Refund policy

Pages that aren’t successfully printed will be refunded automatically, as PaperCut can detect if a print job is successfully delivered.

Refunds will only be provided on the following basis:

  • Fading or streaked printer tone: Document has to be produced at time of claim.

  • Lost print jobs due to printer hardware failure where job does not resume printing.

Refunds will not be provided for:

  • Unspent balance in your Papercut account. (You can, however, transfer your account balance to another SFU or FIC student.)
  • Wrong print job or print job settings.
