You acknowledge that Qerko allows you to pay for services or goods provided to a partner through the Qerko App, where Qerko mediates and arranges for the collection of payments with such partner's limited authority. A payment made in this way will be considered the same as a payment made by you directly to that partner. Payments will include applicable taxes as required by law, and possibly partner tips if you so choose. For tip calculation rules, please see below.
Payments made by you are final and non-refundable unless otherwise specified by Qerko. You have the right to request lower amounts from the Partner in payment for the services or goods you have received from the Partner at the time you receive the relevant goods or services. Qerko will respond accordingly to any Partner's request to change the amount of payment for specific services or goods.You further acknowledge that Qerko may charge a fee for each individual payment to facilitate and collect the payment for the Partner.All payments are due immediately and the relevant payment will be mediated by Qerko, through the Qerko application and online payment gateways GP WEBPAY, Stripe, ČSOB, Adyen, Confirmo and PayU. The administrator of the payment card data, where this data is stored and processed, is GP WEBPAY, Stripe, ČSOB, Confirmo and PayU. If this data is misused, Qerko bears no responsibility for the misuse of payment card data. Qerko will make a recurring payment from the payment card that you have entered into the online payment gateway via the Qerko application as the payment card from which you wish to pay for the services and goods provided. Qerko may issue a debit request to the Payment Gateway in the amount you instruct through the Qerko App. Qerko will then email you a receipt on behalf of the partner. If the application does not confirm a successful payment with the partner, it is not considered that you have paid the partner for the services and goods provided and you must choose an alternative payment method of the partner that the partner accepts.
Qerko may from time to time provide certain users with promotional offers and discounts that may result in differences in the amounts charged for the same or similar services or goods obtained through the use of the Services, and you hereby agree that such promotional offers and discounts, unless also available to you, will have no effect on your use of the Services or the charges applicable to you.
Qerko offers the functionality of ordering / reordering on an open account. A user who creates an order on an open account is also obliged to pay for such an order. In the event that such an order is not paid and the user causes damage to the partner, the Qerko company has the option to cancel such an order, which the user created through the Qerko application and did not pay, using the payment method added by the user to the Qerko application. Qerko reserves the right to enable the ordering / reordering service on an open account only for certain users. After you pay for services received or goods obtained from a partner, you will have the opportunity to rate your experience and leave comments about that partner. Qerko is not a payment service provider.
You understand and agree that although you have the option to increase the payment as a tip for the partner, you are under no obligation to do so. Any special rewards are voluntary. There are two ways to tip through the Qerko app, either as a fixed amount or as a percentage. If you choose to tip as a percentage, please note that Qerko will always round up. That is, if the total amount paid by you is, for example, CZK 233 and you choose a 10% tip, the amount of the tip you give will be CZK 24 (and not CZK 23.3).We round up in EUR, HUF or USD.
