The client understands and agrees that the total invoice amount will include the iPayTotal Application and Consultation fee and the applicable VAT(20%).
In case of rejection by all the iPayTotal banking partners even after supplying all necessary documentation needed and demanded, and if iPayTotal is not able to place the company with a payment processing partner within 60 days of the payment of fee , iPayTotal will refund the GBP 500 fee to the client. The refund will be made within 60 working days after the client submits the Refund Request.
Company is not responsible for the delay caused by third party services such as Banking Partners , Courier Services etc. Based on external factors like these, Client cannot claim a refund of service charges. It is understood that submission of application for payment services is never generic, routine and/or time bound. The concerned case officer may call for additional documents, as per the changing requirements of the process, and may request for further submission of such additional documents to the concerned banks and underwriting authorities. Any request for refund on these grounds will not be entertained.
By signing/acknowledging the agreement to avail our services, Client cannot withdraw AT ANY POINT during the process because of own personal circumstances which may have changed. It is unacceptable to consider or entertain any form of settlement. As a business with heavy investments, we cannot accommodate requests for refunds once services have been provided or when any part of the process has commenced.
