In this case, the Owner will refund the price and the delivery costs incurred by the User.
Accepted methods of payment are only those listed in check-out process. The Money Pit® uses third-party tools for its payment processing and is not connected with any of the provided payment information – such as the credit card – in any way.
If the owner of any of such third-party tools refuses to authorize a payment, the Owner cannot provide the Service and will therefore not be liable for any delay or failure to deliver. Any cost related to the User's not accepted payment process will be charged to the User.
