As consideration for the services you purchased, you agree to pay PayPal the applicable service(s) fees set forth on our Web site, or as otherwise provided by PayPal concurrently with this Agreement, at the time of your selection, or, if applicable, upon receipt of your invoice from PayPal. All fees are due immediately and are non-refundable, except as otherwise expressly noted herein or in one or more attached Schedules. Unless otherwise specified herein or on our Web site, the Services are for a one-year initial term and renewable thereafter for successive one-year periods. Any renewal of your Services with us is subject to our then-current terms and conditions, including, but not limited to, successful completion of any applicable authentication procedure, and payment of all applicable service fees at the time of renewal. Additional payment terms may apply to the PayPal services you purchase, as set forth in the applicable Schedules to this Agreement. You are solely responsible for the credit card or Direct Debit (“ DDR ”) account information you provide to PayPal and must promptly inform PayPal of any changes thereto (e.g., change of expiration date or account number). Changes should be communicated to PayPal by entering the updated information through the PayPal tools or contacting PayPal customer support. All payments shall be made in Australian dollars. All fees are non-refundable unless otherwise explicitly stated in this Agreement. If we do issue a refund, it will only be via the same payment method used by you to pay for the Services. For additional services or add-on services, Merchant shall either prepay PayPal’s then-current annual prepaid fees, if available, or pay the then-current monthly fees for such services, in accordance with Sections 6.2 and 6.3 below. If Merchant uses PayPal add-on services that are subject to additional standard fees that are not prepaid at enrollment, then PayPal shall either immediately charge Merchant’s credit card or debit Merchant’s DDR account, as applicable, for PayPal’s then-current fees for such services or invoice Merchant for such additional standard fees, and Merchant shall pay such invoice immediately. You agree to pay all value added, sales and other taxes (other than taxes based on PayPal’s income) related to PayPal services or payments made by you hereunder. All payments due to PayPal shall be made without any deduction or withholding on account of any tax, duty, charge or penalty except as required by law in which case the sum payable by a party in respect of which such deduction or withholding is to be made shall be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after making such deduction or withholding, e PayPal receives and retains (free from any liability in respect thereof) a net sum equal to the sum it would have received but for such deduction or withholding being required. Set up fees, if any, will become payable on the applicable effective date for the applicable PayPal services. All sums due and payable that remain unpaid after any applicable cure period herein will accrue interest as a late charge of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is less. Merchant hereby authorises PayPal to charge Merchant’s credit card provided to PayPal or debit Merchant’s DDR account for the fees due for the Services, and Merchant shall provide to PayPal proper debit authorisation for purposes of allowing PayPal to debit the applicable Merchant account to collect fees due under this Agreement. All fees owed by Merchant to third parties (for example, Financial Institutions, Financial Processors and merchant account providers), are Merchant’s sole responsibility and are not covered by this Agreement.
6.1 For Annual Prepaid Agreements.
Merchant agrees to pay to PayPal the applicable annual fees for the applicable Services enrolled for and used by Merchant (the “ Annual Prepaid Service Fee ”) for twelve (12) months from the due date as described above in this Section 6, or twenty-four (24) months if Merchant prepays for two (2) years. Merchant shall pay a separate Annual Prepaid Service Fee for each PayPal Services account for which Merchant registers. Merchant agrees that PayPal shall have no obligation to provide the Services until it has received Merchant’s Annual Prepaid Service Fee. We will endeavor to provide you notice prior to the renewal of the Services at least fifteen (15) days in advance of the renewal date. Unless either party terminates the Agreement early in accordance with the terms herein or unless otherwise notified by PayPal electronically or via the PayPal Manager Web Site, then for each renewal term of this Agreement following the initial annual or bi-annual prepaid term, Merchant hereby authorises PayPal to charge Merchant’s credit card or DDR account that PayPal has on file for Merchant or invoice Merchant, as applicable, for the annual renewal period. In the event Merchant desires to request another payment method, Merchant shall contact Customer Support no less than thirty (30) days prior to the end of the applicable prepaid term. PayPal reserves the right at the end of each prepaid term to change its fees upon written or electronic notice to Merchant. If PayPal is unable to collect the Annual Prepaid Service Fee from Merchant for each renewal period, then PayPal shall have the right to terminate this Agreement in accordance with the terms herein.
6.2 For Non-Prepaid Agreements. Merchant agrees to pay to PayPal the applicable fees for each separate PayPal account for the Services used by Merchant, as described in these registration pages or as otherwise provided in writing by PayPal concurrent herewith. There will not be any pro-ration of fees paid or invoiced unless otherwise agreed in writing by PayPal. Merchant agrees to pay all value added, sales and other taxes (other than taxes based on PayPal’s income) related to the Services or payments made by Merchant to PayPal. PayPal may, at its option, either invoice or debit Merchant’s credit card or DDR account, as applicable for the fees due PayPal. Initial set up fees will become payable on the Effective Date. Monthly fees will be invoiced or debited at the end of the calendar month in which the Services are performed. Merchant agrees to pay all such invoices immediately or as otherwise indicated on the applicable invoice. Merchant agrees, at the request of PayPal, to provide PayPal with an authorised credit card name, number and date of expiration or an DDR account number.
6.3 Monthly Excess Transaction Fee. Notwithstanding Sections 6.1 and 6.2, in the event Merchant exceeds the Transaction limit permitted for the applicable Services as described in the registration pages (“Excess Transaction”) in any month, Merchant shall be charged a monthly transaction fee (“Monthly Excess Transaction Fee”) to be determined by multiplying each Excess Transaction processed in that month by the corresponding Service’s transaction fee listed in the registration pages.
