Check on an Order
Once you have placed an order through PCard, email notifications on the order status may be provided by the supplier. If you need to discuss your order, please contact the supplier representative directly.
Change an Order
Once your order is placed, most suppliers will not allow an update to the shipping method or quantities. You can inquire about changing the order by contacting the supplier representative directly.
Cancel an Order
If your order hasn’t yet shipped, contact the PCard Coordinator. Once the order has shipped, you’ll need to initiate a return once the item arrives. Note that most items enter the supplier’s shipping process shortly after being ordered.
Return an Item
When placing an order, be aware of the supplier’s return policy, as most returns must be initiated within 30 days, be stocked items (non-customized products) and remain in their original packaging. See our Returns page for details on how to file a return with a specific supplier.
Check on a Missing Item
Suppliers sometimes split orders into multiple shipments if the items are being shipped from different fulfillment centers. If you are missing an item from your package, first check the packing slip to verify that all the items in your order were shipped together. To obtain assistance with missing items, please contact the supplier representative directly.
Get Help with a Late Item

If one or more of the items you ordered arrives damaged or does not work properly, please initiate a return.
