4. TAPTAP SEND PAYMENT SERVICES

4.1. You can load your Wallet using a Payment Method in your name, accepted in the App.
4.2. When you convert funds from one currency to another within your Wallet we will charge any applicable Service Fees and an exchange rate, as set out in the App at the time of conversion.
4.3. The electronic money held in your Wallet will not earn any interest.
4.4. To make Payment Instructions in the App, you must:
4.4.1. provide information about your Transfer including the full name of the Recipient, the Recipient’s account details and the amount to be transferred;
4.4.2. provide the unique identifier for the Recipient’s account (e.g. the account number or mobile number);
4.4.3. select your Payment Method; and
4.4.4. provide us with any additional information we may request relating to the Payment Instruction (for example, any specific reference number requested by a Business Recipient).
4.5. When you click “Send” on the confirmation page you authorise us to debit your Payment Method and initiate the Transfer.
4.6. You must make sure all the details are accurate before submission. If you enter the wrong details you will send the Transfer to the wrong account and lose your money, we may not be able to get it back.
4.7. Once you click “Send”, we receive your Payment Instruction and will start to execute the Transfer immediately. You will not be able to cancel or change it .
4.8. We will treat a Payment Instruction as received at the time you confirm the Payment Instruction, whether or not that is during a Business Day. When the Recipient’s Service Provider receives the Transfer depends on the currency and Destination Country of the Transfer. If your Transfer is in any currency other than £ or € and to an account outside the UK and EEA, it will reach the account of the Recipient as soon as we can get it there. Banking practices will vary depending on the Destination Country - for more information on when a payment will be credited to the Recipient’s account you will need to contact that Service Provider.
4.9. Transaction times may be longer in the event that the Recipient’s Service Provider needs to undertake enhanced anti-money laundering checks on the transfer. Delivery times quoted on our website (or elsewhere) are representative for the “normal”/average service and are not a guarantee of an individual Transfer time.
4.10. We will provide you with information after acceptance of a Payment Instruction enabling you to identify the Transfer, along with details of the amount of the Transfer in the currency used in the Transfer, any Service Fees we may charge, amount the Recipient will receive, and the date on which the Payment Instruction was received.
4.11. If you have made a Transfer for cash pick-up and the cash is not picked up by the Recipient within 30 days of when it was first made available we may cancel the Transfer and refund the amounts to the Payment Method used. This is subject to the timings and conditions set by our payment processing partners.
4.12. For certain Services, you may set up a recurring Transfer by entering the Recipient and account details, the frequency of the Transfer and amount. We may need to ask for other information as well. If a Transfer is scheduled to be paid in the future (like a recurring Transfer), you can cancel it in the App at any time before the end of the business day before it is due to be sent. The one exception to this is UK direct debits, which can be cancelled at any time before 3pm on the day they are due to be sent. You can’t cancel a payment after it is sent.
4.13. For Business Recipients, you acknowledge that:
4.13.1. we are not an agent of the Business Recipient;
4.13.2. we are not responsible for any mistakes in the invoices or other notifications you receive that indicate the amounts you owe the Business Recipients;
4.13.3. we are not party to agreements between you and the Business Recipient and do not determine any payment terms;
4.13.4. we are not responsible if you do not complete a payment to a Business Recipient;
4.13.5. we are not responsible for the quality or delivery of any goods or services you pay for using our Services;
4.13.6. we are not responsible for mediating disputes or enforcing any underlying arrangements you have with a Business Recipient;
4.13.7. invoices / bills can only be processed to a Business Recipient with a valid reference number - if you provide the wrong reference number you will send the Transfer to the wrong account and lose your money, we will not be able to get it back for you; and
4.13.8. payment to us for a Transfer does not constitute payment to a Business Recipient until they receive the Transfer, and then it may take several Business Days for a Business Recipient to reflect the payment in their customer account system (i.e. their records for what a student, patient or utility customer might owe).
Using a Third Party Provider
4.14. You can choose to use a Third Party Provider:
4.14.1. to request Transfers from your Wallet on your behalf; and/or
4.14.2. to provide account information services to you,
provided the Third Party Provider is acting in accordance with the relevant regulatory requirements and is a participant in the Open Banking initiative. You can check whether the provider is authorised and part of the Open Banking initiative in the information they give to you about the services they will provide and by checking openbanking.org.uk.
4.15. We will treat any instruction from a Third Party Provider as if it was from you. But we will not share your Security Details with any third party.
4.16. If you consent to a Third Party Provider having access to your account, we will assume that you consent to access being granted as frequently as the Third Party Provider requests it.
4.17. If you want to cancel the consent you have given to a Third Party Provider to access your account you should contact them directly. Once a Third Party Provider has initiated a payment, you cannot cancel it.

Once you confirm your order, we start to send the Digital Content and it cannot be recalled. You acknowledge that, once you have asked us to send Digital Content, you have no right to cancel under the Consumer Contracts (Consumer Information, Cancellation and Other Rights) Regulations 2013.
Digital Content T&Cs and Promotions
5.7. Any Digital Content purchased through the Digital Content Services will have its own terms and conditions. You should check any terms and conditions before purchasing any Digital Content. From time to time, Service Providers will run promotions on the Digital Content. These promotions will be subject to additional terms and conditions that will be displayed in the App.
5.8. We are not responsible for the terms and conditions or promotions run by Service Providers.

