Purchase Order Policy
Swyft Robotics W-9
Here is is the link to the W-9 Form
Purchase Order Terms
During sales or special offers, the fully signed and approved PO must be uploaded to the order while the sales or special offer is still active to be accepted. POs uploaded for orders containing special offers after the offer has ended will either be edited to reflect standard pricing or will be declined by Swyft Robotics.
Swyft Robotics accepts Purchase orders from schools in the USA. Purchase orders from businesses and other non-profits may require a credit check. Swyft Robotics reserves the right to decline POs at any time.
There is a $125 minimum order amount for POs from schools and robotics teams, and a $500 minimum order amount for POs from businesses.
Standard Payment terms are NET 30.
POs must be processed by our accounting department before being released to our shipping queue. Typical processing time for POs is 1-2 business days if all items are in stock. Processing time can be delayed slightly during particularly busy times of year.
You will receive an email when your PO has been processed and released to the shipping queue.
If Expedited Shipping is selected, our pre-shipment processing time of 1-2 business days will still apply. Expected shipping speed estimates for Expedited Shipments are accurate starting the day after the PO has been processed.
Failure to pay or late payment of invoices may result in future POs from a particular school or district being declined.
Any orders placed using “Purchase Order” as the payment method must be completed (payment or PO received by Swyft Robotics) within 30 days. Orders not completed within 30 days will be cancelled.
