7. Authorization to Charge Payment Methods on File.
You authorize us to charge any payment method we have on file for you, including your external deposit account, in the amount of any Losses we may incur related to any transaction you may enter into through, from, or adjacent to the Service, to fund the Reserve Account, or any other amount you owe us. To execute such charges, you expressly authorize us to (a) initiate individual or recurring debit entries to any bank account we have on file for you (e.g., ACH debits), and (b) charge any credit or debit card account we have on file for you. If any debit entry or charge is rejected, you agree to immediately pay the amount due directly to us and authorize us to initiate other debit entries and charges at any time and from time to time in any amount up to the amount due until the amount due is paid in full. We are not responsible for any amount you may incur from our charges, including overdraft and overlimit fees. Payment methods we have on file for you include payment methods you identify to us and payment methods we identify on our own. For purposes of this and the next section, “Losses” include chargebacks, refunds, returns, shortfalls, adjustments, settlements, losses, liabilities, damages, fines, penalties, fees, costs, and expenses.
8. Reserve Accounts; Personal Guarantee.
a) Reserve Account. Jobber may withhold funds from payouts (including Processor payouts) to you and/or require that certain sums of money be set aside and held in a reserve account to cover potential or actual Losses we believe we may incur related to your transactions, your use of the Service, your business, or to secure the performance of your obligations under any agreement between you and us, including this Agreement (a “Reserve Account“). Jobber will set the terms of your Reserve Account and notify you of such terms, which may require that a certain amount (including the full amount) of the funds received for a transaction processed through the Jobber Payments Service are held for a period of time, or that additional amounts are held in the Reserve Account. Jobber reserves the right to change the terms of the Reserve Account at any time, for any reason, including for reasons based on your payment processing history, Jobber’s own internal or external risk assessments, or as requested by the Processor.
We may require you to fund the Reserve Account by means of: (i) any funds payouts made or due to you for transactions submitted to the Jobber Payments Service; (ii) other sources of funds associated with your Jobber account; or (iii) requesting that you provide funds to us for deposit to the Reserve Account. If you do not have sufficient funds in your Reserve Account, we may fund the Reserve Account from any payment method we have on file for you. You grant us a security interest in and lien on any and all funds held in the Reserve Account, and also authorize us to make any withdrawals or debits from the Reserve Account, and charge any payment method we have on file for you, to cover any Losses, obligations, and amounts you owe us. You will execute any documents required by us to perfect our security interest in any funds in the Reserve Account or requested by us in connection with the Reserve Account.
You acknowledge and agree that: (i) you are not entitled to any interest or other compensation associated with funds held in the Reserve Account; (ii) you have no right to direct the Reserve Account; (iii) you have no legal interest in those funds or the Reserve Account; and, (iv) you may not assign any interest in those funds or the Reserve Account.
b) Personal Guarantee. Jobber may require you to provide a personal or company guarantee for amounts owed under the Jobber Payment Service Terms. We will notify you if we require you to provide a guarantee, and you will not be permitted to access the Jobber Payments Service prior to providing such guarantee.
9. Payment-Related Issues.
a) Chargebacks; Account Balance Issues & Refund Functionality.
A chargeback is a disputed charge raised by a customer which is raised with their credit card company and can be on a variety of grounds including contesting a transaction as fraudulent, unrecognized or a duplicate charge, or in relation to non-receipt of products or services or poor quality of the same. You are solely responsible for all reversed or charged back transactions, including any processing fees levied by the card company, with your customers regardless of the reason for, or timing of, the reversal or chargeback and have primary responsibility for responding to and contesting (if applicable) any chargeback in respect of a transaction to which you are a party. You can do this by contacting the applicable customer and/or submitting evidence to validate a transaction directly with the customer’s card provider.
In the event that you do not promptly address a chargeback, you hereby grant Jobber the ongoing right and authorization to collect and submit, in its sole discretion, relevant information and evidence from your Jobber account to the applicable card company in order to address any disputed charge.
b) Negative Account Balances & Repayment Plans.
For any Jobber account which has a negative balance (e.g., you provide more refunds than you receive payments and/or have a number of disputed transactions), that negative balance constitutes a debt owed to Jobber. Accordingly, the following terms apply:
i) any payments received to that account (e.g., from future customer transactions) will be applied to automatically reduce the balance;
ii) the functionality which enables the processing of refunds through the affected account may be disabled at any time by Jobber without prior notice; and
iii) you may be required by Jobber, in Jobber’s sole discretion, to address any negative balance through a repayment plan agreement. You acknowledge and agree that it is a condition of your being granted rights to use Jobber Payments Service that you will enter into a repayment plan agreement with Jobber if such a plan is deemed necessary by Jobber. If you do not enter into such a plan or fail to meet the repayment schedule in the applicable repayment plan, Jobber may terminate your account or take any other actions deemed appropriate by Jobber to the extent permitted by law.
c) Payment Disputes.
