Any information provided pursuant to this Section that is Merchant Confidential Information will be treated as such in accordance with the Agreement.

5. Fraudulent Transactions

5.1 The Parties will work together to prevent fraudulent Customer transactions and minimize the associated risk of loss. Merchant will designate an individual who will serve as the single point of contact for fraud matters related to the Services.

5.2 Except as otherwise stated in the Agreement, Affirm assumes the risk of loss resulting from fraud by Customers with respect to Successful Transactions. Merchant assumes the risk of loss resulting from fraud (a) caused by Merchant or Merchant’s employees, contractors, representatives, or agents, (b) if applicable, caused by Merchant’s third-party sellers selling goods and/or services through a Merchant Channel or such third-party sellers’ employees, contractors, representatives, or agents, and/or (c) in connection with a Customer changing information (including shipping information) previously communicated to Affirm in the checkout flow after Affirm has approved such Customer and prior to the order being submitted to Merchant in the checkout flow (an “Updated Checkout”), unless Merchant requests Affirm’s approval via email to internationalorderreview@affirm.com and Affirm provides prior written approval. Affirm may terminate the Agreement immediately for Merchant’s breach of the foregoing. After a Customer’s order is submitted to Merchant in the checkout flow, Merchant will notify Affirm of any shipping address changes by sending updated order information via the Update Transaction API (as described in the Documentation).

If Affirm discovers that a Successful Transaction is fraudulent after the applicable sale is Captured, but before the applicable Merchant Product is delivered or otherwise made available to Customer, and notifies Merchant (such notice, “Affirm Fraud Notice”), Merchant will use best efforts to communicate with the applicable carrier to recall the shipment, or, as applicable for services or electronically delivered Merchant Product, cancel the provision of the applicable Merchant Product. Merchant will respond to the Affirm Fraud Notice within 24 hours and will include (a) the current status of the order; (b) what actions are being taken with respect to the fraudulent transaction; and (c) if the Merchant Product has already shipped, the tracking information, where applicable.

For each Successful Transaction, Merchant will pay Fees provided herein, unless otherwise stated in the Agreement. A sale is “Captured” when a Merchant has fulfilled the Authorized transaction to the Customer by making Merchant Product available to the Customer except where Merchant has elected to automatically capture. The definition of “Captured” related to Successful Transactions resulting from a Customer’s use of a Card may include sales for which a Customer pre-authorizes the projected gross transaction total.

9.2 Payouts. Affirm, its Affiliate, or its bank partner will disburse to Merchant amounts equal to the total amount of Successful Transactions not already disbursed to Merchant less, as applicable, any Payable Amounts (each, a “Payout”). Based on Merchant’s account history and/or Affirm’s periodic risk evaluation, Affirm may, in its sole and reasonable discretion, limit the Payout in whole or in part to Merchant during a certain time period. Payouts will be disbursed to Merchant’s Bank Account, or, at Merchant’s direction, in whole or in part, directly into a deposit account for the benefit of Merchant. Following disbursement of a Payout in accordance with the above, Affirm will not be liable to Merchant for Merchant’s receipt of such Payout.

Merchant will provide Affirm with any necessary documentation related to Affirm’s, its Affiliates’, or its bank partners’ authorization to debit the applicable Bank Account.

In connection with a Complete Payment, Merchant will pay Affirm the lowest activated Fees set forth in the Agreement, unless otherwise expressly stated in the Order Form. To the extent an Upfront Payment is required and as applicable, Merchant appoints Affirm Loan Services, LLC and/or Affirm Payments, LLC as its payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting such Upfront Payment from Customers on behalf of Merchant and such Upfront Payment will be treated as received by Merchant upon receipt by Affirm Loan Services, LLC and/or Affirm Payments, LLC, as applicable.

17. Dispute Resolution. 

17.1 Arbitration. Except with respect to the specific aspect of any Dispute that reasonably requires injunctive relief as a remedy (in which case, the applicable Party may seek injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction located in the Northern District of California or a California state court located in San Francisco), any Dispute will be determined by final and binding arbitration conducted by JAMS according to the rules and procedures in effect at the time the arbitration is commenced. Disputes with amounts claimed greater than $250,000 will apply the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, and Disputes with amounts claimed less than or equal to $250,000 will apply the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted before a single neutral arbitrator in San Francisco, California. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. This clause will not preclude either Party from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. In all arbitrations, each Party will bear the expense of its own counsel, experts, witnesses, administrative fees and expenses, and preparation and presentation of evidence at the arbitration. Arbitration proceedings and information related to them will be deemed and maintained as Confidential Information of each Party, including the nature and details of the Dispute, evidence produced, testimony given, and the outcome of the Dispute, unless agreed otherwise or such information was already in the public domain or was independently obtained. Merchant and Affirm, and all witnesses, advisors, and arbitrators will share such information only as necessary to prepare for or conduct arbitration or other legal proceeding, or enforcement of the outcome, unless additional disclosure is required by Applicable Law. 

17.2 Governing Law. The Agreement and performance under the Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California notwithstanding any conflict of law rules; provided, however, that transactions under the Agreement may involve matters of interstate commerce, and notwithstanding the provisions in this paragraph referencing applicable substantive law, the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16) will govern the agreement to arbitrate. To the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to the Agreement, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof, including whether any claim is arbitrable, (“Dispute”), whether in arbitration or in court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, each Party knowingly and irrevocably waives any right to trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim arising out of or relating to the Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated between the Parties.

18. Notices, Acceptances and Approvals. All notices, acceptances, approvals, and other communications provided pursuant to the Merchant Agreement will be in writing, which may be provided electronically, and deemed duly given in accordance with the Merchant Agreement.
