If you used the domain credit to register a new domain, the normal cost of registration will be deducted from your refund; otherwise, you will receive a full refund. There are no refunds, pro-rated or otherwise, after 30 days.

Domain redemption fees are non-refundable should you decide to cancel a domain after a domain is successfully recovered from the Redemption Period.

How will you refund my payment?

You will be refunded to the same payment method you used for your purchase. After processing, refunds usually take about five to ten business days to appear on your statement. For credit card refunds, it could take up to 1-2 billing cycles for the refund to show up. International refunds can take even longer to reach you. Your financial institution is going to be able to tell you when to expect the refund and how it will be listed on your statement.
