Non-Profits, Governmental Agencies and other exempt organizations

If you are Non-Profit organization based out of any state within the United States the state guidelines require us to complete funds verification.

To complete the funds verification process you can share a copy of your business credit card with only the last 4 digits, name and expiry date visible. Alternatively, you can share a PO if you are ready to place an order and we can use that for your funds verification.

  • If you are a Federal Government Department that will be using a GSA credit card to place all future orders, please enter the GSA credit card information in the check-out process and all future orders will automatically be tax exempt.
  • We advise you use the same card you are submitting for your verification to complete your first purchase.
