Step 6 – Cancellation Policy/ Refund Policy

Repercussions of frequent cancellations 

If the walker decides to cancel their assignments more than 3 times continuously/back to back they will be banned for a period of 30 days/1month from the system. 

Step 7 – Explanation of Sitter Performance Scoreboard

As mentioned above, we tend to relax the commission when your engagement with our company is more evolved and when there are more orders that are completed.

When you Join PawSpace – you are a Non – prime certified service provider, however, post completion of certain milestones – you can rank up to a prime and further Super Prime service provider.  

PARAMETERS FOR Walking SCOREBOARD

  • Booking score – This score consists of your overall booking rate, which looks at the number of new customers who contacted you for the first time and measures that against how many of them end up booking with you.
  • Renewal score – tells how often the first-time clients book with you again. If you haven’t booked enough repeat clients to generate a score yet, then it may appear to be less. 
  • Quality Score – Score that counts the positive and negative reviews by customers. The positive reviews will increase the score and the negative will decrease. This will overall affect your ranking on the page in your respective sub-location.
  • Cancellation Score – A score that counts how many times you have cancelled the customer orders from your end. A high cancellation score can result in blocking your account for a period of 3-6months. 
  • Referral Score – This basically counts the number of referrals you got to our platform and engaged in service through PawSpace.  A high score is favourable as it will push your profile in ranks and get you more business over a period of time.
