Execution of Transactions
In order to perform a Transaction, the User shall complete the first stage of the approval of Transaction on the Application and then is entitled to choose the method of execution, whether (1) by physical delivery of the Funds at one of our partners' locations, (2) by wire transfer, and (3) by credit card. The Company has partners and branches throughout the state of Israel in which the User can perform physically the deposit of the Funds of the relevant Transaction.
The first stage of the Transaction: the Approval
The User shall log in its Account, insert the country where the recipient is located and determine the amount of Funds that he wishes to transfer or the amount that he wants the intended recipient to receive. The User can choose the currency of the Funds he wishes to transfer, either in Israeli Shekels, in US Dollars or in Euros. The User can also choose the currency in which the recipient will retrieve the Funds, if available and provided that the local partner of the Company can accept or provide it, and subject to the relevant exchange rate. In such case, the User shall be informed of the applicable exchange rate.
Upon inserting this information, the User will see on the Application a quote of the amount to be deposited within one of our branches (the "Quote"). The Quote shall remain valid for three (3) hours within the business hours of the same Business Day, unless extraordinary changes in market exchange rates that would amount to a variation of more than 2% (two percent) from the rate used for the Quote. In such case the Company is not obliged to guarantee the Quote and the User shall have no claim against the Company. Past the three hours delay, the Quote will no longer be valid and the User will have to re-enter all the information and details of the intended Transaction. For the sake of clarity, Business Day shall mean any day where the Israeli banking system is opened, from Sunday until Friday, excluding any national or banking holidays, and the business hours shall be from Sundays to Thursdays 8:00 until 18:00 and on Fridays, or days before national holidays, 8:00 until 13:00.
Along with the Quote, the User is informed of the exchange rate and the applicable commission which amount may vary its according to the destination of the Funds, the method of transfer, the local partners of the Company and the amount transferred. The User agrees and understands that once he agreed to it, he shall have no further claim against it.
The User shall fill in the details of the designated recipient per each Transaction, specifying the identity and location of the recipient, ID number if requested, country of delivery of the Transaction, address, phone number, banking details should the Transaction be performed by banking transfer, or credit card details should the Transaction be performed by payment to the recipient's credit card whenever the possibility is accepted, and any other detail that is necessary according to the policies of the Company for its legitimate purpose. The User must mention the source of the Funds to be transferred and the relation between him and the recipient. Those fields are mandatory.
Once all the details are filled in by the User, we process the information and proceed with our verification with respect to the Transaction. If the Transaction is further rejected, the User will receive a Notification indicating the rejection of the Transaction. The Company may at its sole discretion indicate or refuse to indicate the grounds of the rejection.
If the Transaction is approved, the User will receive a Notification with a temporary code. The window of validity of the Quote starts at the reception of this temporary code.
Once the details of the Transaction are approved, the User has three options to proceed with the Transaction: the wire transfer, the physical deposit or the credit card payment.
If the User chooses the wire transfer:
The User transfers the amount of Funds to our bank account (bank hapoalim, account 495773, branch 634, located at 13 Blvd. Rothschild, Rishon Letzion) and must indicate the temporary code received as mentioned in article 4.2.7 above. Once the Funds are received on our account during the business hours of our bank, and provided that the recipient fulfill the conditions set forth in these Terms and the applicable laws, we will proceed with the transfer.
The User understands that once it has transmitted the wiring order and the Funds are received on our account, the Transaction is under execution, and it cannot be cancelled. Nonetheless, should the User wish to cancel the Transaction, the User should contact as soon as practicable the head office. The User understands and agrees that the possibilities of modification or cancellation of a Transaction will depend upon the specific circumstances and the technical possibilities as well as on the local possibilities at the recipient's location.
Once the Funds are received on our account and we fill in the details to perform the Transaction, the User will receive a final code that relates to the performance of that specific Transaction.
If the User chooses the physical deposit:
The User can go to any of our partner licensed as a "Change" and affiliated with the Application, identify himself, indicates the temporary code to the local agent and proceeds with the deposit of the required amount of Funds as indicated in the Application.
Once the local agent has received the Funds and agreed to it on the online system, he issues a receipt and the User shall physically signs on it and keep its part. The receipt will also be sent by Notification to the User.
The User shall afterwards receive a Notification with a final code that the Transaction has been allowed and is to be performed. This identification confidential and final code shall be transmitted by the User only to the recipient in order for the latter to retrieve the Funds. The recipient must indicate the final code at the pick-up agency. When the Transaction is not performed by banking transfer, the User shall see on the Application the places where the recipient can retrieve the Funds physically and it is his sole responsibility to communicate such list to the recipient.
The User understands that once it has delivered the Funds to the local partner and that the Transaction is under execution, any change or cancellation raises complexity for the Company. The User should contact as soon as practicable the head office. The User understands and agrees that the possibilities of modification or cancellation of a Transaction will depend upon the specific circumstances and the technical possibilities as well as on the local possibilities at the recipient's location.
If the User chooses the credit card payment:
After having entered the details of the Transaction, the User can choose the credit card payment method. In such case, the User shall not wait for the Notification and the temporary code and can choose on the Application the feature "credit card payment" as it appears on the Application.
The User will then be directed to a payment page on the Application, powered by a third-party service provider providing the clearing services to the Company. The User will be requested to enter the details of his personal credit card in order to proceed with the performance of the Transaction. The execution of the credit card payment is secured under the [PCI-DSS system].The User shall not use the credit card of any other person and/or entity. The Company declines any liability towards the owner of a credit card that would have been used through the Application by a User is not the credit card owner. The User is solely liable towards the credit card owner for any use made of its credit card.
The User will be asked if he wishes to have his credit card details be recorded and stored, under an encryption method, by the third-party service provider for future Transactions. Acceptance is done by checking the relevant box. Nothing in the Application shall impose on the User the recording of the credit card details and he is entitled to withdraw his consent any time he performs a Transaction. The Company emphasizes that it has no access whatsoever to the credit card details of the User which would be stored and encrypted by the clearing partner of the Company.
The Transaction will be executed after the relevant banking entities have confirmed the transfer authorizations and the compliance verifications have been performed. The User shall then receive a final code that relates to the performance of the Transaction.
The User understands that once it has transmitted the credit card payment order, the Transaction is under execution, and it cannot be cancelled. Nonetheless, should the User wish to cancel the Transaction, the User should contact as soon as practicable the head office in order to obtain further information.
The Company may limit, at its sole discretion, the size of Transactions, the amount of Transactions and/or the type of Transactions that the User will carry out, including in respect of the target countries, the identity of the recipients of the funds, etc.
The Application entitles the User to check the history of its Account and the past Transactions up to sixty days prior to the actual date, whether performed, pending execution, suspended or cancelled.
Nothing in these Terms shall be construed as an obligation of the Company to accept any Transaction before it has been checked in accordance with the Company's internal policies or to receive any Funds from the User. The Company reserves the right, at any time and sole discretion, to reject the Transaction. The User shall not have any claim against the Company in this regard.
