How to Complete The Order Checkout
The online order checkout is an easy to follow 3 to 5 steps wizard, which takes between 1 to 3 minutes to complete depending on your connection speed.
- First time customers
To begin the order checkout process you need to have at least one item in your shopping cart and have a valid e-mail address. From your shopping cart, click the "ORDER CHECKOUT" button located under the items list.
The first screen appears after you click the "ORDER CHECKOUT" button which will ask you to specify if you are a new or an existing customer. To do so, enter your e-mail address and then select who you are ( new or existing
customer ) by checkmarking the appropriate option and click the "NEXT"
- If you are a new customer select this option and click the NEXT button you will be prompted to register an account on the next page.
- If you are an existing customer, select the appropriate option, enter your password and click the NEXT button.

As our welcomed first time customer, please provide the default information about yourself, such as your address, which you may use as a shipping and/or
billing address and create a password. From this point you may use your e-mail address and created password to access your on-line account at Multicolour.com.
Make sure that you are using the correct e-mail address, as it will be your User Name and main point for contact. We also will send your password to this e-mail address, if you forget it.
Choose a password that is at least six characters long. In general, a good password will have a mix of lower- and upper-case characters, numbers, and should be at least 6 characters long. Unfortunately, passwords like this are often hard to remember and result in people writing them down. Do not write your passwords down!
