mIQro Money, LLC.




Assignment


Merchant hereby sells and assigns to mIQro Money, LLC as absolute owner thereof which includes the current and future payments to which the Merchant may be entitled from any account access device or number, including a bank issued PIN Debit card; VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or other magnetic stripe, smartcard, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification)-based credit or general payment card (the “Payment Cards”) processed by a payment processor on behalf of the specific Merchant ID provided on the mIQro Money Advance Program Application and Agreement (“Merchant’s Processor”), and all contract rights or other proceeds resulting therefrom (the “Receivables”), in the amount necessary to pay Receivables sold to mIQro Money under its mIQro Money Program as evidenced by the Merchant’s periodic Receivables Sale Request and Authorization form.

Merchant hereby authorizes mIQro Money to receive from Merchant’s Processor a sufficient amount, as designated by mIQro Money, of merchant's Receivables settlements to receive the full amount of Receivable sold within ten (10) Merchant’s daily processing settlements next following the advance. If at any time Merchant’s daily Receivables are less than the specified daily minimum, then Merchant hereby expressly authorizes Merchant’s Processor to automatically deduct sufficient monies from Merchant’s next payment card settlement to replace the shortfall in the previous Receivables payment.

Terms and Conditions


These terms and conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”) constitute the agreement between Merchant and mIQro Money, LLC, that, together with the mIQro Money Agreement signed by Merchant in favor of mIQro Money, LLC (the “Agreement”), govern Merchant’s use of the mIQro Money Merchant Advance Program (the “mIQro Money Advance Program”) established by mIQro Money, LLC for Merchant’s benefit. In these Terms and Conditions, “Merchant” refers to Merchant signing below that has submitted a mIQro Money Advance Program Application and Agreement (the “Application”) to mIQro Money, LLC. This Agreement will become effective upon the Merchant’s having been approved to participate in the mIQro Money Advance Program.

Eligibility

The mIQro Money Advance Program is a receivables factoring program that provides eligible merchants periodic access to immediate cash by selling short-term future Receivables. The mIQro Money Advance Program is available to enrolled merchants that accept credit and debit card payments for their ordinary course sale of goods and services. To be eligible, Merchant must apply by completing and submitting to us mIQro Money’s Application. Merchant and Merchant’s Processor must meet Bank’s underwriting criteria as in effect from time to time and Merchant’s Processor must participate in the mIQro Money Advance Program. The Bank reserves the right to decline any applicant for any reason. If approved for participation in the mIQro Money Advance Program Merchant will be authorized to submit periodic requests to the Bank asking the Bank to purchase Receivables (a “Receivables Sale Request”). Within approximately one (1) hour the Bank will advise Merchant if the Bank agrees, in its sole discretion, to make such a purchase Merchant and Merchant’s Processor must meet the Bank’s eligibility and underwriting criteria at the time of each Receivables Sale Request If the Bank agrees to a Receivables Sale Request, it will purchase such Receivables by making a payment (each, an “Advance” and collectively, the “Advances”) directly into the deposit account designated by Merchant in the Application at the time of enrollment. The Bank may change its eligibility and underwriting criteria or may decline any Receivables Sale Request at any time without notice.

Requests for Receivables Sale under the mIQro Money Advance Program

Merchant may make a Receivables Sale Request by submitting a completed Receivables Sale Request and Authorization form to us at the number provided on Bank’s Website or, if available on Bank’s Website at the time of request, by submitting an electronic version of the form through Bank’s Website. A Receivables Sale Request may be made which will generate Advances in any increment of $100.00 up to the Advance Limit (as described below). If Merchant makes a Receivables Sale Request that would result in an Advance greater than the Advance Limit, the Bank will purchase Receivables that result in an Advance to Merchant only the maximum available amount. Each Receivables Sale Request granted shall be evidenced and governed by this Agreement. The amount of Receivables purchased by the Bank and sold by the Merchant in any particular sales transaction will be in an amount equal to the amount of the Advance plus 10%. The Bank shall keep internal records of all Receivables purchased from Merchant and all Advances made by the Bank to Merchant, and such records shall be conclusive evidence of the Receivables purchase history and outstanding Receivables balance at any time. Merchant may make as many Receivables Sale Requests as desired, subject to the Advance Limit and Merchant’s continued compliance with eligibility and underwriting criteria.

