Even though the site clearly states “You’re covered by our 7 days money back guarantee” and I requested a refund 1 hour after I realized this plugin would not suit my needs. My refund request was denied. Apparently they only offer refunds if the plugin is broken and they can’t fix it. As a developer, I will not be doing business with this company again.
