The Welkin Suite IDE can be used on a monthly or yearly basis, with an option to renew the license automatically.

The renewal period depends on the license period. If users have selected monthly payment during the purchase process, their licenses can be renewed in one month. If an annual payment was selected, the license will be renewed in one year after its activation.

In case the users have disabled the auto renewal, and then enabled again it before the license has expired, the license will be kept renewed automatically.
Each user of the Professional and/or Enterprise License in The Welkin Suite IDE can request a refund to cancel the yearly subscription. To do so, the user needs to contact The Welkin Suite’s Support Team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. A member of our team will then contact the user to clarify all the necessary details, and will check the possibility of refunding user’s order in accordance with our End-User License Agreement (EULA), which is available here - link.
The Welkin Suite’s Refund Policy implies providing the refund for the unused months in the purchased subscription for The Welkin Suite IDE. As it is implied in our EULA, the official usage period begins immediately upon activation of the license. The month of usage begins once the license became active and is displayed in ‘My Products’ section on our website. One month of usage equals one calendar month, starting from the purchase date.
Please note that the Refund Policy applies to the yearly subscription for The Welkin Suite IDE only. Those users, who have selected the monthly pricing scheme, will be able to disable the automatic auto-renewal if they would like to cancel their subscription, with no refund made for ongoing months and the subscription being stopped starting from the next month.
All of the refunds are calculated in the following way:
- Users can only be refunded for the months that has not been regarded as ‘used’ in The Welkin Suite license. Users cannot be refunded for the months in which the usage period has officially begun.
- The month is regarded as ‘used’ starting from the date the original purchase was made - any ongoing month after the purchase date is considered as ‘used’.
- The refunded amount is calculated as the number of used months multiplied by the monthly subscription price subtracted from the price of the yearly subscription plan.
- Users will be refunded for the overall number of months in their subscription, in which the usage period has not yet begun.
E.g. the user purchased the yearly Professional subscription on January 15th for 150.00 USD (as it is stated in The Welkin Suite’s Pricing Agreement). On April 20th, the user wanted to cancel his/her subscription and requested a refund. According to The Welkin Suite’s policy, the number of used months equals four months, as the date the refund was requested has already surpassed the purchase date, and April is now regarded as used month. Thus, the user will be refunded for 8 months that were unused. The price for a monthly subscription in the Professional plan is 15.00 USD. Therefore, the refunded amount will equal 90.00 USD, as 150 - 15x4 = 90.
Once The Welkin Suite team confirms the possibility of making a refund for user’s order, and calculates the refunded amount, the team will manually make a refund. Users will be refunded within a week from the date our team confirms the refund. The money will be returned following the same payment method the customer used when purchasing the product.
The auto-renewal can be disabled or enabled at any moment during the period when the license is active. Those who have disabled it will be informed in advance about the upcoming license expiration date. This way, the users who would like to continue using The Welkin Suite IDE, will need to prolong the subscription by themselves or activate the auto- renewal. Otherwise, the license will be deactivated on its expiration date.
All given discounts are applied to the monthly subscription price when calculating the refunded amount.
