Sellers may not promote their Jobs or any Upency content via the Google Ads platform.
For security concerns, Upency 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 Upency accounts to a single withdrawal provider.
Sellers are allowed to post a select amount of active Jobs based on their purchases membership.

Jobs that are removed for violations are not eligible to be restored or edited.

Jobs are required to have an appropriate Job image related to the service offered. An option to upload 9 additional Job images are available to all Sellers.
Sellers must deliver the same quality of service as shown on their Job images. Recurring deliveries that don’t match the quality shown on the Job images may lead to the Seller’s account losing Seller status or becoming permanently disabled.

Eligible Jobs in select Categories may set up Job Packages to offer their services in structured formats with multiple price points for the selected Job.

Once payment is confirmed, your order will be created and given a unique Upency order number (#UO).
Sellers must deliver completed files and/or proof of work using the Deliver Work button (located on the Order page) according to the service that was purchased and advertised on their Job.
The Deliver Work button may not be abused by Sellers to circumvent Order guidelines described in these Terms of Service. Using the “Deliver Work” button when an Order was not fulfilled may result in a cancellation of that Order after review, affect the Seller’s rating and result in a warning to Seller.
An Order is marked as Complete after it is marked as Delivered and then accepted by a Buyer. An Order will be automatically marked as Complete if not accepted and no request for modification was submitted within 3 days after the Order was marked as Delivered.
Certain Jobs that offer local services might require Buyers and Sellers to meet in person in order for the Seller to perform the service. In such cases, users should note that Upency does not guarantee the behavior, conduct, safety, suitability or ability of either Buyers or Sellers. Both Buyers and Sellers agree that the entire risk arising out of their meeting and/or their use or performance of local services remains solely with them, and Upency has no responsibility or liability related to any local services provided by the Sellers. In the event that the service is performed on the Buyers’ premises, Buyers are encouraged to maintain proper insurance policies to cover their liability as the premise owner. Upency’s Terms of Service and Community Standards remain applicable to Orders that are performed outside of the marketplace (including, among others, the below restrictions on Unlawful Use, Inappropriate Behavior & Language, and Targeted Abuse).
When a Buyer orders a Job, the Seller is notified by email as well as notifications on the site while logged into the account.
Sellers are required to meet the delivery time they specified when creating their Jobs. Failing to do so will allow the Buyer to cancel the Order when an Order is marked as late and may harm the Seller’s status.
Sellers must send completed files and/or proof of work using the Deliver Completed Work button (located on the Order page) to mark the Order as Delivered.
Users are responsible for scanning all transferred files for viruses and malware. Upency will not be held responsible for any damages which might occur due to site usage, use of content or files transferred.
Buyers may use the “Request Revisions” feature located on the Order Page while an Order is marked as Delivered if the delivered materials do not match the Seller’s description on their Job page or they do not match the requirements sent to the Seller at the beginning of the order process.
Feedback reviews provided by Buyers while completing an Order are an essential part of Upency’s rating system. Reviews demonstrate the Buyer’s overall experience with the Sellers and their service.
Buyers are encouraged to communicate to the Seller any concerns experienced during their active order in regards to the service provided by the Seller.
Leaving a Buyer’s feedback is a basic prerogative of a Buyer. Feedback reviews will not be removed unless there are clear violations of our Terms of Service and/or our Community Standards.
To prevent any misuse of our Feedback system, all feedback reviews must come from legitimate sales executed exclusively through the Upency platform from users within our Community.
Feedback comments given by Buyers are publicly displayed on a Seller’s Job page.
Responding and posting a review: Once work is delivered, the Buyer has three days to respond. If no response is provided within the response period, the Order will be considered completed.
Sellers may not solicit the removal of feedback reviews from their Buyers through mutual cancellations.
Once the Buyer submits his/her review, the Seller will receive a notification.
Once both Seller and Buyer have completed their reviews, all posted reviews are made public.
