Welcome to the website of About-Payments.com B.V. (hereafter “About-Payments,” “we,” or “us”). This page explains the terms by which you can use our online services and software (collectively the “Service”) as provided by About-Payments.

About The Company
The About-Payments.com website is fully owned and operated by About-Payments.com B.V., registered as “Besloten Vennootschap” (Limited Company) at the Dutch Chamber of Commerce with registration number 55845959. Our registered address is Middenburcht 136, 3452 MT, Vleuten, The Netherlands.
About-Payments’ aim is to create transparency in the online payments industry by educating merchants and helping them to find, compare and select the payment methods and payment service providers that serve their needs.
About the Service
About-Payments provides a Service for merchants and online businesses to find payment processing companies (hereafter “payment providers or providers”) for their business. Our Service allows them to create a business profile, which allows our Service and payment experts to find matching providers. The Service strictly allows businesses to request and receive proposals from matched and selected payment providers. These payment providers allow businesses to accept electronic payments either remotely (internet and/or via mail, phone, fax, paper) and/or by means of a device (e.g. Point-of-Sale payment terminal).
The Service does not entail in any way advice or giving recommendations on which provider(s) to choose. Our Service is fully independent and in no way influenced or compromised by agreements we hold with the providers. Our Service is free for our Users. About-Payments receives a commission from the providers participating in the Service and only when they are selected by a User, and the User enters into an agreement with the provider(s).
The user is responsible for the accuracy of the information provided to About-Payments. The user must understand that our matching software uses the information provided by the user to find the appropriate payment provider(s).
The user must understand that About-Payments is not a party in case the user decides to engage with one or more providers, resulting from comparison through our Service. In those instances, the user enters into an agreement with the applicable provider(s) and is responsible for reading and agreeing to the provider’s terms and conditions.
Users, provided with a user name, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, must treat such information as confidential, and must not disclose it to any third party.
