Payment, Refunds, Upgrading and Downgrading Terms
- A valid credit card is required for paying accounts.
- When you sign up for free, your website will be made available on a temporary sub domain name such as name.realtyninja.com. When you are ready to launch the website live you will need to enter payment on your account before the website will be available at a full domain name (such as www.name.com).
- Your credit card will be billed every month or every year depending on the option you chose when activating your account.
- The Service is billed in advance on a monthly or yearly basis, depending on the option you chose when paying for your account, and is non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial periods of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for periods of time unused with a paid account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.
- All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties.
- For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, your credit card that you provided will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle.
- Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of Content, features, or capacity of your Account. RealtyNinja does not accept any liability for such loss.
- If the credit card on your account is unable to be processed, or if your account is delinquent, we will attempt to notify you and provide a 2 week grace period for you to re-enter your payment details. If payment is not received within 2 weeks; your website may be locked, unavailable, deleted or disabled until payment on your account is setup. RealtyNinja does not accept any liability for such loss.
Customer Referral Rewards Program
- This is a "Give 10% off Get 10% off" program. When you refer a friend to RealtyNinja, your friend gets a 10% off coupon code to use when they launch, and you automatically get 10% off when your friend launches as well.
- This program is for paying customers with launched websites or IDX accounts only. Trial accounts are not eligible. Once you've launched you will see a new section in the backend of your account (Under "Account > Referral Rewards") which contains your referral program widget.
- Once you're a paying customer, you will have your own unique link to share with friends. This link will be associated with your account and must be used by your friends in order to receive discounts. Your friend must also enter the coupon code presented to them when paying to launch their account.
- Discounts are stackable, starting at 10% and going up to 100% off. For example, 3 friends = 30% off, 10 friends = 100% off.
- Discounts get added and removed automatically. If your friend cancels their account then you lose the 10% discount associated with that friend.
- Discounts are revoked after 2 weeks if subscriptions expire. If expired accounts are unable to re-activate within a 2 week period they will lose all discounts associated with the account permanently.
- Discounts are not transferrable between accounts under any circumstances. If an account is disabled all associated discounts will expire. This includes migrations from one account to another.
- Self-referrals are possible. Use your own unique link when signing up to claim subsequent discounts on your current and new accounts.
- After reaching a 100% discount you can still refer friends in order to create a "buffer" for discounts, but you will not be paid for referrals. Please consider our affiliate program if you're interested in making money selling accounts.
- Referral discounts are only applicable towards recurring subscription fees, and not one-time fees (such as design services).
- This program is effective from April 8, 2019 and does not include prior referrals. Only new accounts created after this date are eligible.
- Existing coupons/discounts are not affected by this program and will stack. If you have an existing discount it will be combined with any discount from this program, which may result in you getting a 100% discount before referring 10 paying accounts.
- This program is limited to Listings-Only (IDX) accounts and full website customers using a katana theme (our newest theme platform). If you are using our older themes (such as Shinobi, Element, Classic, etc.) this program is not available and we recommend that you upgrade your website to Katana for free. By default, agents that signed up after December 2017 are all using a Katana theme. If you're not sure what theme your website is using you can always contact us at email@example.com.
