Paid service “Ya+” and cancellation/refund policy

User can choose to receive the paid service Ya+ by making a transaction via bank transfer or payment gateway Razorpay (if applicable). 

Prices shown on the Site are in Indian Rupee by default and are inclusive of any relevant local India tax charges at the applicable rate. If you are a customer whose credit card is not denominated in Indian Rupee, the final price you will be paying will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your credit card company processes the transaction.

By using "Ya+" You agree to submit to YACLASS/Razorpay all the necessary information for completing the payment.

The service can be connected in the "Ya+" section of the Website.

An active Ya+ service provides the following additional digital content to the user:

  • Correct answers to any task in the “Subjects” section;
  • An explanation of the solution for all Website tasks, tests and testworks sent by the teacher (after the task/test is completed);
  • Access to the Student’s results section for the teachers.

There are two types of Ya+ connections available:

Ya+ monthly subscription

Every 30 days, the Ya+ connection is automatically extended and a payment of 500 ₹ (for YA+ for 30 days) is transferred from the bank card specified by the user, until the user cancels the subscription or the bank card data is changed / deleted.

For the first payment, a OTP (One Time Password) will be sent by Razorpay to the phone number the user has provided on the payment dialogue. The service will be connected immediately after the payment has been received.

You can cancel the automatic payment of the Ya+ subscription at any time by logging in to your YaClass.in profile and opening the Ya+ section of the Website or by sending an e-mail to info@yaclass.in or by using the information provided on the Razorpay payment notification (by sms or email).

By disabling the automatic payment of the Ya+ subscription, all future payments are suspended, and Ya+ will be active until the end of prepaid period.

An informative message is sent to the user’s e-mail address registered on the Website about the payments made and tried.

If the first automatic payment is unsuccessful (insufficient funds in the account, technical malfunctions, etc.), the system will try to make the payment again after 24 hours. If the second payment attempt is also unsuccessful, the third attempt must be made by the user. If the payment is not made within 48 hours after the second attempt, the Ya+ service is automatically deactivated.

The subscription is automatically terminated if: 1) the bank card expires; 2) there are not enough funds in the bank account to pay for the service (after two attempts); 3) the user profile has not been active for 340 days

Ya+ for 12 months

After a one-time payment of 2000 ₹, the Ya+ service is connected to the user for 365 days from the moment of connection. In the case of using Razorpay payment methods, the service is activated immediately after the payment is received. In the case of a bank transfer payment method, the Ya+ service will be activated within 5 business days after receiving the payment.

If necessary, at the request of the user, it is possible to switch the Ya+ connection to another profile registered on the Website. To do this, the user must contact the Administration of the Website by e-mail at info@yaclass.in.

The Ya+ service is not subject to the right of withdrawal after the user has received the service, as the service is digital content that cannot be returned. In case of blocking, deleting, or terminating the use of the user profile and / or making an erroneous payment, no payments related to the purchase of the Portal services will be refunded.
