Provision of such consent shall be recorded and you are not permitted to utilise the T8 App or the Services (as detailed herein) without continuing to consent to being bound by the Terms. These Terms contain the only legally binding terms between you and T8 regarding the Services and supersedes and replaces, where relevant, all other contracts between you and T8 with respect to the Services. T8 reserves the right to amend these Terms from time to time. We are frequently adding functionality to the T8 App and updating these Terms accordingly. You are encouraged to review these Terms periodically and your continued use of the T8 App and related services represents your agreement to these Terms. You can access and review these Terms at any time on the T8 website. The T8 App is for your personal use and provides you with access to various products and services of Partners. Links to such Partners is for your convenience only and does not constitute a recommendation, endorsement or guarantee in respect of such products and services. The information provided on or via the T8 website and the T8 App is provided for your general information only and should not be used as a substitute for any form of advice. Decisions based on this information are for your own account and are taken at your own risk. It is strongly recommended you obtain professional or specialist advice before transacting. No information on the T8 website and App should be considered as communicating any invitation or inducement to engage in banking, payments, electronic money services, foreign exchange or investment activity.
T8 does not provide any financial advice nor any representation or warranty as to the suitability of any of the products or services of any Partners.

By accepting these Terms, you warrant that your use of the T8 App does not violate any applicable laws or regulations and you shall bear full responsibility for any breach of this section which includes without limitation reference to any Central Bank restriction that may be applicable to you in your country of residence.
Support with Personal Account(s)
T8 will provide support in terms of accessing, using, and obtaining information on your Account. Your Account is a ‘virtual’ account that holds your e-money. It may hold e-money in different currencies at the same time. E-money is an electronic alternative to cash. If you or someone else transfers money to your Account, an equivalent value of e-money in the currency you or the other person chooses will be issued. The storage of this e-money in your Account will be facilitated and other people will accept it as payment through the functionality provided through your Profile. In these terms and conditions, we use ‘money’ to refer to e-money.
Once you have e-money in your Account you will be able to use the Services. For example, through the T8 App you can do the following:
- Send money to and receive money from other User’s e-money accounts.
- Send money to and receive money from external bank and credit and debit card accounts.
- Change money from one currency to another (a “currency exchange”).
The currencies available might change occasionally and will depend upon jurisdiction. New features will be added from time to time and we will send you information about these.
Opening your Account
- Open more than one Account under your name; or
- Open a new Account under your name if T8 has previously closed your Account.
The Account is for personal use only, not for business use. If you use your Account for business
purposes your account may be closed by us.
When your Account is created a unique identifier is created for your Account and allows you to set up
security credentials like a password or facial recognition so that you can access your Account using
your T8 Profile.
T8 will store a copy of your submitted documents, for the purposes of regulatory requirements, and
for storage of Personal Data to understand how such data will be processed and stored by T8.
The User with read-only access will be able to see all balances, transactions and details of the
Account, but your linked bank account or card details will not be shared. This access can be revoked
by you at any time. Giving third party access to an Account does not affect the ownership of the
Account. You are responsible for the people to whom access is given via your Profile, and all actions
will need to comply with the Terms. Account sharing must be discontinued by you or your legal
- The third party has become legally incapacitated, their status for relevant purposes has changed, or they are otherwise no longer able to manage their affairs;
- The third party is convicted of an offence involving fraud, theft, or dishonesty; or
- The User has become legally incapacitated, their status for relevant purposes has changed, or they are otherwise no longer able to manage their affairs.
Note that T8 may require official documentation to act on instruction in
terms of allowing and removing third-party access, including but not limited to Powers of Attorney or
a Certificate of Death. T8 will also conduct AML checks on the third party.
Account Management and Security
There are a number of precautions we strongly recommend you employ to ensure the proper
management and security of your account:
- Regularly change your password.
- Do not share or divulge any login details to another party.
- Never permit passwords or login details to be stored by your computer or in your browser.
- Ensure you log out of the T8 App.
- Keep your devices safe.
- Ensure you are using the latest version of the T8 App and all of your software is up to date.
- Regularly check your transactions history and balances in your account and contact Customer Support immediately in case you have any questions or concerns.
Please contact Customer Support immediately in case of the following events:
- Notice or suspect fraudulent transactions.
- Lost/ stolen/ compromised login details.
- Account used without authorization.
- Anything else you need help with.
You are responsible for all losses relating to unauthorized transactions if you have acted fraudulently or failed, either intentionally or through negligence, to use your T8 Profile in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
We may offer customer balances in multiple currencies. We presently offer EUR. Important terms govern these arrangements and Users should take care to understand and ensure they are satisfied with the conditions put in place by us concerning such matters. User balances in multiple currencies are held on our behalf with licenced banks (“Correspondents”) established in Lithuania or the European Union in safeguarding accounts. Such are segregated from the assets of us. The User bears, in proportion to their share in the assets held with one or more Correspondents, risk of diminution of their balances. That is, the User will be exposed to all the economic and legal consequences that may affect all of the assets held with a Correspondent and where a portion of such assets are lost or no longer available, the User will lose a proportionate share of their balance. Events which may give rise to such loses include but are not limited to those occurring as a result of measures taken by these countries or by other countries, unforeseen events or force majeure events, or any other acts beyond the control of T8, including but not limited to insolvency of a Correspondent.
Supporting Currency Conversion
If you instruct T8 to conduct a currency conversion (exchange) on the T8 app or there is a need to convert the currency of a payment into or out of your Account via our foreign exchange partner named Wise, T8’s fees for assisting with such will be calculated on the basis of independent foreign exchange market data sources and Wise. Note that such rates are changing constantly, so fees and rates may vary based on time of processing. A percentage mark-up may be added if:
- The currency isn’t always easily available (for example, Thai baht); or
- You instruct a conversion outside foreign-exchange-market hours. A conversion will be outside foreign-exchange market hours if it’s between midnight on a Saturday and midnight on a Monday (GMT).
You can see the exchange rates that are applicable on the T8 website. Once the currency is converted, your transaction history associated with your Account will maintain the exchange rate used. You can find more details in the Fees Schedule on our FAQs page(under the “Charges & Customer Services” section). Currency conversion is carried out at your own risk and subject to the terms Wise have agreed to perform the service.
On Platform Payments
You can send money to, and receive money from, other Users’ Accounts. These sorts of payments are called on platform payments or pay to contact. You can make an on platform payment to another User’s Account by choosing them from the contacts list in the T8 App and following the prompts. This is called Pay to Contact. The other User will receive the transfer immediately upon crediting/debiting their account.
It is easy to send money to an external bank account from your Account. You can make a one-off payment, which just involves entering various transaction details including but not limited to the payee’s name, IBAN, address, BIC/SWIFT code and payee bank address (you will be prompted as to which details are required) and follow the prompts. We currently only process external payments in EUR, GBP and HKD. External payments in GBP and HKD will be processed via Wise. You may also be asked for other information to process your payment. You may be deemed responsible for losses incurred where payments are returned in a currency different to the payment currency. If a payment is performed requiring a currency exchange and the payment was executed correctly, when the money is returned to you, it will be converted back to the original currency via Wise. This means that the amount you receive back into your Account might be less (or more) than the payment that you made. When you enter the details of the person you want to pay, you must ensure that the details are correct. If they are not, your payment might be delayed or you might lose your money if it is sent to the wrong account via Wise. Make sure you know the person to whom you are making a payment. If someone approaches you and asks you to make a payment to them, but you are not sure who they are or what the payment is for, you may be a victim of a scam. If the person you want to pay does not receive the money, you may be responsible if the payment is processed correctly but you provided the wrong details. Attempts will be made to recover your funds, if requested by you, but T8 cannot guarantee successful recovery.
It’s important that any payment to your Account is made in the primary currency of your Account, which is currently EUR. Otherwise, the payment will be converted to the currency of your Account, which is currently EUR. This means that your Account might be credited with less than you expected. You will be responsible for any losses if this happens. It is important you review and understand the terms agreed with in this respect. Off platform inbound payments could take up to seven days to be credited to your Account.
Receiving Payments from other Customers of the T8 App

