Invoice timeout information is clearly displayed on each B OODLE MARKET PLACE invoice. While we guarantee the exchange rate if the Purchaser pays within such time window, you agree that you assume the volatility risk of your local currency or the applicable cryptocurrency. For instance, if you ask us to collect $150, and the Purchaser sends the cryptocurrency equivalent within the time window, we guarantee you will receive exactly $150, minus our fee if applicable. We do not, however, guarantee the value of the U.S. dollar.
For any payments that are made using the bitcoin blockchain, an invoice is considered complete by us after the payment has six (6) block confirmations.

These Network Costs are included in the invoice total and are paid by the Purchaser, the other member. The Network Costs are not returned when a refund is executed. Purchaser, the other member, has the discretion to decide to pay or not pay an invoice after it has been created.
Cryptocurrency transactions may require a miner fee. These miner fees are automatically created by the Purchaser’s, the other members wallet and sent to the miner. These miner fees are not OODLE MARKET PLACE fees. The miner fees paid to the Network are not returned when a refund is executed.
We reserve the right to change our fee structure and pricing. Your continued use of the Services after we notify you of any changes in our fees constitutes your acceptance of such change.
8.3 Methods of Settlement
We will verify the Purchaser’s, other members payments over the cryptocurrency peer-to-peer payment network and post the balance to your membership accounting ledger, according to your preference settings. The debits and credits to your accounting ledger are funds temporarily held by OODLE MARKET PLACE until settlement to your bank account can take place. You can receive a settlement in supported fiats or any of the supported cryptocurrencies, or in a mixture of both. You assume volatility risks of the currency in which you choose to settle with the other member.
8.3.1 Settlements in Local Currencies
Direct deposit to a bank account in a local currency may be available to members located in certain countries that approve such payments to their banks. If you wish to receive direct deposit settlements, you must provide us with valid bank account information and keep such information current.

Underpayments occur when the Purchaser, other member, sends less than the full amount required to mark the invoice as fully paid. Since the invoice is not fully paid or complete, the funds do not get applied to the members ledger. OODLE MARKET PLACE will send an email to the Purchaser allowing the Purchaser to request a refund for the partial payment. The Purchaser, other member, can also request a refund of the partial payment directly from the invoice. OODLE MARKET PLACE will adjust the invoice price to the amount paid, instead of refunding the underpayment.
Overpayments occur when an invoice receives excess funds. In cases such as this, this invoice passes through the state of being paid in full and is marked as an overpayment. Once the invoice is status is “complete”, the funds to mark the invoice as fully paid are applied to the member ledger. However, the excess funds are not applied. OODLE MARKET PLACE will send an email to the Purchaser, other member, allowing the Purchaser to request a refund for the excess funds. The Purchaser also can request a refund of the excess funds directly from the invoice.
8.4.3 Orphan Payment
Orphan Payments occur when a transaction is received outside the time window referenced in Section 8.1 (Invoice Generation and Exchange Rate Guarantee). Any payments sent to the expired address will show up in OODLE MARKET PLACE OODLE Pay system as an orphan payment.

Members should not pay any OODLE MARKET PLACE invoice or send un-supported cryptocurrencies to a OODLE Pay address. If a member transmits a un-supported cryptocurrencies, the member will lose any perceived value in the un-supported cryptocurrencies.

OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC assumes absolutely no responsibility whatsoever in respect to un-supported cryptocurrencies.

If a payment exception is made and OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC receives cryptocurrency, and OODLE MARKET PLACE is unable to contact you or the Purchaser, other member, and has no record of you or the Purchaser’s, other membrs use of the Services for several years, applicable law may require OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC to report these funds as unclaimed property to the applicable jurisdiction. If this occurs, OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC will try to locate you or the Purchaser, other member, using the notification information shown in our records, but if OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC is unable to locate you or the Purchaser, other member, it may be required to deliver any such funds to the applicable state or jurisdiction as unclaimed property.

9.1 Refund Procedures
OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC can facilitate cryptocurrency refunds on your behalf. You can decide to issue a partial refund or refund the full amount of the initial purchase. You can also decide whether to issue the refund denominated in supported fiat currency or in a supported cryptocurrency. If you do not have enough funds in your OODLE MARKET PLACE account to cover the refund, OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC will require you to deposit a cryptocurrency or fiat to OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC to cover the refund to the Purchaser, other member. Any required currency conversion during the refund process will be calculated at a spot rate determined at the time by OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC.
9.1.2 Requirement of Invoice ID or Tag to Ensure Refund of Payment Exceptions for XRP
Because all XRP invoices share the same address, you must ensure that payment transactions include either an invoice ID or return the same value sent in the original tag by OODLE MARKET PLACE so we can identify your payment. At least one of the required invoice ID or the original value in the tag fields will be included along with the invoice. If a purchaser is using a payment-protocol enabled wallet, the invoice ID will automatically be included in any XRP transaction. If an XRP transaction is sent to our account without either the invoice ID tag or the tag information, there is no guarantee that we can determine who it came from and therefore the OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC will not be able to provide a refund.
9.2 Disclosure of Your Refund Policy
OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC is not responsible for member refund policies. We do suggest members have a clear refund policy for their sales to other members (including, if applicable, “no refunds are allowed as all sales are final”). For certain industries, a refund policy may not be applicable (e.g. where a service is provided). If refunds are permitted, we recommend you refund the amount of the initial purchase in the currency in which the item was priced.
9.3 Member Complaints
Members filing complaints with OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC about a purchase will be forwarded to you for resolution. OODLE MARKET PLACE FZC reserves the right to terminate member accounts which receive excessive complaints from other members.
