You acknowledge that Ewallet Direct offers an electronic payment Service and is not a bank. Our Service facilitates a display of your electronic transactions.

By initiating and sending payments through the Service or adding funds to your balance, you appoint Ewallet Direct as your agent to obtain the funds on your behalf and transfer them to the designated receiver. When a payment is made, Ewallet Direct processes the funds on your behalf through the banks or institutions that hold your funds.

When you receive funds through the Service, Ewallet Direct processes the funds on your behalf through the banks or financial institutions that hold your funds. Funds received in your account are held in pooled bank or financial institution accounts.

Ewallet Direct is an electronic payment processor that hosts, creates, maintains and provides the Service to you online. We do not have any control over or cannot ensure that inter transfers between other Ewallet Direct Users will complete their transaction as we are not a party to any transaction between Users. Instead, each Ewallet Direct User agrees to use the Service of their own accord. Furthermore, Ewallet Direct reserves the right to correct any Errors that may occur.

6.0 Account Activity

6.1 Adding Funds to Your Account

You can add funds (‘Cash In') to your Ewallet Direct account by bank wire transfer, according to the Ewallet Direct services available in your country. Once you have funded your Ewallet Direct account, you can use the Ewallet Direct services.

If you have any questions regarding an "Add Funds" / "Cash In" transaction, contact Ewallet Direct Customer Support. DO NOT CONTACT Ewallet Direct's banking partners because they will not be able to help you with any transactions since they do not have access to any of your account information or Ewallet Direct system platform. If you do contact our banking partners, fines will be applied to your Ewallet Direct account.

IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN TO DEPOSIT CASH to your Ewallet Direct account and will result in immediate account termination. This is for PCMLTFA compliance reasons. For security and compliance reasons, Ewallet Direct does not allow third parties to add funds to Ewallet Direct accounts. If funds are added from a bank account that does not list your name or your company as the primary holder, the transaction will be subjected to an additional security review and administrative fee.

6.2 Set-off of Past Due Amounts

If you have a past due amount owed to us or a Ewallet Direct affiliate, subsidiary, or parent company, we may debit your Account to pay any amounts that are more than 90 Days past due.

6.3 Negative Balances and Multiple Currencies

If your Account has a negative balance, we may set-off the negative balance with any funds that you subsequently add or receive into your Account. If you have multiple currency balances in your Account and one of the currency balances becomes negative for any reason, we may set-off the negative balance by using funds you maintain in a different currency balance.

6.4 Withdrawing Funds

You can withdraw funds ("Cash Out") from your Ewallet Direct account by bank wire transfer, according to the Ewallet Direct services available in your country. You may withdraw funds from your Account in any of these methods:

(a) by electronically transferring funds to Accounts held by other Ewallet Direct Users; or 
(b) by electronically transferring funds to your personal bank account that is not your Ewallet Direct Account.
If you have any questions regarding a "Withdraw Funds" / "Cash Out" transaction, contact Ewallet Direct Customer Support. DO NOT CONTACT Ewallet Direct's banking partners because they will not be able to help you with any transactions since they do not have access to any of your account information or to the Ewallet Direct system platform. If you do contact our banking partners, administrative fees may be applied to your Ewallet Direct account.

For security and compliance reasons, if funds are transferred to a bank account that does not list your name or your company as the primary holder, the transaction will be subjected to an additional security review and administrative fee.

You may close your Account at any time. Upon Account closure, we will cancel any pending transactions and you will forfeit any balances associated with Redemption Codes, unless otherwise legally prohibited. You must withdraw your balance prior to closing your Account.

6.6 Limitations on Closing Your Account

You may not evade an investigation by closing your Account. If you close your Account while we are conducting an investigation, we may hold your funds to protect Ewallet Direct, subsidiaries and affiliates or a third party against the risk of Reversals, Claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liability. You will remain liable for all obligations related to your Account even after the Account is closed.

