RECURRING PAYMENTS

A Recurring Payment is a payment in which you provide an advance authorisation to a third party merchant to charge your PayPal account directly on a one-time, regular, or sporadic basis. Recurring Payments are sometimes called “Subscriptions”, “Automatic Payments” or “Preapproved Payments”. If your third party initiated payment requires a currency conversion by us, the amount of the currency conversion fee will be determined at the time the applicable third party processes your payment and completes the transaction. You acknowledge that the exchange rate determined at the time of each payment transaction will differ and you agree to the future execution of third party initiated payments being based on fluctuating exchange rates. Third parties who present us with a payment request under this provision, warrant to PayPal that the amounts they present have been agreed and consented to by the User whose Account will be deducted (including changes to those amounts). Third parties who present us with a payment request under this provision also agree that they will notify their customers at in advance of the amount they will collect if that amount has increased in such a manner that the customer could not have reasonably expected to pay such an amount, taking into account that customer’s previous spending patterns and the circumstances of the payment.

BILLING AGREEMENT

When you establish a Recurring Payment with a merchant, you are also entering into a Billing Agreement with PayPal. By entering into a Billing Agreement you are authorizing PayPal to allow the Merchant to charge your PayPal account directly. PayPal facilitates the transaction between you and the Merchant, but does not enforce contractual obligations for payment by you or for delivery of goods or services by the Merchant.

FUNDING SOURCES SELECTION

When the Merchant requests a payment from your PayPal account, PayPal will always attempt to withdraw funds from your PayPal balance first. If funds in your balance are insufficient, PayPal will look for and attempt to charge a preferred funding source that you have set up for the Recurring Payment. You will have the option to select a preferred funding source during enrolment, and you can update or change your preferred funding Source at any time via the Account Profile section on the PayPal website.

If the preferred funding source fails (for example, a credit or debit card expires), then PayPal will use other available funding sources within your PayPal account. You will have the ability to disable funding sources for your Recurring Payment, with the exception that if you have one or more credit or debit cards linked to your PayPal account, then at least one of those cards must be enabled for billing.

CANCELLING RECURRING PAYMENTS

You may cancel a Recurring Payment at any time up to 3 working days prior to the date the payment is scheduled to take place. If your payment is funded by your bank account, then you may cancel this payment following notice of the payment to be made by contacting PayPal customer support via email or telephone. To cancel a Recurring Payment generally, log into your account, access the "My Account" tab, then access the "Profile" tab, the access the "Financial Information" column and click on "Billing Agreements" and follow the instructions to cancel the payment. If your Recurring Payment is not in this column, then access the "History" tab instead of the "Profile" tab and access "Subscriptions" and follow the directions to cancel the payment. Recurring Payments are sometimes referred to as "subscriptions" or "preapproved payments". If you cancel a Recurring Payment you may still be liable to the merchant for the payment and be required to pay the merchant through alternative means.
