As a provider of financial services, BigPay also plays an important role in the fight against financial crime, money laundering and terrorist financing activities and as a result, the Applicable Laws require us to obtain, verify and record personal and private information about our customers and to conduct periodic account reviews. These processes often include steps that involve additional verification and validation of identity, payment or funding sources and instructions, and of other Transaction information which may require us to contact you further for the relevant information, which may result in delay in the processing of a Transaction until such verification and validation is satisfactorily completed. In the event that your Transaction is subject to any process for additional verification and/or validation (including AML compliance checks), your Transaction may be put on hold while we collect and confirm the source of the funds and complete the verification and validation process.
We reserve the right to refuse to process Transactions for certain individuals, including without limitation, individuals from sanctioned or high-risk countries, individuals who have been blacklisted by any financial institutions, licensed banks or e-money issuers in Singapore or abroad, individuals who are included in our internal lists and the relevant money laundering and terrorism financing information sources, as well as global lists or databases provided by local or foreign authorities, and we are not obliged to give reasons for so refusing.

By signing a transaction, voucher or invoice slip or entering your PIN or other identifying number or password at an electronic banking facility, you indicate your acceptance that the transaction amount is correct. In addition, BigPay reserves the right to block, suspend or decline any Transaction at its sole and absolute discretion.
If you use your Card to purchase goods and/or services through the online internet sites or portals, you shall be solely responsible for the security of such use at all times. You agree that the entry of your Card information on the internet shall be sufficient proof of the authenticity of such instructions. We are under no obligation to verify the identity or the authority of the person entering your Card information and we shall not be liable for acting on such use of your Card regardless of whether the person is authorized or unauthorized and regardless of the circumstances prevailing at the time of the transaction. However, we reserve the right not to process any such transaction over the internet if we have any reason to doubt its authenticity or if in our opinion it is suspicious in nature, unlawful or otherwise improper to do so or for any other reason. Notwithstanding the above, BigPay reserves the right to block, suspend or decline any Transaction at its sole and absolute discretion. For all transactions processed via the two factor authentication mechanism, we shall not entertain any disputes from you with regards to the fact that you did not authorize or participate in the transaction nor will you be able to raise a chargeback claim for such transactions which have been processed under the two factor authentication mechanism. In such cases of two factor authentication transactions, we will only allow chargeback due to no authorization, processing errors, service not rendered and other card acceptance violations as stipulated in the VISA card chargeback rules.
ATM Transactions and Personal Identification Number (“PIN”)
Subject to any restrictions stipulated or imposed by us, the MAS or pursuant to Applicable Laws, for the purposes of effecting cash withdrawal using the Card at any ATM under the VISA payment network, you must use your PIN. You may set and change the PIN through the Mobile App or any other mode as determined by us from time to time.
The PIN is strictly confidential and you should never disclose your PIN to any person under any circumstances or by any means whatsoever. You should not keep any written record of your PIN at any place or in any manner which may enable a third party to have access to it and/or make use of your Card. Failure to comply with this requirement will expose you to the consequences of theft and/ or unauthorized use of your Card, for which we will not be in any way be responsible or liable to you. You shall hold us free from all claims and liabilities from all parties whomsoever arising from the use of your PIN whether authorized or otherwise.
Pay without a PIN
Contactless Payment allows you to pay amounts up to SGD300 without entering your PIN on applicable Contactless Readers. You can pay at applicable Contactless Readers which are contactless enabled.
The first time you make a Contactless Payment, you may be asked to enter your PIN. After that, you can pay amounts up to SGD300 via the Card’s contactless functionality. When you make a Contactless Payment, you must check the amount and hold your Card against the Contactless Reader. The Contactless Reader will show whether the payment has been successful.
We may also require other activation and/or authentication procedures as we may at our sole and absolute discretion prescribe from time to time. When you tap, wave or touch your Card against the Contactless Reader, you are giving authorization for the transaction to be charged to your Card Account and for funds to be deducted from your Card in respect of the said transaction.
