How do I view my orders online?

Order Status OnLine will display your hardware and software orders in an easy and secure manner, from the time the order has been processed through to delivery. The data provided is regularly updated and will include a link to the carrier delivery notice when available.

You have two options to access the information in Order Status Online:

  1. Guest access using a combination of your international account code, enterprise number, company number OR customer number AND the Order number OR your customer reference/purchase order number.

    This provides access to select orders only.
  2. Registered access using your IBM User ID and password. As a registered user, you can access all your orders and take advantage of additional reporting functionality.

Connecting to your order status is easy, just go to Order Status OnLine.

For further information or assistance, please contact our Customer Support OnLine web team on 1-877-504-8930, option 3.

Why should I obtain an IBM User ID and password?

An IBM User ID and password gives you access to our web tools which can help you manage your IBM account. With an IBM User ID and password you can request entitlement to various e-tools such as Order Status OnLine and Invoices On-Line. Learn more about registration.

Please supply the following information when registering for your IBM User ID:

Accuracy and detail are very important to future online transactions and e-tool entitlement.

Note that failure to provide any of the required fields prevents the user from completing IBM Registration.

As required by local data protection regulations, you will also be required to confirm that IBM may store and use your Personal Information to contact you and to export your Personal Information outside your country of residence.

When will my delivery arrive?

IBM cannot guarantee a delivery time, however if you wish to specify an am or pm delivery please contact your IBM Account Administrator they will try to meet your request.
