BlueX Pay may request Customer to supplement any Application at any time.

- Without in any way limiting Section 2(a), in connection with any individual Cargo Financing Service Request, Customer must submit to BlueX Pay all documents required by BlueX Pay, which in BlueX Pay’s sole discretion allow BlueX Pay to identify the goods which (a) are to be purchased by Customer from Seller and (b) Customer wishes to be financed by BlueX Pay pursuant to these Conditions (the “Goods”). Such documents may include, but shall not be limited to:

- With respect to any Cargo Financing Service Request, BlueX Pay shall be under no obligation to provide any Cargo Financing Services related thereto unless the relevant Seller and BlueX Pay have entered into a trade service agreement (each, a “Trade Agreement”) and such Trade Agreement remains in full force and effect.
With respect to each Cargo Financing Service Request, BlueX Pay shall, based on the Application and such other information BlueX Pay deems reasonable and necessary, determine, in BlueX Pay’s sole discretion, (a) whether to permit Customer to use the Cargo Pay-it-Later Service and (b) any deposit (the “Deposit”) required by BlueX Pay for it to provide any Cargo Pay-It-Later Service to Customer. BlueX Pay may require a Deposit on a per transaction and/or a program basis. BlueX Pay shall inform Customer of any Deposit requirements. All Deposits made to BlueX Pay shall be held in accordance with and subject to the terms of these Conditions. All Deposits shall be made in full and cleared funds. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Conditions, and without prejudice to any other right or remedy it has or may have, BlueX Pay may, without notice to Customer, set-off or recoup from any Deposit amount any liability for which BlueX Pay determines Customer is liable to BlueX Pay, whether such liability is matured or unmatured, is liquidated or unliquidated, or arises under these Conditions.
- After receiving the information from Customer described in Sections 1, 2, 3, BlueX Pay, in its sole discretion, shall with respect to each Cargo Financing Service Request:
- determine the rate to be used to calculate the applicable Handling Fee (as defined below); and
- issue an invoice (“BlueX Invoice”) to Customer setting forth (A) the amount payable under the Seller Invoice (“Seller Invoice Amount”), (B) the Handling Fee (together with the “Seller Invoice Amount”, the “BlueX Invoice Amount”), and (C) based on Customer’s election of payment terms, the date the BlueX Invoice Amount is due (the “Material Due Date”).
- Without in any way limiting any other remedy available to BlueX Pay under these Conditions, the Terms of Service, law, or general principles of equity, Customer shall be charged a handling fee (“Handling Fee”) ranging from one percent (1%) to three percent (3%) of the Seller Invoice Amount per each 30 day period the Seller Invoice Amount remains outstanding, subject to BlueX Pay’s discretion based on the Seller Invoice Amount, the payment terms, the Customer’s credit worthiness, and such other information BlueX Pay deems reasonable and necessary. BlueX Pay shall notify Customer via the Cargo Pay-It-Later Service of the Handling Fee calculation rate to be applied to each Seller Invoice Amount. Customer acknowledges and agrees that such notification is sufficient and expressly agrees to pay the Handling Fee so calculated. Any Handling Fee may be adjusted by BlueX Pay.
- After (a) Customer pays all required Deposits to BlueX Pay and (b) BlueX Pay approves the Application and any specific Cargo Financing Service Request, BlueX Pay, shall, pay the relevant Seller the Seller Invoice Amount in accordance with the terms of the applicable Seller Invoice to the account designated in the Seller Invoice(s) or such other account designated by Seller in writing (the “Seller Designated Account”). BlueX Pay will not be responsible for verifying the Seller Designated Account information nor be liable for any payment made pursuant to Customer’s instructions. BlueX Pay shall fulfill the entirety of its obligations to Customer by making payment to the Seller Designated Account.
