We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that when You make the Lodgement, these funds are held in a secure account segregated from Our, Our Subsidiaries, Our affiliates, or any third-party funds, however this protection may not be available to Us in every jurisdiction. We undertake that, to the extent permitted by law, We will ensure that no lien may be placed on the funds in the Nominated Accounts.

There are four discreet steps involved in the completion of a Payment Transaction.
These are set out at Clauses 6 to 9:
6. PLACING AN ORDER
6.1. To conclude a Payment Transaction in a Supported Currency Pair, You must first place an Order by:
6.1.1. using the means set out at Clause 6.2 to request Us to:
126.96.36.199. purchase a specified amount of foreign currency for You; or
188.8.131.52. pay funds to a Beneficiary in Your local currency; and
6.1.2. providing Us with:
184.108.40.206. Your nominated Funding Account, including names, numbers and particulars of the account holders or where it is to be directly funded from Your Global Account, where applicable, then confirmation of same;
220.127.116.11. the amount to be transferred and the currency in which the Payment Transaction is to be effected;
18.104.22.168. full Beneficiary details where We do not already have these on the Account, though in certain circumstances this can be provided after the Order is placed;
22.214.171.124. the purpose for making the Payment Transaction;
126.96.36.199. the applicable method You wish to be used for the Final Transfer (the “Payment Rail”), and confirmation of Your acceptance of the costs and fees associated with that Payment Rail;
188.8.131.52. the date on which You want Us to make the Future Dated Payment (if this facility is available); and
184.108.40.206. such other information or documentation that We may require, including but not limited to, specific requirements in some jurisdictions (such as those required for currency control reasons).
6.2. The means by which You may place an Order are by providing the information set out at Clause 6.1.2 and contacting Us via the Platform.
6.3. You are solely responsible for ensuring that all details You provide are correct. We will do everything We reasonably can to rectify any errors, inaccuracies or omissions in Your Order once You make Us so aware, but such errors, inaccuracies or omissions may lead to a delay or failure in processing Your Order. Neither We nor Partner will be liable for any loss, damage, cost or expense suffered by You or any third party as a result of any such errors, inaccuracies or omissions in Your placement of an Order.
6.4. Where Dual Authorisation is in place when You use the Platform, the Order is only placed when the final authorisation is confirmed on Your behalf. This means that We will not negotiate with You until the final authorisation is confirmed and the Order is placed.
6.5. We may act on an Order from, or purporting to be from, You or the Users, until We have received prior written notice to the contrary and had a reasonable opportunity to act on such notice. Any reference to the means by which We may receive an Order from You or Users includes but shall not be limited to those means set out at Clause 6.2.
7. ENTRY INTO A CONTRACT
7.1. Your Order constitutes a request from You for Us to negotiate a Payment Transaction with You. Our response to Your Order represents a legal offer from Us to You to enter a Payment Transaction subject to certain conditions set out in the offer. This offer must be accepted by You, following which the Contract is formed subject to these Terms.
7.2. The Contract can be concluded by following the means of placing an Order set out at Clause 6. In each instance Your acceptance, by whatever means, serves as Your acceptance of these Terms as governing the offer made by TransferMate to enter the Contract for a Payment Transaction.
7.3. Non-negotiation of Orders:
7.3.1. We reserve the right to request further documents and information before entering negotiations with You in respect of an Order;
7.3.2. Payment Transactions are subject to a minimum and maximum transaction value determined by You and approved by Us, and We may decline to negotiate an Order which falls outside of these value points, notwithstanding that prior Orders of equivalent value were not declined; and
7.3.3. We may notify You of Our refusal to negotiate an Order without giving any reason. We and/or the Partner will have no liability to You as a result of doing so.
7.4. Cancellation of Payment Transactions:
7.4.1. In the event of You having formed a Contract with Us in error, You are advised to contact Us immediately on receipt of the booking confirmation (which We will provide You with) requesting the Contract to be cancelled. Any loss arising on such cancellation will be charged to You and payable by You, and there may be additional cancellation fees attaching to Your request.
