These Terms are supplemental to iSkillian’s General Terms of Service as applicable (collectively, the “Terms of Service”).
Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the respective meanings given to them in the Terms of Service.
iSkillian Balance is the aggregated amount of your Revenue as a Seller and/or returned payments from canceled orders as a Buyer and/or your iSkillian Business Balance (as defined in the iSkillian Business Terms of Service).
Payment Services Provider(s) are service providers that provide payment services to Buyers and Sellers in connection with the iSkillian platform, including with respect to collection of funds from Buyers in connection with purchases, remittance and withdrawal of funds to Sellers, currency exchange services in connection with payments and withdrawals in local currencies, and the holding of funds in connection with iSkillian Balances.
Revenue is the money that Sellers earn from completed orders and can either withdraw or use to purchase on iSkillian, subject to these Terms.
Each Service you sell and successfully complete, accredits your account with revenue equal to specific percentage of the purchase amount.
iSkillian accredits Sellers once an order is completed. See the "Orders” section in the Terms of Service for a definition of a completed order.
If an order is canceled (for any reason), the funds paid will be returned to the Buyer’s iSkillian Balance.
Sellers are responsible for paying any direct or indirect taxes, including any GST, VAT or income tax, which may apply to them depending on residency, location or otherwise, under provisions of their jurisdiction. Sellers represent and warrant that they comply, and will comply at all times, with their obligations under income tax provisions in their jurisdiction. The price shown on the service/job page or on the order page is inclusive of all such taxes and charges that may apply to the Sellers.
Appointment as Limited Payment Collection Agent: Seller hereby appoints iSkillian as Seller’s limited authorized payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting payments (via its Payment Services Provider, if applicable) from Buyer, and remitting those payments to Seller. Seller agrees that payment from Buyer to iSkillian shall be considered the same as a made directly to Seller. Buyer’s payment obligation to Seller will be satisfied upon receipt of payment by iSkillian (or its Payment Services Provider, as applicable), and iSkillian (via its Payment Services Provider, as applicable) is responsible for remitting the funds to the Seller in the manner described in these Payment Terms. In the event that iSkillian (via Payment Services Provider) does not remit any such amounts to Seller, the Seller will have recourse only against iSkillian and not the Buyer directly. Seller agrees that iSkillian may describe or otherwise reflect the terms contained herein in any terms of service, receipts, disclosures, or notices including, but not limited to, receipts provided to Buyers that iSkillian may deem necessary or prudent.
iSkillian partners with Payment Services Providers for purposes of collecting payments from Buyers, transferring such payments from Buyers to Sellers, and holding funds in connection with iSkillian Balances. All payments services in connection with the withdrawal of funds on the iSkillian platform are performed by iSkillian’s Payment Services Providers.
To withdraw your revenue, you must have an account with at least one of iSkillian's Payment Service Providers for the withdrawal methods listed below. All funds eligible for Withdrawal will be held on your behalf at an account with iSkillian’s Payment Services Provider. All payment services, including withdrawal services, will be provided by iSkillian’s Payment Services Provider.
Your iSkillian profile can be associated with only one account from each iSkillian withdrawal method. A Payment Service Provider withdrawal account can be associated with only one iSkillian profile.
Revenues are only made available for withdrawal from the Revenue page following a safety clearance period of 14 days after the order is marked as complete. Few Sellers are eligible to withdraw revenue following a safety clearance period of 7 days after the order is marked as complete.
Sellers may withdraw their revenues using one of iSkillian’s withdrawal options (see Withdrawal Section below regarding payment terms). To withdraw your available revenue, you must click on the designated withdrawal provider to initiate the withdrawal process.
For security concerns, iSkillian may temporarily disable a Seller’s ability to withdraw revenue to prevent fraudulent or illicit activity. This may come as a result of security issues, improper behavior reported by other users, or associating multiple iSkillian accounts to a single withdrawal provider.
Withdrawals can only be made in the amount available to you.
Withdrawal fees vary depending on the withdrawal method.
Withdrawals are final and cannot be undone. We will not be able to reverse this process once it has begun.
In certain cases, Sellers may withdraw Revenues in several different currencies. All currency exchange services in connection with such withdrawals are performed by iSkillian’s Payment Services Providers. Your iSkillian Balance is always derived from its US$ value and, therefore, the local currency amount of your iSkillian Balance may change daily in accordance with exchange rate fluctuations and also includes conversion fees. Sellers always have the option to withdraw Revenues in PKR and in some cases in USD.
Sellers will be able to withdraw their revenues from disabled accounts after a safety period of 90 days following full verification of ownership of the account in question, from the day of the last cleared payment received in their account and subject to iSkillian's approval.

