4. Orders, payments and billing
4.1. Order Confirmation and Payment Schedule
(a) All Orders which you place with Fu are subject to approval by Fu, in our reasonable discretion. We may choose not to approve an Order or provide a Product to you, or may cancel an approved Order before the goods or services are delivered or supplied, if:
(i) we reasonably consider this necessary in order to:
(A) protect the integrity of our systems or the Products;
(B) prevent fraud;
(C) limit the risk of money laundering or terrorism financing; or
(D) otherwise protect us against legal, regulatory or non-payment risk;
(ii) you do not pass our verifications or checks, including those described in clause 6;
(iii) we reasonably suspect, or are aware, that you have breached this Agreement in a material respect (including by failing to make any payment due under this Agreement on the payment due date);
(iv) an Order is made with a merchant in a different jurisdiction that is not permitted by Fu; or
(v) we otherwise reasonably consider the Order to be suspicious.
(b) If we cancel an approved Order:
(i) we will apply a full refund of any amounts you have paid to us to your Nominated Payment Source or (if that is not possible) to any other Card that you have provided us details of, and will cancel any future payments related to that Order. In the event the approved Order is cancelled because a chargeback has been incurred by Fu in relation to a payment for the approved Order, that payment will not be refunded by Fu. Any return of funds in that event will be as between you and your issuing bank. The Merchant or Third Party Supplier (as applicable) will not be obliged to deliver the goods (or provide the services) the subject of the Order, unless required to do so by law;
(ii) you will have no obligation to make any further payments to us, or any other ongoing relationship with us, with respect to that Order; and
(iii) if you wish to proceed with the purchase from the Merchant, the Merchant may accept an alternative payment method in its discretion, or if required to do so by law.
(c) Once we approve your Order, you will receive an email or message from us with confirmation of receipt of your Order and a Payment Schedule.
(d) You agree to ensure that payment(s) are made in accordance with the Payment Schedule. You may make early payments or adjust your Payment Schedule by agreement with Fu through your Fu Account, otherwise Fu will automatically process payments in accordance with the Payment Schedule. You authorise Fu to process such payments using the Payment Method details provided by you. If an Automatic Payment fails on any of the dates specified in your Payment Schedule, Fu reserves the right to re-attempt to process the payment at a later time or date.
(e) Throughout the application process, Fu will provide a repayment timeline which will provide a default of either 1,2 or 3 repayments centralised around your cashflow. The dates provided are centralised around your detected income and pay cycle frequency. Throughout the application process and thereafter, you can modify payments to suit your cash flow.
(f) Payment dates and amounts can be modified throughout the repayment timeline via navigating into the Product dashboard, selecting the transaction and editing payments. Payments cannot be edited:
- If there is a transaction in progress;
- If there is a late payment owing to Fu;
- If a member has exceeded the maximum number of repayments allowed.
(a) An ‘Automatic Payment’ is a payment, through the Payment Method you have chosen, that we will automatically charge directly to your nominated bank account (‘Nominated Payment Source’) on a one-time or regular basis in agreed upon amounts, as outlined in your Payment Schedule. You will have the option to select a preferred Payment Method and Nominated Payment Source when your Fu Account is being created.
(b) Subject to the other terms of this Agreement, You hereby expressly consent to, authorise and instruct Fu to deduct Automatic Payment amounts from your Nominated Payment Source for the amounts and on those scheduled dates set out in your Payment Schedule. You acknowledge that you are authorising us to collect or reverse variable payment amounts from or to your Nominated Payment Source, in accordance with your Payment Schedule and the terms of this Agreement.
(c) You are responsible for ensuring that you have sufficient funds in your Nominated Payment Source available to make Automatic Payments on the dates specified in your Payment Schedule. You are liable for any fees or charges imposed by your Nominated Payment Source, except to the extent that such fees or charges arise as a result of our error or system failure. If any fees or charges are imposed as a result of our error or system failure, please provide us with a copy of the relevant records, and we will reimburse you for the relevant fees or charges.
(d) If an Automatic Payment fails, Fees may apply unless you otherwise make the scheduled payment on or before the relevant due date. You authorise us to satisfy any monetary liability you owe us by:
(i) Debiting your Nominated Payment Source at a later time or date;
(ii) Debiting your nominated bank account which you have provided details of;
(iii) Offsetting the payment amount against any amounts we may owe to you; or
(iv) Any other legal means.
(e) By accepting Fu’s terms and the Split Payments DDRSA, you authorise Fu to collect funds owing via a direct-debit authorisation. Fu will collect funds owing, including any fees on the nominated payment date selected by you.
(f) Fu will use its best endeavours to avoid any dishonour fees from your bank charged for insufficient funds by performing a balance check on your account prior to direct debit processing. However, in the event that Fu attempts to collect funds from you and there is a dishonour fee associated with the transaction due to insufficient funds, you are liable for this fee.
(g) Once a collection has been processed from your account, the associated transaction will be marked as paid in the app and a receipt will be generated once funds have cleared into Fu’s account.
(h) In the event that Fu cannot collect funds owing to us by you either due to a pre collection balance check identifying insufficient funds or a direct debit collection failing, the following will occur:
- The payment will be marked as late.
