Shopping Cart

In the Marketplace Portal, you can browse for service offerings in the catalog and then add them to the shopping cart for a single checkout transaction. This transaction is recorded as one order confirmation number.

The total number of offerings (items) that you add to the shopping cart is displayed at the top of each view. All items are based on their service designs. Shopping cart contents remain in the cart, even after you log out. To empty the shopping cart, remove each item.

Note For each service offering in your shopping cart, pricing precision displays up to five digits. This pricing is based on the original service offering configuration.

During the shopping cart checkout process, you can:

  • Add Subscription Names—Enter meaningful, custom names for each item in your shopping cart. As a best practice, create names that easily identify them as services in your organization. If you do not want to customize the subscription names, accept the default subscription names.
  • Provide Order Information—Configure the subscription period for all items in your shopping cart. Attach documents that provide more information for the approval process, such as a purchase order.

    Note You must use Internet Explorer 10.0 or higher to attach documents to a service offering.
