Corporations, government offices and educational institutions often have purchasing systems that are driven by purchase orders and invoices in order to issue payment. In other words, many organizations prefer or need to be invoiced for the items they order and will pay at a later date. We at CFS want to make the ordering processing as easy as possible for all of our customers, so we do offer accounts with invoiced terms.
Private companies and corporations simply need to complete a very easy process:
- Fill out the CFS Credit Account Application – making sure to list at least 3 credit references (w/fax numbers) that they currently have credit terms with. To get a copy of the CFS Credit Application – click here.
- Wait for a response from CFS – once we hear back from the references with acceptable feedback on payment history, we send out a letter of approval.
From that point on orders can be placed and paid for after a net 15 or 30 day term.
Government offices (federal, state or city) and accredited educational institutions have an even simpler process:
- Just place an order – that’s it. CFS does not require a pre-approved credit application process for these organizations.
When ordering online, there is no account number needed – the organization name simply needs to be entered. During the checkout process Purchase Order can be selected as the payment method – and a purchase order number is not needed.* The same goes for orders that are phoned in.
Fax, email and postal mail can also be used to order – all that we ask is that we get a copy of the order requisition or a purchase order.
*Purchase order numbers are not necessary unless the organizations’ accounts payable department requires them to issue payment. See CFS’ complete billing/payment details.
This is just one example of how CFS tries to make order binding supplies and bindery equipment easy for all of our customers. Do you have a suggestion on how we can make this process easier for you – we’d love to hear it in the comments below. We’re always looking for ways to improve.
