5.1 All entry fees for Prize Competitions will be collected by Spond via the Service and will appear to Entrants bank statements as being paid to Spond. Entry fees will be processed in accordance with terms supplied by Spond’s payment providers, which include, but are not limited to, Checkout, Stripe, Visa, Electron, Maestro and Mastercard Debit Cards, PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay.
5.2 Spond will pay the Campaigner a fee (the “Campaigner Fee”) based on a share of the net proceeds (the “Net Income”) attributable to the promotion of a specific Prize Competition.