7.5. Non-execution or Delays in Payment Transactions:
7.5.1. Notwithstanding the formation of a Contract, We hereby reserve a contractual right to delay or not to complete the execution of the Payment Transaction in instances where:
220.127.116.11. abnormal and unforeseeable circumstances beyond Our control which prohibit or limit Us executing the Payment Transaction;
18.104.22.168. legal obligations covered by Applicable Laws and regulations make the execution of the Payment Transaction a potentially illegal or non-compliant action;
22.214.171.124. Our Anti-Money Laundering Policy requires so, or where any requirement under Our Anti-Money Laundering Policy cannot be met to Our satisfaction;
126.96.36.199. due to the automation of the Service, errors in quoted rates may have occurred leading to the provision to You of erroneous rates at the time of placing the Order, including where You have requested a rate over the weekend as an exception;
188.8.131.52. errors, inaccuracies or omissions in Your Order may mean that a Payment Transaction cannot be completed (meaning Our making the Final Transfer) as scheduled; or
184.108.40.206. We are unable to verify the source of funds and therefore cannot process the Lodgement in accordance with the Applicable Laws.
7.5.2. We shall endeavour to inform You as soon as possible in the event of non-execution of the Payment Transaction and in any event no later than the next Banking Day, together with the reason for the failure unless We are prevented (in Our sole but reasonable discretion) from disclosing same to You. We shall endeavour to complete the Payment Transaction if the impediment preventing execution can be removed, or where applicable, when the errors, inaccuracies or omissions are corrected.
7.5.3. Where the provisions of Clause 7.5.1 lead to the non-completion of or a delay in execution of a Payment Transaction, any commitments provided by Us as to the timing of making the Final Transfer may be adversely impacted, and therefore neither We nor Partner accept any liability for the non-completion of, or a delay to completing, a Payment Transaction. Where We need to cancel the Payment Transaction as a result of Your actions, and return the Lodgement to You, We shall charge You the cancellation fees as provided for in Clause 7.4.1.
8. FUNDING THE PAYMENT TRANSACTION
8.1. You may complete the Lodgement by one of the following means, noting not all options are available in respect of every Supported Currency Pair:
8.1.1. Unless You are permitted and have set up a pull payment as provided for at Clause 8.1.2, the default mechanism by which You are expected to make the Lodgement is by payment of a wire transfer or electronic funds transfer in the currency agreed. We will provide You with the requisite details of the Nominated Account at the time at which the Contract is agreed, and it is Your obligation to ensure You use the correct Nominated Account. There is no need for You to separately effect a Lodgement where You chose to use existing funds in Your Global Account to fund the Payment Transaction. In this instance the provisions of Clause 8.1.3 shall apply.
8.1.2. Where applicable, You may have the option to request to make Lodgements by Direct Debit (‘DD’) or Automated Clearing House (‘ACH’) pull payments however this is not available in every territory, nor may You transfer funds out of Your Global Account by DD/ACH payment. You acknowledge that (1) We are under no obligation to provide You with this option, (2) We may withdraw this from You at any time, and (3) We shall require that You make at least one transfer by the means set out at Clause 8.1.1. You confirm that You understand the risk and limitations attaching to the use of DD / ACH as set out in Clause 8.8.
8.1.3. Where You have Pre-Funded a Global Account as provided for in Clause 8.3, the Global Account may operate as the Nominated Account from which You may authorise Us to fund Payment Transactions directly.
8.2. You are legally obliged to complete the Lodgement of the agreed amount with the Booking Reference with all of the information We require from You, including as detailed in Clause 6.1.2, within 2 Business Days of the date on which the Contract is entered (the “Settlement Date”). Accordingly, this Contract is only suitable if You are able to deliver, on or before the Settlement Date, the Lodgement in the currency/funds You have agreed to buy from Us, together with all of the necessary information required on that Payment Transaction. We may extend the Settlement Date up to the start of the fifth Business Day after the date on which the Contract is entered, in order to allow You more time to meet these requirements, but this extension shall be provided entirely at Our discretion. You should place no reliance on this potential extension and understand that You risk a breach of Contract if You fail to make the Lodgement in full and by the end of the second Business Day. We refer to the effecting of a Lodgement after the Contract has been entered as “Post-Funding”.
8.3. It may also be possible to pre-fund the Lodgement (“Pre-Funding”), i.e. to make the Lodgement in advance of entering the Contract for the Payment Transaction, by using funds already in the Global Account or transferring funds into the Global Account with or without having an identifiable Payment Transaction. You may then instruct Us that You wish Us to use the Global Account to fund the Payment Transaction.
