UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA

If you contracted to receive payment card processing services with Worldpay US, Inc., you may qualify for benefits from a class action settlement.

A federal court authorized this Notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

The Settlement has been approved. No further claims will be accepted as the claims deadline has passed. Individual payment amounts are still being calculated and are expected to be distributed in early September 2020.

 A settlement has been been proposed to end two class action lawsuits brought against Worldpay US, Inc. (“Defendant”).  The lawsuits, Alghadeer Bakery and Market, Inc. v. Worldpay US, Inc., N.D. Ga. Civil Action File No. 1:16-cv-03627-MLB, and Acebedo & Johnson, LLC, et al. v. Worldpay US, Inc., N.D. Ga. Civil Action File No. 1:18-cv-02688-MLB, allege that Defendant assessed unauthorized charges for payment card processing services.  Defendant denies these allegations but has entered into this Settlement to avoid the expense and uncertainty of litigation.

Under the Settlement, if approved by the Court, Defendant will pay $15 million into a Settlement Fund to be distributed to Small Business Unit ("SBU") and Independent Sales Organization ("ISO") customers who contracted with Worldpay US, Inc. for payment processing services from August 26, 2010, through January 10, 2020. Defendant has also agreed to amend its account terms and conditions as part of the Settlement.

Settlement Class Members who file a valid and timely claim are eligible to receive a cash payment. The amount of your cash payment will be based on a four-part formula, which is attached as Exhibit 1 to the Settlement Agreement. The deadline for filing your claim is July 8, 2020

The costs of notice and administration and, if approved by the Court, the fees and expenses of the lawyers representing the Class and Service Awards to the Class Representatives will be paid out of the Settlement Fund.

The Court has scheduled a hearing on June 3, 2020, in Atlanta, Georgia to decide whether to finally approve the Settlement and other related matters.

Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don't act. Read the Notice carefully.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS SETTLEMENT


DO NOTHING

You will get no financial compensation and forfeit your right to sue Defendant for the claims being resolved by this Settlement.

ACCEPT THE BENEFITS OF THE SETTLEMENT

You must file a Claim Form to be eligible for a payment. This is the only way to get financial compensation from the Settlement.

EXCLUDE YOURSELF FROM (OPT OUT OF) THE SETTLEMENT

If you ask to be excluded, you will not receive any benefits from the Settlement, but you may be able to file your own lawsuit.

OBJECT

You may remain in the case and file an objection telling the Court why you do not like the Settlement. If your objections are overruled, you will be bound by the Settlement.

These rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained in the Notice.

The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the Settlement. Payments will be made if the Court approves the Settlement and after any appeals are resolved. Please be patient.
