We Recommend You Use A Credit Card If Paying Online & Don't Have An Accommodation Supplies Trade Account
All cards are secure, especially when using them to pay online for your cleaning supplies and inventory here but we recommend if you have a credit card use this over a debit card. Why? Credit cards offer you more consumer protection, which varies depending on your card, so contact them to find out the protection you are entitled to when paying for your cleaning supplies and inventory online.
