Purchasing Goods via Amazon Business

Expense Management

NYU has partnered with Amazon Business for Education in the creation of a centralized NYU Amazon Business for Education account for any purchases made on Amazon on behalf of the University using your P-Cards. The centralized account allows users to benefit from discounted pricing and free Amazon Prime membership.

Requesting Access to Amazon Business

  1. To set up an Amazon Business account, please contact the Steinhardt Finance team at
  2. You will be sent an invitation email to join NYU`s Amazon Business account with steps on how to setup your account and link a University P-Card in order to make purchases.

Please Note:
​​​​​​​Purchases made through NYU’s Amazon Business for Education account must be for NYU business only and must be paid for with an NYU payment card (P-Card). Please review NYU’s Business Expense Policy to ensure that all expenses incurred are compliant with university policy. No personal purchases of any kind are permitted, and personal credit cards and email addresses must not be added to the account as this is a violation of NYU policy. Non-compliance with NYU policy and the guidance listed above will result in immediate suspension of the user’s account and possible investigation by internal audit and compliance.

Users can be added to Amazon as Requestors who place orders, or as Approvers who review and approve orders placed by others. Departments and units may set up custom approval processes depending on their needs.
