PAYMENT METHODS
When an Event Sponsor elects to use the Website for the collection of event registration fees from Event Participants, payment processing occurs directly by ZapEvent as follows: (i) ZapEvent will collect all event registration fees on behalf of the Event Sponsor from the Event Participants and will deduct all applicable service charges from the event registration fees passed along to the Event Sponsor, the process of which is more fully described at http://www.zapevent.com/price.aspx, (ii) ZapEvent will mail all payments to the Event Sponsor (event registration fees minus applicable service charges) at the address that the Event Sponsor accurately provides on the Website; and (iii) ZapEvent will submit payment to the Event Sponsor on the 1st and 15th of each month, or the first business day thereafter if on a weekend or holiday, for the event to which the registration fees correspond, provided that ZapEvent reserves the right to withhold funds at any time as ZapEvent determines to be necessary for the processing and settlement of all returns, disputed charges, customer complaints, allegations of fraud and other discrepancies. ZapEvent reconciles all funds collected through 7 days prior to the 1st and 15th or each month. Each reconcile is two weeks worth of funds offset by 7 days prior to the reconcile day. All sales, fees, charges, and funds are payable in U.S. Dollars, or other foreign currencies accepted by ZapEvent.

Refunds. It is the responsibility of the Event Sponsor to communicate its refund policy to the Event Participants and to issue refunds on the behalf of Event Participants. An Event Sponsor shall ensure their refund policy is consistent with the Terms of Use. If an Event Participant desires to request a refund, the Event Participant must request the refund from the Event Sponsor. All communications or disputes regarding refunds are between the Event Sponsor and the Event Participant and ZapEvent will not be responsible or liable for refunds or the lack thereof issued in the course of the use of the service provided by ZapEvent.
During registration, ZapEvent users must agree to ZapEvent’s Terms of Use and also that refunds will be handled by the Event Sponsors only. We do understand there may arise instances where a credit card refund may be necessary and we will continue to handle those on a case by case basis. When a credit card refund is requested by the Event Sponsor, the request must be done via the Refund/Remove tool on the Event Participant’s order details page. ZapEvent is only able to process direct credit card refunds for transactions that have happened within the past 7 calendar days and the amount refunded by ZapEvent will not include processing fees. Only in situations of accidental duplicate transactions will the processing fees also be refunded to the participant. If the transaction took place more than 7 days ago, the Event Sponsor will need to refund the participant directly.

Credit Card Chargebacks. Any credit card chargebacks initiated by an Event Participant for any reason with respect to an event shall be charged back to the Event Sponsor of such event. ZapEvent shall either (1) deduct these costs from such Event Sponsor’s outstanding balance, whether for that particular event or for any other event that such Event Sponsor lists through the services provided under the Website; or (2) send an invoice to such Event Sponsor for such costs if no balance exists. If payment for such invoice is not received by ZapEvent within thirty (30) days, ZapEvent reserves the right, at ZapEvent’s sole discretion, to terminate such Event Sponsor’s registration for the services provided under the Website and to cancel all other events listed by such Event Sponsor as provided herein. All communications and disputes regarding chargebacks are between the Event Sponsor and Event Participant and ZapEvent will not be responsible or liable in any way for chargebacks issued in the course of the use of the service provided under the Website.

Confirmation. Upon receipt of a credit card authorization from each Event Participant, ZapEvent will issue a unique confirmation number. Event Sponsors agree to unconditionally accept, honor, and fulfill all ticketing commitments that have been confirmed by ZapEvent through the Website, and it is the Event Sponsor’s responsibility to verify the Event Participant’s event status, confirmation number and/or any event restrictions prior to the subject event.

Taxes; Withholding. If you are using the Website as an Event Sponsor, you are responsible for (and will indemnify and hold ZapEvent harmless against) all taxes associated with your sale of tickets through the Website (excepting taxes based on ZapEvent’s income). ZapEvent reserves the right to withhold the payment of any amounts owed to you hereunder if ZapEvent suspects or determines that such amounts have been generated in (1) a fraudulent manner, (2) violation of this Terms of Service, or (3) violation of any applicable laws or regulations (foreign or domestic). Such withholding may be temporary or permanent (as determined by ZapEvent in its sole discretion).
