4. FORMATION OF CONTRACT
Each Payment Transaction which we perform for you is a separate contract that incorporates the Terms and Conditions that are valid at the moment when your Payment Transaction is initiated. You shall inform the Recipient of the Payment Transaction accordingly.
Upon your separate request, we will provide you with a copy of the Terms and Conditions relevant for your executed Payment Transaction by e-mail or by placing them within your account in the Ria Money Transfer App. This will be done free of charge.
We may amend the Terms and Conditions from time to time, for example, in order to comply with changes in the law or regulatory requirements or due to changes in market conditions. Therefore, in the event you intend to initiate multiple Payment Transactions while using Our Services over the course of time, please consider that the Terms and Conditions might have changed from the last time you transacted with us and, therefore, you should read the Terms and Conditions prior to initiating any additional Payment Transactions.
You will be able to find updated Terms and Conditions, after your first Payment Transaction is initiated, on the Ria Money Transfer App. Such updates will not oblige you and will not replace your duty to read and confirm the applicable Terms and Conditions prior to initiating each new Payment Transaction which will be made available to you on the Ria Money Transfer App.
Changes that we make to these Terms and Conditions will normally only apply to Payment Orders entered into after the date the revised Terms and Conditions become effective, but will also apply to Payment Orders entered into before such date where we are required to do so by law or regulatory requirements. In any event, and for the avoidance of doubt, the updated version of the Terms and Conditions shall supersede the previous version.
We do not guarantee that the Ria Money Transfer App, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. We may suspend or withdraw or restrict the availability of all or any part of the Ria Money Transfer App for business and operational reasons. We will try to give you reasonable notice (for example, by posting a message on the Ria Money Transfer App or by sending an email to the email address last provided by you) of any scheduled suspension or withdrawal.
6. ACCESS TO OUR SERVICES
By using the Ria Money Transfer App, you represent and warrant that you are 18 years or older and of legal age to enter into a binding contract with us. If it comes to our attention through reliable means that you are under 18 years of age, we will cancel your account (profile) and, to the extent allowed by applicable laws, we will delete all your information from our system and records, except to the extent that it is required to be stored by us under the applicable legal acts.
You must have a valid user account in order to use Our Services (“user account”). You can apply through the Ria Money Transfer App to establish a user account by entering your personal information and a password, and confirming your acceptance of the Terms and Conditions. If we accept your application, we will establish your user account and activate it for use to access Our Services, subject to the limitations set forth in the Terms and Conditions. All information that you provide will be stored in your user account and maintained by us and/or certain companies engaged by us or our Group to provide Our Services. Having the user account does not oblige you to use any of Our Services or to perform any other regular action or checks. You have a right to delete the user account anytime you want. Your user account serves only for your own benefit of making Our Services more comfortable for your use, as well as a tool which allows us to re-match your previous data with the new use of Our Services.
You will be able to access Our Services via the Ria Money Transfer App by correctly entering your username and password (together your “User ID”), as well as authenticating your identity with a one-time-password (OTP) when prompted, but in no other circumstances. Your User ID is strictly confidential, personal and non-transferable. It is your responsibility to ensure you keep your User ID and any other security features associated with your access to the Ria Money Transfer App (including any Payment Order details) safe and secure. NEVER SHARE YOUR USER ID WITH ANYBODY, DO NOT WRITE IT DOWN ANYWHERE AND DO NOT GIVE ANY ACCESS TO THE RIA MONEY TRANSFER APP TO ANYONE! If you become aware or have any suspicion that your User ID is no longer confidential or has been compromised in any way, if you lost your mobile phone and suspect that anyone has obtained access to your user account and Ria Money Transfer App, you must contact us immediately at the corresponding Customer Support email or phone number for the country you reside in. Please refer to our Customer Support contact information by country. Any undue delay in contacting us may affect the security of Our Service and/or result in you being liable for any losses.
