Pave Plus Subscription
1.2 As a user of the Pave App (the “App”), you may subscribe to our Pave Plus subscription service. This subscription gives you access to several products and services including Bills Monitor, your Credit Score from TransUnion and Credit Insights using relevant information from your Credit Report from TransUnion.

Bills Monitor Application
1.4 As a Pave Plus subscriber, you can make an application for our Bills Monitor service. Based on your application information, you may be eligible to request a draw down (the "Draw Down") on your Bills Monitor Revolving Credit Facility (“the Request”). For the avoidance of doubt, reference to a Draw Down means the provision of cash from Pave to you provided under these Terms and repayable under the same.
1.6 While you may have more than one account on the App, you agree that you may only Draw Down once at any time irrespective of the number of accounts you have. For the avoidance of doubt, this means that you will not be eligible to Draw Down again where your current Draw Down is outstanding and has not been repaid in full to us.
1.7 You must provide us with details of a linked bank account for the Draw Down and in accordance with our Terms. You agree that the linked bank account must be your main bank account. If your employer or another organisation pays for your use of the App, your main bank account is the one that receives payments from such employer or other organisation. You must retain the connection with your linked bank account until the Draw Down is repaid in full to us.
1.8 If your Request is successful, we shall notify you accordingly through the App. If you wish to make changes to the Request, please contact us as soon as possible. You will be able to contact us for these purposes on the following – email: firstname.lastname@example.org or via WhatsApp: +447476556252.
1.9 A legally binding contract will come into existence between you and us in accordance with these Terms and the Credit Agreement.
1.10 We may need further information from you in order for us to approve your Request or during the period of the contract. To the extent that additional information is required, we will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it we may decline the Request.
1.11 Upon Pave's acceptance of your request, the Draw Down, of the amount agreed by Pave, will be made to you via the App to your linked bank account. No interest or any other charges shall be payable on the outstanding Bills Monitor amount paid to you by us.
1.12 Pave reserves all rights to refuse Draw Downs, and will notify you in such an instance accordingly.
Bills Monitor Payment
1.13 Upon Pave’s acceptance of your request, the Draw Down, of the amount agreed by Pave, will be made to you via the App to your linked bank account. Users of the Pave Plus service will be charged a monthly subscription fee (the “Subscription Fee”), which is payable by you, in your capacity as a Pave Plus service user, regardless of whether or not you are in receipt of the Draw Down. The Subscription Fee shall be a fixed amount, please refer to the table of fees and corresponding subscription levels in this section of the agreement for more information. The Subscription Fee shall become payable together with the Draw Down, where you receive the Draw Down (as applicable), in accordance to clause 1.14 below. No interest or any other charges shall be payable on the outstanding Bills Monitor amount paid to you by us.
Bills Monitor Repayment
1.14 Repayment(s) will be paid in minimum £25 instalments and the Draw Down is fully due within 30 days of receiving it. If you fail to repay within 30 days, we will automatically attempt to recover the Draw Down for a further 30 days. If we are unable to recover the Draw Down, you may lose access to the Pave App. You can also pay off the remaining balance in full before the 60th day at any point.
1.15 Pave will send you repayment reminders, via the App, at reasonable intervals before the date the Draw Down is due.
1.16 Payments can be made via debit or via a continuous payment authority (this is where you choose to give us the authority to directly take repayments from your account on the due date).
