What is GiftKash?
GiftKash is a promotional marketing service that enables our customers to send digital gift cards. When you send GiftKash, the recipients receive a personalized digital gift card with reminders to keep you informed when GiftKash is used or about to expire. Merchants make “same as cash” offers (“GiftKash”) available to us, sometimes at a discount. For participating merchants, we make the GiftKash available on a delayed payment basis, with valid credit card or bank account information, and collect payment if/when the GiftKash is redeemed. For those merchants, when GiftKash is redeemed, we immediately bill the credit card or bank account on file and make an electronic payment to the merchant. For traditional gift cards, the customer's credit card or bank account is billed at the point of purchase.
Eligibility and Account Registration
You hereby authorize Company, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate your identity and/or authenticate your identity and account information and, for business accounts, your company or employer. This may include asking you for further information and/or documentation about your account usage or identity, or requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your email address, telephone number or financial instruments, and verifying your information against third party databases or through other sources. This process would be for internal purposes.
In order to manage risk, Company may limit the funding sources available for your use to fund any particular transaction. For example, we may limit your funding sources for a particular transaction to a preauthorized credit card limit or to debit cards on your checking account.
When you place an order and send GiftKash, we use your credit card and/or bank account as your funding source. When you do so, you are authorizing us, on your behalf, to make an electronic transfer from your credit card and/or bank account. For these transactions, Company will make electronic transfers via Converge in the amount you specify. The payment will show on your statement as GIFTKASH LLC. You agree that redemption of the gift card you ordered and sent constitutes your authorization to Company to make the transfer, and with that authorization, you will not be able to cancel the electronic transfer. Company may resubmit any debit you authorized that is returned for insufficient or uncollected funds, except as otherwise provided by applicable law.
When you place an order and send GiftKash, you are liable to Company for the full amount of the payment, plus any fees if the payment is later invalidated for any reason. This means that, in addition to any other liability, you will be responsible for the amount of the payment, plus applicable fees if the account associated with your GiftKash Account does not have adequate funds to cover the amount of the payment. If Company is unable to recover the funds from your primary funding source, Company may attempt to contact you, Company may recover the funds from your alternate funding sources, or may take other legal actions to collect the amount due, to the extent allowed by applicable law.
To secure your performance of this Agreement, you hereby authorize Company to bill your credit and/or bank account for any payments due immediately and agree to make valid primary and secondary funding sources available as necessary to keep your account balance paid. In the event we determine that you don’t have adequate funds available to pay for GiftKash you’ve sent, we reserve the right to notify any gift recipients who have not redeemed the giftkash you’ve sent, that the giftkash value is suspended and it’s unusable until the buyer provides an adequate funding source. We will normally provide 24 hours to provide an adequate funding source, determined at Company’s sole discretion, however we reserve the right to make these notifications at anytime your funding source is deemed insufficient.
Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, we have the right to prohibit your access to the GiftKash, including without limitation by deactivating your account, and to refuse future access to the GiftKash by you or your affiliates.

It is your responsibility to protect your account information. You agree to pay for any GiftKash redeemed from orders placed with your account.