- We will notify you of your late payment and continue to contact you regularly with late payment notifications.
- We will attempt to recollect funds the next day and everyday thereafter throughout the Payment Schedule. In the event that funds are available in the nominated bank account, we will collect the funds owing.
- You will not be able to apply for any further funding until any late payments are made.
- If you have a late payment in the App, you can trigger a once off payment to rectify the issue or get in touch with our team.
- In the event that owing funds cannot be collected within the Repayment Schedule (58 days) we will then transition to formal debt collection.
(i) Closing of account/ removing bank account:
- If you do not have outstanding funds owing to Fu, you may request to delete your account and unlink your bank accounts by getting in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- In order to deactivate an account and remove an associated repayment linked to your bank accounts, you must pay any owing funds in full. This can be initiated through the app (settings) or through getting in touch with our team.
4.3. Late Payments
(a) If you fail to pay any amounts according to the Payment Schedule, Fees may apply on each payment that is due but not received.
(b) We may, at our sole discretion, reasonably delay the application of, or waive wholly or partly, any Fee. If Fees are incurred as a result of Fu’s error, please let us know, and we will waive or refund such fees, as relevant.
Any Charges or Fees payable by you to use our Products are set out in clause 34 to this Agreement.
No interest charges are payable by you to use our Products.
4.6. No set off
Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, you must make all payments in accordance with the Payment Schedule and pay all other amounts in full to us under this Agreement without any set-off, withholding or reduction for any reason whatsoever, including any existing or future act, omission or default by us.
4.7. Higher Upfront payment
(a) Where the Original Order Value exceeds your approved spending limit with Fu, you may be offered the option to pay a part of the Original Order Value.
(b) For the avoidance of doubt, Your obligations with respect to Your Payment Schedule (regardless of the applicability of this section) shall continue to apply in accordance with this Agreement, including your obligations under clause 4.2.
(a) If you decide to return goods to a Merchant or Third Party Supplier (as applicable), which have been purchased using our Products, and request a refund, or a return and refund are otherwise accepted by the Merchant or Third Party Supplier or permitted by law, you will directly arrange the return with the Merchant or Third Party Supplier, ensuring that the goods are returned according to the Merchant’s or Third Party Supplier’s returns policy or other instructions or your rights at law.
(b) It is your responsibility to notify the Merchant or Third Party Supplier if you intend to return any goods. The return must be completed within the period specified and in the manner required by the Merchant’s or Third Party Supplier’s returns policy or as otherwise permitted by the Merchant or Third Party Supplier.
(c) Unless we are notified by a Merchant or Third Party Supplier that a return and refund is in progress, we will continue to process any Automatic Payments in accordance with the dates set out in your Payment Schedule.
(d) Until such time that the Merchant or Third Party Supplier has confirmed the return of the goods and has issued a refund to us for those goods, you will remain liable to us for the full payment of the goods, in accordance with your Payment Schedule.
(e) Once the Merchant or Third Party Supplier has issued a refund to us for the goods, we will issue a refund to your Nominated Payment Source and/or adjust your Payment Schedule appropriately (including to reduce or cancel any future payments, if necessary). Please note, in the event of partial refunds, refund amounts are taken off the last payment/s first. If the refund is processed to your expired or cancelled card, you will need to obtain the returned funds by contacting your financial institution.
(f) Where you wish to return a product 120 days or more after the purchase date, we will no longer have any involvement in the product return process (i.e. the Merchant will provide any agreed refund directly to you). A longer period will apply where we have agreed a longer period with a Merchant or Third Party Supplier where required based on the nature of the goods or services purchased by you.
6. Assessment and checks
We reserve the right to assess, and determine whether to accept or cancel, each Order in accordance with clause 4.1.
6.2. Repayment capability and identity checks
(a) We reserve the right to verify your identity, including if required under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act. Verifying your identity does not mean we will approve your order (see clause 4.1(a) for other variables that are considered).
(b) You agree to provide any information or documentation reasonably requested by Fu, a Merchant or a Third Party Supplier to verify your identity in connection with your Fu Account or Orders.
(c) You authorise us to make, directly or through third parties, any enquiries we consider necessary to verify your identity and assess your capability to make payments according to the Payment Schedule in relation to all Fu Orders. This may include performing other repayment capability checks and verifying information you provide against third party databases.
(e) You authorise Fu (or any third parties providing services on behalf of Fu) to disclose to third parties, to the extent required by any applicable laws or regulations, any information in relation to you or your Fu Account. In addition, you acknowledge that Fu reserves the right to report any negative activity on your Fu Account (including late payments, missed payments, defaults or chargebacks) to credit reporting agencies.
(f) We may also exchange information with Pays Providers:
(i) to enable the use of the Card with the Device Wallet and to improve and promote the Pays Providers generally; and
(ii) to detect and address suspected security breaches or fraud.
