What is the Extended Download Service (EDS)?
EDS essentially allows you to download your purchase again for up to two (2) years, in the event your computer crashes or the downloaded file becomes damaged or corrupt. It can be thought of as an insurance policy in case anything goes wrong with your computer or the downloaded product. When you have downloadable items in your order, you will see a link to add EDS to your order on the shopping cart page or the checkout page. Upon payment of the specified fee, Digital River, Inc. ("DR") agrees to provide you (the "End User") a service that enables the End User to make multiple downloads of digital computer software products (a "Product" or "Products") purchased in a single order (an "Order") and downloaded from this Web site (the "Site") for a period of two (2) years after the date the End User purchases the Product (the "Service"). Click here for full details about EDS.

To purchase EDS for download products in a completed order, you must look up your order and complete an additional purchase.

When will my credit card be charged?
For purchases of downloaded products, your credit card will be charged within a day of the completion of your order.

For purchases of physical products, if you purchased using a credit card, you won't be billed until your product is shipped. This includes any backordered products. If your items are shipped separately you will be billed each time a product is shipped.

If you have preordered a digital or physical product using a credit card, you won’t be billed until the product is released and/or shipped.

Please note that online statements for credit cards and debit cards may display a pre-authorization of funds immediately after purchase. Pre-authorizations are typically removed from your credit card transaction history when the full charge processes and funds are withdrawn. However, in some cases, this process can take up to 2 business days for credit cards and 7 business days for debit cards. If you need assistance removing a pre-authorization from your card transaction history, please contact your bank or financial institution.

Do I have to pay sales tax?

Depending on the order, sales tax may be calculated and charged. Any sales tax charged will be indicated once your billing and/or shipping address have been entered during checkout.

The price indicated includes anticipated VAT that we will collect from you based on information you make available to us. The total price may change during the course of the shopping session depending on a number of factors. However, you will have the opportunity to review the final price we will charge before you submit your order. A national VAT rate will be applied on physical goods for customers based in EU countries. This VAT may not be shown as a separate charge during checkout and may instead be included in the product price (VAT inclusive pricing).

If you are based in the EU and are purchasing for a company registered for VAT, you may not have to pay VAT on your purchase. Please enter your VAT exemption number when prompted during the purchase process. To be prompted for a VAT exemption number, be sure to enter a Company Name when entering your billing information. When your VAT exemption number has been validated, your VAT will be automatically updated to zero, if applicable. In the event that your order does not qualify for VAT exemption, we will not be able to remove this charge from the order.

Tax-exempt individuals and entities in the United States can request a refund of the tax paid on an order. We will need a copy of your tax-exempt certificate and the billing or shipping address on the order must match the address on the certificate. You can fax a copy of your certificate, with order number or invoice to 952-253-8760.
