Buying and Payment Guide

Buying and Payment Guide Purchases/Payments of most goods and services can be made in the UShop application. This online marketplace is specifically designed for our campus to replace paper-dependent and outdated P2P processes. UShop remembers basic information about the shopper, their department, accounting specifics, and past orders to streamline each transaction. Purchasing data compiled within UShop helps us improve future contracts and pricing from our suppliers. We have created a one-stop online shopping cart experience for goods and services provided by both on-campus suppliers as well as outside vendors serving our campus.
