existence of iPayment Merger Sub shall terminate.

Secretary in accordance with the DGCL simultaneously with or as soon as

2.3. Effects of the Merger. At and after the Effective Time, the Merger shall
have the effects set forth in Section 259 of the DGCL.

2.4. Conversion of ODC Common Stock; Merger Consideration. At the Effective
Time, the shares of Class A common stock, no par value per share, of ODC and the
shares of Class B common stock, par value $.01 per share, of ODC (collectively,
the "ODC Common Stock"), issued and outstanding immediately prior to the
Effective Time (other than ODC Dissenting Shares and other than shares of ODC
Common Stock held directly or indirectly by iPayment or ODC or any of their
respective Subsidiaries), shall, by virtue of this Agreement and without any
action on the part of the holder thereof, be automatically converted into
1,825,000 shares of common stock, no par value per share, of iPayment ("iPayment
Common Stock"), to be allocated among the ODC Shareholders as set forth in
Section 2.4 of the ODC Disclosure Schedule. Further, the holders of ODC Common
Stock are to receive cash in the aggregate amount of Two Million Dollars
($2,000,000), promissory notes (the "Notes") issued by iPayment for an aggregate
face value of Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000), which shall bear interest at
the rate of six percent (6%) per year, and shall mature on the fifth year (5th)
year anniversary of its issuance, in form and substance as Exhibit A attached
hereto, and a deferred payment of $2,098,751 in the aggregate (the "Gross-Up
Amount"), to be allocated among the ODC Shareholders in such amounts as set
forth opposite each ODC Shareholder's name on Section 2.4 of the ODC Disclosure
Schedule), and to be paid by iPayment fifteen (15) days prior to the six (6)
month anniversary of the date of this Agreement. Section 2.4 of the Disclosure

outstanding shares owned and by each stockholder of ODC immediately prior to the
Merger, the number of shares of iPayment Common Stock to be received upon
Closing (as hereinafter defined), the amount of cash and Notes each stockholder

Gross-Up Amount that will be allocated to each ODC Shareholder. The 1,825,000
shares of iPayment Common Stock, the Two Million Dollars in cash, the Notes and
the Gross-Up Amount may hereinafter be referred to in the aggregate as the
"Merger Consideration."

2.5. Anti-Dilution Adjustments. If, between the date of this Agreement and the
Effective Time, the shares of iPayment Common Stock shall be changed into a
different number or class of shares by reason of any reclassification,
recapitalization, split-up, combination, exchange of shares or readjustment, or
a stock dividend thereon shall be declared with a record date within said period
(any such event or any event with a similar effect, an "Anti-Dilution Event"),
the Exchange Ratio shall be appropriately and proportionately adjusted to
reflect such Anti-Dilution Event, and all references to the Exchange Ratio shall
thereupon and thereafter be to the Exchange Ratio as so adjusted. There shall be
no adjustment in the Exchange Ratio in the event of any change in the price of
iPayment Common Stock or ODC Common Stock or any other matter, other than for
Anti-Dilution Events. All shares of iPayment Common Stock that are issuable in
the Merger shall be deemed for all purposes to have been issued by iPayment at
the Effective Time.

2.6. No Fractional Shares. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained
herein, no fractional shares of iPayment Common Stock shall be issued in the
Merger. Instead, all


                                       3
<PAGE>
fractional shares of iPayment Common Stock that a holder of ODC Common Stock
would otherwise be entitled to receive as a result of the Merger shall be
aggregated and if a fractional share results from such aggregation, such
fractional share shall be rounded up to the nearest whole number of shares if
such fractional share is .5 or greater of a share, and shall be rounded down to
the nearest whole number of shares if such fractional share is less than .5 of a
shares.

Common Stock that are owned directly or indirectly by iPayment or ODC or any of
their respective Subsidiaries, shall be canceled and shall cease to exist.

option to purchase shares of ODC's Common Stock (each an "ODC Option") pursuant

converted into the number of options to purchase shares of iPayment Common Stock
(the "iPayment Options") set forth opposite each holder's name (each an "ODC
Holder") in Section 2.8 of the ODC Disclosure Schedule. Section 2.8 of the ODC

iPayment Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective
Time shall be unaffected by the Merger and such shares shall remain issued and
outstanding.

