Both Buyers and Sellers agree that the entire risk arising out of their meeting and/or their use or performance of local services remains solely with them, and iSkills Marketplace has no responsibility or liability related to any local services provided by the Sellers.

When a Buyer orders a Gig, the Seller is notified by email as well as notifications on the site while logged into the account.
Sellers are required to meet the delivery time they specified when creating their Gigs. Failing to do so will allow the Buyer to cancel the Order when an Order is marked as late and may harm the Seller's status.
Sellers must send completed files and/or proof of work using the Deliver Completed Work button (located on the Order page) to mark the Order as Delivered.
Users are responsible for scanning all transferred files for viruses and malware. iSkills Marketplace will not be held responsible for any damages which might occur due to site usage, use of content or files transferred.

Feedback reviews provided by Buyers while completing an Order are an essential part of iSkills Marketplace's rating system. Reviews demonstrate the Buyer's overall experience with the Sellers and their service. Buyers are encouraged to communicate to the Seller any concerns experienced during their active order in regards to the service provided by the Seller.
Leaving a Buyer's feedback is a basic prerogative of a Buyer. Feedback reviews will not be removed unless there are clear violations of our Terms of Service and/or our Community Standards.
To prevent any misuse of our Feedback system, all feedback reviews must come from legitimate sales executed exclusively through the iSkills Marketplace platform from users within our Community. Purchases arranged, determined to artificially enhance Seller ratings, or to abuse the iSkills Marketplace platform with purchases from additional accounts, will result in a permanent suspension of all related accounts.
Feedback comments given by Buyers are publicly displayed on a Seller’s Gig page.
Work Samples are the delivered images and videos sent to a Buyer in a delivery message. Work Samples are added to a Seller's Live Portfolio on their Gig page if the Buyer chooses to publish the Work Sample while providing a public feedback review.
Withholding the delivery of services, files, or information required to complete the Gig’s service with the intent to gain favorable reviews or additional services is prohibited.
Responding and posting a review: Once work is delivered, the Buyer has three days to respond. If no response is provided within the response period, the Order will be considered completed.
Users are allowed to leave reviews on Orders up to 10 days after an Order is marked as complete. No new reviews may be added to an Order after 10 days.
Sellers may not solicit the removal of feedback reviews from their Buyers through mutual cancellations.
Once the Buyer submits his/her review, the Seller will receive a notification and will also have the opportunity to leave a review about working with the Buyer. Please Note: At this stage, Sellers cannot see the Buyer's review.
Once both Seller and Buyer have completed their reviews, or the 10 days have passed, all posted reviews are made public.
Responding to a review: Once both reviews from the Buyer and Seller have been published, the Seller can reply to the Buyer’s review from the Order page, seen on the Seller’s Gig page, beneath the Buyer’s feedback.
Feedback reviews are unavailable for orders made through the Logo Maker.

