Certified checks, bank drafts and debit cards with dollar limitations and/or requiring a PIN number are not acceptable. All checks and money orders must be made payable to the General Services Administration or GSA.

By Treasury policy, credit card payments are restricted to a $24,999.99 dollar limit and one card per transaction.

If you are making payment in U.S. currency, please contact the regional Sales office responsible for a specific item to make arrangements. Some of our regional offices are not equipped to accept cash and other walk-in payments.

A personal or company check will be accepted only when accompanied by a bank letter guaranteeing payment. This letter must be on bank letterhead and must state (1) that payment is guaranteed, (2) that the guarantee is valid for 30 days after the date of the award email notification, and (3) that the guarantee covers the purchase of U.S. Government personal property only. The letter must be dated, include the bidder's name, the amount the guarantee is for, date of sale, sale and lot number and signed by a bank official authorized to guarantee payment.
