  1. Privacy Policy
  2. PayPal
    • Direct debit
      • You can cancel your direct debit authorisation for future transactions at any time by removing the Account from the PayPal system through the “Profile” tab available after logging in at the PayPal website. However, you acknowledge that removing the Account from the PayPal system does not cancel pending transactions that you have already initiated and authorised.
      • You acknowledge that revocation of the direct debit authorisation does not terminate any contract for services that exists between PayPal and you. The Authorisation applies only to the method of payment and does not otherwise have any bearing on the contract for services exchanged.
      • We will give you at least 14 days notice of any changes to the terms of the debit
    • Recurring Payment
      • A Recurring Payment is a payment in which you (as a buyer or a sender of funds) provide an advance authorisation to a third party (such as a merchant or eBay) for a third party initiated payment, that is a charge to your PayPal account or credit or debit card where you do not have a PayPal account (“Nominated Payment Source”) directly on a one-time, regular, or sporadic basis. Recurring Payments are sometimes called “Subscriptions”, “Automatic Payments”, “Preapproved Payments” or “Future Payments”. By providing an advanced authorisation for a third party initiated payment, you are giving the third party the ability to collect or reverse variable payment amounts from your Nominated Payment Source until such time as this arrangement is cancelled.
    • Billing Agreement
      • When you establish a Recurring Payment with a merchant, you are also entering into a Billing Agreement with PayPal. By entering into a Billing Agreement you are authorising PayPal to allow the merchant to charge your Nominated Payment Source directly. PayPal facilitates the transaction between you and the merchant, but does not enforce contractual obligations for payment by you or for delivery of goods or services by the merchant.
      • Automatic Billing
        The Automatic Billing functionality allows you, the merchant, to automatically charge your customers’ Nominated Payment Source on a regular basis in an amount which you and your customer have previously agreed. The payment you receive is called an “Automatic Payment”. If you use Automatic Billing or Recurring Payments, you must follow these requirements:

i. Express Consent. You must receive your customer’s express consent for the amount, frequency, and duration of the Automatic Payment.

ii. Required Cancellation Procedures for Automatic Payments. You must provide the customer with the ability to cancel an Automatic Payment within three working days of the scheduled date of the Automatic Payment. In addition, if the customer signed up for the Automatic Payment through an online method, you must provide a simple and easily accessible online cancellation procedure. If your customer cancels the Automatic Payment, you may not charge for the Automatic Payment.
