Paymentwall provides this report functionality at a cost per relevant end user transaction within the territory of 0.05 EUR, if You are incorporated in the European Union, or $0.05 USD, if You are incorporated in any other jurisdiction (“Tax Calculation Cost”). The reporting tool is provided for Your convenience and Paymentwall is not responsible for and shall not be involved in any tax preparation or remittance on behalf of You.

You shall be solely responsible for the timely payment of all applicable federal, state or local taxes, including any VAT, sales, use, excise or transfer taxes, and other taxes associated with payments to You under this Agreement, except for taxes assessed on Paymentwall’s net income and local taxes that are already paid by Paymentwall or by third party processors.

For select markets or payment options, the collection timeframe can be Net 45, Net 60, Net 90, or longer. The expected Total Net Revenue payout timeframes and amounts will be displayed to You in the Paymentwall Admin Area and accessible with a username and password.
- The Payout Report provided in the Paymentwall Admin Area shall display the tentative amount of Total Net Revenue that will be paid out to You. The actual payout may fluctuate based on Rolling Reserve (as detailed in Section 3.(H.) below) currency exchange rates, uncollected amounts, risk adjustments, chargebacks, reversals and other third party fees.

By using the Paymentwall Services, You agree to the Paymentwall Services Terms and applicable Payment Terms.
- We may add or remove Paymentwall Services Providers or payment methods at any time. The Payment Service Terms and Payment Terms may also be amended from time to time. Your continuing use of the Paymentwall Services constitutes Your consent and agreement to such additions, removals and amendments.
- You authorise Paymentwall Services Providers to hold, receive, and disburse funds on Your behalf; and to instruct such Paymentwall Services Providers as to how and when funds are transferred to You. You also authorise us to designate which Paymentwall Services Providers may hold settlement funds, on deposit and in trust, pending transfer of funds to You in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. A clearing account through which funds are settled will be maintained by a Paymentwall Services Provider, and transfers to You from this account will be a full and final payment by the Paymentwall Services Provider to You.
- Credit Card Acceptance
- When accepting payment card payments, You must comply with all Network Rules applicable to merchants, including the Network Rules provided by Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. These Network Rules state that You may only accept payment using payment cards for bona fide legal commercial transactions, may only use payment network trademarks or service marks consistent with the Network Rules, and may not discriminate by card type or charge surcharges for acceptance of payment cards. The payment card networks may amend the Network Rules at any time without notice to You, and Paymentwall reserves the right to change the Paymentwall Services for payment card processing at any time to comply with the Network Rules. We may share the information You provide to us that we use to identify the nature of the products or services with Services Providers, including assigning Your business activities to a particular payment network merchant category code (MCC). Customers typically raise payment card network Disputes (i.e. chargebacks) when a merchant fails to provide the product or service to the Customer, or where the payment card account holder did not authorise the Charge. High chargeback rates (typically those exceeding 1%) may result in Your inability to use the Paymentwall Services.
- When You accept payment card Transactions, Network Rules specifically prohibit You from (I) providing cash refunds for a Charge on a credit card, unless required by Laws, (II) accepting cash, its equivalent, or any other item of value for a Refund, (III) acting as a payment intermediary or aggregator, or otherwise reselling Paymentwall Services on behalf of others, (IV) submitting what You believe or know to be a fraudulent Charge, or (V) using Paymentwall Services in a manner that is an abuse of Services Providers’ networks or a violation of Network Rules. If You misuse the Paymentwall Services for payment card transactions or engage in activity the payment card networks identify as damaging to their brand, or if we are required to do so by Network Rules, we may submit information about You, Representatives, Principals, beneficial owners and other individuals associated with Your Paymentwall Account to the MATCH terminated merchant listing maintained by MasterCard and accessed and updated by Visa and American Express, or to the Consortium Merchant Negative File maintained by Discover. Addition to one of these lists may result in Your inability to accept payments from payment cards. You understand and consent to our sharing this information and to the listing itself, and You will fully reimburse us for any losses we incur from third-party claims, and You waive Your rights to bring any direct claims against us that result from such reporting.
