General Terms and Conditions for the use of Zettle by PayPal
Last update and effective as of: 10 February 2021
These general terms and conditions, including the terms, policies, guidelines and instructions referred to herein, (“General Terms and Conditions”) is an agreement between PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A. (R.C.S. Luxembourg B 118 349), a duly licenced Luxembourg credit institution under the prudential supervision of the Luxembourg financial sector authority, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier, (“Paypal” “we”, “our” or “us”) and you, the sole trader, company or other business entity having created an account with us (the “Merchant”, “you” or “your”), governing your access to and use of our services, including our mobile software applications (the “App”), hardware, our websites (the “Website”) and other products and services provided under the Zettle by PayPal brand (together, the “Services”).
PayPal is deemed authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority from 1 January 2021. The nature and extent of consumer protections may differ from those for firms based in the UK. Details of the Temporary Permissions Regime, which allows EEA-based firms to operate in the UK for a limited period while seeking full authorisation, are available on the Financial Conduct Authority’s website.
Any reference made to ”PayPal” or “PayPal Group” included in these General Terms and Conditions or any of the Additional Terms (defined below) shall mean the group of companies, which each directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with us.
By creating and using a Zettle Account (defined below) you accept and agree to comply with these General Terms and Conditions. You also accept and agree to comply with to any additional terms and conditions specific to the products and services you use (“Additional Terms”), such as the Payment Terms and Conditions, which become part of your agreement with us. If you do not agree to these General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms that apply to you (or if you do not have the right to bind the company or other business entity you are representing), you are not permitted to access or use the Services.
Where applicable, you assume responsibility for ensuring that any of your employees or other representatives using the Services on your behalf, have read, understood and accept to be bound by these General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms.
It is important that you understand the risks and liabilities associated with the use of the Services, and you should read these General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms carefully before agreeing to them and before you start using the Services.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the content of these General Terms and Conditions or any Additional Terms or would like to get a better understanding of how the Services work, please do not hesitate to contact us.
PART 1 – Access to and use of the services
In order to use the Services, you must create an account with us: a “Zettle Account”. The Services are only made available to sole traders, companies or other entities that operate a business selling goods and services, and are not available for personal, family or household purposes. You may create only one Zettle Account, unless we approve the creation of additional Zettle Accounts.
You must register as a sole trader or as a company or other business entity accepted by us. If you create a Zettle Account as a sole trader, you warrant to us that you are not acting on behalf of, or for the benefit of, anyone else. If you create a Zettle Account as a company or other business entity, you warrant to us that you are duly authorised to create a Zettle Account in the name of that company or business entity.
If you create a Zettle Account as a company or other business entity, the terms “Merchant”, “you” or “your” will mean you, the natural person, as well as such company or other business entity. You further warrant to us that: a) you are either a legal resident or citizen of the United Kingdom or a company or other business entity duly authorised to conduct business in said country, b) you will use the Services solely for trade, business or professional purposes in such country, c) you will not directly or indirectly use the Services in or into any other country unless otherwise agreed with us, and d) you, as a natural person, are at least 18 years of age and have full legal capacity to accept these General Terms and Conditions and use of the Services in the manner prescribed by us. If you register on behalf of a company or under a business name, you represent that you are a legal representative of the business, and that you are authorised to provide any information about the business, and accept these General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms on its behalf.
You will be required to provide an email address and set a password to access your Zettle Account and the Services. You may also, on an on-going basis, be required to provide certain information about you and your business, including your name, registered trade name, registered address, names you are doing business under, business addresses, purpose and nature of your business, a complete description of your products and services and, where applicable, information about beneficial owners and principals of your business. You must provide accurate and complete information when creating your Zettle Account. You must also make sure that all information that you provide is and remains accurate, complete and up-to-date. You must inform us of any changes and update the information in your Zettle Account accordingly without undue delay.
We reserve the right to suspend your access to and use of the Services and to terminate and close your Zettle Account if you provide us with inaccurate, untrue, or incomplete information, or if you fail to comply with any account registration requirements. Should you fail to comply with these provisions, you agree that this will also entitle us to cease the provision of any other PayPal services to you.
