Paying for your car...

For those that have already gone through the process, how seamless is using the ACH function on the website to pay for the car? How far in advance did you do it? I am getting my car on Tuesday and wondering if I should just wait until that morning to initiate the transfer, or do it sooner.

What is everyone’s experience. I don’t want things held up at the time of delivery....

Per other threads, cashier's check only. They used to take personal checks, not anymore.

Saw someone say they did an electronic transfer @ their delivery appointment while the Tesla person watched, and that was apparently sufficient.
I bought the 3 with a personal check on Feb 3, 2018. At that time they were happy to accept my personal check. I've not heard about any policy change. When did it change?

I doubt that he would know as he is only referencing other threads on the board where it was mentioned. I saw the thread myself, however, I could not tell you where it is at, nor the subject line. That said, I got the cashier's check because I prefer not to write checks that large off my account.

ACH is what I did. It was only activated three days before my delivery, so there wasn't even enough time for the transaction to post, but Tesla didn't care. It'll be very obvious on your account screen once your rep has enabled payment. I specifically asked for it to be opened up, thinking they'd want the transaction to clear before handing over the car. Didn't matter though and things went off like a charm

Where did you see the instructions saying three days before delivery? I am getting conflicting info from Tesla and my ISA all but disappeared. I am also picking up on Tuesday. I haven’t issued payment yet.

That was ISA over the phone, if you check your Tesla account where you configured, you will see more details and you can pay there.
