What type of payment do you accept?
Currently, we only accept major credit cards: Visa, Master Card, AMEX, Discover. Please check back at a later date as we might implement additional forms of payment.
>My credit card keeps declining, what can be the problem?
There can only be 3 reasons for this - 1)The billing address could be wrong. Confirm that your billing address has correctly been inputted into the billing info page. Wherever your credit card statement gets mailed (business or residential) is typically your billing address. 2) The credit card company recently put a fraud detection security on the card. In that case, please call your credit card company directly to clear the hold. 3) The credit card has reached its credit limit.
Please note: Do not try to use the same credit card more than three times; otherwise the system will consider that to be a security threat and block you from placing any orders for a 24 hour period.
If you believe none of the above conditions are true in your case and you still could not place your order, our customer care professionals might be able to solve this issue for you. Please call for assistance our customer care department at 1 (800) 518-0899.
If the order is shipping outside of New York, then there is NO tax. If the order is shipping within New York, then there will be a 8.375% tax charge applied to your order automatically.
