An invoice will be sent through Square for payment. Production on your order will begin once payment is authorized and received by Snaptron.

- Quotes do not include any additional costs for part qualification (PPAP), special packaging, or testing (FAIR) required by you. Snaptron reserves the right to quote these requirements separately upon request.

- Collections. In the event of past due invoices, Snaptron reserves the right to use the services of a collection agency to obtain payment for such invoices. Invoices reaching 90 days past due will result in the company being sent to collections. If unpaid invoices are sent to collections, this includes payment of all costs and/or attorney fees associated with the collection of past due invoices. Such companies will also no longer be allowed to purchase from Snaptron until all past dues invoices and collection fees are paid in full.
