Service Fees may vary depending on event type, Ticket type and location. StubHub may in its sole and absolute discretion change its Service Fees at any time, including after you list your Tickets. Any applicable Service Fees including any taxes if applicable will be disclosed to you prior to listing or buying a Ticket. StubHub may charge and/or retain Service Fees if you do not fulfil your contractual obligations under this User Agreement.

7.1 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations and the terms of this User Agreement and the Seller Policies when listing, selling and delivering your Tickets.
7.2 When listing a Ticket you must set a price for which you are willing to sell your Ticket ("Sales Price"). You may modify (e.g. raise or lower the Sales Price) or delete your listing at any time until the Tickets have sold.
7.3 By listing a Ticket for sale, you are making a binding offer to sell that Ticket to a Buyer who purchases the Ticket at the Sales Price. When a Buyer accepts your offer by purchasing your Ticket through our Site, you are contractually bound to deliver that exact Ticket for Sales Price and within the required delivery timeframe. You are obligated to monitor your inventory and ensure all listings are accurate. Under no circumstances may Sellers cancel orders at one price and repost the same tickets for a higher price. Failure to fulfill your orders will lead to charges as stated in this User Agreement and Seller Policies.
7.4 StubHub does not guarantee that your tickets or related passes will sell or that your listing will appear on the Site within a certain time after it is posted or in a particular order on the event page or through search results. StubHub will not, for any reason, provide compensation for tickets that do not sell, even if it is due to Site unavailability from an outage or maintenance or listing delays.
You as a Seller are responsible for determining whether any taxes are due on your sale of a Ticket, and for collecting and remitting such taxes. Any applicable taxes must be included in the Sales Price of your Ticket. You agree to provide StubHub any tax identification number if necessary for StubHub to provide (without notice to You) information to the relevant tax authorities related to payments you receive from us and further authorise StubHub to release that information to the relevant tax authorities. The Service Fees include any applicable sales, use, excise, value added, service and other indirect taxes.
9. Buying Tickets
You are responsible for reading the complete listing before making a commitment to buy Tickets. When placing an order, you are entering into a binding contract with the Seller to purchase those Tickets. Additional terms communicated to you by the Seller may apply. Payment is remitted to StubHub and disbursed to the seller according to our Payment Services Agreement for Sellers or the User Agreement. All Sales are final. You cannot change or cancel any orders after the sale is complete.
10.1 Payments received from Buyers for Tickets purchased via the Site are processed by StubHub or StubHub Services (as applicable) on behalf of the Seller and credited to the Seller in accordance with the Seller Policies and Payment Services Agreement (as applicable). Without prejudice or limitation to the Payment Services Agreement, Seller appoints the relevant StubHub entity as its limited payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting funds from Buyers on behalf of Seller. Seller agrees that any payment made by Buyer to StubHub shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to Seller, and Seller will make the Tickets available to Buyer in the agreed-upon manner as if Seller had received the payment directly from Buyer. Except as otherwise specified in the FanProtect Guarantee, Seller understands that StubHub’s obligation to pay Seller is subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the associated payments from Buyer. Except as otherwise specified in the FanProtect Guarantee, StubHub guarantees payments to Seller only for such amounts that have been successfully received by StubHub from Buyer. In accepting appointment as the limited payment collection agent of seller, StubHub assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Seller.
10.2 Payments from Buyers are due and payable immediately. A Buyer can pay the full order amount which includes any applicable Service Fees and taxes using one of the accepted payment methods.
10.3 A Buyer’s obligation to pay for a Ticket is satisfied when StubHub or StubHub Services (as applicable) has received the Payment in full.
11. Event Cancellations, Postponement and Other Event Changes
11.1 Cancellation: If an event is cancelled and not rescheduled, we will remove the event and any listings related to the event from our Site and inform both Buyer and Seller about the cancellation with further instructions. If the Seller requires his Ticket(s) back to obtain a refund of the original purchase price from the promoter or organizer, he must contact Customer Service immediately after the cancellation. The Buyer is required to retain the Ticket(s) and upon request from StubHub to send them back to either the Seller or to StubHub (as instructed by StubHub). The Buyer will receive a full refund or credit for use on a future purchase, as determined in StubHub’s sole discretion (unless a refund is required by law) once he has sent back the Ticket(s) (if applicable) and the Seller will not be paid. If the Seller has already been paid, the payment for the sale may be recovered by charging the Seller's Payment Method or by setting off this amount against pending payments for other Tickets the Seller has sold or will sell in the future.
11.2 Postponement: If an event is postponed, StubHub will work with Buyers and Sellers on a case-by-case basis attempting to resolve any Ticket issues. Sellers are prohibited from reselling, invalidating or changing Tickets for postponed events. Refunds will not be issued for postponed events, unless they are ultimately cancelled as stated above.
11.3 Other event changes: StubHub is not responsible for partial performances, venue, line-up or time changes. No refunds will be issued in these instances.

