OpenOffice.org Questions


General

When will my order arrive?

Orders should arrive in about one to two weeks after we have received payment. If you have been waiting for more than two weeks for an item, please do not hesitate to contact me with the details of your order.

Can I get a refund?

If someone is unhappy with a product, I am willing to issue a refund within 30 days after the purchase. This gives you enough time to try it out and see if you really like it. I know how it feels to be unhappy because something you ordered online isn't what you expected.

What kind of product support do you provide?

I currently offer email support to customers. I use this software myself, and I am more than happy to offer support and help for anyone with questions on how to use one of these product. Just drop me a message if you have any questions.

What is PayPal and can I pay another way?

PayPal is a way to send and receive payments securely online. You do not have to have a PayPal account - you can pay with a credit card by choosing "continue checkout" instead.

Unforunately I cannot accept other kinds of payments at this time.