2.10 Conversion of Merger Sub Shares. At the Effective Time, by virtue of the
Merger and without any action on the part of iPayment as the sole stockholder of
iPayment Merger Sub, each issued and outstanding share of common stock, par

2.13. Directors and Officers of the Surviving Corporation. At the Effective
Time, the directors of iPayment Merger Sub immediately prior to the Effective

shares of stock converted from ODC Common Stock to iPayment Common Stock, or
affidavits of loss or destruction in lieu thereof, may be exchanged for new
certificates reflecting the conversion.

3.2. No Dividends Paid to Holders of Unsurrendered Certificates. No dividends or
other distributions declared after the Effective Time with respect to iPayment
Common Stock and payable to the holders of record thereof shall be paid to the
holder of any unsurrendered certificate until the holder thereof shall surrender
such certificate in accordance with this Article III or provides an affidavit of
loss or destruction in lieu thereof. After the surrender of a certificate in

receive any such dividends or other distributions, without any interest thereon,
which theretofore had become payable with respect to shares of iPayment Common
Stock represented by such certificate.

3.3. Issuance of Certificate in Name Differing From Surrendered Certificate. If
any certificate representing shares of iPayment Common Stock is to be issued in
a name other than that in which the certificate surrendered in exchange therefor
is registered, it shall be a condition of the issuance thereof that the
certificate so surrendered shall be properly endorsed (or accompanied by an
appropriate instrument of transfer) and otherwise in proper form for transfer,
and that the person requesting such exchange shall pay to iPayment in advance
any transfer or other taxes required by reason of the issuance of a certificate
representing shares of iPayment Common Stock in any name other than that of the

reason, or shall establish to the satisfaction of the iPayment that such tax has
been paid or is not payable.

3.4. Closing of Stock Transfer Books. Upon and after the Effective Time, there
shall be no transfers on the stock transfer books of ODC of the shares of ODC

<PAGE>
certificates representing such shares are presented for transfer to iPayment,
they shall be canceled and exchanged for certificates representing shares of
iPayment Common Stock as provided in this Article III.

3.5. Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Certificates. In the event any certificate shall
have been lost, stolen or destroyed, upon the making of an affidavit of that
fact by the person claiming such certificate to be lost, stolen or destroyed,
iPayment will issue in exchange for such lost, stolen or destroyed certificate
the shares of iPayment Common Stock deliverable in respect thereof pursuant to
this Agreement.

                  ARTICLE IV. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF
                                       ODC

the corporate power and authority to own, lease and operate its assets and
properties and to carry on its business as it is currently being conducted. ODC
is duly qualified and in good standing to transact business as a foreign
corporation in each jurisdiction in which the ownership or use of its assets and
properties and the conduct of its business requires such qualification, except
such jurisdictions, individually or in the aggregate, in which the failure to be
so qualified does not have, and would not be reasonably expected to have, an ODC
Material Adverse Effect. True, accurate and complete copies of ODC's certificate
of incorporation (including any certificates of designation), bylaws, corporate
minute book, board committee documents or similar governing documents, and all
amendments thereto, in each case as in effect on the date hereof, have
heretofore been delivered or made available to iPayment.

contemplated hereby. The execution and delivery of this Agreement and the ODC
Documents, and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, have
been duly authorized and approved by the Board of Directors of ODC at a meeting
duly called and held and at which a quorum was present and acting throughout, by
the requisite affirmative vote of the directors of ODC or by taking action by
written consent in lieu of such meeting of such Board of Directors, and the
Board of Directors of ODC has declared the advisability of this Agreement to the
ODC stockholders, approved this Agreement and the Merger, and directed that this
Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby be submitted to the
stockholders of ODC for adoption by such stockholders by taking action by
written consent in lieu of a meeting of such stockholders. No other corporate
proceedings on the part of ODC are necessary to authorize the execution and
delivery of this Agreement or, except for the adoption of this Agreement by the
requisite vote of ODC's stockholders in accordance with the DGCL and the


                                       6
<PAGE>
certificate of incorporation and bylaws of ODC, the consummation by ODC of the
transactions contemplated hereby. This Agreement has been duly and validly
executed and delivered by ODC, and, assuming due execution and delivery by
iPayment and iPayment Merger Sub, this Agreement constitutes the valid and
binding agreement and obligation of ODC, enforceable against ODC in accordance
with its terms (except as such enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy,
insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, fraudulent conveyance or similar laws
now or hereafter in effect affecting creditors' rights generally and general
equitable principles, regardless of whether enforceability is considered in a
proceeding in law or in equity).

local or foreign government, court, administrative, regulatory or other
governmental agency or commission or other governmental authority or
instrumentality (each a "Governmental Authority") or with any third party are
necessary in connection with (i) the execution and delivery by ODC of this
Agreement and the ODC Documents and (ii) the consummation by ODC of the Merger.

