Payments

Bookings are subject to payment unless the specific Artist must confirm the booking first before the payment can be made in full, in part or as a deposit when you purchase or make a booking. Payments are safely processed from your credit/debit card by the third-party payment processor, e.g., Stripe, Apple Pay, Klarna, etc., made available on the ChicChic Platform (ChicChic does not act nor operates as the merchant of record).

Depending on the payment terms set by the Artists and upon payment, ChicChic will charge either full amount to be paid by you to the Artist or a deposit on your credit/debit card through a third-party payment processor made available on the Platform. In case of partial amount paid, any outstanding amount must be paid to the Artist on the day of the appointment and prior to the commencement of the appointment.

Please note, some Artists require payment when making the reservation, either in full, in part, or as a deposit. If this is the case, relevant details of the booking will be provided in the booking flow.

The terms of your payment will be based on your payment method chosen and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen payment method. You will receive a receipt either by email, notification or in the Wallet section of your account on the ChicChic Platform, issues by ChicChic on behalf of the Artist.

Any payment facilitated by us, for and on behalf of, transferred to the Artist is final and cannot be reclaimed unless otherwise explicitly stated.

We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order at any time for certain reasons including but not limited to availability, erroneous information, or if fraud or unauthorized, illegal transaction is suspected.

Objections to payments should be directed to your bank or payment provider, who can provide further information on your rights as well as applicable time limits. Further, please inform ChicChic of any objections by contacting hello@chicchicapp.com. ChicChic are not liable for any misuse or unauthorised payments.

Non-refundable Payments

For certain (non-refundable) rates or special offers, please note that the Artists may require that payment is made upfront through our 3rd party payment provider including wire transfer (if available), by debit/credit card or other payment method, and therefore your debit/credit card may be pre-authorised or charged (sometimes without any option for refund) upon making the booking.