1. Some Of The Things You're Not Allowed To List
Here's a list of ticket types or ticket items that you're not allowed to list for sale on StubHub.
2. Rules for Listing Tickets
Providing accurate and complete information about your tickets during the listing process is one of the keys to becoming a successful seller and is a requirement to list on the Site. If you do not follow all of the requirements in this section when listing your tickets, your listings may not appear on the Site, your sale may be cancelled, you may not get paid, you may incur fees (associated with us finding replacement tickets for, or refunding, the buyer and/or a fixed admin fee), or you may be subject to other consequences specified in these Seller Policies and Clause 19 of the User Agreement.
2.1 Accurately tell us when you'll be able to send the tickets to buyers (if your tickets aren't In Hand)
For tickets to events located in the US or CANADA (unless otherwise specifically noted)
It's OK to list tickets you own but don't have in your possession yet ('Not In Hand') as long as you're absolutely certain you will have them on the date you give us when listing the tickets (the 'In-Hand Date'). The In-Hand Date you select is the beginning of your shipping window to complete the sale. We'll show buyers a delivery estimate based on your In-Hand Date which sets their expectations of when they'll receive the tickets they purchased, so be accurate. If you're not sure when you will have the tickets in your possession, hold off on listing the tickets or select the latest date available on the calendar. If your tickets haven't sold and the In-Hand Date changes, you may change the In-Hand Date without incurring fees. If your tickets have sold and the In-Hand Date changes, you may incur additional fees.
For tickets to events located in the European Economic Area (and any countries besides the United States and Canada unless specifically noted)
It’s OK to list tickets you own but don't have in your possession yet ('Not In Hand') as long as you're absolutely certain you will have them within 3 days to the event (In Hand). The In Hand Date is the beginning of your shipping window to complete the sale to ensure buyers receive the tickets in time for the event. We'll show buyers a delivery estimate of one day prior to the event. If you're not sure when you will have the tickets in your possession, hold off on listing the tickets.
2.2 Select the right delivery method for your ticket type
Except for tickets sold through Last Minute Services (LMS), StubHub will show you the delivery methods available for the event during the listing process. Not all delivery methods are available for all events. The delivery method determines the last available date to send tickets that are Not In Hand and the date and time the listing will expire (i.e. no longer be visible to buyers). This allows you adequate time to get tickets to buyers before the event.
For some of our integrated partner teams and venues (such as most Major League Baseball teams in the US and some venues in the UK), you'll deliver your tickets by entering the barcodes printed on them. This type of delivery applies to all types of tickets and is not the same as electronic delivery of PDF files (see below).
For all other events, when you start listing your tickets on the 'Enter your ticket details' page, you'll select a delivery method based on the type of tickets you have - electronic tickets (e-tickets), paper printouts, or traditional 'hard' tickets (such as tickets printed on card stock). Once your tickets sell, you can't change the delivery method and you must deliver the tickets using the delivery method you selected.
Important: If you have 'hard' tickets, you must select the shipping option (such as UPS or the relevant third party carrier) or use Last Minute Services (LMS) where available. You must not select electronic delivery, as traditional 'hard' tickets cannot be delivered electronically. And you cannot scan, copy, or photograph them to convert them into PDF files.
For Instant Download and Last Minute Services (LMS) tickets in all locations
Instant Download: If you have e-tickets that are in your possession (In Hand), using Instant Download has the following benefits:
With Instant Download, you'll 'pre-deliver' your tickets when you list them for sale, instead of waiting to receive a buyer's order to deliver them. That way, within minutes of their sale the tickets are delivered to the buyer. If you choose to list your tickets using Instant Download (for US/Canada based events only), you have agreed to list them for sale exclusively on StubHub.
Last Minute Services (LMS): Remember, if you choose to list your tickets for sale using Last Minute Services (LMS), you have agreed to list them for sale exclusively on StubHub (for US/Canada based events only) and you must send your tickets to Last Minute Services (LMS) on or before the In-Hand Date (in the UK, you can also drop them off). This means that buyers can purchase tickets for many events right up until the start of the event and pick them up at a StubHub Last Minute Services (LMS) Centre near the venue. Keep in mind that Last Minute Services (LMS) is not available for all events or sellers.

2.3 Enter accurate ticket info
When you list your tickets on StubHub, you are responsible for providing full and accurate information about your tickets. Depending on the location of the event, this may include all or part of the following: the name of the event, date, section, row, seat and any other required ticket information. Where required, we may remove any listings, cancel any sales or take other actions if listings are vague, confusing, inaccurate or misleading about section, row and seat information.
2.4 Listing by zones
For some events, we divide sections of the venue into zones and allow you to list tickets by zone. In the case of zone listings, you aren’t required to know the exact seat locations for your tickets. But to list tickets by zone, you must be absolutely certain that you’ll be able to deliver tickets in that zone.
2.5 Select any required disclosures
You are responsible for noting any important required disclosures about your tickets, including:
2.6 Select accurate ticket features and comments
If you have an aisle seat ticket, have a parking pass to include with the tickets you're selling, or want to highlight any other details about your tickets, select the appropriate check box on the 'Enter your ticket details' page when you're listing your tickets. Be sure to list exactly what you will deliver to the buyer and select only comments that accurately describe your tickets.
Don't see a comment you're looking for?
Please keep in mind that the comments should be about specific ticket features and disclosures, not subjective comments like 'Best value' and 'Great view' of the stage
