If a shipment arrives and the charges for that shipment will put your account over your credit limit you must make arrangements to pay the amount over your credit limit before we can release the shipment on your behalf. Your credit limit will be reviewed periodically to ensure that it is meeting your needs.

Disputes

If you disagree with the charges on an invoice you must notify Summit immediately of the disagreement. Our Accounts Receivable department will ensure that any problems are dealt with upon being notified. They may grant permission for partial payment of the invoice until the dispute is settled.

Interest on Overdue Accounts

Interest will be charged on all invoices for which payment has not been received within the agreed upon terms. The rate charged will be one and a half percent (1 1/2%) per month or eighteen percent (18%) per annum calculated on a daily basis.
