Online Ordering Instructions
You may order online without opening an account, but establishing an account will allow you to view the status of your order and your order history. Additionally, account information is saved so that it can be accessed when placing future orders, expediting the process. Once you've set up your account, or if you decide to purchase without an account, click on the category of product you'd like to purchase along the blue bar at the top of the screen, or type in the item's name or number in the "CATALOG QUICK ORDER." Where available, choose colors, styles, sizes, line options, and the quantities that you want to purchase. When you click on the "Add to Cart" button the item will be added to your shopping cart. If you change your mind later, you can remove the item from your cart. When you are finished shopping, click the "Checkout" button in the box on the top right hand side of the screen. You will be guided through billing and shipping screens where you'll enter the appropriate information. Once completed, if you are sure you want to place the order, you will click the "confirm" button to transmit the order to Into The Wind.