4.4. No Conflicts. Neither the execution or delivery by ODC of this Agreement
and the other ODC Documents, nor the consummation by ODC of the transactions
contemplated hereby or thereby, nor the compliance by ODC with the provisions
hereof, will: (a) violate or conflict with or result in any breach of any
provision of the certificate of incorporation (including any certificates of
designation), bylaws, or similar governing documents of ODC; (b) materially
violate or conflict with any order, injunction, decree, law, statute, rule,
ordinance or regulation applicable to ODC or by which any of its respective

not bound by any outstanding subscriptions, options, warrants, convertible
securities, conversion rights, preemptive or other rights, calls, commitments or

in the Merger pursuant to the DGCL or the ODC Certificate of Incorporation.

      (d) The holders of bonds, debentures, notes or other indebtedness of ODC
do not have the right, as such, to vote on this Agreement and the transactions
contemplated herein or other matters with respect to which stockholders of ODC

full force and effect with respect to the obligations of ODC and, to the

equity), and ODC has performed in all material respects all obligations required
to be performed by it to date under each such ODC Material Contract, and no

is considered in a proceeding in law or in equity). ODC is not in breach or
default under any Lease and no event has occurred which, with notice or lapse of
time, would constitute a breach or default of such Lease by ODC or permit
termination, modification or acceleration thereof by the respective lessor, and
no party to any such Lease has repudiated any provision thereof. There are no

representatives and, during such period, it shall, and shall cause its
Subsidiaries to, make available to the other party all information concerning
its business, properties and personnel as the other party may reasonably request

exercised in such a manner as to interfere unreasonably with the conduct of the
business of the other party and its Subsidiaries.

      (b) All information furnished pursuant to Section 6.1(a) shall be subject
to, and the parties shall hold all such information in confidence in accordance
with, the provisions of the Nondisclosure and Confidentiality Agreement, dated

      (c) Notwithstanding anything in the Confidentiality Agreement or any other
agreement to the contrary, no provision of the Confidentiality Agreement or
investigation by either of the parties or their respective Representatives shall
affect the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements of the other set

herein.

6.2.  No Solicitation.

      (a) ODC shall not, nor shall it authorize or permit any officer, director,
employee, any investment banker, attorney, accountant or other advisor or
representative of ODC to, directly or indirectly, solicit, initiate or encourage
the submission of any Acquisition Proposal (as defined below) or participate in
any discussions or negotiations regarding, or furnish to any person any
information with respect to, or agree to or endorse, or take any other action to
facilitate any Acquisition Proposal or any inquiries or the making of any
proposal that constitutes, or may reasonably be expected to lead to, any
Acquisition Proposal; provided, however, that nothing contained in this Section
6.2 shall prohibit ODC from furnishing


                                       27
<PAGE>
information to, or entering into discussions or negotiations with, any person or
entity that makes an unsolicited bona fide Acquisition Proposal if: (i) the
Board of Directors of ODC determines in good faith that such action is
reasonably likely to lead to a Superior Proposal; and (ii) prior to taking such
action, ODC (x) provides reasonable notice to iPayment to the effect that it is
taking such action and (y) receives from such person or entity an executed
confidentiality agreement in reasonably customary form. Notwithstanding anything
in this Agreement to the contrary, ODC shall as promptly as practicable advise
iPayment orally and in writing of the receipt by it (or any of the other
entities or persons referred to above) after the date hereof of any Acquisition
Proposal, or any inquiry that could reasonably be expected to lead to any
Acquisition Proposal, the material terms and conditions of such Acquisition
Proposal or inquiry, and the identity of the person making any such Acquisition
Proposal or inquiry. ODC will keep iPayment fully informed of the status and
details of any such Acquisition Proposal or inquiry. The term "Acquisition

consolidation or other business combination involving ODC, any proposal or offer

portion of the business or assets of ODC, any proposal or offer with respect to
any recapitalization or restructuring of ODC, or any proposal or offer with
respect to any other transaction similar to any of the foregoing with respect to
ODC, other than the Merger. Immediately after the execution and delivery of this
Agreement, ODC will cease and terminate any existing activities, discussions or
negotiations with any parties conducted heretofore with respect to any possible
Acquisition Proposal.

