Reference

The confirmation number is assigned by MERX to each opportunity ordered. If one order contains three (3) opportunities, you will see three (3) confirmation numbers.

Order Status

Indicates the current status of the order.  There are 3 statuses:

Processing:  The order has not been processed.

Approved:  The order has been processed and sent via the delivery method selected by the user.

On-Hold: An order may be put “On-Hold” if the credit card number is invalid or the credit card has passed its expiry date.  Orders can also be placed on hold if the Distribution Unit is waiting for documents/components to be delivered.

 

Receive Amendments

Indicates the selection that was made for Amendments when the order was placed.  One of the following 3 options will be displayed.  Note: You can use the Change hyperlink to update your amendment settings.

 

Receive Notifications - change: If this option was selected, each time an amendment or update is issued, you will automatically receive a notification from MERX inviting you to return to MERX and order the document.

 

Receive Amendments - change:  If this option was selected, you will automatically receive amendments and updates by any method of delivery (other than download) that you select. It is important to note that an additional document ordering fee will apply.

 

Receive No Amendments or Notifications - change: If this option was selected, it means you do not want to receive notifications or amendments.

 

Warning:  By choosing to not receive notification or the auto update service, you run the risk of not being informed of changes to the requirements, closing date, or any general information that may put your bid at a disadvantage or to possibly cause it to be non – responsive.