Buyers pay iSkillian to create an order from a Seller’s Service page or Custom Offer, using the Order Now button. iSkillian partners with Payment Services Providers for purposes of collecting all payments from Buyers, transferring such payments from Buyers to Sellers, and holding funds in connection with iSkillian Balances. All payments services in connection with the collection of funds on the iSkillian platform are performed by iSkillian’s Payment Services Providers.
iSkillian serves as Seller’s limited authorized payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting payments (via its Payment Services Provider, if applicable) from Buyer, and remitting those payments to Seller. Buyer’s payment obligation to Seller will be satisfied upon receipt of payment by iSkillian (or its Payment Services Provider, as applicable), and iSkillian (via its Payment Service Provider, as applicable) is responsible for remitting the funds to the Seller in the manner described in these Payment Terms. In the event that iSkillian (via Payment Services Provider) does not remit any such amounts to Seller, the Seller will have recourse only against iSkillian and not the Buyer directly.

Additional payment methods may apply in certain locations. More information on available payment methods is available here.
Service fees are added at the time of purchase where you can review and accept the total amount requested to pay. These fees cover administrative fees. As of March 2021, the service fees are 5.5% of the purchase amount. For purchases under $50 an additional $2 small order fee will be applied.
Your existing iSkillian Balance will be automatically applied to your next purchase.
You may not offer Sellers to pay, or make payment using any method other than through the iSkillian.com site. In case you have been asked to use an alternative payment method, please report it immediately to Customer Support here.
You agree to receive invoices and/or payment receipts from iSkillian in electronic form as PDF documents, by email or through the Site.

You can pay on iSkillian in several different currencies. Unless stated otherwise, you will be charged in the currency displayed on the payment page. All currency exchange services in connection with payments in local currencies are performed by iSkillian’s Payment Services Providers. In certain cases, however, when certain currencies are not supported by certain payment methods, you will be charged in PKR or US$ even if the price is displayed in another currency. In any event, the actual charged amount (in the actual payment currency) will be clearly disclosed to you before you complete the payment.
Note that all prices on iSkillian are derived always from their original US$ or PKR price and, therefore, non-US$ or non-PKR currency prices may change daily in accordance with exchange rate fluctuations and may also include conversion fees. Buyers always have the option to pay in PKR or US$ by changing their currency.
If you paid for an Order in a currency other than US$ and your Order was later canceled for any reason, the amount returned to your iSkillian Balance would be based on the exchange rate as of the date of cancellation. Therefore, the returned amount may vary from the paid amount in local currency terms, while always maintaining the same US$ value.
Your iSkillian Balance is always valued in PKR or US$, even if it is displayed in a non-US$ or non-PKR currency. Therefore, should you choose to view your iSkillian Balance in any currency other than US$/PKR, it may change daily in accordance with exchange rate fluctuations, while always maintaining the same US$/PKR value. Users always have the option to view their iSkillian Balance in US$/PKR by changing their selected displayed currency.
iSkillian may be required by applicable laws to charge users with indirect taxes (such as Sales Tax, VAT or GST) or to withhold taxes. Any amount iSkillian will be required to collect will be in addition to the purchase amount and any other fees payable by the Buyer, and any amount iSkillian will be required to withhold will be deducted from the Seller’s revenue, as required by applicable laws.
Indirect taxes are in addition to the price shown on the site, and in any event, any such taxes will always be displayed to the Buyer before payment.
Users are responsible for paying any direct or indirect taxes, including any GST, VAT, or income tax, which may apply to them depending on residency, location or otherwise, under provisions of their jurisdiction.
We encourage our Buyers and Sellers to try and settle conflicts amongst themselves. If for any reason this fails after using the Resolution Center or if you encounter non-permitted usage on the Site, users can contact iSkillian's Customer Support department for assistance here.
Order cancellations can be performed on iSkillian, when eligible, by Customer Support or through the Resolution Center per order.
Filing a transaction dispute or reversing a payment through your payment provider or your bank is a violation of these Payment Terms. Doing so may get your account temporarily or permanently disabled. Note: Once you have filed a dispute with your payment provider, the funds will be ineligible for a refund due to our obligations towards the payment provider.
In the event that you encounter an issue related to the service provided in an order, you are encouraged to use the Site's dispute resolution tools to attempt to resolve the matter.
iSkillian, through its Payment Services Provider, reserves the right to cancel orders or place funds on hold for any suspected fraudulent transactions made on the Site.
All transfer and assignment of intellectual property to the Buyer shall be subject to full payment and the delivery may not be used if payment is canceled for any reason.
If an order is canceled (for any reason), the funds paid will be returned to the Buyer’s iSkillian Balance.
Revisions to deliveries can be performed by Sellers based on the Seller’s Service and customer care. Sellers may determine the amount of revisions they wish to offer, including no revisions.