      (b) The Board of Directors of ODC shall not (i) withdraw or modify, or
propose to withdraw or modify, in a manner adverse to IPayment, the approval or
recommendation by such Board of Directors of this Agreement, (ii) approve or
recommend, or propose to approve or recommend, any Acquisition Proposal or (iii)
enter into any agreement with respect to any Acquisition Proposal, unless ODC
receives an Acquisition Proposal and the Board of Directors of ODC determines in
good faith that such Acquisition Proposal is a Superior Proposal (as defined
below). Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary,
any action by the Board of Directors permitted by this Section 6.2 shall not
constitute a breach of this Agreement by ODC. The term "Superior Proposal" as
used in this Agreement means any bona fide Acquisition Proposal made by any
third party that ODC's Board of Directors determines in good faith (after
consultation and taking into account the advice of its financial advisor) is
more favorable to ODC (including consideration of its constituencies) than the
Merger and for which any necessary financing is then committed or which, in the
good faith judgment of ODC's Board of Directors, is reasonably capable of being
obtained by such third party.

6.3. Stockholders' Approval. ODC shall take all steps in accordance with
applicable law necessary to provide for the opportunity for the adoption of this
Agreement by its stockholders. ODC will, through its Board of Directors,
recommend to its stockholders adoption of this Agreement and the Merger and
other transactions contemplated hereby.

6.4. Press Releases. iPayment and ODC shall consult with each other and will
mutually agree on any press releases pertaining to this Agreement or the
transactions contemplated hereby and will not issue any such press releases
prior to such consultation and agreement, except as may be required by
applicable securities or other laws, in which case the party proposing to issue
such press release will use its best efforts to consult in good faith with the
other party before issuing any such press releases. Notwithstanding anything
herein to the contrary, the parties hereto


                                       28
<PAGE>
acknowledge and agree that iPayment may upon the advice of counsel and
provisions of notice to the other parties, file a copy of this Agreement or
disclose terms of this Agreement in filings with applicable Governmental
Authorities if this Agreement is deemed material to iPayment.

6.5. Expenses and Fees. All costs and expenses incurred in connection with this
Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby, including legal, accounting
and financial advisory fees and expenses, will be paid by the party incurring
such costs and expenses. No costs and expenses incurred by ODC in connection
with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby shall be assumed
by iPayment. Such costs and expenses shall be paid by ODC immediately prior to
Closing. The foregoing shall not affect the legal right, if any, that any party
hereto may have to recover expenses from any other party that breaches its
obligations hereunder.

6.6. Notification. Each of ODC and iPayment agree to (a) give prompt notice to
the other party, and to use their respective reasonable best efforts to prevent
or promptly remedy, (i) upon such party obtaining knowledge thereof, the
occurrence or failure to occur, or the impending or threatened occurrence or
failure to occur, of any event whose occurrence or failure to occur would be
likely to cause any of its representations or warranties in this Agreement to be
untrue or inaccurate in any material respect at any time from the date hereof to
the Effective Time, and (ii) any material failure on its part to comply with or
satisfy any covenant, condition or agreement to be complied with or satisfied by
it hereunder and (b) give prompt notice to the other party of any fact which, if
known by it on the date hereof, would have been required to be set forth or
disclosed by it pursuant to this Agreement.

6.7. Additional Agreements. In case at any time after the Effective Time any
further action is necessary or desirable to carry out the purposes of this
Agreement or to vest the Surviving Corporation with full title to all
properties, assets, rights, approvals, immunities and franchises of any of the
parties to the Merger, the proper officers and directors of each party to this
Agreement and their respective Subsidiaries shall take all such necessary action
as may be reasonably requested by iPayment.

6.8. Reasonable Best Efforts, Cooperation. Subject to the terms and conditions
of this Agreement, each of iPayment and ODC agrees to use its respective
reasonable best efforts in good faith to take, or cause to be taken, all
actions, and to do, or cause to be done, all things necessary, proper or
desirable, or advisable under applicable laws, so as to permit consummation of
the Merger as promptly as practicable and otherwise to enable consummation of
the transactions contemplated hereby and shall cooperate fully with the other
party hereto to that end.

