We do not guarantee the availability or applicability of a withdrawal payment method and reserve the right to make changes at any time without any prior notice, provided that we always leave one method available to you to withdraw funds. Where the withdrawal payment is received by you through the involvement of a payment service provider (such as the bank where you hold a bank account), we shall not be responsible for the withdrawal payment once the withdrawn funds are received by your payment service provider. For the purposes of a withdrawal transaction, we are a payer and not a payment service provider.

Withdrawals are subject to withdrawal fees and currency conversion fees depending on which withdrawal method and payment instrument is chosen. Please see the ILIXIUM website.
Your ILIXIUM Account is subjected to withdrawal limits and fees.
Withdrawals to you only.
You must only make withdrawals to a bank account or other payment instrument that you are the named holder of. Any violation of this requirement will be treated as a fraudulent act. Without prejudice to claiming further damages, if we are required to investigate a withdrawal to a payment instrument that is not in your name, we may charge an administration fee of up to £10.
You must ensure that the payment details you enter when withdrawing funds are correct and complete. We will not be liable for withdrawn funds being sent to the wrong payment instrument where this is due to you providing incorrect payment details. When withdrawing to a bank account, you must ensure that the account number, sort code, IBAN and/or BIC/SWIFT are correct. If you have withdrawn funds from the wrong payment instrument, you may request that we assist you in reclaiming the funds, however, we may charge you an administration fee of up to £20 for doing so and we cannot guarantee that the reclaim efforts will be successful.
The payment method you select to receive your withdrawal must belong to you.
9. Account Balances
Balances and transaction information.
You may check your current e-Money balance and view your statement by logging into your ILIXIUM Account and viewing the “Transaction History”. All account loading, spending and withdrawals with corresponding fees incurred and any other amounts charged to your account in the relevant period will be shown in “Transaction History” of your ILIXIUM Account. ILIXIUM will ensure that the details of each transaction will be made available for you to view online for at least 24 months from when it is first made available.
The “Transaction History” will be updated after any activity on your account relating to the change of balance. The way in which we provide the transaction information will allow you to store and reproduce the information unchanged, for example by printing a copy.
Any change in balance including spending activity will be communicated to you via email and the relating information will be updated and made available to you at any time by logging into your ILIXIUM Account.
You do not need to maintain a Balance in your ILIXIUM Account in order to make payments. A Balance will be created whenever you use the ILIXIUM Service when you make either a payment with either a payment card or via your bank. If you hold a balance you will not receive interest or any other earnings on this Balance because the Balance represents e-Money and not a deposit.
You can check your balance by logging into your ILIXIUM Account. We will notify you by email every time your balance is changed.
Multiple Currency Accounts.
ILIXIUM may allow you to hold multiple currency sub-accounts within your ILIXIUM Account in order to transact in different currencies from your base currency.
If one of the currency balances in your sub-accounts shows that you owe us any amount of funds for any reason, ILIXIUM may set-off the amount you owe us by using funds you maintain in a different currency sub-account, using our standard foreign currency charges. ILIXIUM may also deduct amounts you owe from money you receive into your account, or money you attempt to withdraw.
You are responsible for all risks associated with maintaining balances in multiple currencies (including, without limitation, the risk that the value of these balances will fluctuate as exchange rates change, which over time may result in a significant decrease in the value of the balances).
You agree that you will not attempt to use multiple currencies for speculative trading.
We may allow you to hold multiple sub-accounts in order to transact in different currencies.
You may be charged a fee for actions relating to ILIXIUM Services, these fees are shown in our website. These fees may be changed at any time and you are recommended to check this area of the website regularly and print a copy of these fees together with a copy of this User Agreement. Fees are associated with actions relating to the use of ILIXIUM Services and you are able to see all charges incurred on your ILIXIUM Account by logging into your ILIXIUM account which will show the corresponding fee per transaction.
Foreign Currency Charges.
You may be charged for performing transactions which result in a foreign exchange from one currency to another, the charges may differ based on the two scenarios below:
- Making a payment within a merchant website
- Converting stored funds within your ILIXIUM account either to withdrawal or spend later
For every currency conversion, we will apply our then current wholesale exchange rate (these are the rate we are supplied by our foreign exchange partner) and our ILIXIUM handling fee which are both expressed as a percentage of the value of the exchange. You will be shown both the applicable wholesale exchange rate and also the ILIXIUM handling fee prior to completing any transaction which will incur a foreign currency charge.
