Terms & Conditions
Prices and sources of supply must not be disclosed to outside persons, vendors, or any other non-member organization. Membership is based upon confidential pricing arranged with suppliers. Divulging this information with non-members will jeopardize your price advantage.

NASCOOP has no minimum order; however, minimums and order policies set by suppliers will apply.
Material will be invoiced at prices prevailing at time of shipment.
Unless specified otherwise all orders will ship FOB shipping point. Every effort will be used to provide a low cost and timely shipper; however NASCOOP reserves the right to ship by the carrier of its choice. NASCOOP recommends that members inspect shipments for damage prior to acceptance. Damage in transit or lost freight is the responsibility of the freight carrier. Claims should be made directly to the freight carrier. Ship by dates are provided based on the best available information at the time of order and are not guaranteed. When made aware NASCOOP will notify the member in any changes to the estimated ship date.
NASCOOP accepts major credit cards. Open credit is available on approved accounts only. Open account invoices are due and payable in net amount upon receipt. Payment is to be remitted to the address on the reverse. A late charge of 1.5% per month will be added to all accounts over sixty (60) days from date of invoice. A $40.00 fee will be charged for any check returned to us.
Purchases delivered to customers in jurisdictions where NASCOOP is legally obligated to collect sales tax will be assessed the applicable sales tax unless a valid sales tax exemption certificate is submitted prior to the placement of the order. NASCOOP reserves the right to collect sales tax on any transaction that the purchaser’s taxing jurisdiction has deemed taxable. For transactions that are taxable under the applicable sales/use tax of any city, state, provincial or federal agency, but for which NASCOOP is not legally obligated to collect such tax, the purchaser understands that it may be legally obligated to report and remit applicable tax due directly to the proper government agency.
