Specific Refund Situations
Grace Period Refunds
Topaz Labs is no longer offering what we refer to as "Grace Period" refunds. This simply means that when a product, item, or adjustment goes on sale, we will not adjust a previous purchase price to match that discount. If you attempt to place an order and have issues, we will ensure you receive the promotion price you reached out about, even if it ends while we're fixing things for you. Refunds will still be processed within 3 to 5 business days, and will not be processed until the end of a sale period to avoid circumventing this restriction.
Larger Discount Difference Refunds
Topaz Studio will be introducing a new way to purchase the technology we make. In this new system, we want to ensure that everyone has a fair chance at a discount, should we be offering it. The truth is, when we make adjustments to orders based on current promotions, other customers have to subsidize your purchase, which is not fair to them. In the name of fairness, these refunds will not be offered.
We will refund your order, if requested within 15 days of your date of purchase from the Topaz Studio Web Store. Any refunds requested within the 15 day period which are unable to be processed within that 15 day period will be considered eligible for a refund. If you purchased more than 15 days prior to your request for a refund or exchange for another product, you will not be eligible for a refund.
If you have accidentally purchased a product you did not want, purchased a product twice, or paid for an update that you already owned, we will refund your purchase as quickly as possible. You will be subject to the 15 day refund period limitation above.
Topaz Labs has several authorized resellers of our products. These resellers sell the product to their own customers, who then come to the Topaz Labs site to register that purchase with our system. Purchases made in this manner cannot be directly refunded! Instead, buyers will need to request refunds of these types directly from the party they purchased from. Here is a list of authorized resellers that we work with:
Note: We are not accepting new resellers at this time. Also, if you were sold our product by any other party than one listed above, your purchase will not be registered to your account.
