I'm asking now when Will my $61 be refunded?
as you can see the situation I advise you please purchase more reliable sites.
I purchased a theme from themeforest a week ago, theme was badly done, many bugs and errors, I requested a refund and the author refused, I contacted support and they disabled my account telling me there is no refund for me, so to recap, I bought a theme called (Classiads - Classified Ads WordPress Theme), theme had many problems, requested a refund and my account gets disabled, I won't be dealing with themeforest anymore
I want my money back but I can't and these people do not even have a half decent support!
This company is a crapshoot. They claim that they will give you a refund if an item is not as described. "Item is "not as described"
An item is "not as described" if it is materially different from the item description or preview so you should expect the author to "tell it like it is" when it comes to the features and functionality of items. If it turns out the item is "not as described" you will be entitled to a refund."
That's their policy but they do not enforce it when you wish to get a refund. Nope, the support agent Vhon said this to me: "I have checked the form on my end, however, it still appears that the status is "In Progress", even though he specified that he's not granting the refund, it only means that the author has not yet finalized the decision of your request.
Note: Envato can only step-in to review your plea once a dispute has been raised. Dispute only applies if the author does not respond after a 5 day period AEST or if they have declined your request for a refund."
This is illegal, because what this allows is for any seller on this site to keep a buyer in limbo from getting their money by replying back to the buyer on and on OR simply not declining the request. This is a scam, plain and simple. And if I had known this, I wouldn't have bought on the site the first place.
With that in mind, my story is like: I found a wordpress theme I really liked for my portfolio that claimed I could set up in minutes thanks to drag n drop. Envato add on a 2$ for the Paypal fee which is against Paypal's TOS big time. I thought the fee was only for credit cards which is the norm but it's not. When I tried to set up the theme with the demo content, it was fine, but when I tried to edit them to set up my portfolio, I found out that it was way too difficult but I found myself forced to use the plugins else it wouldn't look as pictured, thus the item not as described. I contacted the seller thinking that they would understand but no, they were rude, unprofessional, sassed me, basically mansplained what plugins were (I've worked with Wordpress since 2010, I know what plugins do), the hours of theme making is, and said that since it was the plugin at fault, not their theme, it wouldn't be refunded. They kept my request as in progress and the support agent saw this when I tried to bring it up higher. They said they couldn't do anything about it.
So when I went to raise a dispute in Paypal after replying to the support agent that this system was bogus, very much illegal, promising that I will be taking my business elsewhere and to get my refund either way due to paying with Amex, I found myself locked out of my account.
This is their pattern, they refuse to help you and instead let them and the seller take the money. Look around on the internet, this is outrageously illegal.
You can imagine how livid how I was when I found out I was locked out of my account all for standing up to their shady practices and policies. I already managed to take screenshots, but doing this shows they don't give a flying flip, they just want the money. If i had known the horrors, I would've stayed to another site I use.
Finally having enough, I escalated the report to a claim on Paypal to get my money back and while I can go straight to Amex still, they need to stop bullying people who are too busy to handle this situation, instead letting them keep the money.
No, that's not how a service works. No legit business would pull this. I told you I was going to make you hate me, Envato. The more I spread this, the more people will be aware to stay far far away from your terrible business practices, if one can call it that :)
It is advertised as having 100+ demos/home pages to build off of, but once you download it, there's only 87 for $69. The developer is tvlgiao and their reply to my ticket was, "their coming soon once they finish them".
I asked for a refund and they quit replying to my ticket. I gave them a 1 star review, which they deleted or theme forest deleted since this developer has a lot of sales and brings in money for theme forest. I have since re-done my review, but I'm sure it will get deleted too, so I'm curious just how many 1 star reviews this theme/developer really has. I have disputed my refund with theme forest and am waiting for their decision. It says whatever they decide is final, so if they allow false advertising from a developer just because they bring in a lot of revenue via sales, we will have to file a dispute with PayPal next.
