“Pre-authorized payment (PAP)” may also be referred to as “pre-authorized donation (PAD)” or “pre-authorized withdrawal (PAW)”.
In giving monthly by pre-authorized payment, you agree that:
I(We) acknowledge that this Authorization is provided for the benefit of the Payee and (Processing Institution) and is provided in consideration of (Processing Institution) agreeing to process debits against my account in accordance with the Rules of the Canadian Payments Association.
I(We) warrant and guarantee that all persons whose signatures are required to sign on this account have signed the agreement (donation form).
I(We) hereby authorize the Jesus Network to draw on the account indicated on the donation form or provided specimen cheque marked “VOID” for the purpose designated under Gift Information on the donation form.
This authorization may be cancelled at any time upon notice by the Payor. I(We) acknowledge that, in order to revoke this authorization, I(We) must provide notice of revocation to the Jesus Network.
I(We) acknowledge that provision and delivery of this authorization to the Jesus Network constitutes delivery by myself (ourselves) to (Processing Institution). Any delivery of this authorization to you constitutes delivery by myself (ourselves).
The Payor and Payee agree to waive the pre-notification requirement set out in Section 11 of Appendix II of rule H1 of the Canadian Payments Association.
I(We) undertake to inform the Jesus Network, in writing, of any change in the account information provided in this authorization prior to the next due date of the PAD.
The account that the Jesus Network is authorized to draw upon is indicated in the accompanying authorization. A specimen cheque for this account has been marked “VOID” and attached hereto I(We) acknowledge that (Processing Institution) is not required to verify that a PAD has been issued in accordance with the particulars of the Payor’s Authorization including, but not limited to, the amount.
I(We) acknowledge that (Processing Institution) is not required to verify that any purpose of payment for which the PAD was issued has been fulfilled by the Jesus Network as a condition to honouring a PAD issued or caused to be issued by the Jesus Network on my(our) account.
Revocation of this authorization does not terminate any contract for goods or services that exists between myself(ourselves) and the Jesus Network. The Payor’s Authorization applies only to the method of payment and does not otherwise have any bearing on the contract for goods or services exchanged.
A PAD may be disputed by a Payor under the following conditions:
(1) the PAD was not drawn in accordance with the Payor’s Authorization; or
(2) the authorization was revoked; or
(3) pre-notification was not received.
The Payor, in order to be reimbursed, acknowledges that a declaration to the effect that either (1), (2) or (3) took place, must be completed and presented to the branch of the Processing Institution holding the Payor’s account up to and including 90 calendar days in the case of a personal/ household PAD (or up to and including 10 business days in the case of a business PAD), after the date on which the PAD in dispute was posted to the Payor’s account.
The Payor acknowledges that a claim on the basis that the Payor’s Authorization was revoked, or any other reason, is a matter to be resolved solely between the Payee and the Payor when disputing any PAD after (90 calendar days in the case of a personal/ household PAD or 10 business days in the case of a business PAD).