8.4. Delivery of the Lodgement shall be by use of one of the methods set out at Clause 8.1. Under no circumstances shall We accept a Lodgement by any other means, even if We have previously permitted such alternative means of making a Lodgement.
8.5. A failure by You to make the Lodgement in full and by the Settlement Date is a breach of the Contract, in which event We will close out the Contract at its then prevailing market rates and any loss or costs incurred by Us as a result of Your contractual breach shall be recoverable in full from You on demand by Us, including any additional third-party cancellation fees attaching to Your request. Late or incomplete settlement shall incur default interest on the total amount due, at a compound rate of 5% per annum, calculated daily and payable to Us on the date payment is made.
8.6. Unless otherwise agreed with You in accordance with Clause 8.1.2, We do not have nor do We request, any access to the Funding Account and shall not unilaterally debit funds from Your Funding Account, unless We are required to return funds in the Global Account to You as provided for in the Global Account Terms.
8.7. Where You make the Lodgement but there is missing information or We have a reasonable concern over the way in which the Lodgement is effected (including if there is a concern the Lodgement was from a third party account or was made in breach of the Applicable Law or where We may reasonably believe or suspect that such Lodgement may not meet the standards in Our Anti-Money Laundering Policy), then We reserve Our right to delay making the Final Transfer, and where possible We shall engage with You. Unless Our concerns are resolved to Our satisfaction, We shall return the Lodgement to You as soon as reasonably practicable. Such retained Lodgements shall not bear interest against Us. If You wish to receive funds from third parties then You may request them to pay funds directly into Your Global Account (where permitted), or You may wish to apply for, and be accepted for, the Receivables Services.
8.8. Risks and limitations associated with the use of ACH/DD (where applicable):
8.8.1. It is imperative that You ensure that all details supplied by You on the Mandate are correct and valid, and that only authorised signatories on Your Funding Account have signed this Mandate, and confirm You shall indemnify Us for any losses incurred by Us as a result of errors made by You on the Mandate.
8.8.2. You are obliged to ensure that (1) there are sufficient funds in Your Funding Account to meet the direct debit payment and (2) sufficient funds remain in Your Funding Account until the direct debit has cleared and settled into the Nominated Account. If a Lodgement by way of DD/ACH does not reach the Nominated Account due to insufficient funds or for any other reason, You must then complete the Lodgement by way of wire transfer to Us so that the Lodgement is not delayed. TransferMate shall never facilitate a shortfall from You, nor do We offer any credit facility where You are delayed in completing a Lodgement.
8.8.3. Where a Lodgement by Mandate gives You chargeback rights (which allows You to reverse a Lodgement), it is a condition of Us permitting You to use this method of Lodgement that You shall only exercise this chargeback right if We have breached this Agreement or there was an Unauthorised Transaction as a direct result of Our error. You confirm that You will not exercise Your chargeback right for any other reason, including a dispute with the Beneficiary or if there are insufficient funds in Your Funding Account, and in the event of You exercising a chargeback in such a scenario and in breach of the provisions of this Clause, You shall immediately make good the loss that We incur on demand by transferring the funds to Us by wire transfer, no later than the end of the next Business Day after You exercise this right. Further, if We need to investigate or take any actions in connection with a chargeback raised by You, We reserve Our rights to charge You for Our costs in doing so where We conclude that You have not adhered to this Clause, and shall bring this Clause to the attention of the arbiter of the chargeback dispute.

9. COMPLETION OF THE FINAL TRANSFER BY TRANSFERMATE
9.1. Processing the Final Transfer:
9.1.1. The time at which We receive the Lodgement in cleared funds in the Nominated Account and the Payment Rail selected determines the time at which We can process the Payment Transaction. Same Day Processing is possible in respect of Pre-Funding and also for certain currency transfers and dependent on applicable time zones and whether banks in all countries impacted by the Payment Transaction are open, however We undertake that We shall process the Payment Transaction and make the Final Transfer no later than the next Banking Day following the receipt of the Lodgement in cleared funds, as shall be set out when presenting You with the potential Payment Rails applicable to the Final Transfer.
9.1.2. The amount credited by way of Final Transfer to the Beneficiary will be net of fees, charges, commissions and any interest due.
