Here are some typical questions you might have about how to use our website, however don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or comments or to add any more FAQ’s to this page. You can send a private message to @greent64 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a chat message through the chat widget.
Can I get a refund?
Members who signed up with a trial period are not eligible for a refund after the trial ends and their card got charged. Please be sure to cancel within the trial period if you do not wish to use the site.
We do not offer refunds for subscriptions if members forgot to cancel, and want refund after payment went through. Please be sure to keep track of your subscription renewal date.
How do I cancel membership?
You can cancel your membership by going to https://greenteacoffeedate.com/membership-account/ page and selecting “Cancel” under My Memberships section. This will cancel your membership and revoke your access to the member areas immediately as well as remove your profile from our member feed and search.
Your membership cancellation will trigger the PayPal or Stripe and cancel the scheduled payments. You will receive an email confirmation of cancelled payments. If you have not received a cancellation email within 24 hours, please let us know.
If you cancel your PayPal subscription directly on PayPal website and not actually cancel the membership on Green Tea and Coffee, your membership will be set to expire on the date your subscription was paid up to.
In order to avoid trial period (and refund period) abuse, US and Canada subscription members who sign up and cancel their membership within trial more than once in a short period of time, might not be allowed to re-join our site after 2nd cancellation (within trial or refund period). We will determine if member should be banned after reviewing the sign up pattern. We offer a very reasonable membership price and members who attempt to cancel/re-join repeatedly to avoid the fee, are not able to join anymore.
What happens if my payment fails?
If your payment fails at the fee collection time, PayPal or Stripe will attempt to collect the 2nd payment in few days (approx 5). If the 2nd payment fails, your membership will be cancelled.
Please be advised if your payment has failed and as a result your membership has been cancelled, you are not eligible to simply rejoin and have another trial period. You will be asked to pay the outstanding fee at rejoining.
How do I update my profile photo?
Click on Profile page (on top menu) and then click on Change Profile Photo. You will be asked to upload a photo and crop it to smaller size. There is a minimum size for profile photo and if your photo is too small it might not be accepted. Please keep your images above 150px in width and height to ensure they are accepted. Please try to upload nice quality photos to ensure your profile (and our site) looks good (no low quality grainy photos please). Some members photos are displayed on the home page and the better your photo, the better chance of new members joining to talk to you!
You cannot remove your profile photo – all members are required to have a profile photo of their face and those without will be removed from the site. We are strict about that so please do not test this theory.

What made you create this site?
We are an AMWF couple (a web designer and a teacher/writer) who met on a similar site few years ago (now defunct). We saw a niche and opportunity to recreate it but better. We are constantly improving and adding new features to the site to make it for a richer and fun experience and create a sense of community and understanding for our members. Thanks for joining us. We love working on this project.
