If you do not agree to this, then we cannot provide you the Services.

We can terminate this agreement at any time. You can also terminate anytime. Termination is effective immediately. Termination does not alter your liability for processed payments or related chargebacks. This section also includes other terms and conditions. If you are terminating a prepaid services package, or if you are selling your PayRange devices or terminals with a PayRange device installed, an early termination fee may apply.
PayRange Terms of Service
The Terms and Conditions described here constitute a legal agreement (“Agreement”) between the sole proprietor or business organization listed as the “Merchant” on the Service registration page (sometimes referred to as “you,” “your”, “user”) and PayRange, Inc. (referred as “PayRange,” “we”, “our” or “us”).
Section A: The PayRange Service
Our Service helps you accept payments (collectively “Payments”) from your customers who want to pay you for products or services through a stored value account. PayRange is not a bank or a money services business (“MSB”) and PayRange does not offer banking or MSB services as defined by the United States Department of Treasury.
PayRange is a stored value platform. PayRange Stored Value may only be used with the PayRange Services through the PayRange Mobile Application, which services enable the purchase of products, goods and services from unattended automated terminals. An account is funded on a prepaid basis, and able to be reloaded or funded up to $500.00 per loading or funding, but no account shall have the ability to hold more than $999 at any one time. Unused balances are not redeemable by PayRange or the Operator for cash and cannot (except as required by law, and otherwise described in these Terms of Sale and Account) be returned for a cash refund; exchanged; resold; used to purchase Gifts or Gift Certificates; or used to provide Allowances. Unused balances are not transferable. Stored Value, Allowances, Promotional Value, Gifts and Gift Certificates purchased in the United States may be redeemed through the Services only in the United States and its territories. In addition, PayRange does not assume any liability for the products or services purchased using our Service. You will be required to register with PayRange to use the Service (see Registering for PayRange).
We provide the Operator Interface to enable you to use the Service. We reserve the right to require you install or update any and all software updates to continue using the Service. Our Service also includes software to help you monitor recurring and payments for your products and services.
3.1 By accepting this agreement, you authorize us to hold, receive, and disburse funds on your behalf when such funds from sales transactions associated with your Machines when they are completed (settled) in relation to the End Users.
3.2 You further authorize PayRange to instruct its bank on how your settlement funds should be disbursed to you by ACH credit transaction and the timing of such disbursements.
3.3 Settlement funds will be held in a deposit account at PayRange’s bank pending disbursement of the funds to you in accordance with the terms of this contract.
3.4 You agree that you are not entitled to any interest or other compensation associated with the settlement funds held by PayRange’s bank pending settlement to your designated bank settlement account, that you have no right to direct that deposit account, and that you may not assign any interest in the deposit account at PayRange’s bank as, for example, accounts receivable.
3.5 We may periodically make available to you information in the PayRange Operator Interface regarding anticipated settlement amounts credited to your account associated with your Machines when they are completed in relation to the End Users and are being held pending settlement.
3.6 This settlement information does not constitute a deposit or other obligation of PayRange or it’s bank to you.
3.7 This settlement information reflected in the PayRange Operator Interface is for reporting and informational purposes only, and you are not entitled to, and have no ownership or other rights in settlement funds, until such funds are credited to your designated bank settlement account.
3.8 Your authorizations set forth herein will remain in full force and effect until your PayRange Operator Account is closed or terminated.
We will provide you with customer service to resolve any issues relating to your PayRange Operator Account, use of our software, and the distribution of funds to your designated bank settlement account. You, and you alone, are responsible for providing products and services to your customers for any and all issues related to your products and services, and financially liable for issues arising from the malfunction of the Machines and non-delivery of goods and services.
It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the sale of your products and services and/or the payments you receive in connection with your use of the Service (“Taxes”). It is solely your responsibility to assess, collect, report, or remit the correct tax to the proper tax authority. We are not obligated to, nor will we determine whether Taxes apply, or calculate, collect, report, or remit any Taxes to any tax authority arising from any transaction. You acknowledge that we may make certain reports to tax authorities regarding transactions that we process and merchants to which we provide our services.
You acknowledge that we may be required to report to the Internal Revenue Service the total amount of the payments you receive each calendar year if required by law.
