5. Refund Policy

Malaysiakini does not refund for any unused portions of subscriptions if you cancel your subscription after a specified time has lapsed. However, you will continue to have access until the end of your current subscription term.

How it works 

*Value of current subscription package is RM20 per month plus a one-time administration fee of RM5. 

Example 1

Based on the above*, the 1 year subscription package is offered at a discounted rate of RM150 instead of RM240. In the event you request for a refund, you will lose the discounted offer and the charges will revert back to its original price of RM20 per month. Therefore, if you have used up your subscription for 7 months, it will be calculated as RM20 X 7 months = RM140 + RM5 administration fee. Your refund entitlement will be RM5 from the RM150 that you have already paid.  

Example 2

Based on the above*, a 3 years subscription package is offered at a discounted rate of RM388 instead of RM720. In the event you request for a refund, you will lose the discounted offer and the charges will revert back to its original price of RM20 per month. Therefore, if you have used up your subscription for 15 months, it will be calculated as RM20 X 15 months = RM300 + RM5 administration fee. Your refund entitlement will be RM83 from the RM388 that you have already paid.
