Alcoholic Beverage Control Board

Information for Package Store Employees

 

A little history

In 2012 the Alaska State Legislature moved the ABC Board from the Department of Public Safety to the Department of Commerce. Part of the change is the implementation of a new security strategy for the package store employees who use the Written Orders application to record transactions with customers in damp communities.

Accessing the Department of Commerce Written Orders Web site

Under the new security rules, persons who need access to the Written Orders application will need a myAlaska account as a first step. Many Alaskans already have a myAlaska account to apply for their Permanent Fund dividend or to renew their auto license. Usually it will be better to have a separate “business” myAlaska account for access to the Written Orders application, but it will not be required.

Once you are set up in the new application, logging in will be the same as in the current application, except the login screen will look different.

Setting up a brand new account has three steps:

  1. Have the ABC Board create an account for you on the Written Orders system and issue you a Transfer Code (PIN). Each PIN is only to be used by the person who requests it, and it will only work one time.
  2. Create a myAlaska account. You must have a valid email address to create a myAlaska account.
  3. The fist time you visit the Written Orders Web site, use your PIN to confirm your identity.

That’s it. Details are at: Creating an ABC Written Orders myAlaska Account.

For existing users:

  1. Confirm your identity and contact Information with the ABC Board and you will be given your Transfer Code (PIN). Each PIN is only to be used by the person who requests it, and it will only work one time.
  2. Create a myAlaska account. You must have a valid email address to create a myAlaska account.
  3. The fist time you visit the Written Orders Web site, use your PIN to confirm your identity.
