You may place your order with Play with a Purpose® in any of the following ways:
1. Order Online
You have three options when placing an order online at pwaponline.com: (1) you may browse Play with a Purpose®'s products online, (2) you may enter items directly from the catalog into the Catalog Quick Order form, or (3) you may use a combination of the two.
While browsing pwaponline.com, you may add any item to your shopping cart by simply clicking on the "Add To Cart" button. When you are finished shopping, click on the "Check Out" button at the bottom of the Order Summary page, or click on the shopping cart located near the top of any page.
When ordering from the Play with a Purpose® catalog using the "Catalog Quick Order" form, type in the 5 digit product codes (as shown in the catalog) in the "Item #" box, and enter the quantity you wish to purchase in the "Quantity" box. You DO NOT need to enter the 2-digit letter codes that appear in the catalog---just the numbers. To move between boxes in the online order form, press the "Tab" key on your keyboard, or use your mouse to place the cursor in the box. When you have finished entering all of the items you wish to purchase, press the "Enter" key on your keyboard, or the "Add Items" button at the bottom of the form, and your order will be totaled. (You may also use the "Catalog Quick Order" form to order products from our Gopher catalog, a catalog devoted to physical education, health, athletics, recreation, and fitness products for elementary, secondary, and adult ages.)
