Points and cost of technical support
Each solution from the alexbranding team is sold with a proportional to price number of points for technical support. Points for technical support is an internal unit of time accounting to help the client. Buying our modules and solutions, you buy an additional amount of time to help from technical support.
The cost of any paid addon consists of the cost of the module and the cost of technical support, which we put into the sales price in the form of points, received by the client with addon.
An example for understanding:
- The addon costs $50 (at this price you buy the module)
- Cost of the module $40 (without support price)
- The included support cost is $10 (10 points of technical support, which corresponds to 20 minutes of specialist work - yes, for us this time will be enough to handle your problem with addon, if it exists)
Rules of technical support with points:
- Free addons do not contain points for technical support
- Turning on any issue to our team, we charge you 10 technical support points. In the event, that you claim a bug, we will not reduce your point balance.
- Points from different purchases of modules are accumulated
- Points can not be used for other client needs, except for solving technical problems with Alexbranding solutions
- You can buy the number of points you need
- You can not contact technical support, if there are no points on the personal balance (the client may be denied assistance by technical support with a current balance below 10 points)
- If the question asked by the client requires more points, than the client has, and the problem is not a bug of the module or alexbranding template, the technical support specialist can write off the number of points, required to solve the problem at his discretion from the calculation: 10 points = 20 minutes of work
Table - Points and priority of assistance
|Priority||Time for an answer||The number of points, to be written off depending on the priority and time of assistance|
|20 min of assistance||40 min of assistance||60 min of assistance|
|Not urgently||7 days||10||20||30|
All time-limits are in working days (without hollidays). Our working time - Mon - Fri 9-00 - 18-00 (+2 GMT)
- If the client does not have the necessary number of points to solve the problem, then the tech support specialist can refuse the client in solving the problem (if this problem is not a solution bug).
- The study of the problem and the solution of the problem can be evaluated and made by separate scores of points from the user account (for example: 10 points of the problem study, 20 points - problem solving)
- The technical support specialist evaluates at his own discretion the number of scores for writing-off (the client, turning to the technical support with the ticket agrees with such conditions: our specialists work based on the hourly rate for solving the problem or its investigation and not for the actual time spent)
- Points for technical support can be returned to the user if the problem is recognized as a bug solution.
