7. FEES, BILLING & PAYMENT PROCESS SERVICES
Processing Fee. When a Client pays a Pro or funds related to a project are otherwise released to a Pro as required by the Contract and applicable payment instructions, the Payment Service credits the Pro's Payment Account and then deducts a Processing Fee that BEYREP earns and Pro agrees to pay BEYREP for creating, hosting, maintaining, and providing the Site Services. Per every transaction, BEYREP charges Pro 2% of the total amount charged to Client by Pro for the services agreed upon in the Contract hereinafter referred to as the ‘Processing Fee‘.
Client and Pro are obligated to use the Site to pay and receive payment for the Services identified through the Site, as detailed in section titled "Non-Circumvention" below.
Non-Circumvention. You acknowledge and agree that a substantial portion of the compensation BEYREP receives for making the Site available to you is the Processing Fee. You further acknowledge and agree that BEYREP only collects this Processing Fee when a Client and a Pro pay and receive payment through the Site. Therefore, in consideration for our making the Site available to you, for 24 months from the time you identify or are identified by any party through the Site (the "Non-Circumvention Period"), you must use the Site as your exclusive method to request, make, and receive all payments for any services directly or indirectly provided to or received from that party or arising out of your relationship with that party (the "BEYREP Relationship").
In addition, you agree not to circumvent the payment methods offered by the Site. By way of illustration and not in limitation of the foregoing, you must not:
- Submit proposals or solicit parties identified through the Site to contact, engage, or pay outside the Site.
- Accept proposals or solicit parties identified through the Site to contact, deliver services, invoice, or receive payment outside the Site.
Invoice or report outside of the Site or payment amount lower than that actually agreed between Client (or prospective Client) and Pro. You agree to notify BEYREP immediately if another person improperly contacts you or suggests making or receiving payments outside of the Site. If you are aware of a breach or potential breach of this non-circumvention policy, please submit a report to BEYREP by sending an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org, which report will be kept confidential to the extent practicable.
Billing. BEYREP enables Pros to issue payment requests and enables Clients via a third party payment service, ("Payment Service") to make payments for services.
General. When a Pro completes a Project for a Client the Pro will complete the electronic invoice form (the "Payment Request") and submit it to BEYREP via the Website. A Pro must complete and submit a Payment Request to BEYREP for each and every project. The Pro will provide BEYREP with a list of items, including, but not limited to, hours worked, payment required and description of project(s), to be included on the Payment Request ("Payment Request Details"). Such Payment Request Details will not be final until and unless such Pro has confirmed the accuracy of the Payment Request Details or waived the right to review the Payment Request Details. If a Pro waives his, her or its right to review the Payment Request Details, all items in the Payment Request Detail will be included as received by BEYREP. www.beyrep.com ENCOURAGES ALL PROS TO REVIEW THE PAYMENT REQUEST DETAILS. BEYREP will submit the Payment Request Details to the Client and the Client shall submit the payment specified in the Payment Request ("Payment") to BEYREP. When a Client makes a Payment through the BEYREP provided Payment Service, BEYREP deducts the appropriate Processing Fee due BEYREP as described on the Website and in this Section and then delivers the remainder less the Payment Processing Fee of the Payment to the Pro.
Payment Request Disputes. If a Client reasonably disputes any Payment Request, the Client will pay all undisputed amounts within the timeframes specified above and the parties will cooperate to verify any disputed amounts. Any Payment Request amounts reasonably disputed by a Client will not be payable to a Pro until such dispute is resolved. BEYREP’s obligation facilitate any Payment (less applicable Processing Fee and Payment Fee) is expressly conditioned upon: (a) BEYREP’s receipt of Payment from the applicable Client and (b) resolution of all outstanding disputes with respect to such Payment Request and/or Payment.
