Credit Card Payments

      MDS Associates allows our customers to place orders online without the potential for exposing valuable credit card data on the Internet. Follow these three (3) quick steps:

      1. Place an order online
      2. Receive an automatically generated copy of your sales order via e-mail  
      3. Arrange for credit card payment - a customer service team member will phone you or you can call us.

      Credit card fraud is a serious matter that shouldn't be taken lightly. For this reason, MDS Associates does NOT require credit cards to submit orders on-line. Instead, we connect with you to answer any questions, confirm order details and obtain credit card payment information. That info is directly entered into our encrypted payment processing system, eliminating the transmission and on-line storage of digital copies of your sensitive personal and financial information.

      Orders will not ship until payment information is collected. In the event we are unable to make these payment arrangements with you, we may close an order after three (3) business days. Please feel to contact us with any questions regarding this business model or to request our federal I.D. number.

      All major credit cards accepted

      MDS Associates Accepts all major credit cards including Visa, Discover, MasterCard and American Express.

      MDS Associates does not charge your credit card until your items have shipped.Your credit card will be "Pre-Authorized" once your order is placed and confirmed. The “Pre-Authorization” process may show up on your account but it is NOT a charge; however, it will verify that your card is not fraudulent.

      If you have a back order, this dollar amount is deducted off the first-generation invoice and will be charged when the back order arrives and ships. Customers will receive receipts of sale by e-mail.
      We reserve the right to refuse processing or shipping of any order based on the information we obtain such as the billing and shipping addresses, amount of goods ordered, value of the order, contact information etc. For private/residential purchases, we may require a copy of your driver’s license to verify credit card information. 

      If your shipping and billing addresses are different, we will need to complete these three (3) steps to prevent delays:

      1. Confirm we have the CORRECT billing address associated with your credit card.
      2. Confirm we have CORRECT Card Verification Information.
      3. At our discretion, obtain the Issuing Bank Phone Number on back of card*

      *For security reasons, we may need the phone number to verify your information with your credit card company for alternate ship to address which are not on record with your credit card company. The phone number you just entered must be the number your credit card issuer would use to call you. Giving an incorrect billing phone number will delay the shipment of your order. Your order will be delayed up to 4 business days for verification if your information is incorrect.

        Credit Term Payments

          Customers with established accounts can order on-line and pay with 30-day credit terms (NET30).

          New customers can request credit terms by filling out and submitting the credit application that can be found here. However, this process can take 2-4 weeks+, so we recommend placing initial orders with a credit card while we confirm and review the application.

            Sales Tax

              Sales tax for orders shipped to New York State will be added to your sub-total including applicable shipping. Tax exempt organizations need to fax or email MDS a tax exempt certificate.
