There are a number of business transactions when one party is unable to pay for the full amount of the item they have purchased or a service they have availed of. So, instead, companies often offer their clients an installment or monthly payment plan. This is quite common when purchasing a vehicle, a laptop, or a mobile phone where payments are made over a short period, roughly around 6-18 months, and usually with interest. When offering this plan, a monthly payment contract is executed to ensure that both parties are in agreement with the terms and conditions of the payment plan.

What Is a Monthly Payment Contract?
A lot of clients prefer paying on a certain scheduled date rather than paying everything in full amount. This gives them time to save and still acquire the item in the process. This is why a lot of businesses are offering monthly payments or installments. Clients are more attracted to purchasing something that they can acquire readily and pay for it later. And there are different ways to settle your payment, the most common is by paying on a monthly basis. A monthly payment contract will set the terms of allowing multiple recurring payments, in this case on a monthly basis, instead of one lump sum payment. Such contracts are used between a debtor, client, customer to another party that is owed money.
How To Create a Monthly Payment Contract?
Most payment plans, depending on the other party would have corresponding interest rates, or no interest as long as the payments are made on time. This is to ensure that the debtor does not default on their payment schedule. In some cases, a deposit is made by the debtor, after which terms are then set to settle the remaining balance through a monthly payment contract. Each payment contract may be slightly different from the other since you have to consider the particulars about the item or service but overall, you must be able to include the following details in the contract:
I. Contact Information
The client/debtor and the creditor’s name and address should be included in the first section of the contract.
A statement that defines the acknowledgment of the balance owed must be written in the contract.
III. Amount Owed
Write down how much is owed or the remaining balance in the contract.
IV. Interest Rate
If you wish to impose an interest rate, then make sure to include this together with the terms. For example, an interest rate will only take into effect if there are late payments or overdue.
V. Payment Schedule
Indicate what date of the month should the payment be paid by the client/debtor.
VI. Payment Instructions
Include the payment method you or your company is willing to accept (cash, check, credit card) and where the should payment be made or deposited.
VI. Late Payment
Late payments can be charged through interest rates or a specific amount. Make sure to write this down in the document.
VIII. Other Terms and Instructions
Include other terms or instructions in the contract that is applicable between both parties. You may want to include the terms on how to terminate or cancel the contract.
