5. Payment Procedures and Late Payments
License Purchase Online. If You have purchased a license for the Software online, you will be charged the license fees for the first 12 months of the applicable subscription plans selected by you on the Effective Date. Thereafter, for subsequent years, the applicable license fees will be automatically charged in advance by Workshare to Your credit or debit card on file on or around the anniversary of the Effective Date until the license for the Software is terminated. By submitting your credit or debit card details You expressly consent to the charge of any recurring applicable license fees. If payment of such fees cannot be processed using the stored credit or debit card, You agree to promptly provide another accepted payment method to Workshare, otherwise Section 5(d) shall be applicable.
(b) License Purchase Offline. If You have purchased a license for the Software offline, you will be invoiced for the license fees for the first 12 months of the applicable subscription plans selected by you on or around the Effective Date.

In addition to other remedies available to Workshare, any payment not received by Workshare when due will accrue interest at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable usury law, whichever is less. Payment of such interest will not excuse or cure Your default for late payment. In addition, failure of You to pay license fees or other amounts due under this Agreement fully after the applicable due date shall be deemed a material breach of this Agreement, justifying immediate de-functioning, suspension and/or termination of Your use of the Software. Any such suspension shall not relieve You of Your obligation to pay any amounts due, plus late fees as provided for herein. You shall reimburse Workshare for all collection expenses incurred by Workshare, including, without limitation, agency fees, attorneys' fees, and costs.
