Note: Steven Engineering's site has been designed to be compatible with Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher. If you experience a problem with your browser, download the latest version of Internet Explorer.

Registration
Registering with Steven Engineering ensures a speedy checkout for our online customers. During registration, you will be asked to provide your bill-to and ship-to addresses, as well as a payment method. Steven Engineering accepts all major credit cards, including MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. If credit card is your method of payment, you will be required to provide us with additional information to ensure tight credit card security: Security Code, card holder's billing address, and issuing bank.  We also accept C.O.D. or open account orders. You will be asked to choose a Username and Password, and each of them must be at least four alphanumeric characters long. The Username will be unique to each user.

Create an Order Pad
You can create an order pad and save it for future reference, or use it to order immediately. At any point during the session you can view, change, add to, or delete the contents of your order pad. The Steven Engineering internet server will keep track of the quantities, costs and your unique part numbers and line numbers for all the items in your order pad.

You can include instructions on how you want your order to be shipped to you.  Look for the editable comment box underneath your order pad called "Order Instructions".  Use this field to type in any special requirements (i.e. packaging or routing) you need to inform us of about this order. Type your instructions and click the "Modify Order Pad" button to save your instructions." You can modify your instructions just by retyping and click the "Modify Order Pad" button again.

When you have finished adding items to your order pad, you have the option of either saving the order pad or placing an order; see appropriate section below.

Note: To create an order pad and identify it as unique to you, the Steven Engineering website uses a "session cookie" to process your order. When you enter the Steven Engineering website, a session cookie containing a number generated by the Steven Engineering web server is sent to your browser. The session cookie is used to identify your browser to the Steven Engineering website. Because the cookie is unique to you, it ensures that your information is secure and cannot be accessed by anyone else. Be sure that the cookie session feature on your browser is enabled prior to placing an order on our website. For added protection, Steven Engineering's cookie session will time out after two hours of detected site inactivity.

Saving an Order Pad
Once you are registered as a Steven Engineering online customer and are logged in, you have the ability to save an order pad and refer back to it at a later date. After selecting items for your order pad, click on the "Save Order Pad" button. A pop-up window will appear requesting you to provide a reference number or name for your order pad. You can save as many order pads as you wish. To access your saved order pads, click the "View my Saved Order Pad(s)" link in the Order Center or the "View All Saved Order Pads" button on the Order Pad page. To save additional items to an already saved order pad, click on the "Save Order Pad" button. A pop up window will appear advising you that an order pad already exists with the same name and if you want to replace the contents with your current order pad. Click the "OK" button if you want to save the order pad with the same reference name/number, or change the reference name/number to save the contents to a new saved order pad.

You can include instructions on how you want your order to be shipped to you.  Look for the editable comment box underneath your order pad called "Order Instructions".  Use this field to type in any special requirements (i.e. packaging or routing) you need to inform us of about this order. Type your instructions and click the "Modify Order Pad" button to save your instructions." You can modify your instructions just by retyping and click the "Modify Order Pad" button again.

Placing an Order
Before placing your order, please verify all of the information for the items you have selected on the order pad. You will be able to delete or add any item before continuing with the checkout process. To delete an item, click on the trash can at the end of the item. To cancel the order, click the "Cancel Order" button at the bottom of the page. (Canceling an order will delete all items from the order pad. To save the order pad without ordering, click the "Save This Order Pad" button to save the displayed order pad.)

Once you have verified all the information on your order pad, click the "Checkout" button to place your order. To check out, you must be registered as a Steven Engineering online customer. You must also be logged in; if you are not, you will be asked to do so before continuing.

Continue the checkout process by confirming your billing and shipping addresses, payment method and shipping method. You can make final changes to your order information by clicking the "Change Info" button on the top right of each section. You can also update your quantities by retyping the amount in the "Ordered Quantity" field for the line item and then clicking "Modify Order Pad".

Selecting an Order Type
Before checking out you can select an order type by clicking "Change Order Type" button. By selecting an order type, it controls the status and shipment schedule for your order. You can submit a quote request or arrange the shipment schedule for a future date (for the entire order, for part of the order, or for specific quantities), or arrange to have your order shipped complete:

  • Blanket Order: An order that has multiple scheduled release dates.
  • Future Order: An order with one designated future delivery date for the entire order.
  • Request for Quote: An order requiring a Sales Representative to contact you for appropriate pricing prior to placing the order. By selecting "Request for Quote" you will be contacted shortly with the appropriate pricing for your items. If you select this order type, you do not need to type in a purchase order number.
  • Sales Order: Your order will be processed immediately. This is the default for orders that have actual pricing for all items in your order pad. Orders that have "Quote" displayed for price will default to the "Request for Quote" order type.
  • Ship Complete: Your order is shipped when all items are available.

Note: If your order pad contains items all with "QUOTE" as the unit price, the system will automatically assign "Request for Quote" as its order type. If your order pad contains items with a few having "QUOTE" as the unit price, the system will automatically assign "Sales Order" as its order type. See details on how to change the order type above.

Once you have verified all the information, type in a purchase order number in the appropriate field. Click the "Place Order" button. The Order Confirmation page will appear with a summary of your order. To print a copy of your order, click the "Print Order" button at the bottom of the page. A copy of your completed order will also be e-mailed to your registered e-mail address.

Note: If you do not see the "Place Order" button, you may have items that are restricted for sale in your geographic territory in your order pad. To checkout, delete the items with a purple flag. If this is not the case, you may be ordering an NCNR (non cancelable, nonreturnable) item with C.O.D. as your payment method. To checkout, change your payment method to either Credit Card, Open Account, or EFT/ACH (Electronic File Transfer).

When your order has been placed, Steven Engineering will immediately verify the order pricing and send a confirmation either by fax, phone or e-mail. You will be able to review the status of the order the following day, receive updated information on your order, and track the order online on the Steven Engineering website. In the event that there is a problem with the submitted order, you will be contacted by one of our Sales Representatives directly. Information on inventory, lead time, and orders are updated on a nightly basis.
