Purchasing FAQ

What forms of payment do you accept?

How do I get an invoice from you to get a purchase order started?
The quickest way to get an invoice is to place an order online here. The order form will prompt you for everything that we need to generate an invoice. You will receive the invoice within 24 hours of submitting your order.

If you require a different payment arrangement, please contact us.

What if I don’t have enough time to get a purchase order before band camp starts?
When purchasing our products, you have the option to defer payment by signing the UDB Contract. If you choose that option on the order form, you will be required to provide the name and email address of an additional school/ensemble representative.

Once your order is submitted, you will receive a digital contract via DocuSign that you and the secondary representative will sign. Once we receive the signed contract, we will put your order into production and you will have 30 days to pay for your products.

Can I pay up front with a credit card?
If you are purchasing UDBapp licenses, yes. If you are purchasing Ultimate Dot Books, Ultimate Drill Books, or Ultimate Director’s Books, you are required to defer payment with the UDB Contract. The UDB Contract allows us to begin production of your books as quickly as possible while ensuring that we charge the correct amount for shipping.

Yes! You can defer payment by up to 30 days with the UDB Contract. If you need more time, please contact us and we’ll be happy to work with you.
