If we at Phoonepos Technologies Limited/phoonepos.com believe the details are not correct, current, or complete, we have the right to refuse you access to the site, or any of its resources, and to terminate or suspend your account.
You may only act on your own behalf. Your account can not be used to act as an intermediary or broker for any person or entity.
You may only use your own account to transact at phoonepos.com and a merchant/agent may open multiple accounts in different locations at a time for providing Agency banking services in Africa. Users are responsible for maintaining adequate security and control of any and all IDs, passwords, Tokens, Personal Identification Numbers (PINs), Outward Transaction Numbers (OTN), or any other codes that you use to access phoonepos.com. You are not allowed to sell, borrow, share or otherwise make available your account or any detail necessary to access your account to people or entities other than yourself.
Your account must not contain misleading or fraudulent information, including, but not limited to having a non-personal phone number, creating fake reputation information for your account, faking your country of origin or providing fraudulent identification documents.
We may at any time require you to complete our ID verification process and may also require you to submit additional identification documents to phoonePOS if we deem it necessary. Failing to complete ID verification will be considered a violation of this agreement.
If we determine that you have at any previous point in time violated this agreement or any other agreement that you have entered into with us we will immediately close, suspend or limit your account as per the terms outlined in this agreement.
With a registered account you can create Agency Banking advertisements ("advertisement" or "ad" or "ads") to advertise that you are providing Agency banking services. You may initiate transactions ("trades" or "contacts") by contacting advertisements created by other users or wait for users to initiate trades with you by contacting ads created by yourself.

A company may have several active user accounts at any time, provided they are all company verified and operated by an employee of the company. Each company verified account is personal to the employee operating it.
If the customer and an Agency Banking merchant are in disagreement over a transaction, either party or phoonePOS may initiate a dispute. Disputed transactions are resolved by phoonepos.com support arbitration panel.
When merchants turn unresponsive, we will resolve the dispute to the customer if we are confident the merchant has received valid payment from the customer via a successful transaction. If the customer is unresponsive the merchant may dispute the transaction and we will resolve the dispute in favour of the merchant.
Providing fraudulent information or documents in a dispute or making false claims or otherwise trying to force a certain outcome of a disputed transaction is considered a violation of this agreement. If payment details are provided outside of phoonePOS, the dispute may be resolved without taking the payment details into consideration.
