This agreement is between you and SettleGo Solutions Limited trading as OpenPayd (“we/us”).
Under this agreement we’ll give you an OpenPayd account, which will be an electronic money account you can use to:
You may be asked to accept additional terms if you use other services from OpenPayd. Please visit www.openpayd.com/resources/privacy-notice/ and www.openpayd.com/resources/cookies-policy/ for information about how we use your personal data.
You can view account information (including current and previous payments), and instruct us to make new payments through:
If you decide to give your OpenPayd username and password to a TPP to allow them access to your OpenPayd account, they’ll be able to see and do anything you can on your account. If, however, we have a good reason not to give such TPP access, we will tell you as soon as we can (unless it would be unlawful to tell you, or we reasonably think that telling you would compromise our security).
The fees for sending or receiving payments start from 0.1%. You can apply for discounted fees as you increase the amounts you transfer by emailing [email protected].
You must use a valid payment method to pay us to issue electronic money onto your OpenPayd account. The payment methods you can use to pay us for electronic money are:
In certain circumstances, we may need to carry out checks in relation to you, such as checking your identity, to help us meet our legal obligations. We may require you to provide us with information if we reasonably need it in order to complete our checks.
We will ask you for information when you are applying to open your OpenPayd account, and may also ask you for information at other times, where it is reasonable for us to do so. You must provide us with accurate and complete information in response.
Please print or save a copy of this agreement for your records.
You can load money to your OpenPayd electronic money account, pay money from your account, or get a refund of e-money on your account by:
Please note that all telephone conversations may be recorded by us without the use of a warning tone or message, and these recordings may be used to resolve any disputes, for quality assurance, training, fraud prevention and compliance.
You can also ask us to make a payment from your OpenPayd account through a TPP which you’ve allowed to act on your behalf, so long as the TPP is permitted by law to do so.
After we are instructed to make a payment from your OpenPayd account:
You can also receive transfers from other OpenPayd accounts and bank accounts.
You can send money from, or receive money to, your OpenPayd account in a different currency from the account. Please note that:
In any event, we will apply our standard exchange rate (which may change at any time) and applicable charges for such exchange. All charges will be displayed before you complete a payment.
You must take all reasonable steps to keep your OpenPayd password secret (except when you give your OpenPayd username and password to a TPP which is permitted by law to access your OpenPayd account), in order to prevent unauthorised use of your OpenPayd account.
You agree that we may apply limits to the amount you are able to spend and send through your OpenPayd account, and we’ll tell you if we do so. For example, we may apply limits if you ask us to, or if we reasonably think it would help manage the risk of fraud in a proportionate way.
Once you’ve instructed us to make a payment from your OpenPayd account we’ll send the money unless we reasonably think:
Where permitted by law, we will notify you if we’ve stopped a transaction and, if possible, provide our reasons for doing so, as well as anything you can do to correct any errors that led to the stoppage.
We may suspend use of your OpenPayd account if we reasonably believe that:
If we can, we’ll tell you before the suspension (along with our reasons for the suspension). Otherwise we’ll tell you immediately after. However, we won’t tell you if doing so would break the law or compromise our reasonable security measures.
We’ll stop any suspension as soon as we can after the reason for the suspension has ended.
If you wish to contact us, you can do so by emailing [email protected] or calling +44 (0) 208 194 5050.
We will communicate with you in English, and we may contact you at the email address associated with your OpenPayd account. If we have to contact you because of a suspected or actual fraud, or security threat we’ll do so by calling your mobile number. You must let us know of any changes to your email address or mobile number.
In some circumstances another bank or account provider (such as the recipient’s bank, or an intermediary bank involved in enabling a payment to take place to or from your OpenPayd account) may charge us. We will pass that charge on to you where the law allows us to, and where we do pass such a charge to you we will (if we’re able to) tell you beforehand how much it will be.
You can ask us to refund a transaction that someone has made from your OpenPayd account without your permission, so long as you’ve told us (please do so via email or phone) about the problem within 13 months of it happening.
However, we may refuse your request for the refund if we can demonstrate that:
You can also ask us to refund a transaction if we fail to send a payment to the right recipient and for the right amount, so long as you’ve told us (again, please do so via email or phone) about the problem within 13 months of it happening.
