Terms of Service

01 | General Terms

  • Prices are subject to change based on demand.

  • I have the right to reject any order for any reason.

02 | Payment

  • Currency accepted is USD (US Dollar) and can be paid through PayPal (or bank transfer if based in Australia).

  • Payment can be paid either 100% upfront or split 50% upfront and 50% upon delivery.

  • Don't send me any payment before I have agreed to give you a slot and requested you to send me the payment.

03 | Process & Delivery

  • The time it takes to finish your request varies from 1 week - 3 months depending on factors such as health, the complexity of the written piece, other work, and responsibilities. I will always aim for your requested time frame.

  • Once the piece is finished you will receive the comments alongside your manuscript and a final report. Note that there is no physical product.

  • The preferred word processor for beta reading, making comments and writing a final report is Google Docs. It allows me to make comments in an intuitive way and can be shared easily between the author and myself. I can also access it on any device to continue working on it. For this, I will request a Google Doc of your full manuscript. If there are any issues providing this, we can discuss them.

04 | Revisions

  • In the final report, if I've missed an aspect you were expecting a comment on, I will fulfil that request within a week of the revision request.

  • If major revisions from your end have been completed and you want me to beta read again, an additional fee may be added and can be negotiated.

  • If your request is unclear to start with changes will come at an extra charge.

05 | Copyright

  • I, Quinton Li (the beta reader and editor):

    • I reserve the right to cancel and refund the order at any time for any reason.

    • I will NOT claim the copyright of the manuscript provided.

    • I will NOT claim the intellectual property (IP) of the manuscript provided.

    • I will consider the author as a client (testimonial presented on the website and name mentioned in the client list) unless the author wishes for their details as a client to remain anonymous.

  • You (the author): 

    • You retain the copyright of the manuscript provided.

    • You retain the rights to the intellectual property (IP).

    • You reserve the right to query and publish your manuscript. It can be used for commercial purposes.

    • You reverse the right to deny any suggestions made.

06 | Cancellation and Refund Policy

  • The buyer is not allowed a refund once I started working on the request.

  • If for any reason I am unable to start your request you will receive a full refund.

  • If you cancel your order before I started it, you can get a full refund.

  • If you are getting a refund, do not request a PayPal chargeback. I will transfer the money back to you myself.

  • If you request a PayPal chargeback at any point when you were not allowed to ask for a refund, I will decline the chargeback and supply PayPal with our conversations in which we talk about the request as evidence that I have completed work for you. Furthermore, you will be blacklisted for requesting my work again.