2. Account credentials
You are responsible for ensuring that your email address, password and other personalised security features which you use to access your Zettle Account and the Services ("Account Credentials") are kept safe and secure. You must take all reasonable steps to keep your Account Credentials secret and not share them with anyone, other than appropriately authorised employees or other representatives within your business.
You must notify us immediately through our Website or by contacting our customer success team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you discover or suspect that any of your Account Credentials have been lost or stolen or that someone else has used or attempted to use your Zettle Account using your Account Credentials without your authorisation.
Through your Zettle Account settings, you may create sub-accounts and authorise your employees and other eligible representatives (each, an “Authorised User”) to use such sub-accounts to access your Zettle Account and use the Services on your behalf for your business. You must register each Authorised User with us and create a username and password for each Authorised User to be able to access your Zettle Account and use the Services. We reserve the right to limit the number of Authorised Users you may have, or refuse the registration of an Authorised User. Your Authorised Users will have the ability to perform those limited actions that you select in your Zettle Account settings.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your Authorised Users comply with these General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms when using your Zettle Account and the Services. We reserve the right to deny any Authorised User access to your Zettle Account and the Services at any time. You agree that you are at all times liable for the actions or omissions of your Authorised Users and that you will indemnify and hold us harmless from any actions or omissions of your Authorised Users in connection with their use or misuse of your Zettle Account and the Services.
4. Our role
The Services will enable you to, among other things, account for cash and certain other accepted payment methods through the use of the App installed on your smartphone or other compatible mobile device as well as to collect, analyse and track information generated in connection with such transactions.
You agree that we may at any time update or modify the Services. We will always attempt to notify you of any such updates or modifications with reasonable notice in accordance with section 18. However, we reserve the right to implement such updates and modifications with immediate effect without prior notice to you where necessary to maintain the security of our systems or to comply with applicable laws, rules and regulations.
Your ability to use the Services is dependent on services, including software applications, provided to you by third parties (such as Internet, data traffic, network services and point of sale solutions). Such third parties may charge you fees for accessing and using such services and applications to use the Services and you are solely responsible to pay such fees. We do not own, control or have any responsibility or liability for any third party services or software applications you select to use in connection with the Services. We do not accept or assume any responsibility or liability for the operation or security of any third party services or software applications, for your inability to use the Services as a result of any third party services or software applications or for your breach of the terms of your contract with any third party services or software applications as a result of using the Services or otherwise.
5. Service levels
Although we will use all commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Services continuously, we do not warrant that the Services will be free from interruptions, delays or errors caused by our systems or other third party services providers, general Internet failures or force majeure. You must notify us without undue delay through our Website or by contacting our customer success team at email@example.com if you experience any interruptions, delays or errors in the Services, and provide all reasonably requested information and assistance in identifying and resolving such interruptions, delays or errors.
From time to time we will perform maintenance and upgrades of the Services, which may result in interruptions, delays or errors in the Services. Although we will do our best to notify you in advance of any planned maintenance in accordance with section 18, we cannot guarantee that such notification will always be provided.
6. Customer service and complaints
We will provide you with regular customer services by email, web or telephone during normal business hours to help resolve any issues relating to your use of the Services, the App, the Website and your Zettle Account. You are solely responsible for providing service to your customers for any and all issues related to your products and services. You can contact us at any time if you have any complaints pertaining to our Services through the Website.
If the outcome of any complaint about our Services, after completing the complaint escalation process, is not to your satisfaction, you can escalate it by contacting:
• the UK Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) within six (6) months of the date we send our response to you . The FOS is a free, independent service, which might be able to settle a complaint between you and us. You may obtain further information regarding the FOS and contact the FOS at https://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk
• Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF). The CSSF is the authority responsible for the prudential supervision of companies in the financial sector in Luxembourg, like us.

