User Refund Policy
Our goal is to provide amazing kids entertainment and we hope that every event you book through Yombu is amazing. But we also understand that sometimes things happen and outside circumstances, traffic or accidents can cause unforeseen issues that result in a less than ideal experience for our clients.
In the unlikely event that you are not satisfied with your booking, we have created a refund policy to address any issues that may arise.
As a reminder, Yombu is a marketplace that connects party planners with entertainers who accept the event in our entertainer app. As a user, you own the decision to book entertainment with us or not. Yombu provides information to our customers prior to their events, such as: Pricing, the entertainers name, their profile and ratings from previous clients. If you decide to book entertainment with us you are accepting our terms of service and are taking responsibility for the successful payment of the event.

Resolving Your Request
The Yombu Guarantee
We offer a Yombu Guarantee to all of our clients. If you are unhappy with your event entertainment, we will refund you. However refunds over 20% are subject to an investigation by Yombu and a meeting with the entertainer involved.
When an entertainer receives a negative review we take the following actions:
2 - 3 Star review:

2) Immediately offer our clients a 20% refund on the party price.
1 Star review:
1) Temporarily deactivate the entertainers account while we investigate the event.
2) Meet with the entertainer to determine the reason behind the 1 star review.
3) Arrange a call with our clients to agree upon a fair refund amount.
*In cases where an entertainer disagrees with the refund amount requested by a client. We will ask both parties to attend a Zoom call mediated by Yombu's customer support to determine a fair refund amount that both parties are happy with. Where a resolution is not agreed upon in the meeting we reserve the right to make a final decision about the refund amount after considering both sides of the discussion.
