FAQ's 🛎️

When do credits get deducted?
Credits are deducted only once a successful reference check has been done. If a reference check is not successful, no credits will be deducted.

Do unused credits carry-over to the next month?
No, unfortunately not.

How many references should be used on 1 candidate?
We suggest doing 3 reference checks on 1 candidate.

What is the turnaround time?
We aim for 3 working days, however if no contact can be made within 5 days or 3 attempts, we will classify them as a “dead” reference.

Who is this for?
Business owners and managers who don’t have time to do manual reference checks on potential candidates. QuickRef is also great for recruiters who’d rather spend their time finding great talent instead of following up on references.

What happens when my credits run out?
You will be notified when your credits run out. However, should you wish to use more credits, you can continue adding candidates and references - the account will automatically be invoiced at the rate of your current package.

Can more than one recruiter in a company use the same account?
Yes, you can add multiple users to the account, however they can only view their own candidates’ details.

How long is the contract?
We don’t bind customers into long term contracts. Should you wish to cancel, all we ask for is 30 days’ notice ;)
