5.2 Prepaid Jobs. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by Field Agent prior to lodging a request for Services, each Client must prepay for all Services they intend on acquiring (“Prepaid Jobs”) by either:
(1) providing Field Agent with credit card details (with sufficient credit to cover the fees involved in acquiring the Prepaid Job) via PayPal (“Prepaid Job Account”); or
(2) by paying the anticipated amount of the Prepaid Job (determined based on the Field Agent Fees) plus any fees owing to Field Agent into an account nominated by Field Agent.
Prepaid Jobs are subject to any Policies specified by Field Agent in relation to Prepaid Jobs.
Any monies paid in relation to Prepaid Jobs are maintained by Field Agent and will be applied against the specific Prepaid Job for which they have been paid to Field Agent. The amount paid by you to Field Agent in accordance with this clause in relation to any Prepaid Job must be at least equal to the total amount that will be owed to Agents upon completion and acceptance of the specified Prepaid Job and any amounts payable to Field Agent in connection with that job. If you agree with Field Agent to pay for a job other than as set out above, you acknowledge that the Services to be provided as part of the Prepaid Job may not be available until such funds are available for disbursement to an Agent. After you accept of the Services comprised in a Prepaid Job, the Payment Service will debit the amount owed to each Agent in relation to the Prepaid Job from the Client's Prepaid Job Account or as otherwise held by Field Agent in relation to the job, and credit each Agent's Payment Account that amount.

Agents may disburse funds from their Payment Account by the following methods, at their option: (i) to PayPal; or (ii) by written request, through physical cheques in Australian dollars. Cheque disbursements may be subject to additional fees, registration and documentary requirements.

We reserve the right to cancel your Payment Account for any reason.

In the event there is an error in the processing of any transaction described above, you authorize us to initiate debit or credit entries to your PayPal Account or your Payment Account, as applicable, to correct such error, provided that any such correction is made in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, and to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate the error, which may include ordering a credit report, performing credit checks, or verifying the information you provide against third party databases. In such instances we will provide you with such details as we deem appropriate in relation to the debit or credit. If we are unable to debit any PayPal Account you select for any reason, you authorize us to resubmit the debit, plus any applicable fees, to any other bank account you have (or, in the case of any fees that are owed under this Agreement, to deduct such amounts from the funds in your Payment Account). Your authorizations will remain in full force and effect until we receive written notification from you of any termination. Any termination will become effective as soon as we have had a reasonable amount of time to act on it, but in any event not later than thirty (30) days after written notice of termination is received by us in accordance with this clause.
5.5 Restrictions and Limitations: We reserve the right to terminate or suspend any Payment Account, or to delay the availability of any Prepaid Jobs, transfer or disbursement of any amounts, in each case for any reason in our sole discretion, including, without limitation, if we believe that a Client or Agent is in violation of this Agreement. As a security measure, we reserve the right to restrict the transfer to Agents of any amounts paid by a Client in relation to a Prepaid Job for up to three (3) Business Days following any purchase. Other than a credit to an Agent's Payment Account for Services rendered by such Agent, amounts held in Payment Accounts cannot be transferred to other Clients or Agents. If Field Agent terminates this Agreement because you have violated the Policies then (i) any Services that you have requested and that have been completed by Agents but not yet accepted by you will be deemed accepted and the applicable payments will be remitted to the Agents and deducted from your Prepaid Job Account; and (ii) the balance remaining with Field Agent in respect of any Prepaid Job (if any) will become the property of Field Agent.
5.6 Our Liability: We (and our Affiliates) act only in the capacity of a payment processor in facilitating the transactions between Clients and Agents. We will only be responsible for initiating purchases of Prepaid Jobs and the transfers or disbursements at the direction of Clients and Agents. We will be entitled to rely on the instructions of Clients and Agents without any further inquiry or liability whatsoever. We will not be liable if we are not able to complete a transaction for any reason, including, but not limited to:(1) If any system or equipment was not working properly and you knew or had been advised about the breakdown before you initiated the transaction; (2) If you do not have enough available funds in your Prepaid Job Account to pay for Services provided by Agents for you ; (3) If circumstances beyond our control (such as, but not limited to, power outages, fire, flood, mechanical or systems failure) prevent the proper execution of the transaction, despite reasonable precautions we have taken; (4) If your transaction is intercepted by legal process or other encumbrances restricting transfer, or your participation in the Site has been terminated or suspended for security purposes; (5) If we are unable to confirm your identity or have reason to believe that the transfer requested is unauthorized; or (6) If you have not provided us with correct, current and complete payment information.
