Services Provided by 360Connect

We do not guarantee the quality of the suppliers who receive and respond to your request(s). 360Connect is a conduit for matching buyers and suppliers. We are not responsible for any transaction that may occur between the buyer and/or buyer’s company and a 360Connect participating supplier/partner(s). 360Connect does not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of the information provided or the products and services rendered. The buyer should exercise as much caution and due diligence as would typically be exercised with any purchase of products or services. Should the buyer have a dispute with any supplier, it must be addressed directly with the supplier and not with 360Connect. Buyer hereby agrees to release 360Connect from any and all damages or claims arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes and transactions with suppliers.

Only a user authorized by the main contact of an account can authorize profile changes. 360Connect is not responsible for account discrepancies nor for incorrect profiles set-up under the direction of a supplier.
Supplier Payment Guidelines
The monthly billing cycle begins on the first day of the month (12:00am CST) and closes at the end of the day (11:59pm CST) on the last day of the month. 360Connect reserves the right to change any post sale payment terms to pre-paid payment terms as the need arises.
Credit Card Terms
Credit Card Terms Accounts are billed on the 1st day of the following month to the credit card on file. In the event the card transaction is unsuccessful;
- The account will be deactivated until cleared
- A $40 delinquent payment fee will be applied to the outstanding balance if (within one week) not reconciled by the 8th (in addition to NSF fees if applicable)
- Supplier is responsible for $35 NSF fee
- Any account not paid in full within 30 days of the due date will be turned over to our third party collections partner. Non-paying party will be responsible for any additional fees (determined by the size of the balance and collection costs incurred)
Please note: During the first billing cycle, the credit card on file will auto draft one time after a $500 balance is accumulated; the remaining balance will run as scheduled as outlined above.
In the event supplier revokes authorization to charge credit card or cancels services, supplier agrees that the balance occurred before this instance is to be run immediately and account will then be deactivated.
The invoice billing option is only currently available to suppliers who have signed an annual agreement. A monthly invoice is sent to the supplier on the 1st business day of the following month. Payment policies including delinquent payment fees are subject to the terms of supplier’s contract. For more information regarding contract agreements, please contact a 360Connect Account Manager. In the event a check is returned, supplier is responsible for the $35 insufficient funds fee.
Account balances are initiated and replenished in the form of a credit card pre-payment, electronic check or ACH bank transfer. A new authorization form must be completed for each change of payment. When the billing cycle closes, an updated balance summary will be sent on the 1st business day of the following month. If the account is not set up to auto-replenish, an additional notice will be sent when 25% of the original balance remains. The account will be paused or shut down once the balance reached $0. In the event a check is returned, supplier is responsible for the $35 insufficient funds fee.
Electronic Check Payments
Any payment made via electronic check is subject to a holding period (as determined by supplier’s financial institution). In the event a check is returned, supplier is responsible for the $35 insufficient funds fee. Once an electronic check is processed, if a refund is requested, it will be subject to a 30 day holding period.
Wire Transfer Payments

You may opt out of the service at any time by providing written notification of cancellation. Only the primary contact or name listed on the account may authorize the cancellation of services. Terms differ based on service agreement and any outstanding balance will immediately be charged to the credit card on file within 48 hours.
