This refund policy applies to plugin purchases made through the Unreal Engine Marketplace. It does not apply to Premium support plans, which have their own refund policies outlined here. It does not apply to any of our other games or products sold through other stores.
When it comes to issuing refunds, we adhere to the Marketplace FAQ for refund eligiblity. That is, you are eligible for a refund when Epic makes a determination that the product has a technical issue, misleading screenshots or misleading video content. You can view the full requirements for refund eligibility on the Marketplace FAQ page under "Refunds".
Because the Marketplace directly distributes source code to customers, it is often not possible for us to permit refunds outside the reasons that Epic Games directly allow for.
If you have not downloaded the product through the Epic Games Launcher, and you have not verified your receipt in the License Manager (which would give you access to the source code via GitLab), then you can request a "change of mind" refund within 14 days of your purchase.
When requesting a "change of mind" refund, please include your order ID (which will be something like A0000000000000000 found on your receipt) and send an email to email@example.com.
If you've downloaded the product through the Launcher, or you've had potential access to the source code through the License Manager, then we are not able to issue a refund.
The Marketplace directly distributes the source code of the plugin to you, DRM free, when you install the plugin through the Launcher. The License Manager allows you to directly download the source code from GitLab.
The nature of this type of distribution means that we have no way to ensure users do not continue to use the plugin or its source code after a refund has been processed.
If you are not eligible for a refund, or the product does not meet your expectations, we'd like to understand how we can either improve the product to meet your requirements, or improve our product descriptions to increase clarity around what a product does or does not do.
You can provide this feedback through any of our available support channels, or directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
