Q. Do you accept credit cards?
A. Yes. We accept all major credit cards.
Q. What is your "cut-off" time for shipping out packages each day?
A. 1:00 pm. However, we can frequently (not always) continue shipping until 3:00 pm, if the order does not require special handling (i.e. cutting mesh by the yard, chemical packaging, etc.).
Q. Will you ship my order via FedEx or UPS?
A. Yes. From our St. Louis Office, our default carrier is FedEx Ground. From our Atlanta Office UPS is our standard carrier at this time. When items are shipped from our St. Louis location, Customers may select UPS by telling us this when ordering, otherwise it will be shipped via FedEx Ground. NOTE: when shipping liquids via UPS, please note there is a "high damage" rate - this is why we have made FedEx our preferred carrier.

A. No. We do not offer Net 30 day terms. However, since we accept all major credit cards, this is nearly the same thing.
