  1. Introduction
    1. By using or subscribing to PayU’s Call2Assist or Call2Monitor service (the “Service”), you agree that you have read, understand and are bound by:
      1. these ‘Merchant Service Terms – Call2Assist or Call2Monitor Service (“Service Terms”);
      2. the ‘Merchant Service Terms – General’ (“General Terms”); and
      3. the provisions of the hardcopy or electronic application form relevant to the Service (“Application Form”).
    2. Your use of the Service indicates your acceptance of these Service Terms, as read with the General Terms and the Application Form which will together constitute a legal agreement (the “Agreement”) between you and PayU.
    3. Unless the context clearly indicates the contrary, any term defined in the General Terms when used herein, shall bear the same meaning as defined in the General Terms.  In this regard note that, because the Service enables you to receive and/or make payments electronically, you are a ‘Merchant’ for purposes of this Agreement.  To the extent that there is any inconsistency between any provision of the General Terms and these Service Terms, then these Service Terms shall override the General Terms to the extent of the inconsistency.
    4. You may only subscribe for the Service if you are a South African resident, as contemplated by the Income Tax Act of 1962.
  2. Duration

    This Agreement commences with effect from the date of activation of the Service by PayU which date shall not be earlier than the requested commencement date set out in your Application Form and shall endure until either of us terminates it in accordance with the General Terms (the “Commencement Date”).

  3. The Services
    1. The Service enables you, as the seller of products and/or services, to receive payments from your customers or payers (“Customers”) in respect of your transactions with them through the payment methods selected in the Application Form and processed through your (or your nominated) call centre. 
    2. You will be able to view and/or obtain records of your transactions and telephone calls (once in call mode) on the Call2Assist and Call2Monitor portal.
    3. There are two Service choices available to you when subscribing for this Service: the PayU Call2Assist and PayU Call2Monitor (both options are described in paragraphs 3.3 and 3.4 below).
    4. Call2Assist
      1. With Call2Assist, your call centre agent will remain on the telephone call to assist your Customer throughout the payment process, prompting your Customer to enter their credit card details using the keyboard of their telephone (landline or mobile device).  The call centre agent will securely capture and transmit your Customer’s credit card details through our secure Payment Card Industry (“PCI”) DSS Level 1 environment.
      2. Using Call2Assist, your call centre agent will assist your Customer in making the payment and manage the full progress of the payment process, in real time, on the Call2Assist PayU web application. Your call centre agent will not be exposed to any of your Customer’s sensitive card data and will not hear any DTMF (Dual Tone - Multi Frequency on telephone systems) tones when your Customer is making the payment.
    5. Call2Monitor
      1. With Call2Monitor, your call centre agent will transfer your Customer to PayU’s secure cloud based interactive voice responses (“IVR”) to process the payment, whereby a Customer follows a pre-recorded voice prompt throughout the payment process. Using Call2Monitor, your call centre agent will monitor the full payment process relayed through our PCI DSS Level 1 secure environment, directly to your call centre agent’s computer screen.
      2. Upon receipt of payment, your Customer is transferred back to your call centre agent. The payments are transmitted in real time, providing your call centre agents with live confirmation from the bank.