9.2. A confirmation of the Final Transfer (the “Payment Confirmation”) will be issued to You via the Platform. If You do not receive a Payment Confirmation within 24 hours of the date on which the Lodgement is made or within four (4) Banking Days from the date of the Contract was entered, it is recommended that You contact Us through the Platform to enable Us to check the reason for the absence of the Payment Confirmation. The Payment Confirmation will detail the information at Clause 9.2.1 to 9.2.6 and provides the means of enabling You to identify the Payment Transaction, which shall also be provided to the Beneficiary unless You expressly request Us not to make such disclosure. By hereby permitting such disclosure, You agree to hold Us, Our affiliates, subcontractors and partners harmless for any damage or loss suffered by You resulting from enquiries from the Beneficiary or a User. We represent and warrant that We will exercise ordinary care in releasing this information;
9.2.1. the Booking Reference, which enables You to identify the Payment Transaction;
9.2.2. the date on which the Payment Transaction was effected;
9.2.3. the value date of the Payment Transaction;
9.2.4. a breakdown of the fees and charges payable by You;
9.2.5. the exchange rate used and the amount of the Final Transfer after the currency conversion; and
9.2.6. additional and further information as may be requested by You subject to an additional charge.
9.3. Upon You becoming aware of any Unauthorised Transaction or otherwise incorrectly executed Payment Transaction, You must notify Us without delay. Where We establish that the Payment Transaction was erroneously effected by Us, We shall refund to You, the amount of the erroneous Payment Transaction plus any charges thereon. In the event of a suspected Unauthorised Transaction, it is Your responsibility to promptly notify Us of the relevant details and, if You do not notify Us of a suspected Unauthorised Transaction as soon as You become aware of it, it will significantly impact on Our ability to trace and return the funds. Such notification must be made at the latest within 3 months of the debit date of the Payment Transaction, otherwise You will lose any right to have the matter corrected or money refunded.
9.4. You agree and acknowledge that We shall have no obligation to make a Final Transfer for the reasons set out in Clause 8.7, and acknowledge that neither TransferMate nor Partner accept liability or responsibility for any loss, cost or expense incurred or suffered by You in connection with Us invoking Our rights under Clause 8.7, including because You are subsequently in default of Your obligations to Us or a third party.
9.5. In certain instances, TransferMate may rely on one of its affiliates to receive Lodgements from You, and this may mean that the Mandate is entered with another TransferMate entity, however the obligation on delivering the Services to You shall always be with TransferMate.
9.6. In the event that We have completed the Final Transfer before receiving cleared and settled funds from You, including for example where a DD/ACH payment is reversed, a DD request is cancelled or a payment is disputed , You will be liable to pay Us the amount of the Final Transfer plus interest at the rate of 5% per annum.
9.7. TransferMate and/or Partner are not responsible for any fees or charges that may be imposed by the financial institutions associated with the payment facilities You nominate.

Please note that a global account may not be available to all customers.
• Base Currency means the currency of the country in which TransferMate is operating.
• Currency Table means the table of supported currencies through which We are able to issue funds to You in Your Global Account as may be modified from time to time as shall be made available on the Platform.

1. Global Accounts are a regulated product offered by TransferMate
1.1. For details of TransferMate’s regulated status, please refer to https://www.transfermate.com/regulations/. As it pertains to the Global Account, if there is any inconsistency between this Schedule and the Terms or other Schedules herein, this Schedule will prevail.
2. Explaining the Option to Hold funds in a Global Account with Bank Details
2.1. Global Accounts are a means of holding funds in a payment account in accordance with applicable law. TransferMate provides You by default with a Global Account with Bank Details denominated in Your Base Currency, which grants You a unique virtual account reference, through which money can be paid in local currency and local payment schemes, subject to availability. Irrespective of whether Your funds are held in a Global Account with Bank Details or otherwise, the same protection applies for all Your funds.
3. Introduction Global Accounts offered by TransferMate
3.1. The Global Account is a payment account which enables You to send and receive electronic payments. The funds in the Global Account are issued in accordance with Applicable Law. The funds held in the Global Account do not expire (notwithstanding that the Global Account may be terminated in accordance with Clause 13 below), but the funds will not earn any interest.
3.2. The means by which You can fund the Global Account are set out in Clause 7.5 (noting transfers from a third party are only permitted where You have been accepted to use Our Receivables Service).