Cardholder’s may use the Card to effect any number of Contactless Payments on Contactless Readers provided that the value of such Contactless Payment(s) does not exceed the daily limit of SGD300. For the avoidance of doubt, the Cardholder cannot use the Card for any Contactless Payment which exceeds the daily limit of SGD300. The Cardholder must enter his PIN for any transaction in excess of SGD300.
After a number of payments, you may be asked to enter your PIN again for security reasons. If Contactless Payments are made after your Card has been lost or stolen, it will be treated in the same manner as stated in the ‘Disclosure of loss of PIN, or Loss, Stolen, or Unauthorized Use of Card’ section below
You cannot use the contactless function of the Card or make Contactless Payments for card-not-present transactions, online transactions, e-commerce transactions, recurring bill payments, cash advance transactions, funds transfer transactions, transactions performed or to be performed at any ATM. The Card also cannot be tokenized on mobile devices for any forms of Contactless Payments.
Any usage of a Card at any Contactless Reader, if and where permitted by BigPay shall be subject to such terms and conditions as BigPay and VISA may agree from time to time.
Disclosure of loss of PIN, Loss, Stolen, or Unauthorized Use of Card
You shall be and remain liable to us for any goods and services supplied by the merchants and cash withdrawals through the use of your Card whether or not you have authorized such usage. You shall use all reasonable precautions to prevent disclosure of the PIN to any unauthorized person or the loss, theft or unauthorized use of your Card.
In the event of disclosure of your PIN to any unauthorized person or the unauthorized use of your Card or your Card is lost or stolen, you must immediately freeze your Card via the Mobile App. Alternatively, you may email us at email@example.com to cancel your Card Account. You Card will be blocked once you have “frozen” it in the Mobile App. Alternatively, if you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will block your Card upon receipt of your notification. You should then send a confirmation in writing to us. As a matter of prudence, we advise you to lodge a police report immediately to substantiate your claim.
We may at our discretion on a case-to-case basis ask you for a copy of the police report confirming the incident. If we do indeed require the police report, and you are not able to provide us with a copy, we may not be able to proceed with our investigations and we shall not be responsible or be held liable for any disputes or loss suffered by you in relation to any transactions incurred from unauthorized usage of the Card. You shall be and remain liable for all transactions incurred from unauthorized usage of the Card, where investigations made by us or the police reveal that you are a party in the procurement of any merchandise or services from the merchants effected through the use of the Card by the use of any unauthorized person. You shall be liable for such unauthorized transaction before we receive written notification of the loss or theft. We may at our absolute discretion, resolve that your liability be limited to SGD1000 provided you are not found to be negligent or have not acted fraudulently.
We shall not be responsible and shall not be liable for any transaction as a result of the loss or theft or misuse of the Card, occurring prior to you reporting the loss or theft of the Card to us.
Without prejudice to our rights and notwithstanding that you may have exercised all reasonable precaution to prevent the loss or theft or unauthorized use of your PIN or your Card, and you have reported the loss or theft or unauthorized use thereof, you shall remain liable to us if you have acted fraudulently or if you were involved in the procurement of goods or services supplied by any merchant, cash advance or ATM transactions through the use of your Card by any person or if you have failed to inform us upon discovering that your PIN or Card has been lost or stolen or used for purposes unauthorized by you.
If you later find the lost or stolen Card, you should not further use the Card but shall cut it into half and dispose of it immediately or return the same to us. Upon the loss or theft of your Card or upon discovery that an unauthorized person or persons have acquired knowledge of the PIN or use of your Card not authorized by you, you may request us to issue a replacement Card and we shall have the right at our sole discretion to accept or to refuse such request without having to assign any reason whatsoever. We are under no obligation to issue a replacement Card automatically following its loss or theft.
