3. HOW THE SERVICE WORKS

3.1 Ride Cost

The Ride Cost is fixed at a flat rate of S$4.60 per Passenger per carpool ride. The Ride Cost is inclusive of all ERP and other charges which are incurred for a carpool ride.

The Ride Cost is subject to change from time to time by Estatebuzz at its sole discretion. Users will be given at least two months’ notice of any change in the Ride Cost sent by way of an email to their email address registered with Estatebuzz.

3.2 Billing of Passengers

Drivers will bill Passengers for their share of the Ride Cost. They can do so after every trip or after a number of trips. Drivers will bill Passengers according to the number of trips taken, and the Ride Cost (which is the number of trips x $4.60) and Commission will be automatically calculated by the Payment System.

3.3 Payment by Passengers

The Passenger can log into the Payment System to make payment to the Driver at any time.

Payment to Driver is through the deduction of the value in the Passenger’s Account Balance. If the Passenger does not have enough value in his Account Balance, he can purchase top ups of various amounts, subject to a minimum of $25.

Passengers may make a request to withdraw amounts from their Account Balance if they do not plan to make any more carpool trips. If the amount requested to be withdrawn is less than $100, a service charge of $3 will apply.

Estatebuzz may at its discretion issue reminders to Passengers who fail to make payment.

Users acknowledge that the basis of carpooling arrangements made through the Website is the sharing of car rides and the cost of such rides between friends. As such, all payment issues shall be settled between Drivers and Passengers and Estatebuzz will take no further action (apart from sending out reminders as aforesaid in its discretion) where Passengers do not make payment.

3.4 Payment to Drivers

Drivers will receive payment from Passengers through a credit into their Account Balance.

Drivers may request for a withdrawal at any time by clicking on the “Withdraw” button on the Account Balance page. Once such as request has been made, Estatebuzz will credit the requested withdrawal amount to the Driver into the Driver’s bank account on the 15th of the following month.

Where the total amount withdrawn by a Driver is less than S$100, a service charge of $3 will be applied.

3.5 Commission

The Ride Cost includes a Commission of 7.8% that Estatebuzz charges Drivers for the use of the Payment Administration Service. The Commission will be charged immediately upon collection of payment from Passengers.

3.6 Refunds

After a Passenger has topped up the Account Balance and the Passenger decides not to use any Carpool services, the Passenger may request for a full refund within two months of the Account Balance top up by sending an email to sales@sharetransport.sg. After the two months period, all refunds will be treated as withdrawals (which will attract a service charge of $3 if the amount withdrawn is less than $100).

4. DISPUTES

4.1 Driver’s Notification taken as Conclusive

Where a Driver has logged into the Payment Administration page of the Website and charged a Passenger(s) for a carpool ride, Estatebuzz will take it as conclusive that the Passenger(s) has taken the carpool ride and process charges accordingly. If a Passenger disputes taking a carpool ride from a Driver, the Passenger is to take this up with the Driver personally. Once the disputes are settled, the Driver may amend his charges and Estatebuzz will process the new amounts.

4.2 Disputes as to Rides or Payment
