A payment power is any power on a card that has an arrow symbol in its text. The text before the is the cost to use the payment power, and the text after the is what happens when you do. To use a payment power, pay its cost and then do whatever the text after the —► says to do.
Unless the card says otherwise, you can use a payment power as many times as you'd like, as long as you can afford to pay the cost each time.
Some payment powers have an activate symbol (^ ) as part of their cost. To pay that cost, exhaust the card that the power is on. These powers are called activated powers. Remember, you can use an ally's activated power only if that ally has been in your party since the start of your turn. You can use an armor, item, or weapon's activated power on the same turn that it enters play.
