Lost certificate lingots?

[deactivated user]

    Hey, I just tried to buy my first certificate test thinking I could just take it later. A message appeared telling me I'd have to do it now and during 20 minutes, allowing me to choose between "continue" and "cancel". I clicked cancel. My lingots have been reduced by 25 though. Are they lost forever?

      realized it's not gone in the end. How many lingots did you send over so I can send them back? :P

        Hi there! Editing my response: You don't need to pay with more lingots when you go back to the store to grab the certification. It'll be free the next time you go to take the certification.

          Awesome! Didn't expect that. Now I'm sending lingots back to people :P
