- When you receive your Joompay Card, you must use the Joompay Application to activate the Joompay Card.

We will, if possible, inform you before stopping, suspending or restricting your Joompay Card or PIN that we intend to do so and the reasons for doing this. If we are unable to do so then we will inform you immediately afterwards. The requirement to inform you does not apply where it would compromise reasonable security measures or it would be unlawful to do so.

Payment Services Information
- This condition 11 only applies if the Acquirer is located within the European Economic Area (EEA).
- We will ensure that a transaction you make is credited to the Acquirer, or that returned funds following redemption or cancellation are credited to your bank by the end of the Business Day following the day on which the transaction order is received by us it being understood that any instruction received by us after 3 pm on a Business Day or on a non Business Day is deemed received on the next Business Day.
- If you use your Joompay Card or provide your Joompay Card details to a Merchant to make a transaction before you know the amount which is going to be charged to your Joompay Card, we will not block funds on your Joompay Card unless you authorise the exact amount to be blocked. This could be the case for payments you make at hotels for example. We shall release any blocked funds without undue delay as soon as we are aware of the exact amount of the payment transaction and immediately after receipt of the relevant payment order.
- On receipt of such a request under Clause 11.3, we may require you to provide us with the information to ascertain whether the conditions in Clause 11.3 have been met. Within 10 business days of receiving a request from you under Clause 11.3 or of receiving any additional information required under this paragraph, we will provide a refund or justify why we are refusing the request.
- We are liable for the correct execution of the Account Transaction unless we can prove that it was received by the Acquirer, in which case the Acquirer is liable to the Merchant. You may request that we make immediate efforts to trace an incorrectly executed transaction and notify you of the outcome.
- When a Merchant initiates a transaction it is the Acquirer which is liable for the correct transmission of the relevant details to us. If the Acquirer can prove that it is not responsible for a transaction which has failed or has been incorrectly executed, we will be responsible to you.
- If we are responsible for an incorrect amount of the Account Transaction being deducted from your balance, we will correct the error. If we are responsible for the Account Transaction being deducted from your balance which you did not authorise, we will refund the amount of the transaction to your balance and treat the transaction as if it had never occurred. You must inform us of an unauthorised or incorrect transaction immediately on becoming aware of it and in any event no later than 13 months after the debit date. If you do not do so, we may not be liable and your silence will be deemed as approval and ratification and the information provided to you will be deemed to be irrevocably correct so that you cannot directly or indirectly challenge these Account Transactions. In case you do not notify us within 10 business days upon becoming aware of the relevant transactions you will not be considered as having notified us immediately as required by this Clause.
- We are not liable if you incorrectly identify the Merchant under a transaction. The details you provide to identify the Merchant are considered a unique identifier. In such a case, we will make reasonable efforts to recover the funds involved.
- We can return to the payee money paid to your Joompay Account by mistake, however, if you do not think a payment made to you from a payment service provider in the EEA was a mistake, you expressly allow us to share your personal information with the payment service provider of the payee so that you can be contacted directly to solve the issue. This is because we are required to cooperate with other payment service providers and share all relevant information in order to assist with tracing money which is sent to the wrong person.
- If you are able to make payments directly from your Joompay Account to another person and if a payment you asked us to make within the EEA arrives later than it should have, you can ask us to contact the receiving bank and ask them to treat it as if it was made on time.
- We reserve the right to reverse or charge back any transaction performed via the Joompay Card.
- You agree to be bound by all Card Scheme rules.
