CANCELLATIONS, REFUNDS & RETURNS
Due to the digital nature of all purchases, we do not offer refunds. Digital files cannot be returned.
WordPress.com does not allow any third-party or custom themes to be uploaded. Therefore, Hearten Made themes cannot be used on WordPress.com and require a self-hosted WordPress.org site. This is noted on every theme listing page, in our FAQ, and several other areas around our site. Refunds are not available for purchasers whose sites are on WordPress.com. If you’d like to switch from WordPress.com to self-hosted WordPress.org, click here to learn how.
WordPress.com Business Plan: This new plan comes with the ability to upload themes. However, we cannot offer customizations to themes installed on the WordPress.com Business Plan. WordPress.com does not provide access to backend files, which makes it impossible to make theme customizations and troubleshoot. When installing a theme on WordPress.com, please do so at your own risk and understand that theme support is limited.
Our support team is here to help answer questions pertaining to any Hearten Made themes and theme setup and installation.
Any further customizations or code changes to themes is not covered under our provided support. This includes, but is not limited to: font changes, font sizes and styles, removing/adding any elements, structural changes, styling block elements, custom home pages, logo resizing, content width resizing, etc.
Support is not always provided for customers who remove the Hearten Made site credit from the footer.
Support is NOT provided for 3rd party plugins that were not recommended for the theme you purchased.
We do not provide support for setting up a WooCommerce shop.
We do not provide support on how to use email marketing services.
Plugins that I recommend for each theme are also not completely supported by me. This is because I do not create the plugins. My themes are simply styled to match them. If it’s a design-related issue to match the theme, I’m happy to help. But if it’s an issue with the plugin’s functionality, my support can be somewhat limited and I might refer you to that particular plugin’s support team.
You may remove the Hearten Made footer credit link from your theme footer. This is allowed. However, theme support is not offered for sites on which the credit link has been removed. Please remove the Hearten Made credit link at your own risk.

You may make code changes to any Hearten Made theme you purchased. However, theme support is not offered for sites where the theme’s code has been altered in any way. This includes, but is not limited to, any CSS, HTML, PHP, JS code changes.
