ii. Subscription, payment terms

a) Payment

Scheduled membership subscription payments by your nominated credit card are automatically processed via Stripe, based on the subscription period your choose when you signed up. To learn more about Stripe and it’s security protocols and the protection of your data please visit the Stripe website.

Payment All prices and dollar amounts on this Website are in Australian dollars.

We reserve the right to stop accepting credit cards from one or more issuers.

By submitting a credit card number to Stripe via Australian Hunters Club you are representing and warranting that the credit card information you provide is valid, authentic, current, and one that you are authorized to use it.

You agree that in the event the credit card information you have provided becomes invalid, out of date or that you are no longer authorized to use the card, you will immediately provide another credit card number that is valid, authentic and current, and which you are authorized to use. Credit card information can be changed via the accounts page.

Some electronic transactions may require extended processing in addition to credit card authorization. This may affect to your access to member content or restricted members areas.

b) Failed payments.

If a charge against a credit card you provide is not authorized or accepted, or is subsequently refused or rejected, we reserve the right to cancel your order without notice or liability.

When a scheduled credit card payment fails the Australian Hunters Club website commences a payment retry process which can take up to 8 days to complete fully. During this process the users membership is temporally suspending, along with their access to membership content and will not be eligible for giveaways. During this period the a membership plan will be marked as either ‘pending‘ or ‘paused‘ and subsequent subscription as ‘on hold‘ in the users account page.

The retry system works by applying a set of retry rules whenever a renewal payment fails. The full set of retry rules defines the specific behaviour of the retry process between the first failure and finally declaring the payment as failed and no longer attempting to process the payment. The general retry process proceeds like this:

  1. Automatic recurring payment fails.
  2. The website checks if a retry rule exists for this specific payment failure.
  3. If a rule exists, it is applied and Subscriptions will:
    • schedule a pending retry event to occur after a set period of time
    • set the status on the subscription to match the status defined by the rule
    • set the status on the order to match the status defined by the rule
    • email the customer the email defined by the rule
    • email store managers the email defined by the rule
  4. When the scheduled time for the retry event arrives, the website will retry the payment if:
    • the retry still has a status of pending
    • the order still requires payment
    • status on the subscription matches the status defined by the rule previously applied
    • status on the order matches the status defined by the rule previously applied
  5. If the payment fails on this retry attempt, steps 2 through 4 are repeated until there are no more retry rules.

If no rule exists, either because the all retry rules have been exhausted or the retry system cannot be applied to the renewal order, the renewal order is marked failed and the customer is sent the Customer Renewal Notification email.

To regain access to the membership the customer will need to log in to the website and reactive their membership subscription via the subscription page in the accounts section, by adding in a valid credit card. Failure to do so in a timely fashion will result in the membership being canceled. Instructions will be sent to the user outlining this process and dates required for payment.

c) Reoccurring billing.

Membership products consist of a recurring period charges as agreed to by you. By choosing to purchase a membership subscription plan, you acknowledge that such Services have a recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. All recurring payments are fully earned upon payment. You can learn more about your subscription billing frequency via the subscriptions information accessed via your account page.

Unless up or down graded, your subscription will be automatically extended for successive periods, at the then-current subscription rata.

c) Switching memberships/subscriptions

Users with active membership can upgrade and downgrade subscription members whenever they want.

To prevent misuse of this service, only members with profiles can use the members directory and view other members’ profiles.

Certain information visible on a member’s profile is automatically generated upon creation, such as their first name or state. Other fields require manual entry by the member during the profile creation process.

Each member can only have one profile at any given time. Profiles can be edited or deleted by the member at any point via the members account page. However, please note that deleting a profile may result in loss of access to the members directory.

  2. Monthly memberships: memberships with a monthly billing cycle are not eligible for a refund.
  3. Memberships automatically generated from a trial membership: If your trial membership upgrades to a full membership with an annual billing plan, beginning 91 days after your registration, you can request a partial refund within 7 days of the upgrade. This refund considers that you’ve enjoyed 3 months of benefits without charges, as trial memberships can be canceled anytime within the 90-day trial period without fees. The partial refund will equal to 9 months of the upgraded plan, minus payment gateway charges. Additionally, we offer the choice to replace the upgraded membership with a digital membership gift card of equal value or provide a free upgrade to another plan.

Digital membership gift card refunds

We reserve the right to not offer a refund on digital membership gift cards.

Physical Goods Refunds

We will accept returns of physical goods and provide you with a  refund or repair where:

  • The item is faulty or is not of acceptable quality, or
  • The item is not fit for its intended purpose, or
  • The product does not match the sample or our description; and
  • You can present a receipt or other adequate proof of purchase

In order to receive a refund you must first post the item back to us at your own cost. We will then cover the costs of sending you a new product in the event that the refund is eligible under Australian Consumer Law.

We may elect to return the product to the manufacturer’s repair agent to determine the nature of the problem. We reserve the right not to offer an exchange voucher, refund or repair where the item fault is a result of misuse or neglect.

Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair goods.
