After selecting a payment plan, a statement setting out the payment schedule and if applicable, the amount of User Processing Fees and Down Payment, will be displayed on the Ablr App. You agree to pay us the Purchase Price and if applicable, Down Payment, with your Preferred Payment Method, in accordance with these Terms and Payment Plan.
5.2.2. Save for Clause 5.2.3, the first payment will be made at the time your Order is approved, and subsequent payments in accordance with the dates specified in the payment schedule.

5.2.5. No interest charges are payable by you for the use of the Ablr App or Ablr Services.
6.1. Upon selecting the Ablr Services as a payment method for purchasing an Item, you are deemed to have placed an Order.
6.2. If you wish to make an Order at a Merchant’s physical store, you must key in the correct Retail Price on the Ablr App. We shall not bear any liability or responsibility for losses of any kind that you may incur as a result of your failing to input the correct Retail Price. If you discover an error after the Order has been approved, you may immediately request that we cancel the Order and refund you for any amount paid. We may, but shall not be obliged to, process a full refund (excluding any User Processing Fees already paid) and allow you to make another Order afresh.
6.3. Orders are subject to Ablr's approval. We may, in our sole discretion, choose not to approve an Order, or cancel an approved Order before the Item is delivered or supplied, for any reason including but not limited to your history of Orders or to prevent against fraud, legal, regulatory or non-payment risk.
6.4. If your Order is approved, you will be notified via the Ablr App of the same. The Ablr App will also inform you of (a) your selected payment plan (“Payment Plan”) showing the amount and due dates for each instalment payment (“Instalment Payment”); and (b) Preferred Payment Method. You will be required to confirm that you have reviewed this information and accepted it. These details are also available for view in your Account on the Ablr App.
6.5. You agree to pay, and accept sole liability for, the full amount of the Instalment Payments. Each Instalment Payment will be collected by charging your Preferred Payment Method on the due date(s) specified in your Payment Plan.

You may additionally be subject to fees or charges assessed by your card provider, payment provider, payment processor and/or any other financial institution providing the relevant Payment Method. Please note that a late or rejected payment may occur because you did not update your Account with all changes to your credit/debit card information and your Preferred Payment Method.
7.1. All returns and refunds of Orders are subject to the Merchant’s refunds policy. If you decide to return the Item purchased using the Ablr Services, and request for a refund, you will directly contact the Merchant to request for the refund according to the Merchant’s applicable policy. For the avoidance of doubt, we are not under any obligation to notify the Merchant of any refund requested by you.
7.2. Where you request for a refund (whether full or partial), you acknowledge that refunds are conditional upon the Merchant’s acceptance, upon which the Merchant will submit a request for refund to us within a period agreed between us and the Merchant for processing a refund request. If we reject the refund request by the Merchant due to failure on the Merchant’s part to submit the refund request within the agreed period, the Merchant will deal directly with you with respect to the refund. Unless we receive the refund request from the Merchant within the agreed period, we will continue to process the Instalment Payments in accordance with the dates set out in your Payment Plan.
7.3. Once the refund request has been processed, we will issue the refund amount agreed between you and the Merchant (less any refund charges that may apply) (“Refund Amount”) to the Payment Method you have selected for making payment under the Payment Plan, or adjust your Instalment Payments appropriately.
7.4. In the event of a partial refund, the Refund Amount will be taken off the next due Instalment Payment, and then to the subsequent Instalment Payment until all of your remaining payment obligations are extinguished, as applicable depending on the Refund Amount. If the Refund Amount is greater than the aggregate amount owed under subsequent Instalment Payments, the difference will be refunded to the Payment Method you have selected for making payment under the Payment Plan.
7.5. In the event of a full refund, we will cancel all the Instalment Payments, and if you have already made any Instalment Payment, we will refund the amount (less any refund charges that may apply) to your selected Payment Method under the Payment Plan.
7.6. While we will process refunds as soon as reasonably practicable, the timing to receive any refund will vary based on the Payment Method and any applicable payment system (e.g., third party online payment processer, Visa, Mastercard, etc.) rules and practices. You acknowledge and agree that any Refund Amount due to be repaid to your relevant Payment Method is subject to handling methods outside our control and you shall not hold us responsible for any delays in relation to the same.
8.1. Your eligibility to use the Ablr Services shall be assessed and determined on an ongoing basis at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to deny, suspend or terminate provision of the Ablr Services or your Account at any time and for any reason without consent or prior notice.
