You acknowledge that World eWallet offers an electronic payment Service and is not a bank. Our Service facilitates a display of your electronic transactions.
By initiating and sending payments through the Service or adding funds to your balance, you appoint World eWallet as your agent to obtain the funds on your behalf and transfer them to the designated receiver. When a payment is made, World eWallet processes the funds on your behalf through the banks or institutions that hold your funds. You will not be able to withdraw those funds or send those funds to any other User unless the initial transaction is verified.
When you receive funds through the Service, World eWallet processes the funds on your behalf through the banks or financial institutions that hold your funds. Funds received in your account are held in pooled bank or financial institution accounts.
World eWallet is an electronic payment processor that hosts, creates, maintains and provides the Service to you online. We do not have any control over or cannot ensure that inter transfers between other World eWallet Users will complete their transaction as we are not a party to any transaction between Users. Instead, each World eWallet User agrees to use the Service of their own accord. Furthermore, World eWallet reserves the right to correct any Errors that may occur.
You represent and warrant that all of the following are true of you and your affiliates from your entry into this Agreement until the termination of your Account:
World eWallet offers two (2) account types:
Choosing the appropriate account type is important to avoid additional fees. Failure to select the appropriate account can result in closure of your account or additional fees being charged to your account or equivalent currency.

We ask our Users to become verified to comply with the Bank Secrecy Act, the Patriot Act and any other applicable Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter- Terrorism Financing (CTF) Legislation, including PCMLTFA. You agree to complete account verification procedures when you register for a new account. If you refuse to complete account verification, your account may be suspended regardless of any or all pending or unsettled transactions, so that World eWallet will not be out of compliance with any such legislation.
You authorize World eWallet, directly or through third parties, to make necessary inquiries to verify your identity. However, World eWallet cannot and does not guarantee any World eWallet User's identity. World eWallet makes no representation or warranty to you regarding the identity of any World eWallet User.

