Why did I have to fill out all that information to become a customer?

As a business, we need to have all of your billing information before making you a customer. This involves a number of internal processes that we have to complete, so although it may take a while to complete all of the information before becoming a customer, in the long run, we promise it will be worth it!

The site looks completely different to the last time I placed an order. What has happened?

The Rayware trade site has had a complete make over in order to make it much more user friendly. We spent time researching what our customers liked about the old site and what they didn’t. We then used this feedback as a base to improve it.

The main improvements include a quick order form, an easier re-ordering process and dedicated brand pages which reflect the look and feel of our consumer websites. There is also a dashboard page where you can easily find your account details, your wish list, orders and promotions that are tailored to your business type, along with details of new products that have been added. The new products list is updated hourly so you have access to stock availability and pricing in an instant. Our ideal is to make your shopping experience better, and we will continue to ask for feedback and improve the site further as time goes on.

I'd like to see your prices in Euro's instead of UK Sterling.

When you register with us, dependent on your details we will set your account to show our product pricing in either UK Sterling or Euro’s. If you want to change this, please contact us and let us know, or call directly on +44 (0)151 486 1888.

What is the quickest way to place an order?

We have introduced a ‘Quick Order’ form which you will find listed in your 'My Account' dashboard. If you know the codes of the products that you wish to order, all you need to do is type in the code and the quantity required. The product name and details will automatically be filled in. Once you have finished adding codes simply click on the ‘add to basket’ button.

If you have already placed an order with us and want to re-order items from a previous order, simply click on the re-order button in your dashboard. This will add all of the products on your previous order to your basket which you can then adjust, for example you can remove products that you do not wish to re-order and adjust the quantity of those that you do. 

I just want to browse through the site to see what is there but I don't want to place an order online

This is fine, you can still fax or email your order through to our sales team on +44 (0) 151 486 1467 or sales@rayware.co.uk. Our sales team are available between 9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday. However, if you’re worried about the security of placing an order online, please don’t be. Our trade site is SSL encrypted to give you a completely secure connection.

I want to find a mixing bowl to add to my order. What do I do?

The site navigation has been made much simpler now for the user. There are 2 ways to locate a particular product: 

  1. You can use the search facility in the top right of the menu, just add the words ‘mixing bowl’, the item code, or product name and it will search the whole site for you and bring every product relating to the word or number onto one page. 
  2. You can use the ‘Product’ menu at the top of the page. Every item within The Rayware Group has been re-categorised to fall into one of these sections. Mixing bowls are within both the Baking and the Tools, utensils and food preparation categories. You can then refine your results using the filters at the left hand side of the page. 

I only want to see what is available under the Mason Cash brand

It is now much easier to find products under specific brands. Use the brands drop down on the top menu bar and choose Mason Cash. You will then be shown the ranges within the brand that you have selected.

If you are a trade customer, you can download the latest Mason Cash catalogue by choosing Mason Cash from the brands drop down on the top menu bar and clicking the 'Catalogue' button.

How do I find out who my Area Sales Representative is?

When you register on our site you will automatically be assigned an Area Sales Representative. Their details will be displayed at the top of your dashboard.

How do I order products from a previous order?

Every order you’ve placed with us over the past 12 months is stored in ‘your orders’ which can be found in your dashboard. This section allows you to track your current orders and to view products from your previous orders. Just select which order you want to view by clicking on the date link. You can then view all the products, and add any specific items you want to your current order. 

I've added too many cartons of a product to my order. How can I reduce the number?

Click on the basket link at the top of the page, this will bring up the list of items which are currently in your basket. Find the product that you wish to update then alter the quantity using either the plus or minus buttons or by typing the correct quantity into the carton quantity box. Products can also be completely removed from your order by clicking on the ‘delete’ button. If you have already placed your order and checked out please call us on 0151 486 1888 and we will update the order for you.

I'd like to use some of the product images on your site. How can I do this?

On each product page we have added a ‘Download product images’ button. This will take you to a folder which displays all of our product images which are labelled by code. Simply highlight the image that you want to save by clicking on it once, then right click and choose ‘save as’ to save it to your computer. If you want to choose multiple images, hold down the shift or control button which allows you to select multiple images at once. Then right click and choose ‘save as’ to save them to your computer.
