Respond to Angry Customer

You receive an email from a customer who has had their product for 9 months and has been regularly using it 2+ times a week. They’ve decided they no longer want their subscription and in addition, are insisting they need to return the product for a full refund because they’re moving and don’t want to take it with them.

You have the following constraints:

  • The company refund policy only allows customers to return products within 30 days.
  • When purchasing, the customer agrees to pay for a full year of subscription before they are able to cancel.
  • Customers are able to pause their memberships for up to 3 months at a time.
  • Customers are able to transfer ownership of the product but the new owner must pay a subscription in order to access the content.
  • Your manager doesn’t want to get involved in conversations like this and wants you to handle it on your own.
