5.10. In case the Payer indicates incorrect data of the Recipient (unique identifiers), and the Payment Order is executed according to the data provided by the Payer (e.g. the Payer indicates a wrong account number), it shall be considered that Paysera has fulfilled its obligations properly and shall not repay the transferred amount to the Payer. Paysera commits to take all necessary actions to track the payment transaction and will seek to return the funds of the payment transaction, however, in the event of failure to do so, the Payer shall directly contact the person who has received the transfer, on the issue of returning the money.
5.11. The Client is obliged to provide a Payment Order for the execution of the Payment Transaction in accordance with the instructions specified in the System and valid at the moment of the transfer. In case the Client is the Recipient, he is obligated to provide detailed and precise information to the Payer, so that the Payment Order for the Payment Transaction in all cases complies with the instructions in the System and is valid at the moment of transfer. Before sending a Payment Order for the execution of a Payment Transaction or sending information to another Payer, the Client is required to check and update the account top-up instructions. Such instructions and the data provided therein shall be deemed Unique Identifiers, required in order to carry out a Payment Transaction in a proper manner.

If the Payer submits an incorrect Payment Order or indicates incorrect data for the Payment Transfer, but the Payment Transfer has not been executed yet, the Payer may request to correct the Payment Order. In this case, a fee for the correction of the Payment Order is applied, as indicated in the System.
5.13. Provided Paysera has received the funds, but is unable to credit the funds indicated in the Payment Order to the Recipient’s account (e.g. the Recipient’s account is closed, the indicated IBAN number does not exist, or else), Paysera shall return the transaction amount to the sender not later than within two business days. In this case, charges for returning a Payment Order provided for in the System may be applied. If Paysera cannot credit the funds indicated in the Payment Order to the Recipient due to errors the Payer made in the Payment Order, but the Payer requests to return the funds indicated in the Payment Order, the Payment Order may be cancelled and funds may be returned to the Payer, but only under a written request of the Payer and if the Recipient agrees to return the funds to the Payer (if the Recipient can be identified).

5.14. In all cases, when Paysera receives a Payment Order but the funds cannot be credited due to errors in the Payment Order or insufficiency of information, and neither the Payer nor the Recipient have contacted Paysera for specification of the Payment Order or return of the funds, Paysera undertakes all possible measures to track the Payment Transaction in order to receive accurate information and execute the Payment Order.

This measure is applied if there are possibilities to contact the provider of payment services of the Payer by electronic means.
5.14.3. If the aforementioned measures do not help to track the Payment Transaction, Paysera has the right to perform a transfer to the Payer in the amount of 0.01 EUR or another minimum amount, indicating in the payment purpose a request to contact Paysera and specify the incorrect Payment Order via email. The present measure is applied in case Paysera has the account number of the Payer, the cost of such Payment Transfer is reasonable, and the amount of the Payment Transfer is not less than 10.00 (ten) EUR.
5.15. In all cases specified in clause 5.14, the fee for specification of the Payment Order indicated in the System is applied by debiting it from the amount of the transfer before crediting the transfer to the Account of the Client-Recipient.
5.16. In case it is impossible to apply any of the measures listed in clause 5.14 for tracking the Payment Transaction, and in other cases when it is still impossible to identify the Recipient according to the indicated or corrected data, the funds are stored in the Paysera system until the Payer or the Recipient contact and additional data allowing to credit the funds to the Recipient is provided (after debiting the fee for specifying or correcting the Payment Order from the transferred amount before crediting it to the Account of the Client-Recipient). Such funds may also be returned to the Payer under a written request of the Payer. In this case the fee for returning the funds, which is indicated in the System, will be debited from the transferred amount before returning it to the Payer.
5.17. The Client, having noticed that money has been credited to or deducted from their Paysera Account by mistake or in other ways that have no legal basis, is obliged to notify Paysera about it. The Client has no right to dispose of money that does not belong to them. In such cases Paysera has the right, and the Client gives an irrevocable consent to deduct the money from their Paysera Account without the Client's order. If the amount of money in the Paysera Client's Account is insufficient to debit the money credited to or deducted from their Paysera Account to their other accounts by mistake, the Client unconditionally commits to repay Paysera the money credited to or deducted from the Paysera Account to their other accounts by mistake in 3 (three) business days from the receipt of such request from Paysera. If the Client fails to return the money credited by mistake in time, at the request of Paysera, the Client shall pay Paysera daily penalties of 0.05 percent for each day by which the time limit has been exceeded.
5.18. After opening an Account, standard limits for transfers shall be applied towards the Client.

5.23.1. In order to execute a Payment Transaction via the Internet, the Client’s Representative must fill in a Payment Order in the System and submit it for execution, electronically confirming in the System the Client’s Consent to execute the Payment Order.

