Our payment & refund policy

This payment and refund policy applies to only Digital Hitmen Pty Ltd (herein referred to as “Digital Hitmen”) and/or websites owned by Digital Hitmen (ABN = 47 615 326 639).

Our payment and refund policy has been devised to define the situations under which Digital Hitmen will accept service payments, provide a refund, the procedure for claiming a refund, and the agency’s responsibility in the circumstances resulting in such a claim.

By registering for any of our digital marketing services, you are declaring that you accept and agree to all the terms and conditions outlined in this payment and refund policy.

Note: all pricing is in Australian dollars and is exclusive of GST.

Payment policy

1. Payment models

We offer two different payment models:

1.1 Standard: When a client wishes to engage our web design and development services and signs a service contract, we request a specified deposit fee upfront once the contract is signed, and the remaining funds are invoiced after every completed milestone of the project.

1.2 Recurring: This payment model is typically offered for recurring SEO services, which involve monthly on-page and off-page updates. The client agrees to pay in full upfront every month before we commence our tasks.

2. Payment methods

We offer the following payment methods to all our clients:

2.1 Direct deposit (preferred): Digital Hitmen will issue an invoice through our accounting software, Xero, and the client agrees to transfer the agreed funds via direct deposit to our nominated bank account on the invoice.

2.2 Credit card: Digital Hitmen will issue an invoice through our online payment processor, Stripe, and the client agrees to pay via Visa, Mastercard or American Express using the Stripe platform. Note: a 1.95% fee is added to Stripe payments.

3. Payment failure

The client understands that if payment is not made by the due date their campaign will be halted until any outstanding payments are paid in full. You will be in default if you do not pay us when monies are due for payment or fail to comply with any other obligation under our business arrangements. Defaults will result in:

  • If you default under our agreement, we may send you a default notice. The notice will tell you what the default is and what you are required to do to correct it. You will have 5 business days to rectify the default.
  • If you do not comply with the default notice, then we may terminate the agreement with immediate effect and you become immediately liable to pay us all monies owing with interest on that amount from the due date until payment at the rate of 10%p.a calculated daily.
  • You agree to pay on default all costs and expenses incurred in exercising our rights of recovery from you if any and indemnify us against any losses resulting from the default.

4. Cancellation

Clients may cancel services by emailing info@digitalhitmen.com.au or calling 1300 615 252 to request a cancellation.

Cancellation will not take place until receipt of the cancellation request. Cancellation requests will only be processed at the end of each calendar month, and the client is liable to pay any outstanding fees as per the service contract.

5. Disputes

  • If you believe that a fee has been charged incorrectly, we request you to bring this to the attention of Digital Hitmen immediately.
  • Should a payment have been made incorrectly, this will be refunded within 3 business days or applied to a future service transaction at your discretion.
  • If you are unhappy with any dispute outcome we recommend that you then contact your financial institution to investigate the matter further.

Refund policy

1. Refund eligibility

1.1 Full refund: The client is eligible for a full refund if:

  • Digital Hitmen fails to initiate the project after 10 days of contract signing and deposit payment.
  • The client decides to cancel the project within 3 days after contract signing and deposit payment.

1.2 Partial refund: If Digital Hitmen fails to deliver as per the agreed project scope, we’ll refund your fees in proportion to the work completed.

1.3 No refund: The client is not eligible for any refund if:

  • The project has been completed/deployed/transferred.
  • All the project files are transferred to the client.
  • The client breaches the contract at any point during the project.

2. Filing a refund claim