As between you and your end users, all payment disputes between you and your customers arising in connection with your use of the Jobber Payments Service are between you and such end users, and not you and Jobber or Jobber and your end users. Jobber shall not be liable or responsible in any way for any payment dispute between you and any third party that uses the Jobber Payments Service feature to process payments. You hereby agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Jobber harmless for any costs, damages, claims, losses, expenses, or liabilities incurred by Jobber in connection with any payment dispute arising between you and any end user or other third party.
10. Jobber Limitation of Liability.
The Jobber Payments Service is provided ‘as is’ and ‘as available’ without any warranties, either express, implied, or statutory. Use of the Jobber Payments Service is at your own risk. In addition to the limitations of liability set out in the Jobber Terms of Service in connection with use of the Website, App, and/or Service, because the Jobber Payments Service is provided and hosted by a third party service provider, we are not responsible for, and expressly disclaim all damages, whether direct and indirect, incidental, consequential, special, or other damages in connection with: (a) any technical issues, errors, unavailability or failures, losses, damages, loss of data, lost profits, or other losses or claims originating from or arising in connection with the Processor’s platform; (b) any unauthorized access, hacking, or tampering with or to your account or the services provided by the Processor by third parties; or (c) any software, bugs, viruses, Trojan horses, or other harmful or malicious code that may be transmitted via the Processor’s platform.
In certain circumstances detailed in the Processor Terms, the Processor may withhold or delay processing transfers and transactions and Jobber shall not be responsible in any way for any such action taken by the Processor. In addition, you specifically acknowledge that Jobber cannot ensure that your customers will complete a transaction or are authorized to do so.

e) Fee Increases. We reserve the right to revise our fees at any time and revised fees will take effect fourteen (14) days after notice of the increase has been posted on the Website. If you continue to use the Jobber Payments Service, then you are deemed to have accepted the change in fees contemplated by such notice.

12. Term and Termination.
a) Term. These Payment Service Terms are effective upon the date you agree to it (by electronically indicating acceptance) and continue so long as you use the Jobber Payments Service or until terminated by you or by Jobber in accordance with Section 12(b) below.
b) Termination. You may terminate this Agreement by closing your Jobber Payments Account at any time by following the instructions in your Jobber Admin panel. We may terminate this Agreement and close your Jobber Payments Account at any time, for any reason, upon notice to you. We may suspend your Jobber Payments Account and your access to the Jobber Payments Service and any rights in respect of your Jobber Payments Account, or terminate this Agreement, at any time, for any reason, including if: (i) we determine that you may be ineligible for the Jobber Payments Service because of the risk associated with your Jobber Payments Account, including, without limitation, significant credit or fraud risk, or for any other reason; (ii) you do not comply with any of the provisions of this Agreement or the Processor Terms; or (iii) upon request of the payment network, the Processor, or a card issuer. Termination of the Processor Terms may, at the discretion of Jobber, result in a termination of this Agreement. Termination of this Agreement shall entitle Jobber to cause the Processor to terminate the Processor Terms.
If the Processor terminates the Processor Terms or indicates its intention to do so, or if you elect to cease processing with such Processor, we have the right, but not the obligation, to offer you a substitute payment processor that is integrated with your Jobber Payments Account. Upon your acceptance of the terms of service of such substitute payment processor, they shall be deemed to have replaced the Processor contemplated herein, provided that your liabilities to the Processor herein shall not be diminished on account of accepting the terms of the substitute payment processor.
c) Effects of Termination. Upon termination and closing of your Jobber Payments Account, we will immediately discontinue your access to the Jobber Payments Service. You agree to complete all pending transactions, immediately remove all logos for cards, and stop accepting new transactions through the Jobber Payments Service. You will not be refunded the remainder of any fees that you have paid for the Jobber Payments Service if your access to or use of the Jobber Payments Service is terminated or suspended. Any funds in the Processor’s custody will be paid out to you subject to the terms of your Payout Schedule (as defined in the Processor Terms).
Termination does not relieve you of your obligations as defined in this Agreement, and the Processor may elect to continue to hold any funds deemed necessary, pending resolution of any other terms or obligations defined in this Agreement, including, but not limited to, chargebacks, fees, refunds, or other investigations or proceedings.
Termination of this Agreement will not necessarily terminate your account on the Website for the Service, unless Jobber determines otherwise.