6.7 Account Balances

You are not required to carry a balance in your e-wallet. You may load funds at any time. However, if your account has a negative balance, you agree to load funds into your account forthwith to cover the negative balance. If you do not, we reserve the right to recover the funds by any means necessary, including the involvement of a collection agency or law enforcement agency. If you do hold a balance in your e-wallet, at all times, your funds will be held separately from those of our corporation and will not be incorporated into or used for Ewallet Direct's operating expenses or corporate purposes.

You further understand that you will not receive interest or other earnings on the funds that Ewallet Direct processes on your behalf through pooled bank or financial institution accounts. In consideration for your use of the Service, you irrevocably transfer and assign to Ewallet Direct any ownership right that you may have in any interest that may accrue on funds held in pooled bank or financial institution accounts. This assignment applies only to interest earned on your funds, and nothing in this Agreement grants Ewallet Direct any ownership right to the principal of the funds. In addition to or instead of earning interest on pooled bank or financial institution accounts, Ewallet Direct may receive a reduction in fees or expenses charged to it by banking services by the banks or institutions that hold your funds.

7.0 Errors and Unauthorized Transactions

7.1 Protection for Unauthorized Transactions and Errors

When an Unauthorized Transaction or an Error occurs in your Account, we will cover you for the full amount of every eligible Unauthorized Transaction or Error so long as you follow the procedures discussed below.
An "Unauthorized Transaction" occurs when a payment is sent from your Account that you did not authorize and that did not benefit you. For example, if someone steals your password, uses the password to access your Account, and sends a payment from your Account, an Unauthorized Transaction has occurred. If you give someone access to your Account (by giving them your login information) and they conduct transactions without your knowledge or permission, you are responsible for any resulting use and loss.

7.2 Notification Requirements

You agree to immediately notify us if you believe that any of the following have occurred:

        • there has been an Unauthorized Transaction or unauthorized access to your Account;
        • there is an Error in your Account history statement
        • your password has been compromised; or
        • you need more information about a transaction listed on the statement or transaction confirmation.

You acknowledge that to be eligible for protection for Unauthorized Transactions, you must notify us within ten (10) Days after any Unauthorized Transaction first appears in your Account history statement. Failure to notify us within that time shall be deemed a waiver of any claim for an Unauthorized Transaction.

You agree to regularly log into your Account and review your Account history statement to ensure that there has not been an Unauthorized Transaction or Error. We will also send an email to the primary email address you have provided in order to notify you of each transaction from your Account. You should also review these transaction confirmations to ensure that each transaction was authorized and is accurate.

7.3 Content of Notice

When you notify us, provide us with all of the following information:

  • Your name and email address registered to your Account;
  • A description of any suspected Unauthorized Transaction or Error and an explanation as to why you believe it is incorrect or why you need more information to identify the transaction; and
  • The amount of any suspected Unauthorized Transaction or Error.

If you notify us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) Business Days. During the course of our investigation, we may request additional information from you.

7.4 Response to Your Notification

Once you notify us of any suspected Unauthorized Transaction or Error, or we otherwise learn of one, we will do the following:

  • We will conduct an investigation to determine whether there has been an Unauthorized Transaction or Error that is eligible for protection.
  • We will complete our investigation within ten (10) Business Days of the date we received your notification of the suspected Unauthorized Transactions or Error. If your Account is new (i.e., the first transaction from your Account was less than 30 Business Days from the date you notify us), we may take up to 20 Business Days to complete this investigation. If we need more time, we may take up to 45 Days to complete our investigation (or up to 90 Days for new Accounts).
  • We will inform you of our decision within 3 Business Days after completing our investigation. If we determine that there was an Unauthorized Transaction or Error, we will promptly credit the full amount into your Account within 3 Business Day of our determination. If we decide that there was not an Unauthorized Transaction or Error, we will include an explanation of our decision in our email to you.

7.5 Errors by You

If you erroneously send a payment to the wrong party, or send a payment for the wrong amount (based on a typographical error, for example), your only recourse will be to contact the party to whom you sent the payment and ask them to refund the payment. We will not reimburse you or reverse a payment that you have made in error.

