Regarding Subscriptions and Renewals
You may provide certain repetitive services through your virtual store. Services which require one transaction to be done by the user, but multiple benefits qualify as subscriptions. For example, you may provide a daily newspaper service, to avail which, the user has to purchase the same for a fixed period of time. The user does a transaction once at the start of the term, and you have to fulfil your commitment, in this case by delivering newspapers to the user every day.
If a subscription is terminated mid-term, the user will be issued a partial refund depending on the amount of the term remaining. Alternatively, you may list a subscription as a renewal. Renewals are the same as subscriptions, but do not give the user partial refunds if they terminate the subscription mid-way. You can use these to provide fixed services like broadband internet, gym membership, etc.
In the case on non-renewal type services, the user will be able to defer the next delivery. If they choose to do so, you will be intimated by email, or text, or in the web app. When a user defers a delivery, you shall not perform the next scheduled delivery, and extend the term of the subscription by one unit of time depending on the case. For example, if the user is engaged with your daily newspaper service, and chooses to defer the next delivery, you shall not deliver the newspaper to him on the next day, and the term of the subscription will then automatically increase by one day to make up for the deferred delivery.
Renewals cannot be deferred or cancelled as stated above.
Clearly state time period, full extent of your commitment, and all other necessary details about the subscription in the description of the listing.
Fulfil your commitments in strict accordance to the commitment promised by you in the description of a service.
