  • Violations to our Terms of Service.
  • General misconduct, such as harassment, unlawful behavior, etc.
  • Improper usage of GigTricks's delivery system.
  • Orders are not eligible to be cancelled based on the quality of service/materials delivered by the seller if the service was rendered as described in the Gig page. Buyers may rate their experience with the seller on the order page, including the overall level of service quality received.
  • GigTricks Customer Support will cancel orders based on, but not limited to, the following reasons:
  • Active Orders(after the buyer submits their requirements and before the seller delivers on GigTricks)

What if I have an issue with my seller or delivered service?

Buyers may contact Customer Support at any time to review your order for advice on how to proceed with their orders. Our Customer Support team will take many factors into consideration, such as the seller's ratings, responsiveness, and past order history to assess the most appropriate action to take. In most cases, buyers are directed to communicate further with their sellers if there's no justifiable reason to cancel the order.

Order cancellations, similar to Requesting Revisions for your delivered order, will not be done based on personal taste. Buyers are given the option to rate their experience with the seller and share their experience in a feedback review.

Avoid filing a dispute with your payment provider for your orders, as this is not in compliance with our Terms of Service, which may also result in restricting your account until those payment holds are cleared.

Each case is reviewed carefully by our Customer Support team to assess the most appropriate action. Additionally, we can cancel orders, which were made by mistake but will always check if the order is tied to an ongoing service to protect our sellers.  

What happens after an order is cancelled?

If an order is cancelled, the funds paid will be refunded to the buyer’s shopping balance. If your Gig was purchased with cleared revenue, the funds will return to your revenue balance. Your total account balance (revenue + shopping) can be found next to your username on the top menu in the right corner.

Additionally, when an order is cancelled, buyers no longer retain the rights to use any of the services or the items delivered to them. All transfer and assignment of intellectual property to the buyer shall be subject to full payment for the Gig, and the delivery may not be used if payment is cancelled for any reason.  

What happens if a dispute is opened and now the order is cancelled?

If a charge back was made on a purchase or is subject to review by a payment vendor - GigTricks will cancel the order automatically. Whenever a transaction is being reviewed by a payment vendor, we may be required to cancel a transaction completely or put it on hold for your own protection (for example - stolen credit card, other fraud activities, etc.). This is part of the service we provide to maintain a safe environment for our users.
