Invoices and Settlement
- In order to accept a Digital Asset payment or donation, you need to create a request (“Invoice”) through the Site. When creating the Invoice you will be able to specify an invoice currency and amount and a settlement currency, from those made available to you by us. The settlement currency is the currency you set for us to convert the Digital Asset into and for the purpose of this Section should not be confused with the Digital Asset displayed to your Purchaser in which is the payment currency for your Invoice. You assume any volatility risks of the currency in which you choose to settle. For example, if you choose your settlement currency as Bitcoin, then you assume the volatility risk of the Bitcoin value.
- The Invoice can be sent to the Purchaser by email or a URL link, or displayed to the Purchaser via a hosted or embedded integration on your website or point of sale device. The Invoice will provide the Purchaser with details of how to settle through Digital Asset payment. The Digital Asset amount that they must pay is based on a time-limited fixed price which we guarantee the Purchaser if the Invoice is fully paid prior to the expiry date and time provided by us. If the Invoice sent by email or a URL link is left to expire without payment being made, then the price and expiry date and time can be refreshed by closing the Invoice and re-opening it again after the original expiry date and time would have expired.
- The Invoice is considered and marked ‘Complete’ by us if it has been fully paid by the Purchaser prior to the expiry date and time provided by us and received the required number of block confirmations as determined by us, and the payment has been credited to your Account in your chosen settlement currency. You may inform the Purchaser that you have accepted the Invoice as paid prior to it being considered complete by us, for example an Invoice payment that has not been confirmed or credited to your Account in your chosen settlement currency. In such an instance, CoinCorner is not liable to you for settling Invoices that are not considered fully paid and Complete.
Underpayments, Overpayments, Expired Payments & Exceptions
- Underpayments occur when a Purchaser sends less than the full amount required to mark the Invoice as fully paid. The funds received are exchanged into your chosen settlement currency and credited to your Account and should the Invoice not be settled in full prior to its expiration, the Invoice will be marked as ‘Expired’.
- Overpayments occur when an Invoice receives excess funds. The funds are converted into your chosen settlement currency and credited to your Account and the Invoice is marked as ‘Complete’. You will then have the option to make a refund.
- Expired payments occur when no payment is made prior to the expiry date and time provided by us. These payments will appear in your account as an ‘Expired’.
- Where a payment is received after the expiry date and time provided by us, you agree that we may exchange it into your chosen settlement currency with the price being determined by the sell price available to you at the time of exchange. We recommend that the terms and conditions between you and the Purchaser reflect this.
- Payments received after an Invoice has been marked Complete will not be exchanged into your settlement currency.
- CoinCorner ceases monitoring wallet addresses after a given period of time, and therefore you will need to Contact Us if you are aware that a payment has been made but not applied to your Account.
- CoinCorner is not responsible for your refund policies. We suggest you have a clear refund policy for your 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). If refunds are permitted, we recommend you refund the amount of the initial purchase in the currency in which the item was priced. Your refund policies and procedures must comply with all applicable laws and regulations, and with the provisions of this Agreement.
- You can decide to issue a partial refund or refund the full amount of the initial purchase. The refund will be made in the same Digital Asset as used to pay the Invoice. If you do not have enough funds in your Account to cover the refund, then you will be required to deposit Digital Assets or Fiat Currency to your Account to cover the refund to the Purchaser.
- The price of any required exchange during the refund process will be calculated at the price available to you at that time. Under no circumstances do we guarantee a refund of the Digital Asset at the same price at which the Digital Asset was originally exchanged into your settlement currency.
- You acknowledge and agree that a transaction fee will be charged for each transaction processed through Checkout, regardless of whether the transaction is settled into a Fiat Currency. Your continued use of the Checkout service after we notify you of any changes in our fees constitutes your acceptance of such change.

- In providing us with any Enhanced Due Diligence documentation or information, you confirm that it is true, accurate and complete, and you have not withheld anything that may influence our, or any Service providers, evaluation of you or any transaction undertaken on your Account. You agree to promptly notify us by email of any change in circumstance that may cause any such information or documentation provided to become void, incomplete or misleading and also undertake to provide any other additional information or documentation required by us and/or applicable law.
