Last Updated as of May 2023

These Flexible Payments Retailer Terms and Conditions (“Retailer Terms” or “Agreement”) is a legally binding contract between you as a licensed purchaser of cannabis and any of your Affiliates (collectively, the “Retailer” or “you”) that also participate in the Program (as defined below),  Fusion LLF, LLC d/b/a LeafLink Payments (“LeafLink Payments” or “we”, “us”, or “our”) and Fusion Factor Services LLC (the “Servicer”)  regarding your use of the LeafLink Payments offering (the “Program”). By participating in the Program, you agree to these Retailer Terms, the Terms and Conditions of Use or Master Subscription Agreement, as applicable, Privacy Policy, and all other terms, policies and guidelines applicable to your use of the Program as presented to you when you use our Site and Service. Defined terms used herein will have the same meaning as in the Terms and Conditions of Use or Master Subscription Agreement, as applicable unless otherwise defined herein.


1. The Program.

Under the Program, Retailers can purchase goods (“Merchandise”) from Vendors and obtain the ability to pay for that Merchandise on terms that may be provided to you in your account on the Site or otherwise in writing (the “Payment Terms”). Payment Terms may be provided for the purchase of Merchandise after Retailer has accepted or retained the Merchandise as described below (each, an “Approved Transaction”).

2. Program Requirements.

For all Approved Transactions, the total invoice amount of the Merchandise together with any charges, fees or other amounts that may be applicable or owed to LeafLink Payments (including its Assignees), including but not limited to extension fees and factor fees (the “Obligations”) shall be due and payable to LeafLink Payments (including its Assignees) in accordance with the Payment Terms (such time or day, the “Due Date”). All of the Obligations will be disclosed to you on the Site or otherwise in writing prior to your acceptance of the related Payment Terms.

3. Delivery and Invoices.

The time of shipment or delivery of the Merchandise shall be indicated on the Site or established based on the records of Vendor absent manifest error. Each Vendor will deliver to Retailer an invoice for each Approved Transaction (subject to adjustment as set forth below, each an “Invoice”). Each Invoice delivered by a Vendor to Retailer is expected to be a representation and warranty from Vendor to Retailer that the Merchandise covered thereby are in saleable form and adheres to all applicable local requirements. On the later of the Ship date or Delivery date as indicated on the Site, or upon confirmation of delivery based on the records of Vendor, or on such other day as might be mutually agreed upon by Retailer and Servicer in writing, LeafLink Payments will consider the Merchandise as delivered. In certain cases, you may be required to confirm acceptance of Merchandise on our Site. You will also have the right to reject Merchandise covered by an Invoice and received by you if you notify the corresponding Vendor in accordance with applicable local requirements, and if no such local requirements exist you shall provide notice of any rejection within 1 business day. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a purchase transaction originated at a time when an Event of Default (as defined below) exists under this Agreement shall be deemed not to be an Approved Transaction, unless the Servicer otherwise notifies you of its acceptance of such transaction.

4. Payments.

Each payment made by you for any Merchandise subject to the Payment Terms offered in the Program, or any extensions or modifications thereof, shall indicate the specific Invoice or Invoices being paid, and you acknowledge and agree that you shall not make any payment directly to any Vendor. All payments for Merchandise under the Program shall be made directly to the Servicer on behalf of LeafLink Payments and its Assignee(s), and any payments made direct to a Vendor, instead of to the Servicer, for Merchandise that is subject to the Payment Terms shall not be credited towards payment of any of your Obligations.

5. Direct Debit.

For all Approved Transactions and any amounts owed by Retailer to the Assignee, Retailer hereby irrevocably authorizes the Servicer and its assignees to automatically debit the amount of Obligations from the bank account designated by Retailer for payment (the “Designated Bank Account”), including via ACH transfer, on the Due Date. With consent of the Retailer, the Servicer or its assignees may debit the amount of Obligations prior to the Due Date. Retailer agrees to update its account on the Site with the current bank account information for the Designated Bank Account at all times. Retailer agrees that it shall maintain a sufficient balance in the Designated Bank Account to cover all Obligations. Retailer agrees that it will, from time to time, execute such reasonable and customary documents as may be necessary to enable the Servicer and any assignee to directly debit the Obligations from Retailer’s Designated Bank Account. Retailer agrees to provide LeafLink Payments, the Servicer and any assignee of Vendor with written notice of any change in the above information for Retailer’s Designated Bank Account immediately upon any such change.

6. Events of Default.

You acknowledge that each of the following shall constitute an event of default (each an “Event of Default”) under this Agreement: (a) Retailer fails to make any payment when due, or Retailer fails to maintain a sufficient balance in the Designated Bank Account to satisfy the Obligations as they become due; (b) Retailer fails to comply with or to perform any obligation, covenant or condition in this Agreement and such failure continues for a period of 10 calendar days or more; (c) any statement provided to LeafLink Payments, the Servicer, or the applicable Vendor under this Agreement is false or misleading; or (d) the dissolution or winding down of Retailer, insolvency of Retailer, the appointment of a receiver for any part of Retailer’s property, any assignment for the benefit of creditors, any type of creditor workout, or the commencement of any proceeding under any bankruptcy or insolvency laws by or against Retailer. Retailer authorizes LeafLink Payments, the Servicer or its assigns to file at any time and from time to time such financing statements with respect to the Obligations naming Retailer as Retailer/debtor and LeafLink Payments, the Servicer or its assigns as secured party, as may be required. If an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, you agree that the Servicer is authorized, to the fullest extent permitted by Law, to set off and apply any and all sums held by the Servicer (including, without limitation, any amounts to be paid or funded to you or any of your parent, affiliate or subsidiary entities whether or not yet distributed or funded) against any or all of the Obligations, irrespective of whether or not any demand or notice under this Agreement has occurred. The rights of the Assignee and the Servicer under this section are in addition to any other rights and remedies (including other rights of set off or net settlement) that the Servicer may have against you or any of your parent, affiliate or subsidiary entities.

Additionally, if the Obligations are not paid in full within 15 calendar days of the Due Date, Retailer will be charged a late fee of 5% of all unpaid Obligations in addition to the amount owed. Retailer acknowledges that the late charges payable pursuant to this provision represents a fair and reasonable estimate of the additional expenses the Assignee and/or the Servicer will incur by reason of such late payment and such late charge is not intended to be treated as a penalty. Payments by Retailer shall be first credited to any late fees due, then to any accrued unpaid interest, then to any unpaid collection charges, then to any factor fee owed by the Retailer, if applicable, and any remainder will be credited to the Invoice amount.