Any replacement Card will be subjected to a replacement card fee, unless waived by us at our sole discretion. If we approve your request for a replacement Card, and upon proper verification, we will issue a new Card to you with a new account number. The balance of funds from your previous lost or stolen blocked Card Account will be transferred to the new Card Account accordingly. If we do not issue you a replacement Card, the balance in your lost or stolen Card will be refunded to you (less any applicable fees and charges) after fourteen (14) business days via cheque or by depositing it into your bank account (provided you have given us your banking account details) or in any other manner in accordance with our internal policies. BigPay will refund Available Balances in SGD only.
Card to Card Transfer (P2P)
P2P is not intended to be used for business, commercial or Merchant transactions and such use may be discontinued without notice by us at any time. We may reverse or place a hold on your transactions or place funds in reserve if evidence of business, commercial or Merchant use is discovered. If you receive and accept a P2P transfer, you are liable to us for not only the payment, but also any third-party fees that may result from a later invalidation of that payment for any reason, including, without limitation if you lose a claim or a chargeback, or if the payment is reversed. We reserve the right to charge your payment credential or take any other legal action to collect the funds to the fullest extent allowed by Applicable Laws. Use of P2P may subject you to fees, including, without limitation, those from third parties, such as reversal charges or other fees for insufficient funds if your attempted payment is rejected. P2P must be used in compliance with Applicable Laws and may not be used in connection with any illegal or illicit transaction. In addition, payments relating to the following activities are prohibited regardless of whether the activity is illegal in your location: (a) weapons, ammunition or explosives; and (b) gambling, games of skill, lotteries, raffles or fantasy sports. If illegal, illicit or otherwise prohibited transactions are reported or discovered, we reserve the right to take action including without limitation the following, without notice to you: place a hold on your transactions, place your funds in reserve, limit your ability to use payments features through the BigPay App, report the activity to the authorities or deactivate your account entirely. P2P use is at your sole risk and we assume no responsibility for the underlying transaction of funds, or the actions or identity of any transfer recipient or sender. Disputes regarding funds are between you and the sender of a payment. If a sender files a claim for a chargeback after a P2P transaction, we are not responsible for determining the veracity of claims or the disposition of the payment.
Disclosure of Passwords, Unauthorized Access
If you wish to update your profile and personal data, including but not limited to, mailing address, contact details, phone numbers, email address, and other personal particulars, you may do so by contacting our customer service. We may from time to time first verify your identity through the security protocols established by us (and which may be changed from time to time at our sole and absolute discretion) before your profile and personal information can be updated. You shall at all times keep all your passwords and security codes, security questions, security answers (including but not limited to those used for verification and authorization purposes and for access into your Card Account) secret and you shall use all reasonable precautions to prevent disclosure of the same to any unauthorized person, or third party. We shall not be responsible and shall not be liable for any loss suffered or in relation to the transactions on your Card Account or for any unauthorized transactions on your Card, if you disclose any of your passwords, security codes, security questions, security answers or any of your personal details to unauthorized parties or third parties.
Cash Withdrawal Facility

For all international transactions via ATM and/or any member institution of VISA, the exchange rates (if applicable) shall be the prevailing exchange rates which shall be determined by VISA and all such transactions shall not violate the laws existing in the country where the transactions are done. The use of your Card to obtain a cash withdrawal shall be deemed to constitute your agreement to pay all applicable fees and/or charges as prescribed from time to time. You cannot make ATM withdrawals in excess of the limits set by the respective ATM networks. Notwithstanding the above, BigPay reserves the right to block, suspend or decline any cash withdrawal Transaction at its sole and absolute discretion.

BigPay treats the security of your Account with utmost priority and to this end, we use a variety of security measures to make sure that your Account is secure. However, it is your responsibility to ensure that your Account is kept safe from unauthorized access and attempts to use it for fraudulent purposes at all times. You must ensure that you do not share access of your Account with any person other than yourself and keep your login details safe. It is your responsibility to keep your Account secure and be responsible for Transactions carried out using your Account. You should never conduct any Transactions on behalf of any third parties or allow any other individual to conduct a Transaction on your behalf. You should never use the Mobile App or submit any Transactions on a ‘jailbroken’, ‘rooted’ or otherwise modified device. In addition, you must only download or use the Mobile App on mobile devices installed with the latest and most secured operating system(s) available for the mobile device. If you find or suspect any unauthorized use of your Account or any other security breach, you must notify us immediately using any of the contact methods provided above so that we can take all the necessary steps to prevent further unauthorized use.
