New Website FAQs

What browsers are compatible with this website?

The site is optimised to work best on the latest browser versions, including Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Safari and the last release of Internet Explorer (v11). The website may not perform optimally on older operating systems or browsers. If using the Windows 7 operating system, as a minimum please ensure you are using the latest version of Internet Explorer (v11). If you continue to face issues on older operating systems/browsers, please try using the latest version of a different browser where possible (e.g. Chrome), or contact us for further support.

Why can't I see some of the products I usually purchase?
Products that are part of our extended range may not be visible as they are on the current site. To find and purchase these products, you can type the product code in the search bar or go into Purchase Lists in My Account and click on the "Extended Range" Purchasing List. From here you can view and select the extended range products and add them to your basket.
Why can't I find the product I need by searching the code?

We are working to improve our search experience so that searching the product code takes you directly to the product page. If you have any issues when searching a product code, try using quick order to add the code to the basket which is a quicker way to take you to the product you need.

How are purchase lists managed?

Your Purchase Lists are managed at the highest level of your organisation and made available to all accounts. Changes made to Account Purchase Lists will cascade to all users. It is possible to restrict Purchase Lists to a specified group of users by assigning them to Sold To's.

Why do I have the ability to manage users?

On the new website, you may now be able to manage other Users that are part of your organisation (add/delete/invite). There is no action required for users with this permission. Please consult your Organisation before taking advantage of this functionality.

What are the new system roles?

A system role is a collection of permissions which form the Role and can be assigned directly to a User's role. Users within the Organisation who have either the Key User, Account Admin or ARM Admin role can manage User roles and permissions.

Why can I approve more orders than I could before?

On the new website, approvers are able to approve requisitions up to a certain value. It is no longer possible to define a 1-2-1 approver relationship; you may be able to approve more orders than on the old website but this is only up to the same value that you are able to approve today.

What is PAC?

Product Access Control (PAC) determines whether a product is core, non-core or excluded. The PAC status of a product determines whether it is core, non-core and excluded products.

  • P = Purchasable-Products can be added to the basket and bought (core)
  • A = Approval Needed-Products can be added to the basket. If Spend Control is enabled, then these products need approving before being purchased (non-core)
  • C = Cannot Purchase-Products cannot be added to the basket (excluded)
Are my core, non-core and excluded products the same?

No change has been made to your listings and exclusions on the new website; all of your core, non-core and excluded products are the same as on our old website. If you have any issues or concerns, please get in touch.

What has changed for decoration?

Our new website allows you to decorate any customisable garment with text and/or logos assigned to your account. For the first time, you can preview your decoration before you order.

Where is my custom homepage?

If you no longer have a personalised homepage but would like one, please contact Customer Services via live chat, phone or email.
