5.1 - Initiating a Payment Order

LEMON WAY provides a payment service allowing Account Holders with a Payment Account to instruct LEMON WAY to execute a transfer provided that the Provision in the Account is greater than the total amount of the transfer (including fees). In case of insufficient Provision, the Payment Order will be automatically refused.

The available Provision is the net balance of the Payment Account excluding the blocked Provision and the pending Transactions. The amount of the blocked Provision is determined by LEMON WAY in order to cover possible reversals resulting from a disputed Payment Order. Such a dispute may occur within 13 months of the transaction being debited to the Account.

The Payment Order shall contain the following information:

the amount in euros ;

the full name of the Beneficiary;

the Beneficiary's account number opened in the books of the Beneficiary's PSP.

The Account Holder acknowledges that if the currency of the Payment Account differs from the currency of the Payee's account to which the funds are to be transferred, the Payee's PSP will charge a currency exchange fee. It is the responsibility of the Partner and the Payee's PSP to inform the Payee prior to any acquisition of a Transfer Order of the exchange rate charged, the fees and the execution time. This information shall be transmitted to the Payee by the Partner.

LEMON WAY cannot be held responsible if the bank details transmitted for the transfer requests are incorrect or not updated.

The Payment Order will be deemed irrevocable as of the entry of the card data as described in 4.1.

5.3 - Ceiling amounts and applicable limits

The Cardholder is subject to the following standard limits:

If the Cardholder is an Individual, he/she is informed that a limit of 2,500 euros per calendar year and 250 euros per expenditure may be applied. In order to use the Payment Account beyond these amounts, LEMON WAY will ask the Cardholder for additional identification documents.

If the Account Holder is a legal entity, LEMON WAY will systematically request all required identification documents before opening the Payment Account.

Any Payment Transaction that may result in the cumulative monthly payment amount exceeding the applicable limits will be automatically rejected by LEMON WAY.

LEMON WAY may activate other limits or block Orders at any time in case of risk of fraud.

LEMON WAY reserves the right to reverse a Payment Transaction, if the credit or debit card transaction used to credit the Payment Account in order to carry out this transaction is rejected or cancelled by the card issuer.

6.2 - Statements

All Payment Transactions are included in a statement drawn up in real time for each Payment Account. The Cardholder may consult the statement on the Partner site.

The Cardholder shall have access to the Payment Account statements showing all Payment Transactions debited and credited to this account.

The consultation period is maintained for two (2) years, plus the current year. LEMON WAY will keep the records and documents of the Payment Transactions carried out on an electronic archiving support, for the applicable regulatory periods.


The Master Agreement shall come into force upon acceptance hereof by the Holder for an indefinite term.

The Holder has a period of fourteen (14) calendar days to cancel the Master Agreement without charge, if it meets the conditions of Article D 341-1 of the French Monetary and Financial Code for legal entities or if it is an individual. This period shall run from the day on which the Master Agreement is concluded, i.e. the day on which the Holder has accepted these General Terms and Conditions. During this cancellation period, performance of the Framework Agreement may only begin at the express request of the Holder. The Titleholder expressly acknowledges and accepts that any payment instruction sent to LEMON WAY before the cancellation period has expired constitutes an express request by the Titleholder to execute the Master Agreement. The Cardholder will therefore not be entitled to cancel a payment instruction given and confirmed during the cancellation period.

This right of cancellation may be exercised by the Holder without penalty and without giving any reason.

The Cardholder must notify LEMON WAY of his/her decision to cancel by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt to the registered office of LEMON WAY before the expiry of the fourteen day period.

All information recorded in LEMON WAY's computer databases relating in particular to Orders and Payment Transactions have, until proven otherwise, the same evidential value as a written document signed on paper, both as regards their content and as regards the date and time at which they were made and/or received. These unalterable, secure and reliable traces are engraved and stored in LEMON WAY's computer systems.

LEMON WAY's documents reproducing this information, as well as copies or reproductions of documents produced by LEMON WAY have the same probative force as the original, until proven otherwise.


The temporary and immediate suspension of a Payment Account can be pronounced by LEMON WAY for any reason at LEMON WAY's discretion and in particular :

if the Account Holder has not complied with the provisions of the Master Agreement,

if the Titleholder has provided LEMON WAY with inaccurate, outdated or incomplete identification data,

in the event of a risk of fraud, money laundering or terrorist financing or a risk that could affect the security of the Payment Account

in the event of a significantly increased risk of the Cardholder being unable to fulfil his payment obligation

in the event of receipt by LEMON WAY of a large number of refunds, cancellation of Orders or challenges for unauthorised Orders.

