Using Our Online Ordering System

Our online catalog uses "shopping basket technology" to facilitate online ordering. When you start shopping with us, our server automatically assigns you a unique "shopping basket" where you can store products you are interested in purchasing. There is no limit to the amount of products you can have in your basket, and you can add, remove or change the products in your basket at any time before you check out. You can even leave our site and come back within 7 days and your shopping basket will still be waiting for you (assuming you are using the same computer and accept cookies).

There are two ways to add products to your basket, and you can use either one or both:

  1. Browse our online catalog and click "add to basket" when viewing a product you want to purchase.
  2. Use our print catalog quick order form to add items you found in one of our printed catalogs using the 5-digit item number.

When you are ready to check out, click the "Check Out" button . Your connection with our server will then "go secure" and all information you send us will be encrypted to protect your privacy and security. If this is your first time ordering from us, you will need to fill out your shipping and billing addresses, and a way to contact you if we have any questions. If you ordered from a printed catalog, please enter the 5-character code from the back of your catalog, as well as your customer number. If you ordered from the online catalog, you can leave the catalog code blank, and if you do not know your customer number, you can leave that blank also. Hit "continue" when done.

On the next page, choose a shipping method. Express shipping options are available for an additional charge.

On the following page choose a payment method (click for more information on payment methods). In the "messages" box, write any comments you want our order specialists to know. These comments will be reviewed before the order is processed. Then click "continue."

When you hit "continue" your order will be submitted, and you will see a thank you confirmation. You will also receive a confirmation by e-mail, assuming you entered your e-mail address properly in the address page. If you chose the Phone/Fax/Mail option, print your order form and follow directions given.

Canceling or Modifying my order

Once your order is submitted we cannot guarantee your request to modify or cancel. Please contact customer service at 800-376-7856 (7AM – 7 PM CT, Monday – Friday, 8AM – 12PM CT, Saturday) with your request. If it is too late to cancel your order you may return any unwanted items in accordance with our returns policy.
