StudyCrumb Money-Back Guarantee allows the Customer to request reimbursement in cases described below. If the Customer's request does not fit into any category, they may contact the Support Team to discuss the nature of the request.
If the Customer decides to cancel their Order, the following rules apply:
- If the Customer chooses to cancel an Order if it has never been assigned to any Writer, they will become eligible for a 100% refund.
- If the Customer decides to cancel an Order when a Writer has already started working on it, the amount of compensation will be proportional to the amount of work not yet done. A refund percentage cannot exceed 80% due to the necessity of the preliminary research and operational expenses incurred by the Company. The Customer may also request an unfinished paper.
In case of delayed delivery of an Order, the Customer is entitled to a Time Delivery Difference Compensation, which is calculated in every case separately, depending on the initial deadline and the time of delay. Compensation for delay cannot be provided if:
- The delay was a consequence of actions made by the Customer. This includes a delay in payment, including additional payment for order modification, delay in the provision of necessary sources, or failure to respond to questions or requests from us in a timely manner.
- The inability to receive the Order on time was due to technical complications of Customer's internet provider, browser, or any system malfunctions.
- The Customer provided a deadline extension voluntarily.
Bad Quality Claims
- If the Customer is not satisfied with the provided Order and would like to get compensation, the Quality Assurance Team will conduct an investigation. The Customer is required to provide extensive comments that indicate a mismatch between the initial instructions and the completed Order. The resolution of the Customer's claim will be based on the result of the investigation. Note: in an instance where a bad quality claim is filed, and the Order has been previously submitted for Revision, a compensation will not exceed 70%, because a request for Revision implies that that Customer has partially approved of the piece. This excludes cases with the "Redone" Revision level.
- If the claim for compensation is due to a bad grade, such claims cannot be considered valid. The Order is intended to be used for research and reference purposes and may not be submitted as the Customer's own work.
- If the claim is that the paper is unoriginal, a “Turnitin.com” or a “SafeAssign” report is required. There will be no other reports that can be accepted to conduct an investigation by the Quality Assurance Team.
- If the compensation is requested for the "Editing, & Proofreading" type of Order, the investigation will not be conducted if a bad quality claim is of contextual nature. These services do not presuppose significant alterations (up to 30%) of the Order structure.
- If the compensation is requested for an order that was placed for more than 2 double-spaced pages with a 6-hour deadline or less, this request may be declined. This is due to the fact that the quality of an urgent order may be compromised because of the short time frames. Please keep in mind that by placing a rush order, you agree to the stated terms.
Order Details / Preferences
- If a Customer selected a "Plagiarism Report" feature and did not receive it, they become eligible for a refund of the price of the feature.
- The Customer may select a specific Writer to work on their Order by indicating their ID number in the "Preferred Writer ID" field on the Order form. By doing so, the Customer acknowledges that there is no 100% guarantee that the specific Writer is available to work on the Order. Should such an instance occur, the Company reserves the right to assign the best available specialist in the Subject Area of the Order, matching Preferred Writer performance level in case the Customer checks the relevant field.
- A non-applied discount cannot be compensated in any way. It is Customer's sole responsibility to track the accuracy of all Order Details, including the "Discount" field. The Customer may consult our Support Team in Order to check the availability of discounts.
- The Customer may pay for an extra quality check. The feature implies that after the Writer completes the order, another expert of the related field of science proofreads the work. After completing the quality check, the Customer receives completed work. The feature is non-refundable and inapplicable for revisions.
- The Customer may pay for a 1-page summary. The service offers a summary of the whole work which gives a brief overview of the content. The file is delivered as a separate document with the same spacing as the main file. You can only purchase a 1-page summary when submitting the Order and when the Order has “in progress” status. You cannot purchase a 1-page summary if the Order has “completed” status or there is an active Revision on it. This feature is non-refundable.
In order to submit a compensation request, the Customer must contact the Support Team within 14 days after the latest copy of the Order has been sent to the Customer. For cases that involve plagiarism issues this time frame is extended to 30 days. The procedure takes up to 5 days for the request to be reviewed. The Customer will be contacted with a resolution over the phone, by email or via the Messaging System on the website. Our representative has the right to request any additional information from the Customer to process the claim correctly.
Once the Customer receives a refund confirmation, the Company will process it within 5 business days from the confirmation date. Please note, that the Company cannot be held responsible for any Bank Transfer fees, peculiarities of transfer, and possible delays occurring due to Bank service issues. Refunds can only be processed if their amount exceeds $10.
