Payouts misunderstanding

Hi there!

We are developers and have now an app published. The app is about Text Marketing, merchants can send messages through it.

So, let's see the situation:

1. Merchant tops up, get some money on the balance, send 1000 messages (we spent this money, cos we need to pay to our SMS operator)

2. If the Merchant is a cool guy, he will pay his invoice and we will see money on our payout (in a month maximum)

But. If the Merchant is a bad guy, he can just delete the app without paying, after sending 10000000 messages.


How can we be safe in such situation?

Is there a secret, people?
