As and when offered to User, User may be able to maintain a Payments Account supplied by a Payments Provider that User will be able to load, maintain and debit as per its terms with the Payments Provider, such as they may be from time to time.
Together with or distinct from the Payments Account, Users may pay for a Transaction via ACH Debit and Debit card payable to a Payments Provider. ACH Deposits generally take 4 to 6 business days whereas debit cards are debited instantly. By using ACH/Cards you authorize our Payments Provider through us to debit the Payment Method provided by you for the noted amount on the date you authorize. You understand that because this is an electronic transaction, these funds may be withdrawn from your account as soon as the date you authorize. You will not dispute our Payments Provider debiting your checking/savings account, so long as the transaction corresponds to the terms indicated in your transaction. In addition, you agree on the following:
a. You agree to pay a Transaction Fee plus the Transaction amount for every transaction that you place in the Service platform. Additional charges may apply. Payment is due at the time your Transaction is submitted for processing. You agree to reimburse Payments Providers or us, as the case may be, all Fees if you submit a Transaction that results in the Payments Provider being charged non-sufficient fund fees, chargeback fees, or other similar Fees.
b. In order to collect payment from you, you authorize the Payments Provider to access, charge, or debit funds from any of the Payment Method you provide us in connection with your use of the Service. If your payment fails or is insufficient, we may re-try debiting your Payment Method one or more times without your authorization or you may authorize us to try debiting a different Payment Method. For example, if there are insufficient funds in your bank account at the time you submit your Transaction, the Payments Provider may try to debit your bank account at a later time. You are solely responsible for any fees or charges that may be imposed by the financial institutions associated with your mode of Payment.
c. You shall not be entitled to any benefit accrued to us and our Third-Party Servicers on account of any foreign exchange fluctuation during the course of the services provided by us or Third-Party Servicers. You agree, when you send a Transaction to a Recipient’s bank account, that the bank account is denominated in the currency as set during the time of your Transaction.
d. In case if you fail to make payment and your transaction is already delivered to Recipient, we have the right to take all possible actions to recover the payment, to the extent permitted by law. Your failure to fully pay amounts that you owe us is a material breach of this Agreement and you will be liable for our costs associated with recovery and collection in addition to the amount owed, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and expenses, costs of any arbitration or court proceeding, collection agency fees, and any applicable interest.
Machnet reserves the right, but does not have the obligation, to cause funds for a Transaction to be made available to a Recipient before the Payment Provider is in receipt of User Transaction funds. In such case Payments Provider and Machnet reserve the right to not characterize such Transactions as money transmission but, instead, reimbursement of an advance provided to a Recipient.
10.ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFER
The following disclosures are made in accordance with the federal law regarding electronic payments, deposits, transfers of funds and other electronic transfers to and from your account(s). There may be limitations on account activity that restrict your ability to make electronic fund transfers. Any such limits are disclosed in the appropriate agreements governing your account.
A. Definitions: Electronic Fund Transfer: Any transfer of funds, other than a transaction originated by check, draft or similar paper instrument, that is initiated through an electronic device or computer to instruct us to debit or credit an account. Electronic Fund Transfers include such electronic transactions as direct deposits or withdrawals of funds, transfers initiated via telephone, website or mobile application. Preauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer: An Electronic Fund Transfer that you have authorized in advance to recur at substantially regular intervals; for example, direct deposits into or withdrawal of funds out of your account.
B. Your Liability: Authorized Transfers: You are liable for all Electronic Fund Transfers that you authorize, whether directly or indirectly. Unauthorized Transfers: Tell us at once if you believe your account or PIN or Access Information (as defined below) is lost or stolen or has been or may be subject to unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfers. Support message us immediately to keep your possible losses to a minimum. You could lose all the money in your account(s). If you tell us within two (2) business days after learning of the loss or theft of your account access device, or after learning of any other unauthorized transfers from your account involving your account access device, you can lose no more than $50 if Electronic Fund Transfers are made without your permission. For these transactions, if you DO NOT tell us within two (2) business days after learning of the loss, theft or unauthorized use, and we can establish that we could have prevented the unauthorized transfer(s) if you had told us in time, you could lose as much as $500. Also, if your periodic account statement shows unauthorized transfers and you DO NOT tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was delivered to you, you may not get back any money you lose after the sixty (60) day period if we can prove that we could have prevented the unauthorized transfer(s) if you had told us in time. If an extenuating circumstance (such as extended travel or hospitalization) prevents you from promptly notifying us of a suspected lost or stolen access device or of any other suspected unauthorized transfer(s), the time periods specified in this Section B may be extended for a reasonable period.

15.REFUND OF REMITTANCE PAYMENT
a. Pursuant to Third-Party Servicer Terms with Payments Providers, you may cancel your Transaction for a full refund within 30 minutes of creating your Transaction, unless the funds have already been paid out to Recipient or your transaction has been picked up for processing.

To request a refund, please contact Machnet.
b. We will instruct the Payments Provider to make every effort not to debit your Payment Method after we have received your request for cancellation. However, in some cases, they may have initiated an irreversible request for funds from your financial institution prior to receiving your request for cancellation. In such cases, your Payment Method may be debited even if you have cancelled your Transaction but Payments Provider will refund your money usually within fourteen (14) business days, after we have received the funds from your financial institution. This shall apply only if your transaction has not been delivered to your Recipient.
c. Refunds will be credited to the same Payment Method used to pay for the Transaction. Refunds are only made in U.S. Dollars. Refund amounts will not be adjusted to account for changes in the value of the U.S. Dollar or foreign currency from the time your Transaction was submitted.

e. If Machnet determines to refund remittance payment funds to you, these funds may be returned to you by the Payments Provider at the exchange rates established by Machnet on the date of return.
