Finding Your Product: The Categories

The products we sell are divided into four different categories: Equipment, Parts, Supplies, & Tools.  Another category takes you to a list of products currently on sale.

  • Equipment: Packaged heating and cooling equipment. This is where you will find air-conditioners, furnaces, heat pumps, air handlers, and other motor-bearing HVAC products. 
  • Parts: Replacement parts, peripherals, and accessories for HVAC equipment.  You can find compressors, motors, line sets, and other products needed for the installation and maintenance of HVAC equipment.
  • Supplies:  Tape, Nu-Calgon chemicals, electrical wire, and connectors, and other support products.
  • Tools: Hand tools and power tools, meters, and other instruments to help you get your work done.

 

Is it in stock?

When browsing products in a category, you can filter out items that are not in-stock by checking the “Show Only In Stock Items” box located at the top of the page (see picture.)



 

Too Many Items?

Some categories have a lot of items in them, and it can be hard to find the specific item that is right for you.  You can filter out the items you don’t want to see with the sidebar on the left side of the screen.

Want to find a specific 13 SEER, 2-ton air conditioner?  There are hundreds of units in the AC category and it can take a long time to find the right one.  If you filter out the items you don’t need you can save time.

  • On the left side of the screen there is a window labeled “Filter Your Search.” You can filter the items that show up on the screen by different attributes.  These attributes will be different depending on which category you are browsing.
  • One of the options here (for AC units) is “SEER,” another is “Tonnage.”
  • Click “SEER.”  This will expand, showing a menu of all available SEER ratings.  Click “13.”  The page will re-load.  Now you will only see the 13 SEER AC units O'Connor has for sale.
  • Click “Tonnage.”  This will also expand.  Click “2.”  Now only the 13 SEER units that are 2-ton will be visible.
  • The number of products has been narrowed from 100 to less than 10.  This makes it much easier to find exactly what you want.

Active filters of your search are on the left side of the screen, with a red “X” next to them.  Click on the red X to remove the search filter.

Nonstock Item?

These items are not stockable in your location but may be in other O'Connor branch locations.  We may be able to sell you one, but you will have to call your branch to place the order.

Product Search

Another method of finding the item you're looking for is the search function.  The search bar is in the top right corner of every page of OCShop. You can search by a keyword, by the item number, or by part of the item number as pictured here:

OCShop will suggest search results based on what you have entered into the search bar, giving you a list of candidate items to choose from.  Clicking the magnifying glass icon next to the search bar will give you a more detailed list of your search results.

Search is one of the fastest ways to use OCShop if you are familiar with the part numbers of product you want to purchase.

Making a Purchase

When you find an item you want to purchase, select the number you want to buy and click “add to cart.”  The item will be saved into your order (your shopping cart.)  When you’re done shopping and are ready to place your order, it's time to view your shopping cart, to review your order.  You can get to the shopping cart by clickling on your cart, which is in the upper right corner of the screen, or from the drop-down menu that appears when holding your mouse cursor over the "Shopping" tab on the navigation bar. 
 

Adding items to your cart

 

Two places to click to get to your shopping cart.

You can now review your order and make any final changes.  You can also continue shopping by selecting the categories on the left-hand menu.  If you want to cancel your order, press the “delete cart” button.  This will remove your entire order from the system.  There is also a drop-down menu of shipping options on this page as well.

When you’re ready to send in your order, go to your cart, and press the “checkout” button in the bottom right corner of your cart screen.  You will then be asked to verify your shipping and billing information.  If this is all in order, press “continue.” You can then confirm and place your order.  

 
Your shopping cart.

The next step is the checkout process, which is divided into three pages.  On the first checkout page, you can review your shipping details as well as add notes to individual products.

You can save multiple shipping addresses here, allowing you to quickly select where you want the product to be shipped.  If no addresses are present, or the address you want to send the product to isn't present, press the button labeled "Enter An Address" to create the new destination.  Clicking the "Continue" button takes you to the next step of the checkout process.

 

 
 The first checkout page




The second checkout page is where you can select your delivery method and payment options.  There is only currently one option for payment method, which is "on account."  This will default you to your current payment method used when placing any normal order. 

There are three delivery options:
Best Way - This is standard O'Connor shipping by a shipping carrier hired by O'Connor.  This is recommended for deliveries.

Customer Pickup - Orders will be assembled at your default O'Connor branch, and prepared for you to pick them up.

O'Connor Delivery - This option is only viable in Lenexa for certain situations.  The O'Connor company will send the item on the O'Connor delivery truck.  Orders that cannot be delivered this way will be automatically changed to a "Best Way" method.

 

 
 Checkout page 2

The third checkout page allows you to review your order, address, and shipping methods one last time before finally placing it.  Check for errors in your order or details.  If you are satisfied, click the "Finish Checkout" button, and the order will be finalized.  You will then receive a confirmation e-mail shortly.
