4.1. Services Offered

Skopa provides services exclusively through the Platform, which may be modified at our discretion. Skopa operates the Platform that uses an embeddable international payment and transfer solution, which allows you to create and maintain an Account, which, together with the Third-Party Services, allows you to receive, hold, transfer, and spend supported fiat and virtual currencies in accordance with these Terms. As our Services evolve, we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion. In addition, some Services will be subject to the User's account having been duly verified by Skopa. Moreover, the User expressly and irrevocably grants the necessary power and authority to Skopa to buy any digital or crypto currency on his/her behalf using the User’s available credit.

4.2. Account Balance

“USDC” refers to USD Coin, a virtual currency “Stablecoin” issued by Circle Internet Financial, LLC (“Circle”), designed to remain pegged in value to the U.S. Dollar and backed by U.S. Dollar reserves. Circle is not affiliated with Skopa. Skopa may use other Stablecoins that are backed by the US dollar on a 1:1 basis, including but not limited to BUSD, USDC, USDT, GLOUSD OR USDP (the “Designated Stablecoin”). USDC or Stablecoins may be referred to on the Platform as “cash” or using the “$” symbol, but your account balance is denominated in USDC or the Designated Stablecoin. Where necessary due to market conditions affecting one or more Designated Stablecoins, Skopa may adjust the conversion rate used for the Designated Stablecoin conversion.

4.3. Deposits

You can deposit fiat currency, including U.S. Dollars, into your Account through available payment methods, such as bank transfers, debit/credit cards or cash. Skopa reserves the right to add or remove payment methods temporarily or permanently. Your use of these methods is subject to your agreements with the respective partners, not these Terms. Ensure you have the legal right to use your chosen funding method. You authorize us or our partners to debit your Account or linked payment methods for any amounts owed. The name on your linked bank account must match your Account's name. Deposits from third-party bank accounts or informal cash deposits are not accepted, and such deposits will be refunded, less any charges incurred by Skopa. Contact support at contact@skopa.io if this situation arises.

If applicable, when you complete deposits, you are using Third-Party Services to exchange your U.S. Dollars for USDC or the Designated Stablecoin, which will then be credited to your Account balance.

4.5. Withdrawals

The Platform allows you to withdraw USDC from your Account via wire transfer or other transfer methods at Skopa's discretion. In some cases, withdrawals of U.S. dollar balances will be converted to the local currency of the destination country. If this occurs, you will be informed of the exchange rate and relevant fees. Withdrawals are processed within three business days. Timings depend on the chosen option and provider location. Delays due to banking processes are possible. The name on your linked bank account must match your Account's name. Account suspension or closure won't affect service payment or withdrawal requests. Closed Accountholders must register a valid bank account or choose an authorized physical location for fund recovery.

Transactions, once submitted and marked as complete or pending, cannot be canceled, reversed, or changed. If a Transaction fails due to insufficient funds or an error, Skopa may cancel it or debit your other payment methods to cover the amount.
