TOPAY will attempt to fix processing errors it discovers. If the error resulted in Payee's receipt of fewer funds than he was entitled, TOPAY will credit his Account for the difference, subject to TOPAY receiving the necessary funds and verifying such shortfall. TOPAY will only be able to attempt to correct Transactions that User processes incorrectly if he notifies TOPAY of such an error before transaction getting processed from TOPAY's end. User's failure to notify TOPAY of a processing error forthwith will be deemed a waiver of any right to amounts owed to him.
TOPAY will initiate a Payout of the Payment Amount received on non-business days, on the next business day.
A Chargeback shall mean a Transaction that is uncollectible and returned to Service Provider/ TOPAY by User/ Payee or acquiring bank for a refund to the concerned Payer / User due to any of the following reasons: a) Any payment which the User/ Payer refuses to honour or demands a refund of because the Products or services, purchased or sold or the delivery thereof, was not as promised or was defective, deficiency of service, incomplete and /or unsatisfactory for any reason whatsoever, or that payment for the same has already been made.
b) Any payments by a User/ Payer using the Services, which is returned by the acquiring bank for any reason whatsoever.
c) Any charge/debit arising out of any alleged hacking breach of security or encryption that may be utilized by Service Provider/ TOPAY/ Payee from time to time.
d) Any Transaction that is unsuccessful.
As a result of the rapid nature of movements of funds, once a payment has been initiated through the app, it may not be possible to retract the same. Hence neither the Acquiring Bank nor TOPAY shall be responsible to the User or anyone else for chargeback or refund. The user hereby expressly acknowledges and confirms that TOPAY shall not be liable for the Chargeback.
Any such retraction of payment shall be between User and Payee directly and a chargeback can be considered only if the Payee refunds the amount back. In the event of a Chargeback situation arising in case of any Products or services purchased by a User or Payer, for which payment has not yet been made to the Payee or User, the User or Payer shall be advised by TOPAY to resolve the issue with the Payee or User at the earliest and TOPAY shall then settle the payment in accordance with the solution agreed upon by the Parties once the same is communicated to TOPAY. In any event, Chargeback request may be entertained only if the Payee refunds the amount and hence TOPAY is under no obligation otherwise.
TOPAY shall not be responsible to make payments in respect of any Chargeback unless it has received the requisite amounts from the concerned acquiring bank/ Service Provider/ Payee/ User. In the event of the receipt by TOPAY of an amount of a Chargeback from the acquiring bank / Service Provider, TOPAY shall pass on to User/ Payer such amount received by them within 7 (seven) working days.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
If a User has initiated a Transaction, the user cannot cancel the same once the transaction has been initiated/ processed.
User is solely responsible to add the payee bank account details on the TOPAY Application or Website and the User must ensure that the details entered in respect of the account name, account number, IFSC code, etc are correct. TOPAY shall not be liable to check or validate the account details on behalf of the User. The User acknowledges that in case the User enters incorrect bank details, TOPAY will not be responsible/liable to refund any amount to the User whatsoever. TOPAY, the Service Providers and the Acquiring Banks will not be responsible in case the User initiates a wrong/incorrect transaction. Users shall have very well understood and acknowledge that payments when made into a bank account of the Payee are irreversible as the same falls under the personal jurisdiction of the said person.
The user can raise a dispute/query in respect of a particular Transaction within a period of 3 (three) days after initiation of such Transaction. Any dispute/query raised after 3 days will not be considered valid by TOPAY and TOPAY will not be liable to refund any monies in such scenario.
In case the User claims a refund after the Transaction is settled, the User expressly agrees that such transactions cannot be rolled back and hence covenants to resolve this transaction with the Payee offline and inform TOPAY on such resolution. There shall be NO REFUNDS or REVERSAL of any kind for successfully initiates/processed Transactions.
However, the User shall be fully refunded for any kind of debits on account of technical failure on the website or mobile application. Technical failure in this context refers to a deviation from the established payment process on our website or mobile application without an acknowledgement to the User on the successful remittance of the Transaction. In such a case, the User shall be refunded the entire amount, including the Convenience Fee (if any), without any demur into his account within 7 to 10 working days.
All refunds to customers shall not entail any charge-back of Convenience Fee and related taxes. In case of user violating any T&C of TOPAY, TOPAY reserves the right to hold back any payment which it feels as suspicious or invalid unless completely validated.
If either TOPAY or Service Provider suspects, on reasonable grounds, that a User has committed a breach of these Terms or any other agreement with TOPAY or any act of dishonesty or fraud against TOPAY/ any Service Provider, TOPAY shall be entitled to (a) suspend all payment under these Terms; (b) deactivate/ suspend the User Account and disable your password; and (c) terminate User's access to the TOPAY platform or the Services; pending enquiries by TOPAY.
