Making a complaint

We want all of our users to have a fantastic experience when using GoSolo, so when we hear that we have not provided a service to that standard, we want to do all that we can to make things right.

We hope that most matters can be resolved through an email or video-chat conversations with one of the members of our team.

However, we appreciate that some matters sometimes require further escalation. That is what this section is for.

Should you find that you need to make a complaint, we can assure you that it will be addressed swiftly, fairly and efficiently, so that we can find a resolution as quickly as possible.

If you have a complaint, we ask that you do the following:

  • Write an email addressed to we@GoSolo.net
  • Enter the subject line: “I have a complaint” and add your company name (or the account that complaint relates to on the platform)
  • In the body of the email, please describe as much as possible the nature of the complaint, including when the issue happened and who you had been dealing with in our team

After you send your complaint email, you will receive an acknowledgement email from us within 7 business days. A senior member of our organisation will review the complaint and will respond within a few days. This initial response may offer a resolution or may begin a dialogue in an attempt to reach the best possible outcome.

We will try to resolve any complaints you have about your payment instrument or the service we provide to you within 15 business days of receiving your complaint and in exceptional circumstances, within 35 business days (and we will let you know if this is the case)

If we were unable to resolve your issue or our suggested resolution does not satisfy you, you can refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. For more details you can visit their website at www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk.

We can make changes to it for any reason. If we make changes to it then we'll tell you once we've made them.

If you don't agree to these changes, you can let us know and we'll close your account. We'll transfer any money in the account to another account of yours, and you'll need to pay back any money you owe us.