Where you have notified us, or we reasonably believe that your Account has been compromised, we may stop, block or suspend your access to and use of your Account and/or the Card. We also have the right to disable or change any user name or password (if possible), whether chosen by you or provided by us to ensure the security of the Account, in our sole discretion. Note that any act or omission of BigPay in relation to any steps to be taken as set out above does not make BigPay liable to you for any loss or damage arising from the result of your failure to keep your Account secure and notifying us of the same.
If you believe that a Transaction was made without your authorization, you must contact us immediately. We will conduct an investigation and may provide refunds of unauthorized Transactions unless:
you have acted fraudulently;
you have intentionally or negligently compromised the security of your Account or failed to keep the details you use to access the Account secure; or
otherwise due to termination by BigPay due to Events of Default or due to suspicious, fraudulent, unusual, irregular or unauthorized activity.
If our investigations result in any special circumstances deviating from the above and affect the outcome of your liability and/or eligibility for a refund, we will notify you. Note that we have no responsibility towards you for any loss caused by unauthorized access prior to you notifying us. A charge may also be applied for any refund request if the unauthorised use, loss, theft or misuse of the Account was caused by your error, carelessness or negligence.
In cases where we have reason to believe that you have acted fraudulently, we may decide not to allow any refund to you, investigate the circumstances further or even forward the matter to the law enforcement authorities, including the MAS. If an investigation (whether by us or the authorities) results in a finding of fraud by you, we may charge you for costs incurred by us in carrying out such investigation and further deduct these monies from your Account. If you think you have been or might be a victim of fraud, please contact us immediately.
We also regularly monitor the apps distribution platforms and will report fake mobile applications to the app distribution platforms for their further action to prevent such fake mobile applications from being made available for download by users. We also monitor sources identifying fake/phishing websites and will take the necessary action to report the same to the appropriate parties (overseeing or hosting these sites) for the same to be taken down in order to safeguard users from falling prey to scams or fraud sites guising as BigPay’s official website. In any event, users can validate the authenticity of the Mobile App through Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store, as the mobile application is signed by the Big Pay developer account. Notwithstanding, you must only download the Mobile App from either Apple’s App Store or Google’s Play Store. You must not download the Mobile App from any other app sites, websites or app forums as they will probably be fake or phishing sites which we do not authorize or approve to publish the BigPay App.
Please further read the ‘Security Alert’ provided under the ‘Security & Legal’ page on the Mobile App for further awareness on online transaction risks.
Our acceptance of any terms or payments or any waiver by us of our rights or any indulgence granted to you shall not operate to prevent us from enforcing any of our rights hereunder this Cardholder Agreement nor shall such acceptance operate as consent to the modification of any of the terms of this Cardholder Agreement in any respect nor shall such waiver of rights affect our other legal rights.
The rights and remedies provided in this Cardholder Agreement are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law.

You shall promptly notify us in writing of any change in your mailing, permanent, correspondence or office address, electronic mail address or contact number. Failure to do so may result in either your Card, information regarding the Card or your PIN being sent to the wrong person or wrong address, or your transactions being declined at point-of-sale. If this happens, we shall not be responsible or held liable for any resulting unauthorized use or misuse of value on your Card.
Any notice given by us shall be deemed given to you if sent by electronic or postal mail to the last known mailing/correspondence address of you, the Cardholder as shown on our records. BigPay shall not accept any notification of addresses (business, office, residential or correspondence address) bearing a P.O. Box number.

In the event of any inconsistencies between this Cardholder Agreement and its translation in any other language, the English language version of this Cardholder Agreement shall supersede and prevail over any other language.
