Services

In short
  • Inqud’s services include virtual currency processing services, exchanges between virtual and fiat currencies and operations with virtual currency wallets.
  • The transactions within the Service are subject to fees.
  • Virtual currency transactions are nonrefundable.

Inqud’s services provided to users via the Service involve:

To provide the Service you authorise us to receive fiat and virtual currencies, temporary hold, exchange, and disburse them, as well as deduct the applicable fees and other costs on your behalf, and to take all actions that we find necessary or desirable to provide our services to you and to comply with any applicable law and these Terms.

We collect fiat and virtual currencies to your Account exclusively for you and on your behalf. You remain the owner of fiat and virtual currencies you manage through your Account.

Supported currencies

The list of then-currently supported fiat and virtual currencies is available on the Website and in the “Balances” section of your Account.

Exchange rate

We may utilise the spot exchange rate of the given trading pair that may vary and does not coincide with the rate on other exchanges, conversion services and market data providers. The exchange rate fluctuates in accordance with the market, therefore it is only valid for a limited time. The exchange rate for a specific transaction is fixed at the moment you submit the order for exchange.

Wallets

While offering the Service, we allocate you with the digitally secured wallets for virtual currencies allowing you to withdraw, deposit, store and exchange such virtual currencies.

Inqud securely stores all keys, related to your virtual currencies held at the wallets created via the Account.

For withdrawals you must provide a valid wallet address and keep such information current. We will not be liable for any delays or errors caused by third parties, nor any errors in the wallet address and chain information that you have provided to us.

Fees

The transactions conducted between users via Inqud User ID within the Service are not subject to Inqud’s fees. This is only valid when users apply the “transactions within Inqud” feature.

For the transactions with any third parties having no Inqud User ID the fees rate is established for each type of transaction. The fee rate is displayed to you before executing any transaction. 

You can opt for paying the transaction fee in addition to the transaction amount, or by deducting the fee from the transaction amount. All fees are automatically calculated and charged at the completion of any transaction, unless you choose the first option, in which case the fees are payable at the moment of transaction. The fees are nonrefundable.

Payment details

You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of payment details (for example, the credit card, debit card, external wallet address) you provide for transactions within the Service. Inqud shall not be liable for the errors and mistakes made by you in the payment details.

Transaction limits

We can impose daily, monthly, and annual transaction volume limits per Account. If you wish to make a transaction over the limit you may be required to provide additional information and documentation. To make changes to your individual limits, please contact our support team.

Refund policy

Virtual currency transactions made via the Service are final and nonrefundable.

Changes

We may change the list of services, fees and supported virtual currencies from time to time without prior notice. Please visit our Website to stay updated.

Taxes

The users are solely responsible for determining, collecting, withholding and reporting any taxes incurred, or required to be collected, paid, or withheld for any reason in connection with the use of the Service.

Crypto Widget services

In short
  • Inqud offers Merchants crypto payment solutions, enabling them to receive virtual currency payments from End users for goods and services.
  • There are various integration options like Embedded Crypto Widget, Hosted payment page, and API acquiring.
  • By integrating the Crypto Widget, Merchants authorise Inqud to act on their behalf.
  • End users can pay in virtual currency through a unique blockchain address provided in the request during the checkout, with the invoice amount set in virtual currency or in fiat and converted to virtual currency; Merchant's dashboard displays the status of each payment.
  • Inqud is not responsible for Merchants' refund policies or trade in goods and services.

Inqud offers to businesses (“Merchants”) crypto payment solutions enabling Merchants to receive payments in virtual currencies from their users (“End users”) in exchange for Merchant’s goods and services.

The Crypto Widget services for Merchants encompass the following options available upon registering the business Account:

Enables Merchant to integrate the Crypto Widget as a part of its website’s checkout page.

Merchants can use the redirect version of the Crypto Widget, which will not affect the user interface. End users are directed to a secure page provided by Inqud to complete their transactions.

Provides Merchants with a tailored integration for personalised checkout.

A feature of the Crypto Widget that facilitates the charging of recurring payments, such as subscriptions to Merchants’ services.

Integration

Owners of the verified business Account can integrate Crypto Widget into their websites by following its technical documentation.

By providing the domain names or integrating Crypto Widget to your website otherwise, you represent and warrant that you are duly authorised to use the websites for the purpose of integrating Crypto Widget and accepting End users’ payments.

Authorisation

By integrating the Crypto Widget, Merchant authorises Inqud to act on its behalf and to take any and all actions that we think are necessary or desirable to provide the Crypto Widget Service and to comply with applicable laws and regulations. 

Invoices and requests

An invoice user interface is displayed to the End user on the checkout screen. An invoice can specify a purchase amount in fiat currency with the End user creating a request for payment in a selected virtual currency. A request can be created with a specified amount, or without for balance top-ups. 

A unique blockchain address is allocated to the End user for each request that shall be valid for a limited period specified at the checkout screen. The exact amount of the virtual currency to be paid is determined when the request with such an address is created and shall be valid for the same period of time.

Checkout statuses

Merchant’s Account dashboard will display the current status of each payment.

An invoice is considered by Inqud completed if it has been fully paid by the End user, the corresponding transaction has reached our required number of block confirmations, and the payment has been credited to Merchant’s wallet in the Account. The completed checkout will have a “Success” status.

Where the discrepancies in the payment amount, debits to the expired wallet address or failures in compliance checks arise, the status of the transaction in the Merchant’s account will be marked as “Failed” or “Conflict”. The Merchant can contact our support team to investigate the situation. The Merchant shall be responsible for settling underpayments, overpayments and orphan payments with End users.

Auto-conversion

Merchants can set up an auto-conversion feature to receive the amount paid by an End user in the equivalent of the chosen supported currency in accordance with the applicable exchange rate.

Recurring payments

When the feature is released, Merchants will be able to enjoy the recurring payments functionality to charge the End users for their fixed or floating subscription plans.

For the purpose of providing the recurring payments service, Merchants authorise us to automatically charge on their behalf the End users’ wallets with the Merchants’ service fees.

End users may connect their web3 non-custodian wallets and thereby authorise Inqud with one of the following powers:

Merchants shall be responsible for setting the sums for charging, changing or cancelling subscriptions, as well as managing the refunds for the End users.

Processing fees

The integration of the Crypto Widget is free of cost.

In respect of the transactions conducted between Merchants and End users, the processing fees rate is established for each business Account individually based on the trading volumes.

Merchant can determine in its sole discretion, whether the processing fees will be payable by Merchant or End users in the settings of its Account.

We charge a processing fee for each transaction processed through your Account. The processing fee is listed for each invoice in the dashboard of Merchant’s Account.

The processing fees are deducted from the Merchant’s Account balances, if the latter is a payer of the fees in accordance with the settings. In cases where the End users are set to be payers of the fee, the amount of the applicable fee is added to the respective transaction amount and displayed at the checkout screen.

We reserve the right to change our processing fee. We will provide not less than 30 days’ advance notice of such a change, and Merchant’s continued use of the Crypto Widget services following the period of advance notice of the fee change constitutes the acceptance of such change.

Refunds

Inqud is not responsible for Merchant’s refund policies, or for verifying that such policies conform to applicable law. The End users shall refer to Merchant to request a refund for the goods or services purchased.

Complaints

Inqud shall not be responsible for the trade in any goods and services, as well as for the End users’ personal data processing by Merchant that shall be subject to the latter’s Terms and Conditions and Privacy Notices.

If we receive a complaint from an End user and it relates to Merchant or the purchased goods/services, we will send it to Merchant for resolution. We reserve the right to terminate Merchants’ Accounts that receive excessive complaints.
