If you are registered with and paying through the NC E-Procurement System, orders will be sent to us through the system.

We do not require a Publication Sales form with purchase orders as long as the item numbers, titles, contact phone number and ship-to address are included on the PO. However, you may fill out the following form to help with your totals:

Prepaid Order Form — Form fillable Acrobat Reader version. Download to your computer and launch in Acrobat Reader (saves more consistently than attempting to fill and save in your web browser). 

Purchase orders will be invoiced. Please note: the actual cost of shipping plus applicable sales tax will be added to the invoice. Actual shipping costs are based on UPS charges billed to the agency.

Purchase orders cannot be taken over the phone.

Credit Card / P-Card Orders

Credit Card / P-Card Orders

Mastercard, Visa and P-Card purchases must be made by telephone. For security reasons, do not email or mail credit card numbers.

During COVID-19 work-from-home orders, please email publications@dpi.nc.gov that you would like to place an order by credit card. Include your phone number, and a good time you can be reached. Because we are fulfilling orders on Thursdays, we prefer to run your card on Wednesdays & will email you a receipt. 

Buyers using credit cards are encouraged to fill out our Prepaid Order Form in advance and email it to publications@dpi.nc.gov. We will call you as soon as we’ve looked over your form & confirmed it’s accuracy for your credit card information. 

Credit card orders will include 20% shipping and the applicable sales tax for your county. 

Prepaid Order Form — Form fillable Acrobat Reader version. Download to your computer and launch in Acrobat Reader (saves more consistently than attempting to fill and save in your web browser). 

Prepaid Order Form — No form fields. If the form-fillable version does not work for you, you can print this version, fill out by hand & email us a scanned copy.
