My Order

How do I check the status of my order?

After you place an order and it has been processed for delivery, you'll receive a confirmation email. The confirmation will contain the expected delivery date, your shipping address, your order number and any other relevant information.

Or, if you're logged in to®, click on "Order Status" and select the appropriate order for tracking information. If we need your help to resolve any problems with your order, we'll contact you by phone. If we can't reach you right away, we'll contact you by email.

Note, the Order Status information for orders, catalog orders and Staples® Ship Center Orders does not necessarily represent the final order — especially if any changes were made due to product availability, credit card authorization, tax and coupons. This information should be used only for your own reference. It cannot be used for tax or billing purposes.
