How to Sign in or Create Your Account at CompactAppliance
To get started, simply click the "Create an Account or Log In" link found in the upper right-hand corner of every page. You'll be taken to a page called "Log In or Create an Account". If you've already created a CompactAppliance account, follow the directions under "I have an Account.". If you need to create an account, follow the directions under "Create a New Account".
Your Account Summary Page
The Account Summary Page is "command central" for Your Account. Protected by your password, the Account Summary page lets you view and modify all the information associated with Your Account.
Your password helps keep the information you enter in Your Account private and secure. Choose a password of at least 6 letters and numbers. It should be a word that's easy for you to remember. (And you shouldn't share it with anyone else.)
If you forget your password, please click here and we will e-mail you a temporary password to the e-mail address registered with your account. After you log in with the temporary password, you will be asked to create a new password.
To change your password, you'll need to enter your current password before you can create a new one.
Billing/Contact information and Shipping information
When you create Your Account, you have the opportunity to enter some basic contact billing and shipping information. This information is used to make ordering on our site easier and to help avoid delays if we need to contact you about your order. CompactAppliance will never share any of this information without your permission.
CompactAppliance offers a free, informative e-mail newsletter as well as the opportunity to receive occasional messages about specials offers, savings, new site features and the like. Your Account makes it easy to keep your subscription preferences up to date. CompactAppliance will never share your e-mail address without your permission.
Using "Remember Me"
If you check the "Remember Me" box on "Your Account," the CompactAppliance website will remember you whenever you visit our site from the computer on which you originally created your account. When you return to our site, the last vehicle viewed will be ready for you, as will the items in the Cart.
To take advantage of this feature, your computer must have cookies enabled.
Your Wish List is the place to save the gear you're thinking about today, but won't be ready to order until later. You can easily use CompactAppliance's Wish List to plan your car audio or home theater system- it's a great way to keep track of the items you're considering.
You can also e-mail your Wish List to a friend - who knows, maybe they'll treat you to your dream system. (Plus, if you've bought from CompactAppliance before, and your friend places a first-time order with us for $200 or more, you'll both save $20. See details here.)
To purchase an item on your Wish List , simply click the Add To Cart button next to the item on the Wish List. You'll then see the item appear in your Cart.
Privacy and Security
Your password, and your billing, contact and shipping information are completely private and secure. CompactAppliance will never share any of your information without your permission. If you choose to use Your Account's "Remember Me" feature, your current vehicle and the contents of your Cart and Wish List will be visible when you return the CompactAppliance website. For your protection, however, any other Your Account information will be available to you only after you type in your password.
