Notes

This is the text entitled "Commercial Entity Agreement" when you sign up for Virtual Terminal service at PayPal. The 2006-11-23 text was retrieved during the initial sign-up process; the 2006-11-29 text is apparently an amendment, and was retrieved during the log-in process, as were subsequent texts.

The only strange part is in the 11/29 text where it says that the governing laws shall be those of England and Wales.

2010-09-10 The latest text is available here.

The 2007-11-09 text seems to be for regular PayPal use, i.e. not through Virtual Terminal, although the title of the document is the same: "H. Access to Cardholder Data." states that the merchant "does not have access to Cardholder Data", when obviously a merchant using the Virtual Terminal must have this information.

Preface to agreement text (not part of the agreement)

Important: You must accept the terms below by Jun. 1, 2008 or you will be unable to accept MasterCard-funded payments.

RBS Bank is PayPal's new merchant bank partner for Business and Premier account holders who receive a large number of credit card payments. Please review and accept the updated Commercial Entity Agreement to comply with MasterCard and Visa requirements for adding a new merchant bank.

This agreement supplements, but does not replace PayPal's User Agreement and will not change how your PayPal account works. Your fees, account status, and eligibility for PayPal's Seller Protection policy remain the same.

COMMERCIAL ENTITY USER AGREEMENT FOR PAYPAL PAYMENT CARD FUNDED PROCESSING SERVICES

(Version date: 27 January 2008)

This Commercial Entity User Agreement for PayPal Payment Card Funded Processing Services (“Commercial Entity Agreement” or “CEA”) is provided to all PayPal Users that are Commercial Entities (as defined by Visa Europe, Visa Inc, Visa International, MasterCard Worldwide, UK Maestro, Solo and/or International Maestro (together the "Associations")) and open a Premier or Business Account (such use of such accounts collectively termed the “Premier/Business Service”). Each such PayPal User is hereby referred to as “Merchant” and may be referred to herein as “you” and/or “your”. This CEA constitutes your separate legally binding contract for credit and debit card processing for PayPal transactions between you and National Westminster Bank PLC and its Affiliate(s) (collectively, the “Bank”). For the purpose of this CEA, “Affiliate(s)” shall mean the financial institution(s) domiciled in the same Association region as you are domiciled in for Association purposes and which Bank has formed a relationship with in accordance with Association requirements to allow the processing of card transactions [the identity of which you can obtain on contacting PayPal]. In accordance with the provisions of this CEA, the Bank may terminate its provision of credit and debit card processing services and enforce any of the provisions of Merchant’s PayPal Payment Processing Agreement (also known as the PayPal User Agreement) (“PPA”), agreed by and between Merchant and PayPal. In this CEA “we”, “us” and “our” refer to Bank.

Merchant agrees to the terms and conditions of this CEA. Merchant further agrees that this CEA forms a legally binding contract between Merchant and Bank. This Commercial Entity Agreement may be amended at any time by us via PayPal posting a revised version of the CEA on the PayPal website(s). The revised version will be effective at the time PayPal posts it. If we propose to change this CEA in a substantial manner, we will provide you with at least 30 days' prior notice of such a change by posting notice on the "Policy Updates" page of PayPal's web site(s). After this 30 days' notice, you will be considered as having expressly consented to all amendments to the CEA. If you disagree with those proposed amendments, you may close your account before the expiry of such 30 day period in accordance with the terms of the PPA and this CEA will terminate on the closure of your account. For the purpose of the CEA a change to this CEA will be considered to be made in a “substantial manner” if the change involves a reduction to your rights or increases your responsibilities.

1. Purpose of this CEA.

When your customers pay you through PayPal, they have the option of paying you through a funding source offered on the PayPal website including a card funded payment. In most instances, you will not know the funding source that your customer selected. Since you may be the recipient of a card funded payment, the Associations require that you enter into a direct contractual relationship with a bank who is a member of the Associations. By entering into this CEA, you are fulfilling such Association requirement and you are agreeing to comply with Association rules as they pertain to payments you receive through the PayPal service.

