Mountaineer Marketplace


All WVU employees may shop online and compare prices offered by the University’s most frequently used suppliers. Mountaineer Marketplace can be used to purchase office supplies, lab supplies, computers, facility items, stationery, business cards and more.

Anyone who has used Amazon or another online vendor will be familiar with how to fill a shopping cart and check out. Shoppers can search for specific items or select a vendor catalog.

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. WVUBuy is now available only for receiving and administrative processes.
