2.8 REVENI reserves the right to establish an indicative maximum financial limit for refunds or the value of exchanges we will provide through the Service, although this is not a credit limit and each application to use the Instant Refund Service or Instant Exchange Service is assessed separately in accordance with 3.2 and 4.2 below.

When you choose to use the instant refund service ("Instant Refund Service"), REVENI will, subject to (i) provision of certain information by you; (ii) acceptance of our Agreement; and (iii) us undertaking certain checks which may include a soft credit check (which will not affect your credit score), automatically and immediately refund to you, the price you paid for the goods you wish to return to the Merchant, plus or minus any additional fees which may be payable in accordance with the Merchant's refund policy.
3.2 Where the Instant Refund Service is available you will be entitled to choose how you receive your repayment. Repayment may be made by any of the following methods: (a) a transfer to your bank account; (b) repayment to your original payment method or (c) credit which can be used to purchase alternative goods with the Merchant.

3.6 Although the refund will be processed immediately it may take a number of days for the refunded sum to be received by you due to the process undertaken by third party financial institutions.

The fees set out above reflect our administration and management costs incurred in collecting monies owed to us.
5.9 Should we be unable to recover the sums owed to us in accordance with this section 5, we may, after complying with the applicable legal obligations and requirements, report to a credit reference agency that your account is in arrears.