Buyers always have the option to pay in PKR or US$ by changing their currency.
If you paid for an Order in a currency other than US$ and your Order was later canceled for any reason, the amount returned to your iSkillian Balance would be based on the exchange rate as of the date of cancellation. Therefore, the returned amount may vary from the paid amount in local currency terms, while always maintaining the same US$ value.
Your iSkillian Balance is always valued in PKR or US$, even if it is displayed in a non-US$ or non-PKR currency. Therefore, should you choose to view your iSkillian Balance in any currency other than US$/PKR, it may change daily in accordance with exchange rate fluctuations, while always maintaining the same US$/PKR value. Users always have the option to view their iSkillian Balance in US$/PKR by changing their selected displayed currency.
iSkillian may be required by applicable laws to charge users with indirect taxes (such as Sales Tax, VAT or GST) or to withhold taxes. Any amount iSkillian will be required to collect will be in addition to the purchase amount and any other fees payable by the Buyer, and any amount iSkillian will be required to withhold will be deducted from the Seller’s revenue, as required by applicable laws.
Indirect taxes are in addition to the price shown on the site, and in any event, any such taxes will always be displayed to the Buyer before payment.
Users are responsible for paying any direct or indirect taxes, including any GST, VAT, or income tax, which may apply to them depending on residency, location or otherwise, under provisions of their jurisdiction.
We encourage our Buyers and Sellers to try and settle conflicts amongst themselves. If for any reason this fails after using the Resolution Center or if you encounter non-permitted usage on the Site, users can contact iSkillian's Customer Support department for assistance here.
Order cancellations can be performed on iSkillian, when eligible, by Customer Support or through the Resolution Center per order.
Filing a transaction dispute or reversing a payment through your payment provider or your bank is a violation of these Payment 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 an order, you are encouraged to use the Site's dispute resolution tools to attempt to resolve the matter.
iSkillian, through its Payment Services Provider, reserves the right to cancel orders or place funds on hold for any suspected fraudulent transactions made on the Site.
All transfer and assignment of intellectual property to the Buyer shall be subject to full payment and the delivery may not be used if payment is canceled for any reason.
If an order is canceled (for any reason), the funds paid will be returned to the Buyer’s iSkillian Balance.
Revisions to deliveries can be performed by Sellers based on the Seller’s Service and customer care. Sellers may determine the amount of revisions they wish to offer, including no revisions.
Requests for revisions can be performed through the Order Page while the order is marked as Delivered.
Requesting to gain more services from Sellers beyond the agreed requirements by using the Request Revisions button is not allowed.
iSkillian encourages Buyers and Sellers to resolve service disputes mutually using the Resolution Center.
Eligibility for requests to iSkillian to cancel an order will be assessed by our Customer Support team based on a number of factors, including violations of our Terms of Service and/or our Community Standards, general misconduct, and improper usage of the iSkillian delivery system. See below for Order specific eligibility.
Completed orders (or, where applicable, completed milestones) may be canceled, upon review of our Customer Support team, up to 14 days after the order (or Milestone) is marked as complete. Please be advised that orders cannot be partially canceled (i.e. we can only cancel the entire order when it is justified).
In rare circumstances where we find it appropriate, our Customer Support team may cancel a completed order even after 14 days have passed from its completion. In such cases, the amounts paid for the canceled order will be returned to the Buyer’s iSkillian Balance and will be deducted from the Seller’s iSkillian Balance or, if there are no sufficient amounts in the Seller’s iSkillian Balance, from future revenues of such Seller.
Orders are not eligible to be canceled based on the quality of service/materials delivered by the Seller if the service was rendered as described in the Service/Job Page. You may rate your experience with the Seller on the Order Page, including the overall level of service quality received.
You must use iSkillian Contact Center to address your concerns and desired resolution related to the service provided by their Seller prior to contacting Customer Support. Customer Support will not take any action against Orders where the applicable has failed to inform their Seller of issues related to the Seller’s service and will allow Sellers to provide a resolution first. This does not include non-permitted usage of iSkillian.
Any non-permitted usage of iSkillian encountered during an Order, after being reviewed by our Customer Support team, may result in the order being canceled. This includes, but not limited to; harassment, unlawful behavior, or other violations of iSkillian’s Terms of Service.
iSkillian Customer Support will cancel orders based on, but not limited to, the following reasons:
Active orders (after requirements were submitted to the Seller and before the Seller delivers on iSkillian):
The Seller is late and unresponsive for more than 24 hours while the order is marked as Late.
Users are abusive towards the other party through threats of low ratings or leveraging order materials (such as logins, personal information) against each other.
Users supplied or included copyright/trademark infringing materials as part of their requirements or the Seller’s delivery.
The user is no longer an active iSkillian user due to Terms of Service violations or closure of their account.
Delivered Orders (after the Seller clicks Deliver Now and before the order is marked as complete)
The Seller uses the Delivery system to extend the delivery due date to complete the requested service without providing the final delivered service. Note: Multiple reported offenses will result in permanent suspension of your account.
The Seller delivers no files and/or proof of work related to the agreed upon order requirements. Note: Subjectivity of the materials in question will be reviewed by our Customer Support team.
The Seller requests additional payments, on or off the iSkillian platform, by withholding the final delivery of services directly related to the agreed requirements.
The Seller is withholding the final delivery of services for improved ratings.
Users who abuse the Request Revisions button to gain more services from Sellers beyond the agreed requirements.
Users who threaten to leave a damaging review to gain more services from the Seller not related to the agreed requirements.
Completed Orders (after the order is marked as complete and before the 14-day limitation)
Users who have been reported to use copyright/trademark infringing materials after verification and with proof.
Users who did not purchase commercial use rights and are reported to have used the materials commercially. Note: Terms of Commercial use are found on the Seller’s Gig Page and cannot be retroactively included once the order is completed for over 14 days.
iSkillian Customer Support will review cases of Order delivery manipulation that prevents users from fully utilizing our Resolution Center that enabled the order to be marked as complete.
iSkillian reviews cases of payment provider chargebacks and disputes on behalf of Sellers. Although results vary per case due to each chargeback reason, we work hard on resolving disputes in the Seller’s favor. If the chargeback case allows, iSkillian (or one of iSkillian’s Payment Services Providers) will return parts or full revenue back to Sellers, otherwise the chargeback amount will be borne by the Seller.
iSkillian does not automatically refund payments made for canceled orders back to your payment provider. Funds from order cancellations are returned to the Buyer's iSkillian Balance and are available for future purchases on iSkillian.
Deposit refunds (i.e. refunds directly to your payment provider) can be performed by our Customer Support team, based on the Order’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 Support team. Such refunds may be subject to an additional fee.
iSkillian may make changes to these Payment Terms from time to time. When these changes are made, iSkillian will make a new copy of the terms available on this page.
You understand and agree that if you use iSkillian after the date on which the Payment Terms have changed, iSkillian will treat your use as acceptance of the updated Payment Terms.