2. Association Rules.

A. Deposit Transactions. Merchant agrees that it shall only accept payments through PayPal Processing Services for bona fide transactions between the Merchant and its customer for the sale of goods or services. Merchant shall not submit a transaction for the refinance or transfer of an existing obligation that was uncollectible. Merchant acknowledges that for Visa and MasterCard payments, PayPal shall obtain an authorization for transaction amounts prior to completing the transaction.

B. Split Transactions. Merchant agrees to submit a single transaction for the full amount of each sale. Except, however in an instance where the Merchant and cardholder agree on a partial shipment of product, or where the transaction qualifies for delayed delivery or special order deposits (such as partial shipments based on inventory on hand), a sale may be split into multiple transactions.

C. Minimum or Maximum/Surcharges. Merchant agrees that it shall not set minimum or maximum transaction amounts or impose surcharges as a condition of honoring Visa and MasterCard cards.

D. Visa and MasterCard Marks. Merchant is authorized to use the Visa and MasterCard logos or marks only on Merchant’s promotional materials and website to indicate that Visa and MasterCard cards are accepted as funding sources for PayPal transactions.

E. Credit Vouchers. Credit vouchers may only be submitted for the purpose of refunding a prior transaction from the same card.

F. Cash Disbursements. Merchant agrees that if it sells travelers cheques or foreign currency that disbursements shall be limited to the value of cheques, Visa TravelMoney, or currency sold in a single transaction, plus any applicable commissions.

G. Discrimination. Merchant agrees that it shall not engage in any acceptance practice that discriminates against or discourages the use of Visa or MasterCard in favor of any other card brand.

H. Access to Cardholder Data. Merchant acknowledges that it does not have access to Cardholder Data (defined as the cardholder’s account number, expiration date, and CVV2) and will not request access to Cardholder Data from either PayPal or the cardholder. In the event that Merchant receives Cardholder Data in connection with the PayPal Processing Services provided under this Agreement, Merchant agrees that it will not use the Cardholder Data for any purpose that it knows or should know to be fraudulent or in violation of any Association Rules. Merchant also agrees that it will not sell, purchase, provide or exchange in any manner or disclose Cardholder Data to anyone other than its acquirer, Visa or MasterCard (as applicable) or in response to a government request. In the event that Merchant receives Cardholder Data, it will promptly notify Bank and PayPal of such.

I. Merchant Identifi cation. Merchant agrees to prominently and unequivocally inform the cardholder of the identity of the Merchant at all points of interaction.

J. Chargebacks. Merchant shall use all reasonable methods to resolve disputes with the cardholder. Should a chargeback dispute occur, Merchant shall promptly comply with all requests for information from PayPal. Merchant shall not attempt to recharge a cardholder for an item that has been charged back to the cardholder, unless the cardholder has authorized such actions.

3. Merchant's Refund Policy Must Be on Merchant's Website.

If Merchant limits refund/exchange terms or other specific conditions for Card sales, Merchant’s policy must be clearly provided to the cardholder prior to the sale and Merchant must conform with all applicable laws and the Association Rules.

4. Term and Termination.

This CEA is effective upon the date Merchant agrees to the CEA and continues so long as the PPA remains in force between Merchant and PayPal but shall automatically terminate without notice on termination of such PPA for any reason, provided that those terms which by their nature are intended to survive termination (including without limitation, indemnification obligations and limitations of liability) shall survive. This CEA may be terminated by Bank at any time based on a breach of any of Merchant’s obligations under this CEA or the PPA, or by Merchant based on a breach of any of Bank’s obligations under this CEA, or by the Bank based on the termination of the acquiring services agreement entered into between PayPal (or its applicable group company) and Bank as notified to the Merchant.

