Do you offer refunds?

Yes, there's a 14 day money back guarantee so if you purchase the plugin and decide you no longer want it, just drop me a line.

Will this plugin work with my theme?

All my plugins are independent of the theme being used so there shouldn't be any problems. If you do run into any issues, just let me know and I will take a look.
