6. FEES AND PAYMENT
6.1 Plan Fees.
The use of an Account may be subject to a Fee depending on the Plan chosen by the Client. Upon sign-up for an Account, the Client must select a Plan. Different rates apply to different Plans.
The applicable Fee is charged in advance on monthly or annual payment intervals unless agreed otherwise between parties.
All Fees are non-refundable, i.e. there are no refunds or credits for periods where the Client did not use an activated Account, used it only partially, or deactivated the Account or terminated these Terms during an ongoing payment interval.
If the Client wishes to cancel the current subscription Plan, the Client shall downgrade to the FREE Plan. This must be done directly in the Outvio Platform in the Subscriptions section. The Client shall then remain on the current Plan until the end of the current invoicing period, after which it shall be automatically moved to the FREE Plan.
If, after signing up, the Client elects to upgrade to a more expensive Plan, the unused portion of any prepaid Plan Fees shall be applied towards the Plan Fee of the more expensive Plan.
All Plan Fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies or duties applicable under any applicable law unless stated otherwise. The Client is solely responsible for the payment of such taxes, levies or duties.
6.2 Shipping Fees.
Shipping Fees will be applied to each Shipment sent out by the Client using the Outvio Platform.
The Shipping Fees depend on the Plan chosen by the Client and vary according to the number, size and weight of Delivery Packages in the Shipment. The Client can find the exact Shipping Fees applicable to their Shipments at the Store Settings section of their Outvio account.
The Shipping Fee for a particular shipment is also shown before processing a shipment in the Outvio platform.
Shipping Cost Estimates are calculated based on the information given by the Client regarding the size and weight of the Delivery Packages in the Order. The Shipping Cost Estimates serve solely for the purpose of providing information to the Client regarding the likely cost of the Shipment.
The Final Shipping Cost is calculated after the Shipment has been processed by the Courier based on the actual size and weight of the Delivery Packages as reported by the Courier.
If the size and/or weight of the Delivery Packages reported by the Courier differ from those reported by the Client, the measurements provided by the Courier shall be used to calculate the Final Shipping Cost.
If, for any shipment, the measurements provided by the Courier are higher than those reported by the Client, this Shipping Fee shall be recalculated. If the result is a higher fee, the difference between this recalculated fee and the initial Shipping Fee shall be calculated and billed accordingly to the Client as an adjustment charge.
For every shipment the Client ships using its own Courier contract and shipping rates, a small Shipping Fee (Processing Fee) shall apply for every label resulting from processing the shipment through the Outvio platform. The applicable Processing Fee can be found under the Subscription and Rates section in the Client’s Outvio account.
The reimbursement of any monetary amount from the Supplier to the Client, due to cancellation of any service offered by the Supplier (including but not limited to shipments) will be transferred automatically by Outvio to the Client as available credit in the Outvio platform. If the platform cannot make the reimbursement automatically, it will be granted at the Supplier’s discretion. The reimbursement will always be granted as credit available in Outvio to be used to cover the use of the Outvio platform. Should the Client request this reimbursement to be transferred by bank transfer to the Client’s account, the Supplier will deduct a processing fee of 10 EUR.
6.3 Free Trial.
A new Client may be entitled to a Free Trial unless the Client has applied for the Account as a result of an ongoing marketing campaign organized by the Supplier in co-operation with its partners.
If the parties have not agreed otherwise, the default Plan for the Free Trial shall be the Plan with the highest rate of Plan Fee.
The Client is not required to provide any credit card information during the period of Free Trial unless they are using the Outvio Platform during the Free Trial to make shipments. In this case, a credit card will be required, but will only be charged with the Shipping Costs, no Plan Fees will be charged during a Free Trial.
If the period of the Free Trial has expired, the Account will be automatically downgraded to a free plan or deactivated if no such free plan exists.
In order to prevent downgrading/deactivation or to upgrade/reactivate the Account, the Client is required to select a suitable Plan and pay the Plan Fee. If the Client does not pay the Plan Fee within 2 weeks as of the expiry of the Free Trial, the Supplier has the right to permanently delete the Account, including all the Client Data therein.
In addition to the current collection of Plans, the Supplier may offer special discounts and motivation schemes (for example finder’s fees, etc.).
6.4 Payment of Fees
Payment for shipments and for any applicable fees related to shipments will be made by credit card, every day the client has shipments, or by direct debit in regular payments, 4 times within the Invoicing Period.
Based on the Final Shipping Costs a Shipping Fees Invoice will be issued to the Client for the Shipments sent out using the Outvio Platform during the Payment Period. This invoice includes Shipping Fees and Label Fees.
