The maximum outstanding balance you can have with Credit Key at any one time is $50,000. This may be spread across multiple purchases.

Your repayments will be made through your bank account. You will be given instructions to setup your bank on your CreditKey.com dashboard upon your application being approved. An automatic bill payment will be issued and scheduled to transfer the funds on a predetermined date to pay a recurring bill. Automatic bill payments are routine payments, until the balance is paid off.
