Step 1:

Electronically download/export your order out of your system into Excel. Format should include just two columns, Product number (product number without any prefixes like MMM or 3M) and quantity you wish to order. Note: Prior to placing your first order, contact your CSR to verify which billing unit you will be using. (e.g. case or box) Also, you will need to be consistant in your ordering pattern and not bounce between cases and eachs for your quanitites. But your CSR can assist you on this. Here is an example of what it might look like in Excel…


Step 2:

Click on File, and then go down to Save As. For file name, enter the name of order you want to save, and under file type select comma delimited or Tab delimited. Note: There is a limit of 199 items per upload. If you have more that on your order, save your order into two files and upload both one after the other on the same order.

Then click on Add to cart. Your CSR will correct the item in the system and you should be able to upload it the next time you enter an order.
