US Terms of Service
Welcome to Clip!
These Terms only apply to Clip users and Clip services in the United States of America. If you are located in Canada, please see our Canadian Terms. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the respective meanings given to them in the Service Addenda.
Clip Money (USA), Inc. (“Clip”, “we”, “us” or “our”) provides a digital-first platform where small businesses can conveniently access business banking services such as cash deposits (US legal tender only) at self-service smart drop locations (“ClipDrop”), have faster access to their accounts cash receipts through the use of intelligent recycling ATMs (“ClipATM”), or receive coin and note denominations required to run their business (“ClipChange”).
Please carefully read these terms of service as set out below along with any applicable Service Addenda (such Service Addenda defined below and together with the general terms set forth herein, the “Terms”) before using the Clip website, Clip web or mobile application(s) (“Clip App”), ClipDrop, ClipATM, and/or ClipChange (together with the Clip App and any other services or applications offered by us). These Terms govern your access to and the use of Clip, including the messages, information, data, text, software, images and other content that make up Clip (the “Content,” which Content is part of Clip). These Terms exempt us and others from liability and/or limit our and their liability and contain other important provisions that apply to your use of Clip.
Your use of Clip is conditioned on your acceptance of these Terms. By visiting or using Clip, you agree on your own behalf and on behalf of any organization on whose behalf you may act (collectively referred to herein as “you”), to accept and abide by these Terms for each use of and each visit to Clip. If you agree to these Terms on behalf of any organization, you confirm that you have authority to do so.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to add to, remove, modify or otherwise change any part of these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time. If we update these Terms, the “Last Updated” notice at the top of this document shall be amended to reflect the last date of such changes. Changes will be effective as of the date the changes to these Terms are made available on Clip. It is your responsibility to check these Terms each time you access Clip to determine whether any changes have been made, including by checking the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms. If any change to these Terms is not acceptable to you, you must discontinue your use of Clip immediately. Your continued use of Clip after any such changes are posted will constitute acceptance of those changes. These Terms apply exclusively to your use and access of Clip and do not alter the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with us.
1. Additional Terms
Clip partners with one or more third-party providers to complete your transactions and to provide you with services and/or applications (“Service Providers”). Use of certain features of Clip may require you to agree to: (i) additional terms and conditions set forth in Service Addenda (each, a “Service Addendum”) and/or (ii) additional third-party terms, which are available in the Clip App or on the Clip Money website. By using those features, you acknowledge that you have agreed to each and every applicable Service Addendum and any additional third-party terms.
2. Your Clip Account
- To use Clip, you must register for an account with us (a “Clip Account”). During registration, we will ask you for certain information and your consent, which are required for registration. This information may include (and may be subject to change from time to time): (i) information about the account or accounts at banks and other financial institutions to which you would like to credit (each, a “Bank Account”), (ii) information about your business, including ownership, address, incorporation date, formation documents, tax ID number, and business sector, and (iii) consent to run a credit check against you. You must provide accurate and complete registration information in order to submit your registration, and you must keep that information current. To open a Clip Account, you must be at least the age of majority where you reside.
- Submission of registration information does not guarantee that you will be granted permission to use Clip. Your use of Clip is subject to our customer identification policies, as well as certain applicable laws, such as United States federal and state anti-money laundering, anti-terrorist funding laws, and other financial industry laws, which may require certain identification verification processes to be completed before access to Clip is granted to you (“KYC Process”). If such identification verification processes are not completed, or if we or any of our Service Providers do not approve of your use of Clip (including the Banking Provider and Lender), you cannot use Clip.
- When you associate a Bank Account to your Clip Account, we may verify the accuracy of your Bank Account information by using a third-party account verification service. If required by such third-party account verification service, you must agree to any additional terms related to this verification service to associate such Bank Account.
- You may only use Clip to engage in each applicable Clip service and to request credit to your Bank Account, Deposit Account (defined below) or to Bank Accounts for which you are identified within Clip as having permission to receive deposits and/or make any debit transaction permitted under these Terms. You may only use Clip for your own internal business purposes. You may not use Clip to credit any bank account for which you are not the account holder or for which you do not have permission. You may authorize multiple user(s) once the initial account verification process is completed.
- By accepting these terms, you represent and warrant that your business: (i) is domiciled in, has its principal place of business in, and is organized under the laws of, a state of the United States or the District of Columbia; (ii) has not dissolved or ceased to do business and has not commenced a proceeding under debtor relief laws, and no proceeding under any debtor relief law has been commenced against you or your business; and (iii) is not affiliated with us or Lender. Additionally, you represent and warrant that: (A) your use of Clip will be solely for business or commercial purposes; (B) your Bank Account provided to us and your use of any Clip service are solely for business and commercial purposes; and (C) the Bank Account, Clip App, ClipDrop, ClipATM, ClipChange and all associated services will not be used for personal, family, or household purposes.
- For the avoidance of doubt, you authorize us to debit your Bank Account as outlined in these Terms, and, if necessary, initiate adjustments for any transactions credited/debited in error. This authority will remain in effect until you notify us in writing to cancel it in such time as to afford us and the Banking Provider a reasonable opportunity to act on your notice. Further, in the event an ACH debit of your Deposit Account is rejected for any amount for which a Clip service has been requested, you authorize us to charge the full amount for the requested service, plus any applicable fees and charges, from your Bank Account.

