I have Euro and US Dollar banking accounts, can I purchase from you using these currencies rather than Sterling?

As all payments are taken by PayPal you can pay using any account or credit card but all payments will be billed in GBP at the current exchange rate.

What happens if my payment fails?

If a payment fails you will be notified by email and the payment will be retried 3 times over the next 24 hours. If the payment is still unsuccessful and we have not received any reply to our email notices then your account will be disabled until the payment is made. For this reason it is very important to make sure your contact details are up to date so we can reliably contact you.

To change from monthly to annual billing just raise a ticket with our support team who will adjust your account and send you details of your new subscription

How do I cancel my account, is there a tie-in period?

We don't believe in tieing our customers into their accounts, we want you to stay with us because of the service we provide not because you are tied into a long contract. We do offer the option to pay annually at a discounted rate but if you choose to pay monthly you can cancel your account at any time.
