CSUBUY is Coming on June 1, 2020



On June 1st, CSUBUY will replace ESM Campus Marketplace as our purchasing platform to apply contract pricing for CSU suppliers.

What will be different?

The CSUBUY platform will look different than current marketplace, but the supplier catalogs and purchasing process will remain the same as before.

What to expect and how to prepare for the transition?

  • The last day to place orders in ESM Campus Marketplace is May 25th. At the end of the day, the marketplace will be disabled and users will not be able to place new or to finish orders in that system. Please plan accordingly for ordering supplies during the shutdown. If you have an urgent purchasing request, then email Contracts and Procurement Services at strategicsourcing-c-ps@sjsu.edu for assistance.
  • All current Campus Marketplace users, those with ProCard and Transfer Cart access, will be moved to the new CSUBUY. No action is required by users for this task at this time. We will send an announcement requesting you to activate your account as we get closer to go-live.
  • Purchasing history in Campus Marketplace will not be transferred to CSUBUY. If you need a copy of a completed Campus Marketplace order, please contact FinanceConnect for assistance.
  • Users will be able to place orders in CSUBUY on June 1st!!

We’ve put together a quick reference guide to outline the old and new look between the two marketplaces.

Also, we’ve scheduled Zoom-based walkthrough sessions for Friday, May 29 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. to provide you with an opportunity to explore the new process and have questions answered. Register in the session now. We will schedule more sessions in the upcoming weeks.
