What is the MSRP?

The MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) is the selling price we suggest you could offer in a retail store. This price is an estimate only. Since retail prices vary widely from store to store and from one region to another, it is impossible to establish prices on particular items that would be accurate on a nationwide basis. Every effort has been made to suggest prices that are both moderate and reasonable. The actual retail price would depend on your particular situation, and, in many instances, may be higher. Before you log into our website, you will only see the MSRP. After you are logged in, you will see the wholesale price and the MSRP displayed

Why don’t you ask for the credit card security code at the time I place my order?

Because the shipping costs for our products are calculated individually by order and vary based on volume, distance, shipping preferences of our customers, etc., the web order is considered incomplete until the shipping costs are added manually by our office. Because we do not have a total price for your purchase at Check Out, we are not allowed by law to ask for a security code as part of the order process.

Due to increased security concerns over credit card fraud and identity theft, you will be asked to provide us additional credit card information (your 3 digit code from the back of your credit card). We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. To minimize inconvenience to you, you may reply to the order confirmation email with the three-digit number on the reverse side of your card, on the right side where you signed your card. You will avoid our having to telephone you for this information at an inconvenient time, and we will be able to process your order more quickly.

We also notify you when the item arrives to confirm that you still wish to purchase this item. Once these items arrive, they often sell quickly. By allowing you to pre-order them without any cost to you, you will be assured that they will be available for you to purchase.

When it is impossible to ship your order complete, the balance will automatically be backordered and shipped with your next order. If you do not want us to ship any back orders, please tell us at the time of your order.
