tutorials bay is an online academic learning assistance and tutoring marketplace where you can get answers to questions you are struggling with and get paid to answer questions on topics you know a lot about. There are three categories of persons (“users”) using the Site: Visitors, who merely view the Site without posting any content; Purchasers (the people asking questions and purchasing answers to questions posted on the Site, called “Query Transactions”); and Contributors, the people answering the questions posed by Purchasers and selling answers to Purchasers (which is the other side of a Query Transaction). Potential Purchasers may simply post a question they want answered on the site. Tutorials Bay will make these questions available to the Contributors. Contributors may post answers to these questions, called tutorials, and Purchasers, in turn, may use their PayPal or other online payment or credit card accounts to buy them. Any user or Visitor can also be either a Purchaser or a Contributor or both. Users, visitors, Purchasers, and Contributors will be collectively referred to as “you” or “your” in these Terms.

Your PayPal or Online Payment/Checkout Account
You must have either a PayPal account or another online payment account to buy or sell Contributions on the Site. Purchasers must have sufficient funds available in their account to fully pay for the total cost of any transaction they want to make. Purchasers may not engage in a Query Transaction if they do not have sufficient funds in their account. If a Purchaser pays you for a Query Transaction, either PayPal or Google Checkout will transfer the money from the Purchaser’s account into either our PayPal or Google Checkout account. We will then transfer the money to your PayPal account upon request; payments may take up to 6 weeks to process. Tutorials Bay is not a financial institution. Tutorials Bay does not insure you for any loss that might occur from your PayPal or Google Checkout accounts and does not pay you interest on your accounts. Tutorials Bay is not responsible for your use of the PayPal or Google Checkout services. You must resolve any disputes directly with PayPal or Google Checkout.
