Attention UK Schools, Academies & Local Education Authority Establishments
Did you know that you can place an order via our website for payment by invoice? We'll send the invoice with your order so there's no need to pay up front on a card - ideal if you'd like to pay by school cheque, by BACS/internet banking or via your LEA.
Place your order online as usual, entering your Purchase Order number (optional) in the designated box within the shopping cart and enter your School details in the address boxes provided. Then select the "UK School Purchase Order" option when prompted and we'll do the rest.
We'll quote your Purchase Order number (if entered) on our invoice. Just pass our invoice for payment when you receive your music (payment terms 30 days from date of invoice).
Please make cheques payable to "Dotdismus.com Ltd" - thank you!
Placing an order online is a very quick and easy process. In the "Buy now options & prices" column on the product item page, you'll see a quantity box and an "Add Item(s) To Basket" button. Just select the correct quantity alongside each item you require and click the button. This will take you to the shopping cart where you will see your selections have been added to the basket.
To return to the site and continue shopping, just use your browser's "back" button or click the "Continue Shopping" button at the bottom of the shopping cart page.
To return to the shopping cart at any time in order to check, modify or delete items, just click the "Cart" button at the top of each page.
Completing your Order
When you are ready to complete your order, click the "Cart" button at the top of the page. Your order will be displayed complete with product descriptions, quantities, prices, shipping costs (if applicable) and the order total in UK Pounds Sterling (currency code GBP).
Note: You will be required to select your shipping zone from a list of four options: "UK Royal Mail 1-4 Days", "Republic of Ireland", "Europe" or "Rest of the World". Once you have done this, the correct shipping charge for your order is calculated and displayed. (Please
also see our Delivery information page for important delivery information.)
When you have checked the details in your order, click the "Checkout" button.
You will now be prompted for your name and address details. If you think that you may be ordering from us again in the future, you can store these details by way of a cookie on your PC, by checking the "Remember my name and address for my future purchases" box and any subsequent orders will automatically fill in your details for you.
You will now be able to select one of the following payment options:
- Payment by Card
- UK School Purchase Order
If you would like to pay by credit/debit card or via PayPal, you should leave the "Payment by Card" box checked.
If you are ordering from a UK School, Academy or Local Education Authority Establishment and would like to pay on receipt of your order, select the "UK School Purchase Order" box and we'll send you an invoice with your order.
Clicking the "ORDER NOW" button again will either take you to a secure connection for collection of your card details or, if you selected the "UK School Purchase Order" option, will place your order directly onto our system.
If you selected the "Payment by Card" payment option, you will now be prompted to enter your card details in the secure area (we use SagePay as our integrated card payment provider). You can verify you are in a secure area by checking that the URL displayed in the address line at the top of your browser shows https:// at the beginning. The https, along with the padlock symbol in the address bar of your browser (or to the right of the address bar in IE version 7 and higher), indicates that this is a secure page.
Once you have successfully entered your card details, your payment for your order will be taken. A confirmation e-mail will then be sent to the e-mail address you supplied, along with your order details.