Your use of the Services requires that you have a compatible mobile device. While we do our best to keep an up-to-date list of compatible mobile devices on our Website, we do not warrant that the Services will be compatible with your mobile device. You may not use the Services together with a mobile device that has been modified contrary to the manufacturer’s software or hardware guidelines.
In order to use the Services, you must download and install the App. You may download the App from the Apple ‘App Store’ or Google Play.

The App may also be available in other formats, such as in software development kit format.
9. Errors and unauthorised or illegal use
You must notify us immediately through our Website or by contacting our customer success team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you discover or suspect that there has been an error or unauthorised or illegal use of your Zettle Account and, where possible, change your Account Credentials to prevent any further errors and/or unauthorised or illegal use. You must provide us all information and documentation in your possession as to the circumstances of any such error and/or unauthorised or illegal use of your Zettle Account and take all reasonable steps requested by us to assist in an investigation.
You are responsible for determining any and all taxes assessed, incurred, or required to be collected, reported, paid, or withheld for any reason for the sale of your products and services and any payments you receive in connection with your use of our Services (“Taxes”). You are solely responsible for collecting, withholding, reporting and remitting correct Taxes to the appropriate tax authority. We are not obligated to, nor will we determine whether Taxes apply or assume any liability in relation thereto, or calculate, collect, report, or remit any Taxes to any tax authority arising from any transaction.
11. Your privacy
We are responsible for protecting the security of personal information in our possession. We have implemented administrative, technical and organisational procedures to protect personal information that is stored in our servers from unauthorised access and accidental loss, modification or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorised third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use such information for improper purposes.
12. Privacy of others
You confirm and agree that you will protect and, save where required by law, not disclose, register or otherwise process any information that you may receive about your customers or other third parties while using the Services. You must notify us through our Website or by contacting our customer success team at email@example.com without undue delay if you become aware of or suspect any unauthorised access to or disclosure of such information. You may not disclose or distribute any information about your customers or other third parties or use such information for marketing or other purposes unless you have ensured an applicable legal ground in accordance with applicable data protection laws prior to such disclosure or distribution. You are solely responsible for compliance with any applicable privacy laws and regulations of your specific jurisdiction, including current requirements for e.g. registration or notification to the relevant supervisory authority, where applicable, implementing appropriate security measures and providing customers and third parties with information regarding the use of their personal data, including but not limited to how we (or other companies within the PayPal Group) may use such personal data.

You agree that you will not upload or provide any Content unless you have created that Content yourself or you have permission from the content owner to do so. You grant us, our affiliates and our successors a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid, transferable, and sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, prepare derivative works of, distribute, publicly perform and publicly display your Content in any media in order to provide and promote the Services.

The Services are licenced and not sold. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you in these General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms.

You further acknowledge that, by acceptance of your submission, we do not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to us, or developed by our employees, or obtained from sources other than you.
21. Third party websites
Our Website may contain links to third party websites. The inclusion of any website link does not imply an approval, endorsement or recommendation by us. You agree that you access any such website at your own risk, and that such site is not governed by the terms and conditions contained in these General Terms and Conditions or any Additional Terms. We expressly disclaim any liability for these websites. Your browsing and interaction on any other website, including those that have a link on our website, is subject to that website’s own rules and policies.

These General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms are effective upon the date you agree to them and will remain in force until terminated by you or by us.
You may terminate these General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms at any time by closing your Zettle Account in accordance with the instructions available on our Website or in your Zettle Account or upon 30 days’ prior notice by contacting our customer success team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may terminate these General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms or suspend or close your Zettle Account at our convenience by providing you with 30 days’ prior notice, or otherwise at any time upon prior notice to you in accordance with section 18.
We may also terminate these General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms or suspend or close your Zettle Account without prior notice to you if: a) you breach or otherwise do not comply with any provision of these General Terms and Conditions, any Additional Terms or the PayPal User Agreement, b) we have reason to believe that you are in any way involved in any fraudulent activity, money laundering, terrorism financing or other criminal activity, c) you pose an unacceptable credit or fraud risk to us, or d) you are declared insolvent, become subject to debt relief proceedings, enter into composition proceedings or similar debt relief arrangements, are declared bankrupt or enter into restructuring proceedings. If we are entitled to terminate these General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms or suspend or close your Zettle Account, you agree that this will also entitle us to terminate your PayPal Account (as defined in the Payment Terms and Conditions).