However, a party may assert a claim in small claims court, if the asserted claim qualifies and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. This Arbitration Agreement is intended to be broadly interpreted. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
Before a party may initiate arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement for a Dispute, notification of the dispute must be submitted to us in writing within 30 calendar days of the date of the receipt received via Clip App Notification.

All costs and expenses of the arbitration will be borne by the parties equally unless the arbitrator otherwise directs.
EACH PARTY AGREES THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE PARTY SEEKING RELIEF. THE ARBITRATOR CANNOT AWARD RELIEF THAT AFFECTS OTHER CLIP USERS.

ClipDrop Service Addendum
The terms of this service addendum (“Service Addendum”) and the Terms of Service (“Terms”) are applicable to ClipDrop services. This Service Addendum may be renewed from time to time. Capitalized terms not defined in this Service Addendum have the meanings ascribed to them in the Terms, which are hereby incorporated by reference and made part of this Service Addendum.
As part of using ClipDrop, you agree that you are also entering into an agreement with Brinks Capital LLC (“Lender”), where Lender is agreeing to extend you a monthly line of credit from which you can request a draw against for Credit, as further defined herein and subject to this Service Addendum and the additional terms between you and Lender as set out in Section 1 of this Service Addendum (the “Credit Agreement”).
1. Requesting and Receiving Credit.
The following Credit Agreement is expressly between you and Lender. By using ClipDrop, you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions of Lender:
- Once you have completed registration with Lender, including submitting any required identification documents, and have been approved, we will provide you (at your expense) with specifically designed containers (“ClipDrop Bags”) for the purpose of placing U.S. currency (“Property”) into a Service Location. Prior to placing a ClipDrop Bag into any equipment, you must first request Credit from Lender for the Property placed in any ClipDrop Bag. Each declaration for a ClipDrop Bag made by you in the Clip App shall constitute a request for Lender to advance funds to your Deposit Account (“Credit”). Your declaration must include the Property value in each ClipDrop Bag placed in the equipment and the serial number of the ClipDrop Bag. It is your sole responsibility to accurately report the Property you place in the equipment. You may only access, open, and interact with the equipment at Service Locations in accordance with this Service Addendum, including all ClipDrop Instructions (defined below). The aggregate daily amount of Credit you can request from Lender and Property you can place in the equipment shall not exceed your daily deposit credit limit, as set out in the Clip App (the “Daily Deposit Limit”). You also agree not to place more than $5.00 in coins in any ClipDrop Bag.
- You agree: (i) you will only place Property into a ClipDrop Bag and only place sealed ClipDrop Bags into the equipment at a Service Location; and (ii) you will place the identified ClipDrop Bag in the equipment promptly after requesting Credit in the Clip App. After you place Property in the equipment at a Service Location, Lender shall initiate issuance of Credit via ACH to your Deposit Account at Banking Provider based on the declared value of the Property of your ClipDrop Bag (“Declared Value”). This Credit shall constitute a draw against the line of credit extended from Lender to you. For the purposes of ClipDrop services, the line of credit that Lender is agreeing to extend to you, on a monthly basis, shall not exceed the lesser of (i) the sum of the Daily Deposit Limit (as set out in Section 5 of this Service Addendum) in any given month; and (ii) $150,000.00, or an amount otherwise agreed to in writing by Clip Money, Lender and Banking Provider.
- You agree that Lender will own the Property once placed into the equipment at a Service Location. All right, title and interest to the Property passes to Lender upon the Property being placed into the equipment at a Service Location.

