Your payment will be taken 2-4 days before the due date on the invoice to ensure that you have no downtime in the case of a credit card payment failure (e.g. when a card expires).
Under no circumstances will services used be refunded. If you have made an order in error then we may refund part or whole of the order at our discretion.
You may cancel your email hosting services at any time. If you cancel your email hosting then we will not take any further payments from your payment method and we will terminate your mailboxes.
It is important that we receive payment on time for our hosting services. All services must be paid for by the due date shown on the invoice unless a written adjustment has been agreed or you have cancelled your email hosting services.

Changes of details
We reserve the right to change our services in the future and the way you access them. Typically this would be an upgraded environment for you, the customer.
Changes to DNS
If you grant our engineer access to your domain registrar account they will make the required DNS change and then inform you of the ways in which you can check your mail. We strongly suggest that you change the password on your domain registrar account after this change. We take no responsibility for lost mail or loss of business due to email downtime or DNS propagation.
We will endeavour to ensure that email downtime is kept to a minimum. We take no responsibility for lost business or money due to email hosting downtime. We will always try to inform you of any scheduled maintenance.
Spam and Fair Use
Our email service is provisioned via a 3rd party platform (OpenSRS) under a white label reseller program whose rules we all must abide by. You – the customer agrees to the terms and conditions of OpenSRS which can be found here.
- You cannot use our services in any manner associated with the transmission, distribution, or delivery of spam (unsolicited mail of any kind) or illegal materials.
- Any Email user who sends spam will have their account disabled and be disallowed further service.
If your domain is associated with previous spam or illegal activity then we will be unable to grant you access to our servers. We will also fine you no less than $500 (depending on the level of spam activity) for our time and the costs we face when people send spam from our server. We take spam very seriously and will not tolerate unsolicited email in any format.
If you have a paid account with us you can have up to 10 email forwarders. Contact support for setting these up.
Note – if you previously set up email forwarders on Shopify – then these will stop working when you use Shopped email. They will need to be set up again.
If during the signup process you give us access to Shopify store for making DNS changes then we will copy your existing email forwarders over.

Cancellation notices for all services must be given at least 48 hours in advance of the next billing date.
A breach of any of our terms and conditions may result in immediate termination with no refund.
