Setting up your Account / Technical Support


How do I create an account?

To create an account, click the "Sign In" button in the top toolbar. Then, click the "Create Account" button and complete the form. If your company currently has an account with Schaedler Yesco, your Web user account can be tied to it. Simply answer "yes" to align your account. Have your company name and account number handy. (You can still set up your user account if you don't know your account number.)

 

I'm a Schaedler Yesco customer, but I want to start ordering online. Do I need to create an online account?

If your company has ordered from Schaedler Yesco in the past, you may already have an online account that is tied to your recent order history. Simply answer "yes" to align your account. Have your company name and account number handy. (You can still set up your user account if you don't know your account number.)  If not, we'll set it up for you!

 

Not sure that you have an account or whether your account is still active? 

To determine if you have an online ordering account, simply try to log in with your email address and what you think the password may be.  If your password doesn’t work, click on “Forgot Password.”  If you have an account, you will receive instructions to reset your password.  If you don’t get an email to reset the password, you do not have an account and will need to set one up.

 

I received a message that a user with my email address is already registered on SYDIST.com. How is this possible?

If you received a message that your email address has already been registered, you may have a pre-existing account with Schaedler Yesco that was automatically created to transition you from the old system to our new system. Enter your email address for username. To retrieve your password, click the "Forgot Password?" link on the Sign In page. Your new, temporary password will be sent to the email address associated with your account. You will be prompted to choose a permanent password upon your next login. ** Use caution.   If your company uses a group email, be sure you review the password change with your group. 

 

Having trouble signing in? 

You may be pre-registered as part of the transition from the old system to our new system. Try the "Forgot Password?" and "Forgot Username?" tools on our Sign In page. If you still need assistance, please contact our Technical Support team.

 

I forgot my password. What do I do?

If you've forgotten your password, click the "Forgot Password?" link on the Sign In page. A new, temporary password will be sent to the email address associated with your account. You will be prompted to choose a permanent password upon your next login. 

 

I forgot my username. What do I do?

Your user name is the email address associated with your account.  If you don’t know the email used with your account, please contact our Technical Support team.
