To upload funds, you need to log in to your PlasmaPay Wallet and follow the steps as they appear on screen. We are not responsible for the funds you have uploaded until we have received them. For clarity, in an upload transaction, we are the recipient of funds and not the payment services provider.
You may be presented with one or more methods of upload for example, bank transfer, credit cards or debit cards (in this Terms, we will call these methods “Add funds Methods”). The number of Add funds Methods made available to you will depend on a number of factors including where you live and your verification status with us. Add funds Methods are not part of our Services, they are services provided by third parties for example, the card provider which issued you with your credit/debit card. We cannot guarantee the use of any particular Add funds Method and may change or stop offering a Add funds Method at any time without notice to you.
Any payment instrument (for example, the credit card or debit card) you use with your chosen Add funds Method must be in your name.
If you selected a Add funds Method which gives you chargeback rights (for example in relation to your credit card, you may ask your card provider to reverse a transaction on your card), you promise that you will only exercise this chargeback right if we have breached this Terms.
You promise that you will not exercise your chargeback right for reasons which we are not responsible, including a dispute with your recipient or if there are insufficient funds in your payment instrument. If we need to investigate or take any actions in connection with a chargeback raised by you, we may charge you for our costs in doing so and may deduct such amount from your PlasmaPay Wallet.
For legal and security reasons, we impose limits on how much you can add funds into your PlasmaPay Wallet.
We will credit your PlasmaPay Wallet once we have received your funds. For some Add funds Methods such as credit or debit card, we will credit the funds to your PlasmaPay Wallet as soon as possible subject to our right of reversal. This means if the actual amount you intended to upload does not reach us within a reasonable time, we may deduct such amount from your PlasmaPay Wallet. If you do not have enough funds in your PlasmaPay Wallet for this purpose, we can demand repayment from you using other methods.
To set up a payment (transfer) via your PlasmaPay Wallet, you need to provide certain information to us including (a) the full name or account name of your recipient, (b) your recipient’s bank account details or their PlasmaPay Wallet details (if required) and (c) amount and currency to be transferred.
We may place limits on the amount you may send per transfer. For more information on the applicable limits, please contact us.
Once we have received your payment, we will send you a confirmation by email. Each payment is given a unique transfer number and is shown in the transaction history on your PlasmaPay Wallet. You should quote this transfer number when communicating with us about a particular payment.
We will only process your payment if we hold or have received sufficient cleared funds in your PlasmaPay Wallet. It is your responsibility to fund your payment in a timely manner. We cannot be responsible for the time it takes for the funds to be sent to us by your bank or payment service provider.
We carry out verification checks, and these checks may increase the time it takes to process your payment. We cannot be responsible for any delays as a result of carrying out those checks.
The estimated completion time of your payment is notified to you when you complete the setup of your payment.
We will use reasonable efforts to ensure that the funds arrive in the recipient’s bank account or payment account within the timelines notified to you or otherwise specified in our regulations. We do not have any control over the time it may take for the recipient’s bank or payment provider to credit and make available funds to the recipient.
If we are unable to complete your payment, we will let you know and, if possible, the reasons for the refusal and an explanation of how to correct any factual errors. However, we are not required to notify you if such notification would be unlawful.
You may cancel your payment by following the instructions on the Site. You cannot cancel your payment once your funds have been converted into the stablecoin you requested.
You must make sure that the information you provide when setting up a payment is accurate. If we have processed your payment (transfer) in accordance with the information you have provided to us it will be considered correctly completed even if you have made a mistake.
If you provide incorrect information with your payment, we will use reasonable efforts to recover the funds for you, and may need to charge you a fee for that.
We will let you know the exchange rate:
When we refer to an exchange rate in this Terms and other PlasmaPay regulations, it means the mid-market exchange rate at the relevant time for the relevant currency pair as provided by our reference rate partner. We may change our reference rate provider from time to time without notice to you.
For some currencies, we cannot use the mid-market exchange rate as we are required to use a different reference rate for the exchange rate for your currency pair. For these currencies we will notify you of the reference rate used for the exchange rate when you place your payment.
We offer automatic guaranteed rates on certain payment, which may be changed from time to time.
