Customer Portal Account
No. You may have received an email invitation to sign up for a new customer portal account.
If you haven’t received an email invitation, sign up for a customer portal account here.
For company admins with existing customer portal accounts:
Log into your account. In the sidebar on the Account Dashboard, click Company Users. Then, click Add New User. For more information, see our company user guide.
Don’t have an existing customer portal account?
First, a company admin must set up a customer portal account. Once their account is active, they can add users from the account dashboard. For more information, see our portal setup and company admin guides.
If you already have a customer portal account, log in and go to Company Profile. You’ll be able to find out who your company admin is and how you can reach them. See our company profile article to learn more.
If you don’t have a customer portal account yet, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to find out.
Log in and go to your Account Information. Check the box for Allow remote shopping assistance. This means that your local branch salesperson can remotely help you place orders.
Becoming a Customer
Visit the Become a Customer page. Choose whether your SES account will be credit or cash. A new tab will open. Click Start New Application. Fill out the application and submit it.
You’ll receive an email confirming that your application has been received, with instructions on how to monitor and access the status of your application.
We may contact you for further details to verify your application and eligibility. If we don’t hear from you within seven business days, we may decline your application for an account.
You’ll receive a decision on your application within two to four weeks.
Orders and Checkout
You can place orders through our website, in-person at the counter, over the phone, and in some cases, through email.
Log into your customer portal account. On your Account Dashboard, click Invoice History. Look for your order and click Track Order.
The new online customer portal estimates tax, regardless of exemption status. Once the order is loaded into our ERP system from the website, our ERP will remove the tax before invoicing. As long as we have a valid tax exemption certificate on file and the online order is transferred into our ERP, and it is not being shipped to a state outside of the one listed for exemption, you will not be charged tax on the final invoice.
For online orders
We can’t add items to your orders after they’ve been submitted.
However, we can remove items or cancel your order if you call your local branch salesperson by 4 PM CT on the day you submitted your order. If you ordered after 4 PM CT, contact your local branch salesperson the following day.
For counter, phone, and email orders
If your order hasn’t shipped, we can change or cancel it. Call your local branch salesperson to confirm if you can change or cancel your order.
You can’t reorder the same order at this time. However, we are working on a reorder function.
Use requisition lists to make tailored, recurring orders.
Verify that your shipping, billing, and payment information is correct.
If you’ve placed the order and the page continuously loads for more than a minute, try a hard refresh on the page by pressing Ctrl + F5 (Cmd + F5 for Mac users).
For more information, see our troubleshooting guide.
You have up to 30 days to initiate a return. See our returns policy for more details.
Shipping and Pickup
If your order hasn’t shipped, contact your local branch salesperson immediately. Have your customer number and order invoice ready for reference.
If your order has shipped, contact your local branch salesperson. They may issue a UPS call tag and a return service request form for you to fill out. You may pay some freight costs for the transfer, which vary on a case-by-case basis. To track the status of your order, call your local branch or use UPS Quantum View.
We ship to all 50 US states and US territories.
In the header, click Pay Invoice. A new tab will open. Enter the required information and follow the process to pay your invoice.
You’ll need your invoice number, which you can access from the Account Dashboard by clicking Invoice History.
For more information, see our invoice guide.
Contact your local branch salesperson. An SES representative may reach out for more information.