If you have any questions regarding an “Add Funds” / “Cash In” transaction, contact World eWallet Customer Support. DO NOT CONTACT World eWallet’s banking partners because they will not be able to help you with any transactions since they do not have access to any of your account information or World eWallet system platform. If you do contact our banking partners, fines will be applied to your World eWallet account.
IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN TO DEPOSIT CASH to your World eWallet account and will result in immediate account termination. This is for PCMLTFA compliance reasons.
For security and compliance reasons, World eWallet does not allow third parties to add funds to World eWallet accounts. If funds are added from a bank account that does not list your name or your company as the primary holder, the transaction will be subjected to an additional security review and administrative fee.
If you have a past due amount owed to us or a World eWallet affiliate, subsidiary, or parent company, we may debit your Account to pay any amounts that are more than 90 Days past due.
If your Account has a negative balance, we may set-off the negative balance with any funds that you subsequently add or receive into your Account. If you have multiple currency balances in your Account and one of the currency balances becomes negative for any reason, we may set-off the negative balance by using funds you maintain in a different currency balance.
You can withdraw funds (“Cash Out”) from your World eWallet account by bank wire transfer, according to the World eWallet services available in your country.
You may withdraw funds from your Account in any of these methods:
(a) by electronically transferring funds to Accounts held by other World eWallet Users; or
(b) by electronically transferring funds to your personal bank account that is not your World eWallet Account.
If you have any questions regarding a “Withdraw Funds” / “Cash Out” transaction, contact World eWallet Customer Support. DO NOT CONTACT World eWallet’s banking partners because they will not be able to help you with any transactions since they do not have access to any of your account information or to the World eWallet system platform. If you do contact our banking partners, administrative fees will be applied to your World eWallet account.
For security and compliance reasons, if funds are transferred to a bank account that does not list your name or your company as the primary holder, the transaction will be subjected to an additional security review and administrative fee.
You may close your Account at any time. Upon Account closure, we will cancel any pending transactions and you will forfeit any balances associated with Redemption Codes, unless otherwise legally prohibited. You must withdraw your balance prior to closing your Account.
You may not evade an investigation by closing your Account. If you close your Account while we are conducting an investigation, we may hold your funds to protect World eWallet, subsidiaries and affiliates or a third party against the risk of Reversals, Claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liability. You will remain liable for all obligations related to your Account even after the Account is closed.
You are not required to carry a balance in your e-wallet. You may load funds at any time. However, if your account has a negative balance, you agree to load funds into your account forthwith to cover the negative balance. If you do not, we reserve the right to recover the funds by any means necessary, including the involvement of a collection agency or law enforcement agency.
If you do hold a balance in your e-wallet, at all times, your funds will be held separately from those of our corporation and will not be incorporated into or used for World eWallet’s operating expenses or corporate purposes.
You further understand that you will not receive interest or other earnings on the funds that World eWallet processes on your behalf through pooled bank or financial institution accounts. In consideration for your use of the Service, you irrevocably transfer and assign to World eWallet any ownership right that you may have in any interest that may accrue on funds held in pooled bank or financial institution accounts. This assignment applies only to interest earned on your funds, and nothing in this Agreement grants World eWallet any ownership right to the principal of the funds. In addition to or instead of earning interest on pooled bank or financial institution accounts, World eWallet may receive a reduction in fees or expenses charged to it by banking services by the banks or institutions that hold your funds.
When an Unauthorized Transaction or an Error occurs in your Account, we will cover you for the full amount of every eligible Unauthorized Transaction or Error so long as you follow the procedures discussed below.
An “Unauthorized Transaction” occurs when a payment is sent from your Account that you did not authorize and that did not benefit you. For example, if someone steals your password, uses the password to access your Account, and sends a payment from your Account, an Unauthorized Transaction has occurred. If you give someone access to your Account (by giving them your login information) and they conduct transactions without your knowledge or permission, you are responsible for any resulting use and loss.
If you notify us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) Business Days. During the course of our investigation, we may request additional information from you.
Once you notify us of any suspected Unauthorized Transaction or Error, or we otherwise learn of one, we will do the following:
If you erroneously send a payment to the wrong party, or send a payment for the wrong amount (based on a typographical error, for example), your only recourse will be to contact the party to whom you sent the payment and ask them to refund the payment. We will not reimburse you or reverse a payment that you have made in error.

Your World eWallet account is protected by a user name and password. As long as you keep the user name and password confidential, no one will be able to access the funds or information in your World eWallet account.

