You can pay online with your credit or debit cards (All major cards including; Mastercard, Visa, and American Express). Your card is automatically charged each month on a recurring basis until you cancel your subscription.
Am I locked into a contract?
With our monthly plans, we offer a pay-as-you-go style meaning you’ll never be locked into a plan and you can cancel or upgrade/downgrade at anytime. We do however, understand everyone is different and offer annual plans with a one-off-payment, we will provide the service for the year and then you can decide to remain on your current plan, change your plan, or cancel. Don’t worry we are also here to help, if you are on the annual plan and not happy, let us know and we can work with you to fix the problem.
Can I get a refund?
Yes. If you are unsatisfied we want to help find a solution, so let us know. We offer a 100% full refund within the first 30 days of the plan. After 30 days, refunds are prorated for the remaining time left in the month. Refunds are only available when paying monthly.
Can I change my plan after signup?
Of course. Businesses are always changing and so are your needs, if you need more or less from your plan, we are happy to change your to a different plan when the next billable month begins. We can even customise the plan to give you exactly what you need.
Can I customise or add more hours/content to my plan?
Yes. If you need anything above the Cut Throat plan, we will listen to what your needs are and create a plan that suit them perfectly.
What do I need to provide to get started?
We will assess your site when you sign up and see if there are any special requirements for your website. To get started we will need your WordPress admin and FTP details, if you are unsure of those details we will be able to work with you and contact the necessary web admins to get them.
We ensure that your information remains private and is only used to be able to offer our maintenance service.
What happens if my site breaks when doing maintenance?
While we take care to ensure compatibility of themes and plugins before updating, sometimes things can break unexpectedly. Luckily, we plan ahead and backup your website before doing any sort of updates. These backups are also stored incase of any hacking or security scares. We use your backups to restore or repair your website if necessary, and advise the author of the theme or plugin with the issue so it is fixed in the next version. This means we will have you back up and running as soon as possible.
Can you build or fix up my website?
Of course, we build websites big and small to fit your business and love to use WordPress to make them. This is part of our sister business Bearded Friend. Send us a message with some details and we will be able to give you a quote to build or re-imagine your website.
