# How to remove VAT (TVA) during the Payment?
You have to provide your VAT ID during the purchase. Before completing the order you will have an opportunity to enter a business VAT ID:
# I would like not to pay the VAT because I'm an EU professional
When entering your order, once the company name field is populated, you would be given an opportunity to enter your VAT ID for verification on the final order page. Once this is done, VAT would be exempted from your order.

# We are an Non-Profit-Organization, do you have a special discount?
We support the community with our free extensions.

We have been already contacted by several users claiming to belong to a Non-Profit-Organization, that in a second stage purchased extensions for commercial usage.
Finally, our software is provided with full source code and we need to protect ourselves from fraudulent users who look for the extension with the sole intent of distributing unauthorized copies.
# We are an Non-Profit-Organization and we can't buy the extension without test, send us the source code
Our customers purchase subscriptions to have access to the extension. If we begin to distribute the extension for free, then it is not fair to our customers and it ends our business life cycle.
Our software is provided with full source code and we need to protect ourselves from fraudulent users who look for the extension with the sole intent of distributing unauthorized copies.

We offer many ways to evaluate our software, including free access to our documentation and extension specifications, the ability to ask pre-sales questions through our Contact Us (opens new window) page, demo sites and free versions of some of our popular components.
Under no circumstances, we issue refunds when the extension does not have the feature you are looking for and does not do what you want.

We only issue full refunds under the acceptable grounds (opens new window). When we fail to provide you have a technical issue unrelated to hosting setup and we fail to provide you with a viable alternative or a development release with a fix for this issue within 8 workdays. We are talking about severe bugs with our software which we fail to fix in due time.