Payment Service. BEYREP uses a third party payment service to facilitate payments made by Registered Users. The Payment Service enables Clients to transfer payment to Pro through BEYREP. BEYREP makes available the Payment Service for ease of payments however BEYREP is not responsible for the third party service. The Payment Service charges a fee separate from BEYREP’s and that fee is charged at the first phase payment. The payment payment process works as follows: Client pays the Pro on a per-project basis. In the Contract ("Phase(s)") will have been agreed to along with corresponding payment obligations. The Pro will invoice the Client at the completion of a Phase. Client will have previously funded the Stripe.com account and upon receiving the Payment Request, review the invoice, and approve a release of the pre-determined payment along the payment process fee and BEYREP fee. The funds will then be released to the Pro. Client will place the next predetermined funds for the upcoming Phase into the account to be held until that Phase is complete. For example, a project totaling $50,000 could be broken down into 5 stages each totaling $10,000. Client would place $10,000, which includes the payment process fee, into the Stripe.com account. Once the first phase has been completed and the Client has been invoiced and verified the work has been done they would release the payment to the Pro. At that point another $10,000 to fund stage 2 of the project would be deposited and held until the work is completed and conditions met and so on until all funds have been deposited, the work has been completed and funds disbursed as agreed to in the Contract. The Payment Service is made available on the BEYREP site via an integrated application however the application is entirely owned and operated by the third party, not BEYREP. To learn more about Stripe, the third party Payment Service process please visit stripe.com.
General. Payment for Pro’s for services will not be released by Payment Service until after the occurrence of a Client’s acceptance of services and the Client has authorized the release. Client acknowledge that such funds will not be returnable upon such funds being transferred. However, in the event that a party requests Dispute Resolution Process BEYREP will notify both parties that the matter will be addressed through the Dispute Resolution Process.
Payment Disputes. If a Client or Pro reasonably disputes the quality or completion of services provided by such Pro, then both Client and Pro agree that BEYREP shall have no payment obligations to any party related to relevant fees and such dispute shall be resolved in accordance with the Dispute Resolution Process as explained in Section 8 of these Terms and in Section 10 of Stripe.com’s Core Service Agreement, Section E, https://stripe.com/us/legal#section_e
Legal Relationship. BEYREP is not Client’s or Pro’s agent with respect to any funds that have been transferred to BEYREP for any assumed payment liabilities. Each Pro must properly discharge and credit Client for all payments made to such Pro in respect of services provided to such Clients.
By using the BEYREP Services, you expressly acknowledge that (a) BEYREP is not acting as a trustee or a fiduciary of Client’s or Pro’s and that the BEYREP Services are provided to Registered Users administratively; (b) BEYREP is not a "financial institution" as defined under the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and BEYREP offers payment services via a third party payment service Stripe.com and is not a banking services.

A Notice to BEYREP should be sent to: 2029 Verdugo Blvd, #168, Montrose, CA 91020. After the Notice is received, you and the BEYREP may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and the BEYREP do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.
Arbitration Rules. Arbitration shall be initiated under the rules in effect on the date of this agreement through the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), an established alternative dispute resolution provider ("ADR Provider") that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with the Terms. The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules ("Arbitration Rules") governing the arbitration are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules. Any hearing will be held in a location within 100 miles of Client’s residence, unless you reside outside of the United States, and unless the parties agree otherwise. If you reside outside of the U.S., the arbitrator shall give the parties reasonable notice of the date, time and place of any oral hearings. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party shall bear its own costs (including attorney’s fees) and disbursements arising out of the arbitration and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the ADR Provider.
Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance based arbitration is elected, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.
Time Limits. If you or BEYREP pursue arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations (i.e., the legal deadline for filing a claim) and within any deadline imposed under the AAA Rules for the pertinent claim.
Authority of Arbitrator. If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and BEYREP, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages, and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the AAA Rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and BEYREP.
Waiver of Jury Trial. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in a court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and the BEYREP in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND BEYREP WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE REGISTERED USER, CLIENT, PRO CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER REGISTERED USER, CLIENT AND/OR PRO.
Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. The Client and Pro agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
Right to Waive. Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Company.
Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or the Company may bring an individual action in small claims court.
Emergency Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
Claims Not Subject to Arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark or trade secrets shall not be subject to this Arbitration Agreement.
Choice of Law & Courts. These Terms and your use of the Service will be governed by the substantive laws of the State of California without reference to its choice or conflicts of law principles. In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within L.A. County, California, for such purpose and shall be governed by the laws of the state of California without regard to principles of conflicts of law.