3.3. The means by which You can transfer funds out of a Global Account are set out in Clause 7.6. For these purposes, making payments from a Global Account includes making payments to third party beneficiaries or instructing funds in a Global Account to be transferred to another account in Your name. There is also the option to move funds held in the Global Account between different Global Accounts in Your name and across different Supported GA Currencies, subject to certain restrictions on infrequently traded Supported GA Currency pairings.
3.4. There may be a limit on the number of Global Accounts You can open in any one currency, which shall be advised to You as and when You request additional Global Accounts.
4. Protection and Ownership of a Global Account
4.1. When TransferMate receives a payment into the Global Account (whether from You or from a third party payer), it is TransferMate’s obligation to place the equivalent value of funds in a dedicated account or other permissible high quality liquid asset held by TransferMate (therefore separate from TransferMate’s own money). This money is never lent out or put at risk.
4.2. Global Accounts are not bank accounts and accordingly the Deposit Guarantee Scheme (or equivalent deposit protection in Your country of residence) does not apply to the Global Account. TransferMate strictly adheres to the legal requirements under applicable law which are designed to ensure the safety and liquidity of funds deposited in the Global Account. In this regard, the funds corresponding to Your values in the Global Account will be separate from the funds of TransferMate and segregated in accordance with applicable law and the means set out at Clause 4.1. This protection continues until You ask Us to redeem Your funds by instructing Us to make a payment from Your Global Account. For further information on how TransferMate safeguards client funds, please refer to
4.3. TransferMate shall treat the funds in a Global Account as belonging to You, and no person other than You has any rights in relation to the funds held in the Global Account. You may not assign, transfer or novate the Global Accounts to a third party or otherwise grant any third party a legal or equitable interest over it unless a court or competent regulatory body requires You to, in which case TransferMate shall use all commercially reasonable endeavours to assist You in executing such assignment, transfer, novation or grant.
5. Opening a Global Account.
5.1. A Global Account denominated in the Base Currency shall be provided to You at the end of the Account Opening Process or at the point on which You next wish to use the Service. The Global Account may be used as the default Nominated Account.
5.2. In order to use a Global Account, You must have already onboarded (which may happen contemporaneously) with Us for the provision of the Services as provided for in the Terms, and You must provide Us with a default Funding Account(s). You may not access the Global Account until this has been completed. You understand that agreeing to the Terms is essential in order to allow TransferMate offer and operate the Global Account.
5.4. By using the Global Account, You are also confirming that You (i) have regular access to the internet and email and (ii) are able to store information sent to You by email and other electronic means including by TransferMate in a durable medium by printing out or otherwise retaining for future reference all electronic communications sent and information made available to You by TransferMate. It is for You to ensure that Your contact details are up to date and that You are able to access any such communications and information at all times.
5.5. You agree to not carry out any Prohibited Business Activities through a Global Account (defined in Clause 10).
5.6. Notwithstanding any messaging on the Platform and during the application process, You understand that TransferMate may ultimately decline to permit You to operate a Global Account or put limitations on how You operate the Global Account, without providing You with any reason. You acknowledge that all regulatory requirements need to be met before You may operate a Global Account.
6. Maintaining a Global Account
6.1. You must ensure that the information recorded on the Global Account is always complete, accurate and up to date and TransferMate shall not be liable for any loss arising out of Your failure to do so. TransferMate may ask You at any time to confirm and/or provide documents or other evidence as to the accuracy of this information.
6.2. TransferMate may contact You (via the Platform) in accordance with Clause 5 of the Terms with information or notices regarding the Global Account. It is Your responsibility to regularly check the proper functionality of Your email account or other methods of communication that You have registered with TransferMate and to retrieve and read messages relating to the Global Account (and more broadly the Services provided for in the Terms). TransferMate shall not be liable for any loss arising out of Your failure to do so.
6.3. You may hold funds in Your Global Account in any Supported GA Currency as specified in the Currency Table, subject to limits on the number of Global Accounts You may hold. TransferMate reserves its right to change these at any time but shall use reasonable endeavours to give You prior notice before a Supported GA Currency is withdrawn. You acknowledge that You accept any risks related to holding balances in multiple currencies noting specifically that exchange rates may fluctuate, and that any decisions on the use of the Global Accounts as means of hedging against currency risk is a matter for You. You agree You will not use the Global Account for speculative trading.
