Please read these Terms and Conditions (the "Agreement") carefully before making any payment towards the purchase of a franchise or otherwise. This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions governing franchise related payment transactions. By making a payment, you (the prospective or current "Franchisee") acknowledge and agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
The Franchise Payment Portal (the “Portal”) is a technology-based platform designed to facilitate various direct payments from the Franchisee as part of the CouriersPlease franchise model.
By using the Portal, the Franchisee confirms that they have carefully read, understood, and agreed to this Agreement.
The Franchisee agrees to pay a non-refundable deposit of $1,000.00 plus GST (the "Deposit") to CouriersPlease (the "Franchisor") towards the purchase of the franchise.
The Deposit shall be made in the form of Credit Card payment through the Portal.
The Deposit amount will be credited towards the total required capital investment purchase amount (“Purchase”) of the franchise.
Upon receipt of the Deposit, the Franchisor agrees to reserve the chosen franchise for the Franchisee for a period of 8 weeks from the date of Deposit (the "Reservation Period").
The Reservation Period grants the Franchisee the ability to secure the franchise subject to the completion of the Purchase payment as well as all onboarding requirements as determined by CouriersPlease.
The Franchisor has the right to approve or decline any deposit made by a Franchisee, in its absolute discretion resultantly terminating any reservation of a franchise at any time prior to Franchise Agreement commencement.
A Franchisee’s Deposit may only be refunded in the event a Franchise Agreement is not offered, for any reason, by the Franchisor.
By paying a franchise Deposit, the Prospective Franchisee agrees to make Purchase payment in full.
A Purchase payment is a payment towards the total capital investment price of the franchise, excluding the Deposit.
The Franchisee agrees to pay the required Purchase amount to CouriersPlease towards securing the franchise.
The Deposit shall be made in the form of Credit Card or Bank EFT payments through the Portal.
A Franchisee’s Purchase may only be refunded in the event the respective cooling off period is executed within the required timeframes as outlined in the Australian Franchising Code of Conduct.
Failure to complete the Purchase in full within the specified due dates may result in the termination of this Agreement at the sole discretion of the Franchisor.
The Franchisee will not be offered a contract until the Purchase is confirmed as paid in full.
The Franchisee acknowledges and agrees that in addition to the Deposit and Purchase amounts, they may use the Portal to make other payments as required.
The Prospective Franchisee acknowledges that the securing of a franchise is subject to signing a separate Franchise Agreement between the Franchisee and the Franchisor.
The terms and conditions of the Franchise Agreement shall supersede any conflicting provisions in this Agreement.
The Franchisee agrees to comply with all obligations and responsibilities set forth in the Franchise Agreement once executed.
