Payment Methods

Accepted Payment Methods
Our online prices are listed in U.S. currency.

However, not all payment methods are available for all types of merchandise. Click on any tab below for more information about that payment option.

Sales Tax Changes
Due to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on June 21, 2018 in the South Dakota vs Wayfair case we are now legally required to collect and remit sales tax for states that we have not charged sales tax in the past. Previously, internet retailers were required to collect/remit tax only in those states where they had a physical location. The Wayfair ruling dictates that purchases from all online retailers be subject to taxes determined by your state and/or local municipality. In accordance with this ruling, applicable taxes will be automatically added to your shopping cart’s subtotal. Learn more.