Your Credit balance will be adjusted based upon such actual value(s), and as applicable, you authorize Lender to instruct Banking Provider to debit or credit your Deposit Account for any such variances (see Section 1(f)).

Accordingly, Lender may collaterally assign its rights under this Service Addendum to such Credit Facilitator and that Credit Facilitator shall have the right to, either directly or indirectly, confirm with you the value of the Property you have placed in the equipment at a Service Location and the outstanding amounts owed to Lender by you.

Pursuant to and subject to the additional limits, terms and conditions set forth in Section 6 of this Service Addendum, you must directly notify us of any discrepancy in Credit that Lender provides to you, and you understand and agree that you do not have any right to directly bring action against Lender unless (i) notice to us is first given in the time and manner specifically prescribed by Section 6 of this Service Addendum; and (ii) such action, suit or proceeding is commenced within twelve (12) months after Lender has initiated the Credit at issue.
2. The Deposit to Your Bank Account
Upon making a successful ClipDrop in the equipment at a Service Location in accordance with this Service Addendum (including any ClipDrop Instructions), the Lender extends you credit in the amount of the Declared Value as provided for in your Credit Agreement. You authorize our Banking Provider to initiate an ACH credit and/or debit to your Bank Account plus or minus applicable fees, charges and/or taxes based on Clip App technology.
As part of using Clip services, your information may pre-populate based on the banking details provided by you in the Clip App or you may be required to re-enter your Bank Account or Deposit Account information on online forms in order for Banking Provider to initiate ACH credits and debits on your behalf based on the Clip App technology. If you do not enter your Bank Account or Deposit Account information correctly, ACH credits and debits may not be made to your Bank Account or may be made to the wrong account. By acceptance of this Service Addendum, you acknowledge that we will comply with the National Automated Clearinghouse Association (“NACHA”) standards regarding recovery and reconciliation of funds and you authorize Banking Provider to initiate a debit or credit on your behalf to or from your Bank Account or Deposit Account in compliance with and in accordance with NACHA Rules.
WE, LENDER AND OUR SERVICE PROVIDER DO NOT GUARANTEE OR MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR COVENANTS ON HOW QUICKLY FUNDS WILL BE DEPOSITED TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT OR DEPOSIT ACCOUNT AND HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU IF (I) CREDIT IS DELAYED, (II) YOUR BANK, THE BANKING PROVIDER OR ANY OTHER BANK OR FINANCIAL INSTITUTION REFUSES TO ISSUE A CREDIT TO YOUR DEPOSIT ACCOUNT OR YOUR BANK ACCOUNT, (III) BANKING PROVIDER IS UNABLE TO CREDIT YOUR BANK ACCOUNT OR DEPOSIT ACCOUNT, (IV) CREDIT IS DEPOSITED TO THE WRONG BANK ACCOUNT OR DEPOSIT ACCOUNT BECAUSE YOU ENTERED INCORRECT BANK ACCOUNT OR DEPOSIT ACCOUNT INFORMATION, OR (V) THERE IS ANY ACT OR OMISSION OF YOUR BANK OR ANY OTHER BANK OR FINANCIAL INSTITUTION. BY USING CLIP YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU BEAR THE SOLE RISK FOR ANY LOSSES CAUSED BY INFORMATION INCORRECTLY PROVIDED BY YOU TO US.
3. Problems with Issuing Credit
If Banking Provider is unable to credit or debit your Bank Account or Deposit Account, we will attempt to contact you and to resolve the issue. It is your responsibility to keep your contact information current. For example, a payment instruction made on your behalf may be rejected by the Banking Provider if your Bank Account or Deposit Account has been closed. We may charge additional service fees to resolve these issues.
If Banking Provider is unable to credit or debit your Bank Account or Deposit Account due to inaccurate information or other error caused by you, your representative or any third party, we shall attempt to resolve the issue (less applicable fees and expenses), but are subject to no other liability or obligation to you.
For each initiated Credit you request using the Clip services, we will charge you a fee. Current fees are subject to change; however, any changes will be communicated by email prior to implementing fee increases.
The Clip App will tell you the amount of the fee for each ClipDrop you make using our ClipDrop services. If you do not accept the fee, do not place your Property in any equipment at any Service Location or otherwise use ClipDrop or Clip services. The amount of the fee will be deducted from your Deposit Account. We may also charge additional service fees on a ClipDrop if there is a problem. You may find our current schedule of fees, including charges for shipping and handling of ClipDrop Bags, here.
All fees and other amounts payable by you under this Service Addendum are exclusive of taxes and similar assessments. To the extent that such taxes are charged, you are responsible for all value added tax, use and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties, and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state, or local governmental or regulatory authority.
If any Banking Provider charges us a fee related to initiating ACH debits and/or credits to your Bank Account or Deposit Account for any ClipDrop you make using our Clip services, you agree to pay such fees and agree that we may deduct the fee amount from your Deposit Account or Bank Account.
To the extent that we do not deduct fees, expenses or taxes from your Deposit Account or Bank Account, you agree to promptly pay us for such fees, expenses and taxes. You agree that we, through our Banking Provider and based on Clip App technology, or Banking Provider subject to your Deposit Account Agreement, may chargeback any amount credited to your Bank Account or Deposit Account in error. You authorize Banking Provider, based on Clip App technology, to debit your Bank Account for the difference between the Declared Value and the actual amount in the ClipDrop Bag, or as a result of your ClipDrop Bag containing counterfeit funds, fraud or any other reason provided for in the Deposit Account Agreement you have with the Banking Provider or as permitted under applicable law. You may be responsible and liable for any such chargeback transaction under the terms of your Deposit Account Agreement. You consent to our deducting from funds in your Deposit Account by any outstanding amount that you owe to us. You authorize and agree that Banking Provider shall have the right to issue an ACH debit to your Bank Account for such fees based on Clip App data that Banking Provider receives.

