Modified on Thu, 21 Mar at 3:40 PM

Bargain Balloon accepts purchase orders, paying by check or ACH payments ‪from companies‪ or organizations (schools, non-profit groups, hospitals, nursing homes, and government) that qualify for check payments. Please open a support ticket to see if your company qualifies to pay with these methods 

To make sure your company or organization qualifies, please email us the following information:

  • Link to company or organization website
  • Billing address
  • Shipping address (if different from billing address)
  • Contact name for billing purposes


Credit Card or PayPal Payment

If your company qualifies, you can pay with a credit card over the phone. Please call 1-866-330-1272 and a customer service agent will assist you. You can also pay via PayPal online. Please let us know if this is your preference, and we will send you a PayPal money request to complete the payment.

Please place your order online, and choose the Pass Along option at checkout. This option will allow you to submit your order without entering credit card information (see additional details below).

Check or ACH Payment

To pay by check or ACH Payment please complete the following steps:

If you qualify to pay by check or ACH payment, we will invoice your school, organization, or company for the order and include a copy of your invoice with the shipped order.  We will also mail a copy to the billing address a few weeks after your order has shipped. 

Terms are Net 30 Days, and we can extend the terms for those schools or companies whose accounting departments make payments less frequently. We will not ship an order until an approved order is in our system along with any required documents. Please make sure to click the submit order button at the end of the checkout.

Step 1: Complete your order online, and choose the 'Pass Along' option as your payment method at the checkout (see image below). 

Once you choose the 'Pass Along' option, click 'Pay Now' to submit the order. We will then receive your order, the stock will be reserved, and you will be able to print a copy of your pending order to submit to your school or company for approval. 

Please Note: Pass Along orders are not shipped out until we receive the required documents (see step 2). 

Choosing the Pass Along option lets us know your intention to place an order and to look out for the required documents. Orders are immediately released to schools or companies that Bargain Balloons already has the required documents for on file– such as schools that have open purchase orders or permanent accounts.

Step 2: Faxing or emailing the required documents (Purchase Orders)

Bargain Balloons can invoice your school or company so you can pay by check. Your school or company must send us one of the following documents, or we will not be able to ship your order.

  1. Purchase Order for this order only: Fax to 805-357-5944 or open a support ticket and attach the document.
  2. Open Purchase Order: Fax 805-357-5944 or open a support ticket and attach the document. Open a P.O. –similar to a permanent account– that will allow us to ship current and future orders using the same purchase order.
  3. Open a Permanent Account: If you open a permanent account, you will no longer have to fax us for every order placed. We will release your order to ship based on your school or company having a permanent account on file and your account being in good standing. Fax to 805-357-5944 with the following information to open a permanent account.
    • On school or company letterhead, a letter requesting to open a permanent account.
    • The name and phone number of the person who is authorizing the opening of the permanent account.
    • The billing address and the shipping address.
  4. No Purchase Order:If your school or company does not use purchase orders fax to 805-357-5944 or open a support ticket with the following information.
    • On school or company letterhead, the name and phone number of the person who has authorized the purchase
    • Billing Address and the Shipping Address.

If you do not receive a tracking number for your order within 1-2 business days of faxing or emailing your documents– please follow up to make sure we received your documents. You can always call or email us the same day you send your documents to make sure all documents are processed correctly and quickly.

Our goal is always to ship your order as soon as possible. If you need us to fill in the documentation please fax us at 805-357-5944 or open a support ticket.
