BEFORE I BUY?

Credit/Debit Card (Stripe): Pay using your credit or debit card.
Apple Pay (Stripe): Pay with your finger or face or something like that, select the Stripe option when checking out.
PayPal: Pay using your PayPal account. For most countries a PayPal account is not required to simply purchase items; you can checkout as a guest using a credit/debit card either through PayPal or the Credit Card gateway. PayPal sometimes rejects valid credit/debit cards. If this occurs, trying again or using an alternate credit/debit card can help… Or simply try the Credit Card gateway provided at checkout. Unfortunately, PayPal requires users in some countries (such as New Zealand) to create an account, even for simple purchases. This is out of our control.

This is massively very rare, but if you’re having trouble with corrupted, broken, file does not exist or similar issues, it’s usually because the download didn’t finish completely.

If you’re still having trouble, please let us know by submitting a support ticket from within your account with the details of your issue and we’ll do our best to help you out.

We currently can’t offer support via email as we have developers based all around the world and we’ve found that email isn’t reliable enough for requests as they can fall through the gaps with a large team.
We do pride ourselves on the level of support that we provide, so please bear with us if you don’t receive an immediate reply. We always aim to reply within 24 hours but it may take a little longer at weekends.
