Subject to Section 9, and provided none of the foregoing exceptions are applicable, if we cause an incorrect amount of funds to be removed from your Account or cause funds from your Account to be directed in a manner inconsistent with your instructions, you agree that your sole remedy shall be to have the wrongly deducted sum returned to your Account.


2.5 Payment  Processing  Services:  You may make payment to a third party, such as third party merchants (“3P Merchants”) through our Facility. By using our Services, you agree that we may use all information, including personal and billing information, provided by you to us in the course of using the Services (“Payment Instructions”). You acknowledge and agree that it is your sole responsibility to ensure that all your Payment Instructions are correct, complete and accurate in every respect and you understand that time is required to process your Payment Instructions. The Payment Instructions provided by you will be treated as final and we will not be required to verify the Payment Instructions with you. Further, by providing us with your Payment Instructions, you agree to pay or allow us to deduct from your Account all fees and charges (if any) associated with your Payment Instructions.


We are solely a payment agent and we do not hold any stock in our inventory. All feedback and complaints about your purchases should be directed to the relevant 3P Merchant. Your Payment Instructions may be made out through your Account balance.  You may use funds from your designated Account to make payments or purchases. 

2.6 Refunds:  Your Account may be used to receive refunds from a cancelled Transaction. The terms of such refunds shall continue to be subject to the terms of service applicable to the Transaction between you and the 3P Merchants.

Subject to Section 1.9, and provided none of the foregoing exceptions are applicable, if we cause an incorrect amount of funds to be removed from your Account or cause funds from your Account to be directed in a manner that does not comply with your instructions, you agree that your sole remedy shall be to have the wrongly deducted sum returned to your Account.  You agree and acknowledge to release and indemnify us against any damages, losses and claims from the third party in relation with the foregoing.

In the event where a Transaction is terminated, we may, at our sole discretion, determine whether it is reasonable to refund part of or all the funds to the User.  We may limit any or all of the Services available to any User, in accordance with this Terms of Service. No warranty or representation is given that the same type and extent of transactions, benefits, features and functions will be available to all Users.  We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any Transaction for any reason at our sole discretion. Situations that may result in a Transaction being rejected or cancelled, include, but are not limited to problems which have been identified by our credit and fraud control department, where we have reason to believe that the Transaction is unauthorised, violates any law, rule, or regulation, or may otherwise subject us or any of our affiliates to liability. We may also require additional verifications or information of any Transaction.  We may impose additional restrictions, limitations, prohibitions or any other measures that we, in our sole discretion, deem necessary or reasonable in each Transaction.

9. ERRORS AND UNAUTHORISED TRANSACTIONS

9.1 When an unauthorised Transaction or an error occurs in your Account, we will cover you for the full amount of every eligible unauthorised Transaction or error as long as you follow the procedures set out below. An unauthorised Transaction occurs when a payment is sent from your Account that you did not authorise and did not benefit you i.e. if someone steals your password, uses the password to access your Account, and sends a payment from your Account, an unauthorised Transaction has occurred. If you give someone access to your Account (by giving them your login information) and they conduct transactions without your knowledge or permission, you are responsible for any resulting use.

9.2 You should immediately notify us if you believe:
there has been an unauthorised Transaction or unauthorised access to your Account;
there is an error in your Account history;
your password or unlock code has been compromised;
your Account mobile-activated phone has been lost, stolen or deactivated; or
you need more information about a transaction listed on the transaction history or transaction confirmation.

9.3 To be eligible for protection for unauthorised Transactions, you must notify us within twenty four (24) hours upon notice of such unauthorised Transactions, but no later than thirty (30) days after any unauthorised Transaction first appears in your Account history. We will extend the time period with reasonable and demonstrable reason, such as a hospital stay, which kept you from notifying us within the time limit. You should regularly log into your Account and review your Account history to ensure that there has not been an unauthorised Transaction or error. We may also send an email to the primary email address you have provided in order to notify you of each transaction from your Account. You should also review these transaction confirmations to ensure that each transaction was authorised and is accurate.

9.4 For unauthorised Transactions or Errors in your Account, notify us through the methods set out in these Terms of Service.  When you notify us, you must provide us with all of the following information:

Your name, contact number and email address registered to your Account;
A description of any suspected unauthorised Transaction or error and an explanation as to why you believe it is incorrect or why you need more information to identify the Transaction; and
The amount of any suspected unauthorised Transaction or error.

If you notify us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) Business Days. During the course of our investigation, we may request additional information from you.

9.5 Once you notify us of any suspected unauthorised Transaction or error, or we otherwise learn of one, we will do the following:

We will conduct an investigation to determine whether there has been an unauthorised Transaction or error that is eligible for protection.
We will complete our investigation within ten (10) Business Days from the date we received your notification of the suspected unauthorised Transactions or error. If your Account is new (the first transaction from your Account was less than thirty (30) business days from the date you notify us), we may take up to twenty (20) business days to complete this investigation. If we need more time, we may take up to forty five (45) days to complete our investigation (or up to ninety (90) days for new Accounts, or if your transaction was at a point of sale where you were physically present).
If we decide that we need more time to complete our investigation, we may, at our sole discretion, provisionally credit your Account for the amount of the suspected unauthorised Transaction or error.
We will inform you of our decision after completing our investigation. 


9.6 If we determine that there was an unauthorised Transaction or error, we will promptly credit the full amount into your Account within one (1) business day of our determination. Or, if you have already received a provisional credit, you will be allowed to retain those amounts. If we decide that there was not an unauthorised Transaction or error, we will include an explanation of our decision in our email to you. If you received a provisional credit, we will remove it from your Account and notify you of the date and amount of the debit. You may request copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

9.7 We will rectify any error that we discover. If the error results in your receipt of less than the correct amount to which you are entitled, we will credit your Account for the difference. If the error results in your receipt of more than the correct amount to which you are entitled, you agree that we may debit the extra funds from your Account.

9.8 If you erroneously send a payment to the wrong party, or send a payment for the wrong amount (based on a typographical error, for example), your only recourse will be to contact the party to whom you sent the payment and ask them to refund the payment. We will not reimburse you or reverse a payment that you have made in error.