5. Indemnification.

Merchant agrees to indemnify and hold Bank harmless from and against all losses, liabilities, damages and expense: (a) resulting from any breach of any warranty, covenant or agreement or any misrepresentation by Merchant under this CEA; (b) arising out of Merchant’s or its employees’ negligence or willful misconduct, (c) arising in connection with Card transactions or otherwise arising from Merchant’s provision of goods and services to Cardholders or customers; (d) arising out of Merchant’s use of the PayPal Service; or (e) resulting from any [Fines] or arising out of any third party indemnifications Bank is obligated to make as a result of Merchant’s actions (including indemnification of any Association or Issuing Bank).

6. Assignment/Amendments.

This CEA may not be assigned by Merchant without the prior written consent of Bank. Bank may assign its rights under this CEA without Merchant’s consent.

Notwithstanding anything in this CEA to the contrary, in no event shall Bank be liable or responsible for any delays or errors in its performance of the services caused by our service providers or other parties or events outside of Bank's reasonable control, including PayPal. Notwithstanding anything in this CEA to the contrary, Bank's cumulative liability for all losses, claims, suits, controversies, breaches or damages for any cause whatsoever arising out of or related to this CEA and regardless of the form of action or legal theory and whether or not arising in contract or tort (including negligence shall not exceed the total volume of all transactions, expressed as a U.S. dollar amount processed by the Merchant under this CEA via PayPal. Nothing in this CEA shall exclude or limit any liability of any party for death or personal injury caused by negligence or fraud, deceit or fraudulent misrepresentation, howsoever caused.

9. Waiver.

The failure of a party to assert any of its rights under this CEA, including, but not limited to, the right to terminate this CEA in the event of breach or default by the other party, will not be deemed to constitute a waiver by that party of its right to enforce each and every provision of this CEA in accordance with its terms.

10.Relationship between the Parties.

No agency, partnership, joint venture or employment relationship is created between Merchant and Bank by way of this CEA. In the performance of their respective obligations hereunder, the parties are, and will be, independent contractors. Nothing in this CEA will be construed to constitute either party as the agent for the other for any purpose whatsoever. Neither party will bind, or attempt to bind, the other party to any contract or the performance of any obligation, and neither party will represent to any third party that it has any right to enter into any binding obligation on the other party's behalf.

12. Severability

Whenever possible, each provision of this CEA will be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision hereof will be prohibited by or determined to be invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision will be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of this CEA.

13. Governing Law.

This CEA (and the relationships referred to or contemplated by it) shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws as set out as the governing laws of the PPA which the Merchant has agreed to.

1. Purpose of this CEA

When your customers pay you through PayPal, they have the option of paying you through a funding source offered on the PayPal website including a credit card funded payment.

Proper disclosure would include wording that is prominently displayed and states "NO REFUND, EXCHANGE ONLY" or something substantially similar and includes any special terms.

4. Term and Termination.

Preface

This explanation was not part of the actual agreement.

Important Account Information: You must agree to the new terms below by Feb. 1, 2007. Effective Feb. 1, 2007, your PayPal account will no longer be able to accept MasterCard funded credit card payments unless you agree to the terms below.

PayPal has added a new partner merchant bank, HSBC Bank plc. In order to comply with MasterCard and Visa requirements for adding a new merchant bank, we ask that you accept the updated Commercial Entity User Agreement For Credit Card Processing Services ("Commercial Entity Agreement”). This is for PayPal members who receive a large number of credit card payments. This supplementary agreement replaces your existing Card Processing Agreement, but does not replace PayPal’s existing User Agreement and will NOT change the way your PayPal account works. Your account’s fees and status will remain the same, as will your eligibility for protection under PayPal’s Seller Protection Policy.

The Commercial Entity Agreement is included below. Please read it for further details.

