What forms of payment does Portland Bolt accept?
Portland Bolt cannot ship an order until it has been paid for in some fashion. If it is an order consisting solely of stock items, it cannot ship without being paid for first. In the case of custom manufactured parts, Portland Bolt cannot begin production without first receiving payment.
If your company is planning on ordering regularly from us and would like to establish a business relationship with Portland Bolt, you should consider filling out our credit application and applying to open an account with us. Once you have an open account, we will be able to accept and process orders with a standard Purchase Order (PO) from your company.
For international customers, we accept payment via bank to bank wire transfer. Depending on your location and bank hours, this form of payment may take as long as a day or two to be processed and received into our account. There is an additional $35.00 wire transfer fee. In some instances for overseas shipments, we may also be able to accept Visa or MasterCard. Check with your salesperson if you would prefer to use a credit card.
For customers who may only need to place an order once or who only anticipate needing to order our products infrequently, the easiest form of payment is via credit card. We accept Visa, MasterCard (or any debit card with a Visa or MasterCard logo), and American Express. We do not accept the Discover card.
Alternatively, you may mail us a check or utilize the wire transfer method already mentioned. Keep in mind that both of these methods will involve a delay that will vary anywhere from a few hours to several days, depending on the particulars of your situation.
