Payment Terms

The following forms of payment are accepted by Hurst Chemical Company:

1. Credit Cards Accepted: Visa, MasterCard and American Express. On first orders only, charge card orders must be shipped to the billing address of the cardholder or a bank verified alternate address! No Exceptions!

We do this to protect our Customers and ourselves. There is a significant amount of credit card fraud on electronic purchases every year. By only shipping to an address that we can verify as being yours, we add an additional level of security to your purchase. Once we have shipped to you at your billing address, an alternative ship to address is acceptable for future purchases.

All charge card orders are billed within 24 hours from receipt of order.

2. Prepayment: Orders may be prepaid with certified funds or money order payable to Hurst Chemical. You may also prepay with a personal/company check, but the shipment will be delayed until the check clears, unless prior authorization has been received. Please be sure your name, address and telephone number appear on the check and/or the accompanying written order.

3. Wire Transfer: All wire transfers within the U.S. are subject to a $35.00 wire transfer fee. Be sure to include this fee in your transfer along with any and all additional bank fees-you are responsible for all bank charges.


4. State Sales Tax may apply if merchandise ordered is shipped to a California location. What is the Security Code? It is an important new security feature that now appears on the back of all Visa, MasterCard, and Discover, and on the front of American Express cards. This new code is a three or four-digit number, which provides a cryptographic check of the information, embossed on the card.

The Security Code helps validate that the customer placing the order actually has the credit card in his/her possession, and that the credit/debit card account is legitimate.

How does my Security Code protect me?
The security code is only printed on the card, and it is not contained in the magnetic stripe information nor does it appear on sales receipts or billing statements – you must have the card in your possession in order to use this code.

Card Security Codes are not raised, so they are not scanned into standard credit card readers. In theory, these numbers are only visible to you. When you give your card Security Code to a merchant, you assist the merchant in verifying that you, the cardholder, are placing the order.

Do I have to enter the Security Code?
YES, you must enter the code. Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express now require Internet sales to obtain the Security Code for all cards in order for this transaction to be accepted and processes. You must enter this code. This is done for your protection.

Where can I find the Security Code? Visa, MasterCard and Discover Users: Flip your card over and look at the signature box. You should see either the entire 16-digit credit card number or just the last four digits followed by a special 3-digit code. This 3-digit code is your Card Security Code. American Express Users should look for the 4-digit code printed on the front of your card just above and to the right of your main credit card number. This 4-digit code is your Card Security Code.