2.7 List valid tickets
Only list tickets that you know are valid. It's your responsibility to make sure the tickets you list for sale on StubHub are valid. If you deliver incorrect, misrepresented, invalid, fraudulent or counterfeit tickets for any sale or portion of a sale you , you may incur additional fees or you may be subject to other consequences as set out in these Seller Policies and Clause 19 of the User Agreement.
2.8 Comply with applicable law
When setting the sale price of your tickets, it is your responsibility to comply with all applicable laws, statutes, and regulations.
2.9 Manage your listings and sales closely
You are free to modify or delete your listing at any time before a sale is completed between you and buyer. But keep in mind that by listing a ticket for sale on StubHub, you are making a binding offer to sell that ticket to a buyer who purchases the ticket for the price you have specified. When a buyer accepts your offer by purchasing your ticket, you are contractually bound to supply that exact ticket for the specified price and within the required delivery timeframe.
If you choose to list your tickets on StubHub and on other sites and you end up selling your tickets somewhere else or no longer have them in your possession, delete them from StubHub immediately. If your ticket sells on StubHub although it has sold somewhere else and you are not able to complete the sale, you will be subject to the consequences described in Section 3.3.
If you upload electronic tickets for sale and then remove the listing, StubHub is not responsible if you are unable to use those tickets due to technical or other reasons.
2.10. No guarantee
StubHub does not guarantee that your tickets or related passes will sell or that your listing will appear on the Site within a certain time after it is posted or in a particular order on the event page or through search results. StubHub will not, for any reason, provide compensation for tickets that do not sell, even if it is due to Site unavailability from an outage or maintenance or listing delays.
3. Rules for Getting Tickets to Buyers
3.1 Completing your sales
When your tickets sell, your sale is not complete until the buyer receives the tickets from you. Completing a sale means following all of the steps to deliver the tickets you sold, on time and as promised in your listing.
As soon as your tickets sell, we'll send you an email with a deadline to complete your sale, i.e. the date by which the buyer must receive the tickets. The deadline to complete your sale is based on whether you told us your tickets were in your possession (“In Hand”) or not (“Not In hand”) - and if not, the date you identified as your In Hand Date.
3.2 Deliver your tickets on time and as promised
When sellers deliver tickets late, worried buyers contact us wondering why they haven't received their tickets yet, when they should be looking forward to going to their event. And when a buyer gets tickets that don't match the information in the listing, we may need to take various remedial actions for that buyer including finding replacement tickets, providing refunds, etc. So if any of the information in your listing doesn't exactly match the actual tickets you deliver to the buyer or if you don't complete your sale on time, we may cancel your sale, you may not get paid, you may incur additional fees or you may be subject to other consequences as set out in these Seller Policies and Clause 19 of the User Agreement. With electronic delivery, you will upload your ticket as a PDF file. To ship hard tickets, you need to use the correct shipping label and follow the directions in the confirmation email.
For tickets to events located in the US or CANADA (unless otherwise specifically noted)
The deadline for completing your sale depends on whether or not your tickets are In Hand and how you will deliver your tickets to the buyer. Refer to the table below to determine when you are required to ship (or send) your tickets. Your 'Sale Date' refers to the date you receive the sale notification email.
|In hand||Not in hand|
|UPS Delivery (for orders > 72 hours from event)||Sale Date + 1 business day||In-Hand Date + 1 business day|
|Electronic Delivery (for orders > 48 hours from event)||Sale Date + 1 calendar day||In-Hand Date + 1 calendar day|
Except for tickets sold through Last Minute Services (LMS), StubHub will show you the delivery methods available for the event during the listing process. Not all delivery methods are available for all events. The delivery method determines the last available date to list tickets that are Not In Hand and the date and time the listing will expire (i.e. no longer be visible to buyers). This allows you adequate time to get tickets to buyers before the event.
For tickets to events located in the European Economic Area (and any countries besides the United States and Canada unless specifically noted)
For tickets In Hand (whether “hard” tickets or e-tickets), you are required to send the ticket to the buyer within five (5) working days or if the event is less than two (2) weeks away within 24 hours after you have received an order confirmation email from StubHub using the shipping label provided by StubHub in accordance with the third party carrier terms.
For tickets Not In Hand (“hard” tickets only), you are required to send a sold ticket to the buyer as soon as you have received it from the promoter or organiser, at the latest one (1) week before the event. Tickets must be posted at a post office (or the approved drop-off location of the applicable third party carrier) by no later than the "Post by" date stated on the shipping label. If you do not post your tickets at such location or post them after the “Post by” date stated on the shipping label, the shipment could be lost, delayed or returned.
For tickets Not In Hand (e-tickets only), you must upload your e-tickets as soon as you receive them from the promoter or organiser, at the latest one (1) week before the event.
For Instant Download and Last Minute Services (LMS) tickets in all locations
Instant download: With Instant Download, you'll upload your tickets when you list them for sale, instead of waiting to receive a sale notification email to deliver them. That way, within minutes of their sale the tickets are delivered to the buyer. As with any other tickets, you can always edit or remove your listing before the tickets sell.
LMS: With Last Minute Services (LMS), you drop off or send your tickets to StubHub when you list them for sale. This means that buyers can purchase tickets for many events right up until the start of the event and pick them up at a StubHub Last Minute Services (LMS) Centre near the venue. Keep in mind that Last Minute Services (LMS) is not available for all events or sellers.

