Regulation E requirements and suggestions
  • First, don’t be misleading when it comes to “selling” this to your customer. 
  • Second, you obviously want to discuss the opt-in with your customer, but you need to make sure you are clearly explaining and informing them about what it is and what it isn’t. 
  • Lastly, it’s a good idea to have a script of some kind so that everyone is giving the same information.
