How it Works

  • 1 | Register

    The party that sends the demand letter, the “Sender”, must register.

  • 2 | Fill in the Demand Letter’s BidSettle SmartForm

    The Sender must fill in the smartform by answering questions and adding information himself. A demand letter will be automatically generated according to the content that was provided by the Sender. Don’t forget that the Sender is entirely responsible for the content of the demand letter.

  • 3 | Pay

    The Sender must pay the $50 per recipient, plus tax, transaction fee to BidSettle.

  • 4 | E-Sign the Demand Letter

    The Sender will then be redirected to a platform that allows BidSettle to verify your identity. You will then have to accept the Terms and Conditions of BidSettle and sign electronically. This signature will appear on the demand letter. At this step, you will need your mobile phone, as an access code for the e-signature software will be sent to it by text message.

  • 5 | We Send your Demand Letter

    The demand letter will be automatically be sent to the Recipient(s) by registered mail.

  • 6 | You Receive the Confirmation of Delivery

    As soon as the Recipient receives the demand letter, BidSettle will send the confirmation of delivery to the Sender. The Sender must keep this proof in a secure location as without it, the demand letter will lose its value.