6.1 You are fully responsible for the security of data on your website, should you have one, or data you collect that is related to your transactions or otherwise in your possession.
6.2 You agree to comply with all applicable state and federal laws and rules in connection with your collection, security and dissemination of any personal, financial, credit or debit card, or stored value account transaction information (defined as “Data”) on your site.
6.3 Should you accept credit cards apart from The PayRange Services, you agree that at all times you shall be compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) and the Payment Application Data Security Standards (PA-DSS), to the level required from you.
6.4 The steps you will need to take to comply with PCI-DSS and PA-DSS when using PayRange will vary based on your implementation, and may not be applicable at all, for example, if you do not accept credit cards in your Machines.
6.5 For more information about implementing PayRange, please refer to our documentation.
6.6 If we believe it is necessary based on your implementation and request it of you, you will promptly provide us with documentation evidencing your compliance with PCI DSS and/or PA DSS if requested by us.
It is your responsibility to comply with these standards.
You agree to review all Security Controls and choose those that are appropriate for your business to protect against unauthorized transactions and, if necessary, use other procedures and controls not provided by us. Disabling or failing to properly use Security Controls increases your exposure to unauthorized transactions, and in such case, you would be responsible for the use of lost or stolen data that is used to purchase products or services from your business. PayRange will not be liable for losses resulting from use of that lost or stolen data with the Service.
If we believe that a security breach or compromise of data has occurred, we may require you to have a third-party auditor that is approved by us conduct a security audit of your systems and facilities and issue a report to be provided to us, our banking partners, and the Card Networks.
You will be receiving Data in relation to your PayRange Operator Account. You represent to PayRange that you are and will continue to be in compliance with all applicable privacy laws. You further represent that you have obtained all necessary rights and consents under applicable law to disclose to PayRange – or allow PayRange to collect, use, retain, and disclose – any Data that you provide to us or authorize us to collect, including information that we may collect directly from your end users via cookies or other means. As between you and PayRange, PayRange will provide Notification (for example, the form of stickers or window clings) on your PayRange Enabled Machines, as well as messaging to End Users, in some cases, that your Machine is PayRange Enabled. You are responsible for maintaining this disclosure to your customers. PayRange also makes available added marketing materials.
If you receive information about others through the use of the Service, you must keep such information confidential and may only use it in connection with the Service. You may not disclose or distribute any such information to a third party or use any such information for marketing purposes unless you receive the express consent of the user to do so.
You are required to obey all laws, rules, and regulations applicable to your use of the Service (for example, those governing financial services, consumer protections, unfair competition, anti-discrimination, or false advertising). In addition to any other requirements or restrictions set forth in this Agreement, you shall not: (i) utilize the credit available on any stored value account to provide cash advances to cardholders, (ii) submit any Sales transaction for processing that does not arise from your sale of products or services to an End User customer (iii) act as a payment intermediary or aggregator or otherwise resell our services on behalf of any third party, (iv) send what you believe to be potentially fraudulent authorizations or fraudulent Sales transactions.
You further agree not to, nor to permit any third party to, do any of the following: (i) access or attempt to access PayRange systems, programs, or data that are not made available for public use; (ii) copy, reproduce, republish, upload, post, transmit, resell, or distribute in any way material from PayRange; (iii) permit any third party to use and benefit from the Service via a rental, lease, timesharing, service bureau, or other arrangement; (iv) transfer any rights granted to you under this Agreement; (v) work around any of the technical limitations of the Service, use any tool to enable features or functionalities that are otherwise disabled in the Service – or decompile, disassemble, or otherwise reverse engineer the Service – except to the extent that such restriction is expressly prohibited by law; (vi) perform or attempt to perform any actions that would interfere with the normal operation of the Service, prevent access to or use of the Service by our other users, or impose an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; or (vii) otherwise use the Service except as expressly allowed under this section.
We reserve the right to not authorize or settle any transaction you submit which we believe is in violation of this Agreement, any other PayRange agreement, or exposes you, other PayRange users, our processors or PayRange to harm, including but not limited to fraud and other criminal acts. You are hereby granting us authorization to share information with law enforcement about you, your transactions, or your PayRange Operator Account if we reasonably suspect that your use of PayRange has been for an unauthorized, illegal, or criminal purpose.
