Accepted Forms of Payment
Shopping with us is easy and secure every step of the way. For your convenience we accept the following forms of payment:

- Merchandise Credits (Redeemable in-store only at this time.)
Credit Card Purchases When you place an order, ems.com contacts your issuing bank to confirm the validity of the payment method. At this time, your bank reserves the funds until your order ships or the authorization expires. Your bank account may show the charge as “pending” or “authorized” at this stage. The actual charge will take place when your order ships. If you have multiple items in your order, you may see separate charges for some or all of your order. This is because we may ship your order from multiple locations, and charge you only for the portion of your order that ships. Any applicable shipping charges will be charged to your order when the first item ships.
Payment timing through PayPal may vary based on your individual PayPal account. Please login to your PayPal account to view their policy directly.
