Payment

Mide is committed to making it simple and efficient for our customers to order our products.  No RFQs (all pricing is listed right there on the website), no complicated forms to fill out, just place an order like you would through any e-commerce store. Mide accepts payment via credit card, bank transfers, and purchase orders (for orders over $2,000 and with approved credit).

Credit Cards

Our website accepts credit card orders through Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. All orders are compliant with the Payment Card Industry ( PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). We can split orders up if needed to be under your company's credit card limit.

Purchase Orders

We generally only accept purchase orders for orders over $2,000. Please contact us if you need to pay via a purchase order, we will ask for a credit application.  Some customers may need Mide's W9 to set us up as an approved supplier in their system.

Bank Transfers

Midé accepts wire transfers for both domestic and international customers. The  domestic wire instructions are hereinternational wire instructions are available here. Please reply to your order confirmation when you have transferred the funds so our shipping department can look for the transfer to be finalized in our bank account. We get a large number of transfers so it's important to let us know when the transfers are made for each order. Midé will not ship any product until we have confirmed that the appropriate funds have been received by our bank.

Note that international bank transfers can't go directly to Midé's bank account, it needs to be routed through JP Morgan Chase. Therefore it is important to enter all the bank information for your international transfer. You may need to contact your bank directly because not all standard bank transfer forms include all the necessary fields (receiving bank information, beneficiary bank information, and Midé's account number). Please also ensure to account for currency conversion rates when transferring from an international bank account.

Tax

There will be no sales tax charged unless your company is based in Massachusetts. If so, there will be a 6.25% tax applied at checkout.


Samples & Discounts

A common question we receive is if a customer can have a trial unit to borrow or evaluate before purchasing. We understand the reasoning and we considered offering this service but ultimately decided against it due to logistical issues it presented.  We do offer full refunds if/when the product does not meet your expectations or work for your application, assuming the unit is not damaged.

We offer quantity based discounts for every piezo. We do not offer discounts to distributors, non-profits, students, sales representatives, etc., other than the previously specified volume pricing. However, we do not restrict the resale price of our units.

Shipping Address

Please note that we are limited to 35 characters per line of your shipping address. Use this simple HTML file to modify your shipping address appropriately to fit within the required 35 characters, otherwise, our fulfillment team will just cut off the end of the address line which may result in an invalid or unknown address.


Distributors

If you would like to save time with your order by using a distributor that has our products in stock, and with whom you may already have an existing account for easy payment, we use one distributor.

Keep in mind that this distributor will have higher pricing than we do.  This is because they receive the same pricing that everyone else does on our website, and they sell for a higher price to meet their required margin.


FAQ

When will your order ship?

We ship most orders within 1 or 2 business days if the product is in stock. We typically have about 5 units of each “base” variant in stock at all times. When a product is not in stock, the lead time is typically 5 business days.

How much will shipping cost?

The best way to determine your shipping costs is to place the desired products into our online shopping cart. Proceed through the screen where address information is entered. You can review various shipping options and costs before actually placing an order. We offer to ship via UPS, FedEx, and DHL. You will be able to choose your shipping method at checkout. Once your order has shipped you will receive tracking information. 

Can I use my own shipping account or service?

Some customers likely have their own FedEx or UPS account that they prefer to use for shipping.  We do not allow for billing one's own shipping account unless the order is being paid via a PO (which we only accept for orders over $2,000 and after running a credit check).  Please contact us for more information.