Interest. You, the Customer, acknowledge and confirm that no interest will be received on the balance of your account.
Unclaimed. Customer funds: You agree that we may cease to treat your funds as Customer funds if there has been no movement on your balance for three years. We shall write to you at your last known address informing you of our intention of no longer treating your balance as Customer funds and giving you days to make a claim.
Liability and Indemnity. You agree that we shall not be liable for any default of any counterparty, bank, custodian or other entity which holds funds on your behalf or with or through whom transactions are conducted. The Company will not be liable for loss suffered by you in connection with your funds held by us unless such loss directly arises from our gross negligence, willful default or fraud.
The Service does not send or receive money. As a bitcoin wallet, the Service enables you to interface with the bitcoin network to view and transmit information about a public cryptographic key commonly referred to as a bitcoin address – sometimes referred to herein as a “bitcoin account”. To transmit information about a bitcoin account to the bitcoin network, the private key(s) corresponding with the bitcoin account is required. The Service requires three private cryptographic keys to be associated with each Bitcoin or Plasma wallet and PlasmaPay controls only one of these private keys. Two of the three private keys associated with a bitcoin wallet are needed to effect a “transfer” of bitcoin from a bitcoin account (i.e., disassociate bitcoin from one bitcoin wallet and re-associate bitcoin with another bitcoin wallet). Once the bitcoin network recognizes the information you send from the Service and validates it, the information is broadcasted to other individuals and companies in the bitcoin network and the Service cannot be used by you to cancel or reverse bitcoin-to-bitcoin transactions. The same is true for other cryptocurrency and digital assets for which we provide wallets (“Digital Asset”) including (as of the last update of these Terms) Bitcoin, Ether, Plasma and Stablecoins, [depending on what wallet services the customer has ordered from PlasmaPay.]
PlasmaPay does not own or control the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of Digital Currencies. Digital Asset protocols are subject to changes in protocol rules (referred to as “forks”), and such forks may materially affect the value, function, or name of the Digital Asset. You acknowledge and agree (i) that PlasmaPay is not responsible for operation of the underlying Digital Asset protocols and that PlasmaPay makes no guarantee of their functionality, security, or availability; and (ii) if a fork occurs, PlasmaPay may temporarily suspend the Services relating to the Digital Asset affected, and PlasmaPay may decide not to support the forked protocol entirely or may configure its Services to enable you to transfer the affected Digital Asset.
PlasmaPay controls only one of the three private keys for a Digital Asset wallet provided by the Service. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of the other two private keys. If you appoint a third party to control one or more of your private key(s), whether or not such appointment is made through the Service (e.g., through a key recovery service), PlasmaPay is not responsible for the actions or omissions of such third party. Control of these keys will allow such third party to transfer all of your Digital Assets from your wallets and you may never regain those Digital Assets.
Your wallets and your Digital Assets are your responsibility. PlasmaPay cannot cause transactions transferring Digital Assets from your wallets except in conjunction with a request or instruction through the Service by you or someone holding your private keys. You may need both of the private keys not controlled by PlasmaPay to initiate transfer of Digital Assets.
You are responsible for maintaining adequate security and control of any and all log in IDs, passwords, private keys, personal identification numbers (PINs), and any other codes that you use to access the Service. You will be solely responsible for the private keys that we provide to you or that you generate for our wallets, and maintaining secure back-ups. You will prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Services using your account credentials or private keys, and notify us promptly of any such unauthorized access or use. You must keep your account ID, passwords and any other account credentials confidential and not authorize any third party to access or use the Service on your behalf, unless we provide an approved mechanism for such use. You will notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org of any security breach of your account, system or network as soon as possible. You will cooperate with us in the investigation of any suspected unauthorized access to or use of the Services using your account credentials or private keys, and any security breach of your account, system, or network, and provide us with the results of any third-party forensic investigation that you undertake. You will be responsible, and PlasmaPay will have no liability, for all activity that takes place with your PlasmaPay Service account accessed using your account credentials, whether or not authorized by you.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless PlasmaPay, its independent contractors, service providers and consultants, and their respective directors, employees and agents, from and against any claims, damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or related to: (a) your use of the Site; (b) any Customer content or feedback you provide; (c) your violation of these Terms; (d) your violation of any rights of another; or (e) your conduct in connection with the Site. Some jurisdictions limit consumer indemnities, so some or all of the indemnity provisions above may not apply to you. If you are obligated to indemnify us, we will have the right, in our sole and unfettered discretion, to control any action or proceeding and determine whether we wish to settle it, and if so, on what terms.

