Paying with a Credit Card
Sequoia Appraisal now accepts Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit card payments for any transaction. You can use this option to pay for single appraisals, multiple orders or any of our other services.
Please click "Order Appraisal" button above to begin the process. You will be required to create an account with a User Name and Password.
How does it work?
When you place an order with Sequoia, either through this site or by email, just enter your credit card information into the Payment Information section of the order form by clicking on the "Order Appraisal" button above. When you submit the order, your payment data is sent – over a secure connection – along with the other information. The order process does confirm you’ve entered a valid credit card number, and prompts you to correct it if you made a mistake. However, your card typically won’t be charged until after the assignment has been completed.
Because your credit card information is sent along with your order, I don’t have to worry about making a mistake by re-typing anything. Your contact information is brought over from your account on my web site. Once we settle on a fee, I simply enter the amount in your account and then charge your card. Automatically, you’ll receive a transaction receipt via e-mail for your records.
Is it safe?
Of course! Sequoia's web site is protected by industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. This means that every sensitive communication between your computer and our web server is scrambled. So if any payment data gets illegally intercepted, it’s completely unreadable! You can be sure that paying electronically is just as safe as doing business anywhere else on the Internet!
Naturally, if you just prefer not to enter your credit card info online, you’re welcome to give Sequoia the card number over the phone. Or arrangements can be made to get a copy at the inspection of the property. Any credit card information will not be retained by Sequoia, unless requested otherwise, and will be immediately shredded once the card has been processed. We want to make sure we’re doing business in way that makes you comfortable.
If you have any questions about paying for services with a credit card, or any other payment option, please give Matt a call or send an e-mail message to Matt@SequoiaAppraisal.com.
