    you got the required help? If yes, then your owlbucks are not wasted, they were used to get help. Doesn't matter if a QH helped you or not.

There has to be a way to have the option for a refund... like if you're not satisfied with the help you've received, file a complaint within 24 hours and the owlbucks are sent back to you.

    Think you can be a Qualified Helper? Apply here. Qualified Help is offered for a limited subjects now - Mathematics and Chemistry. Detailed Instructions: Check if there are any Qualified Helpers online now. Type in your question. Click on the blue Ask a Qualified Helper button You’ll be taken to a dialog box where you will be asked to buy OwlBucks. OwlBucks are OpenStudy’s currency. Click on to the PayPal page. If you have a PayPal account, you know what to do. If you have a credit card or a debit card or even one of those prepaid cards, PayPal can take them all. So buy a pack of OwlBucks. You’ll need 10 OwlBucks to ask one question of a Qualified Helper. You can use OwlBucks for more Qualified Helper questions, to get a recommendation letter or even a volunteering certificate. We deduct the OwlBucks for one question. We send a message to all the Qualified Helpers who are there online in your subject. Qualified Helper will come to your question and help you. That’s it. Go to the orange button on top to rate them when you are done. We share your OwlBucks with them. Remember we can only promise to connect you to an expert. If your question is very complex, and the Qualified Helper is not able to help, send us a note and ask for a refund from complaints@openstudy.com

    So basically sometimes openstudy is where people are employed not for a single penny so that qualified helpers stand a chance of getting the 2 bucks every time people get help from their employees not paid at all

    Qualified helpers don't make real money. :p It is only "Openstudy money" aka owl bucks. Owl bucks are not equivalent to any kind of real currency.

    but it took real money to buy virtual currency which was the owlbucks 10 owlbucks = $2 1 owlbuck = .20 cents. Like I know it's not a lot right now, but when users continue to use QH and end up getting hit or miss services...they may eventually stop using this and there goes the money which is probably needed to keep OpenStudy servers running...besides ads.
