Ordering & Payment
The ordering or "Checkout" process from Direct365 is designed to be as simple and as stress free as possible. We want for you to be able to quickly work your way through with no interruptions or errors to that we can get your items dispatched as quickly as we can.
You can either make an account with us, the advantage of this is that you will have easy access to your order history as well as other functionality that is designed to give you additional information on your history with Direct365 supplies. Once you have made your account, you can log in using the same information each time - this will save all of your details so that you don't need to re-add them each time. The other option is to work your way through the checkout process as a "Guest" this is quicker, but you won’t be able to re-access your order through your account, because you don't have one.
You will need to select an address for delivery, the address that your card is registered to as well as the details of your card and other bits of important information including postcode, telephone numbers and your name.
Once all this has been done, you will be given an order number and a confirmation email will be sent to you containing all the information you need to track the order, estimated delivery time and how to get in touch with us if something out of the ordinary happens.
Adding products to your basket
If you have found your products and you are happy with you choice, it's time to add them to your basket so you can proceed to the checkout where the items can be paid for.
Most products will have an easily visible button which says "Add to basket", all you need to do is click this and you will be informed instantly that it has been successful. It's important to note that at this stage, you haven't yet paid for your item, you have just added it into your shopping basket as you would in a supermarket to prepare you for the checkout. Occasionally the item may be temporarily out of stock - you can always get in touch with our customer care team for more information.
You have 3 ways to pay for your items.
