  • Wildcard SSL certificate.
  • Certificate chain and Certificate key for the domain.
  • SES credentials for sending emails or SMTP credentials.
  • Private VPS ID and owner ID.
  • PostgreSQL credentials (Host, login, password).
  • MongoDB credentials (Host, login, password).
  • List of planned currencies to be used, if applicable.
  • SNS credentials for sending SMS, if applicable.

6.2. The Licensee acknowledges and agrees to provide the aforementioned information to the Company before the start of the Software setup process.

6.4. Environments:

6.4.1. Infrastructure Vendors:

By default, the Company sets up the back-end functionality of the Platform and back-office on Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure. Other infrastructure vendors can be used for setup and further maintenance by mutual agreement. The application server setup is handled by the Company’s specialists within the Company’s AWS account or the Company’s account with another vendor for all instances.The Licensee is obligated to use the AWS infrastructure under their own account for databases and front-end interfaces if no other infrastructure has been agreed upon with the Company.

6.4.2. Software Setup:

After this Agreement is signed and the setup fee is paid, the Company’s specialists will assist the Licensee with the environment setup procedures. For this, the Company provides the Licensee with two instances that are similar in functionality: Development Environment (DEV) and Production Environment (LIVE).

  • The Development Environment (DEV) is a separate environment in the SPTP infrastructure dedicated to the development of new features, and to test everything before migrating to the Production Environment (LIVE). DEV simulates real-world conditions and interactions and processes test transactions only, allowing developers and testers to assess the functionality, performance, compatibility, and reliability of software modifications without impacting live operations.
  • The Production Environment (LIVE) is a separate environment in the SPTP infrastructure dedicated to the deployment of the stable production version of the SPTP, available for end customers and processing real transactions by the Licensee’s real customers.

6.5. Databases:

6.5.1. Please note that all the information related to any transactions run by the Licensee within the Licensee’s project remains on the Licensee’s databases on the Licensee’s servers. The Company does not collect, store, or process any information related to such transactions. The Software (back-end APIs) automatically transmits such information to the databases. The Licensee should always be solely responsible for the security of the databases. Databases are managed solely by the Licensee.

6.5.2. Database Setup:

  • The Licensee deploys the databases on the Licensee’s infrastructure, configures a security access list, and provides credentials for accessing databases from the SPTP software side. The first step is to set up the Development Environment (DEV) following the Company’s instructions available at https://sdk.finance/knowledge-base/aws-database-setup/.
  • In case the Licensee does not have a development team, the Development Environment (DEV) database setup can be handled by the Company’s specialists within the Licensee’s AWS account after provisioning administrator permissions. The maintenance and security of the databases remain the responsibility of the Licensee.
  1. SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE

7.1. Support and SLA:

The Company provides support within its regular business hours: Monday to Friday, 9 am to 6 pm EET. If required by the Licensee, calls with the Company’s representatives can be scheduled no earlier than one (1) business day in advance. To provide the Licensee with all the necessary information about how to use the Software, the Company has prepared a Knowledge Base available at: https://sdk.finance/knowledge-base/. If the Licensee has questions not covered by the Knowledge Base, these questions should be addressed to the Company’s representative, and the Company will respond within a reasonable time.

7.2. Parties agree and confirm that the Company’s technical support obligations are limited to issues directly related to the Software’s functionality, features, and configuration. The Company does not guarantee that all technical issues can be resolved or that the Software will be error-free. However, the Company will make commercially reasonable efforts to resolve reported issues within a reasonable timeframe and provide updates to the Licensee regarding the status of the resolution process.

7.3. Technical support does not cover training the Licensee’s personnel or providing professional services beyond the scope of this Agreement. The Company may offer separate training or consulting services, subject to a separate agreement and applicable fees.

7.4. Software Defects:

In the event any defects within the Software are discovered, the following procedure shall apply

  • The defect must be reported to the Company.
  • The defect is checked by the Company.
  • If the defect is confirmed by the Company, it is passed to the Company’s development team.
  • The defect is investigated and fixed by the Company’s development team.
  • The fix is applied as a separate patch or within the scope of the new Software version to the

Development Environment (DEV).

  • The fix is checked and confirmed by the Licensee.
  • Once the fix is confirmed by the Licensee, it is applied to the Production Environment (LIVE).

7.5. Software Feature and New Integrations Development:

If there is any functionality (either internal functionality or any new integration) that is not covered by the Software but is required by the Licensee’s project, the Licensee has two options:

  • Develop the new functionality on the Licensee’s application side using APIs of the Platform, which is possible in many cases. For example, for the integration of a new vendor, the Licensee can use these APIs: https://sdk.finance/knowledge-base/use-case-api-flows/. Any functionality developed by the Licensee must be tested on the Development Environment (DEV) before deployment to the Production Environment (LIVE). Any erroneous transactions performed on the Production Environment (LIVE) caused by the Licensee’s functionality are considered valid and subject to payment.
  • Request the Company to develop it, with the understanding that the Company has the right to reject or postpone any new feature development without providing reasons.

If the Company commits to developing a new feature, the implementation can be done:

  • Free of charge for the Licensee, and this feature will become part of the Platform and available to all other Licensees of the Company.
  • For an implementation fee (subject to a separate agreement and invoice), in which case this feature will be exclusively deployed on the infrastructure of the Licensee only.

