iBuyNU Login Change - July 2014


As of July 14, Shoppers who enter iBuyNU via the NUPortal won't need to log in to iBuyNU.

  • If you have Shopper security access, once you log into the NUPortal with your NetID, you will be able to click through directly to iBuyNU from the Financial section's Purchasing tab.
  • The first time you try to access iBuyNU as of 7/14 you will need to clear your browser cache.
  • If you have a browser favorite/bookmark to iBuyNU, you will need to delete and re-set it.
  • If you access iBuyNU directly (from a bookmark, not via the NUPortal) you will need to log into iBuyNU using your NetID and NetID password instead of your iBuyNU password.
  • Requesters will continue to access iBuyNU via NUFinancials.
  • New to iBuyNU? For training and security access, see the Procurement (Purchasing) section on Getting Started.
