Payment Types and Terms
For your convenience, we accept the following forms of payment:
1. Credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover)
2. Wire transfers
3. Institutional Purchase Orders (POs)
When making a payment, especially via wire transfers, always use the invoice and job numbers as reference numbers. Doing so would facilitate faster confirmation of your payment.
Credit Cards: Credit card payments are processed by PayPal, one of the largest credit card processing companies in the world using the same safe 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology that you find at your favorite online stores or local merchants. So you can be sure that all your personal contact details and financial information (e.g., credit card numbers and associated expiry dates) will be protected during the payment process.
Please note that PayPal may ask you to enroll for an Expanded Use Number (EUN). Processing of the EUN may take up to 3 to 4 business days.
After completing the editing work on your manuscript, we will email you an electronic invoice detailing the services we have performed, the amount due, and instructions on how to make payment via your credit card.
Upon receipt of your payment, we will send your edited manuscript (in Word format) and the editorial summary.
For initial payments in wire transfers, to initiate payment, we will contact you at least 2 days before the scheduled return of your edited manuscript. As part of this correspondence, we will provide you with an electronic invoice detailing all services performed and the amount due, and we will request that you provide us with all the banking information pertinent to your wire transfer. (Sending us a copy of the wire transfer would be ideal)
Upon receipt of the confirmation of your payment from our billing and collection department, we will send your edited manuscript (in Word format) plus an editorial summary.
Please note that should you decide to pay via wire transfer, you will also be expected to shoulder the bank fees (usually, US$20.00). (The amount on the invoices we issue does not cover bank fees.)
Institutional Purchase Orders (POs):
For payments made by your institution on your behalf, we require that a purchase order be either uploaded (via our PO submission web page available through your personal account on this site) or sent by fax at +632 851 7104.
After we have completed all work on your manuscript, we will send you an electronic invoice detailing all charges due. Payment of this invoice by your institution (through wire transfers) must be received by SPI Publisher Services within 15 business days from receipt of invoice.
Upon receipt of confirmation of your institution's payment from our billing and collection department, we will then send your edited manuscript (in Word format) and editorial summary.