6.9 Preparation of Audit Report. ODC shall cooperate with the preparation by
iPayment and its independent auditors of an audit report (the "ODC Audit") on
ODC 's financial statements and records and will provide access to such
information as is reasonably necessary in connection therewith. The independent
auditors preparing the ODC Audit shall be of iPayment's choosing, and at its
sole expense.

6.10 Issuance of Stock Options. iPayment shall reserve for future issuance under
the iPayment Holdings, Inc. Stock Incentive Plan approximately 56,378 stock
options, which shall have rights


                                       29
<PAGE>
consistent with options granted to other iPayment employees in the past, and
which may be issued upon the joint recommendation of John Rante and Greg Daily
upon final approval by the iPayment Compensation Committee.

6.11  Tax Matters.

      (a) The ODC Shareholders shall prepare or cause to be prepared and file or
cause to be filed the Tax Returns for ODC's S corporation short year as a result
of the Merger which are filed after the Closing Date. The ODC Shareholders shall
permit iPayment to review and comment on such Tax Returns described in the
preceding sentence prior to filing and shall consider such revisions to such Tax
Returns as are reasonably requested by iPayment.

      (b) iPayment, ODC and the ODC Shareholders shall cooperate fully, as and
to the extent reasonably requested by the other party, in connection with the
filing of Tax Returns and any audit, litigation or other proceeding with respect
to Taxes. Such cooperation shall include the retention and (upon the other
party's request) the provision of records and information which are reasonably
relevant to any such audit, litigation or other proceeding.

      (c) iPayment, ODC and the ODC Shareholders further agree, upon request, to
use commercially reasonable to obtain any certificate or other document from any
Governmental Authority or any other Person as may be necessary to mitigate,
reduce or eliminate any Tax that could be imposed.

                          ARTICLE VIII. INDEMNIFICATION

8.1 Indemnification by John Rante. John Rante shall indemnify, save and hold
harmless iPayment (including iPayment and its Subsidiaries following the Merger)
and its affiliates, successors and permitted assigns, and each officer,
director, employee or agent thereof, their respective controlling persons, and
their respective estates, successors, and assigns (collectively, the "iPayment
Indemnified Parties" and each an "Indemnified Party"), harmless against and from
any direct or actual (but not consequential, incidental or remote) liability,
demands, claims, actions or causes of action, assessments, losses, fines,
penalties, costs, damages and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees,
disbursements and expenses (collectively, "Damages"), sustained or incurred by
any of the iPayment Indemnified Parties after the Closing Date as a result of,
arising out of or by virtue of any misrepresentation, breach of any warranty or


                                       32
<PAGE>
representation, or non-fulfillment of any agreement or covenant that was to be
fulfilled prior to the Closing Date, in each case on the part of ODC, whether
contained in this Agreement or any Exhibit or Schedule hereto or thereto or any
written statement or certificate furnished or to be furnished to iPayment
pursuant hereto or in any closing document or ancillary document executed and
delivered in connection with, or contemplated by, this Agreement executed and
delivered by ODC to iPayment in connection herewith; provided, however, that
none of the iPayment Indemnified Parties shall be entitled to recover from John
Rante for any claims for indemnity or damages with respect to any inaccuracy or
breach of any representations or warranties, unless and until the total of all
such claims exceeds $10,000, in which case all such damages, including the
initial $10,000, shall be included in the calculation of damages under, and
indemnifiable pursuant to, this Section 8.01. Except as set forth in the below,
in no event shall: (i) John Rante's liability under this Section 6.01 with
respect to the inaccuracy or breach of representations and warranties exceed
$1,000,000 in the aggregate (the "Cap"), or (ii) the iPayment Indemnified
Parties, taken collectively, recover more than the aggregate Damages sustained
or incurred for any inaccuracy or breach of the same or similar representations
and warranties in this Agreement with regard to the same event, circumstance or
occurrence. The Cap shall not apply to any liability arising out of litigation
disclosed on Section 4.9 of the ODC Disclosure Schedule or any liability
actually known to John Rante at the time of the Closing but not disclosed on the
ODC Disclosure Schedules.

