According to the latest policy set by Envato, customer support is time sensitive. That means six months of customer support is included in your purchase of any of the Artbees themes from Envato, and Artbees is committed to offering full customer service during this period. After the initial six months, in order to continue using Artbees Support you need to renew your support subscription.
For more information, read the Purchasing supported items article from Envato.
Checking your support subscription status
To check the status on your support subscription:
The cost of the support subscription is calculated as a percentage of the theme price and is determined by when you make the support purchase.
The cost is as follows:
- At initial theme purchase – 37.5% of the theme price
- During the support period – 62.5% of the theme price
- After the support has expired – 87.5% of the theme price
Extending the support
To extend the support subscription:
If you have purchased multiple licenses for one theme, only your last purchase date will be counted so you do not have to renew the support subscription for older licenses. Make sure to always add your latest purchase code in the Artbees portal.
If you are a verified customer of Artbees Themes and you have registered 10 or more licenses of any of our themes you will enjoy lifetime support regardless of your support subscription status. VIPs will enjoy a much faster ticket response, as well as many more premium features that will be released one by one in the future. Previous VIP members who had 5+ licenses registered before 1st May 2019 will still be considered as VIP members.
VIPs will have access to the chat support from their Artbees Portal dashboard.
A list of common questions which you may face during support extension. The list will be updated regularly.
Open tickets while support is expired
If there is already an open ticket for Artbees support and your support expires in the middle of it, you will be able to continue sending and replying to messages until the issue is resolved.
Reporting a bug while support is expired
A support ticket can be opened if its type is set to Bug report. You can also visit Artbees community forum, which is available to everyone regardless of their support subscription status.
Updating the theme while support is expired
You will have access to all theme and plugin updates when they are released. Support subscription status does not affect this.
