Access to certain Bill Payment Services in certain jurisdictions may be reserved to Customers with verified accounts (Level 3 and 4).

Please note that, unless otherwise mentioned in the specific bill payment service you are accessing, payment of bills is not immediate and may take some time to confirm.

The Bill Payment Services are provided to Customers by partners authorized to conduct those activities in the respective jurisdiction, as described below.

 

2. The payment

The Products can be purchased by the Customer either (i) directly with a cryptocurrency, (ii) via a third-party payment provider, in either fiat or cryptocurrency or (iii) via a Paymybill gift card (“Balance Card”) or balance (“Balance”).

Payment with crypto

Customers may choose to pay directly with one of the cryptocurrencies accepted at the time of purchase by Paymybill or by using a third-party crypto payment service that is available at the check-out. These payments may be subject to fees and confirmation time, as stated in Paymybill or in the terms and conditions of such third-party providers.

Payment with fiat

Customers may also choose to pay using their Bank transfer,UPI,Mastercard or Visa payment card. Such payments are processed by a third-party provider, identified on the payment page, whose terms and conditions apply. Paymybill does not have access to your payment details, which are inserted by you directly into the secure payment gateway of the third-party provider.

Any questions related to the Paymybill Balance Card or the Paymybill Balances shall be sent to [email protected].

 

3. Customer levels.

Customers can shop at Paymybill as Customers of four different levels:

  2. Customers with basic accounts, by registering and verifying an email address with Paymybill.

Only Customers with verified accounts (levels 3 and 4) are eligible for certain Products.

Account levels impact purchasing thresholds and access to certain Products.

Level 3 verification can be done in your account settings. Level 4 verification can be started by emailing us at [email protected].

 

4. Availability of Third-Party Services.

The proper functioning of Paymybill depends on its interaction with several third-party providers.

Transactions may, from time to time, fail due to technical or other reasons. Customers therefore acknowledge that we may not be liable for a technical issue that may affect their transaction. Whenever a transaction fails due to technical reasons, a Customer may qualify for a refund. Please see the "Refunds" section below to know more.

 

5. Limitations of use.

We implement certain purchasing thresholds in accordance with our Anti-Money Laundering Policy, depending on the level of account of the Customer. All limits are presented in USD but apply to the equivalent amount in other currencies. Different limits can be implemented on a product by product, or customer by customer, basis, at the request of Product Issuers or discretionarily by us.

Any Customer using more than one Paymybill account, or any other expedient, in order to circumvent the limits below, is in breach of these Terms and can have its account, or accounts, suspended until customer due diligence is successfully completed.

To the extent necessary under applicable laws and regulations or our internal policies, such illegal circumvention of the use limitations may be reported to the relevant authorities, whenever it reveals, in our sole understanding, signs of suspicious activity.

 

6. Refunds.

As explained above in “Availability of Third-Party Services”, the purchase of Products through Paymybill depends on the proper functioning of third-party systems.

Therefore, from time to time, the failure of such systems may cause a transaction to fail, meaning:

  • The Customer did not receive the Product;

  • The Product was received, but cannot be redeemed on account of it having been previously redeemed; or

  • The Product was received, but cannot be redeemed on account of it not being valid.

In case the Customer does not receive the Product after having paid and appropriate diligences are made by us to provide for the delivery of the Product or understand the cause of the delay, the Customer may request for a refund.

In case the Product was received but cannot be redeemed, the Customer shall inform us. We will then start appropriate diligences with the relevant third-party providers in order to correct the issue. Should the third-party provider fail to correct the issue and agrees to refund us, we will then refund the Customer.

Please note that due to the nature of the Products, the Customer does not have a cooling-off period of any kind after acquiring an unsealed Product or after unsealing a sealed Product. Once a Product is unsealed, no refunds or reimbursements will be offered unless in the cases where the product delivered is invalid or had already been redeemed prior to delivery.

In case of technical error causing the Product not to be delivered to the Customer, we will refund the Customer in full by crediting its Paymybill Balance or with a return transaction in the same cryptocurrency.

In case of overpayment, a Customer may also request a refund in the amount paid in excess, deducted from any transaction fees.

In case of underpayment, a Customer may (i) pay the outstanding amount and receive the Product, (ii) ask for a refund in the same cryptocurrency to the same wallet, deducted from any transactions fees or (iii) ask for a refund in their Paymybill Balance.

Refunds must be requested within 30 days from the date of the transaction. After 30 days, the decision to issue a refund or not is made at the sole discretion of Paymybill.

Please note that we do not, in any event, refund any transaction fees paid by the Customer that are specific to the payment option selected by the Customer.

We reserve the right to refuse refunds when the costs of refunding exceed the amount to be refunded. The amount of time required to process any refunds request will vary and may take some time.

We also reserve the right to ask you for further information before issuing refunds.

For the purposes of requesting a refund or any further information, the Customer shall contact [email protected] or use the chat available at Paymybill.

 

7. Paymybill Rewards

The Paymybill Rewards program is a rewards program aimed at rewarding Customers for their loyalty to Paymybill.

Whenever a Customer makes a Qualified Purchase, the Customer will be awarded the equivalent to a percentage of the amount of the Qualified Purchase in Global Bitcoin (the “Reward”), that will be deposited in the Customer’s Paymybill Rewards account.

A “Qualified Purchase” is a purchase made by a Customer with an account, by any means of payment accepted by Paymybill (except payment with the balance of the Customer’s Paymybill Rewards account), of a Product that is not an Excluded Product.

Excluded Products” means any Thor products, Paymybill Balance Cards, and any other Products that Paymybill, from time to time, chooses to exclude.

The amount of the Rewards may vary from product to product and Paymybill retains the right to establish and subsequently increase, decrease or eliminate the reward given for any Product, as well as to suspend or terminate the program at any time, for a particular Customer or for all Customers.

The Reward amounts earned by a Customer cannot be withdrawn, transferred or assigned, and can be used exclusively to purchase Products at Paymybill

 

8. Responsibility of the Customer.

The Customer is fully liable for any mistakes, losses or damages (against himself, us, or any third-party) arising from (i) the provision of incorrect, inaccurate or fake information and from (ii) the acquisition, resale, use or other related activities of the Product, in a manner that infringes any applicable laws, regulations, contractual terms and conditions or other agreements.

For the avoidance of doubt, when the Product being purchased is a refill of a prepaid SIM card (or any other Product that is redeemed by the Customer through Bitrefill), the Customer is solely responsible for the accuracy and correctness of the information inserted on the platform (including, but not limited to, the phone number, the country, the network operator and the amount of the top-up) and we shall not be liable, in any case, for any consequences arising from the inaccuracy of the elements provided by the Customer.

9. Unlawful use.
