Terms and Conditions of Use
SimplyCredit is founded on the principle of treating our customers fairly and transparently. We want to do right by you whenever we can, which requires both of us behaving responsibly and in good faith, as outlined in this document.
By using SimplyCredit you agree to all the terms below.
Eligibility and Privacy
The products and services offered through this Site are not available to persons under the age of 18 or to persons who are not legal residents of the United States.
You need to be 18 or older and a legal resident of the United States to use this site.
This Site allows users to enroll credit cards and department store cards (collectively, “Cards”) for us to pay. Subject to the Payment Conditions, we will pay the balances of your Cards, in part or in full (and as such balances change as you use of your Cards), with funds taken from (i) a personal revolving line of credit that we establish for your benefit at a third party financial institution; (ii) a personal revolving line of credit we issue you (either of (i) or (ii), a “Revolving Line”); or (iii) a personal checking account that you associate with your account on this Site (a “Checking Account”). Between you and us, the maximum amount of any Revolving Line shall be established and may changed at our sole discretion. We will make payments to Card issuers prior to their payment due date, as described by the following terms (the “Payment Conditions”):
- We shall always have the sole discretion of determining whether or not any user is allowed to use this Site in any way;
- You must provide us with accurate and correct information needed to determine the payment due date of your Card;
- Such payment shall be made following any additional instructions you specify (and we accept) within the parameters of this Site;
- Your Revolving Line may not at any time be past due during the associated payment period; and
- You must have sufficient funds available in your Checking Account during each associated payment period.
We will be responsible for the payment or removal of any late fees and finance charges resulting from a missed or late payment if such payment is missed or late as a result of our fault and subject to the Payment Conditions.
Any payment recommendations we make are based on the information provided by you. It is your responsibility to provide accurate information to us and we will not be liable to any fees or penalties charged by your credit card issuer if our recommendations resulted in an underpayment to the credit card issuer. Our recommendation algorithm considers factors that are generally used by credit scoring algorithms but is not designed to specifically improve your FICO or Vantage Scores. We are not a credit repair organization and do not guarantee any credit score improvement through the use of our Service.
You agree that you will abide by the disclosed terms associated with any Revolving Line that is established for you (collectively, the “Credit Agreement”). Furthermore, you agree that it is your responsibility to make timely payments to us as described in the Credit Agreement and the monthly statements that we issue you. Such payments will be made electronically through this Site every month, according to the payment settings you specify (and that we accept) within the parameters of this Site.
We may use third party providers that help us either with the payment process or with obtaining account information we need for managing your enrolled Cards. Third party bill pay providers will be used to perform ACH transfer of funds on your behalf. You agree to allow third party bill pay providers the right to request, direct, and undertake all actions relating to your Checking Accounts and Card accounts to perform services we offer with this Site. Specifically, Bank services are provided by Evolve Bank, Member FDIC, through our banking software provider SynapseFI, and their terms are incorporated here by reference. To report a complaint relating to the bank services, email firstname.lastname@example.org. You agree to maintain a Checking Account in good standing and with sufficient funds to cover any payment you may make in connection with this Site. Although we may monitor your Checking Account and will notify you of upcoming payments and certain payment details, in the event you do not have sufficient funds for bill pay providers to execute the transfer of funds, you will be responsible for any costs or fees incurred. You also authorize third party account aggregators to provide us with account information for your enrolled Cards that is needed or helpful to make payments to Card issuer. If we are unable to obtain such information about your Cards from a third party service provider, we may require you to provide such information to us directly through this Site. By using this Site, you agree to provide, and continuously provide, third party account aggregators with all permissions and consents necessary or helpful to perform services on your behalf.
Our service provides you with a new revolving line of credit that is used to pay your
cards. Sometimes we may use your checking acocunt to pay your cards;
We will be good citizens and do our part but you need to do yours by making sure your account is in good standing with sufficient funds. Without this we cannot provide our service;
We can't do everything on our own so we will sometimes partner with third party service providers to carry out some of the tasks;
Sometimes we need to get permissions from you before we can do certain tasks. If you want to benefit from our service, you should give us those permissions.
Credit Report Consent
When you register for an account with us, you understand and agree that you are providing written instructions in accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act and other applicable law for SimplyCredit to obtain consumer reports and related information about you from consumer reporting agencies at any time as long as you have an active SimplyCredit account.
You authorize us to retain a copy of all such information so we can analyze them and make payment recommendations for you.
You are giving us permission to pull your credit report so we can provide payment recommendations to you.
Our goal is to provide you with a fair and transparent financial product. To that end, any Revolving Lines we issue will calculate interest charges based on a simple interest calculation, as opposed to compound interest. We’ll give you the specific terms when a Revolving Line is established and as part of the Credit Agreement.
If a Revolving Line is issued by a third party partner financial institution, interest charges may not always be based on a simple interest calculation. In such cases, provided payments to the Revolving Line are always paid on time, you will be responsible only for interest charges calculated under our simple interest method and we will pay any differences in interest charges to the third party financial institution. If payments associated with such Revolving Line are not paid on time, the interest charges of the third party financial institution will apply, as set forth in the Credit Agreement.
We want to eliminate compound interest. Even if our financial partners insist on it, you will only pay the simple interest portion of the interest charges while we cover any difference on your behalf. But if you fail to make timely payments to us, we will not be able to honor this deal.
