ACH payment

ACH payment

Quick question concerning ACH payment since I’m a taking delivery tomorrow.

ACH is just transferring moment from my checking or savings account to Tesla right ? Can I do two transfers from two different accounts using the Tesla secure payment option ? Thx

Does Tesla take cashiers check ? ACH I believe takes a few days to clear.

ACH is an instantaneous transaction, even though it may take a few days to post. I did my payment Friday at the delivery center and it went thru in a matter of seconds. It did not actually pull the $40+k out of my account until today. Easy peasy.
I do not know if you can split the payment from 2 different sources. Probably a good question for your IDA or the delivery center.

Oh ok kris. Thx. I’ll do ACH then.

Yes, you can do multiple transfers. The first one will reduce your amount due and then you just do a second transfer. I did two from the same account because I wasn't sure if I'd be able to do multiples. So, I transferred everything to one account first and had to wait. Went ahead and tried and it does indeed allow multiple transfers.

Ok thx amd. So I take that as kris said, the transactions are instantaneous.

AMDPower | 4 septembre 2018

Yes, it comes straight off of your account balance. You can even do it at the delivery center the day you pick up your car I believe.

@AMDPower: Yes. That's what I did. Was stressing about cashiers checks for a week until my IDA set me straight. I brought a deposit slip from my checkbook to copy the routing number and account number from, and it took all of 90 seconds, using the laptop provided by the Tesla paperwork guy at the delivery center. Piece of cake!

Thx guys

Good luck. As long as their system is fully operational, you should have no problems. If it's not, they'll actually take your personal check. I was quite surprised. Enjoy your wonderful new car.

They took my, rather large, personal check

ezdraft | 5 septembre 2018

damn, they told me i could not split the payments from two accounts, well its already done

Tesla takes cashier checks. But in states where Tesla is not allowing to sell directly like Texas, you will need to pay in advance.

Got my car delivered today. The financial part went really well. Did ACH and a cashier’s check.

The delivery process was easy but the car itself had a lot of paint issues and a couple of body gap issues. I’ve read about them online so I wasn’t too surprised or upset. But for a $60k car and a previous Lexus owner, I was still disappointed. The folks at Tesla were cooperative and took pictures of the problematic areas and say they will all be fixed. They gave me the option of not taking delivery until they fix all of them but I decided to take the car and schedule an appointment to fix them at a later date. I have 24 hours to report any additional problems I may see on the outside. They say it will take 7-10 days to fix and will provide me with a loaner. Hope that goes smoothly.

So far everything else worked well and the car drove nicely. Nice car despite the quality issues.

Any body keen for Referrals. I am buying my tesla tomorrow

jimglas | 15 août 2019

@Sunil: If you have a friend who owns a tesla, ask that person for their referral code. Or, the SC can look it up for you

SUNILGERA | 15 août 2019

Thanks, Who is SC?

I guess I don't have a Tesla Friend

service center
ask your delivery specialist before you pick up your car

There are helpful videos and websites containing referral codes. If you don't know anyone I suggest cruising the web for content that took effort to create, is helpful to others, that contain referral codes.

I like much of what teslatap provides for free so I recommend this one:

SC generally denotes either service center or supercharger depending on context. In this case, service center.

Here is my referral link. Feel free to use it if you like,

Have a nice day and hope you have a wonderful experience with your new car. BTW, inspect the car closely, especially the lower rocker panels. My car had a deep scratch on the driver's side lower rocker. No worries, Tesla took care of it.

rdh37 | 15 août 2019

Or do what 8 ball suggested. I like his recommendation.

Magic 8 Ball | 15 août 2019

Teslatap has put in a lot of effort to provide good input for the community, there are others so decide for yourself. But checkout Frank's site:

You know, I have a friend who back in June bought a Model 3. Just noticed an email from him asking for my referral code. Oh well.... To late now.
