RBC PayEdge Terms of Service
These terms of service (“Terms of Service”) apply to Company’s access to and use of the Service. By accepting these Terms of Service, Company activates the capacity to make and/or receive payments, and agrees to the following provisions:
2. Licence to Use Company Data. Company hereby grants to WayPay and WayPay Parties an irrevocable, perpetual, world-wide, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, store, encode, resize, reformat, host, process and otherwise modify, translate, maintain or prepare derivatives, and perform, display, disseminate and distribute the Company Data as may be necessary for WayPay and WayPay Parties to provide the Service to Company; to verify Company’s identity and understand its financial situation and background; to determine, and make decisions about, the eligibility of Company for the Service or other products and service provided by the WayPay Parties; to communicate to Company any benefit, feature or other information about the Service or other products and service provided by the WayPay Parties; and as required or permitted by Applicable Laws. For such purposes, WayPay may share any Company Data with other Persons, including, without limitation, the WayPay Parties, Regulatory Authorities, and any Person Company requests. Company represents and warrants that it has the right to grant the licence above.
3.1. Company will pay to WayPay fees for Company’s use of the Service in one of two ways:
(a) A flat, monthly fee payable by Company by pre-authorized payments (the “SaaS Fees”) which include transactions as set out in the fee schedules provided to Company by WayPay from time to time, which WayPay may amend or otherwise change at any time; or
(b) on a per-Transaction basis (“Pay-Per-Play Fees” and together with SaaS Fees, “Fees”). Pay-Per-Play Fees will be charged by WayPay and payable by Company for each Transaction, and will be disclosed to Company at the time that Company submits a Request for Payment. Pay-Per-Play Fees are subject to change by WayPay at any time.
Fees associated with the Service are made available on the Website, or otherwise provided to Company. All amounts expressed therein are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.
3.2. If available, Company may elect to receive additional fee-based services, such as custom reporting and custom remittance details. Any such services and associated fees will be mutually agreed upon by the parties.
4. Foreign Payments. WayPay, in its sole discretion, may, upon notice, hold, review or charge additional fees for Foreign Payments. If a Transaction requires conversion of funds from one currency to another currency, unless otherwise agreed in writing by WayPay, WayPay may convert the funds to the applicable currency at the applicable currency conversion rate established for such purpose by WayPay in its discretion. WayPay will not be responsible for any loss or damage relating to foreign currency conversions.
5. Taxes. Company shall pay all applicable taxes incurred by its use of the Service.
6. Making and Receiving Payments via the Service
6.1. Payments and RBC PayEdge Wallet.
6.1.1. Company acknowledges that each payment consists of two Transactions:
(a) Company Funding; and
(b) Supplier Payment.
6.1.2. Company may maintain a balance in their RBC PayEdge Wallet, which may be used for Supplier Payment. WayPay may combine Company’s balance(s) with the balances of other customers and may invest those funds in liquid investments. WayPay owns the interest or other earnings on these investments. These pooled amounts are held separate from WayPay’s corporate funds, and WayPay will neither use these funds for its operating expenses or any other corporate purposes nor will it voluntarily make these funds available to its creditors in the event of bankruptcy. WayPay is not a bank and does not itself take deposits. Company will not receive any interest on the funds held with WayPay. Any balance Company holds in a RBC PayEdge Wallet represents an unsecured claim against WayPay.
Any balance in an RBC PayEdge Wallet may be used as a source of funds for Supplier Payments and/or Fees. Payments received by Company through the Service may be transmitted to the Company’s RBC PayEdge Wallet. The RBC PayEdge Wallet cannot be used outside of the Service.

(i) Company Funding; and,
(ii) the Fees.
6.2.2. WayPay may change the accepted Payment Methods at any time. If WayPay no longer accepts a Payment Method that was previously accepted by WayPay, and Company submits a Request for Payment using that previously accepted Payment Method, Company’s payment will not be processed. WayPay will not be liable for any damages caused by a change in accepted Payment Methods. For clarity, a Payment Method that is accepted for payment of Fees may not be accepted for payment of Company Funding, and vice versa.
6.3. Scheduled Payments.
6.3.1. Company may use the Service to make Requests for Payment specifying one or more future dates on which a payment is to be processed by WayPay (a “Scheduled Payment”). Once a Request for Payment for a Scheduled Payment is submitted by Company, WayPay will not be required to provide any notice in advance of the date of the Scheduled Payment. Company will be responsible for ensuring that the Payment Method applied to any Scheduled Payment will be valid on the date the Scheduled Payment is processed by WayPay.
6.3.2. Cancelling Scheduled Payments. Company may cancel a Scheduled Payment at any time up to the day prior to the date of the Scheduled Payment. Once WayPay has begun processing a Request for Payment for a Scheduled Payment, the Scheduled Payment cannot be cancelled. For any cancelled Scheduled Payment, the Company Funding will be returned to Company, less any fees incurred by WayPay for the Company Funding Transaction.
6.4. Payment Limitations. WayPay reserves the right to impose limitations on the size, frequency and time frame of payments per User.
6.5. Supplier Payments.
6.5.1. WayPay makes no guarantees, warranties, representations or commitments regarding when a Supplier Payment will be received by a Supplier. Company acknowledges that any timeline provided by WayPay regarding Supplier Payment is an estimate only. WayPay will not be liable for any fees, penalties or late payment interest charged to Company by a Supplier or any third party as a result of a delay in Supplier Payment. It is the Company’s responsibility to only approve payments after Company has confirmed Supplier has shipped the goods or delivered the services. Company accepts all risks associated with non-performance of Supplier.
6.5.2. WayPay will not be liable for any failure to complete or delay in completing any Supplier Payment for any reason, including but not limited to, any of the following:

