Do you provide a refund of the Premium pass?
An employer who purchased a Premium pass typically find the right helper within a few days. If you do not get a good level of engagement, you may contact us; we will be happy to review the situation, identify the potential reason and suggest some adjustments if necessary.
While we do not provide a refund of the Premium pass, if you purchased a Premium pass but found your helper on your own (so you did not make use of the mobile app), we will offer you a $50 discount on the service fee if we handle the hiring.
