They used to print and mail them, but they would like to use the internet to save them a lot of the grunt work. They're certainly willing to pay for it, but this is still a small business on a tight budget.

We've thought about going on the honor system and letting people pay by credit card or PayPal, but it doesn't seem like it should be that hard to find some way to have the documents secured until purchase.
