ASK ABOUT OUR ONLINE E-MAIL INVOICES: If you want to pay by card, we can set up online invoices to be sent to your e-mail at any time or set up recurring automated invoices for each time a payment is due.  The convenience fee is the same as if you paid with the card present in the office.  This will help reduce the risk of late fees without having to pay large lump sums.