The actions we may take include but are not limited to the following:

  • We may close, suspend, or limit your access to your Account or the Ewallet Direct Services;
  • We may refuse to provide the Ewallet Direct Services to you permanently both now and in the future; and
  • We may hold your funds for a period of time reasonably needed to protect against the risk of liability to Ewallet Direct or a third party, or if we believe that you may be engaging in potentially fraudulent or suspicious activity and/or transactions.

10.3 Risk-Based Holds

We may, in our sole discretion, place a hold on any or all of the payments you receive when we believe there may be a high level of risk associated with you, your Account, or any or all of your transactions. Our determination may be based on different factors and we may rely on information it receives from third parties. If we place a hold on a payment, the funds will appear in your "pending balance" and the payment status will indicate the hold. If we place a hold on any or all of the payments you receive, we will provide you with notice of our actions. We will release the hold on any payment after 30 Days from the date the payment was received into your Account unless we have a reason to continue to hold the payment such as (a) the receipt of a Dispute, Claim, or Reversal, (b) we believe that you have violated the terms of this Agreement or any other Policy and that such a violation results in the need to continue holding the funds, or (c) we believe that you may be engaging in potentially fraudulent or suspicious activity and/or transactions. In such an event, we may continue holding the payment in your Account until the matter is resolved pursuant to this Agreement. In our sole discretion, we may release the hold earlier under certain circumstances, for example when you upload tracking information of the item you shipped.

10.4 Disputed Transaction Holds.

If a User files a Dispute, Claim, or Reversal on a payment you received, we may place a temporary hold on the funds in your Account to cover the amount of the liability. If you win the dispute or the transaction is eligible, we will lift the temporary hold. If you lose the dispute, we will remove the funds from your Account.

10.5 Reserves

We may, in our sole discretion, place a Reserve on funds held in your Account when we believe there may be a high level of risk associated with your Account. If we place a Reserve in your Account, transactions will be shown as "pending" in your Ewallet Direct balance, and you will not have access to funds in a "pending" status until they are cleared. If your Account is subject to a Reserve, we will provide you with notice specifying the terms of the Reserve. The terms may require that a certain percentage of the amounts received into your Account are held for a certain period of time, or that a certain amount of money is held in Reserve, or anything else that we determine is necessary to protect against the risk associated with your Account. We may change the terms of the Reserve at any time by providing you with notice of the new terms.

11.1 Governing Law.

The terms and conditions of this Agreement will be construed in accordance with Canadian law and will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Canadian courts.

If we are served garnishments, summonses, subpoenas, orders or legal processes of any type, we are entitled to rely on the representations therein and may comply with them in our own discretion without regard to jurisdiction. 

11.2 Arbitration and Waiver of Jury Trial

    NOTE: PLEASE READ THIS PROVISION OF THE AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. BY USING THE SERVICES A PROVIDED HEREIN, YOU AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. ARBITRATION REPLACES THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL, TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY (EXCEPT AS MAY BE PROVIDED FOR IN THE ARBITRATION RULES), AND TO PARTICIPATE AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF ANY CLASS OF CLAIMANTS OR IN ANY CONSOLIDATED ARBITRATION PROCEEDING OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.

           You and we agree that any Dispute (defined above) will be resolved by Arbitration.

11.3 Procedure for Demanding Arbitration.

 If a Dispute arises, the party asserting the claim or demand must initiate arbitration, provided you or we may first try to resolve the matter informally or through customary business methods, including collection activity. The party filing an arbitration complaint must choose an arbitration firm that is mutually agreed upon for initiating and pursuing arbitration.  If the parties mutually agree, a private party, such as a retired judge, may serve as the arbitrator. If you claim you have a Dispute with us, but do not initiate arbitration or select an arbitrator, we may do so. You may obtain copies of the current rules of each of the arbitration firms and forms and instructions for initiating arbitration by contacting them.

