Definitions

Hosted Catalog Suppliers - suppliers provide Clemson with product listings and Clemson pricing for an electronic catalog, allowing you to shop easily across multiple suppliers and to conduct price comparisons.

Punch-Out Suppliers - an integrated supplier with a direct link from buyWays to a custom website created specifically for Clemson.  Shoppers can easily search for products, obtain quotes and add products to their carts from these punch-out suppliers.

e-PO Transmitted Suppliers - a supplier that receives an electronic transmission of the order placed in buyWays.  The order is electronically transferred from buyWays to the supplier's ordering system for processing. There is no manual intervention.

eInvoice Suppliers - some suppliers electronically create their invoice in buyWays.  These suppliers will electronically transfer their invoice from their system directly into buyWays.  Electronic invoices are identified as created by 'System' in the invoice history tab. These einvoices will not pay until the receipt has been completed in buyWays.  Refer to the invoicing nuances document for more information.

Product Search Tool - products from these suppliers are searchable in the shop tab - both simple and advanced search.

ePayment Suppliers -payment is made directly into the supplier's preferred banking account.

All Other Suppliers Defined - all vendors that have conducted business with Clemson within the past two years are available in buyWays.  In most cases, orders to these suppliers would be done by using one of the custom forms (i.e. Non-Catalog Form) located on the clemson forms link on the home/shop page of buyWays.