8.2. Indemnification by iPayment. iPayment shall indemnify, save and hold
harmless the shareholders of ODC set forth in Section 2.4 of the ODC Disclosure
Schedule and their respective estates, successors, and assigns (the "ODC
Indemnified Parties"), harmless against and from any liability, demands, claims,
actions or causes of action, assessments, losses, fines, penalties, costs,
damages and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, disbursements and
expenses (collectively, "Damages"), sustained or incurred by the ODC Indemnified
Parties after the Closing Date as a result of, arising out of or by virtue of
any misrepresentation, breach of any warranty or representation, or
non-fulfillment of any agreement or covenant that was to be fulfilled prior to
the Closing Date, in each case on the part of iPayment or iPayment Merger Sub,
whether contained in this Agreement or any Exhibit or Schedule hereto or thereto
or any written statement or certificate furnished or to be furnished to ODC
pursuant hereto or in any closing document or ancillary document executed and
delivered in connection with, or contemplated by, this Agreement executed and
delivered by iPayment or iPayment Merger Sub in connection herewith; provided,
however, that the ODC Indemnified Parties shall not be entitled to recover from
iPayment or any of its affiliates for any claims for indemnity or damages with
respect to any inaccuracy or breach of any representations or warranties, unless
and until the total of all such claims exceeds $10,000, in which case all such
damages, including the initial $10,000, shall be included in the calculation of
damages under, and indemnifiable pursuant to, this Section 8.02. In no event
shall: (i) iPayment's liability under this Section 6.02 with respect to the
inaccuracy or breach of representations and warranties exceed $1,000,000 in the
aggregate; or (ii) the ODC Indemnified Parties, taken collectively, recover more
than the aggregate Damages sustained or incurred for any inaccuracy or breach of
the same or similar representation and warranties in this agreement with regard
to the same event, circumstance or occurrence.

8.3 Procedure for Indemnification - Non Third Party Claims. Whenever any claim
shall arise for indemnification hereunder not involving a Proceeding (as
hereinafter defined), the


                                       33
<PAGE>
Indemnified Party shall notify the indemnifying party promptly after such
Indemnified Party has actual knowledge of the facts constituting the basis for
such claim.

8.4   Procedure for Indemnification - Third Party Claims.

      (a) Promptly following the receipt by any Indemnified Party of written
notice of a demand, claim, action, assessment or proceeding made or brought by a
third party, including a governmental agency (a "Third Party Claim") for which
such person seeks indemnification, the Indemnified Party receiving such notice
of the Third Party Claim shall promptly notify the ODC Indemnified Party or
iPayment, as applicable, (the "Indemnifying Party"), of its existence, setting
forth the facts and circumstances of which such Indemnified Party has received
notice, but the failure to notify the Indemnifying Party will not relieve the
Indemnifying Party of any liability that it may have to the Indemnified Party,
except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party demonstrates that the defense
of such action is prejudiced by the Indemnified Party's failure to give such
notice.

      (b) The Indemnified Party shall tender the defense of a Third Party Claim
to the Indemnifying Party. If the Indemnifying Party accepts responsibility for
the defense of a Third Party Claim, then the Indemnifying Party shall have the
exclusive right to contest, defend and litigate the Third Party Claim and shall
have the exclusive right, in its discretion exercised in good faith and upon the
advice of counsel, to settle any such matter, either before or after the
initiation of litigation, at such time and upon such terms as it deems fair and
reasonable, provided that at least ten days prior to any such settlement, it
shall give written notice of its intention to settle to the Indemnified Party.
The Indemnified Party shall have the right to be represented by counsel at its
own expense in any defense conducted by the Indemnifying Party (but the
Indemnifying Party will control the defense of the Third Party Claim (if it has
elected to do so)).

      (c) If, in accordance with the foregoing provisions of this Section 8.04,
an Indemnified Party shall be entitled to indemnification against a Third Party
Claim, and if the Indemnifying Party shall fail to accept the defense of a Third
Party Claim that has been tendered in accordance with this Section 8.04, the
Indemnified Party shall have the right, without prejudice to its right of
indemnification hereunder, in its discretion exercised in good faith and upon
the advice of counsel, to contest, defend and litigate such Third Party Claim,
and may settle such Third Party Claim, either before or after the initiation of
litigation, at such time and upon such terms as the Indemnified Party deems fair
and reasonable, provided at least ten days prior to any such settlement, written
notice of its intention to settle is given to the Indemnifying Party. If,
pursuant to this Section 8.04 the Indemnified Party so defends or settles a
Third Party Claim for which it is entitled to indemnification hereunder, as
hereinabove provided, the Indemnified Party shall be reimbursed or otherwise
indemnified by the Indemnifying Party for the reasonable attorneys' fees and
other expenses of defending the Third Party Claim that are incurred from time to
time. No failure by the Indemnifying Party to acknowledge in writing its
indemnification obligations under this Article VIII shall relieve it of such
obligations to the extent they exist.

