All orders must be paid prior to shipment. Payment can be made by money order, certified or cashier's check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover or MAC/Debit Cards. It is the customer's responsibility to make sure payment is received prior to the order being processed for shipment. If your account is on prepay credit card status, it is the card owner's responsibility to make sure that there is enough credit on the card to accommodate the total of the order(s). Dutch Valley will notify you if your credit card is declined, but we cannot be held responsible for delivery status if your credit card fails to process. No business or personal checks will be accepted until a credit application has been filled out and account status has been established. Our credit application procedure takes approximately 1 week to process.
Our terms are 2% 10, Net 15. A 2% discount on total invoice (excluding freight and tax) may be deducted if envelope is postmarked within 10 days of invoice date.

Dutch Valley will not accept post-dated checks or hold checks longer than 10 days from the date on the invoice. No credit will be extended beyond 15 days unless special prior arrangements are approved by the credit manager. Visa, Master Card and Discover Cards are accepted for payment; however no discounts are offered on payment of invoices with debit or credit card. Accounts that are not paid after 30 days will be subject to finance charges. If these terms are not met, we reserve the right to change your account to prepay status at any time, upon customer notification. Prepay status would require your order to be prepaid by Credit Card or be paid upon delivery with a certified or cashier's check, money order or cash.
