What’s NOT covered in Free Technical Support?
We do not provide support on the following conditions:
- Any source code modification, addition, or deletion for any reason.
If you modified, removed, or added any code from/to the original plugin source for any reason, it will break the integrity of our plugin designs. Breaking our ability to reproduce code will automatically make your plugin unsupportable from our end. Please refer to our support policy for details.

What’s your refund policy?
Although our products and services are well tested before they are released to the market, there might be some use cases that may produce defects. As we are offering non-tangible digital goods, we do not generally issue refunds after the purchase has been made.
We firmly believe in and stand behind our product 100%, but we understand that it cannot work perfectly for everyone all of the time.

Why are the plugins “Billed yearly until cancelled”?
Our plugins come with 1 year free access to support and updates. To be able to get plugin updates and access to our support services, you need to have a valid license at all times.
Like everything else in our life, software we use changes. Bugs get fixed, new features are added, existing features get updated, security issues get discovered etc. All of these changes may affect your ability to keep your software in working condition and protect yourself and/or your organization against issues which may cause financial loss. Running your software in a closed environment like intranet is not an excuse. The risk is there.
Although you can never totally eliminate risk, you can minimize it by keeping your software updated. We continuously update and improve our plugins by:
* Fixing plugin related defects
* Fixing WordPress related defects
* Improving and modifying code base to be compatible with existing and future WordPress releases
* Patching security issues reducing vulnerability space
* Adding new features and/or improving existing features
* Improving code efficiency and compatibility with other WordPress plugins and themes
Let's face it, people have more important things to do than keeping track of when a plugin license is going to expire affecting the very ability to access software updates and support hence risking the peace of mind.
That's why we offer optional subscription based recurring payments to simplify things for our customers. Recurring payments get the guess work out of the process and protects your software investment by maintaining your ability to access software update and support at all times. If you do not want to continue receiving updates or do not need support for whatever reason and risk it all, you can cancel it anytime. It is totally up to you.
You can also keep the plugin as long as you need if you decide to unsubscribe or not purchase renewal license after 1 year. Having said that, we always recommend updating your software whether it is WordPress, our plugin or else. Plain and simple.
