1. Parties to these Terms
- These Terms are a legally binding agreement between you (“you”, “your” or the “Customer”) and Acciopay Pte.

These Terms shall govern your use of the Acciopay Progressive Web App ("PWA"), including any subdomains thereof, and any other websites and smart device applications through which Acciopay makes its services available, and the services provided through PWA in the manner described in Clause 2.1.
2. Acciopay Services
2.1 We operate the above-mentioned PWA on which we offer you the option to make payment for goods and/or services that are listed on the PWA on a deferred basis (“Deferred Payment Structure”). The services performed by the PWA that facilitates the Deferred Payment Structure shall be referred to as the “Acciopay Services”.
2.2 For the avoidance of doubt, the Acciopay Services do not constitute a lending or credit facility offered by Acciopay to you, and Acciopay does not provide any credit to you.
2.3 Due to the nature of the internet, Acciopay cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the PWA. Acciopay may restrict the availability of the PWA or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the PWA. Acciopay may improve, enhance, and modify the PWA from time to time. Acciopay shall not be liable in any way to you for any interruption to the use of the Acciopay Service during such period of maintenance or system upgrades.

- In consideration for your use of your Account, you agree to:
126.96.36.199 provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself in a timely manner as requested by Acciopay from time to time and to promptly notify us of any changes. We will not be responsible for any losses or charges incurred in relation to your failure to do so;
188.8.131.52 be solely responsible for the safety and security of your Account. Where you believe that your Account has been compromised or that there has been a security breach, you shall notify us immediately, and in the event that you fail to do so, you shall be liable for further purchases made using your Account;
184.108.40.206 be fully responsible for any unauthorized access to your Account, and shall notify us immediately, failing which, you shall be liable for all purchases made using your Account;

The Buyer agrees to inform the Seller of any change in the personal particulars provided by the Buyer for the creation of the Account such as the address, phone number and any other details that the Buyer had provided to Seller within  days from the date of such change. This would ensure that the Buyer is able to continue to login to their account using the new number. The Seller shall not be liable to the Buyer for any claims, damages, losses, expenses costs or liabilities whatsoever for the failure of the Buyer to inform the Seller of the same including circumstances where an unauthorised user uses the Buyer’s old number to login to the account to access information of the buyer.
Verification and Other Checks.

You agree to be bound by any rules of such other third party and are responsible for all fees charged by the same.
- When you select the Deferred Payment Structure as a means of payment for our goods and/or services, you are deemed to make an order with that under the terms of the Deferred Payment Agreement, available at https://www.acciopay.io/salescontract (“Order”). Orders are subject to Acciopay’s approvals. We may, in our sole discretion, decline to facilitate the Deferred Payment Structure for an Order, or cancel an approved Order before our goods and/or services are delivered or supplied, for any reason including but not limited to your history of Orders or to prevent against fraud, legal, regulatory or non-payment risk.
- The use of the Deferred Payment Structure is available for all purchases of all goods/and or services on our PWA, however we may, at our sole discretion, set a small order fee if a certain prescribed minimum purchase is not reached.
- Upon the completion of an Order and Acciopay’s approval of the same, we will immediately assume rights under the relevant Deferred Payment Agreement.
- If your Order is approved, you will be notified via the PWA of the same. The PWA will also inform you of your payment schedule (“Payment Schedule”) showing the amount and due dates for each deferred payment (“Deferred Payment”). These details are also available for view in your account on the Platform. The Deferred Payment Agreement and Payment Schedule for each Order are both hereby incorporated into these Terms.
- You agree to pay, and accept sole liability for, the full amount of the Deferred Payments. You will need to pay your Deferred Payment on the due date(s) specified in your Payment Schedule.
- If you do not make the Deferred Payments as and when they fall due (including if the Payment Method is declined), or if such payments are not successfully processed on the relevant due date, you will be immediately suspended from making further purchases and orders, and you may be charged late payment charges; for more information, please see Clause 7 below.
- You may additionally be subject to fees or charges assessed by your card provider, payment provider, payment processor and/or any other financial institution providing the relevant Payment Method.
Errors and Refunds
- If you wish to return the goods that have been purchased using the Deferred Payment Structure and/or request for a waiver of outstanding Deferred Payments, or a refund, return, or replacement as may otherwise be accepted or permitted by law, such waiver, refund, return or replacement shall be subject to Acciopay’s internal policies in relation to the refunds, returns and replacements in accordance to https://www.acciopay.io/salescontract.
- Once the refund or waiver process has been completed, the amount that we have agreed to refund to you (“Refunded Amount”) will be returned to you, subject to Acciopay’s absolute discretion to vary the amount, manner and order to which the Refunded Amount shall be applied.
- While we will process refunds as soon as reasonably practicable, the timing to receive any refund will vary based on the Payment Method and any applicable payment system (e.g., third party online payment processor, Hitpay, eGiro, etc.) rules and practices.
