Payment plans for business

New York, NY |

Is it legal to have my clients sign for "recurring payments" for payment plans if they agree and give their credit info? If so what type of agreement do I need them to sign?

  1. So long as the client agrees to the recurrent payments, it is legal; you would obviously want to avoid any unauthorized use of a customer's credit info. +A clause outlining the repayment terms would suffice, although you should consult with counsel to ensure that it is drafted in such a way to protect your interests and adequetely place customers on notice of their rights and cancelation policies.
