Purchasing & Payment:

Q: Why does the website keeps giving me errors during cart check-out?

A: In most cases it is the credit/debit/bank limitation or security safety. Please confirm the card has not reached a daily, monthly, single transaction limit by calling the 1-800 number on the back of your card. Credit card issuers can see your attempt to use the card and can often allow for exemptions to purchase. You can also try a different card or Paypal/Google Pay. Please give us a call and we can try your card. (206) 604-8363

 

Q: Do you offer Financing, Net-30, payment plans?

A: We offer financing through the "Paypal CREDIT" option during cart check-out. It is a simple process and takes just minutes to apply. No Interest if paid in full in 6 months on purchases of $99 or more. Interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date if the balance is not paid in full within the promotional period. Minimum monthly payments required. Subject to credit approval

Q: Do you charge sales tax?

A: www.bluerocktools.com only collects sales tax in certain locations within the United States.  If you are in one of those locations, sales tax will automatically be calculated at checkout.  If you purchase this item though Walmart, Amazon, Sears or eBay they will all automatically collect sales tax at your local tax rates.

 

Q: Can you provide a W-9 so I can use a PO (meaning this purchase will be seller financed, you ship the item first and we pay later via invoice terms like Net-30)?  
 
A: No, our payment terms are PIA (Pay In Advance).  We are a direct to consumer retailer and full payments must be received prior to shipping any item.  Purchases can be made directly on our website or by phone (206) 604-8363.  We are happy to put a PO# on a shipping waybill for you so your receiving department knows internally where to direct the item.  
 
 
Q: Is there a way that I can buy this item and pay later?
 
A: Possibly, if you qualify though PayPal Credit.  Click the “Pay Later” button at checkout and see if you qualify.  You might also use a credit card at checkout to use the more traditional credit approach.  Either way, we need to receive payment in full prior to shipping any item.  
 
 
Q: Can you provide a W-9 so we can set you up in our corporate system? 
 
A: No, the IRS W-9 form is used for independent contractors or service providers who will be reported with a 1099 form at the end of the year.  We are a S-Corp retailer.  We should not be 1099’d.  
 

Q: We are a reseller, tax exempt government agency, etc? Do you need our tax exempt certificate?
