Payment Options

Credit Card

We accept:

MasterCard · Visa · Discover · American Express · JCB · China Union Pay · Diners Club International · B&H Payboo Credit Card · B&H Financing Credit Card

Customers with USA billing addresses will not be charged until the order is processed for shipping. However, a credit card authorization hold occurs at the time the order is placed. Credit card customers with non-USA billing addresses will be charged in full at the time of purchase.

Credit card payment declined?

There are several reasons that might explain why:

  • The amount of the transaction exceeds the account's available credit limit.
  • The card on file was either renewed or voided and is no longer active.
  • The issuing bank has not released the initial authorization, even though B&H has already voided it and started the process of reversing the auth. If this is the case, it can take up to 72 business hours for the funds to be put back into a customer's account. Please contact your bank to request that they remove the credit card authorization or to find out why they are declining the charge.

If you believe any of the above issues are preventing your order from being completed, please reach out to your bank for further instructions and directions.

If you require additional support, please reach out to Customer Service via email, Live Chat or phone at 800.606.6969.

Terms and Conditions

The B&H Rewards Program ("Program") applies only to products ("qualifying products") listed as participating in this Program on the B&H Foto & Electronics Corp. ("B&H") website or catalog. Customers purchasing qualifying products will receive points equal to the percentage of the purchase price ("Rewards"). Approximately forty (40) to sixty (60) days after a qualifying product has shipped (the "issue date"), Rewards will be automatically converted to a promotional code eligible for use as a credit on purchases from B&H. Tax, shipping & handling and any other fees are not eligible for Rewards Points. Customers must be logged in to their consumer accounts on the B&H website, www.bhphotovideo.com, to participate in this Program. Purchases through accounts on the B&H Federal/GSA, Government, Education, Corporate and Students or Educators web portals are not eligible for this Program. Promotional codes are only valid for use for six months after their issue date. This Program is valid for a limited time only and B&H may cancel or modify it at any time. Rewards or promotional codes cannot be converted to cash, either directly or indirectly, and may not be transferred or sold. Qualifying product purchases, which are returned by customers, will result in the subtraction of the value of the Rewards or promotional code(s) from the customer's account, or the return, whichever is applicable. Any discount or price adjustment, including but not limited to an adjustment resulting from a price match inquiry, may result in the value of the Rewards for this item being reduced by the amount of the price adjustment or eliminated entirely, at B&H's sole discretion. This Program is void where prohibited by law or otherwise and it may not be combined with other offers. Violation of any of these terms and conditions will result in disqualification from participation in this Program and the invalidation and forfeiture of any Rewards or promotional codes.

Business Leasing

Hampton Ridge Financial

B&H Leasing makes it easy and affordable to acquire the products you need without depleting your cash or borrowing from the bank. By taking advantage of equipment leasing options (minimum purchase $5,000), you gain a cost-effective means of obtaining new pro photo, video, audio, computer and post-production equipment at prices you can afford. Leasing is available for commercial, professional and not-for-profit organizations (including houses of worship). Retail customers or month-to-month rentals are not eligible. Contact us via email at [email protected].

Apply Online Questions? Payment Estimator

Why lease?

Leasing is a practical and cost-effective way to acquire the latest technology and equipment. Leasing provides affordable monthly payments with flexible terms and can be structured to match the cash flow needs of your business.

Your lease may be structured so you own the equipment at the end of the lease. Alternatively, you can return the equipment to the leasing company at lease termination with no further obligation. Leasing allows easy upgrades to newer technology during the lease.

Leasing offers important tax advantages, and your lease payment may even be fully tax deductible (check with your tax advisor). Arranging your lease is easy with simple documentation and quick turnaround.

What type of leases are available?

Payment terms can be conveniently spread out over terms as long as 60 months. When you start the lease, you will have a choice of end-of-lease buyout payments to select. At the end of the lease, if you make the buyout payment, you can keep the equipment, it's yours!

Alternatively, if you don't want to make the buyout payment, you can return the equipment to the leasing company at the end of the lease with no further obligation. Your choice of the buyout payment, along with the length of the lease, will affect your monthly payments.

The end-of-lease buyout options are fair market value (FMV), 10% of original purchase price, and "bargain purchase" (typically $1 or $101) buyout. For any given lease term, the FMV lease will result in the lowest monthly payment. Higher payments will be incurred with the 10% and bargain purchase buyout leases.

What monthly payment can I expect?

Rates are subject to credit approval, taxes, shipping and other expenses. Please contact Hampton Ridge Financial at 866.815.4448 for information on monthly payments.

How do I get started?

Please fill out the online lease application or contact Hampton Ridge Financials at 866.815.4448.

What if I have a leasing company that I work with already?

B&H is happy to help you finance your purchases with many other leasing companies. Please call our Leasing Department at 877 628-2734 or 212 465-4266 for further assistance.
