On September 9th I bought 2 plugins. I tested it on the site. I didn't like how my site looks after installing these plugins. I asked for a refund (they promise within 30 days). The money was really returned. During this time, they try to solve the problems that arise, but in this case there was a conflict with the topic. In general, everything is fine.

This is an awesome plugin and as a developer I'm really happy with the thorough documentation and swift support if needed. I also recommend getting the pro version with the theme, saves you a lot of time 😉