We will not be liable to you for compensation, reimbursement or damages in connection with any termination of these General Terms and Conditions, any Additional Terms or closing or suspension of your Zettle Account. Any termination of these General Terms and Conditions, any Additional Terms or closure or suspension of your Zettle Account does not relieve you of your obligations under these General Terms and Conditions or any Additional Terms.
23. Amendments and changes
We have the right to amend, delete or add to these General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms and change, delete, discontinue or impose conditions on any feature or aspect of the Services at any time. We will give you 30 days' notice of any change, however always at least in accordance with mandatory law, in accordance with section 18 with the change taking effect once the 30 day notice period has passed, except that the 30 day notice period will not apply where a change is required by the Card Scheme Rules (as defined in the Payment Terms and Conditions) or applicable law or relates to the addition of a new service, extra functionality to the existing Services or any other change which we believe in our reasonable opinion to neither reduce your rights nor increase your responsibilities. Under such circumstances, the change will be made without prior notice to you and will be effective immediately.
If you do not accept any change, you must close your Zettle Account. If you do not object to a change by closing your Zettle Account within the 30 days’ notice period, you will be deemed to have accepted it. While you may close your Zettle Account at any time and without charge, note that you may still be liable to us after you terminate these General Terms and Conditions or any Additional Terms for any liabilities you may have incurred and are responsible for prior to terminating these General Terms and Conditions or any Additional Terms.
These General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms, and any rights and/or obligations thereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without our prior written consent, but may be transferred and assigned by us without your consent or other restrictions.
25. Applicable law and disputes
These General Terms and Conditions and any Additional Terms, and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with their subject matter (including non-contractual disputes or claims) will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Luxembourg.
Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or in connection with these General Terms and Conditions or any Additional Terms, or the breach, termination or invalidity thereof, will be submitted to the exclusive jurisdiction of the competent courts of Luxembourg City.
26. Entire agreement
These General Terms and Conditions and any applicable Additional Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the provision of the Services. In the event of a conflict between these General Terms and Conditions, any Additional Terms and any other agreement or policy, these General Terms and Conditions will prevail on the subject matter of these General Terms and Conditions and any applicable Additional Terms will prevail on the subject matter of such applicable Additional Terms unless otherwise set out in these General Terms and Conditions or Additional Terms, respectively. In the event of a conflict between these General Terms and Conditions and any other agreement or policy on a subject matter of more than one set of terms, agreement or policy, then the following order of interpretation shall apply: i) these General Terms and Conditions, ii) Additional Terms, and iii) any other agreement or policy, unless otherwise explicitly set out in any of these documents.
Except as expressly provided herein, these General Terms and Conditions and any applicable Additional Terms describe our entire liability to you and your exclusive remedies with respect to your access and use of the Services. If any provision of these General Terms and Conditions or any applicable Additional Terms (or portion thereof) is held to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then it will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law, and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. The rights conferred upon us in these General Terms and Conditions and any applicable Additional Terms are not intended to be exclusive of each other or of any other rights and remedies we may have at law or in equity.
27. Force majeure
No party will be liable for delays in processing or other non-performance caused by such events as fires, telecommunications or internet failures, utility failures, power failures, equipment failures, employment strike, riots, war, terrorist attack, non-performance of vendors or suppliers or other causes over which the respective party has no reasonable control, except that this will not affect or excuse your liabilities and obligations under section 15.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, a party shall not be liable under these General Terms and Conditions or any applicable Additional Terms (or portion thereof) in cases of abnormal and unforeseeable circumstances beyond the control of such party to the extent the consequences of such circumstances would have been unavoidable, or where we are bound by other legal obligations covered by EU or national law.
Any provision that is reasonably necessary to accomplish or enforce the purpose of these General Terms and Conditions and any applicable Additional Terms will survive and remain in effect in accordance with its respective terms upon the termination of these General Terms and Conditions and any applicable Additional Terms.
PART 3 – Partner applications and additional services
29. Partner applications
Through your Zettle Account settings, you may give, remove and manage authorisations for certain third party service providers (”Partners”) to take certain actions on your behalf by connecting to your Zettle Account, such as to access and retrieve your Zettle Account data. By authorising a third party software application (a “Partner App”) to connect to your Zettle Account you are authorising and instructing us to permit the Partner App to take such actions as are permitted by your authorisations. A Partner App, once authorised, will continue to have access to your Zettle Account and be authorised to take such actions as are permitted by your authorisations until you actively withdraw your authorisation by changing the settings in your Zettle Account. You acknowledge that the access to your Zettle Account data by a Partner and the use of any service of a Partner is governed solely by the terms and conditions and policies of such Partner. You are solely responsible for your access to and use of Partner Apps and you are therefore advised to carefully read any terms and conditions and policies concerning your access to and use of Partner Apps. You acknowledge and agree that you will not hold us responsible for, and will indemnify us from, any liability arising from the actions or inactions of any Partners in connection with any authorisations you give.
30. Additional services and subscriptions
We (or other companies within the PayPal Group) may offer additional Zettle by PayPal branded services as part of the Services to you subject to you agreeing to the Additional Terms applicable to such additional services. Where you and we (or another company within the PayPal Group) agree on the provision of such Services, the Additional Terms governing such Services will apply between us (or such other company within the PayPal Group) and you in respect of such Services. To the extent provided for in the Additional Terms, these General Terms and Conditions will apply in respect of such Services and such Services will be deemed included in the definition of “Services” in these General Terms and Conditions.
We (or another company within the PayPal group) may offer one or more of such Services as a subscription (“Subscription”).
