NO REFUNDS will be offered to advertisers once MANTIS services have been initiated. This is due to the time and cost of account setup, capacity allocation, access to training and support, etc. Services are considered initiated when a campaign is submitted to MANTIS for review, resulting in any amount of ad spend. There are no exceptions to this policy.
In the event that MANTIS’ services are not initiated or your account has been suspended, the unspent monies in your account balance may be refunded at your request if approved by MANTIS. MANTIS reserves the right to hold the funds for up to thirty (30) days after receiving your request. You will be notified of our decision as soon as possible. If a refund is approved, a 10% administration fee will be deducted from the refunded amount; and funds can only be refunded to the original payment method.
Requesting Refund After Suspension
In the rare event that your account is suspended, a request for refund will only be considered if sent from an authorized user of the account from the registered email to email@example.com with the reference line “Refund Requested After Suspension” and must include the following:
- Your name
- The name of the account
- The date of the suspension notice
This review process can take up to 30 days, and when completed you will be notified of our decision by email. If approved, it can take an additional 7-10 business days for the financial institution to return the funds to the original card of purchase.
Because we do not directly own the publications who display ads on our network, we are not responsible for traffic quality issues that may arise as a result of your ad spend. We recommend that for new campaigns you set a daily spend limit to evaluate the effectiveness of each website for your product/service and remove those that underperform.
When your ad has been placed on a third-party website, we have guaranteed to cover the cost of the placement with the publisher and cannot retroactively credit your account as the spend has already been allocated.
That being said, we encourage you to share which websites you find to be the most ineffective as we will take this into consideration during our regular network clean-up, especially if multiple advertisers are having similar results.
