Once you have entered your search criteria, you will see a screen appear that looks as follows. If you have more than one location, your locations will appear in columns.

Tan-Link will allow you to add a minimum stock quantity to your site of the number of product you want to have in stock at all times for that item. Once entered, the system will automatically calculate and inform you of how many items you need to purchase to meet that and makes it easy to order the proper quantities.
As you add items to your order, you will see a shopping cart icon appear on the top right of your screen as shown below. This informs you of how many different types of items you have in your cart.
If you click on the shopping cart, the following window will appear to show you what you have entered to order so far. If you have entered a quantity incorrectly, or have decided you do NOT wish to purchase an item, you will click on the red trashcan icon to the right of the item to remove it completely. If necessary, you can then add the proper quantity back to order.
Once an order is ready to go, you will click on the "Place Order" button shown above. This email will send to whomever is listed as the "supplier" under your General Settings.