However, we may refuse your request for the refund if we can show that the recipient’s bank (or other account provider) received the money or that there was a mistake in the recipient’s details which you gave us. However, if there was a mistake in the account details which you gave us, we’ll still make a reasonable effort to recover the money. If we’re unable to do so, you can make a written request for us to provide you with all the information available to us which is relevant to you in order for you to file a legal claim to recover the money.
In any event, if you ask us to, we’ll make efforts to trace any payment transactions which have not been made (or have not been made properly) and notify you of the outcome. There may be an additional cost imposed by our banking partners to provide this service, which may be passed on to you.
If we fail to send a transaction on time, you can contact us to ask the recipient’s bank (or other account provider) to pay the recipient the interest (if applicable) on their account that would have been paid if the transfer you made had arrived on time.
In addition to your rights above, we’ll refund a transaction if the law requires us to.
If you have an electronic money balance in your OpenPayd account that you haven’t spent, and that you don’t wish to spend, you can cancel some or all of the balance and we’ll send a refund to the preferred payment method associated with your account or to another account that we may agree with you.
If you have an electronic money balance in your OpenPayd account that you haven’t spent for two years or more, we will take reasonable steps to contact you about refunding the balance. If we don’t succeed in contacting you, we may return the money to the last known external account number we have on file for you.
We will not be responsible to you for any loss or costs which you may incur as a result of us breaking this agreement due to:
We can make a change to this agreement for any of the following reasons (with any change being a reasonable and proportionate response to something that is affecting us or that we reasonably think will affect us):
We may make reasonable and proportionate changes for any other reason we cannot foresee, for example to respond to changes in our industry that affect how we wish to deliver our services to you.
We’ll tell you about a change to this agreement at least two months before it takes effect. You can tell us you object to the change before it takes effect, but this will end the agreement. If you do not object to the change we will take that as your acceptance of the change.
This agreement will continue until you or we end it.
You can end this agreement at any time free of charge. We ask you to do so by sending an email to [email protected].
We can end this agreement, including closing your OpenPayd account, at any time, by telling you at least two months before doing so.
We can also end this agreement and close your OpenPayd account more quickly if:
We will tell you that we’re doing this as soon as we can if the law allows us to.
If this agreement ends it will not affect any transactions you’ve already asked us to make.
We shall perform all necessary checks in relation to payments sent to and from an OpenPayd account to ensure we comply with applicable laws. We reserve the right to delay or refuse to execute a payment instruction where we have reasonable grounds to believe that such payment may result in OpenPayd breaching its regulatory obligations.
Each month, we’ll send a link to a statement to the email address associated with your OpenPayd account, setting out details about the transactions to and from your OpenPayd account (unless more than a month has passed since we last sent you a statement and there have not been any payments to or from your OpenPayd account since).
You can ask us to send you a copy of these terms as they apply from time to time or you can get a copy of them from our website.
This agreement (together with any other terms or policies referred to in it) makes up the entire agreement and understanding between you and us in relation to your OpenPayd account. However, this does not limit or exclude your or our liability for any statement or representation which is made fraudulently.
If any part of this agreement is disallowed or found not to be effective by a court or regulator, the rest of it shall continue to apply.
We may choose not to enforce our rights against you and make this contractually binding against us by giving you a notice which expressly states that we have chosen to do so. In all other cases, if we choose not to exercise rights against you, we can still do so later.
You may not transfer any of your rights or obligations under this agreement.
This agreement shall be concluded and interpreted in the English language. If this agreement is translated into another language, it is for reference purposes only. All communications between the parties shall be in the English language.
English law will decide any legal questions about this agreement and about our dealings with you with a view to entering into this agreement. The courts of England and Wales will also be able to deal with any legal questions connected with this agreement.
If you have a complaint related to your OpenPayd account, please contact us at [email protected].
We will do our best to resolve your complaint as soon as possible, and send you a final response by email within 15 days of receiving the complaint. If, in exceptional circumstances, for reasons beyond our control, we need more time to respond, we’ll send you a holding reply within 15 days of receiving your complaint to let you know when you will receive our final response (which will be no later than 35 days from the date on which we first received your complaint).
If you do not receive our final response on time or you are unhappy with our final response, you may be entitled to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service, details of which are available at http://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/consumer/complaints.htm. You can also call them on 0800 023 4567 or tell them about a complaint online (via https://help.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/help). Please note: the ombudsman may not consider a complaint if you have not provided us with the opportunity to resolve it previously.
Alternatively, you may be able to submit your complaint via the European Commission’s Online Dispute Resolution platform, which can be found at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/.
