Acceptance of Terms
Boxsite Ltd. provides an online platform (Boxsiteantigua.com), money transfers, and customer service (Collectively “The Service”) that allows like-minded individuals to create a Boxsite Member Account and, once approved, join an appropriate money savings plan that enables them to share money amongst themselves, via a Box (Susu/Group Savings).
How To Join The Service
The Service consists of an online platform, EFT processing, and customer support service (Collectively known as “The Service”) that allow Members to join an appropriate money savings plan enabling them to share money amongst themselves via a Box. There is a two (2) part process to become a Member and access The Service. You must first successfully complete and Submit our online registration form, which will give you access to the site and Boxes of your choice. The next step requires you to complete your Profile, including the provision of personal identification information, proof of address, job letter, debit/credit card, and bank account or other financial account (Credit Union).
NB: A Member cannot receive their Hand until their Profile is complete. If your Hand Date arrives before completion of your Profile, you will be refunded ALL contributions you have made up to that point only.
Anti-Money Laundering/KYC (Know Your Customer)
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Boxsite is required to know its customers by obtaining, verifying, and recording information that identifies each person who uses the Service. We are required to collect information such as the following from you:
If your identity cannot be verified, we will not be able to provide The Service to you.
“Member” means a person who has successfully completed Boxsite’s registration and approval process.
“Box” means two or more Members coming together to save a specific amount, by committing to pool their monies equally together at different predetermined intervals and alternate receiving the pooled amount at such same intervals.
“Throw” means the amount of money each Member has to contribute to the Box at each interval.
“Hand” means the total amount of money the Members Throw together at each interval to be received by the designated Member.
“Frequency” means the predetermined interval of the Box for contributions (Throw) and distributions (Hand) of the money. For example; Weekly, Fortnightly and Monthly.
“Key Characteristics” mean the details of a Box; like the number of participants, Throw and Hand amounts, frequency, etc.
“Join” means to accept the key characteristics of a Box and click the Join button to become a part of that Box.
“Public” means a Box is open for all eligible Members of the site to Join.
“Private” means a Box was created for a specific group of Members and can only be joined by those specific Members with whom the Box is shared.
“Handling Fee” means the % of your Hand that goes to Boxsite for providing the platform and services.
How the Service Works
After registration approval, Members are free to use the service. Boxes will already be made available for all Members to choose from with a variety of Key Characteristics in our “Planned Boxes” section. You may view the Key Characteristics of a Box by clicking on the “View Details” option of the Box display. When you find the Box(es) that suits you best, you may participate in the Box by selecting “Join” and choosing the appropriate available date to receive your Hand. Scrolling through the Hand date options is achieved by selecting the arrow feature at the top right-hand corner of the calendar. It is important to note that new Members to the site are ranked as Freshman and will not be eligible to receive the first, second, and third Hands even though the dates of those Hands may still be available at the time of them joining the Box. Please see Member Statuses and Eligibility further below.
Money is shared by and between all Members who have joined a Box. Within a Box, every member contributes the same amount in installments (Throw) over the Lifetime of the Box, and every Member of a Box receives the same amount (Hand) but at different intervals. All Throw contributions are made online via your banks online EFT platform, from your personal bank account. One Member of the Box will then receive their Hand directly into their bank account.
Boxes will be created by Boxsite, but a Member may also request a Box for his/her own private group of friends, family, or colleagues. The Member must send an email request to Boxsite to have their Box generated. The email must include the four (4) key characteristics of that Box: (1) the Throw amount to be contributed by each Member who joins the Box; (2) how long the Box will go on (it’s life-time) based on how many Members and Hands there are in the Box (one Hand per Member); (3) the intervals of payments into the Box and Hands out of the Box (Weekly, Fortnightly, Monthly); and (4) the date when the Box will start.
Throws, Hand Processing, Time Frames, and Penalties
All Boxes on the site will operate on a calendar Monthly, Fortnightly, or Weekly frequency, depending on that Key Characteristic of the Box.
All Members are responsible for transferring their Throw amounts from their personal bank account to Boxsite’s bank account, via the EFT platform associated with their bank, using the following information:
Name on account – Boxsite
Name of bank – Caribbean Union Bank
Bank address/Branch – Friars Hill Road
Account number – 20004243
Routing number – 282010708
All Boxes with a monthly frequency require that all participating members transfer their Throw amount to Boxsite’s bank account by the 3rd day of every month unless the proposed date falls on a public holiday or a weekend. In this scenario, the funds should be transferred by the following business day. All Boxes with a monthly frequency will have their Hands paid out to the appointed Member on the 5th of each month unless the proposed date falls on a public holiday or a weekend. In this scenario, the Hand will be paid out on the following business day.
All Boxes with a fortnightly or weekly frequency require that all participating members transfer their Throw amount to Boxsite’s bank account by the respective Friday of the week. All Boxes with a fortnightly or weekly frequency will have their Hands paid out on the respective Tuesday of the week unless the proposed day falls on a public holiday. In this scenario, the Hand will be paid out on the following business day.
