Due Date and ACH Authorization
Payment Gateway fees shall begin on the Effective Date and You will be billed on the first business day of each month following the Effective Date for any and all amounts owing under this Agreement. If fees accrue to more than $50.00 USD at anytime in any given month, Payment Gateway will bill You the full amount due on a more frequent basis at Payment Gateway’s discretion.
You must authorize Payment Gateway to initiate transaction entries to Your depositories account through ACH. This authority is to remain in full force and effect until i) Payment Gateway has received written notification from You of Your request for termination in such time as to afford Payment Gateway and Your depository institution a commercially reasonable opportunity to acknowledge and respond to the request and ii) Payment Gateway has collected all fees due and owing under this agreement. If Payment Gateway is unable to collect amounts owing from your depository account, You hereby authorize Payment Gateway to charge Your credit card for any and all amounts owing to Payment Gateway under this Agreement. Entries initiated to or from Your depository account will be in accordance with the rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) and/or any other regulatory body or agency having jurisdiction over the subject matter hereof.
You must promptly update Your account information with Payment Gateway or Affiliate Partner with current and accurate information. If You fail to provide Payment Gateway or Affiliate Partner with current and accurate depository account or credit card account information, Payment Gateway may immediately discontinue providing Payment Gateway Services to You, without liability, until such information is provided to Payment Gateway and/or terminate this Agreement. You acknowledge that any change in account information may not be effective until the month following the month in which Payment Gateway receives such notice. Termination of Your authorization shall result in termination of any and all Payment Gateway Services.
Affiliate Partner Bills You
In furtherance of Section 8.1, if You are billed by an Affiliate Partner for some or all of the Fees, You shall pay the Affiliate Partner in such manner as mutually agreed upon between You and such Affiliate Partner.
Payment Gateway Service Fees
You shall pay to Payment Gateway the fees as set forth in the Fee Schedule provided to You by Payment Gateway and/or, if applicable Affiliate Partner. The Fee Schedule is hereby incorporated into the terms of this Agreement by reference.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Your relationship with the Affiliate Partner that offered you the Payment Gateway Services expires or terminates and such Affiliate Partner was billing You for certain Fees, then You may continue using the Payment Gateway Services. If You elect to continue using the Payment Gateway Services, You acknowledge and agree that Payment Gateway may begin to bill You for such Fees in the amounts that the Affiliate Partner had been charging You. In accordance with Section 15.5 Payment Gateway may amend the Fee schedule after providing You with thirty (30) days notice.
Other Fees and Charges
You shall incur a late fee in the amount set forth in the fee schedule if any amounts due to Payment Gateway under this Agreement are not paid on or before the tenth (10th) day following the date when due. In addition, You shall be subject to a finance charge equal to one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest rate allowable by law, whichever is less, determined and compounded daily from the date due until the date paid. Payment of such late fee(s) and finance charge(s) will not excuse or cure any breach or default for late payment. Payment Gateway may accept any check or payment from You without prejudice to its rights to recover the balance due or to pursue any other right or remedy. No endorsement or statement on any check or payment or any correspondence accompanying any check or payment or elsewhere will be construed as an accord or satisfaction.
On each occurrence when Payment Gateway is unable to collect fees on Your Account for any reason, including but not limited to insufficient funds, closed account, or any other negative response, Payment Gateway may charge You a Return Payment Fee in the amount of $25.00 USD, or as set forth in the fee schedule.
If You have not paid all owing amounts after two (2) days when due, Payment Gateway may, in its sole discretion, discontinue providing You with Payment Gateway Services. If You have still not paid all owing amounts after thirty (30) days following the date the payment was due, then Payment Gateway may, in its sole discretion, immediately terminate this Agreement. Notwithstanding, if You subsequently pay in full all owing fees, including but not limited to late fees, finance charges and Return Payment Fees, and if Payment Gateway has not already terminated this Agreement, then Payment Gateway may elect to reactivate the Payment Gateway Services and charge You a Service Reactivation Fee in the amount set forth in the fee schedule.
You agree to pay all costs and expenses of whatever nature, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by or on behalf of Payment Gateway in connection with the collection of any unpaid charges and fees.