3.3 Reporting an issue and offering replacement tickets; Consequences for Dropped Sales and Invalid Tickets
We know things don't always go as planned. You need to report an issue right away if you:
For tickets to events located in the US or CANADA (unless otherwise specifically noted)
If you dropped your sale, StubHub will charge your payment method an amount equal to the greater of (i) 100% of the price of the ticket(s) sold or (ii) the full amount incurred by StubHub to remedy the dropped sale. In addition, you may be subject to other consequences as specified in the User Agreement at Clause 19, including account suspension.
If we receive a report that tickets you sold on StubHub were not valid for entry, we'll investigate to try to determine what caused the issue, and, if necessary, we'll reach out to you to request documentation.
In this situation, except in cases where the venue or organizer/primary ticketer is responsible for the invalid ticket (as determined by our investigation), StubHub will charge your payment method an amount equal to the greater of (i) 100% of the price of the ticket(s) sold or (ii) the full amount incurred by StubHub to remedy the issue for the buyer (the “Invalid Ticket Charge”).
If you fail to respond to this email and or to take any other actions required by StubHub to investigate the invalid ticket claim, you may be charged an amount equal to 20% of the cost of the original tickets, in addition to the Invalid Ticket Charge described in the paragraph above. A response constitutes an acknowledgment of our request and a bona fide effort to investigate the claim and obtain documentation. However, failing to respond, and not being able to provide documentation are not the same. We understand that every team and venue is different, and there may be cases where you cannot obtain documentation to assist in the investigation. In these cases, we'll work with you and use your history with us, specifically your invalid ticket claim rate, to determine the resolution. You can view your invalid ticket claim rate in the Seller Data Portal any time.
For tickets to events located in the European Economic Area (and any countries besides the United States and Canada unless specifically noted)
If you dropped a sale (as defined above) or do not deliver tickets at all or deliver incorrect, misrepresented or invalid tickets (i.e. tickets that are invalid for entry to the venue) or if you make any changes in respect of your ticket listing after your ticket has been sold (i.e. the order has been made by the buyer) resulting in StubHub incurring additional costs, StubHub reserves the right to charge you the following additional fees and other charges to cover StubHub’s costs for resolving the issue, including finding replacement Tickets or issuing a refund to the Buyer:
(a) StubHub may charge a replacement fee which consists of the price of a comparable or better replacement Ticket. The replacement fee can be higher than the original sales price of your Ticket.
(b) StubHub may also charge you for any additional delivery costs which arise out of resolving issues caused by orders that were not correctly fulfilled.
(c) If replacement Tickets cannot be found or cannot be made available in time for the event or if the buyer is otherwise entitled to a full or partial refund according to the terms of the FanProtect Guarantee, because you delivered incorrect, misrepresented or invalid Tickets, StubHub may charge you for the cost of the refund.
(d) In addition to the fees and charges above StubHub may charge an administrative fee for the costs incurred by StubHub when resolving issues caused by any order that is not correctly fulfilled, such administrative fee shall be calculated by reference to the location of the event to which your ticket relates, as follows: £25 (per issue) for events located in the United Kingdom or 25 Euros (per issue) for events located in the European Economic Area or any other country besides the US or Canada unless otherwise specifically noted.
Additional fees and other charges may be charged to your Payment Method or deducted from pending or future payments received from buyers.
In addition, if you are unable to deliver the ticket at the latest one (1) week before the event, we reserve the right to cancel the sale and you will not be paid for the sale. If you were already paid, the payment for your sale may be recovered by charging your Payment Method or by setting off this amount against pending payments for other tickets you've sold or will sell in the future. In addition you may be subject to being charged additional fees or other consequences under the User Agreement at Clause 19.
If we receive a report that tickets you sold on StubHub were not valid for entry, we'll investigate to try to determine what caused the issue, and, if necessary, we'll reach out to you to request documentation.
4. How We Handle Cancelled Events, Play-off Games and Postponed Events
4.1 Cancelled events and play-off games
If you sold tickets to a cancelled event or a play-off game or contingency game that's not played, we'll email you to let you know and you won't be paid for the sale. If you were already paid, we'll recover the payment by charging your Payment Method on file with us or cancelling pending payments (for other tickets you've sold). If you prevent us from recovering a payment, we may suspend your selling permissions or withhold future payments until the amount owed is recovered.
If you need your tickets shipped back to you in order to get a refund of your original purchase, please contact us by replying to the cancellation email within two weeks of the event cancellation.
4.2 Postponed events policy
A 'postponed event' is an event where the time or date has changed because it was rescheduled by the team, venue, artist or organiser. We evaluate postponed events on a case-by-case basis to determine the appropriate course of action. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
5. Getting Paid, Paying Taxes and Tips on Avoiding Consequences
5.1 Getting paid for your ticket sale
Top Sellers will receive their payment as set forth in the Top Seller Handbook (as communicated by StubHub from time to time).
For tickets to events located in the US or CANADA (unless otherwise specifically noted)
If the event is located in the US or Canada, other sellers will usually be sent payments within five (5) business days (sometimes longer) following StubHub's confirmation of the buyer's receipt of tickets or related passes. In some cases, like for contingent events (meaning events that may not happen, including certain play-off games that only occur if a team wins) or other cases as determined in StubHub’s reasonable discretion, sellers will be sent payment within five business days (sometimes longer) of the event itself.
Payment receipt times will vary depending on the payment method chosen by the seller. We'll also send you an email to let you know the buyer received the tickets and we have begun processing your payment.
Payments from buyers are processed by StubHub Services on behalf of sellers. When your tickets sell, your payment will be released within 5 to 8 business days after the event takes place. Please read the Payment Services Agreement for Sellers on the relevant StubHub Site for more details. If you haven't received your payment 8 business days after the event takes place, please contact us.
5.2 Paying taxes
StubHub is not responsible in any way for the accuracy or suitability of any payment of any applicable taxes on your behalf. We do not collect taxes on any sales. As a seller, you are responsible for collecting and remitting any and all applicable international, federal, state, or municipal taxes in connection with ticket sales (including, but not limited to VAT in the UK, TVA in France or MwSt. in Germany).
As of January 2011, we are required by the IRS to collect a Tax ID Number (TIN) for sellers who sell tickets to events located in the US with more than 200 transactions and $20,000 USD paid to them by StubHub per year so we can create an annual 1099k form. If you're one of these sellers, we'll send you an email with instructions on how to add your TIN in My Account.
6. Other Things You're Not Allowed To Do
6.1 Misusing buyer contact information or StubHub's Site and services
We provide you with the buyer’s contact information so you can ship tickets to them. However, don't use this information to contact the buyer for anything other than delivering the tickets you sold to the buyer and do not tell a buyer that you are affiliated with or a representative of StubHub.
You are not allowed to use the StubHub Site or services to:
6.2 Don't place additional items in the envelope (like your contact information, promotional materials for your business etc.)
It may be tempting and seem harmless to include materials in the UPS (or other third party carrier, as relevant) envelope when you ship tickets to buyers - but it's against these Seller Policies. Here are examples of promotional or commercial information that you aren't allowed to include in shipments:
7. What Happens When You Break The Rules
When you violate these Seller Policies, you may face consequences, which could include the following (or any combination):
Remember, it's your responsibility to consult StubHub's User Agreement and all StubHub policies (including these Seller Policies) for all of the detail.
8. Country-Specific Additional Provisions
For events listed on the stubhub.co.uk Site only:
In addition to the tickets listed in Section 1 above (Some of the things you’re not allowed to list), the following types of tickets are not allowed to be listed for sale:
For events in the European Economic Area:

