Effective Immediately: Staples Process Change for Ordering Office Supplies

Staples Process Change for Ordering Office Supplies


  1. PDF is available that outlines the changes for ordering office supplies.
  2. The Staples supplier sticker is now located in the punch-out showcase because of the change from a hosted catalog to a punch-out catalog.

  3. When searching for office supplies from Staples, do not use the Shop & Compare search field at the top of Shop@UW. Go to the Staples punch-out to search for office supplies.

    Do not use Shop & Compare; go to Staples punch-out search instead

  4. Click on the Staples supplier sticker in the “Shop at a Punch-out Supplier Catalog” area where the shopper is redirected to the Staples punch-out website.
