WHAT WE DO

Paymentwall sells the Products and provides you with various local payment options to complete your purchase transaction.
REGISTERING YOUR ACCOUNT
If you choose to remain logged into your Account, Paymentwall will recognize you when you return to Paymentwall or visit other publishers who use Paymentwall. If you log out, clear the cookies in your web browser, or use a different device, you may also be able to log back into your Account using the email address and password you originally provided to setup your Account. As long as you are logged in, your personal information may be used when you make purchases from publishers who use Paymentwall’s digital e-commerce distribution platform.
You authorize Paymentwall, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate your identity. This may include asking you for further information such as requiring you to provide your date of birth, confirming your email address or funding instruments, verifying your information against third party databases or through other sources, and other information that will allow us to reasonably identify you.
BUYING FROM PAYMENTWALL
When you submit a purchase request, your request shall constitute an offer by you to purchase the Products at the price and terms stated at checkout, and is subject to our acceptance of the purchase request. Paymentwall shall only be deemed to accept your purchase request when it has coordinated the delivery of the Products to you and received your payment of the purchase price in the respective payment method you chose to submit the purchase request. All orders are final, non-cancelable, and non-refundable, except if specified in the refund policy for a specific purchase.
We describe the Products available for purchase as accurately as possible. However, we do not warrant that the prices and descriptions made or referred to on Paymentwall or any related websites are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. The descriptions do not constitute an offer and Paymentwall may withdraw them or revise them at any time prior to the time that Paymentwall accepts your purchase. The Product information is made available to Paymentwall by the Product manufacturer or publisher and are merely intended to represent a basic illustration of the Products. The information shall not be construed to constitute a warranty or representation that the Products will conform with the same. You must refer to the manufacturer’s warranty documentation to investigate any rights and remedies regarding any available Product warranties.
All purchases are subject to your consent to any applicable license agreement or usage terms that are delivered with, included in, or otherwise presented in connection with the Product you purchased. If you do not agree to the terms, do not accept them and do not complete the purchase. We may reject your order (without liability) if we are unable to process or fulfill it. We cannot guarantee that all items are in stock or immediately available when you submit your order. In such a case, we will refund any prior payment that you have made for that item.
We will use all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure delivery of Products in a timely manner. Except as expressly stated in this Agreement, the risk of loss or damage to the Products passes to you for the Products delivered digitally, upon the provision to you of a download link, via email or other electronic delivery method. If you refuse or fail to take delivery of Products, any risk of loss or damage to the Products shall nonetheless pass to you, and Paymentwall shall remain entitled to payment in full for the Products delivered. You agree that Paymentwall is not liable for any damages resulting from a participating publisher’s decision to not deliver the Products upon the completion of the order.
