Factory Direct Sales are Not Refundable

The Manifold Online Store provides factory-direct transactions for professionals. Amateur users who feel comfortable with a professional transaction may also use the Online Store to buy direct from Manifold.

Factory direct sales provide wholesale prices even for quantity one purchases but do not provide refunds or free trial software. Factory-direct pricing is only for people who want the lowest possible price direct from Manifold and who either know what they want or are willing to pay a small fee to learn about new software. Customers who require retail, consumer services should buy through a reseller.
