Effective as of: October 17th, 2022
This Payment Policy (the “Policy”) constitutes an integral part of our Site’s Terms and Conditions and is subject to the provisions thereof. In the event of any conflict between the Policy and other Website documents, the provisions of the Policy shall prevail.
This Policy outlines how the payments for our Services should be made and describes the existing refund procedures.
1. PAYMENT TERMS
Pricing. The pricing for our Services is based on a bidding model. Once you place an Order, you will see bids from our writers. The final price will be the amount of the bid accepted by you and the price of any selected additional services if applicable.
Payment methods. To use our Services, you must provide one or more valid payment methods. You hereby authorize us to charge your payment method for the Services and any other amounts owed under the Terms.
If the payment was not successfully settled and you do not cancel your Order, we may suspend your access to the Services until we have successfully charged a valid payment method.
For some payment methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, such as currency exchange fees or online payment processing fees. Local tax charges may vary depending on the payment method used and may be added to the price for our Services, if applicable. Please note that if you live on the territory of the European Union and paid VAT in the process of the payment transaction, you do not receive it back in case of a refund. VAT is non-refundable. Check with your issuer for details, as you are solely responsible for payment of all such fees, commissions or taxes, etc.
Payment process. Placing an Order on the Site is free. When placing an Order, you agree to buy the Product. Therefore, you must deposit funds after you accept the bid of a writer. You can also add money to your Account Balance at any time to use them for new Orders. You shall release the agreed fee on completion and delivery of the Services and once the Product is accepted by you; either in installments or in one lump sum, based on the terms thereof.
After the final Product is uploaded (100% completion is stated in your Order) you have 3 days to send us any complaints or revision requests. At the end of this period we will email you to remind about the payment for the Services performed. Please, review the Product carefully before releasing the full amount of money reserved for the Order. In case we have not received any complaints, the money reserved for the Order will be automatically released to the writer on the 4th day. Once the full amount is released, it is deemed that the Product is complete and is to your satisfaction; therefore, no refund will be possible.
Account Balance. You are entitled to request a withdrawal of funds from your Account Balance during the 6 month’s period from the day when the funds were deposited to the Account Balance. Upon the expiration of the mentioned period, we reserve the right to withdraw the funds from your Account Balance to cover the operation costs. We will email you a respective withdrawal notification beforehand.
