At the time an application is submitted, it is requested that 2 to 3 trade references be provided along with a bank reference as mentioned above.

How long does the application process take?
For credit card terms, the process can take anywhere from 24-48 hours to activate for purchase.  COD and Net accounts take more time to process as we rely on the response of your references.  Since COD and Net Term accounts may take longer, we can always offer credit card terms in the interim so orders can still be fulfilled without delay.
