This Agreement is entered into between you (the "Merchant", "you", "your") and AGENT CASH LTD, ("AgentCASH", "we", "us", "our") and it sets out the terms and conditions for the provision of services as defined below. The Agreement also sets out the acquiring bank's rights as required under the card scheme rules. You need to enter into a separate agreement with the acquiring bank (an "Acquirer Agreement") in order to accept payment cards. If any Acquirer Agreement is in conflict with this Agreement, the Acquirer Agreement shall prevail to the extent necessary to resolve the conflict.
AGENT CASH LTD is a private limited company registered in England and Wales under company registration number 09283111, with its registered seat at 20-22 Wenlock Road, London, N1 7GU, United Kingdom.
In accordance with the terms of this Agreement, AgentCASH provides technical services, a card reader (the "Card Reader") and a license to use the mobile software application ("Software"), which enables the acceptance and processing of payments using the payment methods and payment cards listed on our website (the "Payment Cards"). The Card Reader processes the data stored on Payment Cards (the "Card Data"). The Software generates the data required for initiating the transaction (the "Transaction Data") and then forwards the Transaction Data to the acquiring bank for processing (as defined below). The acquiring bank uses the Transaction Data in order to initiate the payment transaction and transfer the appropriate amount to your bank account.
The provision of the technical services, the Card Reader and the Software are referred to as the “Services”.
The acquiring bank will deduct a fee for the payment service from the amount paid, as indicated on our website. The Acquirer may, in its sole discretion, arrange different fee rates for each individual merchant on the basis of the financial and operational risks of doing business with the Merchant and the volume of transactions.
We reserve the right to appoint a third party in order to fulfill some or all of our obligations under this Agreement.
We reserve the right to amend the list of accepted payment methods and supported Payment Cards at any time.
The Services may be used only in the territories agreed between us (the “Service Territory”). It is strictly forbidden to use the Services in the areas for which you have not obtained our permission.
You must install the Card Reader and the Software according to the instructions available on our website.
We will enable you to acquire the appropriate Card Reader at a purchase price published on our website. In the event that we allow you to purchase the Card Reader at a reduced price or that we give you the reader for free, we reserve the right to condition your ownership of the Card Reader on achieving a minimum volume of card transactions.
You are not allowed to sell, rent, license or transfer the Card Reader to a third party or allow the use of the Card Reader by a third party. You are also not allowed to modify the software or the hardware of the Card Reader in any way. You must not use the Card Reader for any purpose other than effecting payment transactions through the AgentCASH mobile application.
At our request, you must return the Card Reader to us, either upon termination or expiry of this Agreement or to replace an existing Card Reader. If you terminate the Agreement, you must return the Card Reader to us at your own expense and transfer the ownership of the Card Reader back to us.
We will refund the purchase price of the Card Reader if we are required to do so by law or if we agreed to a refund. We may charge a fee for processing returns of Card Readers. If the Card Reader is returned in used condition, we may refuse to refund the purchase price.
You are not allowed to copy the Software for purposes other than the use of our Services. You are also not allowed to alter, amend or reverse engineer the Software. If we publish an updated version of the Software, you are required to install the update and discontinue the use of the old version. You may only use the Software in your Service Territory.
AgentCASH is not a bank and does not offer banking services. In order to provide you with the Services, we have entered into an agreement with the acquiring bank (the "Acquirer"). Under this Agreement we will transmit the Transaction Data through our Software, in accordance with the authorization request, to the Acquirer in order to initiate a payment transaction.
You agree with the forwarding of the Transaction Data, along with any other relevant account information, to the Acquirer in order to initiate and process a payment transaction.
We reserve the right to change the Acquirer at any time. You agree that at any time we may forward any relevant information about you to the new Acquirer in order to ensure the continuity of payment services.
In order to use the AgentCASH Services you must register for the Services and set up an AgentCASH account. The registration process is available via the AgentCASH website or via the AgentCASH mobile application.
During the registration process, you will be asked to provide certain information, including but not limited to your name, address, email address, telephone number, bank account number and, if necessary, company name and legal form of organization, trade name, type of business, full business address and ownership information.
In addition to the information required during the registration process, we reserve the right to request additional information, if deemed necessary by us or the Acquirer, in order to provide Services, comply with legal and regulatory requirements or assess the operational and financial risks of using our Services. If you do not provide such additional information, we have the right to suspend or cancel your AgentCASH account.
You agree that the information you provide during the registration process or otherwise is accurate, complete and up to date, and that you will immediately notify us of any changes in any information provided by you to us during the registration process or at any other time during the term of this Agreement. If any information becomes inaccurate or incomplete, the Services may be temporarily or permanently suspended.
Upon registration you will be given a personal user account and password that you will need in order to process payment transactions. It is your responsibility to ensure that this information and other login information are stored safely. You agree to keep the account access information solely at your own risk and in such a way that they remain inaccessible to unauthorized persons. Account details are personal and may not be transferred to anyone other than you.
Upon the completion of the registration process, we or the Acquirer will verify your identity in accordance with applicable anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism laws.
The decision on whether your identity has been properly verified will be made entirely at the discretion of AgentCASH and the Acquirer. Until you have successfully completed the registration and verification process, we reserve the right to suspend or not to start providing any Service under this Agreement.
Once your information has been verified, we will assign a category to you according to your business activity. This classification can be used to determine certain limits, such as the maximum transaction amount and the frequency of transactions that may be considered typical for that type of business or activity. Should there be any significant change in your business activity, you must immediately inform us thereof in order for us to adjust the existing limits to the new activity.
You must only use the Services to accept payment cards in accordance with applicable laws, regulations and card scheme rules. We may occasionally be required by the card schemes or the Acquirer to change this Agreement in connection with amendments to the card scheme rules.
