Step 4 — Create favorites lists
To save time finding products, create a favorites list so you can quickly see all your most commonly purchased products. This way, you don’t have to search for your top-selling products every time you want to check pricing and availability or place an order.First, find the products you want to add to your favorites list by selecting the product type under “Shop” in the main navigation.
Then, use the expandable filters on the left to narrow down to the exact product you’re looking for. You can filter by individual product features like material type and size or use the bundled “Quick Filters” to view Picoma's most popular products. Quick filters are combinations of filters that get applied all at once when selected.
Any filters you select will be listed beneath the product type and number of results near the top of the page.
Tip: You can remove any selected filters by clicking the red “X” next to each parameter, and you can remove all filters by clicking “Clear Results.” Notice that each individual product is listed multiple times in the results. This is because the product can ship from either the Picoma mill or from a local stocking warehouse. When adding a product to your favorites, be sure to select the line item with the appropriate stocking location listed at the far right. Or, add all line items for that product to your favorites so you can quickly see pricing and availability for all locations the product can ship from.
To narrow down by the location the product will come from, use the “Ship From” dropdown in the red bar to select a mill or local stocking warehouse.
Tip: You can also select a branch location from the “Ship To” dropdown in the red bar if you have multiple branches. This isn’t required when adding items to your favorites, however, because you will see the same products in your favorites list for all your branch locations. Once you’ve found the desired product with the appropriate stocking location, click the icon in the gray bar to add it to your “Favorites” so you can find it faster next time.
Once you’ve added products to your favorites, you can access your favorites lists under “Shop” in the navigation.
Tip: To remove a product from your favorites list, click the icon to deselect the item. Keep in mind that removing a favorite item removes it for all branch locations. Within each favorites list, you can change the view by branch location in the “Ship To” dropdown in the red bar. This will update real-time product pricing and availability for that branch.
You can also filter your favorites lists by stocking location. Use the “Ship From” dropdown in the red bar to select the Picoma mill or local stocking warehouse. If you leave the dropdown set to “All,” you’ll see availability for all locations.
View and purchase products in your favorites list
Access your favorites lists under “Shop” in the navigation.
The product prices and availability may be different depending on which branch location you are viewing. Select the branch location you want to shop for in the “Ship To” dropdown in the red bar to see real-time pricing and availability for that branch.
You can also narrow down your favorites list by the location the product will come from by using the “Ship From” dropdown to select a mill or local stocking warehouse.
Tip: If you leave the “Ship From” dropdown set to “All,” you’ll see availability and pricing for all locations the product can ship from.
Once you’ve made your selections for branch location (ship to) and mill or warehouse location (ship from), follow steps 4 and 5 outlined below to check product pricing and availability

Tip: You can remove any selected filters by clicking the red “X” next to each parameter, and you can remove all filters by clicking “Clear Results.”
Step 4 — Check pricing and availability
Once you’ve found the right product, you can see real-time pricing and availability. If you have the “Ship From” dropdown set to “All,” you will notice that each individual product is listed multiple times in the results. This is because the product can ship from either the Picoma mill or from your local stocking warehouse.
Tip: To narrow down by the location the product will come from, use the “Ship From” dropdown in the red bar to select a mill or stocking location. From left to right on each product line item, you’ll see the product price in green, the product description and standard pack quantity, in-stock dates and quantities, estimated shipping times, and the location the product is available from. In the gray bar beneath each product description, you’ll see the quantity entry field.
Tip: The prices you’ll see for all products is your standard pricing. If you have a job quote for a particular product, you’ll be able to see that job pricing in your cart when you select your price sheet.
Products coming from the Picoma mill show whether the product is in stock today or when it is expected to be back in stock.
Products coming from warehouse locations show how much is in stock today and how much will be added soon.
Tip: You can also check estimated shipping times for each product to help plan your purchases. Estimated shipping times refer to transit time only, based on the product being in stock. If the product is not currently in stock, the product’s availability lead time must be considered. Once you add items to your cart, you will see more specific information and estimated arrival dates in your cart details.
Add to cart
Enter the quantity for each product you want to order in the “QTY” field in the gray bar directly below the product name. As you shop for products, you can create multiple carts, giving you the ability to start and organize multiple orders at once.
When you enter the desired quantity, Z-Commerce will calculate the weight in pounds, and the row will turn green indicating that you can now add it to your cart.
Click on the red shopping cart icon at the bottom right corner of your screen to add all selected products (highlighted in green) to your cart at once. You can add to an existing cart or create a new one.
Tip: You can only add multiple products to your cart at once if they are all being shipped from the same location (either the Picoma mill or a local warehouse). If you try to enter quantities for products from different ship from locations, you’ll be prompted with an error message.

If you want to reorder products from a past PO, you can quickly copy that order to a new cart.Go to the "Buy/Ship" page in the main navigation and click the "Build cart from PO" button at the top right of the "Carts" section of the page.