COMMERCIAL ENTITY USER AGREEMENT FOR CREDIT CARD PROCESSING SERVICES

This Commercial Entity User Agreement for Credit Card Processing Services ("Commercial Entity Agreement" or "CEA") is provided to all PayPal Users that meet the definition of "Commercial Entities" or the equivalent under Association Rules (defined below) and that open and use a Premier or Business Account (such use of such accounts collectively termed the "Premier/Business Service"). (Each such entity or person receiving this document is hereby referred to as "Merchant"). This CEA constitutes Merchant's separate legally binding contract for credit card processing between (1) Merchant, as a Commercial Entity; and (2) Member (which is HSBC Bank plc or any member of the group of companies of which HSBC Holdings plc is the holding company or any relevant third party with which any such HSBC company shares a Bank Identification Number (BIN) in the Merchant’s country of residence) for MasterCard and Visa transactions acquired for Merchants. Member may terminate its provision of credit card processing services and enforce or rely on any term or provision of the Merchant’s PayPal User Agreement ("PUA"), all of which Member considers relevant are incorporated in this CEA by reference. In this CEA "we", "us" and "our" refer to Member. Any reference to the PUA shall mean the PayPal User Agreement made between Merchant and PayPal.

By accepting the Commercial Entity Agreement, Merchant agrees to the terms and conditions of this CEA and any documents incorporated by reference. Merchant further agrees that this CEA forms a legally binding contract between Merchant and Member. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by Member. Descriptions of material amendments to this CEA will be provided as applicable. Any capitalised terms used in this CEA and not otherwise defined shall have the meanings set forth in the PUA.

This agreement was last modified on September 15, 2005.

1. Association Rules.

1.1. Deposit Transactions. Merchant agrees that it shall only submit card transactions that directly results from bona fide cardholder transactions with that Merchant. Merchant agrees that it will not submit a transaction until Merchant: (i) obtains an authorisation, (ii) completes the transaction, and either: (iii) ships or provides goods, (iv) performs the purchased service, or (v) obtains the cardholder’s consent for a recurring transaction.

1.2. Anti Money Laundering. Merchant agrees that it shall not submit a transaction that does not result from a purchase of goods or services between the cardholder and Merchant.

1.3. Split Transactions. Split sales transactions are not allowed. Specifically, Merchant agrees that it will not use two or more sales transaction receipts for a single transaction to avoid or circumvent authorisation limits, or monitoring programs.

1.5. Surcharges. Merchant agrees that it will not impose surcharges on debit card transactions.

1.6. Visa and MasterCard Marks. Merchant is authorised to use the Visa and MasterCard logos or marks only on Merchant’s promotional materials and website to indicate that Visa and MasterCard cards are accepted as payment for the business goods and services. Merchant agrees that it shall not use the logos and marks either directly or indirectly, to imply that Visa or MasterCard endorses Merchant’s goods or services; nor may Merchant refer to Visa or MasterCard when stating eligibility requirements for purchasing its products, services, or memberships.

1.7. Credit Vouchers. Credit vouchers may not be submitted for non-credit transactions. Merchant agrees that it shall not: (i) accept a payment from a card holder for the purpose of depositing funds to the cardholder’s account, or (ii) process a credit transaction without having completed a previous debit transaction with the same cardholder.

1.8. Cash Disbursements. Merchant agrees that if it sells travellers cheques or foreign currency that Disbursements shall be limited to the value of cheques, Visa TravelMoney, or currency sold in a single transaction, plus any applicable commissions.

1.13. Merchant Identification. Merchant agrees to prominently and unequivocally inform the cardholder of the identity of the Merchant at all points of interaction so that the cardholder readily can identify the transaction.

2. Card Associations.

Visa U.S.A., Inc. and Visa International (“Visa”) and MasterCard International Incorporated (“MasterCard”) (the “Associations”) have developed rules and regulations (the “Association Rules”) that govern their member banks and merchants in the procedures, responsibilities and allocation of risk for payments made through the Associations. By accepting this CEA, Merchant is agreeing to comply with all such Association Rules.

