Q. How do I use my Trade Credit Account?

The details shown on-screen in your account are the most up-to-date information we have, up to the end of the last banking day. Your current balance may not display purchases and payments made in the last 48 hours. This can take a little longer over weekends and bank holidays due to bank operating restrictions.

General queries

Q. How do I add additional cardholders to my account?

You can add additional cardholders to your Trade Credit Account, allowing other individuals approved by you, to make purchases from Toolstation on your account.

You can do so by accessing the Manage Additional Cards tab in your account page and clicking on "Add Account Holder". You will be asked to provide the contact and address information of the new users.

Additional cardholders will be able to transact in branches and online using your Trade Credit Account limit. For security purposes they will not be able to see your credit limit and will not have access to the Payment Portal.

Q. How do I remove additional cardholders from my account?

You can use this functionality if one of your employees has left the business, for example. To remove their access, click on Manage Additional Cards tab in your account page and click on the "Edit" button next to the Cardholder’s name. You will then need to untick the "Active user" button and click "Done". By following these steps the account will be removed straight away.

Q. What if I’m missing an invoice or statement, or require a copy?

You can download your invoices at toolstation.com via the ‘Order History’ tab. If you need a statement you will need to log in to the High Radius portal (our third party provider) by clicking on the “Payment Portal” button in the Trade Credit Account tab on our website.

Q. What’s the difference between the Toolstation Trade Credit Account and the Toolstation Trade Credit Card powered by Barclaycard?

The Toolstation Trade Credit Account is managed by Toolstation and gives you access to 60 days interest free credit on any purchases made exclusively in Toolstation.

The Toolstation Trade Credit Card, powered by Barclaycard is a Credit Card managed entirely by Barclaycard Commercial Cards and applications subject to Barclaycard approval process.

Q. Why can’t I have the credit amount that I’ve asked for?

Credit limits are offered based on the financial information available at the time of your application and are regularly reviewed. We will try and increase once we see your trading history and will authorise depending on the results of the credit check

Q. Can I apply for a change to my credit limit?

Whilst credit limits are regularly reviewed any requests for a change to your current credit limit can only be submitted through the Trade Credit Account pages online. We cannot process requests made via any other contact method such as email or phone.

Making payments

Q. When do I have to make payments?

Invoices are due and payable 30 days after the end of the month in which the goods were purchased. For instance, if the goods were received on July 15th, payment is due on 31st August.

Invoices must be paid in full on the due date. Failure to do so may result in interest being charged to your account. For full terms and conditions please see Trade Credit Account terms.

Q. How do I make a payment?

Debit or Credit Card: Please access the Payment Portal at https://www.toolstation.com/account/trade-credit.

Bank transfer: Account name Toolstation Ltd, Sort code 60-24-37, Account number 40670422. Please quote your Toolstation Trade Credit Account number (you can find it on your statements and invoices).

Payments to your balance cannot currently be accepted in any of our branches or through the Customer Contact Centre.

Q. How do I ensure that a payment made via Bank Transfer is allocated to specific invoices?

Payments will be allocated to your oldest transactions, unless you send us a remittance clearly quoting the invoice numbers and amounts included in your payment.

Please send your remittance details to remittance@toolstation.com including your company name and Toolstation Trade Credit Account number within the subject line. Please upload the remittance in a PDF format.

Q. What happens if I make a part payment on my account?

We always try to match the payment to the correct invoices, but part payments could sit unallocated on your account while we try to do so. This is why it’s important you send us the remittance advice. The payment will still be taken into consideration when calculating your outstanding balance.

Q. If I make a payment online, when will it appear in my account?

The payment will usually show on your account within 48 hours of you submitting it (this can take a little longer over weekends and bank holidays).
