NASMM Launches New Online Marketplace
NASMM is pleased to announce the launch of our brand new Online market place — an online store that provides a one-stop-shop for accessing over a million products and services from a diverse portfolio of supplier partners.

These products and services offer aggressively negotiated pricing and terms and conditions than most of our members could likely secure on their own. And when you shop the NASMM eMarketplace, the suppliers return a modest portion of their profits back to NASMM, providing valuable funding toward fulfilling our collective mission.

The eMarketplace has features and functions designed to save you time and money:

  • Catalog-based search function lets you buy like a procurement professional
  • User-created shopping lists provide easy access to commonly purchased items
  • Powerful reporting tools help you better manage spending
  • Single checkout process makes it quick and easy to buy from multiple suppliers

To begin shopping, simply visit the "Business Solutions" page of "MyNASMM" and click on the NASMM Marketplace option.