As no payment account will be opened for you by us, in order to use Our Services while connecting to your user account, you will be required to attach and link your Bank Card issued by a Card Issuer with your user account. To initiate a Payment Transaction through us, you will be requested to deduct funds from that Bank Card which will then be remitted by us to the Recipient. Deduction of funds from the Bank Card may be subject to additional requirements applied by the Card Issuer (e.g. authentication of deduction might be required) and it is your responsibility to comply with such requirements.
Once you have informed us of the unauthorised use of your User ID or Ria Money Transfer App, we will take all necessary action to prevent any further use of your user account with this information. We will inform you of such steps after having taken them and provide the reasons for taking such steps unless we are prevented from doing so for legal reasons. Taking these steps do not make us liable for any loss or damage caused as a consequence of your failure to comply with your duties under the Terms and Conditions. However, we may have limited ability to prevent unauthorized use of your Bank Card linked with your user account and to ensure maximum safety you should always contact the Bank Issuer that issued the Bank Card to you as well. Subject to the applicable laws and regulations, you will be responsible for damages caused to us as a consequence of the unauthorised use of your User ID.
We reserve the right to disable your User ID at our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have failed to comply with any provision of the Terms and Conditions.

7. REQUIRED HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE
You must have equipment or telecommunication lines including a computer or mobile device with an operating system that might be served by us and a possibility to store records on a durable medium, e.g. in your mobile phone (or a printer to print out and retain records on paper), as may be necessary for you to use Our Services. You acknowledge that certain software and equipment used by you may not be capable of supporting our software and that as a result you may not be able to use Our Services. You should save the notices, disclosures and statements we send to you electronically.
To access and keep notifications, disclosures and statements which are provided electronically, you must have:
(i) A device which operates on a platform with the quality of the Android or iOS environment, or higher
(ii) An internet connection
(iii) A current version of Android 4.4 (or higher) or iOS 8 (or higher)
(iv) A device and operating system capable of supporting all of the above
We reserve the right to discontinue support of any software if, in our opinion, it suffers from a security or other flaw that makes it unsuitable for use with Our Services.
We are not responsible for the content, policies, goods or services of any other persons or websites linked to or accessible via the Ria Money Transfer App. The existence of any link to any other mobile application or website does not constitute an endorsement of, or association with, any such mobile application, website or any person operating any such mobile application or website. Any reliance on any content, policies or services of any other persons or websites is at your sole risk. Any queries, concerns or complaints concerning such mobile applications or websites should be directed to the persons responsible for their operation.
8. ISSUE OF PAYMENT ORDERS
Subject to the Terms and Conditions you will be able to use Our Services by logging into the Ria Money Transfer App and within the Ria Money Transfer App giving us your Payment Orders.
Each Payment Order must include such information as we determine from time to time for the Payment Order to be executed by us, including (without limitation) the following information:
- Name and other details (e.g. in some cases address, date of birth) identifying the Recipient.
- Destination country of the Payment Transaction.
- Amount and currency of the Payment Transaction.
- In case of a Payment Transaction to a Recipient’s bank account, the IBAN code (International Bank Account Number) when such bank account has an IBAN code, or the bank account code as corresponds in each case.
- In those cases where funds should be received by the Recipient at a specific location of the Paying Agent, the relevant address required to identify the pickup location of the Paying Agent.
Once you enter the above information, you will be required to authenticate the Payment Order by means required by your Card issuer and by us.
We will only accept a Payment Order which is given to us through the Ria Money Transfer App. Your instruction to perform a Payment Transaction will be treated by us as your consent for us to proceed with, and our authorization to perform, that Payment Transaction.
We accept payment by Bank Card as the designated method of payment to us for the execution of your Payment Transaction and the customer fee we charge for the Payment Transaction. You must:
(i) authorize your Card Issuer to transfer the funds required by us for the Payment Transaction so that: (a) such funds are charged to the account linked to your Bank Card; and (b) we receive an authorization from the Card Issuer and subsequently receive the funds required by us to proceed with the Payment Order;
(ii) ensure that your method of payment has sufficient funds or credit available and received by us in time to enable us to proceed with the Payment Order;
(iii) ensure that we have received the funds we tell you are required to proceed with the Payment Transaction before we execute your Payment Order. This sum must be immediately available to us in cleared funds and made by your Bank Card.