 In the event an arbitration firm was unavailable to decide a Dispute, the parties agree to select another neutral party experienced in financial matters to decide the Dispute.  If such an independent arbitrator cannot be found, the parties agree to submit any Dispute to a provincial or federal judge, sitting without a jury, for resolution on an individual and not a class-wide basis.

The policies and procedures of the selected arbitration firm will apply provided such policies and procedures are consistent with this arbitration agreement. To the extent the arbitration firm's rules or procedures are different than the terms of this arbitration agreement, the terms of this arbitration agreement will apply.

11.4 Costs of Arbitration.

No matter which party initiates the arbitration, we will advance or reimburse filing fees and other costs or fees of arbitration, provided each party will be initially responsible for its own attorneys' fees and related costs. Unless prohibited by law, the arbitrator may award fees, costs, and reasonable attorneys' fees to the party who substantially prevails in the arbitration.

11.5 Location for Arbitration.
 Unless you and we agree to a different location, the arbitration will be conducted in British Columbia Canada.

11.6 Waiver of Rights

You are waiving your right to a jury trial, to have a court decide your Dispute, to participate in a class action lawsuit, and to certain discovery and other procedures that are available in a lawsuit. You and we agree that the arbitrator has no authority to conduct class-wide arbitration proceedings and is only authorized to resolve the individual Disputes between you and us. The validity, effect, and enforceability of this waiver of class action lawsuit and class-wide arbitration, if challenged, are to be determined solely by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by the arbitrator. If such court refuses to enforce the waiver of class-wide arbitration, the Dispute will proceed in court and be decided by a judge, sitting without a jury, according to applicable court rules and procedures, and not as a class action lawsuit. The arbitrator has the ability to award all remedies available by statute, at law, or in equity to the prevailing party.

11.7 Applicable Law and Review of Arbitrator's Award.

The arbitrator shall apply applicable federal and Provincial Law substantive law and the terms of this Agreement. The arbitrator must apply the terms of this arbitration agreement, including without limitation the waiver of class-wide arbitration. The arbitrator shall make written findings and the arbitrator's award may be filed with any court having jurisdiction. The arbitration award shall be supported by substantial evidence and must be consistent with this Agreement and with applicable law, and if it is not, it may be set aside by a court. The parties shall have, in addition to the grounds referred to in the Federal Arbitration Act for vacating, modifying, or correcting an award, the right to judicial review of (a) whether the findings of fact rendered by the arbitrator are supported by substantial evidence and (b) whether the conclusions of law are erroneous under the substantive Provincial law of and applicable federal law. Judgment confirming an award in such a proceeding may be entered only if a court determines that the award is supported by substantial evidence and is not based on legal error under the substantive Provincial law and applicable federal law.

11.8 Survival.

This arbitration provision shall survive: (1) cancellation, payment, charge-off, or assignment of this Agreement; (2) the bankruptcy of any party; and (3) any transfer, sale, or assignment of this Agreement, or any amounts owed under this Agreement, to any other person or entity.

This includes compliance with OFAC (Office of Foreign Asset Control) requirements, United Nations (UN) global sanctions reports and government watch-lists and rigorous screening processes. At any time, due to a requirement to satisfy any of the above verification methods, a client, business entity or any of the business entity owners or affiliates may be asked a specific document or piece of information to confirm their identity or provide additional information regarding any transaction, operations or even business dealings with certain individuals, institutions and dealings in geographical locations.

Should a situation arise where the nature of the business, geographical specific regulations or account activity fall in the scope of non-compliance in any applicable law or regulation, Ewallet Direct will inform the client, business unit or any of the business owners or affiliates of the event and occurrence(s). For any such instances, pre-verification and enhanced due diligence will be required prior to regaining active account status. In cases, where compliance is not achieved pursuing remediation measures, Ewallet Direct will see fit to terminate the account and may report the event to the applicable law enforcement and regulatory authorities.