5.23.3. When submitting a Payment Order inside the System from the Client's Account to the Paysera Account of another person, the Client can choose to perform a password-protected Payment Transfer. In such case, the Client sets a password for the transfer when forming a Payment Order. The Payment Transfer will only be complete after the Recipient has entered the password set by the Client-Payer. If the Recipient does not enter the password set by the Payer, the funds are automatically returned to the Paysera Account of the Payer after 30 (thirty) days. The moment of authorisation of such Payment Transfer is considered the moment when the Recipient enters the password of the transfer. Such Payment Transfer cannot be cancelled after the Recipient has entered the password of the transfer. The Client is fully responsible for the appropriate and safe transfer of the payment password to the Recipient and assures that the password will only be disclosed to the Recipient.
5.23.4. When filling in the Payment Order, the Client can enter a future payment date which can be not later than 2 (two) years from the day the Payment Order was filled in. If the amount of money on the Paysera Account of the Client is sufficient on the day specified by the Client, the Payment Order will be executed. A transfer to another Paysera Account shall be executed at the beginning of the specified day (00:00 a.m. in accordance with the time zone of the server EET). A transfer to a bank account is executed within the terms specified in the System.
5.23.5.

5.23.6. In case the amount of money in the Paysera Account of the Client is insufficient to execute the Payment Transfer, the Payment Transfer is not executed, however, the System will attempt executing the Payment Order for 5 (five) more days after the Payment Order receipt. If during this period of time the amount of money in the Paysera Account is still insufficient to execute the Payment Order, the Payment Order shall be cancelled and no longer attempted to execute. If the amount of money in the Account is insufficient in one currency, but there is a sufficient amount of money in another currency, the Payment Transfer shall not be executed until the Client converts the other currency to the currency of the payment (except for cases when the Client has ordered an automatic currency exchange function or the transfer is intended for paying for goods or services via the Paysera system).

7. Payment Order Receipt, Requirements Applied to the Payment Order, and Refusal to Execute the Payment Order
7.1. When the Client is a Payer, the Payment Order is considered received by Paysera (calculation of the time period of execution of such Payment Order starts) on the day of its receipt, or, if the moment of receipt of the Payment Order is not a business day of Paysera, the Payment Order is considered received on the nearest business day of Paysera.
7.2. A Payment Order received by Paysera on a business day of Paysera, but not during business hours set by Paysera, is considered received on the nearest business day of Paysera.
7.3. Payment Orders for payments within the Paysera System are executed immediately (up to a few minutes, unless the Payment Transaction is suspended due to cases set forth by legal acts and the present Agreement), regardless of the business hours of Paysera.
7.4. Paysera has the right to record and store any Payment Orders submitted by any of the means agreed on with Paysera, and to record and store information about all Payment Transactions performed by the Client or according to Payment Orders of the Client.

Paysera does not undertake responsibility for errors, discrepancies, repetitions and/or contradictions in Payment Orders submitted by the Client, including but not limited to, correctness of the details of the Payment Order submitted by the Client.

7.6. Paysera has the right to refuse to execute a Payment Order in case of a reasonable doubt that the Payment Order has been submitted by the Client’s Representative, or that submitted documents are not in line with the requirements set forth by legislation and/or Paysera, or Paysera has reasonable doubt regarding the authenticity and veracity of said documents. If Paysera has reasonable suspicion that the Payment Order has been submitted not by the Client or the Client’s legal representative, or suspicion regarding the authenticity of the submitted documents, or other suspicion regarding the legitimacy or the content of the submitted Payment Order, Paysera has the right to demand from the Client to additionally confirm the submitted Payment Order and/or submit documents confirming the rights of persons to manage the funds held on the Account or other documents indicated by Paysera in a way acceptable to Paysera at the expense of the Client. In cases mentioned in this clause, Paysera acts with the aim to protect the legal interests of the Client, Paysera, and/or other persons, thus, Paysera does not undertake the responsibility for losses which may arise due to refusal to execute the submitted Payment Order.
7.7. The Client shall ensure a sufficient amount of money in a relevant currency on their Account to execute the Payment Order.
7.8. Before executing a Payment Order submitted by the Client, Paysera has the right to require the Client to provide documents proving the lawfulness of the origin of funds related to the Payment Order.

7.9. Paysera has the right to involve third parties to partially or fully execute the Payment Order of the Client, if the Client's interests and/or the essence of the Payment Order require so. In cases where the Payment Order of the Client requires sending and executing the Payment Order further through another financial institution, but this institution suspends the Payment Order of the Client, Paysera is not responsible for such actions of the financial institution, but makes attempts to find out the reasons for the suspension of the Payment Order. Paysera has the right to suspend and/or terminate the execution of the Payment Order of the Client, if required by law or in case it is necessary for other reasons beyond the control of Paysera.
7.10.

