  • I was billed but don't have an account- Authorizations new billing FAQ

    When you attempted to sign-up, your card was authorized for the amount of the subscription you selected for each attempt. When your sign-up did not go through for those attempts, we did not process this amount as a charge.
    You may see a pending transaction for the amount. This is only an authorization and will automatically drop off of your statement within a few business days. We apologize for any inconvenience. Because this is an authorization and not real charges we are unable to determine when it will drop off your statement. However if you need assistance with charge that was processed, please feel free to reach out to our customer care team

  • What are Chargebacks?

    A chargeback is a payment reversal provided by a bank to the card holder on unauthorized or fraudulent purchase transactions. It is not to be confused with a refund, which is a return of payment back to a legitimate purchaser dissatisfied with the services paid for.
    Incurring a chargeback on your account will result in an account suspension and will prevent us from issuing refunds on the disputed transaction in question. We also reserve the right to challenge a chargeback if we believe that the dispute is invalid. In this case, if we win the challenge, you will still be charged for the initial transaction and you will not be able to receive a refund on that transaction.
    Canceling a chargeback and getting a refund
    If you are unsatisfied with the service or data we provided and would like to request a refund, or cancel your account, please contact our Customer Support center and our team will be happy to assist you.
    If you have mistakenly requested a chargeback instead of a refund, you can generally cancel that chargeback within 10 days, depending on your bank. Canceling the chargeback and requesting a refund instead will speed up the process, avoiding long term resolution periods for the banks.
    Our customers’ satisfaction is of the utmost importance. If you require assistance, have any questions about your subscription, or are simply not sure how to proceed, please visit our FAQ section or contact us at 1 332-225-9745 or send us an email at [email protected]
