Unfortunately due to invoicing we are unable to accept more than one booking at a time for a digital product. Please remove one of the products and try again.
If you are trying to purchase physical goods alongside a virtual product such as software, training or LiveAssist in the same transaction, and you are having issues with your basket then we recommend that you complete each transaction individually to ensure that the order goes through correctly. If you are having any other issues then please email us email@example.com and the team will be able to help.
While you can place your order at any time of the day, please note that it can take up to 2 working days for the order to be processed. The office is open Monday-Friday, so orders placed over the weekend may take an extra couple of days to process. Once your order has been processed and shipped, you will be notified via email.
For example, if you place your order by 12pm on a Friday, the order will be dispatched on the same day for delivery. If you select Express Delivery, you can expect your order to be delivered on Monday (subject to availability). Standard delivery usually takes up to 5 working days.
For the purchase of physical products, spares and consumables, you will be charged when the order is confirmed. Once payment is taken, your order will be processed and shipped.
For digital products, such as online or remote training, you will be invoiced and charged only when the training takes place.

Stock availability is clearly marked on each product.
If a product is in stock, it means it is in the warehouse and is ready to be shipped out.
If a stock is marked as pre-order, it means that we do not have any physical stock of this item in the warehouse, however it can be pre-ordered from the manufacturer and will usually take a few weeks to arrive.
Please be aware that some Cryospares items have longer lead times. You can check lead times of a product before you buy by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If a product is out of stock, then please email us on the email address above and we will be able to check with the relevant business unit to see if it can be pre-ordered.
To place an order via PO, you must register your MyOi account (if you haven’t already)
Before you process your PO through our system, please confirm the following:
• Will it be yourself who will be processing the PO or someone else? If its someone else, please make sure the account has been registered under the individual’s name and email.
• We can send invoices to your email address and a secondary email address that you can add in the MyOi section of your account
• We do not upload invoices to any third-party web tools e.g. Chorus
Before creating your PO, please make sure you have registered Moduslink as a vendor in your system, as the PO must show Moduslink as the supplier as they are our Commerce partner and handle our payments/distributions.
Please also be aware that we do not process PO's for customers. Even if you have a PO you would still need to place your order on estore.oxinst.com
Please note that once you have placed an order, you will not be able to change the delivery address for that order. Orders with physical shipments are immediately sent to our fulfilment agency and our systems are unable to amend the details. You can maintain your details and update your address and personal information at any time by logging into your Account.
When you go into each product there is an orange button in the top right which says add to order template. This will bring up a box that says add this product to order template. You can create your order template and name it here and add other products to it if you wish.
