Saved Shopping Baskets

How to save and restore a shopping basket for ordering

Saving a shopping basket

When a shopping basket is successfully saved, you will be taken to a page listing your saved shopping baskets under the My Accounts section. The newly saved shopping basket should be the last one on the list.

NOTE: When editing a saved basket you cannot change the quantities until you add the items back to the current basket..

Loading a saved shopping basket

There are several ways to add the items from a saved shopping basket to your current shopping basket:

  • Check the box and press the “Add to Shopping Basket” button from the saved shopping basket list page. You can add all the items from one or more saved shopping baskets to your current shopping basket by checking the box and clicking the “Add to Shopping Basket” button.
  • Select the saved shopping basket you want from the list and click the “Update” button. From the current shopping basket, you can select from your list of saved shopping baskets and click the “Update” button.
  • Check the box next to the items you want from the list and click the “Add to Current Shopping Basket” button. From a saved shopping basket details page, you can add one or more specific items by checking the box next to each item row and clicking the “Add to Current Shopping Basket” button.
  • We'll store your saved shopping baskets indefinitely as long as they've been accessed in the past 12 months. Shopping baskets that have not been accessed in the past 12 months will be deleted automatically.

NOTE: Saved shopping basket items added to the current shopping basket will be merged with items already in the shopping basket. If there are duplicate items in the current shopping basket, the item will only be listed once and the quantity will be increased by the quantity of the saved shopping basket. If you want to increase or decrease the quantity of an item for an order, please change the total in the current shopping basket and click the “Update Basket” button.

Deleting a saved shopping basket

Simply log in and view the My Account: Saved Shopping Basket page, and check the box on the row for the shopping basket you want to delete. Then click the “Update” button. The shopping basket will be deleted immediately.

NOTE: Deleting a saved shopping basket is permanent and cannot be reversed.

Placing Orders

Q: What does it mean when a part is on backorder?
A:Occasionally, demand for certain products can lead to them being temporarily ‘out of stock’. However, if you still want this item and don't mind waiting, we are happy to accept orders and despatch it once stock becomes available.
Q: Can I download or email my shopping basket?
A:Yes. At the bottom of your shopping basket you can select the option to download or Email your shopping basket. Choose a file name and location where you would like it to be saved and the complete shopping basket will be saved as a .csv file. Saved Shopping Baskets.
Q: What are order minimums and multiples?
A:Certain products like resistors or cable come in reels or packs of set length or quantity. They are not available for sale in quantities below certain levels because it is not economical to package them in smaller quantities.
Q: How do I apply a voucher code to my order?
A: You can enter a voucher code on the shopping basket page. When you have entered a valid voucher code, press the “Apply” button and the shopping basket total should display the updated discounted total.
