Account Type Summary (service fees have been eliminated for 2015)
Account Type  
Purchase Order received in advance of shipment POMulti
Multi-shipment Purchase Order (Open or Blanket or Standing PO), billed annually
POMulti is a good option if you order frequently and your organization supports open Purchase Orders. If your organization does not use Purchase Orders to guarantee future payment for goods provided now, a 'promise to pay' letter from your academic department can serve the purpose (download a template).
Single shipment Purchase Order, billed at time of shipment
The POSingle option is for those who require a separate invoice for each shipment. You will receive a quote by e-mail when we process your stock request. Your stocks will be shipped after we receive your Purchase Order. We will bill your organization according to the instructions on your Purchase Order 1-3 weeks after shipment (depending on your location and shipping method).
Payment received in advance of shipment APSingle
Billing and payment in advance of each shipment

APSingle is a good choice for those who can pay by credit card online and do not need an invoice in addition to our quote. You (or the account delegate) will receive a quote by e-mail when we process your stock request. The quote serves as your bill, and your payment receipt is provided by the website when you make your credit card payment. Your stocks will be shipped after we receive payment.

Advance payment on account
This option is for those who are able to pay in advance for multiple orders to be placed in the future. We can provide a generic BDSC invoice for an amount you specify.