The Shipping Fees Invoice amount will be deducted from the credit card provided by the Client or via direct debit at the end of each Payment Period.
The Client implicitly agrees to be charged by the Supplier for any fees generated by the Client using the Outvio platform, in the bank account given when activating the Direct Debit payment and/or in the Credit Card provided as payment methods. These fees include Shipping Fees derived from the actual shipping of orders, any fees charged by the Couriers to the Supplier in relation with shipments processed by the Client, Label Fees for those shipments shipped using couriers for which the Client has a direct contract with the Courier and monthly Subscription Fees, for the usage of the Outvio platform under those plans that require the payment of a monthly fee.
In case of dispute, the Client, by no means is entitled to cancel any of the fore-mentioned payments, forgo nor delay a payment, neither before, nor during, nor after the dispute.
Moreover, in case of a payment dispute due to:
- a Shipping Fee charged by a Courier to the Supplier for a Service offered to the Client, or
- in case a Courier denies a compensation derived from a claim filed by the Client, or
- any other claim filed against a Courier by the Client,
the Client is obliged to respect and comply with the Courier’s resolution and proposed compensation. The Client cannot cancel nor claim any of those payments, stemming from that claim or service, to the Supplier.
In order to secure an uninterrupted service to Clients, the Supplier may book an amount on the Client’s default payment method (credit card or bank account in case of Direct Debit) based on the Shipping Fees applicable and the estimated Shipments volume of the Client for the next Payment Period. The Client will be notified of such bookings beforehand.
Once the Shipping Fees Invoice amount has been deducted from the credit card or received via direct debit, the booked amount will either be released or used to secure the Shipments for the next Payment Period.
An Invoice shall be generated by the Supplier listing all the charges applied to the Client’s account during the invoicing period. The Invoicing Period by default shall be 1 natural month. The Invoice shall include the Shipping Costs of all shipments made during that period plus any additional charges derived from shipments’ adjustments, minus any credit granted to the Client in the period.
6.5 Insurance Fee
The Client may take on additional coverage for its shipments by selecting the insure shipment option before shipping the order. This service is offered exclusively by the Couriers and their terms and conditions apply. The Supplier acts as an intermediary between the Courier and the Client. In order to know the conditions of such insurance service, and in case of any insurance claims, the Client shall contact the Courier directly. The Supplier may help the Client establishing the contact, but ultimately the Courier terms and conditions apply, and the Client is responsible of performing all due steps in order to get the corresponding compensation, in case a claim arises.
6.6 Credit Card Authorization
The Supplier may seek pre-authorization of the Client’s credit card account prior to your purchase of Outvio Services in order to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover the fees.
The Client authorizes the credit card account to pay any amounts described herein and authorizes the Supplier to charge all sums described in these Terms to the credit card account.
The Client agrees to provide the Supplier updated information regarding the credit card account upon the Supplier’s request and any time the information earlier provided is no longer valid.
6.7 Late Payments
Upon delay with any payments, the Supplier may require the Client to pay interest on the delay (penalty for late payment) for the period as of the time the payment obligation falls due until conforming performance is rendered. The interest rate of penalty for late payment due is 0.1% per day.
6.8 Failed Payments
The Client shall be deemed to pay additional fees for failed payments. The Client needs to note that failed payment fees for failed direct debit bank payments due to the Client’s fault (i.e. not sufficient funds in the bank) can be €10 or more. The Supplier shall pass on these fees to the Client.
After a failed payment, the Supplier may automatically prevent the Client from using the Outvio platform until the outstanding payment has been settled. After settling any outstanding payments, the Supplier shall activate the Client’s Account as soon as possible (typically immediately). However, the Supplier shall be not responsible of any damages (including, but not limited to monetary damages) caused to the Client for being unable to use Outvio during the period the Account is deactivated for shipping until it is again activated.
6.9 Handling of reimbursements and compensation fees
The Client is the sole responsible to initiate, followup and close any claims against the Couriers.
The Supplier will levy a reimbursement fee of 10%, with a minimum of 5 EUR, of the final reimbursed amount, for all reimbursements and compensations agreed by the Couriers, for services rendered by the Couriers to the Client in behalf of the Supplier, including but not limited to: compensation for delays in service, compensation for shipments damaged or lost, reimbursement of overcharges, etc. For example, if the compensation amount agreed by the Courier is 200 EUR, Outvio will transfer the Client a total of 190 EUR. Likewise, if the compensation amount agreed by the Courier is 20 EUR, Outvio will transfer the Client a total of 15 EUR.

These fees, as specified in point 6.4, may include additional services provided by the Courier which are required to deliver, return, dispose or destroy the shipment.
