Do you offer refunds?

Created by Sam Acres, Modified on Mon, 26 Jun 2023 at 03:10 PM by Sam Acres

Our general refund policy, including information about why and when we do and don't issue refunds.

For a recent renewal, see our Renewals section below. 


As per our Terms & Conditions, given the nature of downloadable digital items, we do not generally offer a refund or credit on a purchase unless required under Australian consumer law or other relevant consumer protection laws. If you would like to request a refund or credit on a purchase, please email, or use the chat in the bottom right hand corner.


We will assess refund or credit requests on their merits, considering the digital nature of Teach Starter downloads. There is no obligation to provide a refund or credit in situations like the following:


  • you have changed your mind about a subscription;

  • you ask for goodwill;

  • you bought a subscription by mistake;

  • you do not have sufficient expertise to use the subscription.


While we try to alert users of their upcoming renewal, we understand that emails may go to spam, or life simply gets in the way. Please contact to request a refund if:

a) Your subscription has only recently been renewed (within the last 3 weeks), and

b) You have not downloaded any resources since the renewal occurred.


Note that refunds typically take 3-5 business days to process, and if the refund is issued the same day as the original payment was made, the funds may return as a reversal in your bank account rather than a refund. 


Refunds cannot be made to a payment method other than the original method used for payment. If your credit card has been cancelled during this time, please contact your bank.
