Internet Purchases



All current restrictions to ProCard use also apply to the use of the card for Internet transactions.  Please refer to the Restrictions of ProCard Program section of the ProCard Policies for a complete list of restricted items.

On-line purchases must be made with vendors using a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) browser session.  There are several ways to confirm that a secure area has been accessed.  All SSL capable browsers have a symbol to indicate secure mode, but the secure mode may not appear until going further into the web site. Specifically, look for the following:

Customers must use the same care and common sense in supplier selection as they would with any other purchasing method.  The objective should be to balance quality and service with price.

Receipt documentation must be maintained to support the Internet order.

  • Web sites that present an on-line receipt, reflecting the billing amount and a company logo or name will serve as proper documentation. Simply print the on-screen document.
  • Web sites that reflect the billing amount only will serve as proper documentation by printing the on-screen receipt and then writing the company name on the document.
  • Web sites that do not present an on-line receipt can still be utilized. The customer should print screens that reflect the items being purchased and the amount, and then ensuring that transaction date, vendor, and other pertinent information is recorded on the printed documentation.
