Important: While these templates are a great starting point for creating your own practice documents, be sure to review and tailor these to reflect your state’s legal requirements and the way you choose to run your practice. We recommend consulting your regulatory body if you have questions.
Credit Card Authorization
By your electronic signature of this form, you authorize charges to your credit card through Stripe via SimplePractice for services rendered. These charges will appear on your bank/credit card statement as [STATEMENT DESCRIPTOR]. You have the right to request a paper copy of this document.
I authorize [BUSINESS NAME] to charge my credit card through Stripe. [OPTIONAL CANCELLATION POLICY: I also agree that my credit card can be charged for any session that is not cancelled at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled session.]
I understand that this authorization will remain in effect until I cancel it in writing, and I agree to notify [BUSINESS NAME] in writing of any changes in my account information or termination of this authorization.
I certify that I am an authorized user of this credit card and will not dispute these scheduled transactions with my bank or credit card company as long as the transactions correspond to the terms indicated in this authorization form. I acknowledge that credit card transactions could be linked to Protected Health Information.
