At Psychics.com our goal is to provide someone to turn to when callers need it most. We want every conversation with an advisor to be insightful, and if it isn’t, we offer a guarantee to make it right in the future.
To offer this guarantee, we carefully select some Advisors to be verified and to be featured on our site and newsletters. To earn a verified checkbox, you must meet and retain certain factors in your profile. Below are some of the requirements, but this is not a complete list of factors considered and the verified checkbox on an advisor profile can be added or removed at Psychics.com discretion.
1. Advisor must have received more than 10-star ratings on their account and obtained an average star rating over 4.0.
2. Advisor must not have missed more than 5% of their incoming calls. To avoid missing incoming calls, be sure to only turn on your phone call availability while you are able to pick up and accept an incoming call sent from Psychics.com
3. Advisor must not have received any complaints from callers to the Psychics.com Customer Service team requesting a refund for an unsatisfactory reading.
Advisors not meeting the above requirements are at risk of losing their verified check on their profiles. Repeated complaints, refund requests, or a missed call rate over 10% can prohibit an advisor from retaining their profiles on Psychics.com completely.
