Credit and Debit Cards

We accept MasterCard, VISA, Discover and American Express. Customer/cardholder address and related information are verified with your issuing bank before your order is shipped. Some restrictions may apply.


As part of our credit/debit card security process and to maintain our PCI security standards compliance, Rio Grande verifies the credit or debit card number used. This is done through a one-time pre-authorization of $1 to your account. The pre-authorization is normally removed by your bank within 2–3 business days. It is not a charge, though it may temporarily reduce your available credit by $1. If you have any questions or concerns about the validity of a Rio Grande charge you see on your account, please call us at 800-396-9895.



Rio Grande offers PayPal Express Checkout for orders placed online that do not contain backordered items. (If your order includes backordered items, the PayPal option is not shown at checkout.)

If, due to metal market price fluctuations or shipping recalculation, your order total is either 15% or $75 greater than the amount processed by PayPal, a Rio Grande accounting agent will contact you. 


Prepaid Orders
 Certified funds such as money orders or cashier's checks are recommended for prepaid orders. To expedite service, please use a bank wire transfer. Please allow for price fluctuations and include shipping costs.

 If the quoted shipping cost is more than the actual cost, we will credit your account or issue a refund, whichever you prefer. If you send a check with your order, the check must include your name, address and daytime phone number. This information will be verified with your bank.  Some restrictions may apply.
