Payment and Credit Terms

MIT accepts cash, company checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and PayPal. For customers with established MIT credit accounts, payment terms are net thirty (30) days from the date of shipment. All credit extended by MIT to customer, and the limits of such credit, is at MIT’s sole discretion, and may be reduced or revoked by MIT at any time, for any reason. MIT reserves the right to charge a convenience fee for late payments. MIT further reserves the right to charge customer a late payment fee at the rate of one and one-half percent (1-1/2%) of the amount due for each month or portion thereof that the amount due remains unpaid, or such lesser amount as may be permitted under applicable law. All payments must be made in U.S. dollars. MIT shall have the right of set-off and deduction for any sums owed by customer to MIT.

If customer fails to make payment within thirty (30) days of shipment, or fails to comply with MIT’s credit terms, or fails to supply adequate assurance of full performance to MIT within a reasonable time after requested by MIT (such time as specified in MIT’s request), MIT may defer shipments until such payment or compliance is made, require cash in advance for any further shipments, demand immediate payment of all amounts then owed, elect to pursue collection action (including without limitation, attorneys’ fees and any and all other associated costs of collection), and/or may, at its option, cancel all or any part of an unshipped order.
