  • 4.1If We publish your Content on the Service and it is downloaded by users you may be paid for it in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. We will not pay you directly and payment will be made via PayPal's MassPay service. The details and process for payment are set out below. 4.2 We may charge other users to download your Content or we may from time to time allow users to download your Content for free. If we charge users to download your Content, then each time a user downloads your Content from the Service we will credit your user account balance with 3p if the clip is charged at 35p (or 1p if the clip is charged at 10p). We may from time to time allow users to download your Content for free in order to promote the Service or for other promotional reasons, in which case you will either not be paid at all for such use of your Content or, in Our absolute discretion, We may credit your user account with a fixed amount in return for such use (and you will be informed via your registered email address of the amount that will be credited to your user account).
  • 4.3 There are several steps required to enable You to be paid, which are set out below.

    Firstly, You will need a user account. When we publish your Content on the Service, We will set up an account for you using your MSISDN (which we capture when you send us your Content) and the email address you give us. You will then need to validate Your account by accessing the Service from your mobile device. Secondly, you need to set up an account with PayPal. If you do not set up an account with PayPal you will not be paid for your Content. If your balance reaches or exceeds £10 we will send your email address to PayPal, who will contact you by email to set up an account. PayPal may charge you an administration fee to set up your account. You are responsible for paying that fee. In addition, PayPal may impose additional terms and conditions on you as the holder of an account with PayPal. You are responsible for complying with those terms and conditions and meeting any associated costs. We are not responsible if you are unable, for whatever reason, to set up an account with PayPal.

  • 4.4 Each account will have a user balance of zero when it is first set-up which will increase as people download Your Content. Each time your account balance reaches or exceeds £10, We will transfer the full amount of your balance and your email address across to PayPal who will arrange payment, provided you have set up an account with them. Once You have been paid, Your user account balance will then reset to zero and begin to accrue again.
  • 4.5 As set out in more detail above, your balance will only start accruing and you will only be paid for your Content if the following requirements are met: You have validated your user account

    • You have entered a valid email address. If you don't supply us with a valid email address, or if your email address changes and you don't tell us, then PayPal will not be able to contact you and you will not be paid.
    • You have set up a valid PayPal account
    • Your user balance will only accrue as a result of a download if We receive revenue from that download
    • You will only be paid if your user account balance reaches or exceeds £10
    • You comply with these terms and conditions.
  • 4.6 Payment terms are 90 days in arrears from the end of the month to which the payment relates. For example, if your balance reaches £10 during December, you would expect to receive notification from PayPal of payment being available any time after 31st March. Your balance will then reset to zero and will begin to accrue again.
  • 4.7 Your right to payment is subject to you complying with these terms and conditions. We may at any time, at Our sole discretion, withhold payment to you if We suspect that you are artificially inflating the number of downloads of your Content, if you have paid for the Service using a stolen, invalid or expired credit or debit card or if We are required to refund a credit or debit card provider in respect of your payment for the Services, or if We suspect you are otherwise interfering in any way with the O2 Network. If your account is in dispute we reserve the right to withhold payment until the dispute is resolved. Where monies are owed by you to Us, We reserve the right to offset such monies against the payments due to you in respect of the Service.
  • 4.8 You are responsible for making sure that you pay any income or other taxes you may incur as a result of using the Service.
