8. Fees, Charges, Payments

There are fees and other payments payable by you to AbeBooks (either directly or through our external payment service provider) for use of the Web site and services, including for some transactions conducted through the Web site. These fees and payments are set out in the AbeBooks Program Guide and the Fee Schedule.

a. Invoices and Acceptable Payment Methods
Monthly invoices are generated and delivered on the first Friday of each month, and payment of the full account balance is due upon receipt. All booksellers are required to have a Visa or MasterCard on file for fee payments.

b. Late Payments
Any account in arrears is subject to the billing practices described in section 15 of the AbeBooks Bookseller Agreement and may be closed by AbeBooks in its discretion.

c. Direct Debit
Some sellers located in Europe have the ability to pay fees via SEPA Direct Debit from EU bank accounts denominated in Euros. If you pay by direct debit by providing AbeBooks with your bank account information, you authorize:

a: AbeBooks to cause instructions to be sent to your bank to debit your account.

b: Your bank to debit your account in accordance with the instructions.

As a part of your rights, you may be entitled to a refund from your bank under the terms and conditions of your agreement with your bank. A refund must be claimed within 8 weeks starting from the date on which your account was debited.
