Payments for Websites will be made in advance with 50% non refundable deposit to commission and 50% on completion before hand over to the client. Once the site is commissioned the client is agreeing that the site will be built as agreed to the details on email. Once complete the customer will be allowed 2 hours of edits included. The customer will also be fully liable for the final payment if site is completed. The ‘completion’ of the site will be the decision of Thrive Media. Payment must be made in full within 14 days of the site being completed. Any invoices not paid within the required timeframe may be subject to a 20% increase at the discretion of Thrive Media

All website edits following our first draft to clients must be sent on one email.

Payments for all other digital marketing must be made in full before any work is undertaken.

Unless alternative agreements are agreed, all payments are taken in advance for the upcoming month via Direct Debit, Bank Transfer or Phone Card Payment to head office. Upon sign-up, clients enter into a monthly rolling agreement and payments will be taken on the same day every month until the client cancels the agreement in writing.

The first payment will be taken within 5 working days of sign-up, and on the same day (or around this date) every month thereafter. Clients must write to Thrive at least five working days before their next payment is due if they’d like to cancel, or will be liable to pay the next month’s payment before their service terminates. If payment is not received for the upcoming month for whatever reason, content is immediately suspended until the payment is received.

Note that the payment date and content start date may differ – we might start posting content on January 1 but not receive payment until January 6 or vice versa depending on your responsiveness to our initial content draft. Thrive Media must receive a written request to cancel on whichever date is first (payment due or the start of your next content cycle) or you will be liable to pay for the following month once we begin producing content.

Thrive does not offer refunds – once the payment has been taken for any of our digital marketing services as we will have initialed the preparation of the forthcoming content.

Thrive will ensure as well as possible that the adverts are effective and generate the required results, however no guarantees of results can be given. No refunds are available under any circumstances for ad set up costs or percentage of ad spend budgets.

Once websites are complete, Thrive allows two hours of time for any edits to the site. All edits must be sent one one single comprehensive email and all edits included in that individual email with clear instructions. Any additional changes may be charge at the discretion of Thrive.

Sites that include multiple pages will be built with pages that contain reasonable content. Each page is designed to offer several images and text. For more complicated page content please advise more detail before you commission a site and pay a deposit.

Payment for all sites will be made in full or in two parts, 50% on commission and 50% before the website is handed over to the client. The deposit is non refundable and once the work is complete the balance is due in its entirety within 14 days of completion. Three hours of amends will be provided with every site with additional hours charged at £40 per hour for completion.

On some plans, we may respond to client comments if necessary, although questions we cannot answer will be left for the account holder to monitor.