This decision is motivated and notified to the Holder by any means. As the suspension of the Payment Account is intended to protect the Account Holder, it may not under any circumstances give rise to the payment of damages to the Account Holder.

Reactivation of the Payment Account will be at the discretion of LEMON WAY.

Depending on the seriousness of the breach of the Master Agreement and in particular if the Beneficiary has sold illicit Products, LEMON WAY reserves the right to terminate the Master Agreement in accordance with the provisions of Article 19.


The Cardholder may terminate the Framework Agreement by right, which will result in the closure of his/her Payment Account, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt, subject to a notice period of one month. The Cardholder must maintain sufficient funds to ensure the proper completion of the Payment Transactions in progress for the time required to settle them and to pay the fees due by him/her.

LEMON WAY may terminate the Framework Agreement by right, which will result in the closure of the Payment Account, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt, giving two months' notice.

In the event of a serious breach by one Party, the Framework Agreement may be terminated with immediate effect by simple written notification by the other Party. Serious breaches by the Licensee are understood to include: communication of false information; carrying out an illegal activity, contrary to good morals, money laundering or financing of terrorism; threats against employees of LEMON WAY or the Partner site; failure to pay; non-compliance with an obligation of the Holder under this Agreement; termination of relations between the Holder and the Partner site; overindebtedness or for legal entities appointment of an ad hoc trustee, judicial administrator, opening of a recovery or liquidation procedure Serious breaches by LEMON WAY are understood to mean: communication of false information; failure to comply with an obligation under this Agreement; appointment of an ad hoc trustee, a court-appointed administrator, or the opening of reorganization or liquidation proceedings.

In the event of a change in the applicable regulations and their interpretation by the relevant regulatory authority affecting the ability of LEMON WAY or its agents to execute Payment Transactions, the Master Agreement will be automatically terminated. The Account Holder will no longer be able to send Payment Orders from the effective date of termination. The Account may be maintained for a period of 15 months to cover any subsequent disputes and claims. Payment Transactions initiated before the effective date of termination will not be affected by the termination request and must be executed under the terms of the Master Agreement.

Termination of the Master Agreement shall result in the permanent closure of the Payment Account. The closure of a Payment Account shall not give rise to any compensation, regardless of any damage caused by the closure of this Payment Account. The Account Holder whose Account has been closed by LEMON WAY is not authorized, unless expressly agreed by LEMON WAY, to open another Payment Account. Any Payment Account opened in violation of this provision may be closed immediately by LEMON WAY, without notice.

The Provision on the Payment Account to be closed will be transferred to the Account Holder according to his/her instructions, subject to any outstanding Payment Transactions and any future outstanding payments, bank rejections or stop payments. If a successor is appointed by Lemon Way, the Cardholder may be offered to close his or her Payment Account and transfer the Provision to a new payment account opened in the books of the institution appointed as successor.

LEMON WAY reserves the right to seek legal redress for any loss it may have suffered as a result of the breach of the Master Agreement. The closure of the Payment Account may give rise to charges within the limits of Article L. 314-13 of the Monetary and Financial Code.


Any proposed amendment to the Master Agreement shall be communicated to the Account holder on paper or on another durable medium no later than two months before the proposed date of application for its entry into force.

In the absence of a written objection by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt sent to LEMON WAY by the Cardholder before the expiry of this two-month period, the latter is deemed to have accepted these modifications. In case of refusal of the proposed modification, the Titleholder may terminate the Master Agreement by written request without charge, before the proposed effective date of the modification. This request does not affect all debits (fees, dues, payments) for which the Cardholder remains liable.


In the event that administrative formalities are necessary for the execution of these General Terms and Conditions, LEMON WAY and the Titleholder will assist each other in the completion of these formalities.

If any of the non-substantial stipulations of the General Terms and Conditions are null and void with regard to a rule of law in force, they will be deemed to be unwritten, but will not lead to the nullity of these General Terms and Conditions.

The fact that one of the Parties does not take advantage of a breach by the other Party of any of the obligations referred to herein shall not be interpreted for the future as a cancellation of the obligation in question.

In case of difficulty of interpretation between any of the titles and any of the clauses of the General Conditions, the titles will not be taken into account.


The present General Conditions are governed by French law.

Unless otherwise stipulated, any dispute relating to their execution, interpretation or validity will be brought before the competent courts and tribunals, and by default in Paris.
