What is Compassionate Pricing?
Compassionate Pricing is the process of intentionally setting a commercial retail price below market rates so that the product is available to any socioeconomic group. We developed the phrase “Compassionate Pricing” to summarize our ideology.
PayDestiny believes every person with the desire, passion, work ethic, and persistence to achieve their goals should have the same access to tools to do so.
PayDestiny is opposed to the creation of manufactured financial barriers. An example of a manufactured financial barrier is charging underrecognized and underpaid individuals hundreds to thousands of dollars for limited scope career coaching.
Excessive prices create an unlevel playing field where one must be financially privileged to access meaningful tools to get a promotion and pay raise.
We put people before profit and work to level the playing field by intentionally setting Compassionate Pricing.
Do you offer refunds?
PayDestiny does not offer refunds for the following four reasons:
1.) Instant value
Once you access our Premium features you instantly receive value by interacting with personally developed, researched, and/or developed promotion, compensation, and pay raise tools.
Requesting a refund for PayDestiny’s solutions would be like getting a free sample of your meal, liking it, ordering the entire meal, then attempting to return a portion of the uneaten food for a refund because you “didn’t like” the meal.
2.) Our Achievement Bank is Free
To ensure every person has access to meaningful tools to get a promotion and increase their pay we choose not charge for everything we offer. Our Achievement Bank is free. This helps to level the playing field and ensures we do not contribute to the creation of financial barriers that hinder career advancement and pay growth for the people who are most underpaid and overlooked.
3.) We are compassionately priced and put people before profit
We are intentionally compassionately priced. Compassionate pricing is the process of purposely setting a product’s price below market rates. We choose to be below the market rate because we are opposed to the creation of financial barriers that block people from accessing tools that level the playing field and help them level up. Every person with the desire, passion, work ethic, and persistence to achieve their goals should have the same access to tools to do so. We put people before profit and are intentionally compassionately priced.
4.) We giveback
We reinvest two percent of every purchase to create PayDestiny scholarships. Our subscription scholarships are provided to individuals that were formerly incarcerated, currently incarcerated and preparing for re-entry, that are developmentally delayed or have a disability, housing insecure, and/ or identify as an under resourced Latino/ Latina/ Latinx or Indigenous-American.
If you do not support compassionate pricing, agree to PayDestiny’s Terms of Service, and agree to our no refund policy (detailed in our Terms of Service) please do not purchase a subscription. No refund will be provided. Any dispute that may arise will be handled in accordance to our Terms of Service.
