Please read carefully the terms and conditions of this end user license agreement (EULA) before downloading, installing or using the software application known as PayNowlink (App) provided by PayNow Pty Ltd (PayNow). This is a legal agreement between PayNow and you.
PayNow integrates the services provided by Stripe Payments Australia Pty Ltd (Stripe) into an App to facilitate you accepting your customer’s payments (Platform Services). PayNow and Stripe are independent entities, and nothing in this EULA does or attempts to represent any partnership, agency, or employment relationship between PayNow and Stripe.
To provide you the Platform Services, you agree that in inputting into the App the relevant transaction amount agreed between you and your customer and generating a link, you are creating a unique Stripe Checkout Session which represents the details of your customer’s intent to purchase. After redirecting your customer to a Checkout Session, Stripe presents a payment form where your customer can complete their purchase. You agree that it will be at the complete discretion of PayNow to refund you any commission or fee that it takes in providing the Platform Services, including in the event where your customer’s payment is dishonoured, refused, rejected or fails for any reason whatsoever.
In order for PayNow to provide you with the Platform Services, you agree to create a standard, or utilise your existing, Connected Account with Stripe, consistent with Standard Onboarding as that term is used in the Connect Platform Agreement. You must agree to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement prior to using your Connected Account with Stripe and the App with PayNow. In creating a Connected Account, it is your responsibility to provide sufficient data to enable Stripe to validate your account. PayNow will not prepopulate any data on your behalf. PayNow will only engage in Activity on your Connected Account to the extent that it is doing so as an agent on behalf of the Connected Account (as a merchant payee) for the limited purpose of processing or acceptance of payments using the Stripe Service.
By downloading, installing or using the App you acknowledge and agree, in addition to the above, that:
- your use of the App in conjunction with the Stripe Service is solely at your own risk;
- the App is licensed, not sold to you and you may use the App only as set forth in this EULA;
- you acknowledge that third party terms and fees may apply to the use and operation of your mobile device in connection with your use of the App, such as your carrier’s terms of service, and fees for phone service, data access, or messaging capabilities, and that you are solely responsible for payment of any and all such fees; and
- as set forth in this EULA, the App is provided “as is”.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ABOVE TERMS (AS DESCRIBED IN FURTHER DETAIL BELOW) YOU MAY NOT DOWNLOAD, INSTALL OR USE THE APP.
MODIFICATION OF THE EULA. PayNow reserves the right to modify and/or change any of the terms and conditions of this EULA at any time and without prior notice. If PayNow materially modifies this EULA it will make reasonable efforts to notify you of the change. For example, we may send a message to your email address, if we have one on file, or generate a pop-up or similar notification when you access the App or the Service for the first time after such material changes are made. By continuing to use the App after PayNow has posted a modification of this EULA, you agree to be bound by the modified EULA. If the modified EULA is not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to discontinue the use of and uninstall the App. This Agreement will also govern any software upgrades and/or updates provided by PayNow that upgrade and/or supplement the App, unless such upgrades and/or updates are accompanied by a separate license, in which case the terms of that separate license will apply.
LIMITED LICENSE. Conditioned upon your compliance with the terms and conditions of this EULA, PayNow hereby grants to you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, personal, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, non-assignable license to install and use the executable form of the App solely for your personal use on a device (whether mobile device or other) owned or controlled by you. PayNow reserves all rights in the App not expressly granted to you in this EULA.
PHONE SETTINGS AND UNINSTALL PROCEDURES. As part of the installation process of the App, you may be changing your mobile device settings. By installing the App, you agree you have approved such changes. Such changes may include, without limitation, the allowing software updates of the App once a new version is released and showing notifications from the App. To uninstall the App, you may use the standard uninstall procedures offered by your device’s operating system and/or the procedures outlined in PayNow’s Frequently Asked Questions (https://paynow-app.com/faqs/can-i-disconnect-my-stripe-account-from-paynow/).
USE RESTRICTIONS. You may not use the App in any manner that could: (i) damage, disable, overburden, or impair the App (or any server or networks connected to the App), or (ii) interfere with any third party’s use and/or enjoyment of the App (or any server or networks connected to the App). Except as expressly specified in this EULA, you may not: (a) copy or modify the App; (b) transfer, sublicense, lease, lend, rent or otherwise distribute the App to any third party; or (c) use the App in any unlawful manner, for any unlawful purpose, or in any manner inconsistent with this EULA.
You agree and permit PayNow to take all reasonable steps to ensure that you do not use Stripe Service in violation of the Stripe Services Agreement or for any activity that is expressly prohibited, including those activities listed at Prohibited Businesses List (https://stripe.com/prohibited_businesses).
You acknowledge and agree that portions of the App, including, without limitation, the source code and the specific design and structure of individual modules or programs, constitute or contain trade secrets of PayNow and its licensors. Accordingly, you agree not to disassemble, decompile or otherwise reverse engineer any components of the App provided in object code or any other PayNow products or services, in whole or in part, or permit or authorize a third party to do so, except to the extent such activities are expressly permitted by law notwithstanding this prohibition.
RESERVATION OF RIGHTS. The software, content, visual interfaces, interactive features, information, graphics, design, compilation, computer code and all other elements of the App (the “PayNowlink Materials”), are protected by copyright laws of various jurisdictions, and all other relevant intellectual property and proprietary rights, and applicable laws.

TERM AND TERMINATION. This EULA will remain in effect until terminated. The EULA, and your rights and licenses hereunder, will terminate immediately upon your breach of the EULA. You may terminate the EULA by uninstalling and discontinuing your use of the App.
PayNow may terminate support of the App and/or this EULA, or limit or terminate your access to the App at any time for any reason. Sections entitled Reservation of Rights, Term and Termination, Warranty Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability, Indemnification, and Miscellaneous shall survive any termination of this EULA.
