The Card: The Card is a Visa Prepaid Card that can be used at any merchant that accepts Visa, subject to the limitations set out in this Agreement on the manner of use, including those in the Information Disclosure Summary above.

To activate your physical Card, follow the instructions provided on or with the Card. Whether or not the Card has an activation sticker adhered to the Card face, you must sign the back of the Card and select a PIN.
Ownership and Use of the Cards: You represent and warrant to us and agree that: (a) you will not permit any Card User to use a Card unless: (i) the Card User is of the age of majority in the jurisdiction which they reside; and (ii) the Card User is a Canadian citizen or residing in Canada; (b) the information you provide about Card Users is or will be truthful, accurate, current, and complete, and we may rely upon it; (c) you received a copy of this Agreement and agree to be bound by and to comply with its terms; (d) you provided a copy of the Float Visa Prepaid Card – Card User Terms and Conditions to all Card Users and each Card User has agreed to be bound by its terms; and (e) you accept each Card for use in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, or use by Card Users in accordance with the requirements of this Agreement and the Float Visa Prepaid Card – Card User Terms and Conditions.
We will issue physical or virtual Cards that you may provide to a Card User to use. Card User may use the virtual Card upon receipt. Subject to the limitations in the chart entitled “Limits” in the Information Disclosure Summary above, each Card can be used to pay the full Transaction Amount from merchants who accepts Visa, including applicable taxes. Each Card is, and will remain, our property. The Card is not a credit card, charge card, or debit card and its usage will not enhance nor improve your credit rating or the credit rating of a Card User. No interest, dividends or other earnings or returns will be paid on the Business Account, a Card Account, a Card, or a Balance. The Business Account, a Card Account, a Card and Balance is not a deposit account and neither you nor any Card User may write cheques on the outstanding Balance. We shall have no obligation to any Card User or to you relating to any contract or arrangement between you and a Card User. We are not parties to your agreements with any Card User or any agreements between you, or a Card User, and any third-party. We are not bound by the terms of any such agreements, nor are we obligated to act to fulfil any other person’s obligations under such agreement, even if we are made aware of the existence and terms of such agreement.
When the Card is used to make a purchase, the Transaction Amount will be deducted from the available Settlement Funds loaded as Balance on the Card or, otherwise, associated with the Float Card Program. Use of the virtual card shall have the same legal and binding effect on you, as if a physical Card were used in person, verified by an authorized signature or personal identification code confirming authority to charge the Card for the full Transaction Amount. You agree that, if a merchant requires that you sign a sales draft, we are not required to verify your signature on any sales draft prepared in connection with a transaction on the Card and we may authorize and process a transaction even if the signature on the sales draft is different than the signature on the Card.
Some merchants (including, but not limited to, restaurants, hotels, or car rental companies) may pre-authorize the Transaction Amount for the purchase amount plus up to 20% (or more) above the purchase amount to ensure that there are sufficient funds available on the Card to cover any tips or incidental expenses. In such cases, your transaction will be declined if the Balance will not cover the Transaction Amount plus the additional pre-authorization percentage.
A pre-authorization will place a hold on an amount of your available Card funds until the merchant sends us the final payment amount of your purchase. Once the final payment amount is received, the pre-authorization amount on hold in excess of that final payment amount will be released.
During the hold period, you will not have access to the pre-authorized amount.
You will be solely and completely responsible for the possession, use and control of each Card. You must disable or delete a Card immediately upon request by us. The Cards are issued to you only. If you allow another person, including a Card User or Business Administrator, to use a Card, you agree, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law that you will be liable for all transactions arising from use of a Card.
We are not liable to you or a Card User for declining authorization for any particular transaction, regardless of our reason, including but not limited to if there are insufficient Settlement Funds or Balance to pay for the transaction. If for any reason a Card transaction is processed when there are insufficient funds loaded on the Card or other Settlement Funds, you agree to make immediate payment to us to cover the Transaction Amount.
We may, in our sole discretion, cancel or suspend any features or services of the Card at any time, with or without cause, upon notice to you or as otherwise required by Applicable Law.
You represent and agree that the Cards are issued to you for a business purpose only.
You agree that we may treat every instruction we receive as being initiated by or from you or persons authorized by you to provide instructions, including your Business Administrator or Card User, and as a valid and authorized instruction by you to process and pay for Card transactions from funds loaded on the Card or otherwise from the Settlement Funds unless we have been notified of a risk of fraud or unauthorized use and had opportunity to deactivate the Card.
Information About Balance: It is your responsibility to ensure that there is a sufficient Balance on the Card to cover transactions plus any pre-authorized amounts. To obtain the current Balance amount, or the transaction history, visit the Website. The Balance will reflect all transactions that have been posted to our system. You are not allowed to exceed the Balance available on the Card for any transaction.
If you attempt to use the Card when there is insufficient Balance available to cover the full Transaction Amount, the transaction in most instances will be declined. However, if due to a systems malfunction or for any reason whatsoever, a transaction occurs despite insufficient Balance on the Card, creating a negative amount, you agree to reimburse us, upon request, for the amount of the Transaction Amount in excess of the Balance.
Transactions Made in Foreign Currencies: We may convert any transactions made in a foreign currency to Canadian dollars using the Visa Conversion Rate in effect on the day the transaction is posted to your Card Account. The currency conversion rate in effect on the processing date may differ from the rate in effect on the transaction date or the posting date. The Visa Conversion Rate may not be the same as the rate that existed on the date the transaction was made.
However, if a foreign currency transaction is refunded to the Card, the Visa Conversion Rate used to convert your refund to Canadian dollars for the Card is the applicable rate that we pay to Visa on the date of the refund. Additionally, the rate that we pay to Visa may not be the same as the rate that existed on the date the transaction was refunded. For these reasons, the amount that is credited to the Card for a refund of a foreign currency transaction will, in most cases, be less than the amount that was originally charged to the Card for that transaction.
Protection Against Unauthorized Use: If a Card is lost, stolen or subject to unauthorized use, you must notify us immediately and provide us with the Card number and answer an identifying question. If you lose or misdirect the Card, someone might be able to use the Balance on the Card. You are responsible and must pay for all Card transactions that are completed before you notify us by calling 1-833-944-3175. Those transactions will be binding on and payable by you as if made by you or with your lawful authorization. We will have a customer service representative or automated voice response service available seven (7) days a week, twenty-four (24) hours a day that will allow immediate cancellation of the Card upon your request. As a condition to any reimbursements made or to be made, if you are entitled to receive one, and to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, you agree to cooperate and assist with any attempts by us to investigate and recover from unauthorized users and to assist in prosecution of recovery claims.
Notification and Changes to the Agreement: You acknowledge that from time to time we may amend this Agreement. Use of a Card subsequent to such amendments shall constitute acceptance of the amended Agreement.
You are responsible for (i) informing us of any change in your mailing or email address, by contacting customer service at 1-833-944-3175 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and (ii) for regularly checking the Website for notifications of amendments to the Agreement. Notice will be deemed to be received by you five (5) days after mailing, the next business day after sending an electronic mail or other electronic message or posting notice of amendment on the Website. You are solely responsible for notifying Card Users of any changes to this Agreement which may affect the Card User’s rights or obligations with respect to a Card and agree that you shall make reasonable and timely efforts to do so.
