Managing OVHcloud orders

Find out how to manage your OVHcloud orders

Last updated 29th May 2020


When you place an order, you can track and manage it from your OVHcloud Control Panel.

This guide will explain how to manage your orders.

Depending on your place of residence and its local legislation, as well as the products concerned, some details may vary from the information provided in this guide, and some information may not apply to your situation. If you need to, please refer to your OVHcloud contracts, which you can access from the Control Panel by going to My services, then Contracts.



Purchase order

A purchase order is generated when you place an order. It lists the products ordered, their price, and any reductions or promo offers that have been applied.

Number Description
1 All of the information related to the purchase order is listed here: its number, its creation date and its expiry date. Please note that expired purchase orders will no longer appear in your Control Panel.
2 If you are logged in to the Control Panel when you place the order, the billing contact will appear here. For further information on the different contact types, please read this guide.
3 If you have set a default payment method, it will be offered here. If your product is renewed automatically, a default payment method is required.
4 Here, you will find the available payment methods. We can only offer the payment methods authorised in the account’s country of origin, or those linked to the account type.

You can view your purchase order at any time in the OVHcloud Control Panel, as explained below.
