3. Third-Party Services

Superphonica has engaged third-party service providers to perform many of the services related to payment processing, including card processing, currency exchange, identity verification, fraud analysis and regulatory compliance.

Superphonica partners with top tier licensed payment processors to facilitate card payments and other payments and the disbursement of funds to sellers. The provider and processing time for your payment will vary based on the country in which you’re located. If there are insufficient funds in your bank account when our provider processes the payment for your purchase, Seller reserves the right to contact you directly and to seek payment or withhold shipment until funds are available.

By using a third-party service, you may also be subject to an agreement with the third-party. For example, PayPal is a third-party service provided by PayPal Holdings, Inc. and is subject to the PayPal User Agreement.

If Superphonica receives notice that your Stores content or activity violates a third party’s service agreement, we may at our sole discretion take action against your account to comply with their policies. Such actions may include canceling a transaction, disabling listings from your store, suspending your selling privileges, or removing certain payment methods.

PayPal

Superphonica supports PayPal’s Adaptive Payments platform:

PayPal’s Adaptive Payments allow sellers to receive funds from PayPal purchases directly into their payment account, without the need to manage a separate PayPal account. This means that if a buyer pays with PayPal, the funds from the order will be credited to a seller’s payment account along with the rest of the orders. The standard Superphonica Selling Fee applies to orders that go through adaptive PayPal and applicable PayPal fees.

Escrow.com

Superphonica supports Escrow.com’s Platform API:

While traditional escrow service is quite difficult and must be obtained through banks and lawyers, Escrow.com provides online escrow services at affordable rates right on Superphonica’s site. While the payment is ‘In Escrow’ the transaction can be safely carried out without risk of losing money or merchandise due to fraud. An escrow is a financial arrangement where a third party holds and regulates payment of the funds required for two parties involved in a given transaction. Escrows are very useful in the case of a transaction where a large amount money is involved and a certain number of obligations need to be fulfilled before a payment is released like in the case of selling high-end audio components. The buyer might want confirmation the product delivered meets the ad description before making a full payment, and the seller doesn’t want to ship expensive gear without any assurance that he or she will receive payment.
