Why create an account?
Creating an account at Quest Components is required, but gives you several benefits. With an account, you can:
- Save your shipping information for faster and easier checkouts
- Optionally save your credit card information for quick and secure payment
- Save shopping carts to be purchased later
- View previous and current orders
- Print invoices for previous and current orders
- Get a quote on items available to us
How do I create an account?
You can create an account here, or go to the Log In page and click "Create New Account".
In order to create an account you must enter your information for each field that contains a red asterisk. Fields without the asterisk are optional but highly recommended where applicable. The email address and password you enter will be used when you log in to your account.
For addresses within the United States: If you are entering an address within the United States, you will be prompted for your zip code first, once you enter that, a drop down box will appear and contain all cities within that zip code. Please choose the appropriate one. If for some reason your city does not appear, just choose the next best match.
If you are in California: If you are purchasing the items for resale, please enter your resale number in the Resale Number box that appears. If you do not have a resale number or if this is not for resale, your order will be charged tax. This applies to California addresses only.
For addresses outside of the United States: Once you choose the appropriate country, please fill in the address, city, region and zip (or postal) code. We realize that all countries do not always have all of this as part of an address, but please enter as much as you can. If we cannot ship an item because of missing address information, that will only slow down our shipping process as we contact you and ask for additional information.
We do not share your email address with anyone and you will only receive order confirmation emails and company closing schedules from Quest Components. Once you have entered all the information, click "Save" to create the account.

Credit Card Security
Storing credit cards with Quest Components is secure:
- Once you save a credit card number nobody (including the Quest Components staff) will be able to see the full card number.
- Your credit cards are protected using your password so they can only be accessed by you.
- Once an order is placed we can credit your card but we cannot add any additional charge unless you supply the credit card information again.
- The Quest Components website is scanned regularly to verify that it is secure.
For more information about shopping security at Quest Components, see Security under Ordering Security Info.
Saving a credit card
You can choose to save your credit card when you enter new credit card details during checkout by putting a check mark in the Remember My Card checkbox.
Using a saved credit card when ordering
When you check out, you will be able to choose from your saved credit cards on the payment page, or you can enter a new credit card. New credit cards will only be saved if you check ‘Remember My Card’ when entering them.
If want to log out of your account simply click “Sign Out” from the link in the top right hand corner of the screen.
