A “Transaction” refers to an order given by a Sender that instructs us to make a disbursement to a Recipient via our Services. The “Transaction Amount” is the amount paid to us by the Sender to execute a disbursement to the Recipient. The “Payout Amount” is the amount paid out to the Recipient.

3.7 Using your Payment Instrument. You are required to provide us with (or permit us to have access to) details of a Payment Instrument (such as a bank account, credit or debit card) to execute Transactions on a case by case basis. We may also require details of your Payment instrument to pay fees and other obligations arising from your use of our Services. You must only provide us with details of a Payment Instrument if:
You authorise us to verify that your Payment Instrument is in good standing with the issuing payment service provider. We may verify your Payment Instrument by submitting a request for a payment authorisation and/or a low value credit and/or debit to the Payment Instrument, in accordance with the relevant card and payment scheme rules. We will comply with any card and payment scheme rule to refund any test payment amount charged to your Payment Instrument.
3.8 Profile limit. You may only register and open 1 (one) Profile and we may place limits on the number of email addresses and payment instruments which can be associated with your Profile.
4.1 Our Service Fee. In consideration of our providing you with our Services, you agree to pay us a service fee (“Service Fee”) with each Transaction you submit to us, in addition to the Transaction Amount. Clear details on the discrete Service Fee amount related to a Transaction will be made available to you prior to you giving us your consent to execute your Transaction, giving you time to consider whether you wish to be charged that Service Fee for our Service. For some services, we may agree not to charge you a Service Fee. Payment of our Service Fee and the Transaction Amount in the applicable currency is due and payable by you to us at the time the Transaction is submitted by you for processing. You agree that we may deduct any ServiceFee or other fee that you may owe us from any payment Transaction Amount that we may make available to your nominated Recipient.
4.2 How you can pay us for our Services. We only permit you to pay for our Services (including payment of the Transaction Amount and any applicable Service Fee):
Under no circumstances are we obligated to accept payment for our Services using other payment methods. If you pay us (or attempt to pay us) with a different payment method (for example, in cash) or in a manner in which we do not notify you to make payment, we are under no obligation to provide you with our Services and this will be treated by us as you breaking a material term of this Agreement.
4.3 Card Funded Payments. If you pay us using a debit or credit card, you agree to pay us the Transaction Amount as well as any fee or charge you owe us under this Agreement using your nominated debit or credit card. Each time you submit a Transaction to us, you agree that we are authorised to charge your nominated debit or credit card for any money transfer Transaction as well the fees you owe us before we carry out our payment services or any other transaction.
4.4 Bank Funded Payments. If you pay us for our Services (including payment of the Transaction Amount and any applicable Service Fee) using a Bank Funded Payment, you must follow the instructions we notify you make such a payment. In particular, the following terms strictly apply to your use of this payment method:
4.5 Consequences of not paying us correctly. If you do not comply with the requirements set out in this section 4 when making a payment to us then we will treat your payment (or payment attempt) as a Restricted Activity (please see section 7) and in addition to the other rights we have under this Agreement:
4.6 Other fees and amounts you may owe us. If you submit a Transaction that results in us being charged a fee or an amount as a result of your Payment Instrument not being used in a potentially legitimate manner, and/or with insufficient funds or credit, you agree to pay us the amount equivalent to the amount we are charged. In particular, if you submit a transaction that results in us being charged “NSF fees”, “chargeback fees”, a reclaim of the Transaction Amount, or other similar costs, you agree to reimburse Remitly for all such fees and amounts. These other fees and charges are due by you to us at the time we notify you the applicable fee or charge has arisen. To explain some of these fees in more detail: a “NSF” fee (also known as an ‘insufficient funds’ fee) arises to the extent that we are notified and charged a fee from our banking partners when there are insufficient funds in the bank account you use to fund your Transaction. Also, a ‘chargeback fee’ arises following a challenge made by a user of a card directly to their card issuer (such as a bank). For example, this may occur if a card user makes a claim to their bank that a payment made on that card as
part of the use of our Service has been done so illegitimately and then that card issuer makes an ultimate claim against us for being involved in any such transaction. In the event you are liable for any amounts owed to us, we reserve the right to collect your debt to us through legal means, including, without limitation, through the use of a debt collection agency.
4.7 Currency conversion and exchange rates. Our Services only permit you to send money transfers in certain currencies. Usually this will be the currency which is available in the Recipient’s country or region, but could involve others. Our online forms will calculate the currency which is available to your Recipient and what exchange rate will apply. You will be able to check this before you make a Transaction and it will also be notified to you in our Transaction confirmation notice. You acknowledge and agree that we may earn revenue from the exchange rate applied to a Transaction and by instructing us to process a Transaction via our Service, you agree to the application of the exchange rate calculated for that Transaction.
