Credit Options

Credit is a catalyst to every company's growth, and because each company and market has a unique set of requirements, it takes numerous credit programs to satisfy each need. Tech Data's Credit Services department can play a crucial role. Our range of services includes: Business Builder Agreements, floorplanning, open account terms, direct debit, electronic funds transfer, plus standard services such as credit cards, etc.

A wide variety of credit options is essential to your company's growth. To help you succeed in a highly competitive marketplace, we offer several credit and financing options. We can even help you lease your customers the data systems they need.

Net Terms Account

Your Tech Data account is established with a credit limit and payment terms based on the details of your application, credit history and company's financial statements. At any time you would want your account reviewed for consideration of a higher credit limit, contact your Credit Representative or email us at

Credit Cards

Applying purchases to your credit card is a sure way to expedite drop shipments and rush orders. We accept VISA or MasterCard.

Business Builder Agreement

An excellent way to finance larger orders is to arrange for your customer to pay Tech Data directly. This is accomplished through a simple document that you prepare and have your customer sign. This approach can allow you to use your customer's financial strength to obtain additional credit to support your purchases.

  • See our Business Builder Agreement (BBA) Overview for additional information.
  • * BBA deals are subject to review and approval from the Tech Data Credit Services team. For questions or to apply for this program, contact Tech Data's Credit Services team at 1-800-668-5588 ext 26960 or by email to

    Standby Letters of Credit (SLOC)

    A SLOC enables Tech Data to receive payment directly from your bank, but only in the event of a default. You then repay your bank according to the terms agreed upon when the letter was issued.

    Cross Corporate Guaranty

    As a supplement to other forms of security, Tech Data may ask for a Cross Corporate Guaranty. A Cross Corporate Guaranty would be utilized where the Tech Data reseller is a wholly owned subsidiary of another company or if there is a sister corporation that benefits directly from the other.

    Please sign the Cross Corporate Guaranty form at and return the original signed copy to Tech Data. Our Credit Services contact information is listed below.