We do not provide credit and are not able to advance any funds to cover any part of your Payment Transaction.
Your Card Issuer and/or your bank or credit institution will also have terms and conditions that apply to your use of your Bank Card or bank account to which the Bank Card is linked, and you must refer to such agreement(s) when making the funds required for the Payment Transaction to proceed, as such terms and conditions may include the application of fees and charges and other provisions imposed by your Card Issuer and/or your bank or credit institution.
9. CURRENCY EXCHANGE
If you ask us to execute a Payment Order for a Payment Transaction in favor of a Recipient in a currency other than euro (EUR), then we will check whether we can service the requested currency, and if yes, then we will apply a retail exchange rate in addition to any service charge, and we will tell you what this retail exchange rate is prior to authorizing the Payment Order. The payout currency for such Payment Transaction is acquired by us at a wholesale rate that fluctuates. The difference between the retail exchange rate applied to such Payment Transaction and the wholesale exchange rate at which we acquired the payout currency will be kept by us and/or the paying agent as revenue, in addition to any service charges. You will always be shown the applicable exchange rate on the screen of the Ria Money Transfer App prior to you confirming the Payment Order. Thus, you will always be able to stop the Payment Order if the exchange rate is unacceptable to you.
For further information about the price calculator (setting out available currencies and countries and exchange rates), payout locations and customer fee and exchange rates, please see the FAQ section on the Ria Money Transfer App.
10. PAYMENT TRANSACTION EXECUTION
Our Services provide various options by which a Payment Transaction is received, including cash at a Paying Agent or direct transfer to a bank account of the Recipient.
General provisions applicable to each Payment Transaction
Once a Payment Order is received by us, it shall be irrevocable (except to the extent that it may be withdrawn by you as set out in clause 18). A Payment Order is deemed to be received at the point in time that we record in our systems that it has been actually received, subject to the following exceptions: (i) if the Payment Order is recorded as received on a non-Business Day – it will be considered as received on the first following Business Day; (ii) if the Payment Order is recorded as received on a Business Day, but not during business hours, which are 8 am – 5 pm (Vilnius time) - it will be considered as received on the first following Business Day. If we execute a Payment Order based on incorrect details provided by you (e.g. incorrect IBAN for the Recipient’s bank account), the Payment Order will be deemed executed properly and we shall not be liable for any losses incurred. Even though we shall not be held liable for the execution of the Payment Order based on the incorrect data provided by you, we shall undertake all reasonable measures to track the executed payment operation and shall undertake reasonable efforts in an effort to recover the funds. To the extent allowed under applicable laws, all information held by us necessary to track the executed payment operation shall be provided to you in order to assist you with directly contacting the person who received the payment instead of your intended Recipient.
Once a Payment Order has been received and executed by us in accordance with the Terms and Conditions, we shall provide you with the following information, without any undue delay, in electronic format via the Ria Money Transfer App:
- A reference number enabling you to identify the Payment Transaction and the Recipient.
- The amount of the Payment Transaction stated in the currency used in the Payment Order.
- Confirmation of any customer fees and/or costs related to the Payment Transaction that you must pay to us.
- If a Payment Transaction involves currency exchange, the exchange rate used by us to execute the Payment Transaction and the amount of the Payment Transaction after this currency conversion.
- The date we received the Payment Order.
When the Payment Transaction has been confirmed, you will automatically receive an e-mail notification at the e-mail address you provided. Once the Payment Transaction has been executed by us, you will also receive e-mail notifications at the e-mail address you provided to us confirming (i) when the funds have arrived at the Paying Agent and (ii) if applicable, when the funds have been collected by the Recipient.
If a Payment Transaction is not paid to a Recipient within 21 or 30 days (depending on the relevant Paying Agent involved in the Payment Transaction), we will automatically cancel the Payment Transaction and notify you accordingly. Thereafter, the funds comprising the Payment Transaction will not be available for collection by the Recipient and will be held by us on trust until we are able to reimburse the same to you (which shall be via the same payment method you used to fund the Payment Transaction).