4.8 You are responsible for third party fees and charges. When using our Services, other third parties may levy fees, costs or other liabilities. This may include your bank, card issuer, phone provider, internet service provider. For example, some credit card issuers may treat the use of your credit card to use our Services as a “cash advance” and may impose additional fees and interest cost for the transaction. Also, your phone and/or Internet service provider may charge you fees relating to data and messaging services. You (and not us) are responsible for any fees, charges, costs and/or expenses charged by such third parties in connection with your use of our Services. Please check your agreements with these third party providers for details on any of these additional costs.
4.9 Taxes. The reporting and payment of any applicable taxes arising from your use of the Services is your responsibility. You agree to comply with any and all applicable tax laws in connection with your use of the Services, including without limitation, the reporting and payment of any taxes arising in connection with your Transactions made through the Services.
5.1 Processing your Transactions. If you submit a Transaction, you are requesting that we process your Transaction. You agree that we may accept or reject your offer to process your Transaction under the terms of this Agreement and that we are not under any obligation to carry out any Transaction for you if, for example, you have broken any of your obligations set out in this User Agreement in a non-trivial manner (and for this purpose, please make sure you do not carry out any ‘Restricted Activities’ mentioned in section 7).
5.2 Transaction execution times. Subject to the other terms of this Agreement, you agree that we will use due and reasonable skill, care and diligence to execute your Transactions and credit funds to your Recipient’s payment service provider with the following execution times after we have received your valid Transaction payment order on a Business Day, which may be:
The time of receipt of your payment order is when we receive it, subject to the terms of this Agreement. If we don't receive your payment order on a Business Day, we may treat the receipt of your payment order on the following Business Day.
There are special rules that apply to the timing of certain payments where our Service allows you to send money within the European Economic Area (which is also known as the “EEA” – this region includes all the countries in the European Union as well as Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway).
These special payment execution rules are:
• Payments made in Euro to Recipients in the EEA – these are made available to the Recipient’s payment service provider no later than the end of the following Business Day after we receive your valid Transaction payment order in accordance with the terms of this Agreement
• All other payments made in other EEA currencies to Recipients in the EEA – these are made available to the Recipient’s payment service provider no later than the end of the fourth Business Day after we receive your valid Transaction payment order in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
We agree that the ‘special payment execution rules’ outlined above do not apply to payment transactions executed in other currencies.
Please note that while the Recipient’s payment provider is likely to be under a legal obligation to make these funds available once they have received them, there may be further delays in your Recipient receiving the funds depending on matters such as the Recipient’s payment service provider’s opening hours as well as them completing their own customer identity checks on the Recipient.
5.3 Execution times conditions and what we need from you to process your Transactions. Our obligations in 5.2 above, are also subject to:
Additionally, if you pay us using a Bank Funded Payment, we will only treat your payment order as validly received by us if you comply with the requirements set out in section 4.4.
5.4 Your card payment authorisation to us. If you pay us for our Services using a debit or credit card, in order for us to process your Transaction you authorise us to charge any of the debit or credit card(s) which we are able to accept (which may include your eligible credit card and/or debit card). You can withdraw your authority for us to charge your debit or credit card by removing it from your Profile. If your payment fails you authorise us to re-try one or more times using the same debit or credit card. By adding a debit or credit card to your Profile with us, you are telling us that you are the lawful user of that debit or credit. Please also be aware of certain fees which may be liable to you when using different types of debit or credit cards as further described in section 4 (Paying for our Services and Currency Exchange).
5.5 Transaction information. Unless we have restricted your use of our
Services you can access your details of executed payment transactions and other
information relating to your transaction history by logging into your Profile.
You agree to review your Transactions through your Profile instead of receiving
periodic statements by post. You agree that any and all Recipient’s details added
by you will be recorded by us to allow you to easily make future Transactions to
that Recipient and by doing so, you agree that you have created a list of trusted
Recipients with those details.
You will also be able to access a downloadable report via your Profile. We make
available the relevant details of your transactions including all fees incurred and any
other amounts charged to you in the relevant period. We will update these details
(and make available such updates) only if there has been any activity or if any fees
have been incurred in the relevant period. The way in which we provide the
transaction information will allow you to store and reproduce the information
unchanged, for example by printing a copy. We will ensure that the details of each
Transaction will be made available for you to view online for at least 13 months from
when it is first made available.
5.6 Please ensure that you provide us with the correct Transaction details –
they may not be able to be corrected afterwards. When you make a Transaction
with us, it is your responsibility to make sure that all the Transaction
details are complete, accurate and correct (including, without limitation, the
recipient’s and their banking details) as we may not always be able to let you
change the details of your Transaction once it’s submitted to us for
processing. You may be entitled to a refund in certain circumstances and you
may cancel a valid Transaction at any time while it is pending.
5.7 Other rights available to you. You may have certain rights and
protections that are provided to you under your agreement with your Payment
Instrument provider or generally by the law with respect to the payments for a
Transaction made to your registered credit or debit card (such as Irish users
being able to potentially hold your credit card issuer liable under section 42
of the Consumer Credit Act 1995). You should consult your agreement with your
Payment Instrument provider for details on any such protections.
