Benefits of Shop@UW

Shop@UW is reminiscent of e-commerce sites like that allow users to search items and return results from various suppliers. Shop@UW will allow customers to make more informed procurement decisions while reducing the time it takes to shop for products.

Other benefits include:

  • Single site and single log-in to order from multiple vendors
  • Transactions are billed directly to a department account-no pcard or PO required
  • Side-by-side product and price comparison;
  • Ability to search on specific attributes, such as CAS number, SKU, manufacturer and unit of measure;
  • Simple re-ordering using "Favorites"
  • Ability to reallocate funding source prior to expenses posting to SFS using PAT

Changes to your Shop@UW cart!

There are changes coming to how your cart will look at checkout when using Shop@UW in order to be in compliance with federal accounting standards and guidance.  Historically, specific discounts from each Shop@UW vendor funded the operational costs of the Materials Distribution Services (MDS) that supports the purchase of the products ordered through Shop@UW.  These discounts are in addition to the discounts that were negotiated with each of the vendors as part of the procurement process.  To provide complete transparency to Shop@UW users, UW has decided to pass these discounts along to Shop@UW customers.  A MDS Service Assessment will also be calculated to recover only the costs of the Shop@UW operation, and will be adjusted annually. An example of the new cart view is below:
