If you receive the error message “This Customer Number is already tied to another member’s profile” when trying to create or update a new account, this means that you already have an existing account using that Customer Number.

Try to log into the existing account. You can request your original “My Account” password if you forgot it.

Why don't my most recent orders appear in the “My Account” profile?

We want you to be able to access details of all of your orders quickly and easily. If you ordered by phone, or if you ordered online without first signing into your “My Account” profile, your order may not automatically appear in your “My Account” profile.

However, you can add your order details to your “My Account” profile manually.

Find and make a note of the Customer Number, Order Number and Zip Code for your order. You can find this information in your “Order Confirmation” email.

   1. Click the following link: My Account.
   2. Type your user name and current password, and then click Sign In.
   3. Under "My Orders" (first option on the right side), click "Order Status."
   4. Click "Find Missing Orders" (option on the bottom left side).
   5. Fill in the required fields.
   6. Click "Add Customer Number."

Note: To help ensure that details of your future orders appear in your “My Account” profile, follow these guidelines:

Sign into your “My Account” profile before ordering online. When you're ordering by phone, tell the Dell representative the Customer Number for your “My Account” profile, and ask that they use it to place your order.
