Payment processing service
Pless may allow you to make in-store payment transactions using the Pless application which resides on your mobile device using your Payment Instruments which are stored on Pless servers or hosted by a third party provider designated by Pless. Pless may also enable you to store your Payment Instruments on Pless’ or its third party provider's servers. You can also access your Payment Instruments and transaction history of those transactions where the payments have been made through the Pless app. The Pless Service also enables you to access Offers, Loyalty Programs, and other items which you have saved to Pless. Pless gives you the ability to make purchases at participating merchant locations. Pless will charge your Payment Instruments stored on Pless’ or third party provider's servers for transactions using the Pless Service.
In order to use the Processing Service, you must complete all required information elements on the Pless registration pages. You must register a valid Payment Instrument (Credit card, debit card or bank account) to make Payment Transactions. Pless does not make any representation or verify that any of your Payment Instruments are in good standing or that the issuer of your Payment Instrument will authorize or approve any purchase of Products from a merchant when you use the Pless app in connection with that purchase. Pless, in its sole and absolute discretion, may refuse to approve or may terminate existing registrations for the Processing Service with or without cause or notice, other than any notice required by any Applicable Law, and not waived herein.
The Buyer can use Pless as follows: Search for a merchant on the Pless app or scan a Pless QR code placed at the merchant’s counter or at his place of business. Verify the name and details of the merchant and enter the amount to be paid. Buyer can then select any of the saved Payment Instruments or add a new Payment Instrument to make the transaction. The online payment process specific to your Payment Instrument will then be implemented. On transaction confirmation both the Buyer and the merchant are notified of the payment. By using your Pless app using the method described above to make Payment Transactions, you authorize Pless to charge your selected Payment Instrument for such Payment Transaction.
You can store a Payment Instrument with Pless by providing the payment credentials: credit card or debit card number and card expiration date. All data pertaining to payment instruments are stored in compliance with prevailing regulations of Reserve Bank of India. Payment instruments are stored in PCI DSS Level 1 certified databases of Pless or their third party service providers. The user acknowledges that Pless can at its discretion move the stored card data of the user between databases of third party providers or itself. Pless will ensure that all the databases where card data is stored in compliance with PCI DSS.
Pless facilitates a credit card or debit card purchase by a Buyer from a Seller that is registered with Pless. Pless stores information from Buyers, such as their Payment Instruments and shipping information. Pless processes Payment Transactions on behalf of Sellers, as the agent of the Seller, through the appropriate credit card or debit card network, as applicable. When Buyer chooses to pay for Products with the Processing Service, Buyer authorizes the Seller to submit charges (and, in the case of refunds, credits) to Buyer's registered Payment Instrument. Pless will assist as agent of the Seller in accessing the card networks and processing the Payment Transaction. Once Buyer's registered Payment Instrument is authorized, Buyer's payment obligation to Seller shall be deemed completed and discharged (except for Buyer's obligations in the event of a chargeback or other reversal). Purchases made are also subject to the terms and conditions governing Buyer's Payment Instrument between Buyer and the issuer of the Payment Instrument. Buyer is responsible for any charges and related fees that may be imposed under the Payment Instrument terms and conditions as a result of Buyer's use of a Payment Instrument. You acknowledge and agree that your purchases of Products are transactions between you and the Seller, and not with Pless or any of their affiliates. Pless is not a party to your Payment Transaction for the purchase of Products, and Pless or other Pless affiliates are not a Buyer or a Seller in connection with any Payment Transaction, unless expressly designated as such in the listing of the Product on Pless Web Site.
