The Tappo App
The “Tappo App” refers to the software application and services available through “Tappo” (hereinafter also referred to as ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’), to set up your own e-shop using Tappo’s platform and access Tappo’s payment tools, and market your business. Services may vary.
Tappo is supported by Apple iOS and Android OS devices (specifically, IOS 11 and Android 5.1 or later) .
We are constantly evolving and we may add new features or alter already existing features of our app. Depending on the nature of these, you may have to update your version of Tappo through the App Store or Google play and agree with a refreshed version of our terms & conditions to continue using our services.
Tappo may partner with third parties or providers or suppliers to efficiently provide its services. Tappo will only collaborate with partners, external providers, or suppliers that uphold equivalent to Tappo or stricter information security and privacy policies and procedures and will do so lawfully.
We take reasonable steps to ensure that our providers, partners, and suppliers are reliable prior to entering into a relationship with them. However, they are independent legal bodies and we cannot control and hence be responsible for unfavourable outcomes due to their activity or lack of.
During the verification process, you must only provide information that is true to the best of your knowledge. Failure to provide correct information or complete the identity verification process could mean that Tappo refuses to provide its services to you.

At Tappo we work hard to provide a smooth and seamless platform to those that use our service. Still, this may be disturbed where events beyond our control have intervened. By agreeing to our terms and conditions you acknowledge that we are not responsible for acts or omissions beyond our control, including those for which our suppliers or other external providers are solely responsible.
