Credit Card Authorization Form
Whenever you are taking payment by credit card and the card isn’t present, there is some degree of risk. To safeguard against that risk — which includes chargebacks — you could ask your customer to sign a document that gives you permission to charge their card on an ongoing basis. That document is called a credit card authorization form. A credit card authorization form is a document, signed by the cardholder, that grants a merchant permission to charge their credit card for a period of time as written in that document. The form is often used to give businesses the ongoing authority to charge the cardholder on a recurring basis — whether that’s monthly, quarterly, or more sporadically for specific types of payments like deposits, or security fees. Having a card on file is a great idea for event businesses who use rentals, and are concerned about lost, stolen or damaged items. Whether it’s taking a final payment or charging for a damaged item, this document protects those transactions from being unfairly disputed resulting in a chargeback. ***Note: This is a DIGITAL FILE and/or A FILE LINK.
