Much like a signed receipt for a retail transaction, authorizations for electronic payments protect both you and your customers. They’re especially important when it comes to ACH transactions, but we recommend them for credit card payments as well. Make sure you keep your completed authorization forms in a locked filing cabinet, only accessible by trusted employees within your organization.
We have created the following customizable authorization forms for recurring payments that you can distribute via email, snail mail, or in-person for payments or donations:
Customizable Authorization Forms (.doc):
- Recurring Payments (Credit Card or ACH)
- One-Time Payment (Credit Card)
- One-Time Payment (ACH)
- Business-to-Business ACH Payments (Recurring or One-Time)
