Review the Shop@UW Tips
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.

2. “Shipping Not Included” is indicated in the search results window.
3. Shipping charges for each supplier are outlined on the web page in the details column; see http://www.bussvc.wisc.edu/shopuw/shipping.html.
