What is a purchase order number?
Purchase Order Numbers allow you to complete purchases without providing card details.
In many organisations a Purchase Order Number request has to be made before an order can be placed. By using a Purchase Order Number, everyone involved in the purchasing process can track the order by referring to the unique number as a standard reference.
Please check with your organisation whether they use Purchase Order Numbers before placing the order. We have no way of verifying every unique number, so a wrongly provided number will not allow us to complete your order.