6.4. You are obliged to maintain a positive balance on Your Global Account. Failure to do so whether as a result of a chargeback, reversal of a transaction, deduction of fees or any other action carried by You, is a breach of these Global Account Terms. You shall correct the negative balance within 5 days of the sooner of (i) You becoming aware of the negative balance or (ii) Our making a request to You. If You owe Us money, We can take the amount You owe Us from any amount We are due to pay to You or hold in another Global Account for. We call this Our right of set-off.
6.5. Your Global Account may be subject to funding, payment or conversion limits due to security and legal requirements as determined by TransferMate from time to time using reasonable discretion. If TransferMate is lawfully able to, TransferMate shall notify You in writing as soon as is reasonably practicable following any determination that funding, payment or conversion limits are to be imposed.
6.6. You may be asked to answer security questions or to complete other security authentication processes that TransferMate may reasonably require in relation to the Global Account, and You agree to comply with these processes and requirements as may change from time to time.
6.7. TransferMate reserves the right (in TransferMate’s reasonable discretion) to carry out all and any necessary money laundering, terrorism financing, fraud or other illegal activity checks before processing any Payment Transaction / Receivables Transaction from or into the Global Account.
7. Operation of the Global Account
7.1. Overview of the Global Account: The Global Account provides You with a payment account specifically for Your use that may be used to make Payment Transactions, take Receivables Transactions, hold and convert between funds in one or more specified countries in the Supported GA Currency for that country.
7.2. How are balances represented: The funds collected in the Global Account will be represented as the aggregate of the balances in each Supported GA Currency (noting that there may be multiple balances in a Supported GA Currency) displayed on the Platform.
7.3. Request to open additional Global Account(s)
7.3.1. You are required to submit a request to open a Global Account by logging on to the Platform, and provide, as prompted, the required information on the Platform, which includes, but is not limited to, the following information:
126.96.36.199. the currency or currencies of the requested Global Account(s); and
188.8.131.52. any further information required by TransferMate from time to time prior to the creation of the Global Account.
7.3.2. The Global Account will only be created when TransferMate is satisfied that You have provided sufficient details and information to open a Global Account, and TransferMate has been able to verify this information. TransferMate reserves the right to refuse to open a Global Account with Bank Details for You, notwithstanding that You may hold funds in a Global Account, and further may limit the number of Global Accounts You hold at any time.
7.4. Source of funds in Global Account: The funds that are transferred into the Global Account must be funds from a legitimate source. You must ensure that the Global Account is not used to collect funds from third parties for any illegal or fraudulent purpose. Upon request, You agree to promptly provide evidence of funding sources.
7.5. How to transfer funds into the Global Account
7.5.1. Internally via the Platform, which is referred to as a “Request to Pay”: To effect this, You will need to log in to the Platform and obtain the reference details for the Global Account in the relevant Supported GA Currency, and book either a Payment Transaction or a Receivables Transaction. TransferMate is not responsible for the funds transferred by a Payment Transaction or a Receivables Transaction until TransferMate has actually received those funds. TransferMate’s responsibilities and duties for a Payment Transaction or a Receivables Transaction are as set out in the relevant sections of the Terms.
7.5.2. From external sources: alternatively, without engaging with the Platform, You or any legitimate Payer (noting all Payers shall be subject to screening and approval by TransferMate, and before permitting such Receivables Transactions there are conditions and limitations set out at clause 7.5.3) may transfer funds into a Global Account with Bank Details through an external bank transfer using account details as indicated by TransferMate on the Platform.
7.5.3. In the event that a transfer is received from a Payer and You have not requested or been granted access to funding from Receivables Transactions, We reserve Our right to return the funds by default to the external source, however subject to the following conditions We may permit such a transfer into Your Global Account.
184.108.40.206. You understand that in the event that any actions of the Payer cause a loss to Us (as specified below in Clause 4), You are legally obliged to make good that loss on demand from Us.
220.127.116.11. You acknowledge that in some circumstances, We may not be able to collect from a country or a specific currency, or We may be prohibited from dealing with a particular Payer. We hereby reserve Our right to bring this limitation or restriction to Your attention without incurring any liability on Our part.
