Credit cards are generally charged only at the time we ship the item or items to you.

However we may “pre-authorize” your order amount with your card issuer at the time you place the order. This may prompt an “authorization hold” on your card. For debit cards, which draw on funds in a bank account, this means the amount of your purchase remains in your account but is no longer available to you. For credit cards, the charge is not processed but the amount may be deducted from your available line of credit. Your credit or debit card will then be charged at the time we ship your items to you.

It can typically take three to seven days for the purchase amount to clear your account. Your bank controls the timing of authorizations and payments from your account; for details please check with your bank.

We also accept payment via PayPal. Please read the PayPal User Agreement for important information.

We also accept payment via check & money order. Orders paid via either method will be shipped out after the payment clears. In cases of insufficient funds, stop payments, fraudulent payments or other similar issues, any and all associated fees are the responsibility of the customer.

Prices and availability of products and services are subject to change without notice. Errors will be corrected where discovered, and Allied International reserves the right to revoke any stated offer and to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions including after an order has been submitted and whether or not the order has been confirmed and your payment charged. If your payment has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, Allied International will issue a credit to your payment method in the amount of the charge. Individual bank policies will dictate when this amount is credited to your account. If you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, you may return it in accordance with Allied International's Return Policy.