(c) A reversal or chargeback based on a claim within the framework of a buyer protection or similar programme offered by the Buyer's payment service provider.
5.3 If a reversal or chargeback is based on the fact that the Buyer has communicated to his payment service provider that he has not received the Tickets or the Account Holder has reported an unauthorised use of his payment account or credit card information to his payment service provider, and StubHub Services cannot verify the delivery of the Tickets, you are obliged to prove that the Tickets were delivered within the required delivery time frame to the address communicated to you by StubHub.

Hyperwallet Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions are effective as of January 1, 2021. See Section 1.2.4 for further information on how changes may be made. By registering your Pay Portal, you agree to abide by these Terms and Conditions.
1. Hyperwallet and You
1.1.1 Hyperwallet is a PayPal service. We provide payment services and related functionality and technology using a global payout platform and network of financial partners to deliver a range of payout solutions to Hyperwallet’s business customers (each a “Payor”) (the “Services”) who desire to make payments to their designated payees, like you (a “Payee”).
1.1.2 Hyperwallet operates and provides the Services through local affiliates, including members of the PayPal group of companies (each an “Affiliate”) around the world. Together with their respective parents, subsidiaries and affiliates, these Affiliates are individually and collectively referred to in these Terms and Conditions as “Hyperwallet”. Affiliates may be registered and licensed in various jurisdictions with relevant regulatory agencies as set forth in the “Licenses and Complaints” section of the website. The Affiliates set out in the Affiliates and Governing Law Schedule also provide Services to Payors.
1.1.3 Hyperwallet has created a technology portal which may be accessed through a website, application programming interface/API, embedded in or integrated with your Payor’s own platform or system, or other method, and may be branded with your Payor’s brand or co-branded with the Hyperwallet brand (the “Pay Portal”). The Pay Portal is the interface that may facilitate certain payments which you will receive from the Payor (the “Payouts” and each, a “Payout”). Payout capabilities are available in multiple currencies and can be implemented using a variety of different methods. You may be able to receive Payouts from and as directed by your Payor through one of several methods, each as determined by your Payor, such as (but not limited to) a transfer to your bank account, load to a prepaid card issued to you by a third-party issuer (“Hyperwallet Card”), load to a closed loop electronic gift card, load to your existing debit card, cheque, cash pickup at collection locations provided by third-party money transfer providers (e.g. Western Union), and other payment methods (each a “Payout Method” and collectively “Payout Methods”)), all as supported and made available from time to time. Some Payout Methods may require access to the Pay Portal. The Payouts may comprise money remittance and/or the issuance of stored value. The Payouts are delivered through the Affiliates, and a network of banks and financial service providers (“Network Partners”). The Payouts are subject to additional terms and conditions as set forth in the Payout Schedule.
1.1.4 Among the Payout Methods, Payees in the EEA or the UK must contract with us directly to use the Payment Processing Services (as defined below) on the Payor’s marketplace platform. Terms applicable to these Payment Processing Services appear in Section 11 of the Payout Schedule.
1.1.5 Fees for Services
18.104.22.168 YOUR USE OF THE PAY PORTAL MAY BE SUBJECT TO FEES, AS DETERMINED BY YOUR PAYOR. THESE FEES MAY INCLUDE RECURRING MONTHLY FEES, YEARLY FEE AND/OR FEES FOR INACTIVITY. To view the schedule of fees applicable to your use of the Pay Portal, please click on “Fees” appearing under “Resources” section of the header menu on the Pay Portal Home Screen. Or, you may click on “Fees” at the bottom of the Home Screen (the “Fee Schedule”). Fees will be charged only where permitted by applicable law.
22.214.171.124 BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU AGREE PAY THE FEES APPEARING IN THE FEE SCHEDULE. You further agree that Hyperwallet may collect the fees automatically from available funds reflected in your Pay Portal, or from the amounts transferred by you through the Payout Methods, as applicable. In addition, you agree third parties facilitating the Payout Methods may impose additional fees on transactions, which may be deducted from available funds reflected in your Pay Portal balance, depending on the type of transaction you conduct. These fees will be displayed to you before completing the transaction. Please review Section 3 for additional terms related to the Fees for Services.
1.1.6 In addition to the Payouts and Pay Portal, Hyperwallet may also originate debit entries directly from your bank account and deliver them to your Payor (“Direct Debits”). Hyperwallet originates Direct Debit entries when instructed by your Payor subject to a written authorization you have granted to your Payor to debit funds from the bank account associated with your Pay Portal. Such authorization must be signed by you, and in a form drafted to meet the requirements imposed under applicable law, including applicable rules of any clearing network through which the Direct Debit entries may be settled. Hyperwallet is reliant on your Payor alone for instructions regarding the amount and frequency of Direct Debit entries. Hyperwallet is not responsible for any losses, fees, or penalties you may incur as a result of processing the Direct Debits from your bank account under a valid and current authorization. Unless applicable law provides for automatic expiry of an authorization, you must communicate your intent to cancel an authorization by sending a written cancellation request to your Payor. In the event that your bank rejects a Direct Debit entry for non-sufficient funds, or in relation to a dispute, Hyperwallet may present the Direct Debit entry again two additional times. Three Direct Debit entries returned for non-sufficient funds by your bank within a 60-day period will void your authorization automatically. To dispute a Direct Debit entry, you must notify the financial institution holding your bank account that you intend to dispute the entry within the 60-day period following the date that your account was debited. Following notification of the dispute with your bank, you should contact Payor to notify them of the dispute.
1.2. Why these Terms and Conditions are important to You
1.2.1. The terms “you”, “your” and “Payee” refer to users making use of the Pay Portal to obtain Payouts. The terms “Hyperwallet,” “we,” “us,” “our,” and similar terms, refer to Hyperwallet as described herein. Other capitalized terms not otherwise defined within the body of the Terms and Conditions shall have the meanings set forth in the Definitions Schedule.
1.2.2. Your Payor has engaged Hyperwallet to provide the Services to it, for its subsequent provision of certain Payouts to you.

1.2.3. The Terms and Conditions govern your receipt of Payouts through the Payout Methods. As your Payor determines which Payout Methods will be made available to you, not all terms and conditions will apply. Only those terms and conditions relating to the certain Payout Methods determined by your Payor to be made available to you may apply. Nonetheless, these are important documents which you should read and consider carefully. Please print or save a copy of these Terms and Conditions for your records.

If you do not wish to accept the new or changed Terms and Conditions, you must cease accessing the Pay Portal and discontinue receiving the Payouts.
1.2.5. If there is any conflict between the Schedules and any other parts of the Terms and Conditions, the other parts of the Terms and Conditions will prevail with the exception of Section 11 of the Payout Schedule, which shall take precedence over all other parts of the Schedules and the Terms and Conditions in relation to Payees in the EEA or the UK who are using the Payment Processing Services on the Payor’s marketplace platform.

5.4.5. Any arbitral award shall be final and binding and may be enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction.

This Agreement to Arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted.
5.4.11. You and Hyperwallet agree that each of us may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both you and Hyperwallet agree otherwise, the arbitrator(s) may not consolidate or join more than one person’s or party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative or class proceeding. Also, the arbitrator(s) may award relief (including monetary, injunctive and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party’s individual claim(s).

