How to Write a Check and Save

Pay-by-Check Discount Policy

Our mission is to 'make buying technical products simple,' even when you're paying by check. And, by writing a check, you can earn a 2% discount* on your order! 

We created this guide to walk you through the steps and differences between paying by paper check and electronic check, along with important information you should know. 


Check Processing Time

Inventory is only reserved after we have received your check. Then, we will hold your order for five business days after your bank clears the funds. The hold applies to all checks including, money orders, certified checks, and cashier’s checks.

For quicker turnaround overall, we recommend using eCheck. Because funds are processed immediately, your order will be reserved and shipped quicker than if you mailed a paper check.

After your check has cleared on the 5th business day, your order will be placed in the "processing" status and will be shipped based on lead times posted on the product page.


Please be aware that products with low stock or shipping directly from manufacturers can become backordered while your payment is in transit or processing. Any backordered items will be shipped as soon as they are available. Priority Shipping is not available on orders made by paper checks.


Paying with "eCheck"