      (d) Notwithstanding the foregoing, in connection with any settlement
negotiated by the Indemnifying Party, no Indemnified Party shall be required to
(i) enter into any settlement (A) that does not include the delivery by the
claimant or plaintiff to the Indemnified Party of a release from all liability
in respect of such claim or litigation, or (B) if the Indemnified Party


                                       34
<PAGE>
shall, in writing to the Indemnifying Party within the ten day period prior to
such proposed settlement, disapprove of such settlement proposal (which
settlement proposal will not be unreasonably disapproved) and desire to have the
Indemnifying Party tender the defense of such matter back to the Indemnified
Party, or (ii) consent to the entry of any judgment that does not include a full
dismissal of the litigation or proceeding against the Indemnified Party with
prejudice; provided, however, that should the Indemnified Party disapprove of a
settlement proposal pursuant to clause (B) above, the Indemnified Party shall
thereafter have all of the responsibility for defending, contesting and settling
such Third Party Claim but shall not be entitled to indemnification by the
Indemnifying Party to the extent that, upon final resolution of such Third Party
Claim, the Indemnifying Party's liability to the Indemnified Party but for this
proviso exceeds what the Indemnifying Party's liability to the Indemnified Party
would have been if the Indemnifying Party were permitted to settle such Third
Party Claim in the absence of the Indemnified Party exercising its right under
clause (B) above.

      (e) Notwithstanding the foregoing, if an Indemnified Party determines in
good faith that there is a reasonable probability that a Third Party Claim may
adversely affect it or its affiliates other than as a result of monetary damages
for which it would be entitled to indemnification under this Agreement, the
Indemnified Party may, by notice to the Indemnifying Party, assume the exclusive
right to defend, compromise or settle the Third Party Claim without the
Indemnifying Party's consent (which may not be unreasonably withheld.) If the
Indemnifying Party does not assume the defense of any claim or litigation, any
Indemnified Party may defend against such claim or litigation in such manner as
it may deem appropriate, including, but not limited to, settling such claim or
litigation, after giving notice of the same to the Indemnifying Party, on such
terms as the Indemnified Party may deem appropriate. The Indemnifying Party will
promptly reimburse the Indemnified Party in accordance with the provisions
hereof.

8.5. Recoupment under Note. From and after the Closing (but subject to the
provisions of this Article VIII and Section 9.9), any indemnification to which
the iPayment Indemnitees are entitled under this Agreement as a result of any
damages determined by a court of law upon a final entry of judgement (the
"Damages") may be satisfied, at their option, by recouping all or any portion of
such Damages (subject to the other provisions of this Article VIII), by iPayment
notifying the holders of the Notes that it is reducing the principal amount
outstanding under the Notes. Any such recoupment shall affect the timing and
amounts of payments required under the Notes in the same manner as if iPayment
had made a permitted prepayment (without premium or penalty) thereunder. The
Notes shall bear a legend referencing iPayment's ability to recoup Damages
pursuant to this Agreement.

8.6. Survival. All of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, together with
the representations, warranties and covenants of ODC contained herein or in any
instrument or document delivered or to be delivered pursuant to this Agreement,
shall survive Closing (even if the Indemnified Party knew or had reason to know
of any misrepresentation or breach of warranty at the time of Closing) and
continue in full force for a period of eighteen months following the Effective
Time (subject to any applicable statutes of limitations.) No party shall be
entitled to recover for any Damages pursuant to Sections 8.1 or 8.2 unless
written notice of a claim thereof is delivered to the other party prior to the
eighteenth month anniversary of the date hereof, notwithstanding any
investigation heretofore or hereafter made by or on behalf of any party hereto.


                                       35
<PAGE>
8.7 Payment. Except as set forth in Section 8.5 above, all indemnification
hereunder shall be effected by payment of cash or delivery of a certified or
official bank check in the amount of the indemnification liability. All
indemnification payments under this Article VIII shall be deemed adjustments to
the Merger Consideration, unless iPayment chooses to exercise its rights under
Section 8.5 above.

                               ARTICLE IX. GENERAL

9.1. Amendment. This Agreement may be amended at any time only by a written
