Order Information

  • What is my order status?
  • What is the Extended Download Service (EDS)?
    EDS essentially allows you to download your purchase again for up to EDS_TIME_PERIOD, 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 EDS_TIME_PERIOD after the date the End User purchases the Product (the "Service").

  • What payment methods can I use?
    CS_ORDER_INFO_PAYMENT_METHODS_AVAILABLE_GENERIC
  • Should I use spaces or dashes when I enter my credit card number?
    No. Enter your credit card number without any spaces or special characters. It should be entered as a continuous string of numbers.
  • Does my billing address have to match the address on file with my credit card?
    Yes. For credit card verification you must enter your billing address exactly as it appears on your credit card statement.
  • Why is my credit card being rejected?
    There are many possible reasons for a credit card not being accepted:
    • The card has expired.
    • You have reached or exceeded your credit limit.
    • You have exceeded your daily charge limit.
    • A computer at either end of the transaction is having technical problems.

    If you have problems submitting your credit card payment you can contact Customer Service for help. When contacting Customer Service, please include any error message numbers you received, as well as the order number seen in the shopping cart.

  • 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.

  • How will the charge appear on my credit card?
    The charge for your order will appear on your credit card as: "CHARGE_DESCRIPTOR"
  • 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.

    TAX_INFO_FAQ 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 DR_US_FAX_NUMBER.

Product Recycling Information

  • What are recycling (WEEE) fees in Europe?
    What is this fee?

    Many states, provinces, and cities have passed laws that obligate manufactures and retailers to handle the cost and handling of end-of-life electronics and electrical goods (eWaste). Digital River and our suppliers adhere to all local recycling and environmental laws that impact the products we bring to the market.Many of these laws require recycling fees to be charged at the time of purchase. The recycling fee helps fund recycling facilities in your area and ensures that this service is available to you when a product reaches its end-of-life.

    Where does the money go?

    Fees collected for recycling are paid directly to the compliance agencies that coordinate recycling in your community. The compliance agencies then distribute the fees to the recycling facilities. Fees charged for products are separate from the membership fees manufactures pay to support the administration efforts of these recycling agencies.

    Why do I have to pay this fee?

    These fees go toward supporting recycling programs as mandated by law.However, in many states and provinces, the fees are already included in the product price and are not visible to the consumer.

  • How is battery recycling handled in Europe?
    eWaste should never be disposed of with normal household waste. Even with current environmental laws, many devices contain substances that are harmful to the environment and pose a public health risk.

    eWaste and batteries of any size or function can be responsibly recycled at your municipal recycling center. For Information on where to recycle in your state, please visit www.recyclingcenters.org/electronics_recycling.php

Copyright Levy Information

  • What are Copyright Levies in Europe?
    What is this fee?

    In accordance with European Union Directive 2001/29/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 May 2001 on the harmonisation of certain aspects of copyright and related rights in the information society, copyright levies are applicable on many products as part of an effort to protect both consumer rights and copyrighted materials.

    As a consumer, this directive protects your right to use private copying media and devices, such as MP3 players, video recorders, and reprographic devices such as copiers, printers and scanners to copy any song, image, or newspaper article that you choose. It also ensures that the artists and writers who hold the copyright on these protected materials are reimbursed for the expanded use of their items.

    For each country that has adopted this law, a national society manages private copying and reprographic matters, determines the products that are impacted, and sets the fee values for those products.

    The fees are mandatory by law and are collected at the time of sale.

    Where does the money go?

    Private copying and reprography levies are paid directly to the national societies that manage these matters in each country. The societies then distribute the funds directly to the registered copyright holders in each country.