Requests for revisions can be performed through the Order Page while the order is marked as Delivered.
Requesting to gain more services from Sellers beyond the agreed requirements by using the Request Revisions button is not allowed.
iSkillian encourages Buyers and Sellers to resolve service disputes mutually using the Resolution Center.
Eligibility for requests to iSkillian to cancel an order will be assessed by our Customer Support team based on a number of factors, including violations of our Terms of Service and/or our Community Standards, general misconduct, and improper usage of the iSkillian delivery system. See below for Order specific eligibility.
Completed orders (or, where applicable, completed milestones) may be canceled, upon review of our Customer Support team, up to 14 days after the order (or Milestone) is marked as complete. Please be advised that orders cannot be partially canceled (i.e. we can only cancel the entire order when it is justified).
In rare circumstances where we find it appropriate, our Customer Support team may cancel a completed order even after 14 days have passed from its completion. In such cases, the amounts paid for the canceled order will be returned to the Buyer’s iSkillian Balance and will be deducted from the Seller’s iSkillian Balance or, if there are no sufficient amounts in the Seller’s iSkillian Balance, from future revenues of such Seller.
Orders are not eligible to be canceled based on the quality of service/materials delivered by the Seller if the service was rendered as described in the Service/Job Page. You may rate your experience with the Seller on the Order Page, including the overall level of service quality received.
You must use iSkillian Contact Center to address your concerns and desired resolution related to the service provided by their Seller prior to contacting Customer Support. Customer Support will not take any action against Orders where the applicable has failed to inform their Seller of issues related to the Seller’s service and will allow Sellers to provide a resolution first. This does not include non-permitted usage of iSkillian.
Any non-permitted usage of iSkillian encountered during an Order, after being reviewed by our Customer Support team, may result in the order being canceled. This includes, but not limited to; harassment, unlawful behavior, or other violations of iSkillian’s Terms of Service.
iSkillian Customer Support will cancel orders based on, but not limited to, the following reasons:
Active orders (after requirements were submitted to the Seller and before the Seller delivers on iSkillian):
The Seller is late and unresponsive for more than 24 hours while the order is marked as Late.
Users are abusive towards the other party through threats of low ratings or leveraging order materials (such as logins, personal information) against each other.
Users supplied or included copyright/trademark infringing materials as part of their requirements or the Seller’s delivery.
The user is no longer an active iSkillian user due to Terms of Service violations or closure of their account.
Delivered Orders (after the Seller clicks Deliver Now and before the order is marked as complete)
The Seller uses the Delivery system to extend the delivery due date to complete the requested service without providing the final delivered service. Note: Multiple reported offenses will result in permanent suspension of your account.
The Seller delivers no files and/or proof of work related to the agreed upon order requirements. Note: Subjectivity of the materials in question will be reviewed by our Customer Support team.
The Seller requests additional payments, on or off the iSkillian platform, by withholding the final delivery of services directly related to the agreed requirements.
The Seller is withholding the final delivery of services for improved ratings.
Users who abuse the Request Revisions button to gain more services from Sellers beyond the agreed requirements.
Users who threaten to leave a damaging review to gain more services from the Seller not related to the agreed requirements.
Completed Orders (after the order is marked as complete and before the 14-day limitation)
Users who have been reported to use copyright/trademark infringing materials after verification and with proof.
Users who did not purchase commercial use rights and are reported to have used the materials commercially. Note: Terms of Commercial use are found on the Seller’s Gig Page and cannot be retroactively included once the order is completed for over 14 days.
iSkillian Customer Support will review cases of Order delivery manipulation that prevents users from fully utilizing our Resolution Center that enabled the order to be marked as complete.
iSkillian reviews cases of payment provider chargebacks and disputes on behalf of Sellers. Although results vary per case due to each chargeback reason, we work hard on resolving disputes in the Seller’s favor. If the chargeback case allows, iSkillian (or one of iSkillian’s Payment Services Providers) will return parts or full revenue back to Sellers, otherwise the chargeback amount will be borne by the Seller.
iSkillian does not automatically refund payments made for canceled orders back to your payment provider. Funds from order cancellations are returned to the Buyer's iSkillian Balance and are available for future purchases on iSkillian.
Deposit refunds (i.e. refunds directly to your payment provider) can be performed by our Customer Support team, based on the Order’s original payment amount and currency. To prevent fraud and abuse, we limit the total amount of times users can request a payment provider refund, which is subject to review by our Customer Support team. Such refunds may be subject to an additional fee.
iSkillian may make changes to these Payment Terms from time to time. When these changes are made, iSkillian will make a new copy of the terms available on this page.
You understand and agree that if you use iSkillian after the date on which the Payment Terms have changed, iSkillian will treat your use as acceptance of the updated Payment Terms.
