Morgantown W.Va. — WVUBuy will no longer be available for new purchases as of 5 p.m. Thursday, July 11, when it will be replaced with a much more intuitive, easy-to-use system called Mountaineer Marketplace. The new system will be available to all employees through MyAccess starting Monday, July 18.
WVUBuy will remain accessible for 60 days for receiving and administrative processes only. All new purchases should be made through Mountaineer Marketplace.
Any employee who has shopped Amazon or another online vendor will be familiar with how to fill a shopping cart and check out. Shoppers can order the supplies currently available through WVUBuy by logging into Mountaineer Marketplace and searching for their items, or by selecting the specific vendor’s catalog. This includes stationery and business cards, which are accessible through catalogs on the home shopping screen.
Mountaineer Marketplace does NOT require a PCard or any post-transaction paperwork. Because the system is integrated with MAP, it knows who you are and will automatically route your request for the proper approvals.
