The Johns Hopkins University eMarketplace
Amazon Business is The Johns Hopkins University's primary eMarketplace solution. Through a function referred to as "Negotiated Pricing", vendors can offer preferred pricing available only to the JHU account. Accessing this pricing is as simple as searching Amazon, as these pre-negotiated prices will be returned in search results, listed as such on item detail pages, and displayed at checkout. Hosting our negotiated pricing within the larger Amazon Business allows end users to compare our preferred pricing to the market, which encourages product selection based upon greatest value. Amazon Business as an eMarketplace solution provides choice and transparency to our end users so that they may effectively purchase the products required for their mission.
Amazon Business is available to both end users with the Shopping Cart role (ZESC_SR_RQR_ALL) in SAP and those who hold a University Procurement Card (P-Card)
