Building Shopping Lists

Shopping Lists eliminate the need to search for your favorite products every time you order.

There are two simple ways to build Personal Shopping Lists:

  • Add individual items from a product page
  • Upload a list that you've created in Excel

Once created, you can edit and share your lists with colleagues, and you can add items from a list to the Shopping Basket prior to checkout.

Continue reading to learn more, or go to Tutorial Videos and watch "Building Shopping Lists."


 

Where are my Personal Shopping Lists stored?
On the Shopping Lists page, in the "Personal Shopping Lists" tab.

You can get to the Shopping Lists page by selecting the "Shopping Lists" link, which is found in the left navigation menu or the My Account menu in the top navigation bar.


How do I add products to a shopping list from a product page?
In the order table (below the product description), find the quantity field that appears next to the item you want to add to a Personal Shopping List. In this field, enter the correct quantity of the item(s) that should be added to a list.

To add items to an existing shopping list, select "Existing List" at the bottom of the page under "Add to Shopping List." Use the drop-down menu to select the existing list to which the items should be added, then click "Submit." Your updated list will appear on the Personal Shopping List Details page.

To add items to a new shopping list, select "New List" at the bottom of the page under "Add to Shopping List." Name your new list in the "Enter List Name" field, then click "Submit." Your new list will appear on the Personal Shopping List Details page.


How do I edit an existing Personal Shopping List?
On the Personal Shopping Lists page, click the "Edit" link shown beside the name of the list you would like to edit. The Personal Shopping List Details page allows you to change a quantity or delete individual items by selecting the red "x" in each row that should be deleted.


How do I share an existing Personal Shopping List?
On the Personal Shopping Lists page, click the "Share" link shown in the row of the list you would like to e-mail to a colleague. Enter your colleague's e-mail address in the field that appears, then click "Send."


How do I upload a list of products to create a Personal Shopping List?
Using Excel, create a file that has the following four column headers: VWR Catalog #, Unit of Measure, Shopping List Name, Quantity.

On the line after the column headers, enter the appropriate product information for your shopping list. NOTE: Do not leave a line between the row of headers and the information you are entering.

Save the Excel file for future use. Then, save your list as a .CSV file:

  • Open the Excel file containing your list
  • In the "File" menu, select "Save As"
  • Choose a folder and name your list
  • In the "Save as type" drop-down menu, select "CSV (Comma delimited)"
  • Click the "Save" button

On the Personal Shopping Lists page, under "Upload a Personal Shopping List," select the "Browse" button, select your file, then click "Upload." A note on the Personal Shopping List Details will let you know that the shopping list was uploaded correctly.
