How do I update my billing information?

Once signed into your account, you can update your billing information by clicking My Account or Dashboard from the top navigation menu. Select Billing and update your billing information.

How do I cancel my recurring subscription?

Once signed into your account, you can cancel your recurring subscription any time up to 24 hours before the due date/time by clicking My Account or Dashboard from the top navigation menu. Select Billing and locate your subscription plan at the bottom of the page.  Click Change Plan and Cancel Membership. Your membership will be cancelled and your access will be removed at the end of your current payment period. Please note that cancellations within 24 hours of the payment due date/time may still be processed via the system billing cycle.

We do not process cancellation requests received by email (see terms and conditions).

If the subscription originated through an app purchase, you must cancel through the app through which the subscription was purchased. Cancelling an in-app purchase via the website will not cancel your app based subscription. An admin cannot cancel this for an end-user.

My credit card is being declined. Why is that?

Many credit/debit cards have online purchase restrictions. If your card is being declined, please contact your credit card company to let them know the purchase you would like to make is valid. Also, certain credit/debit cards do not allow for recurring subscription billing, or payments in another currency, and therefore, may be denied.

I’m not receiving your emails. Why is that?

Check your spam filters and make sure to add us to your safe senders list.  There are occasions when our emails will be blocked and we try to monitor and resend where possible.  It’s also possible that your email was incorrect when you placed your order.  Again, we try to monitor these and will correct any obvious email address errors if we see them. You can amend your email address from within your account. Note to Gmail account holders - check your Promotions folder!

What are your purchase options?

You can choose to purchase some of Roger's content as single-payment courses with lifetime access. Courses are available from time to time via the website. 

You can subscribe to either a recurring monthly or recurring annual plan. All course content is automatically included in subscription plans for active subscribers.

Annual recurring membership plans offer a substantial discount of 20% over the equivalent period paid monthly and you can cancel your subscription renewal at any time from your Roger Gracie TV dashboard. 

Your cancellation will take effect from the annual renewal due date, so if you cancel at any time during the year you will continue to have access to member content until the end of the year you have been billed for. During this period your subscription will show the status “pending cancellation” We don’t offer cancellation /pro-rata refund options on annual subscriptions.

Monthly recurring memberships offer a flexible way to join. You will make a card payment for the monthly fee when you join, and your card details will be stored as a source with Stripe, our payment gateway. Stripe will automatically attempt to take renewal payments on the due date until you cancel your subscription, or your payment is not successful. So, the minimum period you are subscribing for is one month, and you can cancel at any time via your Roger Gracie TV account dashboard.

Your cancellation will take effect from the next renewal due date, so if you cancel mid-month you will continue to have access to member content until the end of the period you have been billed for. During this period your subscription will show the status “pending cancellation”. We do not offer refunds or credits for any partial month membership periods.

Subscription cancellations processed with 24 hours of the due date/time cannot be guaranteed as the automated billing process may already be in process.

Can I buy a subscription or course as a gift?

Yes, you can purchase a gift card via the link in the footer bar or directly on the checkout page. You can either choose a suggested amount or type in your own amount.

After purchasing the gift card, a redemption code is then instantly generated for the user to send to the gift recipient. A copy of this code, along with a receipt, is sent to the buyer via email. It is highly recommended that the buyer keeps the code and saves it for safekeeping.

When the recipient redeems the code, they will not have to enter any card details for future payments unless they decide to top up the gift amount to a higher price product and need to pay a balance.

Can I swap to an annual subscription from an active monthly one?

Yes, you can change your plan. From your account/billing/change my plan. Any unused payment balance is calculated on a daily pro rata basis and deducted from the annual price.

What happens if you change the monthly membership price?

You will continue to pay the price that you signed up for, only new customers will pay the amended price. If you used a discount code when you signed up this code will only apply while that subscription is active and as specified in the sign up offer. If the subscription becomes inactive then the discount will not apply to re-subscriptions.

What happens if my payment card expires and/or my renewal payment fails?

We operate an automatic recurring renewal payment system, so several attempts will be made to process your payment using the card source stored by Stripe. If this process fails you will receive emails from us to let you know that we are still attempting to process payment.  If all attempts fail, you will finally receive an email inviting you to re-enter payment details to access your account.

The subscription will automatically be cancelled after a further month if all payment attempts have failed.

I can't access my account to cancel my subscription after failed payment attempts

If you wish to cancel your subscription without making any further payments, you must process your payment cancellation in advance of the due date. We always process renewal payments in accordance with the time you signed up - for example, if you sign up and gain access on 17th day at 14.00 hours, we will not process payment until after 14.00 hours on the day that the next payment falls due, to ensure you get the full trial (or paid) period.

If you have not cancelled your subscription in advance of the payment process being started, and your payment fails, you will NOT be able to access your account to cancel the renewal process until either a) a successful payment is made or b) the payment renewal process ends in failure over a period of time and your subscription lapses.

Please ensure that you cancel in good time, before the renewal process commences.

My membership seems to be paused when I haven’t cancelled my subscription

Check your active subscription to see if a renewal payment is currently due. Your membership will be on hold until the payment has successfully been processed. Stripe will make several attempts to collect the payment due, but it may be that you need to update your card details, for example if the card expiry date has changed. If you can't access your account then you will need to update your billing details for payment to be made to regain access.

During the subscription renewal process there will be a very short time when your account is on hold while payment is processed – for a successful payment this will be generally less than a minute or so.
