The customer will only need to complete the authorization agreement for the first payment with your business, future bank payment requests will simply ask the customer to submit their payment.
The customer will receive a copy of their authorization form for the bank payment and a receipt for the transaction once complete.
You will also be notified when the customer completes the authorization form and when the payment has been completed.
