Payment Options 

Note: We do not prefer USD paypal for large order >$2000.

*   Wire Transfer: Preferred method for large amount. Our bank service fee $17.5 will be added to online invoice. (For large order from North America, this fee can be waived later) 

For your convenience, our bank $17.5 service fee is already included in the invoice. About US$20 intermediary bank service fee for non-US/Canada buyers will be covered by us if order is over $1000. 

For non-US/Canada buyers: If you like to wire C$ to our C$ bank account which would avoid intermediary bank service fee, we will not add our bank fee in the quote/invoice. 

Not recommended for small order since too much unexpected bank service fee would be involved (We would have to charge US$25 third-party bank fee for US$ wire and C$10 for C$ wire for small  order). 

*   VISA/Master/Discover card, securely pay online now to ship promptly:

We prefer billing/shipping address matches credit card billing address.

This is pre-authorization only, we will execute credit card charge manually including applicable discounted price and reduced shipping cost.

Some sensitive and very expensive items may not be allowed by purchase order especially for the small company buyer (Please tell us your company info and your required item list). 

Some items(cheap or easy-to-get items) may allow purchase order from universities outside of North America. 

Another special option for the payment: 

If you want to get rid of the service fee, you also like to get some protection for your purchase, and also prefer we ship early, 

you can send money by paypal firstly as deposit (with confirmed address), then we ship, after you receive goods, you mail us money order or company cheque,