Instant Payment is provided by Plasma Alliance OÜ (“Company”), an Estonia entity. Plasma Alliance OÜ is not a regulated financial services provider. All transactions through the PlasmaPay system are carried out in the internal cryptocurrency of the PlasmaPay system, which is a cryptographic token that is emitted by a smart contract in the blockchain of the Plasma DLT, which is algorithmically linked in a 1:1 ratio to the base (reserve) currency it is provided with. The Company does not make payments in cash (fiat) funds, which are the official means of payment, as well as in electronic cash.
You are solely responsible for understanding and complying with any and all laws, rules and regulations of your specific jurisdiction that may be applicable to you in connection with your use of the Instant Payment.
Eligibility. To be eligible to use the Instant Payment, you must be at least 18 years old. Your eligibility to access certain services also depends on the country in which you reside. Before using, learn about possible restrictions in accordance with the laws of your residence country.

Instant Payment Service. Instant payment service provides you with the opportunity to pay for goods and services of PlasmaPay’s partner companies, without any need to manually specify the amount and payment details. To make an Instant Payment by PlasmaPay, you just need to select the required product on the website of the partner’s store and choose the method of payment through PlasmaPay. If you are a PlasmaPay user, you will need to log in to the system, or if you are not our user, you can make Instant Payments as our guest.
Transaction Limits. If you are not a PlasmaPay’s user, you are subject to the following limits: (i) you can make a payment without identification only once: (ii) the amount of payment cannot exceed the equivalent of Fifteen thousand (15 000) euros. After making the first Instant Payment via PlasmaPay, we will automatically create a personal account for you in the PlasmaPay system and send you an email with temporary access to it. Further use of Instant Payments will be possible only through your account in PlasmaPay system after passing the identification procedure.
Transaction Fees. We will deduct the value of your transactions and any applicable Fees from your funding source at the time of the transaction. If you make a transaction, any applicable Fees will be added to the amount of the transaction so that the total sum of your transaction amount plus the applicable Fees will be deducted from your funding source. If you are attempting a transaction or redeeming funds in excess of the available balance on your funding source at the time the request is made plus any applicable Fees, then your request will not be processed. You should check all the Fees which apply to you. These are set out in the Fees Guidelines on our Website.
Transaction History. You may check your transaction history by logging into your account in PlasmaPay system. We will update your transaction history near real-time. Your transaction history will show: (i) date of time: (ii) transfer id; (iii) sender and receiver wallet address; (iv) total transfer amount and transfer status.
We may refuse to process a transaction: (i) if sufficient funds are not loaded on your funding source at the time of a transaction to cover the amount of the transaction and any applicable Fees; (ii) if you fail to pay applicable Fees; (iii) if we have reasonable grounds to believe that you are acting in breach of these Terms; (iv) if we believe that your transaction is suspicious or potentially illegal (for example, if we believe that your transaction is being made fraudulently); or (v) because of errors, failures (whether mechanical or otherwise) or refusals by the partner’s store.
No Refunds. Unless otherwise provided by these Terms, all successful transactions shall not be refundable under any circumstances, including but not limited to the termination of this Terms for whatever reason. The transaction shall be considered successful if the transaction amount has been received by the partner’s store. The transaction shall be considered unsuccessful if the transaction amount has not been received by the partner’s store. The entire amount of an unsuccessful transaction shall be refunded to your PlasmaPay account.
Disputes about goods and services. The Company does not regulate or control the eligibility of your transaction with the partner’s store, its conditions, as well as the fact and consequences of the conclusion, execution and termination of the transaction, including the refund of payment for such transaction. Also, the Company does not consider yours claims regarding non-performance (improper performance) by the partner’s store of its obligations under the transaction, including obligations to deliver you the purchased goods (works, services).
