How to dispute a review on your PromoKit

If you receive an obscene, abusive, or fraudulent review, you may submit a dispute to have it removed.

To do this, go to your reviews and find the one you'd like to dispute. Open the review, and at the bottom of the page, you'll find a line of text with a link that says, "If you would like to dispute the authenticity of this review, you can submit the review dispute form." Open the review dispute form. Complete the requested fields, and click Submit Dispute

When you dispute a review, it will be held for arbitration while we complete the dispute process. This process includes reviewing all the information provided both in the dispute and in the messages and booking agreement associated with the gig. Our Customer Happiness team will use this information and various other criteria to determine whether the dispute can be immediately accepted or denied, or if further research is needed. In these cases, we may contact the reviewer for fact-checking. 

If the review is deemed valid, we will encourage you to work out your differences with the reviewer directly, and then, if mutually agreed, the review can possibly be removed. For example, let's say you are hired to provide services at a party. Murphy’s Law is in effect, and nothing goes as planned: the wheels fall off your truck on your way to the gig, your singer has a sudden bout of laryngitis, and Aunt Millie can’t stand your setlist. The client, obviously unhappy, gives you one star and a terrible review. You humbly and honestly discuss the issues and give a refund or agree to play her next party for free to make amends. Both sides are happy, the review has been removed or edited, and goodwill has been restored. And most importantly, you made it right, review or not.

If the dispute is denied and you aren't able to work out your differences with the client and ask them to remove it, we recommend you humbly accept the criticism and move on. If you wish, you can post a rebuttal to be displayed publicly with the review. Keep it honest and professional. Bad things happen, everyone understands that. A client seeing a bad review with an apologetic and genuine response can actually reflect really well on you and show you're human. You can also request reviews from your other clients to get more five-star reviews and increase your overall rating. 

Removing good reviews

If you receive a great rating but don't want it displayed on your profile, you may request to have the review removed. Just fill out the dispute form as you would any other review. As long as the rating is five stars, we will remove the review without going through the regular dispute process.