For your reference the latest wholesale exchange rates and available once you are logged into your ILIXIUM account and can be viewed, these rates will change regularly throughout the day. The foreign exchange handling fees are shown in the Pricing section of our website.
Our fees may either be a fixed amount in GBP or expressed as a percentage of the value of the transaction. If fees are deducted from a balance or a transaction denominated in a different currency, the GBP fee amount will be converted into an equivalent fee in that other currency based on our wholesale exchange rate applicable at the time and available within your ILIXIUM Account and then deducted. We will not apply a ILIXIUM FX handling fee on currency conversions of fees.
Paying your Fees.
If your ILIXIUM Account balance is insufficient to cover the transaction fees, we may refuse to execute the payment.
Reversal or chargeback fees will be deducted when incurred. You hereby authorise us to deduct fees, payable by you, from your account balance.
If the deduction of fees results in a negative balance in your ILIXIUM Account, you will be required to repay such negative balance by uploading sufficient funds, failure to do so is a breach of this User Agreement. Repayment of the negative balance is due immediately without notice, however, we reserve the right at any time to send you reminders that you need to upload funds or to take other debt collection measures including but not limited to instructing a debt collection agency or solicitors or to pursue the claim in court.

You can inspect your transaction history at any time by logging in to your ILIXIUM Account, we strongly recommend that you monitor your ILIXIUM Account closely on a regular basis. You must notify us immediately
If you believe that there has been any unauthorized access to your ILIXIUM Account, unauthorized transactions sent from your account, your password/pin has been compromised, or any other error has occurred on your account. We will not seek to hold you liable for any unauthorised use of your ILIXIUM Account by any person provided that we are satisfied that you have not acted deliberately so as to enable any third person to gain access to your username and/or password/PIN. We will hold you liable for unauthorised use of your ILIXIUM Account if we have evidence that you acted deliberately so as to enable any third person to gain access to your account; you acted fraudulently; or if you have with intent or gross negligence failed to comply with your obligations to use your account in the manner set out in this Agreement.
Notifying us of Errors and Unauthorised Transactions.
Review of Reports of Errors.
We will advise you of the results of our investigation within 20 business days after we receive your notice. If we have made an error, we will correct it promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 30 business days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide that we need more time, we will provisionally re-credit your account for the amount you think is in error within 20 business days after we receive your notice; so that you will have use of the e-Money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If you initially provided information to us via the telephone and we do not receive your complaint or question in writing within 10 Business Days after your oral notice, we are not required to provisionally re-credit your Account.
At the end of our investigation, we will advise you of the results within three Business Days. If we determine that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation and we may debit any provisional credit that we previously credited to you in relation to the alleged error. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
Treating Unauthorised Transactions.
If your report an unauthorized transaction which following investigation by ILIXIUM has proven there is no evidence to suggest fraud or deliberate or gross negligence by you, ILIXIUM will credit you in full for all unauthorized transactions sent from your account, provided that you have informed us of the unauthorized transaction and account breach without delay. Where we believe in our reasonable opinion that further investigation is required to ascertain more clearly the circumstances surrounding the reported Improper Account Access, we will ask you to provide more detail in writing.
If we discover a processing error, we will rectify the error. If the error resulted in your receiving less money than you were entitled to, we will credit your Account for the difference. If the error results in you receiving more money than you were entitled to, we may debit the extra funds from your account.
If a payment was made to your ILIXIUM Account by way of mistake, ILIXIUM may correct the mistake by debiting or crediting (as the case may be) your account balance. If the error resulted in our not completing a transaction on time or in the correct amount, we will be liable to refund any amount as a result of carrying out a defective or non-executed payment transaction and for your losses or damages directly and reasonably foreseeably caused by this failure, unless:
- through no fault of ours, you did not have enough available funds to complete the transaction,
- our system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transaction, or
- circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood or loss of Internet connection) prevented the transaction, despite our reasonable precautions.
Notwithstanding any other term of this Agreement, ILIXIUM will not be held liable for the non-execution or defective execution of a payment transaction if you have failed to notify ILIXIUM of such an incorrectly executed payment transaction without undue delay, or in any event no later than within 13 months after the transaction date, on becoming aware of such incorrectly executed payment transaction.
If you notice suspicious activity or any sort of errors in your ILIXIUM Account you must contact us immediately by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone. We will then proceed with our investigations and advise you of the results.
