Invoicing and Payment
Invoicing and payment terms are determined based on applicable state and federal law, and the Customer’s credit status with Company and delinquency status. Company will inform Customer of payment terms in an applicable order confirmation and Customer agrees to comply with such terms. Customer agrees that the default obligation to issue payment in good funds to Company is that payment is due immediately upon delivery of each Product and such obligation is permanent and not cancellable unless a return is both specifically allowed by law and meets Company’s return criteria.

The Company does not offer cash on delivery (“COD”) terms.

The parties consent to use Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) transactions initiated by Company to debit the designated bank accounts of Customer to pay for Products ordered by Customer from Company. In such case, Customer hereby provides authorization for individual ACH transactions to be initiated by Company for Product orders made through the Website.
Customer hereby authorizes Company to make debit and/or credit instructions for the purchase of Products to any bank account for which Customer provides information to Company (the “Authorized Accounts”) by AEP or EFT; and directs that all such debit and/or credit instructions be made to the Authorized Accounts.

Applicable returned items fees will apply, and the maximum service charge as allowed by applicable law will be assessed on returned payments.

Customer’s account will be “delinquent” if it has not paid its invoice in full for 60 days or more.

The Company will comply with all applicable laws concerning payment matters including those that require reporting payment

problems to the applicable state liquor authority or other state agencies, fines, interest, penalties, or termination of Customer’s account with Company.

All accounts that are “delinquent” as defined above are subject to a service charge of 1½% per month, at 18% per annum. Any account that is beyond 75 days delinquent will be placed with attorneys for collection.

A 1% cash discount will be allowed for payment of each invoice received by the Company within 10 days of the specified date of delivery of the merchandise, provided that the Customer’s account is not “delinquent” and that no invoice is outstanding with the Company in excess of 60 days.

A 1% discount will be allowed on all items (unless noted) on the sole condition that the merchandise specified by the invoice for such items be picked up at the Company between 10:00A.M. and 4:00P.M. on any Monday through Friday (excluding holidays of any week), and that the vehicle used to pick up such merchandise be properly licensed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission, provided that the Customer’s account is not “delinquent” and that no invoice is outstanding with the Company in excess of 60 days.
For all transactions, Customer agrees that your bank may assess its customary per-check or item-handling charge, if any. Customer also agrees to pay a service charge of $75.00 for each dishonored check, draft, or ACH to reimburse the Company for any costs of collection.
