What to Expect :

Here are some of the main differences you’ll notice when you start using borderstates.com



We’re moving all Western Extralite product to Border States’ e-commerce site, and so the products you rely on will be available as of April 3rd. We’re also moving over the Western Extralite part number, so you can search by that, as well as by Border States part number or manufacturer part number.


Financial management

There is no on line Financial Statement available. However, you can search all new orders and invoices, active quotes and proof of delivery. Note that your past order history will not be moving to the new site.


Pricing Visibility


to see pricing and availability, you must log into the site, then select a bill-to address, payer address, and ship-to address. If you don’t log in, you can search and browse product content, but cannot see availability and price.



You’ll be able to search by manufacturer part number, BSE part number, or Western Extralite part number.


Reorder Pad

There’s no exact capability in Border States e-commerce that matches the Western Extralite reorder pad capability. However, you may browse to any item found on an invice, quote or order by clicking that item; from there it's a simple click to "add to cart". Additionally, the My List feature lets a customer create a custom list of their frequently purchased products on the site.


RoboCrib E-commerce App: Downloading the mobile app gives you some specialized features for mobile, like searching using your phone’s camera to scan a UPC code.
