Payment Methods

Credit Card
You may pay by credit card no matter which ordering method you use (Internet or phone). At the time your order is placed, Planar obtains a pre-approval from the credit card company for the amount of the order. Credit card billing occurs when your order ships. The Planar Store accepts Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards.

We are unable to accept credit cards issued by banks outside of the United States.

Debit cards and check cards have daily spending limits that may cause a delay in the processing of your order.

Credit Card Security Codes

The Planar Store requires the credit card security code for your card for any telephone or online purchase. The credit card security code is an individual three- or four-digit number specific to your credit card that may be printed on the face of your card above the embossed account number (if American Express), or on the back of your card, on the signature panel (if Visa, or MasterCard). Asking for and confirming your credit card's security code helps validate that you - and only you - are in the possession of your credit card and protects you from unauthorized use of your account.

Sales Tax

Planar Online Store purchases will include sales tax based on your shipping address and the sales tax rate in effect at the time your order is placed. If you phone in your order, the Planar Store sales representative will provide an estimated dollar total of your order including tax and any applicable shipping charges at the time you place your order. If the sales tax rate for the state to which your order is being shipped changes before the product is shipped, the rate in effect at the time your order ships from our warehouse will apply. The proof of purchase that Planar mails to you will include any applicable sales tax.
