Accelpay Terms & Conditions

This website is operated by Accelpay, a company formed under the laws of the state of New York. Throughout the site, the terms “Accelpay”, “we”, “us” and “our” refer to Accelpay. Accelpay offers this website, including all information, tools and services available from this site to you, the user, conditioned upon your acceptance of all terms, conditions, policies and notices stated here.

1. Agency and Retail Relationship

1.1 Product Purchase and Agency

When a customer purchases a product using our checkout page, they are not purchasing that product from Accelpay. The customer is appointing Accelpay as the agent to place an order via a third-party licensed retailer.  

1.2 Relationship to Licensed Third Party Retailers

Accelpay is a marketing company that acts as the agent for alcohol suppliers/brands and the retailer. When an Alcohol Supplier's (the Brand) customer seeks to purchase a product from a website using Accelpay’s checkout functionality, they are appointing Accelpay to act as their agent to place the order with a licensed third party retailer. Each licensed retailer may only sell and deliver to states which that retailer is legally permitted to deliver to. If the retailer accepts the order, they will deliver the product to the address that is provided by Accelpay. 

1.3 Licensed Third Party Retailer Tax Obligations

The Brand’s customers are required to pay the state and local sales tax associated with the sale and delivery in the state with which the product(s) will be delivered. Tax money will be retained by Accelpay and remitted to the appropriate taxing authority in the event that the state in which the retailer resides is different from the state in which the product(s) are being delivered. In the event that the product(s) are delivered in the state with which the retailer resides all tax monies will be sent to the retailer to remit to their local tax authority.

2. Product Information

Accelpay will make an effort to display the Brand’s product as accurately as possible and within the Brand’s style guidelines.

For custom integrations on websites or other platforms, the brand and retailer both agree to outline their specifications as clearly as possible to be agreed to by Accelpay representatives. 

2.2 Product Availability and Returns

Certain products or services may not be available depending on geographic region, jurisdictions or the retail partners’ inventory.