18.104.22.168. In some countries there are regulatory or export restrictions on the frequency and value of funds that can be remitted from that country at one time in a single transaction. TransferMate continually monitors these restrictions and makes reasonable efforts to notify You where the limit may impact on Our ability to complete a Receivables Transaction. However, where We are prevented by such restriction from performing the Receivables Services, We shall have no liability to You for any loss or damage You may incur as a result. We shall notify You of the restriction and offer You the option to cancel the Receivables Transaction or amend the amount being sought. It is always Your obligation to be aware of the Applicable Laws and restrictions attaching to the remittance of funds from the Payer and the Payer’s country of residence.
22.214.171.124. On Our receipt of funds from Payer, You will solely receive a notification of a Lodgement to Your Global Account (where applicable) in accordance with the Global Account Terms.
7.5.4. The options available to You for making transfers of funds into Your Global Account will depend on a number of factors including where You live and Your verification status with Us. We reserve Our right to amend, add or withdraw funds transfer options from You at any time without notice to You.
7.5.5. TransferMate assumes no responsibility for failed transfers that are outside of the control of TransferMate.
7.5.6. We do not accept cash, cheques, or other ways of loading funds onto Your Global Account. In certain cases, in particular where funds are transferred from external sources, there may be a mismatch between the currency of the funds being transferred and the currency associated with the Global Account with Bank Details. In such a scenario, this is likely to cause delays and potentially mean that the transfer cannot be completed. This risk may be mitigated by using the Platform as set out at Clause 7.5.1.
7.6. How to transfer funds out of or between Global Accounts
7.6.1. You can transfer funds out of the Global Account at any time by agreeing a Payment Transaction with TransferMate as set out in Clause 8.1.3 of the Terms and opting to fund that Payment Transaction from the Global Account.

10. Restriction on use of Global Account
10.1. You may not use the Global Account for the following purposes, and any suspicion that You have used the Global Account for the following shall be deemed “Prohibited Business Activities” and be a breach of the Global Account Terms:

10.1.2. in a way that TransferMate reasonably believes might harm its ability to provide the Global Account;
10.1.3. only to send money to and receive money from a credit card;

10.1.6. to give access to any person who is not an authorised User;
10.1.7. to allow anyone who isn’t an authorised User to have access to or use Your Global Account or the Platform;

In all such cases TransferMate will, to the extent permitted under applicable laws, provide You with reasonable notice in advance of taking these steps. However, TransferMate may suspend access to the Global Account and/or Your authorised User’s access to the Global Account without notice if there is use of the Global Account or the Services in such a manner that could cause legal liability to TransferMate, or disrupt other’s ability to access and use the Services, or if there is a suspicion of Prohibited Business Activities.
11.2. As provided for under Clause 6.3, TransferMate reserves its right to withdraw the Supported GA Currencies and where You hold funds in a withdrawn Supported GA Currency, You are obligated to transfer the funds to another Supported GA Currency (using the means Clause 7.6.1), otherwise TransferMate shall by default, transfer the funds into the Base Currency.
11.3. Functionality associated with the Platform may be modified or withdrawn from time to time. It is TransferMate’s intention to improve Your experience by ensuring all modifications are positive and progressive, but You acknowledge that making such modifications may change the experience that You have of the Platform, including the loss of functionality that You may value.

In the case of an executed payment or withdrawal from Your Global Account not authorised by You or a User, TransferMate will refund the amount of the unauthorised payment to You, and where applicable, restore the debited payment account to the state it would have been in had the unauthorised Payment Transaction not taken place. If TransferMate fails to execute or incorrectly executes a Payment Transaction without any fault by You (including but not limited to Your incorrect insertion of Global Account details or execution formatting errors), then unless TransferMate can establish that the Beneficiary’s payment service provider received the amount of the Payment Transaction, TransferMate will refund to You the amount of the non-executed or defective Payment Transaction promptly after becoming aware of the error, and, where applicable, restore the debited payment account to the state in which it would have been had the defective Payment Transaction not taken place. TransferMate will also refund to You any direct charges and any interest (save for any Conversion Fees) which You must pay as a consequence of the non-execution or defective execution of the Payment Transaction. Beyond this, TransferMate has no further liability to You for any unauthorised or incorrectly executed Payment Transactions. 12.3. Taxes.
