You must place your order online or by phone before mailing us your check. Discount product prices will be automatically applied when the Paper Check payment option is selected by you in your shopping cart or at checkout. Your prices are LOCKED IN when checkout is completed and you receive an order confirmation number. Personal check, business check, money order, bill pay paper check, and cashier's check orders all have the same order process and offer a discount over credit/debit card orders. Online check orders must be at least $300 minimum, but not exceed $50,000. Phone check orders must be at least $300, but not exceed $100,000. We may limit the number of check orders a customer transacts in any given month. To place a paper check order online, simply add products to your shopping cart, select "Paper Check" as your payment method, ensure your order total is less than $50,000, and proceed to checkout. During checkout you will have to enter standard information including your name, phone number, email, shipping and billing addresses, a valid phone number, and a credit/debit card. Check orders over $50,000 must be made over the phone during trading hours. We take your credit/debit card details in order to both verify your identity and mailing address as well as enforce our Market Loss Policy if you choose to later cancel your order or your check fails to reach us within the allotted timeframe.
Paper check payments matching your EXACT order total MUST be received within 10 business days of order placement or you will be subject to our Market Loss Policy charges on your credit card. All orders that are not paid within this time frame will be canceled and cancellation fees/market loss fees will be billed without exception. Any overpayments of $10.00 or less will NOT be refunded. Bounced/returned checks will result in a $20 bounced check fee added to the order total or charged to the credit card on file.
If your order total is over $10,000, you must send 1 check for the total amount. We cannot accept multiple checks or money orders for orders over $10,000.
We strongly suggest you send your payment Priority Mail or Express Mail with a tracking number to prove you have mailed your payment. Note that we DO NOT charge your credit/debit card for paper check orders - the card is only charged if you either cancel your order or your check is not received within the required time. Please remember to write your order number in the memo area of your check. After we have received and deposited your payment, there will be a waiting period of 5-7 business days while we wait for the payment to securely clear. As soon as the payment clears and cannot be reversed, we will ship your order and you will receive confirmation including shipment tracking information.
