Planners always have the option to pay in EUR by changing their selected displayed currency.
If a Planner has paid for an Order in a currency other than EUR and the Order was later cancelled for any reason, the amount returned 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 EUR value.

Orders Basics (or Booking Basics)
Once payment is confirmed, your order will be created and given a unique Talent Jam order number (#FO).
Talents must deliver and execute at their best the Show/Service according to the service that was purchased and advertised on their Listing.
A booking must be completed and not be abused by Planners to circumvent the Order guidelines described in this Terms of Service.
A booking is marked as done 24 hours after the day the Show/Service has been completed. An order will be automatically marked as complete if no complaints or request for modification was submitted within 3 days after the order was marked as completed.
We encourage our Planners and Talents to try settling any disagreements or conflicts amongst themselves. If for any reason this fails or if you encounter non-permitted usage on the Platform, users can contact Talent Jam's Customer Support department for assistance.
When a Planner orders a Show/Service, the Talent is notified by email as well as notifications on the site when logged into the account.
Talents are required to meet the delivery and starting time the Planner had specified when creating the Order. Failing to do so will allow the Planner to cancel the order when an order is marked as late. This may also harm the Talent's status.
During their communication on Talent Jam, users are responsible for scanning all transferred files for viruses and malware. Talent Jam will not be held responsible for any damages which might occur due to site usage, use of content or files transferred.
Feedback reviews provided by Planners while completing an order are an essential part of the Talent Jam rating system. Reviews demonstrate the Planner's overall experience with the Talent and the Show/Service provided. Planners are encouraged to communicate with the Talent regarding any concerns experienced during their active order or the service provided by the Talent.
Leaving feedback is a basic privilege of a Planner. Feedback reviews will not be removed unless there are clear violations of our Terms of Service.
To prevent any misuse of our feedback system, all feedback reviews must come from legitimate sales executed exclusively through the Talent Jam platform from users within our Community. Purchases arranged, determined to artificially enhance Talent ratings, or to abuse the Talent Jam platform with purchases from additional accounts, will result in the permanent suspension of all related accounts.
Feedback comments by Planners are publicly displayed on a Talent’s Listing page.
Withholding the delivery of services, files, or information required to complete the Show/Service with the intent to gain favorable reviews or additional services is prohibited.
Once a Show/Service is delivered, the Planner has 7 days to post a review. If no review is provided within the response period, the order comments will be considered completed. No new reviews may be added to an order after 7 days. Talents may not solicit the removal of feedback reviews from their Planners through mutual cancellations.
Disputes and Cancellations Basics
We encourage our Planners and Talents to settle any dispute or disagreements amongst themselves. If this for any reason fails users can contact Talent Jam's Customer Support department for assistance here.
An Order can only, if eligible, be cancelled on Talent Jam Platform by your Order section, or in certain cases by Customer Support.
Filing a transaction dispute or reversing a payment through your payment provider or your bank before contacting Talent Jam Customer Support is a violation to the Terms of Service. Doing so may get your account temporarily or permanently disabled. Refunds can only be executed after the dispute has been resolved between both parties.
In the event that a Planner or Talent encounters an issue related to the service provided, you are encouraged to use the Talent Jam Customer Support to attempt to resolve the matter.
Talent Jam, through its Payment Services Providers, reserves the right to cancel orders or place funds on hold for any suspected fraudulent transactions made through the Platform.
All transfers and assignment of intellectual property to the Planner shall be subject to full payment for the Show/Service and the delivery shall not be used if payment is cancelled for any reason.
If an order is cancelled within the cancellation policy, the funds paid will be returned to the Planner’s account, excluding the service provider fees that may apply.
Talent Jam encourages Planners and Talents to resolve any disputes or disagreements mutually by using Customer Support.
Requests to Talent Jam for cancelling an order will be assessed by our Customer Support team based on a number of factors, including violations to our Terms of Service, general misconduct, and improper usage of the Talent Jam system. See below for Order specific eligibility.
Please be advised that orders cannot be partially cancelled. Talent Jam can only cancel the entire order when it is justified.
Orders are not eligible to be cancelled based on the quality of Show/Service or materials delivered by the Talent provided the service was delivered as described in the Listing page. Planners may rate their experience with the Talent on the Order Page, including the overall level of service quality received.
Planners must use Talent Jam Customer Support to address any concerns related to the service provided. Customer Support will not take any action against Orders where the Planner failed to inform the Talent of issues related to the Talent’s service and will allow Talents to provide a resolution first. This does not include non-permitted usage of Talent Jam Platform.
Any non-permitted usage of Talent Jam Platform encountered during an Order, after being reviewed by our Customer Support team, may result in the order being cancelled. This includes, but is not limited to, harassment, unlawful behaviour, or other violations of Talent Jam’s Terms of Service.

If for any circumstances or reasons a Planner wants to cancel an Order, Talent Jam will apply the cancellation policy of the Talent as shown below the Booking button.

Abuse and Spam - Multiple Accounts
The user is limited to only one active account in order to prevent fraud or abuse. Accounts that mislead the Talent Jam community or accounts determined to be additionally created to circumvent guidelines, promote competitive advantages will be disabled. Mass account creation will result in disabling all related accounts. Note: Any violation of Talent Jam Terms of Service is cause for permanent suspension of all accounts.
One account - Multiple listings
One Talent account can represent and post multiple Listings for a variety of Shows/Services. They all have to be trustworthy and realistic. All listings must comply with our Terms of Service.
Multiple users-one listing as a Band/Group
In order to create a Group/Band listing, one Talent only has to create the Listing. The user who set up the Listing will be entitled as the administrator (admin) for that Band/Group Listing and invite all the members via email from the Talent Listing page. The new members will be notified via email and will have to accept it trough their received email.
In the event a new member doesn’t have an active account on Talent Jam, he/she will also be invited to create a personal profile before completing the Group/Band merging procedure.
When a Talent creates a Band/Group listing, all talents included are obliged to act with the same dedication relevant to their Role in the Band/Group in order to provide the described Show/Service at their best. When a booking arrives to the Band/Group booking page, payment will be debited to the payment provider of the Admin Talent. The admin is held responsible for distributing the agreed amounts of money to the active Talents in the Band/Group following a successfully completed booking and according to their prior personal agreement. The redistribution of those funds between the Band/Group members can not be made through Talent Jam Payment Provider Service, thereby Talent Jam cannot be held responsible for the redistribution of funds.
We do not tolerate users who engage in targeted abuse or harassment towards other users on Talent Jam. This includes creating new multiple accounts to harass members through our message or ordering system.
