By registering for a Business Account and using the services offered on the Due Platform, you agree to authorise Due to work with third party providers in order to provide you with our services. These third parties may include payment service providers, electronic money institutions, cryptocurrency service providers, market makers and banking partners.

The Due Platform
The Due Platform is a set of services and infrastructure that enables payments leveraging blockchain networks and cryptocurrencies as its transaction rails. The Due Platform is built with security and self-sovereignty in mind. At no point does Due hold custody of cryptocurrencies belonging to the Businesses or their customers (“End-Users”). At the heart of Due Platform is the Core Protocol, consisting of:
- Smart contracts that are used to route the payments and validate cryptographic signatures, as well as to ensure the payments are correctly charged and settled.
- Relay Service that allows for a seamless UX for both the Business and the End-User, simplifying all aspects of making and accepting payments on-chain.
Due Platform also includes the Business Account dashboard, Checkout services, Payment links, API tools, Payout, Pay-in and Settlement services.
Our technology services allow you to integrate, through the use of API, a payment processing method in your online shop or other platform that enables your customers (End-Users) to pay in exchange for goods or services that you sell.
You can use our services in order to accept payments from your End-Users in cryptocurrencies as well as fiat currency.
- End-Users can choose to pay in cryptocurrency; or
- They can choose to pay in fiat currency
Depending on the amount per transaction and the type or method of payment, End-Users may also be required to submit information for identity verification purposes and/or in order to enable us or our third-party partners to comply with applicable legal or regulatory requirements.
End-Users may select to pay in a range of supported cryptocurrencies or in their local fiat currency. We will work with our group company, Due Payments EOOD, and/or third-party partners to process these payments and exchange the cryptocurrency or fiat currency into the cryptocurrency in which you have selected to receive settlement. The smart contract will route the payment to the cryptoasset wallet linked to your Business Account and we will not custody the cryptocurrencies on your behalf.
Your Business Account also allows you to create payment links in order to receive payments for goods and services. You may generate a payment link through your Business Account dashboard. Payment links are a simple ‘no-code’ way to create a checkout session / page that an End-User will be able to access in order to pay you for your services or products.
Regardless of the payment method used by your End-Users, settlement will always be in the form of cryptocurrencies using the designated cryptoasset wallet address linked to your Business Account. You can select the cryptocurrency in which you wish to receive settlement through your dashboard. In order to change the recipient wallet address or settlement cryptocurrency, you will need to sign using the private key in your cryptoasset wallet.
When an End-User makes a payment in one of the supported cryptocurrencies, the smart contract will route an on-chain payment to the designated cryptoasset wallet address linked to your Business Account.
Depending on the choice of cryptocurrency used for payment by the End-User and your choice of cryptocurrency in which you wish to receive settlement, we may also work with our group company, Due Payments EOOD, and/or our third-party partners to effect an exchange.
When an End-User selects to make payment in fiat currency depending on their location, we will work with our group company, Due Payments EOOD, and/or our third-party partners to process the payment and purchase the corresponding amount of cryptocurrencies that will be settled into the non-custodial cryptoasset wallet linked to your Business Account, in the cryptocurrency in which you have selected to receive settlement.
We do not hold or custody any of the cryptocurrencies received as payment for goods and services from your End-Users. All proceeds will be held by you in the cryptoasset wallet linked to your Business Account.
Settlement will usually happen within a 24-hour window but it may sometimes take longer. You will always be able to see the status of payments in your dashboard.
We will not be responsible for any losses you may incur as a result of providing an incorrect non-custodial wallet address, losses resulting from technical errors related to your non-custodial cryptoasset wallet or losses resulting from a fluctuation in the price of cryptocurrency.
In your Business Account dashboard, you may select to initiate a Payout in cryptocurrency. Once initiated, the smart contract will route the transaction to the external wallet address provided by you. You will need to sign the transaction using the private keys stored in your cryptoasset wallet.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the destination wallet address is correct. This is an on-chain transaction, and it is therefore final. We will not be able to reverse this transaction and we will not be responsible for any losses you incur as a result.
If you wish to make a Payout in fiat currency, we will create a transaction instruction to a third-party wallet address belonging to one of our partner exchange providers; and you will need to sign that transaction using the private keys in your cryptoasset wallet to make an on-chain transfer. The cryptocurrency will then be converted into fiat using the exchange rate shown to you during confirmation.
Due Ltd is not a registered cryptoasset business and it does not engage in the exchange itself. Your transaction will be subject to the third-party terms.
In your Business Account dashboard you may select to initiate a Pay-in in cryptocurrency. Once initiated, the smart contract will route the transaction to the wallet address linked to your Due account.
You can obtain the wallet address linked to your account from your dashboard, which can then be shared with whom you will receive the cryptocurrency from. This address may vary depending on the type of cryptocurrency you wish to receive.
You may also receive a Crypto Pay-in by generating a payment link to your wallet through your dashboard.
We support payments with most cryptocurrencies. You may find more information in the FAQ section of our website.
End-Users who connect their cryptoasset wallet from which they wish to make payment will see the list of supported cryptocurrencies in the available balances of the dashboard.
We may from time to time add or remove from the list of supported cryptocurrencies without prior notice. Such changes may be made with immediate effect.
