Lissted – Billing Terms
These terms explain how RealWire Limited (referred to as "RealWire") charges for the use of its services and supplement the Terms.
The fees for Lissted services are as shown on Lissted, except in cases of obvious error. RealWire can change these fees at any time, but changes will not affect any services for periods of time that you have already paid for.
Some Lissted services are free. Where a paid Service is utilised, fixed monthly payments in advance are required at an amount dependent upon the Service Level selected.
All fees are charged and payable in full in advance unless RealWire and you agree otherwise. Payment is non-refundable, and non-transferrable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial periods of use, upgrading or downgrading the plan you buy from us, or for not using your account.
You must pay us in £ sterling. Payment can be made by the debit or credit cards shown on Lissted. If you set up a regular or recurring payment, you authorise RealWire to take payment in this way on an ongoing basis using the payment details you provide until you notify RealWire otherwise.
Charges for Lissted’s services are solely based on your selection of Service Level.
All amounts payable to RealWire will be made without setoff or counterclaim, and without any deduction or withholding.
RealWire may agree to alternative billing arrangements on a case by case basis.
Fees are stated exclusive of VAT, and exclusive of all other applicable taxes and duties. If the rate of VAT increases, RealWire may adjust its prices and the amount you pay accordingly. You will provide RealWire any information it reasonably requests to determine whether it is obligated to collect VAT from you, including your VAT identification number. If you are legally entitled to an exemption from any sales, use, or similar transaction tax, you are responsible for providing RealWire with legally-sufficient tax exemption certificates for each taxing jurisdiction. RealWire will apply the tax exemption certificates to charges under your account occurring after the date it receives the tax exemption certificates. If any deduction or withholding is required by law, you will notify RealWire and you will pay RealWire any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that RealWire receives, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount RealWire would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, you will provide RealWire with documentation showing that the withheld and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority.
RealWire is registered for VAT with VAT number GB764134827.
RealWire may change, discontinue, or add to, these terms at any time. Registered paying users of Lissted services will be informed of this at least 30 days in advance. You are able to terminate the agreement before the change comes into effect.
