3. Duplicate accounts
SingX may refuse to create duplicate accounts for the same user due to security and client identification requirements. SingX reserves the right to refuse the creation of duplicate accounts or accounts which are linked to bank accounts not belonging to you due to security and client identification requirements. In such cases, SingX reserves the right to close these accounts without notification.
To be eligible for our Services, you must be at least at the minimum age to open an account under the laws of your country of residence with SingX. You further represent and warrant to us that if you are an individual and you open an Account with us that you are not acting on behalf of an undisclosed principal or a third party beneficiary.
Before being able to use the Service we have to perform mandatory customer verification. For that we may require a physical verification and/or ask for photographic evidence of your identity such as a copy of your passport. It is possible to provide this evidence through scanning and uploading such information on the SingX site or through providing such information to our authorised agents.
SingX reserves the right to access various government and private databases so as to verify your information (so called “electronic ID”).
SingX reserves the right to refuse or accept any new user or any transaction at its discretion. If incomplete details are provided or if you do not provide information requested by SingX to complete its customer verification and meet the anti-money laundering requirements as required by relevant authorities, SingX reserves the right to refuse to proceed with the account opening and/or the transaction.
5. Using the Service
You are solely responsible for the accuracy and validity of the information provided by you. SingX will process transactions based on the information provided by you and takes no liability whatsoever for erroneous credits to receivers. If a transaction is returned back you can either:
(i) create a fresh transaction and instruct us to reprocess the transaction or
(ii) request a refund
If you wish to re-process the transaction, please note that SingX reserves the right to re-process the transaction at an exchange rate at which the transaction was originally done, or at current prevailing rates. You will also be liable to pay all additional bank charges and administration charges for reprocessing the transaction. Should you wish to get a refund instead, SingX will make a refund net off any SingX fees and third party charges and Foreign Exchange adjustments incurred in processing these transactions.
You should be aware that, each transaction you create has a specified validity based on the time you created this transaction on the SingX platform. The period of time for which the transaction is valid may change from time to time at our sole discretion, and will be confirmed to you at the time of completing the transaction on the SingX platform.
It is solely your responsibility to ensure that the funds reach the local bank account specified by us before the validity of the transaction expires. If the funds reach us after the validity of the transaction expires, then the transfer will fail and we will need to refund your funds. Charges of up to 1% of the funds returned or HKD 10 (whichever is higher) will be levied for such refunds.
From time to time, we will identify on the Website the currencies for which the Service is available. Available currencies are subject to change at our sole discretion.
You should note that while it is our obligation to ensure that funds arrive at the Receiver’s bank account or payment account within the stated timelines, we do not control the time it takes for the Receiver’s bank or payment provider to credit and make available funds to the Receiver.
If you have created multiple transactions which are valid, we may at our discretion, choose any of those transactions to match against a specific bank transfer made by you into our account.
You should further note that the stated timelines for delivery to the Receiver Accounts, are subject to all necessary security and customer identification checks being conducted in line with our security and identification guidelines. If further investigation or the collection of additional information from you is necessary (either by SingX, or LROs, or the Receiver Bank), we will let you know, and this may result in a delay or cancellation of the transaction. If required by a regulator, we may withhold your funds in any transaction. If a transaction is cancelled, then refunds will be processed net of any charges levied by the LRO or the Receiver Bank.
On June 1st 2020, SingX launched cash pay-outs for Philippines. This means that when sending money to Philippines, you have the choice of sending the credit either to a bank account, or have your receiver collect it in cash from one of the pick-up locations mentioned while creating a transaction.
All cash payments are subject to (i) receivers showing documentary evidence of their identity (ii) providing all details about the money transfer as required by the pay-out partner such as sender’s name and/or receiver’s name, country of origin of remittance, receive amount and/or transaction reference number/PIN code sent to the receiver via SMS and (iii) any other conditions or requirements applicable at the Pay-out Partner location. While these requirements will be provided to you on a best effort basis, it is your receiver’s responsibility to check and fulfil all the requirements of the pay-out partner. Cash money transfers shall be paid to the person that Pay-out partners deem entitled to receive the money after verification of identity often through examination of identification documents. It is your responsibility and your receiver’s responsibility to ensure that you do not divulge the PIN or other details to anyone. It is also your responsibility to ensure that your receiver does not send this PIN to anyone else, and understands the risks of doing so, especially via insecure electronic communication. Neither SingX nor its Pay-out Partners shall be liable for money being picked up by a person other than the intended beneficiary.
Your receiver will need to pick up the cash within 28 business days. After this the transaction will be reversed and we will refund the money to you after deducting relevant charges once we recover the money from our pay-out partner.
6. Exchange Rates
SingX makes reasonable efforts to undertake transactions at exchange rates aligned to the mid-market rate. SingX relies on aggregated third party information sources and does not guarantee that the rates match any particular benchmark source at any given time. SIngX reserves the right at its sole discretion to change or display a static exchange rate from time to time.
We reserve the right at our sole discretion to refuse a transaction (including but not limited to: restricting the creation of a new transaction as well as cancelling a transaction already in process). For transactions refused by us, we will notify you as promptly as we reasonably can, provide a reason where it is possible to, and arrange for a refund where applicable. More specifically, the exchange rate may change between the time of posting a transaction and when we receive your money. If the rate changes by more than 1% (or as may be determined by us from time to time), we reserve the right to refuse the transaction and refund the money to your Sender Account.
7. Transaction Limits
The minimum and maximum transaction limits for transactions may vary depending on the market and we reserve the right to change these limits from time to time.
8. Bank Transfers
All HK Dollar payments must originate from your Hong Kong bank account. You must be either the main account holder or the joint account holder of the bank account from which you send money to us. Transfers from accounts that do not belong to you (including those of your spouse or family members) are strictly prohibited. You are responsible for all charges, including your bank charges, in transferring the funds to us.
9. Refused Transactions
SingX may refuse to proceed with the transaction if we cannot match the name registered with SingX with the name on your bank account from which you send the money. In this case you may be liable for an administration charge (which will be disclosed to you and will be proportionate to the additional administrative effort created or exchange rate loss), and will be deducted from your monies provided for the transaction.
10. Cancellation of Transactions
You may cancel your transaction any time before sending the money to our bank account. You will not be able to cancel the transaction once we have begun processing your transaction.
11. Your Obligations
You are responsible for ensuring the payment details you provide are accurate. Once payment instructions have been executed by SingX, transactions cannot be reversed and SingX will not be liable in any way for any loss you suffer as a result of a transaction being carried out in accordance with your instructions.
In the unlikely event that you notice an error in either the payment sent or received as a result of using the Services, then you should immediately notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You agree not to use the Services for any unlawful activity and SingX reserves the right to investigate any suspicious activity or in response to any complaints or reported violations. When investigating any such activity, SingX reserves the right to report suspected unlawful activity to any appropriate person or body and to provide them with any relevant information, including personal data.
SingX charges a fee on every transaction depending on the country you are sending money from/ to. Fees relating to the transaction are clearly displayed on the transaction page before you confirm a transaction.
Administration charges may be incurred when our receiving bank refuses your transaction due to incorrect payment details, their regulatory requirements or any other valid reason. Any administrative charges from receiving banks will be deducted from your payment amount.
Similarly, you will bear administration charges for refunds if the transaction has failed due to any failure of relevant money laundering or know your client regulations or if the transaction has failed because the validity of our foreign exchange quote had expired by the time funds were sighted.
