You are solely liable for all fees and costs associated with your Settlement Account.
10.2. Within 10 business days after the end of every Reporting Period Cauri shall transfer the Merchant Payment Account Balance on the end of the Reporting Period (but no more than the current balance less Reserve amount) to your Bank Account, unless you instruct Cauri to transfer the Merchant Payment Account Balance to your Wallet Account with written instruction via the e-mail address expressly designated for the purpose of sending instruction for Settlement under this Agreement, in which case transfer shall be made to your Wallet Account (a “Settlement Payment”).
