- Payments, Service Guarantee and Claims
The WCR Agency supplies a medium through which Requesters can connect with professionals, request services and subsequently make payments for services.

We will charge your credit card according to the amount agreed by the user and the service provider and you hereby authorise us to charge the credit or debit card on file in your WCR account. We will use third party services to process credit card information. We retain the right, at our sole discretion, to place a hold on your credit card for an ordered or completed service.
If there is no complaint from a requester 24 hours following completion of a service we will mark the service as closed. If the requester has agreed with the professional to extend the or reduce the hours of the service, the requester has the responsibility to notify WCR
Any payments paid outside the WCR Agency are not subject to our Service Guarantee. No refunds or credits will be provided once the requester’s credit card has been charged except in extenuating circumstances for which we alone use our sole discretion.
While every effort is made to ensure the security of all credit card information, we expressly disclaim any liability for any damage relating to information passing to any third party and you agree to hold us harmless for any damages that may arise.
The rate per hour or job rate depends on various factors such as location of the job and how frequently a service is re-ordered.
After a service has been performed, if you are not completely satisfied with that service, you are eligible for our SG provided that you report the issue within 24 hours of the appointment. Calls are to be made to our customer service telephone number. Once we have been notified of a customer complaint, we will ensure that the service is re-done by the provider to your satisfaction so it is important that the requester enables the service to be repeated by giving an opportunity for it to be re-done.
WCR’s Service Guarantee is limited only to payments made by you and does not include other costs, liability, damages, injury or claim arising from or in connection with the services. We will ensure that the provider is fully insured and vetted.
