If you are located in the United States, your Payment Method(s) may also function as the financial instrument used to receive funds from other users.
When you add a Payment Method to your account, you will be asked to provide billing information such as name, billing address, and financial instrument information either to Banana Pay or its third-party payment processor(s). You represent and warrant that you have all authorizations and authority necessary to use your designated Payment Method(s).

Banana Pay (through its service providers) will collect the funds for a Funds Transfer from your Payment Method in U.S. dollars. The money will be made available to a foreign correspondent to transfer the money to the final beneficiary. The foreign correspondent is responsible for delivering the Funds Transfer to the intended beneficiary in their local currency. Currencies available to make Funds Transfers may be limited for regulatory or operational reasons based on factors such as the beneficiary’s country of residence. Exchange rates appliable to your Funds Transfer will be provided to you by Banana Pay via the Services.

In addition to complying with the above, you must also comply with any relevant export control laws.
Banana Pay will take the necessary steps to rectify any payment processing errors that we become aware of. These steps may include crediting or debiting (as appropriate) the original Payment Method used or selected by you, so that you end up receiving or paying the correct amount. This may be performed by Banana Pay or a third party, such as your financial institution. We may also take steps to recover funds sent to you in error (including but not limited to an event of duplicate payments made to you due to a processing error), by reducing, setting off and/or debiting the amount of such funds from any future Funds Transfer made by you.
