After 14 days refunds will be prorated on the basis of any unused time in that specific month for monthly plans only. Annual plans are not eligible for a refund.

Only first-time accounts are eligible for a refund. For example, if you have had an account with us before, cancelled and signed up again, you will not be eligible for a refund.

Violations of the Terms of Use will waive the refund policy.

Cancelled account owners will immediately be restricted from logging in to wpminder.com and all maintenance services will be stopped within 24 hours of cancellation.
