Medline at Home, Frequently Asked Questions
How do I change my account’s default billing and shipping addresses?
In “My Account” the system appears to be forcing the “Default Billing Address” and the “Default Shipping Address” to be the same. So if you change one the other also changes.
Please click on “Address Book” or “Manage Addresses” and you will be able to add “Additional Address Entries” using the “Add New Address” button. During Checkout on the “Shipping” page the “Default Billing/Shipping Address” and “Additional Addresses” are presented for your “Shipping Address”. Once confirmed and you are moved to the “Payment” page you will then need to uncheck “My billing and shipping address are the same.” This will provide a dropdown with all “Address Book Addresses” and you can select from those or provide a new address.
You can set up a separate" Billing and Shipping address in the cart, but you can’t set it in the “My Account” addresses section.
This can be very confusing and we apologize for this inconvenience. We are working to resolve this issue.
How will my credit card be authorized and charged?
When you place an order, our company contacts the issuing bank to confirm the validity of the payment method. The authorization will appear as from “Medline Industries” on your statement. This is not a charge. The funds will only be collected once your items have shipped from our warehouse.
We do accept debit cards; however, because authorizations may hold additional funds on a debit card account, we do recommend using a credit card for purchases, if possible. If you have used a debit card for your purchase, your bank reserves the funds until the transaction processes or the authorization expires, but this is not an actual charge. We do not collect funds on an order until it ships from our warehouse. If the authorization on your card does expire before the order has shipped, your card will automatically be reauthorized to maintain the validity of the payment method. Medline is not responsible for any overdraft charges.
Some items may ship separately, and so you may see split charges on your statement.
Once your order has been completely shipped and the charge has been processed, the authorization will be removed from your account according to the policies of your bank. To inquire about an authorization on your statement after the complete charge has processed, contact your bank to clarify how long authorizations are held for online orders.
Do I have to pay sales tax?
You will pay sales tax based on the tax at the ship location. Tax is estimated on our website at order checkout and subject to change. Exact taxes will be calculated and determined once your order fully processes. Restrictions to HI and AK may apply.
