Checking Dell Order Status

After placing an order through the Dell punch-out site in Shop@UW, users are able to view their order details, order status, and estimated delivery date directly on the Dell punch-out site. Users can click the “Order Status” link on the Dell site and using a few key pieces of information, including the PO Number, search for their orders. The procedure is detailed in the “Checking Dell Order Status” document which provides step by step instructions with screen shots of the process and is available on the Shop@UW tutorial website

Tips: Which Suppliers Charge Shipping?

In Shop@UW, several suppliers charge extra for shipping. Three ways to quickly determine if a supplier charges extra for shipping include:


1. “Shipping Not Included” is printed on the supplier sticker in the shopping showcase.
