Automatic debits by credit card

In addition, the customer allows Kit-Boutik to withdraw the amount of the unpaid balance from the credit card. The client also authorizes the financial institution issuing the credit card to charge his account for the amounts related to the Kit-Boutik services. This authorization will be valid until an authorized person on the account asks to suspend the automatic debit.
The Customer will pay by pre-authorized payment with a Customer credit card, or by cheque from immediately available funds remitted to Kit-Boutik. Payment by check will only be accepted for minimal three (3) month prepayment periods.
Service will be interrupted on past due accounts after a 48 hours notification. This suspension will be executed by removing client access and changing the home page of the account. Service interrupted for nonpayment is subject to a $25 reconnect charge. Accounts that are not collectible by Kit-Boutik may be turned over to an outside collection agency for collection. If your account is turned over for collection, you agree to pay the company a "Processing and Collection" Fee.
