Amazon Business Punchout

REMINDER: Departments are still able to use their PCard to participate in UCLA’s Amazon Business program and make Amazon Business purchases. We encourage your team to choose the method that best works for you. This page is specific to BruinBuy Plus' Amazon Business punchout.


 Amazon Business is the business supply purchasing platform for Amazon. Within BruinBuy Plus, Amazon is a punchout vendor and provides users the opportunity to purchase a deeper and wider selection of items than what is normally found in's personal shopping catalog. 

NOTE: Punchout vendor catalogs are accessed through the BruinBuy Plus Home Shopping Dashboard. Once selected, you will automatically be routed (i.e., punched out) to the vendor’s website and then brought back to BruinBuy Plus to check out.