You agree that PayRange can provide disclosures and notices regarding the Service to you by posting such disclosures and notices on our website, emailing them to the email address listed in your PayRange Operator Account, or mailing them to the address listed in your PayRange Operator Account. You also agree that electronic disclosures and notices have the same meaning and effect as if we had provided you with a paper copy. Such disclosures and notices shall be considered to be received by you within 24 hours of the time it is posted to our website or emailed to you unless we receive notice that the email was not delivered.
You agree that, from the time you begin processing payment with PayRange until you terminate your account with us, we may identify you as a customer of PayRange. Neither you nor we will imply any untrue sponsorship, endorsement or affiliation between you and PayRange.
From time to time we may offer you additional features or services (“Additional Services, which may be subject to additional or different terms of service. As with this Service, you may not use these Additional Services unless you agree to the applicable terms of service. Except where expressly stated otherwise, your use of Additional Services will have no impact on the applicability of this Agreement to the Service.
Section B: Registering for PayRange
The PayRange Service is only made available under this Agreement to persons in the United States that operate a business selling products or services, and the PayRange Service is not made available to persons to accept card payments for personal, family, or household purposes. To use PayRange to receive payments, you will first have to register. When you register for PayRange, we will collect basic information including company name, key contact, title, location, email address, tax identification number, and phone number. If you have not already done so, you will also be required to provide an email address and password for your PayRange Operator Account.
You may choose to register as an individual (sole proprietor) or as a business organization. If you register as a business organization, you must also provide information about an owner or principal of the business and you must be authorized to act on behalf of the business and have the authority to bind the business to this Agreement. To sign up a business to use the Service, you must agree to this Agreement on behalf of the business. If you have so agreed, the term “you” will mean you, the natural person, as well as the business organization that you represent.
As part of your registration, you must provide the name under which you do business, which may also include both the business’s legal name and a DBA. This field will appear in your PayRange statements. To avoid customer confusion and transaction disputes, you must enter a description that clearly identifies your business.
To verify your identity, we will require additional information including your business EIN or Tax ID, and in certain cases, like a sole proprietorship, social security number, and date of birth if applicable. We may also ask for additional information to help verify your identity and assess your business risk including business invoices, a driver’s license or other government issued identification, or a business license. We may ask you for financial statements. We may request for your permission to do a physical inspection at your place of business and to examine books and records that pertain to your compliance with this Agreement. Your failure to comply with any of these requests within five (5) days may result in suspension or termination of your PayRange Operator Account.
After we have collected and verified all your information, PayRange will review your account and determine if you are eligible to use the Service. PayRange may also share your information with our payment processors, each of which may also make a determination regarding your eligibility. Once approved, your account will become live automatically. If the account is complete, PayRange will contact you.
You agree that PayRange is permitted to contact and share information about you and your application (including whether you are approved or declined), and your use of PayRange with the payment processor. This includes sharing information (a) about your transactions for regulatory or compliance purposes, (b) for use in connection with the management and maintenance of the program, (c) to create and update their customer records about you and to assist them in better serving you, and (d) to conduct PayRange’s risk management process.
By registering for PayRange, you confirm that you are either a legal resident of the United States, a United States citizen, or a business entity authorized to conduct business by the state in which you operate. PayRange may only be used to process payment for businesses in the fifty states of the United States of America, the District of Columbia and its territories. You may not export the Service directly or indirectly, and you acknowledge that the Service may be subject to export restrictions imposed by US law, including US Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. Chapter VII).
By accepting this Agreement you confirm that you will satisfy these requirements.
There are certain categories of businesses and business practices for which the PayRange Service cannot be used (“Prohibited Businesses”). Most, although not all, of these Prohibited Business categories are imposed by Card Network rules or the requirements of our banking providers or processors. We maintain a list here: Prohibited Businesses. By registering for PayRange, you confirm that you will not use the Service to accept payments in connection with any of the Prohibited Businesses. If you are uncertain as to whether your business is a Prohibited Business, or have questions about how these requirements apply to you, please contact us.
Section C: Processing Sales Transactions and Receiving Your Funds
As used herein, “Claim” means a challenge to a payment that you or an End User files directly with PayRange. “Reversal” means PayRange reverses the settlement of funds from a processed card transaction that you received because
(a) the settlement funds were sent to you in error by
(b) the sender of the payment did not have authorization to send the payment (for example: the End User used a card that did not belong to the End User),
(c) you received the payment for activities that violated this Agreement or any other PayRange agreement, or
(d) PayRange decided a Claim against you.
