How to place an order?
The shopping cart page provides the following three options for you to place an order for the content of the cart.
If you rely on your institution’s purchasing department to place an order, click Get Quote on the shopping cart page to create an official quote for items in your cart. You can apply a promotion code toward the purchase when generating the quote. You can then forward the quote to your purchasing manager to place an order. The quote contains detailed instructions on how to place the order. Your purchasing manager can either immediately pay the balance indicated on the quote by credit card online when placing the order, or submit a purchasing order (PO) first and get billed later. You can view all your past quotes by going to menu item My Account > Quotes.
If you have the authority to make an immediate purchase with a credit card, click Purchase Now on the shopping cart page, and you will be taken through the credit card payment procedure. Again, you will have the opportunity to apply a promotion code toward the purchase. This option is the fastest and guaranteed way to place an order.
Get Pro-Forma Invoice
In some non-US regions such as Europe and South America, some institutions may prefer to place orders by first requesting a pro-forma invoice from the vendor, then pay the pro-forma invoice in full to complete the order. If this is the case for you, click Get Pro-Forma Invoice on the shopping cart page. You can apply a promotion code toward the purchase when generating the pro-forma invoice. You can then forward the pro-forma invoice to your purchasing manager to place an order. The pro-forma invoice contains detailed instructions on how to place the order. You can view all your past pro-forma invoices by going to menu item My Account > Pro-Forma Invoices.
Once an order is successfully submitted, an order confirmation email will be sent to you. If something goes wrong with your project, we will contact you by email. You can check the status of your past orders by going to menu item My Account > Orders. Once we finish your project and ship out the order, you will be notified by email, including the tracking number of the shipment.