3. General Payout Terms and Conditions
3.1. Bank Account
By directing us and/or your Payor (as the case may be) to make a transfer to your bank account, you are affirming that you are the owner of the bank account, have confirmed the accuracy of the bank account information provided to us, and have authority to initiate transactions in respect of the bank account. Hyperwallet will make electronic credits and debits via bank clearing networks and/or wire to your bank in the amount Payor specifies unless there are insufficient funds available. You agree that your requests for a transfer to your bank account constitutes your authorization to Hyperwallet to make the transfers to and from your designated checking or savings account, including any adjustments necessary for any transactions which are credited or debited in error. We may permit you or we may utilize other methods to process any particular transfer, such as a wire transfer. Once you have provided your authorization for the transfer, you will not be able to cancel that electronic transfer unless you do so in a manner that allows us and your bank a reasonable opportunity to act on such cancellation.
It may take two to five business days for the proceeds of the transfer to transmit to your bank account. In some situations, we may provide you with an estimate of the processing time your transaction will require via the Pay Portal. Although we may be able to specify a timeframe in which the funds will reach your designated bank, we cannot be responsible for any delays due to any bank clearing network or your bank’s processing of a transaction and cannot guarantee that your bank will make funds available to you on the day it receives the transfer.
You must provide us with the correct details for the bank account to which you would like to transfer funds. If you input incorrect bank account information, you agree that you will not hold Hyperwallet liable for any claims or losses should a transaction not be properly executed, including but not limited to where funds are sent to a bank account in error or otherwise. Your bank and/or a bank which is part of a bank clearing network may charge a return fee or other related fee in connection with the attempted transfer. In the event such a fee is incurred or otherwise imposed on Hyperwallet, such fee will be passed on to you and deducted from your Pay Portal balance or amounts otherwise payable to you.
We will not be liable where you do not have enough money available to transfer, your bank account is closed, the transaction exceeds dollar or frequency limitations imposed by us or your bank, your bank does not honor a transaction or participate in electronic funding, the transaction is not processed, or the transaction is returned by your bank or where we otherwise advise you that your request will not be processed. We shall have no responsibility for any action your bank may take with respect to such transfer to your bank account, including offsetting amounts owed to such bank from such transfer due to an overdrawn account, outstanding fees, or otherwise.
3.2. Hyperwallet Card
You may be issued a Visa® or MasterCard® prepaid card in connection with the Payout Methods (“Hyperwallet Card”). The Hyperwallet Card may be branded with the name and logo of “Hyperwallet” or the name and logo of your Payor. The Hyperwallet Card may be a physical card and/or virtual card. Your Hyperwallet Card is issued by a financial institution (“Issuer”) and your use of the Hyperwallet Card is subject to the terms and conditions, including fees, of applicable Issuer Cardholder Agreements. You can receive a copy of such Cardholder Agreement by contacting us.
The Hyperwallet Card does not constitute a credit card or a checking, savings, deposit or other bank account in your name. It is only available to you in connection with your trade or business and your receipt of the proceeds of your commercial activities in such trade or business from your Payor in the form of the Payouts. It is not a consumer account and is not connected in any way to any other account you may have. Funds transferred to your Hyperwallet Card will no longer be held by Hyperwallet and are instead held by the Issuer. Any balance on a Hyperwallet Card may be held by the Issuer in applicable Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or equivalent government-insured account(s). Hyperwallet may show you the amount of any balance on your Hyperwallet Card in the Pay Portal for informational purposes only.
If you or your Payor directs us to transfer funds to your Hyperwallet Card, you authorize us to, regularly and without further instruction or action by you, load funds to your Hyperwallet Card, subject to limits that may apply to your Hyperwallet Card. We reserve the right to delay or otherwise limit the amounts loaded to your Hyperwallet Card at any time at our sole discretion and/or require further documentation before loading any funds.
Funds transferred to your Hyperwallet Card are generally available within one (1) Business Day (defined below) following the day the transaction request is received by us. The currency loaded on to the Hyperwallet Card is determined by the funds received from your Payor and the requirements of the Issuer and which may further be dictated by Visa or MasterCard (as the case may be).
Hyperwallet Cards do not offer any credit or overdraft features on the Hyperwallet Cards. Hyperwallet does not authorize prepaid card transactions where there the card has insufficient or unavailable funds. In the event of a merchant forced transactions, settlement timing or errors create a negative card balance, Hyperwallet will not charge an overdraft fee to you.
Where permitted by the card issuer, Hyperwallet may transfer funds from your Hyperwallet Card to your bank account identified in the Pay Portal. You acknowledge and agree that any request of Hyperwallet by you to conduct such transfers (unloads) is fulfilled at Hyperwallet’s discretion strictly in its capacity as a service provider and program manager for the bank that issued the Hyperwallet Card to you. You further agree that any such transfer requested by you is made in connection with and on behalf of your trade or business.
3.3. Personal Debit Card
In certain cases, your Payor may support the ability for you to transfer your payments on an existing Visa® or MasterCard® debit card associated with your US bank account (“Debit Card”). Your Debit Card must be enabled by the bank that issued you the Debit Card.

Once funds are transferred to your Debit Card, such funds are no longer held by Hyperwallet and are instead held by the bank that issued you the Debit Card. If you or your Payor direct us to transfer funds to your Debit Card, you authorize us to, regularly and without further instruction or action by you, load funds to your Debit Card, subject to limits that may apply to your Debit Card. We reserve the right to limit the amounts loaded to your Debit Card at any time at our sole discretion and/or require further documentation before loading any funds.
Funds transferred to your Debit Card are generally available within one (1) Business Day (defined below) following the day the transaction request is received by us. We cannot be responsible for any delays due to Visa® or MasterCard®, any network or third-party processor, or your bank’s processing or failure or delay in processing of a transaction and cannot guarantee that your bank will make funds available to you on the day it receives the transfer to your Debit Card. The currency loaded on to the Debit Card is determined by the funds received from your Payor and the requirements of the bank that issued you the Debit Card and which may further be dictated by Visa® or MasterCard® (as the case may be).
You must provide us with the correct details for the Debit Card to which you would like to transfer funds. If you input incorrect Debit Card information, you agree that you will not hold Hyperwallet liable for any claims or losses should a transaction not be properly executed, including but not limited to where funds are sent to another debit card in error or otherwise. Your bank may charge a return fee or other related fee in connection with the attempted transfer.

