Q: How do I Solder?
A: See How to Solder.
Q: How do I pay for food or components?
A: To buy things at OV you must be a member (see above). However, non-members can buy components (not food) for at least 50 NOK. This means you can either add something else to your order or pay extra for what you already have.
Q: Can I get a invoice for my company?
A: Yes, organisations and companies can request an Invoice Account. However, this is only available if the organisation intends to do purchases at OV multiple times. If not, it is probably easier to pay as a member and get refund from the organisation/company.