Advance Limit

The maximum amount of the aggregate Advances that may be at any time outstanding is the “Advance Limit”. Unless otherwise determined by Bank, the Advance Limit, is equal to 10% of Merchant’s monthly average payment card sales processing volume over the prior ninety (90) calendar day period, up to $3,000.00. The Advance Limit will be reduced by any outstanding Advance. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Bank reserves the right to establish the maximum Advance Limit in an amount less than the Advance Limit calculated as above or to set additional limitations and conditions to the amount of the Receivables to be purchased, based on such additional criteria as the Bank may determine in its sole discretion, including prior payment card sales processing history. The Bank may amend the Advance Limit, reduce availability or set additional conditions to Receivables purchases at any time and without prior notice.

Dispute Resolution Program (“Arbitration Agreement”)

Non-Judicial Resolution of Disputes. If Merchant has a dispute with the Bank, and Merchant is not able to resolve the dispute informally, Merchant and the Bank agree that any dispute, regardless of when it arose, shall be resolved by the following arbitration process. Merchant understands and agrees that Merchant and the Bank are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court. As an exception to this Arbitration Agreement, Merchant retains the right to pursue in an Oklahoma small claims court located in Garfield County, Oklahoma any dispute that is within that court’s jurisdiction.

Disputes. A dispute is any unresolved disagreement between Merchant (and the Merchant’s’s employees, officers, directors, attorneys, and other agents) and the Bank (and the Bank’s employees, officers, directors, attorneys, and other agents). It includes any dispute relating in any way to the mIQro Money Advance Agreement and mIQro Money Advance Program or related services or matters described in this Agreement; to Merchant’s use of any of the Bank’s locations or facilities; or to any means Merchant may use to access the Bank. It includes claims based on broken promises or contracts, torts (injuries caused by negligent or intentional conduct) or other wrongful actions. It also includes statutory, common law and equitable claims. A dispute also includes any disagreement about the meaning of this Arbitration Agreement, and whether a disagreement is a “dispute” subject to binding arbitration as provided for in this Arbitration Agreement.

Binding Arbitration. Binding arbitration is a means of having an independent third party resolve a dispute without using the court system, judges or juries. Either Merchant or the Bank may require the submission of a dispute to binding arbitration at any reasonable time notwithstanding that a lawsuit or other proceeding has been commenced. If either Merchant or the Bank fail to submit to binding arbitration following a lawful demand, the one who fails to so submit bears all costs and expenses incurred by the other in compelling arbitration. Claims must be brought in an individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceedings. Neither Merchant nor the Bank shall be entitled to join or consolidate disputes by or against others in any arbitration, or to include in any arbitration any dispute as a representative or member of a class, or to act in any arbitration in the interest of the general public or in a private attorney general capacity. Each arbitration, including the selection of the arbitrator(s) shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), according to the Commercial Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”). To the extent that there is any variance between the AAA Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement shall control. Arbitrator(s) must be members of the state bar where the arbitration is held, with expertise in the substantive laws applicable to the subject matter of the dispute. Merchant and the Bank each agree that in this relationship: (a) Merchant and the Bank are participating in transactions involving interstate commerce; and (b) each arbitration is governed by the provisions of the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9 of the United States Code), and, to the extent any provision of that Act is inapplicable, unenforceable or invalid, to the laws of the State of Oklahoma. To find out how to initiate an arbitration, Merchant may call any office of the AAA or visit the AAA website at www.adr.org.

Rights Preserved. This Arbitration Agreement and the exercise of any of the rights Merchant and the Bank have under this Arbitration Agreement do not stop Merchant and the Bank from exercising any lawful rights to use other remedies available to preserve, foreclose or obtain possession of real or personal property; exercise self-help remedies, including setoff and repossession rights; or obtain provisional or ancillary remedies such as injunctive relief, attachment, garnishment or the appointment of a receiver by a court having jurisdiction. Miscellaneous. Merchant and the Bank each agree to take all steps and execute all documents necessary for the implementation of arbitration proceedings. The arbitrator may hear and rule on appropriate dispositive motions as part of the arbitration proceedings, such as motions for judgments on the pleadings, summary judgment or partial summary judgment. The AAA, the arbitrators, Merchant and the Bank must, to the extent feasible, take any necessary action to assure that an arbitration proceeding, as described in this Arbitration Agreement, is completed within 180 days of filing the dispute with the AAA. These parties must not disclose the existence, content or results of the arbitration, except for disclosures of information required in the ordinary course of business or permitted by applicable law or regulation. This provision shall be liberally construed in order to ensure the enforcement of these Terms and Conditions. All statutes of limitations applicable to any dispute apply to any arbitration between Merchant and the Bank . This Arbitration Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Merchant and the Bank and supersedes all prior arrangements and other communications concerning dispute resolution.
