Frequently Asked Questions

Can I place an order using our school purchase order?

Yes. After adding items to your shopping cart, you can then save your cart items and print a copy of the shopping cart page with all the product names, item numbers, and prices. You can then use this for your administrative purposes. Then once you receive a purchase order number, you can then return to your saved shopping cart and finalize the order. When prompted for payment method during the checkout process, select "School PO".
