  • Filing a transaction dispute or reversing a payment through your payment provider or your bank is a violation of these Commercial Terms. Doing so may get your account temporarily or permanently disabled. Note: Once you have filed a dispute with your payment provider, the funds will be ineligible for a refund due to our obligations towards the payment provider.

  • In the event that you encounter an issue related to the service provided in a Booking, you are encouraged to solve the matter with the Expert. For unresolved matters please contact our Customer care here.

b. Booking Cancellations

See below for Booking specific eligibility.

  • Completed Bookings, as defined in the Terms of Use, may not be canceled. 

  • Users can cancel bookings up to 24 hours before the Session starts, by contacting our customer care here. Please be advised that Bookings cannot be partially canceled (i.e. we can only cancel the entire Booking when it is justified).

  • In rare circumstances where we find it appropriate, our Customer Care team may cancel a completed Booking even after its completion. In such cases, the amounts paid for the canceled Booking will be returned to the User’s original payment method and will be deducted from the Expert’s Company Balance.

  • Bookings are not eligible to be canceled based on the quality of service delivered by the Expert if the service was rendered as described in the Session Page. You may rate and review your experience with the Expert after a Session, including the overall level of service quality received.

d. Chargebacks 

Company reviews cases of payment provider chargebacks and disputes on behalf of Experts. Although results vary per case due to each chargeback reason, we work hard on resolving disputes in the Expert’s favor. If the chargeback case allows, Company (or one of Company's Payment Services Providers) will return parts or full revenue back to Experts, otherwise the chargeback amount will be borne by the Expert. 

 

e. Refunds

  • Company refunds payments made for eligible canceled Bookings back to the original payment method used while Booking. Refunds are made 48 hours after the Booking cancellation is verified by Customer Care. 

  • Refunds are based on the Booking’s original payment amount and currency. To prevent fraud and abuse, we limit the total amount of times Users can request a payment provider refund, which is subject to review by our Customer Care team. Such refunds may be subject to an additional fee.
