Starting December 16, you will be able to leave feedback for the party you worked with, even after Arbitration cases. Just like other feedback instances, you will have 60 days to leave feedback.
Why are we changing this policy?
Previously, we did not allow parties to leave feedback following an Arbitration case. As a result, some members used Arbitration as a method to simply avoid receiving negative feedback. This change closes this loophole.
Misunderstandings and human errors may at times result in unjustified feedback. Accordingly, all Guru.com members can choose to block a small portion of their feedback. If you receive an unjust feedback following an Arbitration case, you can opt to block feedback using your blocking power.
How much blocking power do you have?
Your blocking power is ten percent of your cumulative Guru.com earnings over the last 12 months, less the value of blocked feedback records. For example:
|$100,000||Last 12 month’s earnings|
|$10,000||Initial blocking power|
|$1,000||Dollar value of invoices associated with feedback you blocked to date|
|$9,000||Your remaining blocking power|
In this example, you can block any combination of feedback for invoices totaling $9,000.
To view how much blocking power you have:
- On the top navigation bar, click “Payments,” and click “Manage Feedback.”
- Click ”My Blocking Power” in the left-hand column.
