About Marketplace

The E-Commerce unit of the Cash and Treasury Services Department strives to provide University departments with a secure and convenient way to extend their business operations to the World Wide Web. Our goal is to provide a secure environment that allows buyers and sellers to connect electronically, making it easy for students, parents, alumni, and the community to do business with Clemson.

Marketplace, hosted by TouchNet Information Systems, Inc., will serve as the University's' main E-Commerce service provider. The use of Marketplace helps us to accomplish our mission by providing an E-Commerce solution that is Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant. It is both secure and cost-effective, and allows departments to easily operate online storefronts to sell products or accept online payments.

CU Marketplace launched in 2013 to provide University departments an avenue to secure and process online payments. Since its launch, it has seen processed revenue exceed $50,000,000 and has attracted over 200 Clemson University departments to utilize its features.

Marketplace Features

Dynamic Pricing

Dynamic pricing allows you to offer different pricing options for the same product. The price is changed automatically depending upon which options the customer selects. This gives you the ability to offer different pricing tiers for conferences or size and color selections for merchandise. It adds convenience to the customer because the calculations are done for them and all payments can be made at once.
