    Can I have a phone call instead of an online audio/ video call with the expert?

    Yes. We promise you dedicated time with the expert, in whichever way you feel comfortable.


    What if I have any specific queries before my consultation?

    You can reach us anytime by e-mailing us at support@timespade.com or calling us at +91-8017238582. We will resolve the same before the start of your consultation.


    What if I have a problem with my internet connection during the consultation?

    Our consultation sessions work great even with low-bandwidth connections. As long as you have an internet connection of 1 mbps or above, you needn't worry. If you lose internet connection during the session, the expert will wait for 10 minutes for you to join back, after which the consultation will end. If you have any unresolved queries with the expert, you can reach out to him via the follow-up sessions.


    Can I request a voice call as a follow-up?

    Our experts agree to a certain number of dedicated hour(s) for each subscription. Follow-ups are meant to be provided only by chat, if required by you. Hence, we cannot ask the expert to provide a voice call as a follow-up.


    What if I need more time with the expert?

    You can subscribe to another session with the expert on our platform.