  1. SUBSCRIPTION POLICY. SOFTWARE COMPONENT 1.

3.1. This section specifies the subscription policy and fees for the Software component 1:

  • Back-end: The Company shall deliver the back-end functionality of the Platform in the format of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

3.2. Before using the Software Component 1, the Licensee is required to pay a non-refundable one-time setup fee of $2,500 (two thousand five hundred US dollars). The setup fee covers the cost of Software setup for the Licensee.

3.3. In addition to the setup fee specified above, the Licensee is required to pay a monthly subscription fee. The monthly subscription fee differs for Development Mode and Live Mode:

3.3.1. Starting from the first day after the software setup for the Licensee is completed, the Licensee’s project enters Development Mode. The Licensee shall pay a fixed monthly subscription fee of $900 (nine hundred US dollars) during the Development Mode.

3.3.2. Development Mode cannot extend beyond 6 (six) months. At the end of this period, the Company has the right to charge the Licensee based on the pricing of LIVE Mode..

3.3.3. Starting from the first day after the Licensee’s project goes live in LIVE Mode, the Licensee shall payfor the number of successful transactions processed through the Software. If the number of successful transactions ranges from 0 to 25,000, a minimum monthly subscription fee of $2,500 (two thousand five hundred US dollars) applies. For clarity, one (1) successful transaction means a successfully performed action by means of the Software, such as placing, transferring, or withdrawing funds that achieved its intended result. For example, a successfully completed transfer of money from one account to another will be considered one (1) transaction. A detailed breakdown of the monthly subscription fee per transaction and

examples of its calculation are provided below. As the transaction volume increases, the Company’s price per transaction decreases once the Licensee reaches specific milestones.

transactions/month cost per transaction

0+ minimum monthly fee

25,000+ $0.1

35,000+ $0.09

45,000+ $0.08

55,000+ $0.07

75,000+ $0.06

100,000+ $0.05

250,000+ $0.03

500,000+ $0.02

1,000,000+ $0.01

5,000,000+ $0.005

10,000,000+ $0.001

100,000,000+ $0.0005

250,000,000+ $0.0001

500,000,000+ $0.00005

So, for up to 35,000 transactions per month, Licensee will be charged $0.1 per transaction with a minimum sum to be paid – $2,500/month. However, transactions above 35,000 per month will cost cheaper – $0.09. The next milestone is 45,000 transactions a month, and the price is $0.08 per transaction. And the next one – 55,000 transactions a month, and the price is $0.07 per transaction, etc.

3.3.4. Examples of calculation

For example, if Licensee did 101,000 transactions in a specific month, the factual price breakdown would be:

35,000*$0.1 + 10,000*$0.09 + 10,000*$0.08 + 20,000*$0.07 + 25,000*$0.06 + 1,000*$0.05 = $3,500 + $900 + $800 + $1,400 + $1,500 + $50 = $8,150

So, the first 100,000 transactions cost you $8,100 and the last 1,000 – just $50.

Here is another example.

If Licensee did 400,000 transactions that month, the price breakdown would be:

First 100,000 cost you $8,100 (as we know from the example above) + 150,000*$0.05 + 150,000*$0.03 = $8,100 + $7,500 + $4,500 = $20,100.

  1. SUBSCRIPTION POLICY. SOFTWARE COMPONENT 2.

4.1. This section specifies the subscription policy and fees for the Software component 2:

  • Back-office interface for system management, which is built on top of the back-end APIs.

4.2. Before using the Software Component 2, the Licensee is required to pay a non-refundable one-time setup fee of $500 (five hundred US dollars). The setup fee covers the basic customisation of the Software for the Licensee.

4.3. In addition to the setup fee specified above, the Licensee is required to pay a monthly subscription fee. The monthly subscription fee differs for Development Mode and Live Mode:

  • Development Mode – $100/month.
  • Live Mode – $500/month and does not depend on the number of transactions.

4.4. The cost of this subscription fee is in addition to the subscription fee specified in Section 3 above and will not be added if the Licensee has chosen only Software component 1.

  1. SUBSCRIPTION CANCELLATION

5.1. The Company shall cancel the Licensee’s subscription if the Licensee fails to make payment of the monthly invoice and the switch-on fee within 60 (sixty) calendar days of the monthly invoice date.

5.2. The Company may also cancel the Licensee’s subscription at any time if any of the following conditions

are met:

– if the Licensee does not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide the Company with

information that is necessary for the Company to provide the Software or related services; or

– if the Company suspects that the Licensee’s subscription purchase was fraudulently made or the Licensee’s account was fraudulently set up.

5.3. In the event that the Company cancels the Licensee’s subscription due to non-payment of fees or charges as specified in this Agreement, such subscription cancellation shall not constitute termination of the Agreement. Notwithstanding the subscription cancellation, the Licensee shall remain liable for any overdue payments or outstanding fees accrued up to the date of subscription cancellation. The Company reserves the right to pursue legal remedies to recover any outstanding amounts owed by the Licensee.

5.4. Subscription Cancellation by Licensee: The Licensee may cancel the subscription at any time by sending a subscription cancellation request to support@sdk.finance. If the Licensee cancels the subscription, it will not be renewed after the then-current subscription term expires. Subscription cancellation requests must be received by the Company at least 5 (five) business days prior to the end of the then-current paid subscription term. Subscription cancellation requests received after this deadline will take effect the following month.
