Order FAQ

If you have the latest version of IconWorkshop 6.90 or later, yes, you can activate the trial with the product key.

Otherwise, you have to download the full version using the link provided in the confirmation email and install it over the trial version.

No. We deliver our products as download (a.k.a. ESD) only.

We want you to make the best purchase decision. Therefore, we recommend that you take advantage of our free trial software downloads. We also encourage you to explore the product pages of our website to obtain comprehensive product information.

In the event that you need to return an Axialis product, you must make your request within 30 days of purchase. Additionally, Axialis reserves the right to deny a refund in the case of a non-authenticated purchase (no order#, bad name or address...).

To request a refund for your downloaded (ESD) software purchase, please contact us. In your message, you should explain what the problem was and why you want to return the product, include your order#, name, e-mail address and the product key (if any). You will find the order# and the product key in the purchase confirmation e-mail. We expect that you have destroyed all downloaded files and have not been copied or saved in any other way. You will be asked to sign a letter of destruction and return it (by fax or postal mail) before you receive your refund amount. If you've ordered a Backup CD, you'll be asked to physically destroy it. Your product key will be invalidated on our server and associated services won't be accessible anymore.

Once your refund request has been reviewed, we receive the Letter of Destruction, and we approve the refund; we will send our consent to process the refund to SWREG. We will contact you by email to confirm the refund process has been launched. Your refund will be credited to the credit card charged during your original transaction within a few days.

You'll be refunded of the paid amount without fees. However, the Backup USB fees (if you have chosen this option) are not refundable.

European customers ONLY have to pay local VAT.

SWREG®, our payment prider, is located in the USA. Since July 2003, European customers have to pay VAT for ESD goods purchased in the USA. The VAT rates vary from one country to each other in Europe.

However, companies who specify a EU VAT number at checkout do not pay VAT.

All major credit cards are accepted: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diner's Club...

Yes, this is an option that you can choose at checkout.