6.1 Service Providers. We work with local banks and other third party
outlets (each, a “Service Provider”) to make funds available to Recipients
which may be made available by bank deposit, cash collection or other methods
as we may describe via our Services. We try to provide current information on
our website about the location, availability, and hours of our Service
Providers. Please note that these may be subject to change without our knowing
and we are not responsible for any inaccurate or incomplete information that
may be posted on the website due to us being provided with inaccurate,
incomplete or out of date information. We will cancel funds made available to
Recipients by way of cash collection if they are not validly collected within
60 calendar days of when they were first made available and to the extent possible,
refund the amounts to the Payment Instrument used to send the payment (further
subject to the timings and conditions set by our payment processing partners).
6.2 Verification. Recipients will be required to prove their identities
before receiving funds by presenting valid identification. Also, Recipients may
be required to provide a reference number or another similar identifier
associated with their Transactions. The exact details required will depend on
the Recipient’s Service Provider and which may be notified to you via our
7.1 Our general right to limit your use of our Service. In addition to the
limitations described elsewhere in this Agreement, we may refuse any
Transaction where it is reasonably necessary to protect you and/or us or
otherwise required so that we comply with legal or regulatory requirements. You
agree that we may also establish general practices and limits concerning the
use of our Services, including, without limitation applying limits on the
amount to be transferred, either on a per transaction or aggregated basis.
These limits are determined by us and based on our assessment of performance
and risk factors, which may include any or all of the following: our risk
assessment of your Profile, your location, a Recipient’s location, the
registration information you provide us and our ability to verify it and any
legal requirements we may have to comply (for example, some laws of a
particular region may not allow us to provide our Services with the same
functionality that we can provide it to you). These limits may be imposed on
individual Profiles or where we have reasonably determined, based on evidence
imposed on Profiles which are linked profiles. We may also use fraud and risk
modelling when assessing the risk associated with your use of our Services
(including when you register for your Profile).

smartphone notifications, phone and SMS) unless we communicate with you in a
different manner if expedient and/or safer to do so. We will also notify you of the
reasons for such actions being taken in advance or, where we are unable to do so,
immediately after the suspension or restriction has been imposed, (unless notifying
you would be in contravention of any laws or otherwise compromise reasonable
security interests). Depending on the circumstances relating to any suspension or
stopping of your use of our Services, we may remove the suspension and/or the
restriction as soon as practicable after the reasons for the suspension and/or
restriction no longer exist. Suspension of your use of a Service will not affect your
rights and obligations pursuant to this Agreement arising before or after such
suspension or with respect to any non-terminated Services.

18.3 Reasons why we may change this Agreement. We may change the terms of
this Agreement for any or all of the following reasons:
18.4 Notifying you of changes. Any changes to the terms of this Agreement
will be made available to you by posting on our website the revised version of
this Agreement with an updated revision date (which may include us making the
current version of this Agreement available to you as part of the process of
when you submit a Transaction with us). We will aim to make available changes
to our Agreement which result in a ‘Material Change’ (see section 18.5) at a
reasonable time in advance prior to the changes coming into effect (although
this may be shorter if required under the circumstances). Please review our
Agreement each time you make a Transaction as it may have been updated since
you initially registered for our Services. By using our Services after a new or
revised Agreement has been posted on our website (including if it is made
available to you as part of the Transaction execution process) or after the end
of any ‘Material Change’ notice period, you agree to the revised Agreement. In
the event that you do not agree with any change to our Agreement, your sole and
exclusive remedy is to stop, terminate your use of the Services and /or close
your Profile by contacting us at the details set out in section 10.4.
18.5 Meaning of ‘Material Change’. A “material change” means a change which
does not include a change which:
19.1 Even if we delay in enforcing this Agreement, we can still enforce it
later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required
to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect
of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do
those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later
date. For example, if you do not pay us an amount when it is due and we do not
chase you but we continue to provide the Services, we can still require you to
make the payment at a later date.
19.2 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue
in force. Each of the sections of this Agreement operates separately. If any
court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the
remaining sections will remain in full force and effect.
19.3 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our
rights and obligations under this Agreement to another organisation. We will
contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the
transfer you may end our Agreement by closing your Profile by contacting us via
the details set out in section 10.4.
19.4 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may
only transfer your rights or your obligations under this Agreement to another
person if we expressly agree to this in writing. We may not be able to agree to
this as doing so may likely put us in breach of our legal and regulatory
obligations (including our obligations to comply with anti-money laundering
19.5 Other people that may have rights under this contract This Agreement
is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of
its terms, except as explained in sections 13 (Compensation you may owe us).
19.6 The meaning of certain words and phrases not defined elsewhere:
19.7 Our use of headings. We use headings and descriptions to highlight
what we mean in the sections which follow but they are only provided by
convenience and don’t form part of our legal agreement.
19.8 General Law. General law (for example, about
consumer protection) applies to this Agreement and the Services we provide to
you under it.