It is important to note that the term “public holiday” refers to public/bank holidays affecting the site’s host country of Antigua and Barbuda.
Failure to transfer the Throw amount required for your Box, on time, will subject the Member to incur late fees in addition to the Throw amount. The fee incurred will be 10% of your Throw amount once a Member fails to meet his or her Box contribution commitment for more than two (2) business days past the original due date. If delinquency persists, the Member will be further subjected to additional fees of 10% per day thereafter and will be limited or may be restricted from access to The Service, including preclusion of joining more Boxes or receiving a Hand from any Box that the Member has joined.
Once five (5) business days have passed, Boxsite will charge the Throw amount plus all accumulated outstanding fees to the Member’s registered debit/credit card. If this attempt is to no avail, Boxsite reserves the right to retrieve any monies owed by a Member to the fullest extent of the governing laws of the Member’s state.
Member Statuses and Eligibility
There are four (4) different statuses for members to be ranked based on their conduct and longevity with the site:
Freshman – A newly approved Member to the site. This Member is an active participant in our community but is new and has not yet established any history with Boxsite by completing the lifetime of any Box. Therefore, they would not be eligible to receive the first, second, and third place Hands of a Box they successfully join.
Sophomore – A Member who has completed the lifetime of at least one (1) Box lasting six (6) months or more. This Member has shown good conduct with the community and has established some history with Boxsite. They are now eligible to receive the third place Hand of any Box they successfully join, but not the first and second.
Junior – A member who has completed the lifetime of two (2) Boxes lasting six (6) months or more, but not concurrently. This Member has shown good conduct with the community and has established more history with Boxsite. They are now eligible to receive the second Hand of any Box they successfully join, but not the first.
Senior – A member who has completed the lifetime of three (3) or more Boxes lasting six (6) months or more, but not concurrently. This member is eligible to receive any Hand of any Box they successfully join. A Senior can also request an early-partial Hand or an early Hand in a Box, outside of their scheduled time interval.
*It is important to note that there can only be up to two (2) early requests per Member per year; and approval is solely at the discretion of Boxsite. Also, in spite of these Statuses, Members will not be able to Throw any amount that will exceed 50% of their salary, whether in a single Box or multiple Boxes at the same time.
The purpose of these Terms is for you to secure access to the Service. All fees set forth within and paid by you under the Terms shall be considered solely in furtherance of this purpose.
You agree to pay all fees and billings relating to your Boxsite account in accordance with the fees and billing terms in effect at the time a fee, Throw, or charge is due and payable. You agree to immediately notify Boxsite of any issues that may affect your payments hereunder. Boxsite reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting on Boxsite or by email delivery to you.
The Handling Fee for any Box is 10%. In a situation where a Senior Member request an early-partial Hand or an early full Hand, the Handling Fee will then be 12% instead of the usual 10%.
Members will also pay an annual membership fee of $50.00, which will be required to be paid by the Member after their Boxsite Member Account has been approved. Membership fee is not refundable, but from time to time, Boxsite as part of a promotional campaign strategy may waive this fee.
Electronic Funds Transfers (“EFTs”)
When you register a Boxsite Member Account, you will provide the details of your checking or savings account to receive your Hand payments via EFT. EFTs are electronic transfer of money from one bank account to another, either within a single financial institution or across multiple institutions, via computer-based systems.
All EFT transactions are performed by our issuing bank Caribbean Union Bank (CUB). Boxsite will provide you with all of your transactions in your Member Account Dashboard in addition to providing customer support relating to your Member Account. No Communication should be made or attempt to be made with CUB regarding your Boxsite Member Account.

Controlling Law And Jurisdiction
You agree that (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in Antigua and Barbuda, and (ii) the Service shall be in the jurisdictions of Antigua and Barbuda. These Terms shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the country of Antigua and Barbuda, without respect to its conflict of laws principles.

YOU AND BOXSITE AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICE OR COLLECTIVE CONTENT MUST COMMENCE WITHIN SIX (6) MONTHS AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED AND WAIVED.
These Terms are intended to govern the agreement between Boxsite and you to the extent permitted by all applicable laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations. If any provision of these Terms or the application thereof to any person or circumstances shall, for any reason or to any extent, be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms and the application of such provision to other persons or circumstances shall not be affected thereby, but rather shall be enforced to the greatest extent permitted by law.
The failure of Boxsite to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Boxsite. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
Any additional parts to the Service may have different or additional terms and conditions posted or may require you to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these Terms and the terms and conditions posted for a specific part of the Service, the latter terms and conditions will take precedence.
Boxsite reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service or to modify these Terms, including any Service Fees, at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these Terms, we will post the modification on the Site; however, we reserve the right to make any such changes effective immediately to maintain the security of our Service or to comply with any laws or regulations. We will update the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms.
Modifications to these Terms shall automatically be effective upon posting; provided, however, that material changes to the Terms will be effective as to an existing Member thirty (30) days after notice to the Member is provided on Boxsite’s website. You agree to keep your email address on file with Boxsite up-to-date. By continuing to access or use the Service after we have posted a modification or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Service.