Collection of a Payment Transaction via a Payment Agent
If we receive a Payment Order together with the necessary cleared funds to be transferred and the fees associated with the Payment Transaction by 5.00 pm (Vilnius Time) on a Business Day, the Payment Order will be deemed to have been received by us on that Business Day. If a Payment Order is received by us after 5.00 pm (Vilnius Time) on a Business Day or on a day that is not a Business Day, the Payment Order will be deemed to have been received by us on the Business Day following the receipt of the Payment Order. The Business Day on which a Payment Order is deemed to have been received is referred to as the “Day of Receipt.”
Subject to applicable laws, we shall proceed with the execution of the Payment Order and make funds available to the Recipient at the latest by the end of the Business Day following the Day of Receipt.
For regular Payment Transactions, the funds are normally available for collection within a few minutes, subject to the business hours of the respective Paying Agent, where applicable. For some countries, Our Services may be delayed or other restrictions may apply. If you require further information, please contact our customer service team, the contact details of whom are in clause 26 of the Terms and Conditions.
To collect a Payment Transaction from a Paying Agent, the Recipient must provide all details about the Payment Transaction required by us (“Collection Details”). The Recipient must also provide photographic evidence of identity (e.g. passport, ID card). The acceptable forms of evidence of identity differ depending on the country in which the funds are to be collected. You remain ultimately responsible for the submission of the Collection Details to the Recipient.
YOU MUST NOT GIVE ANY OF THE COLLECTION DETAILS (REDACTED OR OTHERWISE) TO ANYONE OTHER THAN YOUR CHOSEN RECIPIENT. YOU MUST ALSO DO ALL YOU REASONABLY CAN TO ENSURE THAT NO ONE, OTHER THAN YOUR CHOSEN RECIPIENT, CAN OBTAIN THE COLLECTION DETAILS OR ANY PART OF THEM. IF YOU DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY DISCLOSE ANY COLLECTION DETAILS TO ANYONE OTHER THAN YOUR CHOSEN RECIPIENT, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE IF WE PAY THE FUNDS TO SOMEONE OTHER THAN THE RECIPIENT, WHO GIVES THE PAYING AGENT THE COLLECTION DETAILS AND, WHAT THE AGENT BELIEVES TO BE VALID EVIDENCE OF IDENTIFICATION.
Collection of a Payment Transaction via bank account and/or in another currency
For a Payment Transaction (i) to a state outside the EEA or (ii) subject to a multiple currency conversion between the Euro and a non-Euro currency of a Member State of the European Union or an EEA Member state or (iii) which is not to be paid out in Euro or (iv) which is to be paid to the Recipient’s bank account, the funds will be made available to the Recipient at the latest by the end of the fourth Business Day after the Day of Receipt.
Banking practices and Payment Transaction execution timeframes may vary if your Payment Transaction is to a Recipient’s account which is in a non-EEA currency account or to an account outside the EEA. For more information on when a Payment Transaction will be credited to such an account, you will need to contact the Recipient’s account provider.
11. UNAUTHORIZED PAYMENT TRANSACTIONS
We may be liable to you under applicable laws where we perform a Payment Transaction for you that you did not authorize us to perform.
Where you believe we may have performed a Payment Transaction you did not authorize us to perform, you should let us know as soon as possible via the contact details set out at clause 26 below. We will then investigate the matter.
Subject to the paragraphs below, where we have performed such a Payment Transaction and the investigation of the matter shows that in fact a Payment Transaction was executed without your authorization, we will immediately (no later than the end of the next Business Day) refund to you in full the amount of that Payment Transaction.
You will not be entitled to any such refund:
- if you do not inform us by notice in writing without undue delay on your becoming aware that an unauthorised Payment Transaction may have occurred, and in any event not later than 13 months after the date on which the unauthorised Payment Transaction was made; or
- if the Payment Transaction was authorised by you; or
- if an unauthorized Payment Transaction was performed due to your fault (e.g. you disclosed your user account and authentication details); or
- if we have a reasonable ground to suspect fraud in such actions and we report this to the Bank of Lithuania (in which case, the refund is suspended pending of the investigation of the fraud case).
