  8. Review your order and click on "Submit Order": (Please note that during this step, the cost may appear as $0.00 – this is an existing bug within Service-now.com. Once the order is submitted, the license price will show on the confirmation screen.)

  9. You will then see the following summary screen. Note your request number for your records. If you close this window, you will have to log in again – we recommend you keep this open until after you approve the account holder agreement in the next step.
