1. Account registration and verification process:

How do I register on Scratch Monkeys?

We’ve done our best to make our registration process as easy and seamless as possible and are happy to sum it up in these simple steps:

  1. Click on "Sign Up" located on the top right corner of the page.
  2. Enter your First name, Last name, your email address, and password that you desire. 
  3. Once you have clicked "Sign Up" at the bottom, ScratchMonkeys will send a confirmation email with instructions to activate your account.
  4. Verify your email then you'll be good to go to make purchases on our website!

Why do I have to verify my email address and phone number?

We ask that all new customers verify their email address for account security and fraud prevention.

 

2. Order Limits:

What are Order Limits and why do you have them?

We have two types Order Limits: Spending Limits and Quantity Limits.   

  • Spending Limits are placed on ALL newly created accounts for a probationary period.  The Spending Limits are as follows: USD $200 per Day with a maximum of USD $500 per Month. Once the probationary period ends, these limits are automatically lifted.
  • Quantity Limits are placed on certain products we sell.  These limits are reset at the end of every day.        

The reason why we have these limits is because while you’re getting to know and trust us, we’re also getting to know and trust you as well! So, we’ve implemented these Order Limits for your security and to also prevent payment fraud on Scratch Monkeys for our security.

May I be exempt from your probationary period?

Sorry, but no you may not be exempt from your probationary period.  

 

3. Ordering:

What forms of payments do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards and PayPal.

My payment is not going through! What should I do?

Please make sure you have entered the details of your Credit Card or PayPal account correctly.

  • If your debit/credit card payment is not going through, please contact your credit card company, as sometimes they require a verbal verification to protect their customers against identity thefts.
  • If you are using PayPal as payment, please make sure your Scratchmonkeys email is the same as your PayPal email. If your emails don't match your order will be rejected.

My order is getting flagged for “suspicion of fraud” but I’m not a fraudster! What gives?

If you’re not a fraudster and are running into this issue, please accept our sincere apology for the inconvenience caused! 

  • Our system uses a range of sophisticated fraud detection software and tools in order to keep the real fraudsters at bay – it’s a constant day to day battle with these people and these protective measures are necessary. 
  • The most common reason why your order may be getting flagged for fraud is because you might be using a VPN or a Proxy – you’ll need to disable this in order to purchase from us.  Another reason might be because you are trying to make a purchase from an Open IP address (i.e. an internet café) that has been flagged as high risk due to a history fraudulent activity from that location.

If you’re still having trouble, please contact us at help@scratchmonkeys.com and we will get this sorted out for you.

Do you sell or ship Physical Cards?

No, we do not sell physical cards on Scratch Monkeys. All of the products we sell are digitally delivered to your account. 

 

5. Questions about my purchased product:

I am trying to redeem my purchase but it says my redemption code is invalid?

There could be a few reasons why a code may be invalid:

  • Please make sure that the code has been entered in the redemption box correctly.
  • Code are region specific, please make sure that you are not using a card meant for one region with an account for a different region. 
    • For example, a US Region code will only work on US accounts.

If none of the above help, please contact us immediately and we will do our best to resolve the issue at the earliest.

Do the codes you sell ever expire?

Generally most products we sell do not have expiration dates.  However, since every brand is different, please refer to the specific brands terms and conditions found on their respective product description page.

What is your refund policy?

Due to the fact that our site provides the instantaneous delivery of digital codes ALL SALES ARE FINAL AND NON-REFUNDABLE.

Unless the purchased item is deemed to be invalid/inactive and/or not redeemable. Only in that case will ScratchMonkeys either replace the code or issue a refund with our apologies.