- From time to time, Customer may direct BlueX Pay to make payments pursuant to this Section 5 to an account other than the Seller Designated Account (each, a “Seller Alternate Account”). Customer shall be fully liable for the veracity and accuracy of any Seller Alternate Account. BlueX Pay will not be responsible for verifying the Seller Alternate Account information nor be liable for any payment made pursuant to Customer’s instructions. BlueX Pay shall fulfill the entirety of its obligations under this Section 5 by making payment to any Seller Alternate Account. BlueX Pay shall have no obligation to, but may, at its discretion, require Customer to confirm the veracity and accuracy of any Seller Alternate Account via any means BlueX Pay deems reasonable and necessary.
- After BlueX Pay makes payment to Seller pursuant to Section 5 and, title of the Goods for which payment was made has vested in Customer, title of such Goods shall immediately and with no further action on the part of Customer be transferred from Customer to BlueX Pay in consideration of BlueX Pay’s cancellation of the accounts receivable (“Accounts Receivable”) in respect of such Goods as purchased by BlueX Pay from Seller pursuant to the Trade Agreement between BlueX Pay and Seller.
- Upon BlueX Pay obtaining title of any Goods pursuant to Section 6(a), BlueX Pay shall immediately sell the Goods to Customer and Customer agrees to repurchase the same, as evidenced by the BlueX Invoice.
- Customer Lien Rights. Upon BlueX Pay reselling the Goods and transferring the title of the Goods to Customer pursuant to Section 6(b), BlueX Pay shall have a lien on any and all Goods (including any proceeds from the sale of or accounts receivable related to such Goods, the “Lien Property”) in the possession (constructive, in-transit or otherwise), custody, or control of Customer or the related Seller to secure payment of any and all BlueX Invoice Amounts. The subject lien may be asserted against any Lien Property without regard to whether the monies claimed as owed relate to any prior shipment of Goods or Goods currently being shipped. BlueX Pay reserves the right to foreclose and/or satisfy its lien rights by selling any and all Lien Property at public auction or private sale or collecting or selling any accounts receivable, all at the sole discretion of BlueX Pay upon proper and due Notice to Customer, and upon receipt of Notice in accordance with these provisions, Customer will undertake to notify any other parties with a beneficial interest in the subject Lien Property.
- Grant of Security Interest. Upon BlueX Pay reselling the Goods and transferring the title of the Goods to Customer pursuant to Section 6(b), as security for any existing and future indebtedness of Customer to BlueX Pay, including claims for charges, expenses, or advances incurred by BlueX Pay in connection with any shipment or transaction of Customer, and whether or not presently contemplated by Customer, any related Seller, and/or BlueX Pay, Customer hereby grants, assigns, transfers, conveys, pledges, and mortgages to BlueX Pay a first perfected priority security interest/lien in/upon all Goods, documents of title and other property such Customer provides for its customers and clients and for which Cargo Financing Services are extended pursuant hereto (collectively, with proceeds of the foregoing, the “Collateral”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Collateral shall not include any Goods sold for fair market value to a bona fide third-party purchaser. Customer expressly represents and warrants to BlueX Pay that it holds and maintains valid and perfected liens, title, and/or security interests in the Collateral, including any created by way of (as applicable): (a) carrier’s and/or warehouse liens upon the Collateral under Article 7 of the Uniform Commercial Code, U.S. maritime law, and/or other applicable law; (b) consensual security interests in the Collateral under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code or other applicable law; and/or (c) general and continuing liens pursuant to contractual agreements with its customers and/or its tariffs in effect governing the goods and services provided by Customer or Seller to its customers. Customer expressly agrees that it holds the Collateral as bailee for BlueX Pay’s benefit to secure Customer’s obligations under the terms of these Conditions and that BlueX Pay shall have a security interest and a general and continuing lien on any and all Collateral, wheresoever located, in the possession, custody or control of Customer or its agents, for any amounts owed by Customer to BlueX Pay with regard to the shipment on which the lien is claimed, a prior shipment(s) or both, and without regard to the services performed for, or Goods provided by Customer to, its customer. This lien and security interest shall be in addition to any other rights BlueX Pay has or may acquire under other agreements, conventions, tariffs and/or applicable laws, and shall survive delivery or releases of any Collateral. In the event of any failure to fund or in the event of a non-sufficient funds notification or failure to pay any amounts due hereunder, Customer shall notify all parties having an interest in its shipment(s) of BlueX Pay ‘s rights and/or the exercise of such lien. Unless, within thirty (30) days of receiving Notice of BlueX Pay’s intent to exercise such lien, Customer posts cash or letter of credit at sight, or, if the amount due is in dispute, an acceptable bond equal to 110% of the value of the total amount due, in favor of BlueX Pay, guaranteeing payment of the monies owed, plus all charges accrued or to be accrued, BlueX Pay shall have the right to sell such shipment(s) at public or private sale or auction and any net proceeds remaining thereafter shall be refunded to Customer.
