Adopting technology as per the new rules
Speaking to Shriram, Founder and Technical Director, Bramford, he said, “Customers who renew their services on NetBanking every month, have no problem with these new rules. Similarly, banks have no problem other than adopting technology as per the new rules. However, companies that have received money through this autodetect at regular intervals may be affected by the new rules.
In general, OTD websites such as Netflix and Amazon Prime run on subscription methods. Websites like these offer uninterrupted service to customers through auto debit options. No longer do these options go away, every time customers have to come to their respective websites, enter the card details in full and avail the services offered by those websites. Customers will not feel the need to enter all the details and get services every month like this.
When customers need permission
No problem if the money is coming in automatically every month. But, currently when customers need permission. Customers who were dissatisfied with the service are more likely to say no. Those in the mindset of `I was wondering how to stop this service ‘will not give permission. Thus the company will lose customers.

If a customer leaves in an environment where income is steadily coming in, they will have to look for the reason why that customer left and fix it. If you know that he will not like you for sure, you should look for a new customer to replace him.
Auto Debit will be in the mindset that at least so much income per month is guaranteed. But, there will no longer be a problem in generating permanent income. Even if I think I will renew the OTD service after one month, that one month’s income will go down for them. “
