If termination without cause occurs anytime after the first renewal date and Guide has paid their renewal fee (and is therefore an active Guide), a refund equal to the latest Annual Renewal payment amount will be made. Termination without cause refunds will be made within thirty (30) days from the date Guide is notified via email of their termination.

Guide Certification Payment Plan Policy (Year One)

The StoryBrand Guide Certification Payment Plan allows the incoming Guide to pay for their Certification in four (4) monthly payments of $3,000 USD and does not require the full payment equaling $12,000 USD to be received prior to the training. An initial deposit of $3,000 USD is due to confirm a seat in training and the remaining balance will be processed over the following three consecutive months, based on the date of the initial deposit. (For example: if Payment 1  is made on August 22, Payments 2-4 will automatically process on September 22, October 22 and November 22).

If the Certified Guide opts into the 4-part payment plan to pay for their first year of Certification, Guide will be given access to a payment dashboard which will enable them to make updates to their credit card on file, pay off the remaining balance sooner or rectify past due payments. 

Past-due payments will incur late fees, if not resolved in a timely manner. Late fees will be applied as follows:

  • If a scheduled payment fails one time, Guide will be notified via email. No late fee will be applied at this time. The system will automatically attempt to charge the card again 72 hours later.
  • If a scheduled payment fails a second time, Guide will be notified via email and a $50 USD late fee will be added to the total payment due. Guide can either log into their payment dashboard to process the payment manually or otherwise have the system automatically attempt to charge the card again 72 hours later, with the late fee added to the total balance owed (now totaling $3,050 USD).
  • If a scheduled payment fails a third time, Guide will be notified via email and another $50 USD late fee will be added to the total payment due (not a total of $100 USD in late fees). Guide can either log into the payment dashboard to process the payment manually or otherwise have the system automatically attempt to charge the card again 72 hours later, with the additional late fee added to the total balance owed (now totaling $3,100 USD).
  • If a scheduled payment fails a fourth and final time, Guide forfeits their seat in the upcoming training or if already certified at that point, the certification license associated with this payment is deactivated and Guide loses access to all tools and resources associated with their certification. To reconfirm a seat in training, Guide needs to log into the payment dashboard to pay the remaining balance in full. If the Guide has already completed training and needs to reactivate their certification license, a $1500 USD reactivation fee will be applied and Guide will have to pay for the remainder of their balance in full. 

Guide Renewal Cancellation Policy

If a StoryBrand Certified Guide renewal is canceled within 30 days from the start date of the StoryBrand Certified Guide renewal payment plan (the 15th of the month of the initial StoryBrand Certified Guide training) (“Renewal Payment Date”), an amount equal to the remaining monthly payments due within the first 30 days of the renewal period, not to exceed $450 USD (“First Quarter Renewal Cancellation Fee”), will be charged to the method of payment on file. Any remaining balance will be credited back to the method of payment on file. The First Quarter Renewal Cancellation Fee is applied to:

(i) Administrative processing fees

(ii) Access to StoryBrand Guide resources for 30 days from the Renewal Payment Date

If a StoryBrand Certified Guide renewal is canceled the 31st day or later, after the Renewal Payment Date, the Guide has consented to paying their renewal fee in full & no refunds will be issued.

Past-due payments will incur late fees, if not resolved in a timely manner. Late fees will be applied as follows:

  • If a scheduled payment fails one time, Guide will be notified via email. No late fee will be applied at this time. The system will automatically attempt to charge the card again 72 hours later.
  • If a scheduled payment fails a second time, Guide will be notified via email and a $50 USD late fee will be added to the total payment due. Guide can either log into their payment dashboard to process the payment manually or otherwise have the system automatically attempt to charge the card again 72 hours later, with the late fee added to the total balance owed.
  • If a scheduled payment fails a third time, Guide will be notified via email and another $50 USD late fee will be added to the total payment due (not a total of $100 USD in late fees). Guide can either log into the payment dashboard to process the payment manually or otherwise have the system automatically attempt to charge the card again 72 hours later, with the additional late fee added to the total balance owed.
  • If a scheduled payment fails a fourth and final time, the Guide’s certification license associated with this payment is deactivated and Guide loses access to all tools and resources associated with their certification. The Guide also no longer qualifies to re-enter the program in the future at a discounted rate if they were exited due to non-payment. 

Guide Reactivation Policy

If a former Certified StoryBrand Guide would like to return to the program, it can access discounted pricing during the 24-month period immediately after exiting the program. If the member seeks to return more than 24 months after exiting the program, that member no longer has access to discounted pricing.

Additionally, this discounted pricing is not available to Guides who exited the program through failed payments. It is only available to those who left in financial good-standing.

Facilitator Certification Cancellation Policy

StoryBrand Certified Guide understands that there is a minimum six (6) month commitment to the Facilitator Certification program.

If a Certified Guide would like to cancel their Facilitator certification after the first six (6) months, they must provide written notice to certified@storybrand.com with their intent not to renew their Facilitator certification with at least thirty (30) days notice. No refunds on any prior payments towards this additional certification will be given for this program.

StoryBrand may terminate training, any service, license, or any privilege without cause, but in doing so, would offer a refund equal to the first six (6) months payment amount ($7,500) if termination occurs within one year of the certification date. If termination without cause occurs anytime after the first year of the certification date, StoryBrand would offer a refund equal to six (6) months payment amount ($7,500) or equal to the latest year to date payments received if less than $7,500. Termination without cause refunds will be made within thirty (30) days from the date Guide is notified via email of their termination.

Agency Certification Cancellation Policy

StoryBrand Certified Guide understands that there are no refunds offered once the Agency Certification training has started. Upon completion of the Agency Certification training, the Agency Certification shall automatically renew on a month-to-month basis unless StoryBrand Certified Guide provides written notice to StoryBrand at certified@storybrand.com with their intent not to renew their Agency certification with at least thirty (30) days notice. No refunds on any prior payments towards this additional certification will be given for this program.

If the StoryBrand Certified Guide would like to reactivate a canceled Agency Certification, they may submit a request to reactivate to the Director of the StoryBrand Certification program at certified@storybrand.com. If the StoryBrand Certified Guide has been out of the Agency Certification program for more than 24 months, they will be required to purchase and participate in another Agency Certification training before being recertified.
