b. No Additional Amounts. Vendor/Store acknowledges and agrees that, through advertising and marketing, Thirsty John’s may seek to attract new Vendor/Stores to Thirsty John’s and to increase existing users of the Thirsty John’s Services and Thirsty John’s App. Vendor/Store acknowledges and agrees such advertising or marketing does not entitle Vendor/Store to any additional monetary amounts beyond the amounts expressly stated in this Agreement.

c. Vendor/Store Promotional Offers. Thirsty John’s may authorize Vendor/Store to use certain automated tools that allow Vendor/Store to provide promotional Offers to Customers through the Thirsty John’s App per the terms of this Agreement.

i. Vendor/Store Promotional Offers. Subject to this Agreement and any other guidelines or eligibility criteria for Offers that Thirsty John’s may make available from time to time, Thirsty John’s hereby authorizes Vendor/Store to use Thirsty John’s proprietary, automated tools ("Offer Tools") to create and provide Offers to Customers.

v. Service Fees. For Items where an Offer has been applied as a discount to the Retail Price of the Item, Thirsty John’s will charge Vendor/Store a Service Fee based on the discounted Retail Price and not the full Retail Price. If Vendor/Store's Offer consists of a discount on delivery, the Service Fee will be calculated as described in the Agreement and will not change. Vendor/Store agrees that Vendor/Store is solely responsible for Offer Costs and that Thirsty John’s may deduct Offer Costs from Vendor/Store's Item Revenue. If Vendor/Store is paid for an Item, it is responsible for the Service Fee and relevant Offer Costs.

vi. Modification, Suspension, Discontinuation. Thirsty John’s reserves the right, at any time, temporarily or permanently, in whole or in part, to modify, suspend or discontinue the Offer Tools or the ability for Vendor/Store to provide Offers.

SPECIFIC SUPPLEMENTAL TERMS STORE DIRECT METHOD

The following Specific Supplemental Terms govern the use of the Store Direct Method and the general availability of Items via the Thirsty John’s App delivered to Customers on behalf of Vendor/Store by Store Direct Delivery Partners ("Store Direct Items"). All undefined, capitalized terms will have the meaning outlined in the Order Form, the Definitions or the General Supplemental Terms.

1. Store Direct Items/Order.

Upon Vendor/Store agreeing to the Order Form, Definitions, General Supplemental Terms and Specific Supplemental Terms governing the Store Direct Method, and contingent upon completion of any additional verification steps, the Thirsty John’s Tools will be made available to Vendor/Store to access and request on-demand delivery services provided by Store Direct Delivery Partners. Neither Thirsty John’s nor its Affiliates provide any delivery services. Rather, the Thirsty John’s Services in connection with the Store Direct Method include, without limitation: (a) providing on-demand lead generation, payment processing, marketing, onboarding, operational and other support services in connection with the sale and delivery of Store Direct Items by Vendor/Store via the Thirsty John’s platforms; and (b) enabling Vendor/Store to access and request on-demand delivery services provided by Store Direct Delivery Partners.

2. Payment.

a. Store Direct Service Fee. In consideration for the Thirsty John’s Services in connection with the Store Direct Method, Thirsty John’s will charge Vendor/Store a Store Direct Service Fee in the amount set out in the Order Form for each Store Direct Item sold by Vendor/Store via the Thirsty John’s App. Thirsty John’s will calculate the Store Direct Service Fee as follows: the Retail Price of the Item(s) sold by Vendor/Store via the Thirsty John’s App (including any VAT or other sales tax) (the "Store Direct Item Payment") multiplied by the Store Direct Service Fee percentage.

b. Store Direct Delivery Services. Vendor/Store will pay a "Store Direct Delivery Fee" to Store Direct Delivery Partners. The Store Direct Delivery Fee may be comprised of multiple components including, but not limited to: pick up fee, drop off fee, time spent, distance travelled, as well as other promotions and incentives. Where applicable, Store Direct Delivery Partners, via the Thirsty John’s App, will invoice Vendor/Store for the delivery services they provide to Vendor/Store, provided that both Vendor/Store and Store Direct Delivery Partner have completed the required Invoice Details. If Vendor/Store is paid for an Item, it is responsible for the Store Direct Service Fee and for the Store Direct Delivery Fee even if a Store Direct Delivery Partner is unable to complete the delivery services on behalf of Vendor/Store. Vendor/Store authorizes Thirsty John’s to (i) collect a delivery fee from its Customers on its behalf (the "Store Direct Delivery Charge") and (ii) transfer the applicable Store Direct Delivery Fee earned by a Store Direct Delivery Partner to the Store Direct Delivery Partner on Vendor/Store's behalf. In the event the Store Direct Delivery Fee exceeds the Store Direct Delivery Charge, Thirsty John’s will provide Vendor/Store with a discount of the Store Direct Service Fee equal to the difference between the Store Direct Delivery Fee (excluding any VAT or other sales tax) less the Store Direct Delivery Charge (excluding any VAT or other sales tax) (such discount amount being the "Store Direct Discount").

