An account can be created by clicking account setup on the home page. Alternatively you can create an account after completing your order. If you are a customer from an educational establishment it is recommended that you request an invoice account to avail of the invoice payment option and the quotation request facility.
If you would prefer not to register, you can process your order as a guest and pay by credit card, laser/debit card, gift voucher or invoice (available to educational establishments and companies only and subject to approval by Cregal Art).

Advantages of being a registered invoice customer
Faster order processing, use of the permanent cart and order history, see details above.
Invoice payment: As well as the option to pay by gift voucher, credit or laser/debit card, you will also be able to pay by invoice and have the option of providing a purchase order number.
Quotation function: If you are logged in as an invoice customer you can add items to a quotation by clicking ‘Add to Quote’ instead of ‘Add to Basket’.
We accept all major credit and laser/debit card payment. All card payments are processed using Gobal Payments (Rebrand ofRealex Payment) which is a third party secure payment system. See www.globalpaymentsinc.com for further details.
You can pay for an order by gift voucher even if the voucher is less than the value of the order. A member of staff will contact you for the payment balance.
Educational establishments and companies can pay for orders by invoice. You can apply for an invoice account when registering. The option to register is on the home page, cart page (by clicking "log in") or on completion of your order. Unfortunately private customers cannot pay by invoice.
If you would prefer not to register, you can process your order as a guest and choose to pay by invoice from the payment section (subject to approval by Cregal Art and if not approved we will contact you for an alternative method of payment).
Request a quotation first
This is available to approved invoice customers i.e. customers that requested an invoice account when registering and have been approved. If you are already registered and would like to apply for an invoice account please email email@example.com
A quote is created in the same way as an order; the only difference is that you click ‘add to quote’ instead of ‘add to cart’. When you have compiled your quotation simply go to the cart and click request a quote. Cregal Art will then respond with a quotation to the email address provided on your account. There is also a comment box if you would like to receive a quote for items not on our website, or to request that we send the quotation to an alternative email address etc.
