When can I pretend to a compensation fee?
When a mission is canceled or postponed for less than 24 hours before the appointment, you can request a compensation fee.
The compensation fee applied
- It does not surpass 1/3 of the full price of the mission
- It is increased to a maximum of € 50 (or US$50, it depends on the network) per expense
- It can only be applied a maximum of two compensations per mission
Thus, a refusal on the part of the advertiser if the photographer is already on-site is, for example, a valid case which makes it possible to obtain a cancellation fee.
How to request a compensation fee on the new platform?
