Credit Card:  For US orders only, we accept Visa/MasterCard/Discover/AMEX by phone and fax.  Please remember to include the following information:  Name on Card, Billing Address for Card, Shipping Address (if different), Email Address, Card Type, Card Number, Expire Date, phone number, and the 3 digit verification number on the back of Visa/Discover/MasterCard, or the 4 digit verification number on the front of AMEX cards.  We are sorry, but we cannot accept credit card orders from outside the US, at this time.

To submit a secure online payment using Paypal, send your payment to: sales@alpineastro.com .   In the Paypal message to seller field (or item/product name field), simply indicate the items you wish to order (you can send us a separate email as well with order details, if you wish).   Please remember to also add in the additional amount needed for shipping (see the table below) - the shipping charge must be added into the total, not as a separate item. 

We will respond by email when we receive your payment, and indicate our expected ship date.  Due to the recent increase in spam and viruses, we have found some spam blockers aggressively cull or block valid emails.   If you do not receive an order confirmation from us within 2 days, please check back with us, it is possible that filtering has omitted our replies.

Checks: For mail orders, please send to the address listed above.  Money orders or bank checks are preferred, but personal checks are fine (please allow 5 additional business days for personal checks to clear).  All checks must be drawn in US$.