All ClipDrop Bag orders will be available for identification and tracking through Cashboard.
The maximum amount of Credit that you may request or Property that you may place into equipment at a Service Location on a daily basis shall be the lesser of (i) your daily limit as set out in the Clip App or (ii) $5,000, unless otherwise agreed to, in writing, by us, Lender and Banking Provider (“Daily Deposit Limit”).

6. Other Important Rules

Upon the return of such item as provided herein, we forfeit any ownership claim to such item, provided that you reimburse us for our reasonable costs and all third-party costs and fees (including Service Provider and/or Banking Provider charges) in connection with returning such item to you.
Your failure to submit an accurate Property value of a ClipDrop Bag shall forfeit any claim for any loss with respect to the ClipDrop Bag. We and our Service Providers will not be liable for any Property placed into the equipment at a Service Location unless made using a sealed ClipDrop Bag and unless otherwise made in accordance with this Service Addendum, including all ClipDrop Instructions.
Unless you can prove and definitively establish (A) the placement of a sealed ClipDrop Bag into the equipment at a Service Location in accordance with this Service Addendum and (B) the actual value of such ClipDrop Bag, our or Service Provider’s count of the Property and ClipDrop Bags collected from the Service Location at the time of removal will be binding and conclusive on you. We and our Service Providers will not be liable for any shortage of a ClipDrop Bag unless: (i) the ClipDrop Bag does not show external evidence of tampering at the time of removal from the equipment at the Service Location for transportation; and (ii) the ClipDrop Bag shows external evidence of tampering at the time of processing of the ClipDrop Bag at the process location where ClipDrop Bags are processed after removal from the equipment at the Service Location.
We and Service Providers will not be liable for any loss or discrepancy or suspected loss or discrepancy with respect to a ClipDrop Bag (each a “Loss”) unless: (1) you advise us in writing of an issue in respect of such Loss, and request a Loss investigation, no more than fifteen (15) Business Days after Service Provider collects the ClipDrop Bag at issue from the equipment at the applicable Service Location; and (2) your claimed Loss in connection with the ClipDrop Bag exceeds $100. You waive any claim in connection with a ClipDrop Bag if you do not notify us of an issue within the foregoing timeline. We may charge you a reasonable fee (including actual costs) for any investigation of an issue in connection with a ClipDrop Bag. You will promptly and diligently assist us and Service Providers in the investigation of any Loss or suspected Loss, including, providing any records that you maintain to track Property placed in the equipment at a Service Location. Where you suspect a Loss in connection with a ClipDrop Bag, you agree to reasonably mitigate any loss or damages you could suffer in connection with your suspected Loss. For the purposes of this paragraph, the term “Business Day” shall mean a day other than a Saturday, Sunday or bank or other public holiday in the United States.
For avoidance of doubt, any liability for Loss will be the lesser of: (i) the Declared Value of the ClipDrop Bag at issue and as confirmed by our Service Provider as being placed in the equipment at the applicable Service Location; (ii) your Daily Deposit Limit, and (iii) the actual value of the ClipDrop Bag at issue, as verified by the Service Provider.
