Your use of the Pay by Invoice as a payment method is subject to these terms and conditions (the "PBI Terms"). Pay by Invoice may be offered by Amazon Europe Core SARL, Amazon Services Europe Sarl, Amazon EU Sarl, or another Amazon entity as indicated on your invoice. Additional policies also apply to your use of Pay by Invoice (the "PBI Policy"). We may update these PBI Terms and PBI Policies by posting updates on our websites. Your use of Pay by Invoice after the effective date of any such updates constitutes your acceptance of the revised terms. When you choose to pay for an order using Pay by Invoice you agree to be bound by the PBI Terms and the PBI Policies. The version of these PBI Terms in English is the definitive legal version. Translations may be available for your ease of reference only.
The payment term for any order placed using Pay by Invoice is in accordance with the standard payment term set out in the PBI Policy, or within such longer time-period authorized by Amazon and shown on your invoices and in your Business Account (please refer to Manage your Invoices, Billing and Delivery). If you fail to make payment to Amazon when due, we may charge you interest at the rate of 1.5% of the amount of the outstanding payment per month, except as otherwise required by law as set out in the PBI Policy. If you made a payment accidentally to Amazon's bank account, or you are closing your account and it has a positive account balance, you may request a return of a balance held by Amazon by contacting Customer Service. Disbursement to you will not exceed your outstanding balance. Amazon may offset any amounts otherwise owed to Amazon by you from such amounts.
Amazon may, in its sole discretion, apply a credit limit to your use of Pay by Invoice. Your credit limit may be increased, reduced, suspended, or revoked by Amazon at any time and for any reason. If Amazon authorizes you to allocate your approved credit limit among related entities and/or designated divisions or groups ("PBI Subaccounts"), you remain liable for the payment obligations of such PBI Subaccounts.
Amazon will perform credit checks on your business, including by using third parties, as part of determining your initial and ongoing eligibility for the Pay by Invoice payment method. Amazon and such third parties may use any information available in the public domain, validate the data provided by you, and exchange data with other Amazon affiliates and with credit agencies. You will promptly, upon our reasonable request, provide Amazon with any additional information, and you authorize us to request and obtain such information from government authorities or from any public domain, as permitted by law. You represent and warrant, and covenant that any information provided or made available by you or your affiliates to Amazon or its affiliates is accurate and complete, and you will promptly update such information as necessary to ensure it at all times remains accurate and complete.
If you (i) fail to make payment when due; (ii) fail to comply with these PBI Terms; (iii) become insolvent, enter into receivership, make an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or declare bankruptcy or similar proceedings are commenced by or against you; or (iv) experience an event that has a material adverse effect on your business, operations, or financial condition, we may, without prior notice to you and any requirement of such notice being waived by you and without prejudice to any other legal remedies that may be available to us (u) suspend or cancel orders; (v) suspend or revoke your credit; (w) offset any amounts that are otherwise payable by us to you; (x) demand immediate payment of all other outstanding invoices; and/or (y) terminate your Business Account.
Returns and disputes will be handled in accordance with the Amazon Business return and A-to-z Guarantee claim polices. Amazon will issue refunds in the form of a credit to your invoice account and email a credit memo to the email address configured on the 'Pay by Invoice' settings page. To apply this credit to any existing unpaid invoices, email the invoice number, credit memo number, and the amount that needs to be applied to firstname.lastname@example.org. Until such time as you have made a claim under our A-z Guarantee, you may not withhold payment for any item purchased under Pay by Invoice for any reason.
We may initiate collections against any past due invoices. We may engage a third-party agency to manage this process on behalf of Amazon and you may be liable for any fees or charges that a third-party may assess for collections.
You may not dispute an invoice due to any errors or omissions made by users in your organization while placing the order (e.g. entering incorrect purchase order number).
If any provision of these PBI Terms is deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these PBI Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, expressly excluding the application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Both parties agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the district courts of the city of Luxembourg.
These PBI Terms incorporate the PBI Policies by reference and, together with the Amazon Business Terms and Conditions, represent the entire agreement between the Parties with respect to this subject matter and supersede any previous or contemporaneous oral or written agreements regarding such subject matter. Amazon will not be bound by, and specifically object to, any term, condition, or other provision that is different from or in addition to the provisions of these PBI Terms (whether or not it would materially alter the PBI Terms). In the event that any term, condition, or other provision (a) submitted by you in any order, receipt, acceptance, confirmation, correspondence or other document, (b) related to any online registration, purchase order, supplier form, or other questionnaire, or (c) related to any invoicing process that you submit or require us to complete is inconsistent with the PBI Terms, the PBI Terms will prevail.