3. Merchant’s Refund Policy must be on Merchant’s Website. If Merchant limits refund/exchange terms or other specific conditions for Card sales, Merchant’s POLICY MUST BE CLEARLY PROVIDED TO THE CARDHOLDER PRIOR TO THE SALE AND AS PART OF YOUR SALE CONFIRMATION PROCESS. PROPER DISCLOSURE WOULD INCLUDE WORDING THAT IS PROMINANTLY DISPLAYED AND STATES “NO REFUND, EXCHANGE ONLY”, OR SOMETHING SUBSTANTIALLY SIMILAR AND INCLUDES ANY SPECIAL TERMS. NOTE: QUALIFYING YOUR REFUND OR EXCHANGE TERMS DOES NOT COMPLETELY ELIMINATE YOUR liability for a refund because consumer protection laws and Association Rules frequently allow the cardholder to still dispute these items. In particular, by implementing Directive 97/7/EC many European Union member states will have distance selling regulations which allow a consumer to cancel its contract with the Merchant within a defined period and receive a refund.

4. Term and Termination.

This CEA is effective upon the date Merchant accepts the terms and conditions set out herein and continues so long as Merchant uses the PayPal Service (“Services”) or until terminated by Merchant or Member, provided that those terms which by their nature are intended to survive termination (including without limitation, indemnification and chargeback obligations and limitations of liability) shall so survive termination. This CEA may be terminated by Member at any time based on a breach of any of Merchant’s obligations hereunder or for any other reason that Member deems exceptional.

This CEA will terminate automatically upon any termination of Merchant’s PUA.

5. Indemnification.

Merchant agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Member harmless from and against all losses, liabilities, damages and expenses (including legal fees and collection costs) which the Member or their affiliates or agents may suffer or incur arising from any breach of any warranty, covenant or misrepresentation by Merchant under this CEA, or arising as a result of any tortious conduct by Merchant or Merchant’s employees or agents, in connection with Card transactions or otherwise arising from Merchant’s provision of goods and services to cardholders or from any contravention of any legal requirements.

6. Arbitration.

Any dispute with respect to this CEA between Merchant and HSBC Bank plc, including a dispute as to the validity or existence of this CEA and/or this clause, shall be resolved by arbitration in London, England, conducted in English by a single arbitrator in accordance with the ICC Rules. The parties agree to waive any right of appeal against the arbitration award. In the event of a failure by the parties to agree on the sole arbitrator within 30 days of one party calling upon the other to do so, one shall be appointed by the ICC.

7. Assignment/Amendments.

This CEA may not be assigned by Merchant without the prior written consent of Member. Member may assign their rights under this CEA without Merchant’s consent. This CEA may be amended by Member as provided under the PUA.

8. Warranty Disclaimer.

This CEA is a service agreement. We disclaim all representations or warranties, express or implied, made to merchant or any other person, including without limitation, any warranties regarding quality, suitability, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or otherwise of any services or any goods provided incidental to the services provided under this CEA to the extent permitted by law.

9. Limitation of Liability.

1. Association Rules.

A. Deposit Transactions. Merchant agrees that it shall deposit only transactions that directly results from bona fide cardholder transactions with that Merchant. Merchant agrees that it will not deposit a transaction until Merchant: (i) obtains an authorization, (ii) completes the transaction, and either: (iii) ships or provides goods, (iv) performs the purchased service, or (v) obtains the cardholder’s consent for a recurring transaction.

B. Anti Money Laundering. Merchant agrees that it shall not deposit a transaction that does not result from a purchase of goods or services between the cardholder and Merchant.

C. Split Transactions. Split sales transactions are not allowed. Specifically, Merchant agrees that it will not use two or more sales transaction receipts for a single transaction to avoid or circumvent authorization limits, or monitoring programs.

D. Minimum or Maximum. Merchant agrees that it shall not set minimum or maximum transaction amounts as a condition of honoring Visa and MasterCard cards.

E. Surcharges. Merchant agrees that it will not impose surcharges on transactions.

F. Visa and MasterCard Marks. Merchant is authorized to use the Visa and MasterCard logos or marks only on Merchant’s promotional materials and website to indicate that Visa and MasterCard cards are accepted as payment for the business goods and services. Merchant agrees that it shall not use the logos and marks either directly or indirectly, to imply that Visa or MasterCard endorses Merchant’s goods or services; nor may Merchant refer to Visa or MasterCard when stating eligibility requirements for purchasing its products, services, or memberships.

