Context

Check out your products on the company’s ecommerce website when you are done shopping and need to complete your transaction and receive your products. 

The checkout process is a linear series of steps that must be completed in sequence:

In the first step, you view your shopping cart, and can make any adjustments to the quantities, rental dates and items in your cart.  Next you proceed to the checkout and confirm whether the order is for delivery or pickup. If it is for delivery, you enter your delivery information, such as the job site address, and any special instructions. Next, you enter your payment information, such as payment on account or your credit card information, and then complete the transaction. 

All the steps must be successfully completed to complete the checkout process. 

Rental Dates

The contents of your cart are considered to be a single order/contract, regardless of the type and/or quantity of products in the cart.  

For rental orders, each order/contract has a single rental date range that applies to all products within the order/contract.  If you have multiple products that each require different rental dates, you must do one of:

  • Complete the checkout process for separate orders/contracts for each product, and set the rental dates separately for each order/contract.
  • Complete the checkout process for the entire order/contract, and then adjust the rental dates for each product on the order/contract separately in the customer access portal.  See: “Change the Due Date of a Specific Product on a Rental Contract in GateWay” for more information.