You will be liable to us for all losses which we suffer or incur relating to any fraud or fraudulent activity by you at any time. However, you shall not suffer any loss or fees in the event an unauthorized Payment Transaction is executed by us through no fault of yours.
12. NON-EXECUTION OR FAULTY EXECUTION OF PAYMENT TRANSACTIONS
We, as your payment service provider, are responsible for the proper execution of Payment Transactions, provided that all Payment Transaction details provided by you are correct, properly submitted, and there is no ground to reject the execution of the Payment Transaction. Accordingly, we may be liable to you under applicable laws where we fail to perform or incorrectly perform any Payment Transaction that you authorized us to perform.
Where you believe we may have failed to perform or incorrectly performed such a Payment Transaction, you should let us know as soon as possible via the contact details set out at clause 26 below and, if you request, we will make immediate efforts to investigate the matter and let you know the outcome of our investigation.
Subject to the paragraphs below, where we have failed to perform or incorrectly performed such a Payment Transaction, we will without undue delay make good and correct the error and deliver the amount of the unperformed or incorrectly performed Payment Transaction as originally instructed. You will not be charged for such a corrected Payment Transaction.
You will not be entitled to the remedy mentioned above:
- if you do not inform us by notice in writing without undue delay (and in any event not later than 13 months after the date on which the incorrect Payment Transaction was performed) on your becoming aware of our failure to perform a Payment Transaction authorised by you or incorrect performance by us of a Payment Transaction authorised by you may have occurred; or
- where we are able to show that the authorised amount was received at the appropriate time by the Recipient; or
- the failure to perform or incorrect performance was due to you providing us with incomplete or incorrect information or was otherwise due to your fault.
We will have no liability to you for failure to execute, or any incorrect execution of, a Payment Transaction where the reason was our refusal to proceed with that Payment Transaction or any part of it or if the Payment Transaction was incorrectly performed due to your fault (e.g. by providing incorrect payment or Recipient data).
Use of Our Services will incur a customer transaction fee which will be charged to the Bank Card you identify as the payment method for your Payment Transaction, customer fee, and any other costs as provided in these Terms and Conditions. In accordance with applicable laws and regulations, and before execution of a Payment Order, we shall provide information to you regarding the fee and any applicable exchange rates, which will be displayed in the order preview section of the Ria Money Transfer App. If you do not accept the fees or exchange rates applied, you shall have a right to revoke the Payment Transaction until such time as the Payment Order is received by the Recipient, as described in section 10 of these Terms and Conditions.
In addition to any fees charged by us, a Payment Transaction may be subject to other fees and costs and exchange rates payable to other parties, for example, banks and other payment institutions involved in the Payment Transaction, as well as deductions that may apply (for example, for tax reasons) as required by the authorities of the destination country of the Payment Transaction. The amount that we deduct will be no more than the amount of our legal responsibility.
If you use your mobile phone in connection with a Payment Transaction, you will also be responsible for any fees that your phone service provider may charge, such as fees for SMS, data services, and any other fees that your phone service provider may charge.
14. SET OFF

19. CHANGES BEYOND OUR CONTROL
We do not assume any liability if we are unable to perform any of our obligations to you or our performance of any of our obligations is delayed due to any circumstances outside of our reasonable control, including (without limitation) any industrial action, labour dispute, act of God, fire, flood or storm, war, riot, civil commotion, siege, security alert, act of terrorism or any resulting precautionary measures taken, act of vandalism, sabotage, virus, malicious damage, compliance with any statute, statutory provision, law, governmental or court order, the actions or instructions of the police or of any governmental or regulatory body which authorizes us to perform Our Services, cut or failure of power, failure of equipment, systems or software or internet interconnectivity, or the occurrence of any extraordinary fluctuation in any financial market that may materially adversely affect our ability to perform Our Services or our obligations under Lithuanian law.