G. Credit Vouchers. Credit vouchers may not be submitted for noncredit transactions. Merchant agrees that it shall not: (i) accept a payment from a card holder for the purpose of depositing funds to the cardholder’s account, or (ii) process a credit transaction without having completed a previous debit transaction with the same cardholder.

H. Cash Disbursements. Merchant agrees that if it sells travelers cheques or foreign currency that Disbursements shall be limited to the value of cheques, Visa TravelMoney, or currency sold in a single transaction, plus any applicable commissions. Merchant agrees that under no circumstances shall a Visa or MasterCard transaction represent collection of a dishonored check.

I. Authorization Requirements. Merchant agrees to obtain an authorization for transaction amounts above the specified floor limits required by Visa and MasterCard.

J. Discrimination. Merchant agrees that it shall not engage in any acceptance practice that discriminates against or discourages the use of Visa or MasterCard in favor of any other acceptance brand.

K. Present Transactions within 30 Business Days. Merchant agrees that a debit transaction shall not be presented until after the goods are shipped, or services provided, unless, at the time of the transaction, the cardholder agrees to a properly disclosed delayed delivery of the goods or services. Merchant agrees that when it receives authorization for delayed presentment, the words "Delayed Presentment" or something substantially similar must be disclosed to the cardholder.

L. Exchange of Cardholder and Account Data Prohibited. Merchant agrees that it will not sell, purchase, provide or exchange in any manner or disclose Visa or MasterCard account number information to anyone other than its acquirer, Visa or MasterCard (respectively) or in response to a government request.

M. Fraudulent or Unauthorized Use of Account Information Prohibited. Merchant agrees that it shall not request or use Visa or MasterCard account number information for any purpose that it knows or should have known to be fraudulent or in violation of Visa and MasterCard standards, Association Rules, the PPA, or this CEA, or for any purpose that the cardholder did not authorize.

N. Merchant Identification. Merchant agrees to prominently and unequivocally inform the cardholder of the identity of the Merchant at all points of interaction so that the cardholder readily can identify the transaction.

2. Card Associations. Visa U.S.A., Inc. and Visa International ("Visa") and MasterCard International Incorporated ("MasterCard") are associations of banks that electronically exchange sales records for credits and debits and reversals of sale transactions. Visa and MasterCard may be referred to in this CEA as the "Associations." Sales records are electronically transferred from banks that acquire them from sellers such as the Merchant (these banks are referred to as "Acquirers") through the appropriate Association, to the bank that issued the buyer’s credit card (these banks are referred to as "Issuers" or "Issuing Banks," and the buyers using credit cards are "Cardholders"). The Issuing Banks then bill their Cardholders for the transactions. The Associations have developed rules and regulations (the "Association Rules") that govern their member banks and merchants in the procedures, responsibilities and allocation of risk for payments made through the Associations. By accepting this CEA, Merchant is agreeing to comply with all such Association Rules.

3. Merchant’s Refund Policy must be on Merchant’s Website. If Merchant limits refund/exchange terms or other specific conditions for Card sales, Merchant’s POLICY MUST BE CLEARLY PROVIDED TO THE CARDHOLDER PRIOR TO THE SALE AND AS PART OF YOUR SALE CONFIRMATION PROCESS. PROPER DISCLOSURE WOULD INCLUDE WORDING THAT IS PROMINANTLY DISPLAYED AND STATES "NO REFUND, EXCHANGE ONLY", OR SOMETHING SUBSTANTIALLY SIMILAR AND INCLUDES ANY SPECIAL TERMS. NOTE: QUALIFYING YOUR REFUND OR EXCHANGE TERMS DOES NOT COMPLETELY ELIMINATE YOUR liability for a refund because consumer protection laws and Association Rules frequently allow the Cardholder to still dispute these items.

4. Term and Termination. This CEA is effective upon the date Merchant signed the PPA and continues so long as Merchant uses the PayPal Service ("Services") or until terminated by Merchant, Member, or WFMS, provided that those terms which by their nature are intended to survive termination (including without limitation, indemnification obligations and limitations of liability) shall continue in perpetuity.