Sometimes limits are applied to how much you can receive into or pay from your Account. The value of currency exchange you can carry out at any one time or over a period of time may also be limited. These limits can change from time to time. The current limit for an Instant Top- Up with your debit or credit card is EUR 5,000.00. The minimum top-up for an Instant Top-Up with your debit or credit card is EUR 10.00.
Add Money – Instant Transfer
You can add money to your account instantly using a debit card or credit card linked to your Account in the Instant Top-up feature of the T8 app. If you use a debit/credit card that is in one currency to add money to your account in another currency, your bank or card provider may charge a fee.

Account Support Features
Savings Account & Savings Goals
Using your Profile via the My Savings Goals feature of the T8 app, you can set up savings Accounts with associated savings goals. Users can transfer funds in or out of these Accounts freely from their general purpose Account via the Account Provider. The Savings Goal also allows you to set a target savings goal where the target amount and desired date for achieving the goal can be set by you. You can then set up a recurring payment to the Savings Account to enable you to achieve this goal. Savings Accounts do not pay interest. Users should not expect any interest payments on Accounts supported by T8 on that basis.
Fees and Charges
Please refer to our website for detail of fees on the Accounts and associated charging methods. Please note that our charges relate only to our Services.
T8 will facilitate the closure of an Account if requested by you or if there is a determination that there has been a breach of these Terms as the duration of this agreement is ongoing while you use the T8 App and not defined by a particular time period. Thus, termination can happen at any time by you or, us on providing notice to the other party. You can close your Profile, and so end this agreement, at any time by providing notice of your intention to terminate by contacting Customer Support. After receiving a notice of termination from you, you will be advised of the date of termination by way of email to your nominated email account. Upon providing T8 with notice of termination we will prompt returning your funds to you after any outstanding charges and ceasing to provide the Services to you. You will still have to pay any charges outstanding on your Account and those associated with the Services. You may also be charged any cancellation fees that apply to other agreements you have entered into as part of this arrangement (for example, if you cancel a monthly subscription).When you advise that you want to close your Profile and your Account, we will ensure you will have the opportunity to withdraw the money held for you (this is called redemption). Your money will be sent after deducing any applicable fees due and owing to us in the currency of your main account, which is EUR, to an external destination account of your choosing.
Where there is a need to convert currency during this redemption the rate applicable at the time will likely be used by us and Wise and the usual fees applied. However, if there are any additional withdrawals, fees or charges that have been incurred on your Account following the processing of the redemption request, your Account will remain active and your agreement will continue to apply until there is no money outstanding on your Account. Should you not repay this amount, all steps necessary, including legal action, will be taken to recover any monies outstanding.
How do I get access to my money and data after my account has closed?
After your account is closed you can contact us for up to six years after closure to ensure that any money held for you is returned. For six years after your account has closed you will be able to contact Customer Support and request copies of records held.
