our ability.
2.b. User’s responsibility
Before a refund is granted, you must allow us to try and help solve any problem you have with our products. A correct ticket refund should contain:
- The name of the product you are asking a refund for
- Your order number
- The reason why you are asking for a refund
2.c. Illegitimate refund requests
Refunds will not be granted if you simply decide not to use the purchased products or if the product was purchased for evaluation purposes.
