Advisable’s Risk-Free Guarantee


As part of our commitment to our clients, Advisable offers an 8 hour risk-free trial for all new projects: if you’re not 100% satisfied, then Advisable will pay the freelancer out of pocket and identify another freelancer for you.

What does this mean for you as a Client?

  • Zero risk: There is no risk for you as long as you act professionally
  • Assign a trial task: It is a no-brainer to assign a trial-task to take advantage of this guarantee!

How do I assign a trial task?

  • Your freelancer will propose a trial task (you can request this in the interview or by messaging your freelancer directly)
    • A good trial task allows your freelancer to showcase their fit for the larger project, ideally via a well-defined output
  • You just need to “assign” that task, then that’s it! Your freelancer will begin work ASAP

I’m not 100% satisfied – how do I get my money back?

If you’re not 100% satisfied with your freelancer’s work, please follow these steps:

1. Click “Stop Working” and/or let your Advisable account manager know ASAP (and always within 3 days of task commencing)

Advisable will only cover the first 8 hours of work, so it is your responsibility to provide a timely update to ensure that the freelancer does not work beyond this point.

2. Complete a short feedback form

We will ask you to fill in a short feedback form (we use the results of this form to determine whether the freelancer behaved in a professional manner that warrants Advisable paying them out) to rate your freelancer from 1 to 5 (strongly disagree to strongly agree) across the following metrics:

  • The freelancer communicated in a timely and professional manner
  • The freelancer adhered to the schedule they laid out
  • The freelancer had a project kick-off meeting or otherwise ensured that we were both clear on deliverables, expectations, etc.
  • The freelancer completed the work that they promised they would
  • The freelancer completed the work to the best of their abilities

A final word on our Guarantee

We expect clients to behave in a professional manner and engage in the recruitment process in a way that is respectful of freelancers’ and Advisable’s time.

We appreciate that not all client/freelancer matches will be a success, and this guarantee is designed to mitigate that.

However, we do not tolerate any lapse in the professionalism of our clients or freelancers. In the event of a dispute, clients who do not adhere to Advisable’s professional expectations will not be refunded and will be removed from the Advisable platform.
