What are your 3 guarantees for every customer?

  1. Every purchase is protected by our Satisfaction Guarantee: love it or your money back, no questions asked. We mean it!
  2. Our Easy-Refund Guarantee makes us work harder to please customers. If you’re not satisfied for whatever reason, we’ll refund your money hassle-free. We know some bad guys will take advantage of our policy to get free lessons. Thankfully, our happy customers more than compensate for freeloaders.
  3. Our customer care team always responds promptly and politely. We hate being mistreated by so-called “customer service” just as much as you do.

What happens when I buy?

We accept every major credit card: VISA, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. After signing up, we’ll email you sign-in information. Sign in to immediately watch every video. We’ll also email you a receipt. Cancel anytime by contacting us at webmaster@watercolortechnique.com. We will treat you right.

How secure is my credit card information?

All payments are handled by the same service which is used by an estimated 66% of the top 1 million websites. We figure if the service is good enough for ~660,000 websites, it’s good enough for us. We actually never see your payment information, so we can’t leak it even if we were forced to. To further protect yourself online, we recommend signing up for automatic alerts from your credit card providers. You’ll catch mysterious transactions quicker, which means you can challenge them quicker. Card companies usually refund mystery charges when you challenge them quickly.

How do I adjust my membership?

If you want to switch to another auto-renewing membership, simply buy that membership on the pricing page. Your existing membership will switch to the new one purchased and your renewal cycle will begin anew. If you want to cancel, email us with proof of purchase at webmaster@watercolortechnique.com or call our 24/7 hotline: (888) 881-2542. Our customer care team emails back between 8-4pm PST, Mon-Fri. For security reasons, we cannot cancel memberships over livechat.

What happens if my membership expires?

Memberships only expire due to non-payment or cancelation. Videos will lock up so you can no longer watch them. Any special pricing you locked in will be lost. To regain unlimited views, you can buy again.

What colors, brushes and other watercolor supplies do I need?

Will this work on my device?

If you’ve watched videos online before, you can watch all our videos too. We use HTML5 video players, which means we support nearly every Internet-connected device on the planet, including PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets. Flash is optional and not required.

Why aren’t videos working as expected?

Alas as much as we try to make our website work with every device on the planet, incompatibilities may arise, many which can be fixed. Here are some initial steps you should take to fix your own problem (which is always the fastest solution):

  1. Clear your browser’s cookies and cache. Each browser demands different steps so your best bet is to Google it. For example, if you’re using Internet Explorer, Google: “how to clear cookies and cache in Internet Explorer.” Then follow those steps.
  2. Try visiting the webpage using a different browser, then play the video. For example, if you’re using Chrome, try using Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer instead.
  3. Check if your Internet download speed is faster than 4 MB per second. You can check your Internet speed for free by clicking here to visit SpeedTest.net.
  4. Contact us by emailing webmaster@watercolortechnique.com with a description of your issue and the result of your speed test.

Can I watch these videos on another device?

Yes! If you keep an active membership, you can always sign in from any device to access every video.

Can I download these watercolor techniques videos?

No. We don’t want video files floating around for copyright reasons.

My question isn’t here, how do I get more help?
