a. at the time of making the Order; or
b.at such later time after the Order is made.
3.4.4 You agree to pay the Instalments according to the Instalment Schedule.

NEITHER WE NOR HOOLAH SHALL BEAR ANY LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSSES OF ANY KIND THAT YOU MAY INCUR AS A RESULT OF A FAILURE TO HAVE SUFFICIENT FUNDS VIA YOUR PAYMENT METHOD AVAILABLE TO MAKE INSTALMENT PAYMENTS ON THE DATES SPECIFIED IN YOUR INSTALMENT SCHEDULE.

For the avoidance of any doubt, the assignment of rights to hoolah shall not include obligations that we have towards you, such as the obligation to fulfil the Order. We, the Merchant, will remain obligated towards you in fulfilling the Order and delivering the Products. Upon such assignment, you will be obliged to pay the Instalments for such Order to hoolah according to the Instalment Schedule as agreed between us, as Merchant, and you, as Consumer, and as specified under Clause 3.4 above. Where your Nominated Payment Method is declined or not authorised by the relevant financial institution upon confirming your payment for the first instalment, or where you are unable to pay the first Instalment when due (whether due to insufficient funds in your Nominated Payment Method, or the transaction being declined by the relevant financial institution, or a general failure of the online payment process), we may decline or cancel the Order request.

Neither we nor hoolah offers any lending or credit facility and does not provide any credit to Merchants or Consumers.
