Deposits, Refunds, Fees and Payout Payments Policy (coming soon)

We use Photocoins as a bargaining chip to pay for services. Once registered you have 0.00 Photocoins on Photoskill.net balance. 1 (One) Photocoin is equal to 1 (One) Pound Sterling UK (GBP). It is like your wallet. You can make deposits by your bank card or other method we provide on payment page. We do not charge fee for depositing funds. You cannot withdraw funds you deposited, but full refund is available within 30 days of original payment without fee. You use your Photoskill.net balance to buy services from others. You can use your Photoskill.net balance only to pay for services within the platform.

If you are unhappy about received services with any of the sellers, you may have a chance for partial refund from the seller. You must agree refund with the seller. If seller agrees to refund, you will get back 85% of the original payment from the seller. We do not refund our commission in this case.

Setting the price for your services to sell you agree with our 15% fee. Once you sold any of your services we charge you 15% fee. So you get on your balance 85% of your sale. Transfer of funds (photocoins) to your balance for completed orders occurs after the complete fulfillment of your order. Photoskill.net charges fee on your sales only. So we do not charge you in addition for photocoins deposits and withdrawals to/from your Photoskill.net balance.

Only funds received from others (earned) are available for payout. At the moment we payout using PayPal or Transferwise. We never charge in addition for incoming or outgoing transactions to/from your Photoskill.net balance. To make a payout we would ask your account details like PayPal or Transferwise registered Email and your full name. Once you provided those details we will be able to send payouts. It could take up to 7 days in some certain circumstances. You can request a payout only when the threshold of the Available Payout balance is 200 Photocoins or above. After you request a payment, the transfer goes to the account of the selected payment system. The payment is made in Pounds Sterling UK in the equivalent of 1 (one) Photocoin = 1 (one) Pound Sterling UK (GBP). If your local currency is different from GBP (£) then your bank or payment system will add an additional fee for conversion funds when you make a payment or receive it. It depends on your bank and is not controlled by us. We work nearly with all countries in the world.

In terms of security we use the most advanced technologies and services for depositing and withdrawing funds. We are fully compliant with the PCI Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
