    Well you technically have the power in this situation because they obviously want their website up and you could basically flip a switch and their website would go down.

    Try and extend the payment time to like quarterly or set up a recurring payment that they can cancel straight away if they want. Should make it a lot easier to manage then.

    Get a billing system like WHMCS and setup monthly recurring payments. If they fail to pay, late fees will be added and the account will be suspended after 5-7 days. Depending on your settings.
