All Charges are due immediately and payment will be facilitated by Dako using the preferred payment method designated in your Account, after which Dako will send you a receipt by email. If your primary Account payment method is determined to be expired, invalid or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that Dako may, as the Third Party Provider’s limited payment collection agent, use a secondary payment method in your Account, if available.

This payment structure is intended to fully compensate the Third Party Provider for the services or goods provided. Except with respect to taxicab transportation services requested through the Application, Dako does not designate any portion of your payment as a tip or gratuity to the Third Party Provider. Any representation by Dako (on Dako’s website, in the Application, or in Dako’s marketing materials) to the effect that tipping is “voluntary,” “not required,” and/or “included” in the payments you make for services or goods provided is not intended to suggest that Dako provides any additional amounts, beyond those described above, to the Third Party Provider. You understand and agree that, while you are free to provide additional payment as a gratuity to any Third Party Provider who provides you with services or goods obtained through the Service, you are under no obligation to do so. Gratuities are voluntary. After you have received services or goods obtained through the Service, you will have the opportunity to rate your experience and leave additional feedback about your Third Party Provider. The Passenger or Customer may choose to pay for the Service by cash and where available, by pre-purchased credits (“Dako Credits”) provided that in the event the payment is made vide Dako Credits, the Company shall reimburse to you the portion of the said payment that is due to you as per these Terms and Conditions. Any complaints that the Passenger or Customer shall have regarding the transportation provided by you shall be taken up by the Passenger or Customer with you directly.