6.5.1. it would put you over any applicable limits;
6.5.2. it would break this Agreement;
6.5.3. it is unauthorised (e.g. someone else is trying to use the Services without your permission);
6.5.4. it is fraudulent (including where we we suspect that you may be a victim of a scam);
6.5.5. you may be acting illegally; or
6.5.6. we are required to do so by law.
6.6. We will generally inform you before or immediately after refusing a Payment Instruction or suspending your use of the Services, and provide our reasons for doing so. However, we will not provide reasons or any information if doing so is against the law or compromise our security measures.
6.7. We may stop a Third Party Provider from accessing your account for reasons related to unauthorised or fraudulent access to your accounts. We’ll tell you about this using the contact details we hold for you unless this would compromise our security measures or would be unlawful.
7.1. You can request a refund of a Transfer within thirteen (13) months of the Transfer occurring if:
7.1.1. someone (including a Third Party Provider) made a Payment Instruction without your permission; or
7.1.2. we fail to send a Transfer on time to the right Recipient and for the right amount, as set out on your confirmed Payment Instruction.
7.2. However, we may refuse a refund if we can show that:
7.2.1. you have acted fraudulently;

7.2.3. you are asking for a refund of a Transfer that took place before you told us that your login was being misused;

A request for a refund for a Transfer must be submitted in writing (by email) to the contact details listed in the About Us section, giving the Sender’s full name, address, and phone number, together with the Transfer number, amount of the Transfer, and the reason for your refund request.
7.4. If we have executed the Transfer in accordance with your Payment Instruction you provided, and that information was incorrect, we are not responsible for the error. We will make reasonable efforts to recover the funds if possible. We may charge you a reasonable fee, reflective of our efforts, to do so.
7.5. Refunds will be credited automatically to the latest known Payment Method used to fund the Transfer (if any), in the same currency used to fund the Transfer. We may request additional details from you to process the refund.
7.6. We are not responsible for refunding payment Transfers made using a Payment Service to pay bills or for goods/services unless it falls within Section 7.1 above.

11. HOW YOUR MONEY IS PROTECTED
11.1. When we provide you Payment Services, we will hold your money when you add money to the Wallet or when we receive payment for a Transfer that has not yet completed. When we hold money for you, we protect it by insuring it or placing it into one of the dedicated client money bank accounts that we hold with large commercial or central banks (client money accounts keep your money separated from our own money, and the types of banks we can use are set by regulations). This is called “safeguarding”. We keep safeguarding any money we hold for you (e.g. the balance in your Wallet) until you pay it out or get it refunded. In the event of our insolvency, you will be paid from the proceeds of insurance and/or funds in these dedicated client money bank accounts in priority to other creditors in accordance with applicable law.
11.2. Your use of the Services does not qualify for protection under the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme (“FSCS”). The Wallet is an electronic money account, not a bank account, so is not covered by the FSCS.
12.1. If you have a complaint related to your use of the Services, please contact us via our Customer Service Team. We will acknowledge receiving your complaint promptly.
12.2. 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 will send you a holding reply within 15 days of receiving your complaint to let you know when you will receive our final response. The final response will be no later than 35 days from the date on which we first received your complaint.
12.3. Except for complaints about Digital Content Services, if you do not receive our final response on time, or you are unhappy with our final response, you can refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service within six months of the date we sent (or should have sent) our final response to you. To contact the Financial Ombudsman Service you can:
12.3.1. Call them on 0800 023 4567 (or +44 20 7964 0500. if you are outside the UK).
12.3.2. Contact them online: https://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/make-complaint
12.3.3. Find further information at https://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/consumers
12.3.4. You can also make a complaint to the Financial Conduct Authority.
13. FEES AND EXCHANGE RATES
13.1. You must pay any applicable Service Fees. Our Service Fees and live exchange rates are available on our website and in the App. Service Fees are due when you submit your Payment Instruction or an instruction to buy and send Digital Content, and are non-refundable.We will let you know the exact amount you must pay in the App before you are asked to confirm your Payment Instruction or send Digital Content.
13.2. Our exchange rate is the rate set by us for the relevant currency pair and Service, which will generally change on a daily basis. For some currencies, there will be a difference between the exchange rate at which we buy foreign currency and the exchange rate provided to you, which is designed to cover our costs.
13.3. When you make Transfers, load your Wallet and pay for Digital Content in a different currency from the one in which your Payment Method is denominated (e.g. you pay in GBP to receive an equivalent amount in a different currency) we will apply our standard exchange rate (which may change at any time) and any applicable Service Fees for such exchange, as set out in the App at the time of conversion.
13.4. The Wallet is designed for you to make Transfers, not as a way to save money in a different currency. An Inactivity Charge will apply when you have funds in your Wallet but have not made a Transfer from the Wallet for over two (2) years. Before charge or increase the Inactivity Charge we will contact you. The longer you hold funds in the Wallet without making a Transfer or asking for a refund, the more the Inactivity Charge will be:
13.4.1. £30 a month (i.e. equivalent to approximately £1 a day to cover our costs of holding funds for you) for the first two years of inactivity.
13.4.2. £50 a month after the first two years of inactivity (i.e. from four years after you stopped using your Wallet).