You may only use our Services for the sale of products and services associated with your business activity. You must obtain our prior approval for any products or services that fall outside of the typical product or service range of your merchant category. If you are in doubt whether your goods or services are typical for your business category, please contact our Customer Service.
You must not use the Services with the intent of fraud or in a manner that is misleading to your customers, cardholders or any third party.
Card scheme brands and logos may be used only in accordance with the card scheme rules.

We do not guarantee that the Services will be compatible with your mobile device.
You must take all reasonable precautions to keep your Card Reader, application and mobile device secure and to avoid loss, theft, misappropriation or unauthorized use of your mobile device, Card Reader, account login details or security settings (including your user name, password and other security information).
You must at all times follow the instructions we gave you in relation to the security of any Card Data or Transaction Data, customer data and the integrity of the Card Reader and the Software. We may communicate such instructions to you through any agreed communication channel.
If your Card Reader or any security detail relating to your AgentCASH account is lost or stolen, or if you suspect that an unauthorized person has used or tried to use them, you must inform us thereof without delay by contacting our Customer Service.
If an unauthorized person has used your security details to access your AgentCASH account and we have not received any notification from you as described above, in the absence of any indication that your account may have been accessed without your authorization, we will continue to process every payment transaction initiated through your account.
When using the Services for transactions and provided that the Payment Card supports PINs, you must first ensure that the PIN is entered for verification purposes. When using the Services for transactions requiring a signature (Chip&Sign or Swipe&Sign), you must take all reasonable actions to make sure that the Payment Card used for payment was issued to the person presenting such card to you, for example by comparing the signature on the card to that made in your presence by the person presenting the card. In the event that the two signatures are not sufficiently similar for you to be sure that they were made by the same person, you do not have to accept that Payment Card unless the person presenting the card provides some other proof that he/she is the card holder.
You must at all times take all necessary measures to prevent a fraud or any illegal use of your AgentCASH account, the Card Reader or the Software. We are obliged to report any fraud or suspicion of illegal activity to the competent authorities.
If you have any reasonable suspicion that a card presented to you for payment is stolen, forged or being used in any illegal manner, you must note down the relevant card details and contact us immediately.
When accepting card transactions requiring a signature (Chip&Sign or Swipe&Sign), you must ensure that the card holder accepts the payment transaction and signs the electronic receipt with his/her name at the specified place in the Software.
We may at any time restrict the number or the value (or both) of the card transactions that require signature authorization.
When processing a transaction, you must submit the full amount of the invoiced goods/services as one transaction. If the transaction is declined, you cannot split the transaction into several smaller transactions. Please note that the card issuer reserves the right to issue a chargeback if you split a transaction. Splitting transactions can result in your funds being withheld and your merchant account terminated by the Acquirer.
It is your responsibility at all times to adhere to applicable data security standards determined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI Council), whose requirements and measures ("PCI Standards”) can be found at www.pcisecuritystandards.org.
It is your obligation as a merchant accepting Payment Cards to determine which PCI Standards are applicable to you. Based on the information we hold on you, we may recommend that you take certain actions in order to become compliant with the relevant PCI Standard. However, the recommendations shall not constitute legal advice nor shall we be liable for the accuracy of any recommendations we give you.
You must notify us immediately of any interruption, defect or damage relating to the Card Reader, the Software or our Services.
You are obliged to fully cooperate with us at your own expense if your cooperation is required for the purposes of an audit imposed by the Acquirer or the card scheme, or to comply with an order or investigation of a competent authority, law enforcement agency or court.
Within the time limits determined by law and applicable card scheme rules, the transaction may be reversed through a process called chargeback (“Chargeback”) if such transaction:
If the Acquirer has received a Chargeback request in relation to a transaction, the Acquirer may deduct the amount of the Chargeback and any associated fees and fines from any outstanding amounts of other transactions or charge the costs in a different manner.
The Acquirer or AgentCASH will store signatures from digital receipts free of charge. You are not responsible for storing these documents.
If you operate a web shop, post material to the Service, post links on the Service, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of the Service (any such material, “Content”) or other services, You are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content.

User can agree to either a one (1) month or twelve (12) month contract agreement with AgentCASH User can opt to upgrade or downgrade their service agreement to any other contract agreement that AgentCASH is currently offering for sale at any time during User's contract term. Any plan downgrades will take effect when your next billing cycle begins. In the case of an upgrade, you will be charged for the difference in the cost of the two contracts over the remainder of the original contract term. At the end of the contract term, the contract will automatically renew indefinitely until explicitly cancelled. Cancellation must be issued via AgentCASH’s support addresses. Any cancellation must be done three (3) days prior to the end of the contract term to allow for adequate processing time.
If you cancel your services, your cancellation takes effect on your next billing cycle. This means we won’t be able to refund you for early contract cancellation. All AgentCASH accounts begin an obligation-free trial which will allow you to evaluate the service. No credit card information is collected to initiate a trial account, and charges will only be applied after explicit account purchase. Please sign up for a monthly payment schedule if you are unsure of how long you will be using the service. If you have a question about charges made to your account, please contact us immediately. If the charges were made in error, we will immediately credit your account or credit card account for the appropriate amount. AgentCASH has a zero tolerance policy for chargebacks. Any customer who disputes a credit card payment that is found to be valid will be permanently blacklisted and barred from use of the Service. Any past due fees and costs will be sent to collections. If our collection efforts fail, unpaid debts will be reported to all available credit reporting agencies. All cancellations must be requested a minimum of 48 hours prior to 00:00:01 CST (GMT+0) on your monthly billing date.
