High Charge Volume (CV) Sponsored Merchants.

As a direct Card-accepting merchant, Sponsored Merchant will be bound by the then-current American Express Card acceptance agreement and American Express’s Discount and other fees and assessments shall apply.
Third Party Beneficiary Rights.

- Sponsored Merchant warrants that it does not hold third party beneficiary rights to any agreements between WeShare and American Express and at no time will attempt to enforce any such agreements against American Express.
