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

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 If the amount requested to be withdrawn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.

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
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Where the total amount withdrawn by a Driver is less than S$100, a service charge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.
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.
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 email@example.com.
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attract a service charge of $3 if the amount withdrawn is less than $100).
4.1 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
Estatebuzz’s role in providing the Service is purely to administrate and facilitate
payments between Passengers and Drivers. Any disputes between Drivers and Passengers
