We are using a wallet system with peer to peer payments that allow Users to pay each other. We take 8% as a usage fee. You understand that use of the Platform may result in charges to you for the Platform you receive from other Users. After you have received services or goods obtained through your use of the Platform, Heroly will facilitate your payment of the applicable charges on behalf of the User who conducted the service or sold the good, as such User’s limited payment collection agent. Payment of such charges in such manner shall be considered the same as payment made directly by you, as one User, to the other User. Charges will be inclusive of applicable taxes where required by law. Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by Heroly. You retain the right to request lower charges from a User for services received by you from such Third-Party Provider at the time you receive such services or goods. Heroly will respond accordingly to any request from a User to modify charges for a particular service.
All charges are due immediately, and payment will be facilitated by Heroly using the preferred payment method designated in your Heroly account, after which Heroly will keep records of your transactions within the Platform. If your primary payment method is determined to be expired, invalid or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that Heroly may, as the User’s limited payment collection agent, use a secondary payment method in your account, if available.
As between you and Heroly, Heroly reserves the right to establish, remove and/or revise charges for any or all services obtained through the use of the Platform at any time in Heroly’s sole discretion. Heroly will use reasonable efforts to inform you of charges that may apply, provided that you will be responsible for charges incurred under your Heroly account regardless of your awareness of such charges or the amounts thereof. Heroly may from time to time provide certain users with promotional offers and discounts that may result in different amounts charged for the same or similar services obtained through the use of the Platform, and you agree that such promotional offers and discounts, unless also made available to you, shall have no bearing on your use of the Platform or the charges applied to you. You may elect to cancel your request for services from a User at any time prior to such User’s arrival, in which case you may be charged a cancellation fee.
This payment structure is intended to fully compensate the Users for the Platform provided. Heroly does not designate any portion of your payment as a tip or gratuity to the Users.

Notwithstanding any choice of law or other provision in the Terms, the parties agree and acknowledge that this Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“FAA”), will govern its interpretation and enforcement and proceedings pursuant thereto. It is the intent of the parties that the FAA and AAA Rules shall preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Arbitration Agreement or the enforcement thereof, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the state of Texas.Process

If the parties are unable to agree upon an Arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the Arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.Location and Procedure
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based on written submissions. Unless you and Heroly otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in Houston, Texas. Subject to the AAA Rules, the Arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.Arbitrator's Decision

Except as provided above in the DISPUTES AND MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION section, these Terms will be governed by the laws of Texas without regard to choice of law principles.