You will not impose any fee or surcharge on a customer that seeks to use the PayRange services, and you will maintain appropriate records of all Sales Transactions for a period of at least two (2) years from the date of the transaction.
After each payout of stored value account settlement funds to your Bank Account, we will update information in your PayRange Operator Account to reflect settlement. Information regarding your Sales Transactions processed and settled with the Services (“Transaction History”) will be available to you when you login to our website using your PayRange Operator Account. We provide a minimum of one year of Transaction History on our website or upon request to PayRange. Except as required by law, you are solely responsible for compiling and retaining permanent records of all transactions and other data associated with your PayRange Operator Account, your Transaction History and your use of the Service. PayRange is not responsible for maintaining Transaction History or other records in a manner consistent with your record retention obligations.
Payout schedule refers to the time it takes for us to initiate a transfer to your designated Bank Account of settlement funds arising from Sales Transactions processed through the Service (“Payout Schedule”). Once your Bank Account information has been reviewed, PayRange will initiate transfer of settlement funds (net of Fees, Claims, and other funds owed to us for any reason) in accordance with the Payout Schedule, the terms of which will be made available to you when you log in to your PayRange Operator Interface.
Payouts for your sales transactions are typically sent to your bank weekly, on the Monday immediately following the previous period, from Monday to Sunday. The settlement funds are sent by Automated Clearing House (ACH) and should normally be credited to your Bank Account within 1-3 days of us initiating the payout.
We are not responsible for any action taken by the institution holding your Bank Account that may result in some or all of the funds not being credited to your Bank Account or not being made available to you. You can contact PayRange to inquire about changing the timing of your Payout Schedule. Upon submitting a request, you will be informed of the process and requirements for PayRange to review your Payout Schedule.
We reserve the right to change the Payout Schedule or suspend payouts to your Bank Account should we determine it is necessary due to pending disputes, excessive or anticipated excessive refunds, or other suspicious activity associated with your use of the Service, or if required by law or court order.
Taxes and Reporting. As between you and us, unless we otherwise agree with you in writing or are otherwise required to do so by law, you are solely responsible for the filing of any tax disclosure forms associated with your receipt of funds or payment of funds to any recipient (including, e.g., 1099 forms). You will indemnify and hold PayRange harmless from any fines, penalties, or claims of any kind that result from your failure to do so.
Your Transaction History will be available to you when you log in to the PayRange Operator Interface. Except as required by law, you are responsible for reconciling your Transaction History with your actual sales transactions. PayRange has the right but not the obligation to reconcile your transaction history. Each party agrees to notify the other of any discrepancies arising from such reconciliation and verification. We will investigate any reported or suspected discrepancies and attempt to rectify any errors that you or we discover. In the event you are owed money as a result of the discrepancy, we will transfer funds to your Bank Account in the next scheduled payout. In the event of a payout greater than the reconciliation, PayRange is authorized to net out overpayments until the discrepancy is covered. Any recurring charges or other negative balances may be charged to payment card on file or debited from Operator’s bank account, at the discretion of PayRange. Your failure to notify us of an error or discrepancy in your Transaction History within sixty (60) days of when it first appears on your Transaction History will be deemed a waiver of any right to amounts owed to you in connection with any such error or discrepancy in processing your card payments.
If you submit or cause us to process sales transactions erroneously, you agree to contact us immediately. We will investigate any reported errors and attempt to rectify any errors that you or we discover by crediting or debiting your Bank Account as appropriate.
By accepting these terms of service, you agree that PayRange is responsible for refunding and adjusting for purchases made through the Services, or amounts owed for the services and further agree to submit to PayRange any and all refunds and adjustments for returns of your products and services you receive from End Users that were made through the PayRange Service in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. We require that you will
Full refunds shall be for the exact dollar amount of the original transaction including tax, handling charges, and other applicable charges and fees. The refund amount may not exceed the original sale amount except by an amount equal to any reimbursements to customer for postage costs incurred for product returns. Best efforts will be used to process all refunds within sixty (60) days after the original transaction date, refunds processed after that time may not be capable of being processed.
