Levels

Karuf is all about helping Sellers leverage their skills. We seek to empower top-performing Sellers with helpful tools to grow their businesses. Sellers who invest in self-promotion may achieve greater customer satisfaction. And, if they deliver on time and maintain high quality and ratings, Karuf may reward them with new statuses, special opportunities, benefits, and tools that come with it. -Karuf Sellers can gain account Levels based on their activity, performance, and reputation. The advancement criteria can be found here. -Advancement in Levels is updated periodically by an automated system. -The current Levels a Seller can achieve are Level 1, 2, and Top Rated. -Sellers who cannot maintain their high-quality service, experience a severe drop in ratings, or stop delivering on time risk losing their Seller status and the benefits that come with it. For example, late deliveries, warnings to the Seller’s account, and cancellations can cause a Seller to move to a different Level. -Advanced levels provide their owners with additional benefits, including offering DSs for higher prices, or selling their DS in multiples. Top Rated Sellers . Top Rated Sellers are chosen manually by Karuf editors through an ongoing review process based on seniority, volume of sales, extremely high ratings, exceptional customer care, high order completion rate and community leadership. Top Rated Sellers gain access to more extensive features than previous levels, including exclusive access to beta features and VIP support. . Top Rated eligibility is constantly evaluated by Kruf to ensure that the quality standards and expectations of the Top-Rated selection is kept. Karuf retains the right to change a Top-Rated Seller status in light of such evaluation. In addition, Top Rated Sellers who cannot maintain their high-quality service through a severe drop in ratings, stop delivering on time, increased cancellation rate or violate our Terms of Service and/or our Community Standards, also risk losing their Top-Rated status and the benefits that come with it.




Custom Offer

. Sellers can also send Custom Offers addressing the specific requirements of a Buyer. Custom Offers are defined by the Seller with the exact description of the service, the price, and the time expected to deliver the service. Custom Offers are sent from the conversation page. Services provided through Custom Offers may not violate Karuf’s Terms of Service and/or our Community Standards.




BUYERS Basics

. You may not offer direct payments to Sellers using payment systems outside of the Karuf platform. Karuf retains the right to use all publicly published delivered works for Karuf marketing and promotional purposes. Buyers may request a specific service from the Post a Request feature. Users should refrain from using the Post a Request feature for any purpose other than looking for services on Karuf.




BUYERS Purchasing

. Please refer to the Payment Terms for making Payments through the Karuf platform and to learn about fees and taxes. In addition, Buyers can request a Custom Order which addresses specific Buyer requirements, and receive a Custom Offer from Sellers through the site. You may not offer Sellers to pay, or make payment using any method other than through the karuf.com site. In case you have been asked to use an alternative payment method, please report it immediately to Customer Support here.




ORDERS Basics

. Once payment is confirmed, your order will be created and given a unique Karuf order number. 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 DS. 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 the 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. The Buyer may extend such period by up to 5 additional days. 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 Karuf's Customer Support department for assistance here. For more information about disputes, Order cancellations, and refunds please refer to the Payment Terms.




Handling Orders

. When a Buyer orders a DS, 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 DSs. 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. Karuf will not be held responsible for any damages which might occur due to site usage, use of the 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 Ds page or they do not match the requirements sent to the Seller at the beginning of the order process.




Reviews

. Feedback reviews provided by Buyers while completing an Order are an essential part of Karuf'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 regard 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 Karuf platform from users within our Community. Purchases arranged, determined to artificially enhance Seller ratings, or to abuse the Karuf platform with purchases from additional accounts, will result in a permanent suspension of all related accounts. Feedback comments given by Buyers are publicly displayed on a Seller’s DS page. Work Samples are the delivered images and videos sent to a Buyer in a delivery message. Withholding the delivery of services, files, or information required to complete the Gig’s service with the intent to gain favorable reviews or additional services is prohibited. 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. Users are allowed to leave reviews on Orders up to 10 days after an Order is marked as complete. No new reviews may be added to an Order after 10 days. 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 and will also have the opportunity to leave a review about working with the Buyer. Please Note: At this stage, Sellers cannot see the Buyer's review. Once both Seller and Buyer have completed their reviews, or the 10 days have passed, all posted reviews are made public. Responding to a review: Once both reviews from the Buyer and Seller have been published, the Seller can reply to the Buyer’s review from the Order page, seen on the Seller’s DS page, beneath the Buyer’s feedback.




Disputes and Cancellations

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 Karuf's Customer Support department for assistance here. For more information about disputes, Order cancellations, and refunds please refer to the Payment Terms.
