Terms & Conditions
These Terms and Conditions of Sale of The Neat Company, Inc. (“Neat”) apply to sales of Neat’s products and services. A copy of these Terms and Conditions of Sale are available from Neat’s website at neat.com/terms-conditions/. By placing orders by telephone or through our websites, you (“you” or “Customer”) accept, without limitation or qualification, these Terms and Conditions of Sale.
If you’re signing up for a Neat software subscription service with a minimum contract term, you’ll also find information herein about that contract term and what happens if you cancel your Neat software subscription service early or don’t pay on time.
A valid credit card, debit card, or PayPal account is required for purchase. Neat does not accept checks, gift cards or purchase orders as a means of payment.
You will be charged in full at checkout for the product, sales tax (if applicable), and any accessories or service plans you selected. If you are dissatisfied with your purchase in any way, you may cancel the subscription for a refund in accordance with the Refund Policy below.

Past Due Amounts
In the event you fail to make a required payment on the due date, all remaining payments shall immediately become due and owing. In addition, you will be charged a late fee of $25 per month on any past due amounts owed and, should your account be sent to an outside collection agency, Neat shall, in addition to the $25 per month fee, be entitled to reimbursement of all costs, expenses, and reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in attempting to collect any outstanding amounts owed.
NOTE: Zero or limited use by customer of Neat software subscription service and/or requested cancellation of your active Neat Software subscription does not absolve you of any current balance due.
About Credit Card Account Updater Programs
Neat is enrolled in the Visa® Account Updater and MasterCard® Automatic Billing Updater programs. These programs enable sharing updated account information between us and your credit card company.
This process starts after we submit your recurring billing authorizations to your credit card company. If your card number or expiration date has changed since you placed your original order, we receive your updated account information.
Once we receive your updated account information, we automatically update your payment profile and attempt to process the transaction.
American Express® also has a recurring billing program similar to the Visa Account Updater and MasterCard Automatic Billing Updater programs. This program requires no action on our part.
Once American Express receives your recurring billing authorizations from us, they internally identify your new card numbers or expiration dates. Then, they process transactions using your updated account information without sending it to us, so your payment profiles are not updated in Neat’s systems.
To verify your issuing bank’s participation in the programs, please contact your credit card company.
Cloud Subscription Refunds
- No prorated refunds. Cancellation will occur on day prior to the next billing period
- Conversion from free trial to paid subscription– no refunds allowed after fifteen (15) days post conversion from free trial period
- Paid purchases (Buy Now, not trial conversion) – no refunds allowed after 30 days from purchase date
- Automated renewals (annual plans only) – refund within thirty (30) days of renewal charge only
- Prorated refunds – not allowed
NOTE: Visa Refund Authorizations may be impacted due to new Visa Requirements (April 2020)
Visa has recently instituted a global change in how refunds are required to be processed. While the intent of this is to improve visibility and the customer experience, there are situations where the refund may be declined. Note that this decline is outside of Neat’s control and we will work with you to ensure your refund is processed via alternate methods (e.g. check refund) to get your funds refunded as quickly as possible.
Please refer to Visa’s information here: https://www.verifi.com/visa-purchase-return-authorization-issuer/
In the event your refund to a Visa card has failed, Neat will reach out to customers as soon as possible with alternatives.
NOTE: As of June 2017, Neat has ceased manufacture and sale of Neat-branded scanners. As such, ALL Neat scanners are now considered out of warranty and no further hardware warranties are applicable.

As of October 2019, existing customers can trial new Neat software versions free of charge for fifteen (15) days with no obligation to upgrade to a new software plan. If the customer does not choose to upgrade, they can remain on their current (aka “Grandfathered”) Neat software plan (Essential/Lite, Premium, or Business) at the current price and term (monthly or annual).

If customer chooses to upgrade to the latest Neat software plans (currently Basic or Complete, monthly or annual billing), customer acknowledges and accepts that they CANNOT return to their previous Grandfathered plan type as they are no longer available for purchase or reinstatement.
