What is a Georgia Buying Service License Bond?
Learn about the benefits of this surety bond and how to apply for one!
Big savings is one of the major perks of joining a Buying Service or commonly referred to as a Buying Club.
A surety bond is one of the major requirements when applying for a buying service license. Basically, the surety bond will guarantee that the licensed buying service will provide just and lawful service to its members by strictly following the laws and rules of Georgia.
In case the licensed buying service deviates from the rules and commits a mishap, the person that has been harmed by the act will be compensated through the surety bond.
The surety bond requirement is in pursuance of Section 10-1-593 of the Georgia Code.
