For purposes of these Terms, “Synagie Services” means the Synagie products and services and any other features, software, technologies and/or functionalities offered by Synagie and ordered by you through your Account. You may order Synagie Services through your Account (“Synagie Services Orders”). All Synagie Services Orders are deemed incorporated into, and governed by, these Terms. By using the Synagie Services, you acknowledge and agree that Synagie is a provider of online software, third-party warehouse and shipping services. Synagie helps you process your orders, accept shipments from, store (if necessary) and make shipments to, third parties. Synagie is an independent contractor for all purposes. Synagie acts as your agent only with respect to the custody of your merchandise (hereinafter referred to as “Inventory”).
5. ACCOUNT BALANCES AND FEES
5.1 Account Balances. Synagie may set a minimum balance that you must maintain on your Account (“Minimum”). Synagie reserves the right to increase or to decrease the Minimum on your Account immediately upon notice to you. Your Synagie Account must be funded at or above the Minimum in order to receive Synagie Services. The funds that you maintain in your Synagie Account constitute your “Account Balance”. As Synagie Services charges are incurred, Synagie will deduct these from your Account Balance. Synagie reserves the right to request deposits to receive Inventory to cover costs such as receiving costs and enforce minimum Account Balances. If your Account is closed for any reason, Synagie reserves the right to hold the Minimum Balance for up to 120 Days.
5.2 Service Fees. “Service Fees” are the fees for any Synagie Services and any third-party fees (including, but not limited to storage, inbound/outbound, pick & pack, carrier fees, delivery fees, duties, international brokerage charges, freight charges, insurance premiums or other charges given during your use of Synagie Services) ordered through your Account and any special or additional fees assessed against your Account as permitted in these Terms or the Policies. Note that the Service Fees for Synagie Services are billed at the time of usage or to the month in which the Synagie Services are performed. Service Fees are subject to change. If you are on a billing plan, should you change plans during or at the end of any month, your previous pricing plan may no longer be available.
5.3 Estimates. Quotations for Synagie Services and Service Fees are for informational purposes only and are subject to change without notice and shall not under any circumstances be binding upon Synagie. Quotations accepted through Synagie Services’ online interface are estimates based on the information available at the time made. The final rates and service fees may vary based upon the shipment actually tendered, the work actually performed, or a number of factors such as carrier shipping prices, the actual characteristics of your product, the delivery address, and services requested during the normal course of delivery. Synagie reserves the right to bill the Service Fees based on actual charges at any time after the Synagie Services are rendered. Synagie specifically disclaims liability for any shipping rate errors due to inaccurate or incomplete information, such as dimensions and weights.
5.4 Service Fee Disputes. Should you disagree with any Service Fees (other than carrier or third-party fees) charged against your Account, you must submit the dispute to Synagie within 60 days of the fee being charged (“Dispute Period”). Synagie will not review Customer requests for Service Fee adjustments that are received after the Dispute Period. The dispute timing allowed for third-party fees and carrier fees shall be set by the applicable third-party or carrier and such time period may be substantially shorter than the Synagie Dispute Period. If you have a dispute with a third-party fee or carrier fee, please contact Synagie immediately.
5.5 Account Balance Disputes. If Synagie becomes aware of, or is notified of, a dispute relating to your Account Balance, then Synagie will promptly review the dispute. Within 5 business days after the resolution of the dispute, Synagie will credit or debit your Account Balance accordingly, if appropriate.

If your Service Fees remain unpaid for a period greater than 30 days, then Synagie reserves the right, at its sole discretion to reclassify your Account as an “Abandoned Account.” Additionally, any Account that remains unpaid for greater than 60 days will automatically be deemed an Abandoned Account. Upon an Account becoming an Abandoned Account, all rights to ownership of the Account Balance and Inventory would then immediately be forfeited by you. Inventory will become immediately and irrevocably unavailable to you, and liquidation proceedings would begin. You agree the Inventory would be free and clear of liability, and that you would assume any liability therefore. You would have no rights to the liquidation proceeds. You would also remain liable for any pending Service Fees above and beyond the liquidation proceeds.