3.4 PayPal Account
If permitted by your Payor, and as Hyperwallet may elect to make available from time to time, you may receive Payouts to a PayPal Account (as defined below) in your name. Transfers directed to your PayPal Account are subject to the terms and conditions imposed by the issuer of your PayPal Account. By directing us and/or your Payor (as the case may be) to make a Payout to your PayPal Account, you are affirming that you are the owner of the PayPal Account, have confirmed the accuracy of the account information provided to us, and have authority to initiate transfers to the PayPal Account.

3.7. Electronic Gift Cards

The eGift Card retailer may be selected by your Payor or selected by you from among the menu of retailers that Hyperwallet may make available to you. EGift Cards issued to you will be sent to the email address associated with your Pay Portal. Payments received by you via eGift Card are generally available to you for immediate use on the eGift Card sent to you.

You may request to receive funds that are reflected in your Pay Portal in a different currency only at the time of and in connection with your requested Payout via a Payout Method.

10. Additional Terms for Canada and the United States
In the United States and Canada and except as otherwise explicitly agreed to by Hyperwallet through this Payout Schedule, Hyperwallet acts as an agent of the Payor in carrying out the Payout Method instructions and remittance of funds of such Payors to their designated payees. As an agent of the Payor, any balance of funds in the Pay Portal does not represent stored value owned by you but belongs to and is the property of the Payor until actually received by you via your Payout Method notwithstanding any ability you may have to direct or instruct us to make any payments of funds reflected in the Pay Portal to your Payout Method and/or to execute any Additional Optional Services such as but not limited to Spendback or Promos.
10.2. Stored Value
Where expressly indicated by Hyperwallet only, a Pay Portal balance may be treated as stored value and owned by you. In these situations, Hyperwallet will identify your Pay Portal balance as stored value and owned by you in the Pay Portal. Any such stored value is not a gift card or gift certificate. Where Hyperwallet has identified the balance in your Pay Portal as stored value, you do not need to maintain a balance in your Pay Portal in order to receive the Services although Hyperwallet reserves the right to close your Pay Portal in its sole discretion. You acknowledge that the Services and the Pay Portal are not bank accounts and that Hyperwallet is not a financial institution. Funds reflected in or transmitted in connection with the Pay Portal do not earn any interest payable to you.
Hyperwallet will combine your balance with the balances of other users and will safeguard those funds in accordance with applicable US state money transmitter laws.

The nature and extent of consumer protections may differ from those for firms based in the UK. Details of the Temporary Permissions Regime, which allows EEA-based firms to operate in the UK for a limited period while seeking full authorisation, are available on the Financial Conduct Authority’s website.
PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A. provides Services to you in accordance with this Section 11. If you are receiving Payment Processing Services, PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A. provides these to you pursuant to Section 11.5.
11.2. Security and Use of Regulated Third-Party Service Providers
As stated in the Terms and Conditions, you must take all the steps you reasonably can to maintain adequate security and control of all IDs, usernames, passwords, personal identification numbers (PINs), or any other codes that you use to access the Pay Portal, receiving the Payouts or in conjunction with use of the Payout Methods, so that no unauthorised person or entity can use your credentials to log on to your Pay Portal. You must tell us as soon as you can by contacting us if you think someone may be using the Pay Portal without your permission. Before using a third-party service provider you should check with the regulator whether it is authorized and review the provider’s terms and conditions. In the event that we have reasonably evidenced and justified concerns about a third-party service provider for reasons relating to authorisation or fraud we may deny the third-party service provider access to your account. In such event we will notify you and the FCA before or immediately after access denial, unless this would compromise our security concerns or it would be unlawful to do so.
11.3.1 Provision of Spendback
If Hyperwallet makes Spendback available to you for the purchase of goods or services provided by your Payor, and except as otherwise agreed, Hyperwallet acts as an agent of the Payor in carrying out the Payout Method instructions, which instructions may be amended to reflect amounts netted off to execute Spendback purchases via the Pay Portal which is provided for the purposes of this section as a regulated money remittance service. Any amounts available for Spendback in the Pay Portal do not represent e-money owned by you but belong to and are the property of the Payor until actually received by you via your Payout Method notwithstanding any ability you may have to direct or instruct us to make any payments of funds reflected in the Pay Portal to your Payout Method and/or to execute any Additional Optional Services such as but not limited to Spendback. For the avoidance of doubt, the Pay Portal is not a payment account within the meaning of PSD2. Hyperwallet may offer, limit, restrict, or terminate any such services without notice to you.
11.3.2. Spending limits
You agree that we may apply spending limits to your Hyperwallet account and we’ll tell you if we do so.
11.3.3. Stopping a Payout Method
We may stop a Payout Method if:
(i) you do not have enough money in your account to complete the Payout;
(ii) the Payout Method would put you over any spending limit we introduce;
(iii) we reasonably believe and discover that a Payout Method may be unauthorized or you may be acting illegally or that it would be against the law for us allow the Payout Method to be processed; and/or

