F.A.Q

  1. I have paid for a product but cant find where I download it from?
    After your payment has been successfully sent, you will automatically receive an email with a link to download the purchased package. This email will be sent to the same address you used to pay for an item.
     
  2. Is there a limit to how many times I can download a package?
    Each download link is valid for a maximum of 5 downloads and so will automatically expire if you attempt to download the package more than 5 times.
     
  3. What types of payment do you accept?
    We accept a number of payment methods, including credit and debit cards (Visa, Mastercard and American Express) or alternatively you can also pay using PayPal.
     
  4. I can't find my download email?
    Download emails are automatically sent within a few minutes of cleared payment to the email address you used to purchase the product. Be sure to take a look in your Junk folder and check it has not arrived in there by mistake.
     
  5. My videos are taking a long time to download?
    Our videos are presented in the most efficient format possible to help reduce download time. However due to the high definition video quality, each package is still quite large (often 1GB+). So please bear in mind it may take a couple of hours for your download to complete, depending on how fast your internet connection is.
     
  6. What format are your videos in?
    Video tutorials for each package are in '.mp4' format.
     
  7. I am having trouble playing the videos?
    Once downloaded, the easiest way to open any of the video files is to double-click the file and let your computer decide which default application should open the file. MP4 files can be opened with Windows Media Player and Quicktime as well as a number of other multi- format media players. 
    If no program opens the MP4 file then you probably don't have an application installed that can view MP4 files. To fix this, we recommend downloading VLC player which is a free, cross-platform multimedia player that will play almost any video format including MP4 files. 

     
  8. Can I get a custom package containing only the topics I need?
    Of course! If you are interested in putting together a custom package please send us a message using the help form below and we will help you out.
