FAQS

Can I download or export my website?

Envato Sites will not be providing users with copies of any websites that have been created in the Site Builder. However, you can find instructions for downloading your website content which can be helpful for creating a new website on a different platform. Click here for a guide to downloading your content.

How do I cancel my subscription?

You can cancel your subscription at any time by deleting your website from your Dashboard. Click here for more information.

Can I get a refund if I cancel early?

The Envato Sites Terms and Conditions (including our position on refunds) continue to apply. However, Envato Sites offers a 30-day money back guarantee on all Annual subscriptions. So, if you decide to cancel your Annual subscription within 30 days of starting or renewing, our support team can provide you with a refund. We’ve also described above (under ‘Shut-down stages') our position on prorated refunds - these will be offered for Annual subscriptions only.

See our Terms and Conditions for more information. 

What’s next for Envato?

The team responsible for the Simple Site Builder launched a new, mobile-first website builder in June of 2019. The app is called Milkshake and it's designed to help Instagrammers share more content via their link in bio. The app is available on both the App Store and the Play Store
