7. Payment Terms

These Payment Terms apply to purchases you make from ZipIt. However, if you purchase our Services from one of our resellers instead of from us, then that reseller’s payment terms apply to your purchase instead of these Payment Terms. You agree to pay for what you buy

By purchasing a Paid Account, you agree to pay all charges in effect at that time for the Services you buy, along with all applicable taxes and other fees. You authorize ZipIt to charge your Payment Method for your initial purchase, as well as any future purchases and automatic renewals of any Paid Subscription.

If we are unable to charge your Payment Method (for example, because your credit card has expired), you are still responsible for paying us. Except as described under “Termination” below, all fees are non-refundable. All amounts are to be paid in US Dollars or UAE Dirhams unless another currency was specified when you made your purchase.

Automatic renewal and payment of subscriptions:

Most Paid Subscriptions are for an initial period of time, usually a month. At the end of this period, your Paid Subscription will be automatically renewed for the same duration as your initial subscription unless you cancel.

If you do not cancel before the end of your current subscription period, your Paid Subscription will be automatically renewed, you will be responsible for paying for the next subscription period, and you authorize ZipIt to charge your Payment Method at the current, full-price rate for your specific type of Paid Subscription.

A subscription will automatically renew at current prices unless you cancel it.

Cancelling Paid Subscriptions:

You may cancel your Paid Subscription at any time either on our website or by contacting ZipIt customer service. If you cancel before the end of your current monthly or annual subscription period, your subscription will not be renewed. You will not be entitled to a refund of any amount for the remaining time of your current Paid Subscription.

If ZipIt discontinues the Services that you have already paid for, we will give you a proportional refund of that amount for the remaining time in your current subscription period.

Change in authorized amount

The fees applicable to your Paid Account may change in the future. If the amount to be charged to your Account changes (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of state sales taxes, VAT, or similar taxes and fees), ZipIt will provide you with notice of the change and the new amount to be charged together with the date of the charge at least ten (10) days before the scheduled date of the transaction.

If your account fee changes, we’ll give you 10 days notice.

Free trials

ZipIt may offer trial subscriptions during which you may use a Paid Subscription for the time period specified in the trial offer (a “Trial Period”) prior to your Payment Method being charged. You will not receive a notice from us that your Trial Period has ended or that your Payment Method will then be charged. Unless you cancel your subscription prior to the end of the Trial Period, your Payment Method will be charged.

Trial subscriptions may not be combined with any other offer unless otherwise provided in the promotional offer. ZipIt reserves the right to restrict who is eligible for trial subscriptions.

We’ll notify you in advance, either through the Service or to the email address you have most recently provided to us, if we change the price of the Service. If there’s a specific length and price for your Service offer already in effect, that price will remain in force for that time. After the offer period ends, your use of the Service will be charged at the then-current price. If your Service is on a period basis (for example, monthly) with no specific length, we’ll notify you of any price change at least 30 days in advance.

Also, we may charge you up to the amount you’ve approved, and we’ll notify you in advance of the difference for recurring subscription Services.
