Payment Terms and Rivian Wallet
All your payment methods securely stored in one place
These supplemental Payment Terms apply to the payment features of the Rivian Site and Rivian App, which allow you to make purchases and pay for goods or services through your stored Payment Methods (the “Wallet”). The Wallet is maintained and operated by Rivian and its third-party payment service providers (collectively, “Rivian”). By using the Wallet, you accept the Rivian General Terms and Conditions (the “Rivian Terms”) and these Payment Terms. Please read each of these documents carefully. Together, these documents establish what you can expect from us and what we expect from you as you use our services. Any capitalized words used but not defined in these Payment Terms have the definition given to them in the Rivian Terms.
By using the Wallet you:
agree to be bound by the Rivian Terms and these Payment Terms;
represent that you are 18 years of age or older and capable of entering into a legally binding agreement; and
authorize Rivian to verify the validity of your Payment Methods (see below) and to process and transmit your Payment Method information to facilitate transactions as described below.
We may modify the Payment Terms or any related policy or guideline pertaining to the Wallet at any time. We will alert you through the Rivian App, Rivian Site, and/or by the email you provide to us of any material changes to the Payment Terms. Modifications will be effective immediately upon being posted on the Rivian App and/or Rivian Site or as otherwise indicated, and your continued use of the Wallet indicates your acceptance of the modified Payment Terms. If you do not agree to the Payment Terms or any modifications to the Payment Terms or Wallet, your only option is to stop accessing and using the Wallet.
The Wallet may be updated, suspended, modified or discontinued at any time without any notice or obligation to you. The Wallet may not be available during maintenance breaks and at other times.
a. Account Registration
You authorize Rivian to confirm that your Payment Method is valid, including by submitting a payment authorization request or a low dollar authorization credit and/or debit, in accordance with the relevant rules of that Payment Method, such as the network rules of Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover (“Network”). If we submit a low dollar authorization for your credit or debit card, your card is not actually being charged, and any temporary charge shown on your account will disappear in a few days.
You agree the Wallet is for your personal use and you will only use your Payment Methods in the Wallet. If You are using a corporate card, you represent that you have authorization to use such card for any payments submitted to Rivian and that such payments are business payments and not personal transactions.
To protect your Wallet, keep your password confidential and do not share your account details with anyone else. You agree that you assume responsibility for all charges made through your Wallet.
b. How Payments Work / Our Role
The Wallet lets you make payments using your stored Payment Method for goods and services offered by Rivian or certain third-party merchants (collectively, “Merchants”).
You acknowledge and agree that when you make a purchase from a Merchant using the Wallet (“Transactions”), the Transaction is solely between you and the Merchant, which may or may not be Rivian, as specified for each Transaction. You authorize our third-party payment service providers, including Stripe, Inc. and its affiliates, to collect, analyze, and relay information generated in connection with Transactions. Transactions are subject to the terms and conditions governing your Payment Method and to any agreements between you and your financial institution. We are not party to the user agreements of the issuer of your Payment Method or your financial institution. Nothing in these Payment Terms modifies any such terms governing your relationship with the issuer of your Payment Method or with your financial institution. In the event of inconsistency between these Payment Terms and the terms of the issuer of your Payment Method or the terms of your financial institution, these Payment terms will govern the relationship between you and Rivian with respect to the Wallet, and the terms of your issuer of your Payment Method or your financial institution will govern the relationship between you and such issuer or financial institution.
When you initiate a Transaction, the Wallet will present your Payment Methods to you at the time of the transaction. After you select the Payment Method you would like to use, we may charge that Payment Method, or may share the Payment Method and related details with the Merchant or one of our third-party payment service providers, which will then process the transaction. You authorize the charge or debit to your Payment Method as necessary to complete processing of a Transaction. You also authorize any crediting to your Payment Method in connection with reversals, refunds or adjustments related to a Transaction. You agree that a Merchant may resubmit a Transaction for processing one or more times in the event the Transaction is declined or returned.
c. Supported Payment Methods
Eligible Payment Methods are subject to change at any time. Credit cards or debit cards are eligible Payment Methods for all transactions except vehicle sales. For vehicle sales transactions, ACH, wire transfer, or check are the available options.
d. Recurring Payments
If a Merchant offers you the ability to use the Wallet to make recurring payments on a monthly or other periodic basis, such as a subscription (“Recurring Payments”), you authorize the Merchant to charge your selected Payment Method on the specified schedule. The Transaction amount may be subject to change by the Merchant during a recurring payment period.
If your Payment Method is a credit or debit card and the details of your card information change, the issuer of your card may provide the Merchant with updated details that the Merchant may use to charge amounts you owe.
If your Payment Method is declined, you must provide a new eligible Payment Method promptly or services may be placed on hold with benefits suspended. If you provide a new eligible Payment Method and are successfully charged, benefits and services will be reactivated.
Unless otherwise stated, your Recurring Payments and the relevant billing authorization will continue indefinitely until you cancel. Unless you notify the Merchant before a recurring charge that you want to cancel, you understand your Payment Method will continue to be charged and you authorize the Merchant to charge your Payment Method to collect applicable fees. In the event of a conflict between the terms and conditions you agree to for your recurring purchase and these Payment Terms, the terms and conditions you agree to for your recurring purchase will govern. You may cancel Recurring Payments by contacting Rivian customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1-888-RIVIAN1. If you cancel Recurring Payments and do not otherwise provide or arrange payment for a particular product and/or service, you acknowledge and understand that you will no longer obtain, be able to access, or have rights in the products and/or services associated with the canceled Recurring Payments. If you cancel Recurring Payments and do not arrange an alternative means of payment, you will continue to receive the product/service during any period for which you have paid-in-full.
e. Transaction History
When you make a payment using the Wallet, we will update your activity on the Rivian Site or Rivian App where you utilized the Wallet and provide you a Transaction confirmation. In some instances, the Transaction confirmation may serve as your receipt and the Transaction also will appear on your card or account statement. Except as otherwise required by law or by the terms of another agreement between you and us, you are solely responsible for (a) compiling and retaining permanent records of all Transactions and other data associated with your use of the Wallet, and (b) reconciling all transaction information associated with the Wallet. If you believe that there is an error or unauthorized Transaction activity, you agree to contact us immediately at email@example.com.
f. Cancelation; Refunds
Except as otherwise set forth in these Payment Terms, all Transactions are non-refundable and non-reversible. You may have additional refund or charge-back rights based on a Merchant’s policies, or under your agreements with your Payment Method issuer or your financial institution, or applicable state and federal laws. You should review your periodic statement received from your Payment Method issuer and/or financial institution to verify your Transactions.
g. Customer Experience
We provide customer service for issues relating to how the Wallet works. For other issues – like pricing of goods and services, order fulfillment and cancellation, returns and refunds, product functionality or technical support, contact the appropriate Merchant. For issues related to your Payment Method, contact the issuer of your Payment Method or your financial institution.
