    Anyone else seeing this on their account page? Looks like you can now submit payment online before taking delivery.

    This is part of the delivery process. In my case it opened up a day before delivery (I choose to pay with a cashier's check after inspecting the car though).

    I wouldn’t do it. Inspect your car first.

    It’s like that for everyone

    You can pay at delivery which is what I plan on doing. ACH

    You can wait until you inspect the car, then go into your Tesla account while you're there to do the ACH transfer.

    Yep, as other said, it opens up just before delivery. It makes the process quick and simple. And for the vast majority of people whose vehicle is in great shape, it is as easy as ordering on Amazon.

    If you rejected the car, Tesla takes it back, corrects all issues, then gives the same car back, for your inspection and acceptance.

    I'd just pay in full ahead of delivery, then notice any issues at delivery and have them recorded. Get issues corrected at a later date and enjoy driving on your delivery day.

    I'd bring a cashier's check...Don't be suckered into wiring the money early. What if you go there and there are major paint issues ?

    Mine is similar, but there is no balance to pay - yet it says I need to complete this before delivery. I'm guessing as others said, I just handle this on Friday when I arrive, since there isn't any balance...
