5 ADDING FUNDS TO YOUR EXCALIBUR FINANCIAL ACCOUNT
5.1 To add funds, you need to log in to your Excalibur Financial Account and follow the steps as they appear on screen. We are not responsible for the money you have added until we have received it. For clarity, in an add funds transaction, we are the recipient of funds and not the payment service provider.
5.2 You may be presented with one or more methods to add funds, for example, bank transfer, credit cards or debit cards (in this Terms and Conditions, we will call these methods “Pay in Methods”). The number of Pay in Methods made available to you will depend on a number of factors including where you live and your verification status with us. Pay in Methods are not part of our Services, they are services provided by third parties for example, the card provider which issued you with your credit/debit card. We cannot guarantee the use of any particular Pay in Method and may change or stop offering a Pay in Method at any time without notice to you.
5.3 Any payment instrument (for example, the credit card or debit card) you use with your chosen Pay in Method must be in your name.
5.4 If you selected a Pay in Method which gives you chargeback rights (for example in relation to your credit card, you may ask your card provider to reverse a transaction on your card), you promise that you will only exercise this chargeback right if:
5.4.1 we have breached these Terms and Conditions; or
5.4.2 there was an unauthorised use of your payment instrument.
You promise that you will not exercise your chargeback right for reasons which we are not responsible, including a dispute with your recipient or if there are insufficient funds in your payment instrument. If we need to investigate or take any actions in connection with a chargeback raised by you, we may charge you for our costs in doing so and may deduct such amount from your Excalibur Financial Account.
5.5 For legal and security reasons, we impose limits on how much you can add into your Excalibur Financial Account.
5.6 We will credit your Excalibur Financial Account once we have received your money. For some Pay in Methods such as credit or debit card, we will credit the money to your Excalibur Financial Account as soon as possible subject to our right of reversal. This means if the actual amount you intended to upload does not reach us within a reasonable time, we may deduct such amount from your Excalibur Financial Account. If you do not have enough money in your Excalibur Financial Account for this purpose, we can demand repayment from you using other methods.
6 RECEIVING PAYMENTS TO YOUR EXCALIBUR FINANCIAL ACCOUNT

6.6 If the payment is made in the currency different than your Excalibur Financial Account, you authorise us to convert the amount according to the rate on that day; we will display the currency rate in your statement.
6.7 The time it takes for payments to reach Excalibur Financial is not in Excalibur Financial’ control. Most incoming payments are typically received within one (1) to three (3) Business Days, but may take up to five (5) Business Days or longer. If an incoming payment is not received within five (5) Business Days, we will initiate an investigation on your behalf if you so request. For such investigation we may require that you provide us with additional information associated with the expected payment. Incoming payments may also be subject to the terms and conditions of the entity sending the payment. Any issues or disputes associated with such terms and conditions should be resolved directly with the entity sending the payment and are not the responsibility of Excalibur Financial.
6.8 You may be required to provide us with additional information and documents prior to or in connection with incoming payments. Such additional information may include documents allowing Excalibur Financial to verify the source of the funds, including but not limited to invoices for services delivered for which you are being paid, and payment confirmation from the entity sending the funds. We may request additional information to enable us to comply with any applicable law or regulation. Such information will be used in conjunction with other information we have in connection with your use of the Excalibur Financial Services. Failure to provide such requested information may result in us reversing the payment. All information you provide us must be accurate and complete.