11.3.4 Blocking your Payout instrument
If we have reason to believe that you have engaged in a breach of these Terms and Conditions or any applicable laws and regulations, we may take various actions to protect Hyperwallet, your Payor, a third party, or you from fees, fines, penalties and any other liability. The actions we may take include but are not limited to the following:
(i) We may, at any time and without liability, suspend, block, limit, close or cancel your right to use your account entirely or for any particular transaction, which may in turn suspend, block, limit, close or cancel access to the Payout Methods. We will normally give you advance notice of any suspension or cancellation but we may, if it is reasonable to do so (for example if you are in breach of these Terms and Conditions or we consider it advisable for security reasons), suspend or cancel your right to use your account without prior notice to you; or
(ii) Refuse any particular Payout Method at any time for any reason and will only be required to make available the fact of the refusal and the reasons for the refusal and how you may resolve the problem, where possible, upon request and provided it is not prohibited by law
11.4. PSD2 Provisions
Depending upon the Payouts to be made available to you by your Payor, certain Payout Methods described above constitute a regulated money remittance service in EEA or UK and do not involve you having e-money with us or any Affiliate. In the event that Payout Methods constitute money remittance, then your payment service provider will be a third party such as your bank or card issuer and you should refer to such party’s terms and conditions for the provision of regulated payment services to you.
In the event that you are in receipt of the Payment Processing Services pursuant to Section 11.5, then we are your payment service provider and our provision of regulated payment services to you is governed by all the terms herein and subject to the disapplication of certain provisions of EU’s Payment Services Directive (Directive 2015/2366/EU) (“PSD2”). You agree that, if and to the extent that the provision of any Payouts at any time is subject to any legislation in any jurisdiction implemented for purposes of transposing PSD2, the following provisions of PSD2 shall not apply to this Agreement or to the provision of such Payouts:
(i) Articles 40 (Charges for information), 41 (Burden of proof on information requirements), 42 (Derogation from information requirements for low-value payment instruments and electronic money), 44 (Prior general information), 45 (Information and conditions), 46 (Information for the payer and payee after the initiation of a payment order), 47 (Information for payer's account servicing payment service provider in the event of a payment initiation service), 48 (Information for the payer after receipt of the payment order), 49 (Information for the payee after execution), 51 (Prior general information), 52 (Information and conditions), 53 (Accessibility of information and conditions of the framework contract), 54 (Changes in conditions of the framework contract), 55 (Termination), 56 (Information before execution of individual payment transactions), 57 (Information for the payer on individual payment transactions), 58 (Information for the payee on individual payment transactions), 59 (Currency and currency conversion), 60 (Information on additional charges or reductions), 62(1) (Charges applicable), 64(3) (Consent and withdrawal of consent), 72 (Evidence on authentication and execution of payment transactions), 74 (Payer's liability for unauthorised payment transactions), 76 (Refunds for payment transactions initiated by or through a payee), 77 (Requests for refunds for payment transactions initiated by or through a payee), 80 (Irrevocability of a payment order), and 89 (Payment service providers' liability for non-execution, defective or late execution of payment transactions); and
(ii) where transactions are neither euro nor pound sterling transactions, the requirements regarding execution and time-value dating set out in any PSD2 transposition relating to Articles 83 to 85 of PSD2 will not apply to this Agreement or to the provision of such Payouts, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law.

(i) PayPal Payment Processing Services Fees. The fees for your use of the PayPal Payment Processing Services through the Payor Platform are accessible on the Payor Platform or otherwise as disclosed to you by the Payor Platform or PayPal. You undertake to pay such fees and your payment of such fees constitutes valid consideration for purposes of these Platform Terms and Conditions between you and PayPal. Upon instructions by your Payor, PayPal will have the right to deduct from your Platform Payee Account funds PayPal’s fees for the PayPal Payment Processing Services. You are responsible for the fees for the PayPal Payment Processing Services even if there are insufficient funds to cover such fees associated with your Platform Payee Account. If your Platform Payee Account funds are not sufficient to cover the fees, you authorise PayPal to debit immediately the amount owed from your Payouts. In the event that PayPal is unable to recover any fee amount that is due from your Platform Payee Account, PayPal may terminate your use of the PayPal Payment Processing Services within 30 days of the date that the fee was due, and you will remain obligated to pay PayPal for any unpaid amounts.
(ii) Payor Platform Services Fees. You hereby agree that the Payor Platform can deduct from your Platform Payee Account balance any Platform Services fees or other amounts payable to Payor Platform communicated to us by the Payor Platform. You are responsible for such payments to the Payor Platform even if there are insufficient funds to cover such fees associated with your Platform Payee Account. If your Platform Payee Account funds are not sufficient to cover the fees, you authorise PayPal to debit immediately the amount owed from your Payout Methods. In the event that PayPal is unable to recover any fee amount that is due from your Platform Payee Account, PayPal may terminate your use of the PayPal Payment Processing Services within 30 days of the date that the fee was due, and you will remain obligated to pay PayPal for any unpaid amounts. If you want to cancel the authorisation for the future, you can close your account with the Payor Platform.
(iii) Taxes. It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the payments you make or receive, and it is your responsibility to collect, report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. PayPal is not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your Payout Methods or Payouts, or for collecting, reporting or remitting any taxes arising from any transaction.
(i) General. You will receive a Payout of your Platform Payee Account funds from PayPal in accordance with Section 2 of the Payout Schedule of the Terms and Conditions. Any funds associated with your Platform Payee Account, net of any deductions, set-off or debit amounts owed to the Payor Platform or PayPal, will constitute a Payout. If any amounts owed to PayPal exceed the amount of funds associated with your Platform Payee Account, PayPal may initiate a debit from your Payout Methods (if applicable). You agree that PayPal may debit your account for the applicable amounts, and/or setoff the applicable amounts against future Payouts. Upon PayPal’s request, you agree to provide PayPal with all necessary bank account, routing and related information and grant PayPal any required permission to debit the applicable amounts from your Payout Method. Any Payouts, including the timing thereof, will be in accordance with the terms and conditions established by, and communicated to you by, the Payor Platform. Any Payout may be reduced by the amount of fees, fines and amounts owed to PayPal or the Payor Platform for any reason.
(ii) Suspension of Payouts. PayPal reserves the right to suspend the Payouts to you, even after you have stopped accepting payments to your Platform Payee Account through the Payor Platform. Examples of situations where PayPal may do so are: (i) when PayPal is instructed to do so by the Payor Platform; (ii) where there are pending, anticipated, or excessive chargebacks, refunds, reversals, disputes or invalidated payments; (iii) in the event that PayPal suspects or becomes aware of suspicious activity; (iv) where PayPal is required by applicable law or court order. If PayPal exercises its right to withhold a Payout for any reason, PayPal will work with the Payor Platform to communicate the general reason for withholding the Payout and give you a timeline for releasing the funds and any necessary steps you’re required to take.
(iii) Incorrect Payouts. The information required for receiving your Payouts will depend on the financial institution where you hold your Payout Method. Please make sure that any information about your Payout Method that you provide to PayPal is accurate and complete. If your Payout Method information changes or you decide that you want to switch to a different Payout Method, you must notify PayPal by following the procedures established by the Payor Platform. The Payor Platform might require you to provide notice of a change a certain number of days in advance of the change taking effect. You understand that this requirement exists to ensure the Payor Platform has sufficient time to notify us of the change and to give us time to reflect the change in our systems. PayPal will not be responsible for any problems with a Payout that results from PayPal using incorrect Payout Method information because of your delay in providing notice to the Payor Platform.

- through no fault of ours, you did not have enough available funds to complete the transaction,
- our system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transaction, or
