Not exactly. While you cannot directly submit a purchase order online, you may use our website to prepare your purchase order.

Simply select the items and quantities and add them to your shopping cart as you would normally. When you are finished, proceed to checkout and enter the shipping and billing information. At the bottom of the billing page, select "Quote for Purchase Order" as the payment method. Click "Submit Order" and you will be assigned an order number. But, don't stop there, you're not done yet! You will need to fax or mail a copy of your e-mail confirmation to us, along with your organization's official and signed purchase order. Please including a copy of the printed e-mail confirmation with your official purchase order. Send to:

Am I required to pay sales tax? Can you process tax exempt orders?

Sales tax is getting more common and more complicated for internet sales. Educational Innovations is required to collect sales tax in many states, and the list is growing. Some states require us to collect sales tax even if Educational Innovations, Inc. does not have a permanent location within the state.

If sales tax is required on your order, it will be calculated during the checkout process.

If you qualify for tax exempt status, you will need to have a registered account and be pre-qualified. Click here to begin the prequalification process now. Be sure to fax or e-mail a copy of your tax exempt certificate and include your full contact information. If you don't have a registered account, you can create one now by clicking here. Be sure to fax or e-mail a copy of your tax exempt certificate and include your full contact information.

Until your tax exempt documentation is received and verified, your orders will not be tax exempt.
