Purchasing Options Details

All of these account details can be modified by an account administrator. Unlimited purchasers and request only users do not have access to the Users and Permissions page. To save changes, you will need to provide your administrator password.

  • Allow Unlimited Purchases: This allows a user to make purchases without any limitations or approvals.
  • Only Request Purchases: This limits a user to requesting purchases. All purchase requests will be submitted to an approver via email (selected in the default purchase request approver section). The approver is then able to access the purchase request, make any modifications, and approve or deny the order.
  • Limit Purchases: This allows limitations to be set on the dollar amount per order, or the amount spent in a certain time period. Orders over the set amount will automatically be sent to the approver. Anything under that amount will be submitted as an order to Fastenal.
  • Purchase Request Approvers: These are the users on the account that have been granted purchase request approval privileges. One or more approvers can be selected to receive order requests. An email notification will be sent to them once the request is submitted. Multiple levels of requesters can be set.