- Paymentwall may issue refunds on Your behalf in its sole discretion in response to end-user inquiries or if Paymentwall determines that the payment is fraudulent, was submitted by a non-verified user, or if it is an otherwise illegal transaction. If Paymentwall fails to receive the appropriate confirmation from You or if an end user inquires about any transaction, Paymentwall will contact You for more information and/or to confirm whether the goods or services were actually delivered to the end user. All notifications will be sent to the email address that You provide to Paymentwall. If You do not adequately respond to Paymentwall within three (3) days of Paymentwall’s request, Paymentwall may issue a refund to the end user without further notice. For all refunds processed, You shall be responsible to reimburse Paymentwall for all Refund Costs as detailed in Section 3.(C.)(c.) of this Agreement.
- Rolling Reserve and other Risk Measures
- Paymentwall may implement a “Rolling Reserve” to mitigate the risk of fraud, chargebacks or any other applicable risks. The Rolling Reserve rate shall initially be set to 5% of the gross transaction amount. Paymentwall may change the amount of the Rolling Reserve depending on the transaction history and risks associated with Your account. You irrevocably authorize Paymentwall to deduct from the Rolling Reserve or any payout owed to You the amount necessary to cover Refund Costs, chargebacks, amounts for fraud, or other amounts due to: Paymentwall; any payment provider; MasterCard, VISA, other card networks, and related corporations (collectively, the “Corporations”); or penalties based on Your violation of any of the respective party’s terms of service. Paymentwall will pay out the remainder of the Rolling Reserve to You on a monthly basis beginning six (6) months after the month in which the revenues were processed.
- If Paymentwall, in its sole discretion, determines that the measures in Section 3.(H.)(a.) are insufficient to address the high level of risk with Your account, Paymentwall may take further reasonable actions it deems are necessary regarding Your account, including requesting additional collateral from You such as a letter of credit or personal guaranty.
- Fraud and Chargebacks
- Paymentwall will not be obligated to pay for any fraudulent actions generated by any person, bot, automated program, or similar device on Brick, PayAlto, Mobiamo, SpiderPipe Basic, SpiderPipe Advanced, MINT, Offerwall or any other Paymentwall product, where it is not expressly stated that the fraud is covered, in connection with any payment collected by Paymentwall, as reasonably determined by Paymentwall. You are solely liable to Paymentwall for the full amount of all chargebacks plus associated fees, fines, expenses or penalties (including those assessed by the Corporations or any payment provider). Paymentwall may recover these amounts by debiting Your Rolling Reserve account or setting off any amount owed to You. If Paymentwall determines in its reasonable discretion that a chargeback is likely for any transaction, Paymentwall may withhold the amount of a transaction until the expiration of the period during which the end user may dispute the transaction, the chargeback is processed, or Paymentwall determines that a chargeback will not occur. Additional restrictions, fees, penalties, or fines may apply if Paymentwall, the Corporations, or any payment provider determines that You are incurring excessive chargebacks. Excessive chargebacks may result in changes to the Rolling Reserve terms, Revenue Share, holds on payouts to You, suspension of the Paymentwall Services, or termination of this Agreement.
- You authorize Paymentwall to contest any chargebacks (or any subsequent appeals thereof) against third parties on behalf of You, if Paymentwall chooses to do so in its sole discretion. This provision applies so long as Paymentwall has an interest in the chargeback even if any of the following events occurs to You including but not limited to: the filing of or commencement of bankruptcy proceeding or insolvency whether voluntary or involuntary, the dissolution of its entity, or the liquidation of Your assets. You agree to cooperate and provide all information that Paymentwall requests from You for the purposes of investigating and/or contesting a chargeback. Paymentwall will send such requests to the email address that You provide to Paymentwall and You must provide a full response to the request within fourteen (14) days, unless another timeframe is specified in the request. If You do not meet these requirements, You shall nonetheless be responsible for all costs or losses that Paymentwall incurs as a result of Your failure to comply with this section, in addition to the chargeback amounts plus associated fees, fines, expenses or penalties (including those assessed by the Corporations or any payment provider). Paymentwall assumes no liability for the resolution of any chargeback case.
- You acknowledge and agree that notwithstanding the termination of this Agreement for any reason, Paymentwall shall remain entitled to contest and recover chargebacks from You (and, where if relevant, from any party who has provided Paymentwall with a guarantee or security relating to Your obligations under this Agreement) that occur in relation to transactions effected during the term of this Agreement.
SECTION 4: DATA PROTECTION, SECURITY COMPLIANCE & PRIVACY
- Security of Your Account Access
- You agree to: (I) Not allow anyone else to have or use Your password details and to comply with all reasonable instructions we may issue regarding account access and security.
