Due to the fact that Direct Debits take up to 4 to 5 working days to set up, there are two concerning issues:
1. Fraud. If we allow payments by Direct Debit and provision accounts, register domains, etc, there is a small risk of fraud;
2. Delay in provisioning accounts, in that, if we were to take payment for client's first invoice, we will then have to delay this process until the payment has been taken.
