2. OUR SERVICES
2.1. AYA® Online Money Transfer Service offers money transfer services nationally and internationally. You must be at least 18 years old to use the AYA® Online Money Transfer Service and you must have your habitual residence with you. Each money transfer is given an individual transaction number, the Money Transfer Control Number or "MTCN".
2.2. By completing and consenting to the information required to make a money transfer and by accepting these Terms and Conditions, the Sender instructs AOMT to execute a specific money transfer. Every individual money order constitutes a separate agreement between AOMT and the Sender which is limited to the execution of a specific money transfer. At no moment in time is a framework agreement concluded between yourself and us which obligates us to execute individual and subsequent money transfers. The Sender shall inform the Receiver of the money transfer accordingly.
2.3. Subject to statutory or regulatory requirements, we undertake to make funds available for collection by the Receiver at the latest at the end of such Business Day following the Business Day on which the funds were received (“Day of Receipt”). The moment of receipt is such moment when we receive the funds to be transferred and the fees associated with said transfer. For money transfers instructed in paper form the period extends by a further Business Day.
2.4. For money transferred (i) to a state outside the local country or (ii) subject to a multiple currency conversion between the local currency and a non-local currency at a local currency exchange price or (iii) which is not to be paid out in different currencies, the funds are made available for collection by the Receiver at the latest at the end of the fourth Business Day after the Day of Receipt.
2.5. For regular money transfers the funds are normally available for collection in minutes, subject to the business hours of the respective agent location. For some countries, the service may be delayed or other restrictions may apply. If you require further information, please contact the telephone number stated in Item 1.2 of these Terms and Conditions.
2.6. The AYA® Online Money Transfer Service provides various options to receive funds including cash at an agent location, direct to a bank account or to a mobile phone, where available. Where funds are to be paid out in cash the Receiver must provide adequate proof of his or her identity in addition to all transaction details required by AOMT pertaining to the money transfer, in particular the name of the Sender, the country from which the money was sent, the name of the Receiver, the approximate amount of money transferred and any and all other conditions and requirements that are mandatory at the AOMT agent location for the funds to be paid out, such as the MTCN (Money Transfer Control Number). The payment of funds to be collected will be made to the Receiver that AOMT or its agent deems entitled to receiving the money following verification of the identification documents. Payments may even be effected if the transaction information provided by the Receiver contains minor mistakes. Neither AOMT nor its agents compare the address details of the Receiver. At certain payment locations the Receiver may be asked to provide proof of his or her identity or answer a test question or both in order to receive the funds. Test questions do not constitute an additional security feature and cannot be used to time or delay the payment of a money transfer and are prohibited in certain countries. For transactions to a bank account or to a mobile phone AOMT will transfer the funds to the account information provided by the Sender. In the event of an inconsistency between the holder of the account number (including mobile phone numbers for mobile phone accounts) and the name of the intended Receiver, the transfer will be credited to the account number provided by the Sender.
2.7. Applicable law prohibits money transmitters from doing business with certain individuals or countries; AOMT is required to screen all Transactions against lists of names provided by the governments of the countries and territories in which we do business, including the US Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and the European Union. If a potential match is identified, AOMT researches the Transaction to determine if the name matched is indeed the individual on the relevant list. For this purpose, AOMT is entitled to request from the Sender or the designated Receiver additional details and proof of identification which may cause the Transaction to be delayed. This is a legal requirement for all Transactions processed by AOMT (including transfers that originate and terminate outside of the US).
2.8. Transfer Fees: Written information explaining how AOMT charges the Sender for making a money transfer is available on the transactional AOMT Website and is shown to the Sender prior to completion of the payment order. The specific transfer fees for a money transaction are indicated in the “Send Money Online” field at https://aya-omt.co.uk. Simply select your destination country, enter the amount to be transferred and click on “Calculate”. The Sender shall bear all fees due to complete the money transfer unless applicable law in the destination country requires otherwise. In certain cases money transfer payments may be subject to local taxes and service charges. The Receiver may incur additional fees for receiving the Sender’s funds through an account-based money transfer, a mobile telephone or to a bank account. Money transfers should be sent to a local (Receiver’s) currency account, otherwise the receiving institution (where the Receiver has his or her account) may convert the funds at its own exchange rate or may even reject the money transfer. The Receiver’s agreement with his or her mobile phone service provider, mWallet account provider or other account provider governs the account and determines their rights, obligations, applicable fees, funds availability and account limitations. In the event of an inconsistency between the holder of the account number (including mobile phone numbers for mobile phone accounts) and the name of the intended Receiver, the transfer will be credited to the account number provided by the Sender. AOMT may charge additional fees associated with the use of an account for sending or receiving a money transfer. AOMT does not assume any liability pertaining to costs which the Sender or any account holder incur in conjunction with the exchange rate used for the conversion into non-local currencies or for actions or omissions on behalf of the destination or interim financial services provider.
2.9. Foreign exchange
a. Money transfer payments will normally be made in the currency of the destination country (in some countries payment is available only in an alternative currency). All currency is converted at AOMT’s then current rate of exchange. AOMT calculates its rate of exchange based on commercially available interbank rates plus a margin. Most exchange rates are adjusted several times daily in line with the relevant closing rates of global financial markets. The exchange rate for a money transfer is indicated to you at after selecting the destination country in the “Send Money Online” field, entering the amount that you intend to transfer and clicking on “Calculate”.
b. The currency will be converted at the time of the transfer and the Receiver will receive the foreign currency amount shown during the transfer process. However, in some countries local regulations require money transfers to be converted only when they are paid out. If the Sender is sending the funds to one of these countries, the exchange rate noted above is only an estimate, and the actual exchange rate will be determined at the time of payment. AOMT agents may offer Receivers the choice to receive funds in a currency different from the one the Sender selected. In such instances, AOMT (or its agents, the mobile phone provider, or account provider) may collect additional money when they convert the Sender’s funds into the currency selected by the Receiver. If the Sender chooses a payment currency different from the national currency of the destination country, the payment currency chosen may not be available at all payment locations in that country, or may not be available in small enough denominations to pay all of the money transfer. In such cases, the paying agent may pay all or part of the Sender’s money transfer in national currency. AOMT’s exchange rate may be less favorable than some publicly reported commercial exchange rates used in transactions between banks or other financial institutions. Any difference between the currency exchange rate offered to customers and the currency exchange rate received by AOMT will be kept by AOMT (and, in some instances, its agents, mobile phone provider, or account provider) in addition to the transfer fees. Additional information about exchange rates for specific destination countries can be obtained by calling the toll-free telephone number listed below or from Our Website.
2.10. SMS – AOMT may offer free SMS notification in some countries to indicate (to the Sender) that the transferred funds have been collected by the Receiver or that funds are available for collection (to the Receiver). Charges applied by the telephone service provider are the exclusive responsibility of the Sender or Receiver. AOMT is not responsible for any charges associated with SMS messages. If permitted by applicable law, the SMS will be sent to the Sender’s and/or the Receiver’s mobile number provided at the time of transaction. AOMT will send SMS messages to a gateway for forwarding, however forwarding is the responsibility of third parties, and cannot be guaranteed. AOMT is not responsible for technical malfunctions that occur outside of its proprietary systems.