(g) any Force Majeure Event.
6.5.3. Fund Holds. WayPay may, in its sole discretion, place holds on payments to verify Company’s identity or the identity of any Supplier, or the legality of a Payment Method or Request for Payment. WayPay may request, and Company shall provide, additional information regarding a payment before a hold is released. In addition to holds, WayPay reserves the right to deny or reverse payments at its own discretion, independent of availability of credit from financial institutions. WayPay will not be liable for any fees, penalties or late payment interest charged to Company by a Supplier or any third party as a result of a delay in payments that are held, denied or reversed.
6.6 Foreign Exchange
6.6.1. Foreign Exchange Deal. Company agrees that a valid and binding transaction will occur upon the issuance by WayPay of an order number (“Order Number”) for a transaction that Company has sent to WayPay using the Service. Company understands that WayPay is under no obligation to enter into any transaction, and that if an Order Number is not issued for a transaction, then the transaction is not binding on either party. Company further understands and agrees that Foreign Exchange transactions will be settled using valid Payment Method via the Service. If an Order Number is not issued to a Company for a transaction sent to WayPay, then the transaction is not binding on either party.
6.6.2. Reliance on Settlement Information. WayPay is entitled to rely on all settlement information provided by Company and is therefore under no obligation to check for accuracy, sufficiency, inconsistency or timeliness of any information provided to it. Company is responsible for all input errors and is obligated to inform WayPay promptly of any disputed transactions or settlement thereof.
Where Company has instructed WayPay to direct funds to a third party beneficiary in respect of a transaction, payment by WayPay in accordance with such direction shall discharge all obligations of WayPay in respect of such transaction.
6.6.3. Modification of Settlement Instructions. Company may not modify the financial particulars of a transaction once an Order Number is issued for that transaction. Financial particulars consist of the currency codes, currency amounts, exchange rate, and the value date.
Once an Order Number is issued for a transaction, if Company wishes to modify its settlement instructions, notification must be given to WayPay within the Cut-Off Times specified under Supplier Payment Processing & Cut-Off Time. Upon receipt of the modifying instructions, WayPay will at its sole option endeavor to implement them, but WayPay will not be liable to the Company for any failure to do so. Company discharges and will indemnify WayPay from and against any losses, expenses, claims, actions, damages or liabilities incurred by WayPay as a result of the implementation of, or the failure to implement, such modifying instructions.
6.6.4. Cancellation of a Deal. If Company advises WayPay that a specific transaction, for which an Order Number has been issued, is to be cancelled, WayPay may attempt to reverse the transaction, but WayPay does not have any obligation to do so. Company must pay WayPay's cost for complying with the cancellation request together with any service charge, as determined by WayPay. However, failure to cancel the specific transaction will not constitute a breach of WayPay’s responsibilities. Company will be responsible for all such transactions that are settled and not cancelled.
6.7.1. Company acknowledges that upon receipt of the Supplier Payment by a Supplier, WayPay will have completed delivery of the Service for that payment pursuant to these Terms of Service. If Company wishes to request a refund from a Supplier for any reason, Company shall make any such request directly to the Supplier.

WayPay will not reimburse Company for the Fees incurred on the refunded Transactions, and may in its sole discretion, charge additional fees if appropriate.
6.8. Discrepancies and Errors.
6.8.1. If, upon review of the statement of account associated with Company’s Payment Method (as provided by Company’s financial institution), Company believes that a Transaction has been made in error, or otherwise not in compliance with a Request for Payment, or that Fees have been charged in error, Company will notify WayPay via email at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible and, in any event, in no less than sixty (60) days after the date of the Transaction.

6.8.2. In the event that WayPay inadvertently duplicates a Transaction or processes a Transaction for an amount other than the amount indicated in a Request for Payment, or if WayPay causes funds from Company’s Payment Method to be directed to a Supplier which does not comply with the instructions in a Request for Payment, WayPay will use commercially reasonable efforts to either pay the Supplier the difference, or recover any excess payment from the Supplier, as applicable. In the event that WayPay is unable to recover any excess payment made to a Supplier, Company shall cooperate with and assist WayPay in communicating with the applicable Supplier to recover the excess payment amount. In the event that such amount is owing to:
