Published prices are generally exclusive of shipping costs and federal, state, and local taxes of any nature. All taxes applicable to products ordered shall be paid by Buyer except when Buyer provides Mainstream Engineering Corporation with a recognized tax exemption certificate. Taxes will be charged and are payable until a valid tax exemption certificate is on file. When shipping costs are included in the price, this fact will be clearly stated as “FOB Origin.”
Payment for the first order is to be made at the time of order (prepaid) by either check, MasterCard, or VISA credit card. Normal terms for customers with approved credit are 2%/10, net/30 from the invoice date. A finance charge of 1.5% per month is assessed on all amounts not paid within 30 days of the invoice date. The finance charge becomes a part of the repayment program and must be paid before the account is returned to good standing. Overdue and delinquent account balances are subject to being placed for collection, and Buyer shall pay all expenses incurred including collection fees, court costs, and reasonable attorneys’ fees. This shall apply at all levels: trial, appellate, or bankruptcy court. In the event Buyer’s account is overdue, Buyer agrees that Mainstream Engineering Corporation may offset the account balance or any portion thereof against any funds due Buyer by Mainstream Engineering Corporation irrespective of whether the amounts arise out of the same transaction. Buyer will also be in default if any term of any other agreement with Mainstream Engineering Corporation executed by Buyer is violated.
Invoices are past due if not paid within invoice terms. Past due accounts will be placed on credit hold and are subject to shipping delays until the account is brought current. Accounts with an unpaid balance beyond 90 days past due will be turned over to a collection agency for collection. Buyer is responsible for all unpaid balances, accumulated finance charges, and collection costs incurred by Mainstream Engineering Corporation in the effort to collect the past due amount.
In the event Buyer submits a purchase order with written terms at variance or in conflict with the terms and conditions of sale contained herein, such purchase order terms shall have no effect to the extent that they conflict, and Mainstream Engineering Corporation “Terms and Conditions of Sale” shall prevail.
Deliveries shall be subject to and contingent upon: (1) Timely receipt of order by Mainstream Engineering Corporation and (2) Buyer qualification of credit requirements. Mainstream Engineering Corporation shall not be liable for failure to meet required delivery due to credit clearance requirements or to causes beyond its control, including, without limitation, strikes and other labor difficulty, riot, war, fire, delay or default of common carrier, or other delays beyond Mainstream Engineering Corporation’s reasonable control.
When merchandise is shipped FOB origin, the risk of loss due to damage or shortage or non-delivery due to carrier fault lies with the Buyer. All claims for damage or shortages should be made by Buyer upon receipt of material and filed with the carrier handling the shipment. Claims stemming from discrepancies between invoice descriptions or quantities and actual product received by buyer must be submitted to Mainstream Engineering Corporation in writing within three (3) days of the invoice date. Any such claim not presented within the time limit specified will be waived, and actual delivery of invoiced descriptions or quantities will be conclusively presumed. If Buyer disputes delivery of merchandise, Buyer may, within three (3) days from date of invoice, submit a written request to Mainstream Engineering Corporation for a copy of the carrier’s proof of delivery. Failure by Buyer to request such proof of delivery within three (3) days will result in a waiver of Buyer’s right to raise the issue of delivery, and thereafter delivery will be conclusively presumed.
