Follow-up request fees
There are no additional fees for this service, unless follow-up requests take an excessive amount of time to process.
Fees for follow-up requests
For a first or second follow-up request, no fee is charged to answer brief queries and to check minor changes.
For a third or subsequent follow-up request, a time fee of $31.50 is charged for each quarter hour required by the editing team to answer your queries and to check your changes, except for the first quarter hour, which is free of charge.
However, if any follow-up request includes more than 300 words of new text added to the OLE-edited version of your document, then a standard editing fee is charged to check the new text.
In addition, if any follow-up requests are received more than six months after the return of the OLE-edited version of your document, then a document processing fee of $30 is charged once to cover additional administrative costs.
Please note that our follow-up service is provided to answer brief queries and to check minor changes. If you make substantial changes to your document, then we re-edit the entire document. This ensures that the whole document remains consistent and enables us to maintain our quality guarantee. However, a re-editing discount may apply, depending on the extent of the changes.
How to avoid extra fees
1. Send only the final draft of your document to OLE for editing. Clients who send early or unfinished drafts of their documents will need to make more follow-up requests and may need to pay additional fees.
2. Send all your queries in a single follow-up request. If you send many follow-up requests, you may need to pay additional fees. We have a limit of six follow-up requests per order.
3. Send all your queries within six months.
