When a customer chooses to activate their membership during checkout, they are acknowledging that they have read and understood the terms and conditions outlined in the company's Terms of Service. This is important because it ensures that the customer is aware of the rights and responsibilities that come with being a Blidz+ member. The company's Terms of Service provide a comprehensive overview of the benefits, limitations, and restrictions associated with the membership, and it is essential that customers familiarize themselves with these details to make the most of their membership.
4. Membership Eligibility and Registration
a. Age and residency requirements
To register for the Blidz+ Membership, you must be 18 years of age or older and reside in a market where Blidz is available (US, CA, AU).
b. Registration process
To register for the Blidz+ Membership, you must click the membership banner in the Blidz app, accept these Terms, and provide valid card payment information to start the trial. Upon successful registration, you will have access to all Blidz+ Membership benefits.
c. Account verification
You must have a valid Blidz account and provide a valid working payment card. We may verify your account and payment information to ensure compliance with our eligibility requirements.
5. Membership Fees and Payment Terms
a. Fee structure
The Blidz+ Membership fee is billed monthly. Your payment method will be charged the applicable fee at the beginning of each billing period, unless you cancel your membership before the next billing date.
b. Accepted payment methods
We accept credit and debit cards for payment, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. Your payment information will be securely processed by our payment provider, Stripe.
c. Authorization and Hold on Card
As part of the initiation of the Blidz+ Membership, Blidz Inc. may execute a provisional charge on the customer's card to verify its authenticity. Although this amount is typically reimbursed, should the customer neglect to cancel the subscription and consequently default on the payment for the ensuing period, this held amount may be appropriated towards the cost of membership renewal.
d. Consequences of Membership Termination on Checkout Benefits
When a customer activates the Blidz+ Membership during a product checkout, they gain immediate access to member-exclusive pricing. This modified pricing, along with the application of additional benefits such as free shipping and enhanced coupon usage, is intrinsically tied to their active membership. Thus, if a customer's membership is cancelled or not renewed due to non-payment, the associated membership benefits cease immediately. This could lead to potential cancellation of orders placed under the purview of these benefits.
e. Refund policy
The Blidz+ Membership fee is non-refundable, except for the first membership fee charge happening within 30 days. In exchange for the membership fee paid, the Blidz+ Program becomes effective immediately for the upcoming month and provides continuous benefits as specified. The cost and effort of Blidz in developing the Blidz+ Program as a whole is indivisible. Members are not entitled to request partial or complete refunds of the membership fees if the Blidz+ Program is paused or terminated due to any of the following reasons:
Members choose not to use the benefits provided in time, or voluntarily relinquish their rights to use the benefits due to personal reasons.
Members request a refund due to normal changes to the Blidz+ benefits, features, and services.
Members engage in fraudulent activities or abuse the Blidz+ Program, causing damage to Blidz and other members of Blidz.
By using the Blidz+ Membership program, you acknowledge and agree that no refunds will be issued under these circumstances.
f. Renewal terms and termination policy
You may cancel your Blidz+ Membership at any time through the app or by contacting our support team. If you do not cancel your membership, it will be automatically renewed on a monthly basis and the applicable fee will be charged to your provided payment method.
