DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE

WanderSnap Limited (WanderSnap or “We”) provides a platform via its website (the “Site”) to a community of registered users (“Users” or “you”) to book a snapper for photo-shoot service. We combine a community of adventurers and story-tellers with one easy-to-use web platform to inspire snaps for good. For every booking, $5 will contribute to photography training for those underprivileged around Asia. We welcome snappers from all destinations, with skills in DSLR, mobile, drone, underwater and 360-degree photography. Additional services may be offered by us from time to time, depending on the capacity of snappers in each destination. The following are the terms of service (“Terms”) for using the Site and the Services.

HOW IT WORKS

Travellers are free to submit a booking request to any snapper of their choosing. Snappers are required then to respond within 24 hours to such booking requests, either by accepting or refusing a booking with fair reason (snappers are required to select the reason to refuse bookings). Snappers are not allowed to discriminate by race, gender, cultural or religious affiliation as are a community that enforces inclusiveness rather than division.

Upon acceptance of a booking, snappers and travelers can coordinate last-mile logistics of the Snapventure with each other via My Messages, email, or phone SMS. Contact info of the opposite party will only be made available under View Order Details after snapper has accepted the request. Travelers are then required to settle payment before the Snapventure’s commencement to ensure that time is booked off in snapper’s schedule. Payment amount charged will be booking amount with service fee added.

During the shoot, snappers and travelers are responsible for coordinating a time and place to meet, and subsequently to shoot. Snapper has to capture enough images in order to deliver the number of edited and raw footage as specified in their individual profile pages. Transport, admission and any other additional costs incurred as a result of the Snapventure vision will be paid for by traveler on their own accord, off-platform.

After a shoot has finished, snapper has to upload at least 5 edited photos within 24 hours to the My Snapventures gallery feature, in order to seek feedback from traveler on editing style. Snappers are welcomed to upload more, but the minimum is 5 edited photos within 24 hours. Thereafter, each snapper is responsible for uploading the number of edited snaps to fulfill rest of the gallery per their profile deliverable commitments.

Snappers and travelers alike are asked to review each other at the end of the booking, so as to improve the overall quality of the community. Travelers must first approve the gallery in their My Snapventures, in order for the review capability to open up, and for snappers to ultimately receive payment for their services from us.

In the case of a refund request, requests must be submitted within 72 hours after a gallery is shared; WanderSnap is committed otherwise to grant refunds if reasonable. In the case of cancellations, there will be a last-minute penalty charged, in accordance to cadence set forh on each snapper's individual profile in terms of number of hours prior to shoot for cancellation, and penalty to be charged. For each cancellation, there will also be a service fee to the platform in addition to the penalty itself to cover overheads. Whenever in doubt, please feel free to write hey@wandersnap.co directly to clarify.

PHOTO TRANSFER

Photos from each snapventure must be transferred via WanderSnap's in-house gallery tool. This is to ensure a standarized experience across all users despite different geographical limitations and cultural preferences. Any snapper who cannot abide by this will be possibly eliminated from the community, not exclusive to using tools like Google Photos, Dropbox, 360Yun, Baidu, Wetransfer, Facebook Photos, Instagram, Mail, etc.

REMITTANCE TO SNAPPERS

Payments are typically settled once a week by WanderSnap team. They are settled by the chronology of Snapventure bookings after each payment has first been cleared for fraud by Stripe, which can typically take 4-6 weeks. This is also conditional to whether the Traveller has approved the Snapventure gallery via their user dashboard. Remittance will be paid out via the method of payment stated under "Get Paid" tab, as denoted by each individual snapper, net of the service fee to the platform as reflected on the date of remittance. 

FOREIGN CURRENCY

WanderSnap’s online platform facilitates bookings between snappers and users who may prefer to pay in a currency different from their destination currency, which may require foreign currency conversions to accommodate these differing currency preferences. Although the WanderSnap platform allows users to view the price of Listings in a number of currencies, the currencies available for users to make and receive payments may be limited, and may not include the default currency in any given geographic location.

Details regarding currency conversion, including any associated fees, are detailed in the Payments Terms.