- Customer shall take all action that may be necessary or desirable, or that BlueX Pay may request, so as at all times to maintain the validity, perfection, enforceability, and priority of BlueX Pay’s security interest in and lien on the Lien Property and Collateral or to enable BlueX Pay to protect, exercise, or enforce its rights in these Conditions and in the Lien Property and Collateral, including, but not limited to, (a) delivering to BlueX Pay, endorsed, or accompanied by such instruments of assignment as BlueX Pay may specify, and stamping or marking, in such manner as BlueX Pay may specify, any and all chattel paper, instruments, letters of credits, and advices thereof and documents evidencing or forming a part of the Collateral, (b) entering into warehousing, lockbox, and other custodial arrangements satisfactory to BlueX Pay, and (c) executing and delivering financing statements, control agreements, instruments of pledge, mortgages, notices, and assignments, in each case in form and substance satisfactory to BlueX Pay, relating to the creation, validity, perfection, maintenance, or continuation of BlueX Pay’s security interest and lien under the Uniform Commercial Code or other applicable law.
- BlueX Pay is hereby granted power of attorney to execute and file appropriate financing statements or to otherwise effect any other means of perfection of security interests pursuant to applicable law on Customer’s behalf.
- Customer acknowledges that when it elects to use the Cargo Pay-It-Later Service, it may indirectly request BlueX Pay to purchase Goods from a Seller for and on behalf of Customer. Customer expressly acknowledges and agrees that any purchase of Goods from BlueX Pay shall be on an “as is” basis and that BlueX Pay disclaims to the fullest extent of the law any product warranty or guaranty for purchases or sales of Goods acquired from any Seller. Customer hereby agrees to indemnify BlueX Pay for any Claims (as defined in the Terms of Service) with respect to any such purchase or sale of any such Goods.
- Without limiting the generality of Section 8(a):
- BlueX Pay makes no other warranties, express or implied, as to any matter whatsoever, including, without limitation, the design or condition of any Goods, their merchantability, fitness, capacity, or suitability for any particular purpose, the quality of the material or workmanship of any Goods, or conformity of any Goods to the provisions and specifications of any Sale Documents;

- For the avoidance of doubt, any dispute between Customer and any Seller shall not in any way affect any of Customer’s payment obligations to BlueX Pay hereunder.
- Customer specifically represents, warrants, and covenants that (i) it is in compliance and will comply with and (ii) the exercise of BlueX Pay’s rights and the performance by BlueX Pay of its obligations as contemplated by these Conditions shall not result in any violation of, the most current import and export control and sanctions laws, regulations, and orders applicable at the time of any import, export, re-export, transfer or provision of Goods. In particular, Customer shall not, and shall not cause or request BlueX Pay to (a) supply goods, services, or technologies to any natural or legal person, organization, or entity (“Prohibited Party”) that is subject to embargo, sanction, or other similar restrictions, including denied parties status, by any relevant authorities of any applicable jurisdiction (the “Restrictions”), (b) export or re-export any goods, services, or technologies to a banned country or jurisdiction, or one which is subject to Restrictions, without having obtained all necessary authorizations from relevant authorities of all applicable jurisdictions, as the case may require, (c) export or re-export any goods, services, or technologies for the purpose of using them in sectors that are banned or subject to Restrictions, or (iv) export or re-export to, or engage in financial transactions with any Prohibited Party, or any party, organization, or entity with regard to which there is credible reason to believe that they fail to fully comply, or intend not to comply, with the Restrictions.