c. Store Direct Cash Orders. Thirsty John’s may facilitate a delivery option to Customers in the Territory that allows them to pay for a given Store Direct Item provided by Vendor/Store and all associated fees and charges resulting from that transaction in cash (a "Store Direct Cash Order").

d. Store Direct Delivery Charge. Vendor/Store authorizes Thirsty John’s to recommend and implement the Store Direct Delivery Charge (comprised of one or more components), and to subsequently suggest and implement modifications, taking into account factors including (but not limited to) customer demand, delivery time, delivery distance, and basket size.

e. Collections. Notwithstanding the appointment of Thirsty John’s by Vendor/Store as its limited payment collection agent under the Agreement, in the event of a Store Direct Cash Order request by a Customer, Vendor/Store authorizes a Store Direct Delivery Partner to collect the Store Direct Item Payment sold by Vendor/Store via the Thirsty John’s App (including any VAT or other sales tax) together with the Store Direct Delivery Charge from the Customers on behalf of Vendor/Store. The Store Direct Delivery Partner shall be notified of the funds to be collected by the Store Direct Delivery Partner ("Store Direct Cash Collections"), exclusive of any gratuities, in the Thirsty John’s App. Thirsty John’s role as Vendor/Store’s agent concerning Store Direct Cash Collections shall be to collect the Store Direct Item Payment and Thirsty John’s Store Direct Service Fee from Store Direct Delivery Partners by either obtaining the funds electronically or offsetting such amounts from funds otherwise due to Store Direct Delivery Partners from their delivery services in aggregate generated on the Thirsty John’s App. Vendor/Store acknowledges and agrees that collection shall be the responsibility of the Store Direct Delivery Partner. If for whatever reason Store Direct Delivery Partner’s electronic payment to Thirsty John’s is delayed or unsuccessful, Thirsty John’s, in its capacity as Vendor/Store’s collection agent, will act as a fall-back and ensure receipt of payment by Vendor/Store. Vendor/Store acknowledges and agrees that in consideration of Thirsty John’s provision of lead generation, demand prediction, and other related services provided via the Thirsty John’s App under the Agreement, Vendor/Store owes Thirsty John’s the respective Store Direct Service Fee, regardless of collections related to the attempted or completed deliveries. Thirsty John’s shall not be deemed to have waived its right to any amounts owed by Vendor/Store if: (a) there are insufficient payment M-Pesa order to set off against; (b) Vendor/Store does not timely repay any amounts owed to Thirsty John’s; or (c) Thirsty John’s elects to require a minimum amount owed before initiating collection efforts or otherwise delays collecting amounts owed by Vendor/Store. Thirsty John’s reserves the right to suspend Vendor/Store’s account if Vendor/Store maintains a negative balance for more than one (1) week. With each payment statement, Thirsty John’s shall report any offsetting and deductions.

f. Revenue Transfer. Thirsty John’s will transfer to Vendor/Store the total Store Direct Item Payment (including any VAT or other sales tax collected on Vendor/Store’s behalf) earned by Vendor/Store, together with the Delivery Charge collected from Customers on behalf of Vendor/Store, less (1) the Store Direct Delivery Fee, (2) the Store Direct Service Fee (modified to reflect the Store Direct Discount, if any) and (3) any refunds given on behalf of Vendor/Store to Customers (such final transferred amount being the "Store Direct Item Revenue"). The Store Direct Item Revenue will be transferred weekly.

g. No Additional Amounts. Vendor/Store acknowledges that the Store Direct Item Payment and the Store Direct Delivery Charge is full payment for the Items and delivery services provided by Vendor/Store to Customers, although the Thirsty John’s Services may provide Customers with the ability to apply a gratuity through the Thirsty John’s Services. Concerning cash gratuities provided by a Customer directly to a Store Direct Delivery Partner, no portion of that gratuity is owed to or should be paid to Thirsty John’s.

3. Batched Trips.

Thirsty John’s may, at its sole discretion, arrange for one Store Direct Delivery Partner to deliver orders to multiple Customers as part of the same trip. Batched trips may include multiple orders from Vendor/Store, or one or more orders from Vendor/Store combined with one or more orders from the same Vendor/Stores using the Thirsty John’s App.

NON-DELIVERY

The following Specific Supplemental Terms govern the Pickup Method and Items provided to Customers via the Pickup Method ("Pickup Orders"). All undefined, capitalized terms will have the meaning outlined in the Order Form, the Definitions or the General Supplemental Terms.

Vendor/Store agrees to make Items available via the Thirsty John’s App during its normal business hours, and as further outlined in this clause or mutually agreed between the parties in writing.

2. Payment.

a. Pickup Service Fee. In consideration for the Thirsty John’s Services in connection with the Pickup Method, Thirsty John’s will charge Vendor/Store a Pickup Service Fee

b. Delivery Services. Pickup Orders do not require the involvement of a Delivery Partner. As such, for Pickup Orders, no delivery services are provided, so there is no Delivery Fee or Delivery Charge.
