Payments are in U.S. currency by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, Paypal, money order or personal check (must clear bank before shipment 7 to 10 days). You choose your form of payment from a drop down list in the shopping cart system when your order is placed. Credit & debit card details are collected using a SSL secured server for safe and secure payment collection. Payments from credit & debit cards processed through our shopping cart (this does not include Paypal payments) are run through automatically for approval purposes when the order is placed. That means your funds are 'reserved' initially and then released back to your account until we either capture or void the transaction. The approved funds on our transactions are not captured immediately, we hold approvals until shipment or up to 7 days, which is the maximum time allowed before approvals expire. This gives credit card buyers a break on not paying for interest while your order is being processed or manufactured.
For safe online buying practices we do not recommend anyone use their debit card to their main household bank account to make purchases on-line on any site unless it is a separate account or pre-paid card just for Internet purchases. Credit cards are best to use or Paypal.com for security. Another suggestion so not to leave debit card information over the Internet, you may select "call in info" as a payment option. Your order is still forwarded to us for processing and you may then call in your credit or debit card number separately.
Credit card orders are only shipped to the approved billing address and must pass our CVV & AVS security systems. Due to the rising rate of credit card fraud we no longer ship to a separate mailing address for security reasons. If you need us to ship to a different mailing address payment must be made by money order, cashiers check or check (must clear bank before shipment) or have the alternate address added on file with your credit card company.
Massachusetts residents will have 6.25% sales tax added to their order. If using shopping cart form the tax will automatically be added.
