3. Payment Transaction Processing
The Service facilitates the processing of Payment Transactions required to complete a payment for a purchase between a Buyer and a Seller. The Service will store information from Buyers, such as their shipping information, and will process Payment Transactions on behalf of Sellers through the appropriate bank network. WU Pay may delay payment processing of suspicious transactions or halt transactions which may involve fraud, misconduct, or violate applicable law, this Agreement, or other applicable WU Pay or Service policies, as determined at WU Pay's sole and absolute discretion.
You acknowledge and agree that the purchases of Products are transactions between you and the Seller, and not with WU Pay.

4. Permissible Transactions
You may only use the Service to process a Payment Transaction for a Product that is purchased from a Seller through a legitimate, bona fide sale of the Product.

The Service may not be used to receive cash advances from Sellers or to facilitate the purchase of cash equivalents (traveler's checks, prepaid cards, money orders, etc.). You may not use the Service to process Payment Transactions in connection with the sale or exchange of any illegal goods or services or any other underlying illegal transaction.

We may limit or suspend your use of the Service at any time, at our sole and absolute discretion. If we suspend your use of the Service, we will attempt to notify you by electronic mail.
