Setting up for trading through uniBuy is a straightforward process. Use the following steps, guides and tutorials to assist you.
Step 1. Do you have an HE sector contract?
No - unfortunately you will be unable to trade through uniBuy. [uniBuy is a market place for suppliers that have already won a tender to supply the Higher & Further Education sectors. New tendering opportunities are advertised through the institutions, regional purchasing consortia (LUPC, SUPC, NEUPC, NWUPC, APUC, HEPCW, CPC), In-tend and the European Journal.]
Step 2. Do you have a National or local contract?
Local - If you have a local agreement with an institution you should ask them if they would put you onto uniBuy as a local contract. Once they have done this proceed to Step 3.
Step 3. Contact supplier adoption.
Supplier adoption will provide you with a simple registration form.
Step 4. Return the registration form to supplier adoption.
You will then be provided with login details for your uniBuy website (control centre).
Step 5. Log in to your uniBuy control centre and build your site.
Step 6. Provide a catalogue of your CONTRACTED products and prices.
Step 7. Set up a merchant account.

Step 9. Testing Complete
Once testing is complete institutions will be informed your company is available for trading through uniBuy.
Step 10. Inform your customers they can trade with you through uniBuy.
