For your security and privacy, KeepTheTime does not accept payments over the phone. Although some watches maybe limited to the type of payment method you can use, we have many options to get your order paid for so we can ship quickly.
Credit Cards – We accept credit cards for items under $10,000. We use PayPal to process our credit card payments, so we never actually see your payment details. You can use all major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, etc.
PayPal – You can use your credit card via PayPal, or you can pay straight from your PayPal account. Please note that we can only ship to the confirmed address on your PayPal account.
Bank Transfer – When you pay with bank transfer, we don’t have to pay credit card processing fees. For that reason, bank transfer orders get an automatic discount during the checkout process. International orders over $2,000 must pay with bank transfer. USA orders over $10,000 must pay via bank transfer. Also known as wire transfers, bank transfer orders get priority and an automatic upgrade to overnight delivery.
Check/Money Order – Yes, we are one of the last remaining companies that are willing to accept paper payments. We’ll accept personal checks for certain items, and cashier’s checks or money orders for most others. As with bank transfer, this payment method also qualifies for a discount. We will ship your order within 1-3 days of the check clearing and being 100% available in our account.
Trades – Don’t want to spend money on a new watch? Trade your old timepiece for something you’ll actually wear. We can do partial trades or full trades, depending on what it is. Just keep in mind that KeepTheTime is a business, and although we love watches, there’s no such thing as an even trade. We spend time and money to inspect, clean, photograph and market each piece.
Payment Plan Options – On many watches, we’re willing to accept layaway or payments. We usually ask for up to 3 checks. The first being a 50% down-payment and the other two post-dated with the balance split into two payments. We will cash the checks as dated and confirm with you before depositing them. Once the third check clears, we will ship your watch. We do ask that all payment plans are closed out before the year ends for accounting purposes. There is no interest charged, but please note that if you were to change your mind, the payments are non-refundable and turn into store credit.
Fraud Prevention – Due to the nature and high value of the luxury products we sell, we reserve the right to limit payment method options for certain watches. We may also require additional information to process the order. If the customer does not want to provide the requested information, or if the transaction is deemed fraudulent, we reserve the right to cancel the order and the customer’s account.
