As Learn On Air we would like all our users to be satisfied. Our refund and cancelation (no-show) policy below covers unforeseeable or reasonable cancelations of online sessions.
Since LearnOnAir does not employ any instructors and due to the live nature of online lessons, we do not have an unconditional refund for “change of mind”. However, if the student who has purchased the session is unhappy with a session for whatever reason, he or she can be fully refunded by canceling the session and clicking on the refund button in the first 15 minutes of the session strictly. A person cannot apply for refund after the first 15 minutes of the session you have purchased.
Any instructor as the sole owner of the online lesson he or she is selling, may update or cancel any session of the advertised lesson if a reasonable issue preventing him or her to instruct. When an instructor cancels a session, our system automatically and fully refunds payments to all students who purchased the session. It is the discretion of the instructor to contact the student/s to offer a replacement session for another time. LearnOnAir does not guarantee such a replacement will be made and is not liable for any lessons that are not replaced by the instructor.
Cancellation (no-show) fee
If an instructor does not show up in the first 15 minutes of the session, the session is automatically canceled and the student is fully refunded. If the students does not show up in the first 15 minutes of the session, the session gets canceled, he or she gets charged 50% of the session as the cancellation (no-show) fee and refunded for the rest of the amount. LearnOnAir keeps its fixed commission (20 percent of the full amount) and sends the rest to the Instructor unless the instructor also did not show up for the session. In that case, LeanOnAir keeps the full amount of the cancellation fee.
Typically it takes 1-3 business days for the refund to be processed by PayPal. If you have not received your refund after 5 business days, however, please contact PayPal support. If Paypal does not see a refund in their records then please contact LearnOnAir Support.
