    Need to develop a TOS

    Hey guys wanted to see if you could point me out to some tight TOS templates.

    Just need to finally put one up.

    Thanks,
    Aaron

    Aaron you could ask your provider if you can use their TOS
    A lot of companies do allow their clients to do this
    Just remember to change the name and ask first

    John is right on, whatever TOS your upstream has in place you have to abide by anyway. It's only smart to make sure your clients abide by the same rules you have to adhere to....

    Hm, bad attitude. TOS is very important in case you DO run into some 'bad' people.

    Spend some time on it, don't just put up a template.
    Also if you have the money, I'd suggest contacting a lawyer. Give them what you allow and wht you don't allow and they'll compile it into a nice written Terms of Service.

    I see a lot of them for hire on ELance.com
    Hope that helps

    Is there a way to know that they're creditable, though?

    TOS

    Well if its part of the contract I would guess it would be credible. I mean they have to agree to it. Now I understand if you suddenly just posted one and didn't notify people of the change.

    I might be best to have our lawyer wrap one out. I just hate lawyers. they answer their phone and bill you half an hour!

    Hello

    You also need to ensure you get adequate commercial insurance. Its an often overlooked area of running a business like this.

    You are very exposed to fraud, legal action and financial losses caused by failure of your own payment systems.

    This needs tobe part of your business plan as much as a TOS

    just make sure and remember that you cant just make up whatever you want

    there are still laws and regulations that protect consumers!
    if you haven't considered chapter 7 bankruptcy, maybe you should.
    eliminate your debt, keep the property you want, most people qualify.
    contrary to popular belief - no attorney is necessary!
