It happens from time to time that people but the wrong version (https://shop.hanssonit.se/product-category/virtual-machine/nextcloud-vm/) and gets the OVA instead of the Hyper-V version.
The process in the shop is automated and works like this:
- The customer buys the VM
- When the payment is done the order is marked as completed
- An email is sent to the customer with a download link for the purchased VM
- The customer downloads it
- The order is automatically sent to my accountant which books the payment in our accountant system, they charge 100€ per hour.
In the background each version has a specific folder linked to it in my Nextcloud (cloud.hanssonit.se) which contains the VM in question. On each release I upload the VMs to that folder.
When the customer downloads the VM I can check from which IP it’s downloaded and how many times it’s been downloaded. The link expires after 10 days.
Due to the fact that the customer gets direct access to the VM when the order is completed (in the automated process), there’s no refund since the customer got exactly what was paid for. There are some people though, that tries to get 2 for 1 by claiming they got the wrong version. Hence I added in the terms of conditions that this isn’t allowed (https://shop.hanssonit.se/terms-and-conditions/, section 24).
It may be an honest mistake, sure, but as it costs me around 50€ to correct the mistake (see above), it’s a no deal for me. Sorry. It’s not that I’m trying to be rude or anything, but when you buy something, maybe it’s a good idea to check what you’re actually buying.
Claiming I’m a scammer is just taking it too far. T&M Hansson IT provides a service to Nextcloud and it’s users, and has been doing so for years. You are free to support the work I do (countless hours) by buying a VM, or you can choose to download it for free. It’s your choice, and I’m happy for users that choose to show their gratitude by purchasing one of the paid versions.
I’m just stating the facts here, I hope you understand.
I’m sorry that you’re disappointed @Mr_Dashpuppy. You already got your money back.
In this case, you actually bought the wrong VM:
