Such notice will be provided to your email address included in your Merchant profile.
6.2 Digital Wallet Security
Shoppers sending cryptocurrency payments and Merchants receiving settlements in cryptocurrency need to have a digital wallet. A digital wallet is a piece of software enabling a user to store encrypted private keys, used to sign transactions to access funds.
Oobit is not responsible for, and cannot assist with recovery of, a loss of cryptocurrency funds incurred by a Merchant or Shopper if a wallet is compromised, for example due to loss of or unauthorized access to private keys, accidental sharing of a backup, a bug in the user's device or the wallet software, or a malicious attack on the wallet software.
In the event your account balance gets settled to a wallet that becomes compromised or inaccessible, or in the event a Shopper's wallet becomes compromised or inaccessible, it is up to you to decide how to handle any inquiries or potential claims. Oobit does not get involved in resolving such issues.
7. Privacy and Data Protection
Our Privacy Notice, including our GDPR terms, is available at https://www.oobit.com/privacy , and is incorporated by reference into these Terms.
8. Ownership and Use of Services and Intellectual Property
You agree and acknowledge that we own all right, title, and interest in the Services, the associated software, technology tools and content, the Oobit service marks and logos, the Oobit website, the content displayed on the website, and other materials produced by Oobit (collectively, “Oobit IP”). You are only permitted to use the Services and Oobit IP to offer the Services to your Shoppers, according to these Terms. We grant you a personal, limited, revocable, non-exclusive and non-transferable license to use Oobit IP. You shall not rent, lease, sublicense, distribute, transfer, copy, reproduce, download, display, modify or timeshare Oobit IP or any portion thereof, or use Oobit IP as a component of or a base for products or services prepared for commercial sale, sublicense, lease, access or distribution. You shall not prepare any derivative work based on Oobit IP, nor shall you translate, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble Oobit IP.
9. Advertising and Marketing
You represent and warrant to us that you have the right to provide the Content to us, and that the use, copying, modification and publication of the Content by us: (a) will not infringe, violate or misappropriate any third-party copyright, patent, trade secret or other proprietary rights, (b) will not infringe any rights of publicity or privacy, and (c) will not be defamatory or otherwise violate any law.
10.1 Invoice Generation and Competitive Exchange Rate Guarantee for Your Shopper
In order to accept a cryptocurrency payment, you need to create a payment request (“Invoice”) using the Services, based on the amount you want to collect in your settlement currency, or in any of the supported cryptocurrencies. Oobit's hosted invoice user interface must be displayed to the Shopper during checkout.
When Oobit processes payments, we use Oobit's exchange rate. Once a shopper starts the payment process on Oobit's checkout page, the Shopper will receive a limited time frame, displayed by a timer, on the QR code page. The Shopper has to complete the transaction by the end of the displayed time frame.
While we guarantee the exchange rate for the Shopper as long as the Shopper pays within such a time window, you agree that you assume the volatility risk of your settlement currency. For example, if you ask us to collect 75.00 Euro and the Shopper sends the cryptocurrency equivalent within the time window, we guarantee you will receive exactly 75.00 Euro, minus our fee, but we do not guarantee the future value of the Euro (or any other fiat currency) relative to any benchmark. Similarly, if you elect to receive some or all of your settlement in cryptocurrency, we do not guarantee the future value of that cryptocurrency relative to any benchmark.
10.2 Invoice Completion
An Invoice is considered “complete” by us if it has been fully paid by the Shopper, the corresponding transaction has reached our required number of block confirmations, and the payment has been credited to your Account.
The number of confirmations required for a transaction depends on several factors, including the blockchain being used and our internal analysis of risk.
We employ risk mitigation techniques such as Eliptic, a Blockchain Analytics service to detect fraudulent payments, such as payments that are at risk of never receiving the required number of block confirmations. However, these measures do not completely eliminate the risk associated with unconfirmed payments.
A confirmed Invoice means that payment has been made and the required block confirmations have occurred, such that the transaction has passed our risk validation measures, but it still needs to be credited to your Account.
You have the option to inform your Shopper that you have accepted the Invoice as paid before Oobit deems the Invoice completed, e.g. an Invoice payment that is not confirmed. Oobit is not liable for settling Invoices which are not considered fully paid and complete. In other words, if you accept a payment before it is credited by us to your Account ledger, we are not required to settle with you if we determine that the payment was fraudulent or otherwise invalid.
10.3 Oobit Supported Cryptocurrencies
Oobit may add new cryptocurrencies to the Services. Additional cryptocurrencies will be added to the Services on an opt-out basis, such that they will be enabled by default unless you instruct Oobit to disable them. In addition, there may be circumstances that cause Oobit to decide to remove a particular cryptocurrency as a payment option.
10.4 Payment Exceptions
On the QR code (payment page) in the Oobit App, few scenarios may occur ("Payment Exceptions"):
- -"Payment Paid On-time" - payment process was successfully completed.
- -"Invoice Paid Out of time" - the payment was received out of the allocated time frame and partial fees are missing to complete full payment.
- -"Partial payment" - partial payment was received and fees are missing to complete full payment.
- -"No payment detected" - No payment was detected by Oobit.
- -"Timed Out" - payment time has expired.
Shoppers will automatically receive a notification via email and/or SMS messaging and/or push notification from Oobit in order to claim the missing fees as applicable.
10.4.1 Partial payment
Partial payment cannot fulfill an Invoice in full. To complete the transaction, the Shopper will need to click on the "Complete payment" option and complete the transaction. In case the time frame for payment was expired, the Shopper will have to generate a new invoice. The new Invoice will provide the Shopper with a new payment amount based on the then-current exchange rate and a new time window in which to complete the payment.
10.4.4 Unsupported Payments
Unless explicitly mentioned on our website or in this Agreement, we do not support or process payments for unsupported coins, tokens, or blockchain forks, collectively known as “Unsupported Payments” ("Unsupported Payments"). Shoppers should not pay an Invoice with Unsupported Payments. If a Shopper transmits Unsupported Payments, the Shopper may lose any perceived value in the Unsupported Payments. Additionally, Oobit assumes no responsibility whatsoever with respect to Unsupported Payments and Shoppers will not be able to recover Unsupported Payments from Oobit.
10.5 Delayed Settlement
If we need to conduct an investigation or resolve any pending dispute related to your Account, or if required by law, court order, or at the request of law enforcement, we may delay settlement or restrict access to settlement funds. In the case of a delayed settlement, we will strive to promptly inform you, unless prohibited by court order or law enforcement. We will not be liable to you for any damages or harm caused as a result of such delayed settlement or restricted access. Unless required to delay settlement by law, we are committed to not delay or restrict settlement unnecessarily, and if partial delay or restriction is possible, we will only partially delay or restrict. Once the reasons for delayed settlement or restricted access to settlement funds can be reasonably proven to have been resolved, Oobit will pay the full amount of such funds to you without undue delay.
10.6 Account Information
You will have access to Account information via your dashboard detailing the following:
- -Activity overview
- -Full transactions details
- -Setting, include the tech details that are needed for integration, an option to link a bank account for settlement, and more.
You can connect to the service (technically) by a simple API. Should you identify an error, please notify us as soon as possible.
11.1 General Procedures
Oobit can facilitate cryptocurrency refunds to Shoppers on your behalf. You can decide to issue a partial refund or refund the full amount of the initial purchase. You can also decide whether to issue the refund based upon the value in which the relevant goods and/or services were priced (pricing currency) or the amount of the applicable cryptocurrency used to pay the Invoice (payment currency). Refunds will be remitted in the same cryptocurrency used to pay the Invoice. If you do not have enough funds in your Account to cover pending refund requests, we may require you to make a bank deposit to an account specified by us. Any required currency conversion during the refund process will be calculated at a spot rate determined by us.
11.2 Disclosure of Merchant Refund Policy
Oobit is not responsible for merchant refund policies, or for verifying that such policies conform to applicable law. We suggest merchants provide a clear refund policy to their customers (including, if applicable, “no refunds are allowed as all sales are final”). For certain industries, a refund policy may not be applicable (e.g., where a service is provided). For refunds in amounts based upon the fiat pricing currency (i.e., the fiat price for the applicable goods/services), Oobit will convert the value of the currency in which the item was priced to the applicable cryptocurrency using the exchange rate at the time the refund is sent to the Shopper.
12.1 Shopper Complaints
If we receive a complaint from a Shopper and it relates to you or the purchased goods/services, we will send it to you for resolution. We reserve the right to terminate Merchant accounts that receive excessive complaints (see Section 4.7.2, Our Right to Decline, Suspend, or Close Your Account).
12.2 Merchant Complaints
Merchants that wish to register complaints regarding our Services should contact us via: firstname.lastname@example.org
13.1 Methods of Settlement
The settlement will be made automatically by us once a month to your bank account according to the details you have provided. Oobit will clear payments from your Shoppers to you over the cryptocurrency peer-to-peer payment network and credit your Bank account according to the details you established in your Dashboard. The debits and credits to your Account are funds temporarily held by Oobit until settlement to your bank account can take place. You will receive all settlement in Euro to your bank account. You can choose whether to be exposed to the exchange rate of any cryptocurrency received from a specific transaction or convert each transaction to fiat money (Euros).
13.2 Your Bank Account
You will be required to provide us with your bank account information for accounting purposes.
You must provide us with written notice at least one (1) business day prior to closing your bank account. If you wish to continue to receive direct deposits, you must provide us with information for a substitute bank account. You are solely liable for all fees and costs associated with your bank account and for all overdrafts. You are also liable to us for any fees that we may incur based on your provision of inaccurate information or instructions.

We will not be liable for any delays in receipt of funds or errors in bank account entries caused by third parties, nor will we be liable or responsible for any errors in the account or address information that you have provided to us.
