5. How the Service Works
5.1 The Service allows you to provide and have verified the information necessary to initiate a transfer of funds from a Designated Bank Account to any Merchant who accepts ACH and Wire Transfer powered by Rapid Transfer as a means of payment. Once you selected to pay via ACH and Wire Transfer powered by Rapid Transfer on the payment checkout page of the website of any Merchant who uses the Service, you were redirected from the Merchant website to our Website.
5.2 You will need to input the Online Banking Credentials for your Designated Bank Account. When providing this information, you give the Merchant, and Rapid Transfer as its service provider, the authority to act on your behalf to access your Designated Bank Account and transmit information from your Designated Bank Account to the Merchant.
5.3 We will use your Online Banking Credentials to run an automated check on your Designated Bank Account to assess if the transfer of funds will be successful. We will communicate this assessment to the Merchant. We will then be returned to the Merchant website checkout confirmation page.
5.4 Our assessment as to whether your requested transfer of funds will be successful or not will be based on a variety of factors. Reasons why we may determine that your requested transfer will not be successful include:
- you provide us with incomplete or incorrect information;
- there are insufficient funds in your Designated Bank Account to make the transfer;
- we have reason to believe you are not the named account holder of the Designated Bank Account;
- we believe the requested transfer may be fraudulent or otherwise unlawful; or
- we reasonably believe we are required to do so to comply with applicable law.
5.5 If our assessment is that the transfer will be successful, the Merchant should then initiate the transfer of funds by securely communicating with your Designated Bank and instructing it to make a transfer of funds from your Designated Bank Account. Your Designated Bank should then make the transfer of funds in line with any timeframes you have agreed to with them.
5.6 If our assessment is that the transfer will not be successful, the Merchant will cancel the requested transaction.
5.7 Please note that Rapid Transfer’s only responsibility in providing the Service is to run an automated check on your Designated Bank Account to assess if the transfer of funds will be successful or not and to communicate that assessment to the Merchant. Rapid Transfer does not transfer funds or initiate any transfer of funds, and Rapid Transfer is not responsible or liable for any mistakes or wrongful acts committed by any Designated Bank or by any Merchant.
