Use of the service that constitutes abuse shall be determined by PBCS, in its sole discretion. PBCS reserves the right to terminate your account if PBCS determines you have not complied with the terms of service.

PBCS can also terminate your account upon receiving reliable information involving your violation of any law, and will cooperate with law enforcement agencies on such matters.

  1. Technical Support
PBCS will provide unlimited technical support via phone and email for customer questions from 7am to 5pm (EST) Sunday through Thursday.
  1. Credit Card Processing and Refunds
Customers are responsible for creating their own credit card processing merchant accounts and setting up their accounts to withdraw money to their bank accounts through the chosed merchant provider platform. If you, the customer, wish to accept credit card payments with a secure gateway, you are responsible for setting up that payment gateway and a merchant account, with an approved Wizevents gateway provider (i.e. Authorize.net or Stripe). The fees charged by the merchant provider and gateway company are separate from PBCS fees.  
Customers are responsible for issuing refunds requested by their donors since Wizevents does not collect any donor money. All donations go directly to the Customer's bank account through a secure 3rd party merchant provider gateway.
  1. Fees and Payment
Wizevents usage pricing varies depending on usage. See Wizevent Pricing Plans.
  1. Campaigns
For all paid Wizevents clients, PBCS Technology offers, at no additional charge, the Campaigns platform for fundraising either with or without the option of P2P fundraisers and matchers.
Option to Cover Platform and Processing Fees

Note that when a donor chooses to help the non-profit organization cover processing fees, this includes both credit card processing fees and Wizevents platform fees. As a special courtesy to the non-profit organization, PBCS (owner of Wizevents) only receives payment for platform fees from the non-profit when the donor selects to help cover processing fees on the checkout screen, otherwise, PBCS (owner of Wizevents) receives no revenue from the non-profit for platform fees.
The breakout calculation of credit card process fees vs platform fees when a donor chooses to help cover processing fess are as follows:
The donor chooses a percentage of the donation amount to add as an “optional fee” (0%, 3%, 5%, 7% or 10%) donated in addition to their base donation amount. If the organization is approved for non-profit pricing and has conveyed this to PBCS (owner of Wizevents), the “optional fee” donated to the non-profit for credit card processing fees is estimated based on Stripe’s special non-profit rate of 2.2% + $0.30 of the donation (for AMEX the rate charged to the non-profit is 3.5%). If the organization has not been approved for non-profit pricing or the organization has not alerted PBCS (owner of Wizevents) that they are approved, the estimated credit card processing fees are based on 2.9% + $0.30 for all  card types used.  The remainder of the optional fee donated by the donor to the non-profit organization is paid by the non-profit organization to PBCS (owner of Wizevents) for use and maintenance of the Wizevents platform. If the donor chooses not to help the non-profit organization cover processing fees on top of their donation, the non-profit pays nothing to PBCS (owner of Wizevents) for use of the Wizevents platform.
The special credit card rates stated above are based on Stripe’s non-profit pricing as of February 2024. In addition, the credit card fees do not take into consideration international credit card fees charged by Stripe. For up-to-date fees charged by Stripe, please refer to Stripe’s website. It is the organization’s responsibility to procure non-profit pricing from Stripe, otherwise the credit card fees collected by Wizevents may not accurately reflect the actual credit card fees.
PBCS Technology reserves the right to make changes to these platform and processing fees at any point during a campaign and update them here in the Terms and Conditions.
