2. The Merchant Service and these Terms

2.1. These Terms apply to your use of the Merchant Service and you are responsible for ensuring that all personnel authorised by you to use the Merchant Service comply with these Terms.

2.2. The Merchant Service consists of the roqqett.com website (the “Site”), the software applications hosted or made available by Roqqett and any other related content and materials, however you access them, whether via the mobile or tablet app (the “App”) or via the Site. When you sign up for an account with Roqqett this is referred to as your “Roqqett Account”.

3. Access to the Merchant Service

3.1. In order to set up a Roqqett Account you must provide Roqqett with basic information about your company as well as ID for your directors and ultimate beneficial owners, in accordance with Roqqett’s “know your business” (KYB) procedures. Roqqett will seek to verify this information using third party verification service providers and will then decide whether to approve your Roqqett Account. If your Roqqett Account is approved, Roqqett will repeat the verification checks on future occasions and if you fail to provide the information necessary for it to do so, Roqqett reserves the right to terminate your Roqqett Account.

3.2. When setting up a Roqqett Account you are required to provide details for the bank account to which transaction funds will be paid and refunds will be debited (the “Merchant Bank Account”). You must only link your Roqqett Account with a bank account registered in your name and must not provide bank account details which relate to any other person or entity. Roqqett will then send a request to your bank to allow your Merchant Bank Account to be linked to the Merchant Service. This request will need to be approved by you before you can take payments using the Merchant Service. You can change your Merchant Bank Account details at any time via your App settings.

3.3. You must only allow your authorised personnel to access Roqqett on your behalf. You must, and must make sure that all authorised personnel, treat as confidential the user identification code, password and any other piece of information generated or selected as part of Roqqett’s security procedures, and you must not disclose these to any third party.

4. Availability of the Merchant Service

4.1. Roqqett will always try to ensure that the Merchant Service is available for your use without interruption.

4.2. You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Merchant Service (for example ensuring you have an available internet connection).

5. Fees, transactions and reporting

5.1. There is no charge for downloading the Merchant Service. You will then be charged a transaction fee, at Roqqett’s then standard transaction fee rate, in respect of each payment that you take using the Merchant Service (the “Transaction Fee”). If Roqqett makes a change to the rate of the Transaction Fee it will always provide you with prior notice of the change.

5.2. Once your Roqqett Account has been approved and your Merchant Bank Account has been linked to the Roqqett Service you will be able to take payments via the Merchant Service. In order to take payment your authorised personnel will need to enter the transaction value onto your device which is linked with the Merchant Service and the Merchant Service will send a payment request which will be visible to any Roqqett user within the immediate vicinity. The customer will select the payment request they wish to settle and will use their App to authorise payment to your Merchant Bank Account.

5.3. Funds from your transactions will be processed and paid into your Merchant Bank Account, typically within 2 hours.

5.4. You can access a report of the transactions you have processed and the Transaction Fee due to Roqqett in respect of each (the “Transaction Report”), on the App. Each month Roqqett will generate an invoice based on the Transaction Report. The monthly invoice will cover all Transaction Fees due from you in respect of transactions processed in the previous month. You shall pay any such invoice within 5 days of the date of receipt of such invoice, via direct debit or otherwise, using the bank details notified by Roqqett to you.

5.5. It is your responsibility to review the Transaction Report and notify Roqqett in writing if you think there is an error with any information contained there.

6. Roqqett “Pay Later” option

6.1. Subject to the consumer passing the necessary credit checks, Roqqett offers some consumer users a “Pay Later” option. Any “Pay Later” transaction will be subject to an increased Transaction Fee as per Roqqett’s standard Transaction Fee rates from time to time. If Roqqett makes a change to the rate of the Transaction Fee it will always provide you with prior notice of the change. All other payment terms will remain the same, however Roqqett will be the party providing you with the funds instead of the consumer.

6.2. You can opt-out of allowing consumers to “Pay Later” for your goods or services via the App.

7. Refunds

7.1. You can issue refunds via the Merchant Service for transactions that were processed using the Merchant Service and Roqqett will not charge a further Transaction Fee for issuing a refund.

7.2. Funds will be debited from your Merchant Bank Account in order to issue a refund and you are solely responsible for accepting and processing returns of your products and services. Roqqett has no responsibility for or obligation to process such returns, or to respond to your customers’ enquiries about returns.
