Minitex Payment & Billing

Minitex encourages libraries to put funds into a Minitex deposit account to handle conference and training registrations, lost book payments, electronic resources, and library products (for example: barcodes, tattletapes, RFID, scanners, security systems), as deposit accounts, or "from account," are the quickest and most efficient means to pay for these products or services.

Minitex sends electronic statements of activity in a participating library's deposit account to the billing contact identified by the library. If you wish to change or add a billing contact for your library, feel free to contact Tim Johnson (johns216@umn.edu, 612-626-0885, 800-462-5348). To track payments made from "funds on account," you may download this information from your TravWeb account. If you need assistance with your library's deposit account or TravWeb access, contact Terry Beseman (besematc@umn.edu, 612-624-0322, 800-462-5348).

How do I ensure that my payment is applied accurately?

  • Send your remittance to the correct address, and
  • Include the invoice number

This will ensure that the payment is received promptly and is applied to the correct invoice.

Minitex payment terms are Net 30 – unless other terms are specified.

May I pay by credit card?

Minitex accepts VISA and Mastercard payments for registration fees for Minitex conferences and training sessions, lost book payments, and select products or services.

Credit card payments are not accepted for electronic resources or funds on account.

Do I need to pay sales tax?

Your library may (or may not) be required to pay sales tax depending upon:

  • Your library's sales tax exemption status within the State of Minnesota,
  • Or whether the product or service that Minitex is providing is taxable.

Therefore, it is critical that you keep a current copy of your institution's tax exemption certificate on file with Minitex.
