Have You Ever Thought About Having A Refund Policy For Your VA Biz? If Not, Now’s The Time!

Do you have a refund policy in your Virtual Assistant business? It seems like a simple enough question but there is more than one answer to it. It depends on what you’re selling (hours, packages, digital products) and how you run your business.

For example, if you sell your time (retainer plans), do you refund a client if they’re unhappy or if they have “left-over” hours? What about if you’re selling expertise (packages)? Honestly, there is no right or wrong way to go about refunds. You can offer them or not. It’s all about what works for you. Remember my motto is your business, your choice.

Clearly Communicate Your Refund Policy

The most important thing is to decide and then be sure your contracts and business policies are clear on your refund policy. It has to be clear to your clients what your policy is on refunds and, if you do offer them, how they go about getting one.

I didn’t offer refunds across the board when I was selling services, and even now, I don’t offer refunds on my coaching programs. But I also reserved the right to look at any client who wasn’t happy to see if a refund was the right approach even though I stated “no refunds”. At the end of the day, you want to have happy clients, and sometimes that might mean giving a partial or full refund.

Do you offer refunds? I’d love to know. Please take a moment to leave me a comment and share your thoughts.
