Getting Started

University of Cincinnati, UC Health, Cincinnati Children's Hospital or Cincinnati State users register an account by submitting their contact information, and choosing a “site” for their account. Your site is your department or division. All the account numbers we have on file for the units listed are linked to the appropriate sites. When your registration is submitted, you will receive an email confirmation. Once a member of our team has reviewed your application, your account will be activated, and all the appropriate account numbers will be made available to you to use for placing orders.

External clients (those who are members of the general community, and not employees of UC, UC Health, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, or Cincinnati State) should choose Credit Card/ACH as their site. When your orders are ready, you will receive an email containing a link to our online Store, where you can pay for your work by processing a credit card, or ACH transaction.