For processed refunds, PayRange will deduct the refund amount (including any applicable Fees) from settlement funds owed to you from processing of other Sales Transactions. If these funds are not sufficient, you authorize PayRange to initiate an ACH debit entry to your Bank Account in the amount necessary to complete the refund transaction to the cardholder’s card. In the event PayRange cannot access your Bank Account by means of ACH debit, you agree to pay all funds owed to PayRange upon demand. You are solely responsible for accepting and processing returns of your products and services; PayRange has no responsibility or obligation for processing such returns.
If PayRange discovers that the PayRange Services are charging for your goods and services at a rate higher or lower in the corresponding machine, PayRange will notify you of such discrepancy may either wait for instructions from you or immediately adjust the PayRange Application pricing to reflect the actual machine price (please see also Two Tier Pricing and Reconciliation and Errors).
At any point, PayRange, may determine that you are incurring excessive Claims. Excessive Claims may result in additional fees, penalties, or fines. Excessive Claims may also result in
(a) additional controls and restrictions to your use of the PayRange Service
(b) possible suspension or termination of your PayRange Operator Account and access to the Service.
You agree to pay the Fees (“Fees”) assessed by us to you for providing the payment services described in this Agreement. These fees will be calculated pursuant to the terms of your order, incorporated into this Agreement by reference, or according to our current default rate if one is not specified in the order. We reserve the right to revise our Fees at any time, subject to a thirty (30) day notice period to you. You acknowledge that you are also responsible for any penalties or fines imposed on PayRange or directly to you by any Card Network or financial institution as a result of your activities.
PayRange enables you to utilize a two-tier pricing structure with the PayRange Services to offer a discount for the use of cash. The standard PayRange Fee will be applied to and include any two-tier charges. A higher price for PayRange may not be positioned as an additional fee or PayRange two-tier charges. Any two-tier charges may not be more than the two-tier charges for any other cashless payment method on the machine. You may elect to implement a discount for using PayRange, and if so, you may state that it is a discount for using PayRange. If you elect to implement Two-Tier Pricing, the price difference must be expressed clearly at the point of sale so consumers understand there is a lower price for using cash on your vending machine, and that the alternative price is a lower or “discounted” vend price.
“CASH PURCHASES ARE DISCOUNTED $_.__ PER ITEM”
By electing to use two-tiered pricing, you warrant that you have determined there is no prohibition, state, local or other, on such pricing structure, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless PayRange for your implementation of a two-tiered pricing structure. If you fail to comply with the Two-Tier Pricing program feature rules, we reserve the right to suspend to cancel your ability to offer Two-Tier Pricing.
Section D: License, Termination, and Other General Legal Terms
PayRange grants you a personal, limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable license, without the right to sublicense, to electronically access and use the Service solely to accept and receive payments and to manage the funds you so receive in a manner consistent with this Agreement and documentation provided to you.

Class Action Waiver. YOU AND PAYRANGE AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.

Agreement to Arbitrate. You and PayRange each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and PayRange shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND PAYRANGE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER PAYRANGE USERS.
Arbitration Procedure. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s website at www.adr.org.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Oregon, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different PayRange users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same PayRange user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitration will take place in Portland, Oregon.
We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. PayRange will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, PayRange will pay all filling, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. Any request for payment of fees by PayRange should be submitted by mail to the AAA along with your Demand for Arbitration and PayRange will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the AAA. If the value of the relief sought is more than $10,000 and you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, PayRange will pay as much of the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse PayRange for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by PayRange on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA’s rules.
Severability. With the exception of the provisions in the Class Action Waiver subsection of this section, if a court decides that any part of this Disputes section is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this section shall still apply. If a court decides that any of the provisions in the Class Action Waiver is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. The remainder of the User Agreement, including all other provisions of this Section (Disputes with PayRange), will continue to apply.
Opt-Out Procedure. You can choose to reject this Agreement to Arbitrate (“opt out”) by mailing us a written opt-out notice (“Opt-Out Notice”). For new PayRange users, the Opt-Out Notice must be postmarked no later than 30 Days after the date you accept the User Agreement for the first time.

You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate. If you opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate, all other parts of the User Agreement, including all other provisions of this Section (Disputes with PayRange), will continue to apply.