You are responsible for all Reversals, Claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liability incurred by World eWallet, a User, or a third party caused by or arising out of your breach of this Agreement, and/or your use of the World eWallet Services. You agree to reimburse World eWallet, a User, or a third party for any and all such liability.
In the event that you are liable for any amounts owed to us, we may immediately remove such amounts from your balance. If you do not have a balance that is sufficient to cover your liability, your remaining balance (if any) will be removed, your Account will have negative balance up to the amount of your liability, and you will be required to immediately Add Funds to your Balance or reimburse us through an alternative method. If you do not do so, we may engage in collection efforts to recover such amounts from you.
If we, in our sole discretion, believe that you may have engaged in any Restricted Activities, we may take various actions to protect World eWallet, its shareholders, subsidiaries and affiliates, other Users, other third parties or you from Reversals, Claims, fees, fines, penalties and any other liability. The actions we may take include but are not limited to the following:
We may, in our sole discretion, place a hold on any or all of the payments you receive when we believe there may be a high level of risk associated with you, your Account, or any or all of your transactions. Our determination may be based on different factors and we may rely on information it receives from third parties. If we place a hold on a payment, the funds will appear in your “pending balance” and the payment status will indicate the hold.
If we place a hold on any or all of the payments you receive, we will provide you with notice of our actions. We will release the hold on any payment after 30 Days from the date the payment was received into your Account unless we have a reason to continue to hold the payment such as (a) the receipt of a Dispute, Claim, or Reversal, (b) we believe that you have violated the terms of this Agreement or any other Policy and that such a violation results in the need to continue holding the funds, or (c) we believe that you may be engaging in potentially fraudulent or suspicious activity and/or transactions. In such an event, we may continue holding the payment in your Account until the matter is resolved pursuant to this Agreement. In our sole discretion, we may release the hold earlier under certain circumstances, for example when you upload tracking information of the item you shipped.
If a User files a Dispute, Claim, or Reversal on a payment you received, we may place a temporary hold on the funds in your Account to cover the amount of the liability. If you win the dispute or the transaction is eligible, we will lift the temporary hold. If you lose the dispute, we will remove the funds from your Account.
We may, in our sole discretion, place a Reserve on funds held in your Account when we believe there may be a high level of risk associated with your Account. If we place a Reserve in your Account, transactions will be shown as “pending” in your World eWallet balance, and you will not have access to funds in a “pending” status until they are cleared.
If your Account is subject to a Reserve, we will provide you with notice specifying the terms of the Reserve. The terms may require that a certain percentage of the amounts received into your Account are held for a certain period of time, or that a certain amount of money is held in Reserve, or anything else that we determine is necessary to protect against the risk associated with your Account. We may change the terms of the Reserve at any time by providing you with notice of the new terms.
In our sole discretion, we reserve the right to terminate this Agreement with you and/or access to the World eWallet Service for any reason and at any time upon notice and payment to you of any unrestricted funds held in your balance. If we limit access to your Account, including through a Reserve or hold, we will provide you with notice of our actions, and the opportunity to request restoration of access if, in our sole discretion, we deem it appropriate. Further, you acknowledge that our decision to take certain actions, including limiting access to your Account, placing holds or imposing Reserves, may be based on confidential criteria that is essential to our management of risk, the security of Users’ Accounts and the World eWallet system. You agree that we are under no obligation to disclose the details of our risk management or our security procedures to you.

If a party elects arbitration, that party will initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider mutually agreed upon by the parties.

Furthermore, we reserve the right to conduct enhanced due diligence on all clients. Please note that World eWallet reserves the right to refuse a transaction or deny operation to a client or account at any time should suspicion arise that it may be connected to money laundering, criminal activity or any other predicate offence to money laundering. World eWallet will not enter into any business arrangement with anyone or group suspected of or directly involved in money laundering, or where funds have been from either the sources or ends of an illegal activity.
In the event that World eWallet receives, during its request for documentation, deceptive documentation, contact details, business description or any other false information, World eWallet will terminate the offending account immediately. World eWallet is legally bound to report such misdemeanors to the relevant authorities, and as such the subject, business and its owners may be subject to a criminal investigation. World eWallet participates fully in the regulated anti-money laundering rules and regulations of FINTRAC (Canada) and FINCEN (USA). For customers from the European Union the EU AML Regulations are applicable. Large transactions in excess of $10,000 USD or equivalent are required to be reported to appropriate government authorities. Users are under agreement to keep their accounts and contact information current at all times. Providing false, doctored, or deceptive documents is considered as fraud and will be treated as such. Tax evasion and fraud are predicate offences to Money Laundering, and therefore, all assets derived from fraudulent transactions or suspicious activity may be seized and forfeited.
As part of the information that is collected during our verification and AML procedures, World eWallet conducts verification through world-wide databases. This includes compliance with OFAC (Office of Foreign Asset Control) requirements, United Nations (UN) global sanctions reports and government watch-lists and rigorous screening processes. At any time, due to a requirement to satisfy any of the above verification methods, a client, business entity or any of the business entity owners or affiliates may be asked a specific document or piece of information to confirm their identity or provide additional information regarding any transaction, operations or even business dealings with certain individuals, institutions and dealings in geographical locations.
Should a situation arise where the nature of the business, geographical specific regulations or account activity fall in the scope of non-compliance in any applicable law or regulation, World eWallet will inform the client, business unit or any of the business owners or affiliates of the event and occurrence(s). For any such instances, pre-verification and enhanced due diligence will be required prior to regaining active account status. In cases, where compliance is not achieved pursuing remediation measures, World eWallet will see fit to terminate the account and may report the event to the applicable law enforcement and regulatory authorities.
