TUmarketplace allows authorized Temple University staff to:

  • shop at anytime from any computer with an internet connection
  • select commodities from Temple University contracted vendors
  • compare prices
  • store products in a draft cart
  • keep track of items frequently ordered in the My Favorites folder
  • combine orders from different vendors into one shopping cart
  • take advantage of automatic payment and fast shipping
  • track new orders and refer to previous orders
  • generate reports to monitor expenditures

Commodities available from Temple University’s contracted vendors include scientific and lab supplies, computer hardware and software, maintenance, repair, operating supplies and more. This service reduces many Temple Purchasing Card (TPC) expenditures and drastically reduces expenditures on blanket orders.
