6. Appointment of Bazista as Limited Collection Agent for Sellers

Each seller appoints Bazista as its agent for the limited purpose of receiving, holding and settling payments to seller. Bazista will settle payments that are actually received by Bazista to each seller, less any amounts owed to Bazista and subject to these Terms. Each seller agrees that a buyer payment received by Bazista, on behalf of seller, satisfies the buyer's obligations to make payment to seller, regardless of whether Bazista actually settles such payment to seller. If Bazista does not settle any such payments as described in these Terms to a seller, such seller will have recourse only against Bazista and not the buyer.

7. Deposits

A. Payment Account. All funds resulting from a completed transaction will be reflected as a balance in a seller’s payment account. Transactions are considered complete once the payment is approved by Bazista or our fraud analysis service provider. Any refunds, adjustments, or other amounts paid to buyers in connection with purchases, or for funds received since the last payment day, are also applied to the seller’s payment account balance.

Funds in a payment account balance are eligible for deposit (the “Available Balance”) into a seller’s external wallet addresses at the end of any applicable deposit delay, reserve, or hold period as determined by the seller’s bank.

B. Holds and Delays. In some cases, deposits to sellers’ external wallet addresses could be temporarily delayed by an issue at Bazista, at Bazista’s third-party service providers, or at currently state of associated blockchain. We’ll do our best to communicate with the affected sellers as soon as we can.

If we believe that a seller's actions may result in buyer disputes, chargebacks, or other claims, then we may, in our sole discretion, put (1) a hold, (2) a deposit delay, or (3) a reserve on the seller’s internal payment account balance.

Deposit delays are defined as the number of days between a sale and the day the net amount from the sale becomes available for deposit, provided the payment has been completed. A deposit delay may be between 0 and 180 days. A deposit delay is applied across all transactions for a seller and the number of days is reflected in each seller’s payment account.

NOTE

We usually impose a limit on the withdrawal of funds by the seller for a specific order until the successful end of trading is confirmed by the buyer. These measures are aimed at combating fraud on the marketplace but can be revised privately relying on the rating of the seller and in the course of conversations directly with the seller as well as other cases at the discretion of Bazista.

A reserve is defined as a fixed percentage of a seller’s payment account balance delayed prior to being included as part of a seller’s Available Balance for a period of up to 180 days.

We always work hard to avoid and minimize any delays. However, please note that Bazista is not obligated to refund any fees or reimburse any expenses due to holds or delayed deposits.

C. Escheatment. It is the seller’s sole responsibility for confirming his or her external wallet address information to receive the funds. If a seller confirm a wrong address of his or her external wallet or fails to update address of external wallet this can lead to total and partial loss of funds.

8. Recoupment

A. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to seek reimbursement from a seller in any of the following circumstances: (a) we provide a refund to a buyer because a seller did not promptly deliver the goods or we otherwise determine, consistent with Section 5 (Seller Rights and Responsibilities), that a refund is warranted in a particular circumstance, (b) we discover erroneous or duplicate transactions related to a seller, (c) a seller does not act in accordance with Bazista’s Terms of Use or any policy thereunder.

B. We may obtain reimbursement of any amounts owed by a seller to Bazista by deducting from future payments owed to the seller, reversing any credits to the seller’s payment account balance, charging the seller’s bill, or seeking reimbursement from the seller by any other lawful means, including by using third-party services. You authorize us to use any or all of the foregoing methods to seek reimbursement.

9. Payment Processing Fees

A. Overview. At the moment Bazista not charges a fee (the “Payment Processing Fee”) for processing each transaction through Bazista Payments. nevertheless, the user must pay the network commission and all related payments provided by the relevant blockchain for all deposits and withdrawals. We reserve the right to modify the Payment Processing Fee at any time.

B. Listing Currency Conversion Considerations for Sellers and Byers. The seller reserves the right to accept a single or several different cryptocurrencies and digital assets for payment. When a seller lists and subsequently sells an item in a cryptocurrency or digital asset other than the seller's prefered payment currency, Bazista will settle the associated convertions of the payment. When such a service is required, Bazista applies an additional transaction charge associated with exchange rate of selected cryptocurrencies and digital assets. Calculation rates are updated hourly.

10. Termination

At the end of the 180-day period following termination, we will disburse to the seller any amount not used to offset chargebacks, refunds, adjustments, or such other amounts paid to buyers, or seek reimbursement from the seller via any of the means authorized in this Policy for any additional amount required to offset chargebacks, refunds, adjustments, or other amounts paid to buyers, as applicable.
