2. Do the payment. Before arranging payment, if you have not registered the account of our website, you can place an order by checking as guest. The system automatically registers an account for you on our website and sends the password to your mail box. Consequently, you can place an order on our website in a normal way.

3. After you pay successfully, please enter my account to check the status of your order list. And ensure the order is in the status of processing.

4. Upload Gerber files. Click “View Order” to enter your order and upload your Gerber file. Please note that file must be compressed in zip or rar format, and less than 2MB.

You can upload several Gerber files in a same PCB service by choosing different parameters of QTY. For example, if you have purchased three PCB prototyping service, you can upload a Gerber for one of them, and another Gerber for the other two of them.

QTY represents the quantity of the purchased service. The PCB with different sizes provides different quantity of board. For example, 2LAYER GREEN PCB 5CM X 5CM MAX (SKU: IM120418001), each QTY represents ten boards; however, 2LAYER PCB LARGER THAN 20CM X 20CM (SKU:IM120418011), each QTY service can only get five boards. Please see their pages description for more details.