(g) You should be aware that:
(i) Fu is not required to take any action or perform any obligation under or in connection with the Card if it is not satisfied as to your identity, or where there are reasonable grounds to suspect that by doing so it may breach the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act;
(ii) transactions may be delayed, blocked, frozen or refused where we have reasonable grounds to believe that they breach Australian law or sanctions (or the law or sanctions of another country). Where transactions are delayed, blocked, frozen or refused, Fu is not liable for any loss you suffer (including consequential loss) howsoever caused in connection with your Card; and
(iii) Fu may from time to time require additional information from you to assist us in the above compliance process.
(h) You provide Fu with the following undertakings and indemnify Fu against any potential losses arising from any breach by you of such undertakings:

(a) You will not be liable for losses resulting from Unauthorised Transactions where it is clear that you have not contributed to the loss.
(b) You will not be liable for losses resulting from Unauthorised Transactions that are caused by:
(i) fraud or negligence by our employees or agents, a third party involved in networking arrangements, or a merchant or their employee or agent;
(ii) a Card, Identifier or Pass Code which is forged, faulty, expired or cancelled;
(iii) a transaction requiring the use of a Card and/or Pass Code that occurred before you have received the Card and/or Pass Code (including a reissued Card and/or Pass Code);
(iv) a transaction being incorrectly debited more than once to your Card; or
(v) an Unauthorised Transaction performed after you have informed us that your Card has been misused, lost or stolen, or the security of a Pass Code has been breached.
(c) You are not liable for loss arising from an Unauthorised Transactions that can be made using an identifier without the Card or a PIN. Where a transaction can be made using the Card, or a Card and an identifier, but does not require a PIN, you are liable only if you unreasonably delay reporting the loss or theft of the Card or a Device.
12.2. Where you are liable
(a) You are liable for loss resulting from an Unauthorised Transaction if we can prove on the balance of probability that you contributed to the loss through fraud or breaching section 45 and 46. In those circumstances you are liable in full for the actual losses that occur before the loss, theft or misuse of a Card or Device or breach of PIN or Pass Code security is reported to us but:
(i) you are not liable for the portion of losses incurred on any one day in excess of any applicable daily transaction limit; and
(ii) you are not liable for the portion of losses incurred in any period in excess of any applicable periodic transaction limit; and
(iii) you are not liable for the portion of losses that exceeds that Available Balance; and
(iv) you are not liable for the portion of losses incurred if we and you had not agreed that the Available Balance could be accessed using the Card or Identifier and/or PIN used to perform the transaction.
(b) You will be liable for losses arising from an Unauthorised Transaction if we can prove on the balance of probability that you contributed to those losses by unreasonably delaying reporting the misuse, loss or theft of a Card or Device, or that the security of all PINs has been breached. In those circumstances, you are liable in full for the actual losses that occur between when you become aware of the security compromise, or should reasonably have become aware in the case of a lost or stolen Card, but:
(i) you are not liable for the portion of losses incurred on any one day in excess of any applicable daily transaction limit; and
(ii) you are not liable for the portion of losses incurred in any period in excess of any applicable periodic transaction limit; and
(iii) you are not liable for the portion of losses that exceeds the Available Balance; and
(iv) you are not liable for the portion of losses incurred if we and you had not agreed that the Available Balance could be accessed using the Card or Identifier and/or PIN used to perform the transaction.
(c) If a PIN was required to perform an Unauthorised Transaction not already covered above, you will be liable for the least of:
(i) $150; or
(ii) the Available Balance; or
(iii) the actual loss at the time that the misuse, loss or theft of a Card or breach of PIN security is reported to us, excluding that portion of the losses incurred on any one day which exceeds any relevant daily of other periodic transaction limit.
(d) If you report an Unauthorised Transaction, we will not hold you liable for losses arising from the Unauthorised Transaction for an amount greater than your liability if we exercised any rights under the rules of the Mastercard scheme, at the time of the report, against other parties to the Mastercard scheme (for example, chargeback rights).
(a) You are responsible to Fu and any related companies of Fu to the extent they are involved in the provision of the Products for any loss, costs (including reasonable legal fees), expense or damage they suffered or incurred:
(i) in connection with any claim or demand made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of this Agreement, or your breach of any law or of the rights of a third party relating to your use of our Products or Website; and
(ii) as a direct or indirect consequence of unauthorised users accessing your account as a result of your negligence.
(b) Your liability under clause 13(a) will be reduced proportionately to the extent that Fu, its contractors or agents:
(i) caused or contributed to the relevant claim, demand, loss or damage; or
(ii) failed to take reasonable steps to mitigate the relevant claim, demand, loss or damage.
14. Breach relating to misuse of the Products

You agree that monetary damages will not be sufficient to remedy that detriment, or may otherwise be incapable of being ascertained, and irrevocably consent to Fu or any of its related bodies corporate seeking and obtaining injunctive relief to obtain relevant documents from you and to prevent such breach, or orders of specific performance to compel compliance, in addition to any other remedies available at law or in equity.
(c) If Fu reasonably considers that you have breached an obligation under this Agreement in relation to your identity, the information you provide to us and/or your use of your Fu Account and our Products, you agree, on request from Fu, to provide Fu with copies of all documents, notes or communications in relation to such alleged breach.

- You spend US$200.00;
