Over the past decade, greater industry requirements and stricter licensing requirements have been put in place due to revolutions in digital commerce and online payments. To obtain a money transmitter license, many states require a surety bond, called a money transmitter bond. Money transmitters are often held to a high standard as they are expected to handle their client's money responsibly and lawfully. If you are an online retailer that accepts online payments, you will most likely need this type of bond.

If your business uses money transmitters, you will need to secure a surety bond to obtain your money transmitter license. The surety bond is required by whatever state you're in if you are using payment services, including wire, facsimile, electronic transfer, or payment instruments, such as money transmitters. Money transmitters are involved in the process of selling, issuing, or delivering payment instruments. These include checks, electronic payment transmissions, and money orders. This is a common licensing requirement if a business uses money transmitters, and each state determines the bond amount. The state you are in will determine the bond amount, of which you will pay a percentage of that amount.
The Florida Money Transmitter Bond runs continuously from effective date until canceled. The bonding company will bill for the bond annually. It is likely that variations in business volume each year will require either cancellation and rewriting, or amending the bond periodically as the Florida Office of Financial Regulation, Division of Consumer Finance may dictate.
