Payment Terms and Conditions

US $ Funds.

Payment Method: Bank wire, Cashiers Check, Company Check, and Money Order. First money is is first product out.  We do not hold batteries or add batteries to a run on promised money.

Rathbone Energy 143 Old Huff Hollow Road, Newport, TN 37821

  • Check and Money Orders: Send with your order. 

  • Cashier's Check and Money Orders: Because of Fraud, the banks hold these funds for Three (3) banking business days.

  • Company and Personal Checks:  The banks hold these funds for Ten (10) banking business days.

  • Bank Wire:  Upon request we will send you the required bank information with your sales contract.  Immediate access.

  • The bank wire, cashiers/company check has been NO problem.  Like always and with all of us, either you have it or you do not.  After little bush, dick, and their evil doers who are all still active in the background, most are hurting.

  January 2008 - April 2008:  Extreme Credit Card Charge Backs in the 1st quarter 08, by New Clients who did receive their merchandise in the 4th quarter 07.  Absolutely NO support from our merchant provider, AMEX, VISA or our bank at that time, Wachovia.  Because of the support of our credit card vendors We will NEVER again accept credit cards.  

Net Terms: I could sell lots of batteries on net terms but when it is not paid, which was the norm, it was a lost sale and lost inventory.  I am still trying to collect from a $1,400.00 PAG Pulsar from March 2008.  He wanted to "try it" first.  My policy was NO, but the girls shipped it anyway.  And then for a self-financed business there are the mass amount of bankruptcies to deal with so no more terms.
 
Credit Cards: I lost $14,000.00 in Charge Back money, $1,400.00 in related NSF's, the inventory and labor in the 1st quarter of 2008 and this started a domino effect that created mass chaos on us and or banking accounts and our relationships with vendors and clients.  They would do the movie or production or special shoot and three to four months later would claim they did not receive the batteries.  After supplying signed credit card authorization forms, signed sales contracts, signed delivery confirmations, and the merchant providers already knowing our credit card machines would not process unless the ship to address, credit card number, and 3 pin security number matched.  I am done with credit card users and merchant account suppliers. 
 
As I said, the economic events were already showing themselves before it hit the news.  Today, most of my client base has a combination of reduced credit lines, increased interest rates, and cut credit lines.  So, their credit cards are of little effect.  Besides, AMEX, MC/VISA, and PayPal took up to 5% off the top, including freight charges.
 
For the cash paying client who did not plan ahead, this may hurt somewhat but they cannot ignore Rathbone upgrade quality for generic pricing. 
 
For the cash paying client who has planned ahead, it has not been an issue anyway PLUS they get Rathbone upgrade quality for generic pricing. 
 
For Both, the client who has not planned ahead and the one who did plan ahead, This is the reason for the second "WHY I am supplying my circuit guts and the Best Available Panasonic, Sanyo, and LG lithium ion battery cells for the price of generic packs and "Brand Name" Economy and Chinese Cells. 
 
You get my quality for a price lower than the cheap stuff.  My margins are extremely low.

03-17-2008: We had a problem with less than stand up clients in 1 the early 90's recession.  We have recently had a much larger problem with less than stand up clients in the current Depression.  The above paperwork is because of a few of your colleagues and I cannot request of one and not all.

  1. CREDIT CARD CHARGE BACKS: CREDIT CARD CHARGE BACKS ARE IN EFFECT A NON SUFFICIENT FUNDS CHECK CAUSING FINANCIAL CHAOS:

  2. AMEX, MASTER CARD, and VISA WILL CHARGE YOU EXPENSIVE FEES FOR FRIVOLOUS CREDIT CARD CHARGE BACKS.

  3. We make every effort to make all clients aware that even though we immediately start the work on your custom manufactured battery packs there is always the potential for unforeseen delays.  Very, very occasionally a client will threaten a chargeback if he / she is not placed in front of others or we cannot perform magic and blow away unforeseen events.  Actually, most of these very few are simply denying delivery and attempting to get free merchandise.

  4.  Charge backs were an issue in the 1994 recession and are now again in 2008 becoming an issue that must be controlled.  Charge backs effect our business in a very, very negative manner and can disable us from doing business. 

  5. Client understands that any credit card chargeback fees against Rathbone Energy, Inc. regarding said client purchase orders / sales orders will incur a minimum $100.00 fee per occurrence.  In addition, client responsible for credit card chargeback will be charged by Rathbone Energy, Inc., for any and all expenses including but not limited to bank fees, NSF fees, vendor return check fees, or any other fees incurred by Rathbone Energy, Inc., as a result of a client credit card chargeback. NO EXCEPTIONS.

  6. What Could Other Fees include:

    1. Suppose your chargeback caused one of our credit card payments to bounce and our credit card issuer raised our interest fees.

    2. Suppose your chargeback caused one of our vendor checks to bounce and we then had to start prepaying $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 per order for our inventory.

    3. Someone else has to wait longer on their battery pack because you interrupted the financial flow of inventory

  7. If this is unacceptable client may send personal or company check before their product is placed in line for the custom manufacture rebuilding or recelling procedure.  If we continue to be stolen from, receive no support from the merchant providers, and are forced to continue using legal council, we will stop accepting credit card payments all together.

  8. Delivery Signature IS required

We are not a giant company and cannot be a free rental house on product.
