Unless otherwise negotiated, cancellation fees typically occur if you cancel appointments within 24 hours of the start of the job. In your account, you can easily request to waive cancellation fees. Most pros do allow waivers in some circumstances, and we help make it easy. Just go to the "Billing History," then look for the fee itself. You should see an option to "Waive Fee," which you can tap to check eligibility. The pro will get notified that you took advantage of their offer, and you will instantly get credit to your account.
