Tech Shop has partnered with U-M Procurement to provide shipping to your home address when ordering with a departmental Shortcode.

For any products in the Tech Shop catalog, simply use the standard checkout process, choose Shortcode for your payment option, and enter your desired shipping address.

If you need products not available through the Tech Shop catalog, we can also facilitate direct shipping service for products in the following M-Marketsite punchout catalogs:

  • Apple (custom configurations only)
  • CDW-G
  • B&H Photography Supplies

These orders require a special process, as M-Marketsite does not allow for shipping to residential addresses. If your desired product is not found in the Tech Shop catalog, please follow the appropriate process outlined below to place your order.

Please be aware that we cannot offer returns on any products ordered through M-Marketsite punchout catalogs. If you are not sure what you need, please contact us for assistance before you order.

Special Order Process

Be sure to shop the Tech Shop catalog first when making a departmental purchase. The following processes are for ordering products not currently available through Tech Shop.

MiWorkspace Customers

Follow your unit’s normal technology equipment ordering procedure.

Non-MiWorkspace customers, follow the steps below.

Order Apple Products

If you are ordering Apple products, please shop from the Tech Shop catalog and use our normal checkout process. Select Shortcode as your payment option, and we will ship to the delivery address you select.

If you require a custom-configured Apple product that does not appear in the Tech Shop catalog, please use the following steps:

  1. Visit M-Marketsite and log in with your U-M credentials.
  2. Select desired products(s) from the Apple punchout catalog(s) — located under the Office Supplies/​Computer heading — and configure with desired specifications. Add configured products to your cart.
  3. Go to your cart and expand the Specifications link(s) under the configured product description. Take a screenshot of your cart contents (Mac: Shift + Command + 3 | PC: Windows + Shift + S). All desired products and custom specifications must be visible.
  4. Email the screenshot to our Purchasing and Inventory Supervisor, Sheryl Fogarty (sfogarty).
  5. Tech Shop staff will supply you with an exclusive item number for your custom order, usually within 72 business hours, which will include all items contained in the screenshot you submitted. Use this item number to search the Tech Shop catalog and place your order through our regular checkout process. Select Shortcode as your payment option, and we will ship to the delivery address you select.

Order Tech Products from CDW-G and B&H Photo

If you have hardware needs not available from Tech Shop, you can order through the CDW-G or B&H Photo M-Marketsite punchout catalogs.

Follow the steps outlined below, and Tech Shop staff will facilitate direct shipping to your home address:

  1. Visit M-Marketsite and log in with your U-M credentials.
  2. Select products from the CDW-G and/or B&H Photography Supplies punchout catalog(s) — located under the Office Supplies/​Computer heading — and add to cart.
  3. When your cart is complete, return to the M-Marketsite main catalog page and choose Checkout from the cart icon.
  4. Provide departmental Shortcode and an on-campus ship-to address. This is not the address we will ship to; it is simply required by the system.
  5. Edit the "Dept Ref #" with the following information:
    • recipient name
    • complete delivery address
    • phone number
  6. Select Assign Cart. Assign the cart to our Purchasing and Inventory Supervisor, Sheryl Fogarty (sfogarty).
    • If ordering from CDW-G, an order confirmation email will be sent directly from CDW-G. Order status can be checked through the CDW-G M-Marketsite portal.
    • If ordering from B&H Photo, you will be cc’d on an email message from Sheryl Fogarty (sfogarty) to B&H Photo confirming the order and delivery address. Order status can be checked through the B&H Photo M-Marketsite portal; order number and related phone number will be required to use this feature.

The departmental shortcode provided in step 4 will be invoiced by the supplier, and your order will be shipped directly from the supplier to the address provided in step 5.