7.12. If money transferred by the Payment Order is returned due to reasons beyond the control of Paysera (inaccurate data of the Payment Order, the account of the Recipient is closed, etc.), the returned amount is credited to the Account. Fees paid by the Payer for the Payment Order execution are not returned, and other fees related to the returning of money and, applied to Paysera, can be deducted from the Account.
7.13. Payment Transfers initiated by Paysera may be standard (non-urgent) and urgent (if there is a technical possibility for that). The method of the Payment Transfer is selected by the Client (if there is a technical possibility for that).

8. Provision and Cancellation of the Consent, Cancellation of the Payment Order
8.1. The payment transaction is considered authorised only if the Payer provides Consent. Consent given to a Paysera agent is considered to be given to Paysera. The Client (Payer) may provide consent in the manner determined by Paysera or agreed upon with the Client. Consent submitted in writing must be signed by the Client or his legal representative. Consent may also be confirmed by electronic signature, password, codes, and/or other identity verification means. Consent to execute a payment transaction or several payment transactions can also be granted through the Recipient or the payment initiation service provider. In all cases stipulated in this clause, the Consent shall be deemed duly approved by the Client (Payer), having the same legal validity as the paper document (the Consent) signed by the Client (their representative), and is permissible as a means of proof in resolving disputes between Paysera and the Client in courts and other institutions. The Client shall not be entitled to contest the Payment Transaction executed by Paysera, if the Payment Order has been approved by the Consent provided in the manner set out in this clause.
8.2. The Consent of the Client (Payer) is submitted prior to the execution of the Payment Transaction. Under an agreement between the Client (Payer) and Paysera, the Payment Transaction may be authorised, i.e. such Consent of the Client may be given after the execution of the Payment Transaction.
8.3. The Client agrees that, in executing Payment Orders, Paysera will transmit information specified in the Payment Order (including Personal Data of the Client), to persons directly related to the execution of the Payment Transaction, such as international payment card organisations, companies processing information about payments by payment cards, the provider of payment services of the Recipient, the operator of the payment system for execution of the Payment Transaction, agents of the provider of payment services, the payment initiation service provider of the Recipient, and the Recipient.
8.4. The procedure of cancellation of a Payment Order:
8.4.1. the payment order cannot be canceled after Paysera has received it, except for the cases described in the Agreement;
8.4.2. if a Payment Transaction has been initiated by the Recipient or via the Recipient (e.g. payment using a payment card), or by a payment initiation service provider, the Payer cannot cancel the Payment Order after the Payment Order has been submitted for execution, the Payer has granted the payment initiation service provider the Consent to initiate a payment transaction, or the Payer has granted Consent to the Recipient to perform the Payment Transaction;
8.4.3. the Payment Orders stipulated in clause 5.23.4 of the Agreement may be cancelled until the end of a business day of Paysera, one day before the agreed day;
8.4.4. upon expiry of the terms stipulated in clauses 8.4.1 to 8.4.3 of the Agreement, a Payment Order may be canceled only in case the Client (Payer) and Paysera agree on this. In the cases stipulated in clause 8.4.2 of the Agreement, the Consent of the Recipient is also necessary.
8.4.5. when a Payment Transaction is initiated by the Recipient or through the Recipient by performing the Payment Transaction using a payment card, and when the exact amount of the transaction is unknown at the time when the Payer gives their Consent to execute the Payment Transaction, Paysera may reserve the funds in the Payer’s Account only provided the Payer gives their consent to reserve a specific amount. Upon receipt of information on the exact amount of the Payment Transaction, Paysera shall immediately, and not later than immediately upon receipt of the Payment Order, remove the reservation from the Payer’s Account.
8.5. Paysera shall credit funds to an Account and debit funds from an Account according to the Unique Identifier provided in the Payment Order — the Paysera account number or IBAN Account number. Paysera has the right, but not the obligation, to check whether the Unique Identifier given in the Payment Order received by Paysera corresponds to the name and surname (name of the legal entity) of the Account owner. In case the mentioned Unique Identifier is given to Paysera to debit money from or credit money to the Account, the Payment Order is deemed executed appropriately if it has been executed by the indicated Unique Identifier. If Paysera verifies the Payment Order and establishes an obvious discrepancy between the Unique Identifier provided to Paysera and the name and surname (name of the legal entity) of the Account owner, Paysera has the right to refuse to execute such Payment Transaction.
8.6. Provided Paysera receives a Payment Order to transfer money to the payment account of another provider of Payment services, such Payment Transaction is performed by Paysera according to the Unique Identifier provided in the received Payment Order – the account number of the Recipient in IBAN format, except when the provider of Payment services does not use the IBAN account format. Paysera does not hold the responsibility if the Unique Identifier is not provided in the Payment Order or it is incorrect, and/or the provider of payment services of the Recipient has set a different Unique Identifier for appropriate execution of such Payment Transaction (crediting funds to the payment account of the Recipient).
8.7. If necessary and/or required by institutions of other states, Paysera has the right to receive additional information (e.g. the name and surname or name of the legal entity of the Recipient, a payment code) required for the appropriate execution of the Payment Order.
