Payments

Overview

Payment shall be in the currency stated on Telematics' quotation (if provided) and invoice. In the event Customer has credit terms with Telematic, and where an order contains multiple quantities of Products, each Product will be invoiced when shipped.

Telematic accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, wire transfers and checks. Wire transfers are acceptable for Customers with credit terms. Orders are subject to customs duties and/or brokerage fees. Telematic requires full payment prior to shipment, unless credit terms have been expressly granted.

If a credit card is being used for a transaction, Telematic may obtain preapproval for an amount up to the amount of the order. Billing normally occurs at the time of or shortly after your order transaction is processed. When making purchases, credits are used first; your credit card or your account, if applicable, is then charged for any remaining balance. Credit card payments may incur a processing fee of 2.5% (inclusive of taxes) of the total payment amount. 

The Telematic Online Store accepts a variety of payment methods. Click on a payment method on the right to find out more.

Credit Cards

Troubleshooting credit card payment errors

  • For new or recently reissued cards, the card needs to be activated first.
  • Check that the card details entered are correct, the card type (VISA, MasterCard, American Express), card number and the expiration date.
  • Remove any dashes or spaces for the card number.
  • If you do not have sufficient credit limit, please check with your card issuer.
  • If everything seems to be correct, contact your card issuer. Your card issuer may need to verify with you before they authorize your purchase.

When Telematic Charges Your Account

Telematic charges your account once you place your order. If your order contains multiple items and they ship at different times, you may see multiple charges on your credit card statement.

If you cancel your order before it has been billed, any authorizations placed on your credit card account can take up to 30 days to reverse, depending on the credit card issuer. Contact your financial institution for their specific timeframes.

The security of Telematic Store servers is closely monitored to prevent any unauthorized disclosure or use of credit card numbers and to protect the confidentiality of your personal information. The Telematic Store uses the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) industry standard.

When will I be invoiced for my order?

When your order is placed, Telematic will send you an invoice reflecting the cost of your order. If you ordered more than one item and they ship at different times, there may be multiple invoices.

Can I change my billing address?

Your billing address is the registered address that your credit card company holds. Please ensure that your billing address is correct at the time of placing your order. Once your order has been accepted by Telematic your billing address cannot be changed as it would have already been authorized by your credit card company.

Electronic Funds Transfer - EFT

Telematic prefers to receive account payments electronically. With our EFT Payment Plan, Telematic emails you an invoice notifying you of the funds being due as per your account terms; your bank transfers the amount of the invoice from your checking account to the specified Telematic account. Each payment is shown on your monthly bank statement. At Telematic we sincerely appreciate working with corporations that endeavor to reduce the amount of paper-based transactions.

Telematic may change credit or payment terms at any time when, in Telematics' opinion, Customer’s financial condition, previous payment record, or the nature of Customer’s relationship with Telematic so warrants. Telematic may discontinue performance if Customer fails to pay any sum due, or fails to perform under this or any other Telematic agreement if, after ten (10) days written notice, the failure has not been cured.
