Can I message my Pro directly?

Yes. During and after all jobs (except Quick Feedback), you can communicate with the Pro using our inbuilt messaging system.

What happens if my Pro misses the deadline?

If the Pro has not started a job before the the deadline, you then have the option to cancel it at any time for a full and immediate refund.

Pros may display examples of previous work they have carried out on Audiu. Examples act as a benchmark for the quality and style of service you can expect from a Pro.

If you feel that the service you received from a Pro was unacceptable, please get in touch at [email protected] We will mediate any disputes and offer a full refund where appropriate.

What does it mean if a Pro's availability is 'On Request'?

This means the Pro has 24 hours to accept or turn down a job. Some of our busier Pros require this flexibility.

What is a preapproved payments plan?

When requesting a service from an 'On Request' Pro, you may receive an email from PayPal indicating you have signed up for a "preapproved payments plan with Audiu". This is NOT a subscription. It simply allows Audiu to charge you only when the Pro accepts the job. No money will be removed from your account if the job is rejected or times out and the pre-approval will be cancelled.

How can I delete my Audiu account?

Please contact us via the chat panel or email [email protected] and we can flag your account for deletion.
