You authorize STTR to obtain credit reports about you from time to time, to obtain credit authorizations from the issuer of your credit card, and to charge your credit card or debit your bank account for any sums payable by you to STTR.  All payments to you will be remitted to your bank account through a banking network or by other means specified by us.

If we determine that your actions or performance may result in returns, chargebacks, claims, disputes, violations of our terms or policies, or other risks to STTR or third parties, then we may in our sole discretion withhold any payments to you for as long as we determine any related risks to STTR or third parties persist. For any amounts that we determine you owe us, we may (a) charge your credit card or any other payment instrument you provide to us; (b) offset any amounts that are payable by you to us (in reimbursement or otherwise) against any payments we may make to you or amounts we may owe you; (c) invoice you for amounts due to us, in which case you will pay the invoiced amounts upon receipt; (d) reverse any credits to your bank account; or (e) collect payment or reimbursement from you by any other lawful means.

Except as provided otherwise, all amounts contemplated in this agreement will be expressed and displayed in USD currency, and all payments contemplated by this agreement will be made in USD.

In addition, we may require that you pay other amounts to secure the performance of your obligations under this agreement or to mitigate the risk of returns, chargebacks, claims, disputes, violations of our terms or policies, or other risks to STTR or third parties.

SPLO-5 Remittance of Sales Proceeds & Refunds

When you either initially provide or later change your bank account information, the remittance calculation date may be deferred by up to 14 days. If you refund money to a customer in connection with one of your transactions, and the refund is routed through us (or our affiliate), on the next available remittance calculation date we will refund to you the amount of the referral fee paid by you to us attributable to the amount of the customer refund (including refunded taxes only to the extent specified in the applicable tax policies), less the refund administration fee for each of your products refunded that is not an STTR product, which amount we may retain as an administrative fee; provided, however, that in the case of a complete refund of sales proceeds for a media product, we will refund to you the full amount of any variable closing fee paid by you to us (and in the case of a partial refund of sales proceeds for a media product, we will not refund to you any portion of any variable closing fee paid by you to us). We will remit any amounts to be refunded by us pursuant to this subsection from time to time together with the next remittance to be made by us to you. “refund administration fee” means the applicable fee described on the refund administration fee schedule for the applicable STTR site.

PPA-1 Payments Processing Agency Appointment

For non-invoiced orders, you authorize STTR to act as your agent for purposes of processing payments, refunds and adjustments for your transactions, receiving and holding sales proceeds on your behalf, remitting sales proceeds to your bank account, charging your credit card, and paying STTR and its affiliates amounts you owe in accordance with this agreement or other agreements you may have with STTR affiliates. For invoiced orders, you authorize: (a) STTR capital services, inc. To act as your agent for purposes of processing payments, refunds and adjustments for your transactions, and receiving and holding sales proceeds on your behalf; and (b) STTR to act as your agent for purposes of remitting sales proceeds to your bank account, charging your credit card, and paying STTR and its affiliates amounts you owe in accordance with this agreement or other agreements you may have with STTR affiliates. STTR payments, inc., STTR capital services, inc., and STTR services are each an “STTR payments agent”. The applicable STTR payments agents provide the services described in these transaction processing service terms and the related services described in sections SPLO-1.4, SPLO-2.2, SPLO-5, and ffs-8.3 of the agreement (collectively, the “transaction processing services”).

When a buyer instructs us to pay you, you agree that the buyer authorizes and orders us to commit the buyer’s payment (less any applicable fees or other amounts we may collect under this agreement) to you. You agree that buyers satisfy their obligations to you for your transactions when we receive the sales proceeds. We will remit funds to you in accordance with this agreement.

PPA-2 Remittance

Subject to Section 2 of the general terms of this agreement, the applicable STTR payments agents will remit funds to you in accordance with Section SPLO-5 of the agreement and these transaction processing service terms. Each applicable STTR payments agent’s obligation to remit funds collected or received by it or otherwise credited to your available balance in connection with your transactions is limited to funds in your available balance that have become available in accordance with this agreement less amounts owed to STTR and any taxes that STTR automatically calculates, collects and remits to a tax authority according to applicable law, as specified in the tax policies, subject to chargeback or reversal or withheld for anticipated claims in accordance with this agreement. Without limiting STTR’s rights to collect any amounts you owe, the applicable STTR payments agent’s receipt of sales proceeds or crediting of sales proceeds to your available balance discharges your obligation to pay applicable fees and other amounts under this agreement to the extent the sales proceeds received or credited equal or exceed the fees and other amounts you owe and the sales proceeds are applied to the payment of those fees and amounts.

PPA-3 Your Funds

Your sales proceeds will be held in an account with the applicable STTR payments agent (a “seller account”) and will represent an unsecured claim against that STTR payments agent. Your sales proceeds are not insured by the federal deposit insurance corporation, nor do you have any right or entitlement to collect sales proceeds directly from any customer. Prior to disbursing funds to you, an STTR payments agent may combine sales proceeds held with the funds of other users of the services, invest them, or use them for other purposes permitted by applicable laws. You will not receive interest or any other earnings on any sale proceeds. To the extent required by applicable laws, an STTR payments agent will not use any funds held on your behalf for its corporate purposes, will not voluntarily make such funds available to its creditors in the event of bankruptcy or for any other purpose, and will not knowingly permit its creditors to attach such funds.

PPA-4 Verification

We may at any time require you to provide any financial, business or personal information we request to verify your identity. You authorize us to obtain from time-to-time consumer credit reports to establish or update your seller account or in the event of a dispute relating to this agreement or the activity under your seller account. You agree to update all seller account information promptly upon any change. The STTR payments privacy notice applies to transactions processed by STTR payments, inc.

PPA-5 Dormant Accounts

If there is no activity (as determined by us) in connection with your seller account for the period of time set forth in applicable unclaimed property laws and we hold sales proceeds on your behalf, we will notify you by means designated by us and provide you the option of keeping your seller account open and maintaining the sales proceeds in your seller account. If you do not respond to our notice(s) within the time period we specify, we will send the sales proceeds in your seller account to your state of residency, as determined by us based on the information in your seller account. If we are unable to determine your state of residency or your seller account is associated with a foreign country, your funds may be sent to the state of Delaware.
