- Paya can only accept your payment for services provided by registered traders. You must have the trader’s Paya Account ID number.
- You may pay by Visa, MasterCard, Visa Debit, American Express, or Maestro cards.
- Your payment represents confirmation to Us that the services have been provided by the Trader, that they have been provided to a satisfactory standard to You and that the nature of the services provided are in accordance with the Trader service description.
- Paya reserves the right to choose not to accept your payment for any reason, at its discretion, and will not be liable to You or anyone else in those circumstances.
- Upon payment online, Paya will confirm authorisation of your payment by an acknowledgement displayed on-screen, followed by an e-mail which will be sent to the e-mail address You provide with your payment details.
- You will have an opportunity to check and correct any online input errors in your payment up until the point at which You submit your payment by clicking the “confirm payment” button on the payment page.
- By using a credit or debit card to make a payment, You confirm that the card being used is yours. All credit and debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment we will not accept your payment and we will not be liable for any payment delay or consequences of overdue payment and we are not obliged to inform You of the reason for the refusal. We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging You as a result of our processing of your credit or debit card payment in accordance with your payment request.
- Paya shall provide the payment services to you in an efficient and effective manner and to the best of our abilities using due skill, care and attention.
Your right to claim a refund
- Registering provides additional protection for You to claim a refund. Before contacting your card issuer or claiming a refund from Paya, you should contact the Trader to resolve your issue. You may claim a refund of your payment for the services provided by the Trader (or any part of it), by notifying us of the valid reason for the claim within 5 days of the transaction date. Paya shall discuss your refund request with the Trader to secure a refund. You may pursue a claim for a refund via Paya or you may contact your credit card company or card issuer and pursue your chargeback rights. You may not pursue both at the same time or seek a double recovery.
- Paya may repair, replace or offer a full refund for faulty or defective services supplied to You for which we are responsible in accordance with your legal rights. In the event that You consider the services provided to be satisfactory at the time of payment but subsequently establish the services provided to be unsatisfactory, You must notify Us within 5 days of the transaction.
- We are responsible for securing your personal data, including credit and debit card data, which is solely in our possession and under our control. We comply with PCI DSS, which sets out the industry standards for maintaining a secure environment. Paya understands that You may have concerns about security on the internet. Our website uses a secure server that implements secure sockets layer (SSL) technology in our online payment process to protect your payment card information. Paya payment processes shall make security checks on the card data to verify that it is being used by the authorised account holder. We make use of Verified By Visa, Mastercard Securecode and Amex Safekey security processes for your protection.
- We recommend that You do not communicate your payment card details to anyone, including Us, by e-mail. We cannot be responsible for any losses You may incur in transmitting non-secure information to Us by internet link or by e-mail. Any such loss shall not be borne either wholly or partly by Us, and shall be entirely your responsibility.
- If You have any additional queries about security, please email email@example.com.
