We are happy to take purchase orders, but unfortunately we have recently had to change our policy regarding purchase orders. As of 4/21/08, Education Works will only take purchase orders from schools and hospitals. Schools include: Elementary Schools, Middle Schools, Junior High Schools, High Schools (Public and Private), Preparatory Schools, Colleges (including Community Colleges and and Technical Colleges), and Universities. If you are from a pre-school that is associated with an accredited school, we will take a purchase order from that school, or that school's Board of Education. We will also accept purchase orders from all hospitals and major medical centers. Purchase orders from private pre-schools, libraries, businesses, resellers, and daycares will no longer be accepted. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our new policy, please call 800-211-9443, extension 1 for more information, or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
PURCHASE ORDER TERMS
All Purchase Orders shall be effective and binding upon when the Purchase Order is received in the mail or electronically transmitted. All Purchase Orders are placed on Net30 Terms. All Purchase Orders issued must bear the appropriate contact person (purchaser) and, if necessary, required approvals, purchasers address, and phone number. Purchase Orders that are not paid within terms will be assessed for late fees and collection fees. The purchaser is responsible for all collection and finance fees in connection with purchase.
Things to put on your Purchase Order:
1. The most important thing to have on your PO is a contact name and phone number for someone who is easily reachable, and who knows about the order details. We really appreciate having this contact name, because it generally takes about ten minutes to reach the person in charge of the order when we are just given the phone number for your school or school district.
2. The item numbers for the item(s) you are purchasing. If you are unsure about the item number, it can be found in the upper right hand corner of the item page you are viewing, above the price. We will not place purchase orders if there is no item number on the order. If there is no item number on your original PO, it is your responsibility to fax another copy of the PO to us with the correct item numbers on it.
3. Clearly stated shipping and billing addresses, if those addresses are different. If no billing address is stated on your PO, we will send invoices to the shipping address, attention: Accounts Payable.
