2. About Us

Our App and our Site are operated by SmartTrade App Ltd ("We" or “SmartTrade”).

We are registered in England and Wales under company number 6205886

Our registered office at First Floor, 10-16 Scruton Street, London, EC2A 4RU, United Kingdom.

3. The SmartTrade App Service

We agree to provide you with a service supported by software via our App and our Site to allow you to permit us to communicate your customers’ debit and credit card details to Payment Providers in order for those Payment Providers to provide a payment service to you under their own terms of business (the “Payment Service”), and to manage information in relation to those payments by having the facility to: generate quotes and statements, customise quotes, invoices and instant receipts and export your payment information into Excel for accounting purposes (the “SmartTrade Accounts Management Service”). More details of the SmartTrade Accounts Management Service may from time to time be published on our Site. In these Terms and Conditions, the Payment Service and the Smart Trade Accounts Management Service are together referred to as “the Services”. Prior to being able to use the Services, the details you provide to us upon registration will be checked and verified by Payment Providers, with whom you must also have a separate agreement. For further information on this verification process, please see your agreement with the relevant Payment Providers. We will notify you once your registration has been either approved or deemed ineligible by the relevant Payment Provider(s) for use of the Payment Service.

Either we or the Payment Provider will provide you with the relevant Payment Providers’ terms of business which will govern the terms of the Payment Service: please note that we facilitate the provision of information between you and Payment Providers to assist your management of the Payment Service but we do not provide the Payment Service ourselves and your contract for the Payment Service is directly between you and the relevant Payment Provider on the Payment Provider’s terms of business.

All references in these Terms and Conditions to the Payment Service and to actions which Payment Providers will take assume that the relevant Payment Provider has agreed to provide the Payment Terms to you: this will be subject to their verification of the information you provide to us and to other conditions of their terms of business from time to time. We do not guarantee, even if you have paid fees for the SmartTrade Accounts Management Service, that a Payment Provider will agree to or will continue to provide you with the Payment Service. Your rights to terminate the Services are set out at the section headed Termination below.

Subject to successful registration with SmartTrade and approval by a Payment Provider, the App and Site may be used in accordance with these Terms and Conditions to receive access to the Payment Service provided by Payment Providers for unlimited payment transactions in return for the per-payment fees and custom rates (for payments in any calendar month having an aggregate value in excess of £20,000 or such other amount as may be specified) specified on the Site. Please note that Payment Providers may vary their charges from time to time in accordance with their own terms of business.

Access to the SmartTrade Accounts Management Service (via either our Subscription packages) is subject to payment in arrears of our then current monthly fee or payment in advance of our then current annual fee, each as specified on the Site. Monthly fees must be paid during the month for which the SmartTrade Accounts Management Service is being provided, no later than the last working day of that month. The annual fee must be paid upon registering for the SmartTrade Accounts Management Service for twelve (12) months on our App or Site. Please note that we may increase our fees for the SmartTrade Account Management Service from time to time by giving you not less than 30 days’ notice by email or via the App or Site. Your rights to terminate if you do not wish to accept any such increase are set out at the section headed Termination below.

The Payment Providers pay you for your transactions minus their fees into your designated bank account, typically within 7 working days for card transactions.

A certain amount of your funds may be subject to an additional hold period by the Payment Providers with terms determined by your perceived risk and transaction history. Please consult your agreement with the Payment Providers for further information on their payment terms.

You are responsible for refunds, returns, and liable for customer disputes. Please see “Your Liability” below for further information.

If our third party underlying card acquiring or banking transaction handling fee costs change we have the right to increase our transaction fee and/or subscription charge to cover these additional costs. In the event that we add additional features to any of our Subscription Packages (including within Promotions) we retain the right to charge for these new additional services.

Due to increased processing charges from our underlying card acquirer you will be subject to a 1.50% additional surcharge when charging any customer credit- or debit cards originating from outside the European Union. The surcharge will be added to your transaction rate at the time of the transaction.

Whilst we aim to provide uninterrupted Services, unfortunately we cannot guarantee this. We will use reasonable endeavours to minimise any disruption to the Services (for example, by endeavouring to limit App and Site maintenance activities to non-business hours) and wherever reasonably possible, we will provide advance warning on our Site and App of any known or planned interruptions. Interruptions may also be caused by factors beyond our reasonable control. If circumstances happen that are beyond our reasonable control, we will not be liable for any failure to perform our obligations under these Terms and Conditions because of those circumstances, and we will be excused from that failure for so long as those circumstances continue. Interruptions caused by factors outside our control may include, but are not limited to, failure of our telecommunications or internet service provider, or actions or omissions of Payment Providers.

You shall provide us with accurate information when registering to use our App and/or our Site, including that you are over 18 years old or the legal minimum age in the jurisdiction from which you are accessing our App and/or Site, whichever is the higher.

Note that if you are paying monthly fees you will not receive a refund for the month in which the agreement terminates. If you have paid an annual fee, any refund in these circumstances will be at our sole discretion.