Business Account dashboard
You can manage your account through the Business Account dashboard. Only you, and any employees authorised by you, will have access to this dashboard and you should keep your login details secure at all times.
You can use the dashboard to perform any of the following actions:
- Connect a non-custodial wallet of your choice to your Business Account. This is the non-custodial wallet address that we will use for cryptocurrency settlement purposes. We will show you your cryptocurrency balance per cryptocurrency in the dashboard;
- Connect an e-money or bank account to your Business Account. This is the e-money or bank account we will use for fiat settlement purposes.
- See information about all payments into and out of your non-custodial wallet;
- Select your preferred settlement cryptocurrency;
- Generate API keys and create Webhook endpoints that will allow your server to get webhooks from our platform;
- Invite other people to make use of your Business Account (for example employees of your company);
- Change your preferred language, base currency and theme (dark, light or system)
In the dashboard, we will also show you:
- Notifications for new products or services, marketing and promotional information
- System and transactional messages
From time to time we may add or remove features or functionalities. We may do this without prior notice.
Non-custodial cryptoasset wallet
In order to accept, process and receive payments from your End-Users through our services, you need to connect to your Business Account a non-custodial cryptoasset wallet.
To do so, you may use our interface to create a non-custodial cryptoasset wallet in just a couple of easy steps, or if you already have a non-custodial cryptoasset wallet, you may connect your existing wallet to your Business Account. This is the wallet address which will be linked to your Due account and used for settlement.
Non-custodial cryptoasset wallets are decentralised and we have no control over your wallet. If you create your wallet through our Business Account, our service will also allow you to store the private cryptographic keys but we have no control over, or access to, these private cryptographic keys. We also do not custody these keys for you; our service only provides a technical solution for you to save the private cryptographic keys. As with all non-custodial wallets, it is your responsibility to ensure that these private keys always remain safe.
If your non-custodial cryptoasset wallet becomes compromised, we will not be able to assist you in recovering any cryptocurrencies lost as a result, and we will not be responsible for any loss that you may incur as a result.
Due Ltd does not currently facilitate cryptocurrency or fiat refunds to your End-Users on your behalf. If you need to have a refund policy in order to comply with applicable legal requirements or if you wish to issue a refund, you will need to do this through a different method.
Alternatively, you may initiate a separate transfer to the End-User equivalent to the amount of the original purchase. Note however that this transfer is a standalone transaction, and will not be tied to the original sale.
You accept to be bound by and pay any fees in relation to the provision of our services as set out below.
Crypto Checkout and Payment fees
We charge a fee in respect of all payments that are processed using our services. We will also charge ‘network fees’ on top of the flat transactional fee. Network fees are charged by the blockchain network and vary depending on how busy the network is at any given time.
The breakdown of fees will be clearly shown to you before you confirm the payment.
Crypto Payout fees
When sending out your cryptocurrency on-chain, we may charge a small fee which includes network fees, which are charged by the blockchain networks, as well as fees of our own. These fees will be clearly displayed to you during the payout flow before you confirm the transaction.
Fiat Pay-in fees
When adding funds to your account with fiat currency, we or our third-party partners may charge a small fee to facilitate the exchange and money movement. Such fees will always be disclosed to you during the pay-in flow before you confirm the transaction.
Our terms and conditions govern the use of API tools, source code and documentation that we may make available to you from time to time.
Due Ltd grants a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable licence to use and integrate the API tools made available subject to this agreement so that you may use Due’s services.
The API tools remain the intellectual property of Due Ltd and you must disconnect and stop using them immediately if you or we close your Business Account.
API Keys are generated in the dashboard and allow your services to access some of the basic functionality of the Due Platform. You may use the API keys in order to:
- Create a merchant account and a settlement rule (cryptocurrency and address for settlement)
- Create checkout sessions and payment links
- Create pay-out recipients and pay-out orders
- Create pay-in (fiat on-ramp) orders
- Pull the list of all payments and pay-outs you have processed by using our platform
From time to time we may add additional functionalities.
However, those API keys do not allow you to initiate any transactions with your wallet. In order to do that you must use the cryptographic keys in your cryptoasset wallet.
Use of your Business Account
These terms are binding to you, but you can authorise other individuals (for example employees of your company) to carry out certain activities on your behalf. To the extent that anyone else uses your Business Account or these services, they will also be bound by the terms of this agreement.
We will treat all instructions and actions by any persons that you authorise to use the account as acting within the limits of their authority and as if you had given that instruction or carried out that action yourself.
It is your responsibility to withdraw access to the account from any person that you previously authorised (for example, if they are no longer employed by you). You will be exclusively responsible for any actions they perform using your Business Account.
YOU MUST KEEP THE LOGIN DETAILS TO YOUR BUSINESS ACCOUNT SAFE AT ALL TIMES.
If we need to communicate with you, we will use the email address provided when you register for your Business Account with us. It is important that you keep your contact information up to date and it is your responsibility to ensure that we can communicate with you.
In case we are unable to reach you in the contact information provided, we will not be liable for any loss you may incur as a result, including any consequential losses.
Communications between you and us will, unless otherwise agreed between us, be made in the English language.

Cryptocurrencies are not regulated; in most countries they do not have legal tender status and their value is not guaranteed.
