                   ADDITIONAL TERMS OF THE MERCHANT AGREEMENT

         Capitalized terms used but not defined in these Additional Terms of the
Agreement shall have the meanings assigned to such terms on the face of this
Agreement.

I.       PROCESSING AGREEMENT.

         Section 1.1. Processing Agreement. Merchant understands that the
     Processing Agreement (as well as the authorization set forth on the face
     hereof) irrevocably authorizes Processor to pay the cash attributable to
     the Specified Percentage of each of the Future Receivables to the Company
     rather than to Merchant until the Company receives the cash attributable to
     the Specified Amount of Future Receivables from Processor. This
     authorization may only be revoked with the prior written consent of the
     Company. Merchant agrees that Processor may rely upon the instructions of
     the Company, without any independent verification, in making the cash
     payments described above. Merchant waives any claim for damages it may have
     against Processor in connection with actions taken based on instructions
     from the Company unless such damages were due to Processor's failure to
     follow the Company's instructions. Merchant understands that (a) Processor
     will be acting on behalf of the Company with respect to the Specified
     Percentage of Future Receivables until the cash attributable to the
     Specified Amount of Future Receivables has been remitted by Processor to
     the Company, (b) the Company is not affiliated with the Processor and has
     no relationship with the Processor other than through the Processing
     Agreement, (c) the Company does not have any power or authority to control
     Processor's actions with respect to the processing of credit card
     transactions and (d) the Company is not responsible for Processor's actions
     and agrees to hold the Company harmless for the actions of Processor.

         Section 1.2. Merchant Instructions to Processor. The Merchant will
     irrevocably instruct the Processor to hold the Specified Percentage of the
     Future Receivables on behalf of the Company and to remit directly to the
     Company the cash attributable to such Specified Percentage at the same time
     it remits to Merchant the cash attributable to the balance of such Future
     Receivables which was not sold to the Company by Merchant.

         Section 1.3. Transactional History. Merchant acknowledges and agrees
     that Processor may provide the Company with Merchant's credit card history
     without the prior consent of the Merchant.

         Section 1.4. Indemnification of Processor. Merchant indemnifies and
     holds Processor, its officers, directors, affiliates, employees, agents and
     representatives harmless from and against all losses, damages, claims,
     liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) suffered or
     incurred by Processor resulting from actions taken by Processor in reliance
     upon information or instructions provided to Processor by the Company.

                                       4
<PAGE>


         Section 1.5. No Liability for Processor. In no event will the Processor
     be liable for any claims asserted by the Merchant under any theory of law,
     including any tort or contract theory for lost profits, lost revenues, lost
     business opportunities, exemplary, punitive, special, incidental, indirect
     or consequential damages, each of which is hereby expressly waived by the
     Merchant.

         Section 1.6. Processor Commissions. The Company and Merchant understand
     that Processor will charge a fee or commission for processing receipts
     representing Future Receivables which have become actual receivables (the
     "Processor's Fee") as set forth in the Processing Agreement. The Company
     and the Merchant understand that with respect to each such receipt,
     Processor will deduct a pro rata portion of the Processor's Fee from each
     such receipt based on the relative size of the cash attributable to the
     Specified Percentage of such Future Receivable sold by Merchant to the
     Company and the cash attributable to the portion of such Future Receivable
     which was retained by Merchant.

         Section 1.7. No Modification of Processing Agreement. Merchant will
     comply with the Processing Agreement and will not modify the Processing
     Agreement in a manner that could have an adverse effect upon the Company's
     interests, without the Company's prior written consent.

         Section 1.8. Processing Trial; Decision to Purchase Future Receivables.
     After this Agreement has been signed by both the Merchant and the Company
     but prior to the Company's determination as to whether to pay the Purchase
     Price, Merchant agrees to permit the Company to instruct the Processor to
     conduct a short processing trial (the "Processing Trial") in order to
     ensure that the Merchant's credit card transactions are being correctly
     processed through Processor and that the cash attributable to the Specified
     Percentage of any Future Receivables purchased by the Company is being
     appropriately remitted to the Company. The Company agrees to make a
     determination as to whether to purchase the Specified Amount of Future
     Receivables promptly after the commencement of the Processing Trial. If the
     Company determines to purchase Specified Amount of Receivables, then all of
     the cash received by the Company in connection with the Processing Trial
     prior to the payment of the Purchase Price shall be applied to reduce the
     Specified Amount. Nothing herein shall create an obligation on behalf of
     the Company to purchase any Future Receivables, and the company expressly
     reserves the right to not purchase the Specified Amount of Future
     Receivables and not pay the Purchase Price to Merchant. If the Company
     decides to not purchase the Specified Amount of Future Receivables and not
     pay the Purchase Price, this Agreement shall have no further effect and the
     Company shall, promptly after receipt from the Processor, return to the
     Merchant any cash received by the Company in connection with the Processing
     Trial.

         Section 1.9. Additional Amount. In the event that the amount of cash
     remitted by Processor to the Company pursuant to this Agreement exceeds the
     Specified Amount (such cash being the "Excess Cash") by at least $20.00,
     the Company agrees to pay such Excess Cash to Merchant promptly after
     receipt thereof by the Company. In the event the Excess Cash is less than
     $20.00, the Company agrees to pay such Excess Cash to Merchant promptly
     after the receipt of a written request from Merchant within six months for
     such Excess Cash. The Merchant acknowledges that the Company has no


                                       5
<PAGE>

     obligation to take any action (including against the Processor) with
     respect to any cash being held by Processor, which will become Excess Cash
     once it is paid by the Processor to the Company, prior to the receipt of
     such Excess Cash by the Company.

         Section 1.10. Reliance on Terms. Sections 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6,
     1.7, 1.8 and 1.9, and this Section 1.10, as well as provisions on the face
     of this Agreement are agreed to for the benefit of Merchant, the Company
     and Processor, and notwithstanding the fact that Processor is not a party
     to this Agreement, Processor may rely upon their terms and raise them as a
     defense in any action. No amendment to, or modification or deletion of, any
     of the aforementioned Sections shall be made without the prior written
     consent of Processor.
