Accepted Credit Cards (Preferred Method)
All orders must be placed online through our checkout process. We accept all major credit cards including Master Card, Visa, American Express, and Discover. We are able to accept most prepaid credit cards as long as the card has been registered with a billing address. Only a single credit card may be used to process the order.
Alternative Payments (Check, Money Order, ACH, Wire Transfer)
We accept check, money order, ACH, and wire transfers for orders with a subtotal of $500.00 or greater. The order will be placed on hold until payment has been received.
Once payment is cleared, the order will be released to process for shipment. Personal checks are held for 5 business days while they clear. A holding period is not required if a certified check is provided. All other alternative payment orders will be released as soon as the payment is received, with a minimum of 2 business days delay to receive payment.
Charges and Authorizations
Your card will be charged in full once the first item(s) on your order ship. When you place an order on our website, an authorization is placed on your bank account for the amount of your order. An authorization is a communication from your bank to our payment system letting us know your card is valid and the required funds are available. These authorizations may show as “pending” on your bank statement until the funds are captured. Once the card is charged for the order, the authorization will drop off from your bank statement, typically within 1-2 business days.
Credit and debit card providers differ in how long they will hold an authorization for a pending transaction. If your order has an extended lead time, a member of our Payments team may reach out requesting to charge the card in advance to avoid losing the authorization. Authorizations and/or pending transactions will hold these funds on your bank account, which can result in overdraft fees. Superior Equipment assumes no liability for fees in the event of such an overdraft.
All pricing is listed in US Dollars ($) on the website. When ordering outside of the United States, the funds captured for an order will be converted to the local currency of the ordering country on your credit card statement. The rate of exchange is locked in when your order ships, not when the order is placed. Credit card companies may also charge a currency conversion fee. Please contact your card issuer for further details.
Leasing and Terms
We offer leasing as a method of payment if an order has a subtotal of $500.00, is comprised of at least 70% equipment, and is being shipped to a location within the United States. The lease is handled through a third party company that Superior Equipment works with called Marlin Leasing. Please see our FAQ page for frequently asked questions about this payment method.
