Purchases made on WordPress.com can be canceled and refunded during the refund period:

  • Domain registrations can be canceled within 48 hours of registration.
  • Plans and other purchases can be canceled within 30 days of purchasing.
  • If you used the domain credit to register a new domain as part of your plan, and the refund period for the registration has lapsed, the cost of the registration will be subtracted from your refund.
  • If you used the domain credit to map an existing domain, or if you are canceling within the refund period for the registration, you will receive a full refund.

For refunds regarding renewals, please contact support.
