MOVE TO AUSTRALIA DIRECTORY LISTINGS:
Listing fees are annual and will renew automatically. You will be sent reminder emails ahead of time to allow you to update payment details or make changes to your subscription.
You may cancel your listing within 14 days of placing your order and your listing will be removed and your fee refunded in full. Outside of this time frame, you may remove your listing at any time should you wish to do so. No pro rata refund will be given outside the 14-day cooling off period. Any change you make to your subscription outside the 14-day period will update for the following year’s membership.
If you purchase an Enhanced or VIP listing in the Move to Australia directory, we will be in touch after the 14-day cooling off period to organise the written Q&A post and (if relevant) the client case study article. If you decide to cancel your directory listing at a later date, the posts will still remain on the website (even though your listing in the directory will be removed).
If you remain in the directory for subsequent years, you have the option to refresh the original Q&A post and (if relevant) case study post with new keywords (which we will review and update) and a new date to improve search rankings, or you can choose to publish a completely new piece of content to cover different questions/create a new case study.
VIP members joining the Facebook group must follow the Facebook group rules. Only VIP advertisers will be invited to join the closed Move to Australia Facebook group. (The Facebook group is a community group rather than a place for selling so it has a policy of not allowing businesses into the group, but the VIP directory members are allowed to join). The group rules will be provided when signing up for the VIP package.
The order which listings appear will depend on the listing tier that was purchased, with VIP listings appearing at the top.
We hold the right to refuse a listing in the Move to Australia Directory if we feel it isn’t the right fit.
