Prices

Prices displayed in UQeMarket are current and are updated regularly by suppliers.

Some products, like equipment that may need to be customised, may be listed as 'POA' (price on application).

Where an item is marked POA, seek a quote from the respective supplier and input the order as a free format order. Read the UQeMarket user guide (PDF, 3.7MB) (staff login required) for instructions.

Quotes

There is no need for a quote to buy through UQeMarket because the listed product details and prices are equivalent to a quote.

You may still need to get a quote for:

  • products that are listed as ‘POA’ (price on application)
  • recurrent or periodic ‘standing’ orders
  • customised equipment orders
  • bulk or high volume of product.

You can submit a quote as a free format order. Read the UQeMarket user guide (PDF, 3.7MB) (staff login required) for instructions.

Volume pricing

Some suppliers offer ‘price breaks’, which give you lower unit prices when you order products in certain multiples. When ordering an item with a price-break, the unit price will automatically adjust.

Found a product cheaper?

Occasionally, you may find a product that is cheaper outside of UQeMarket. This may be because:

  • it hasn’t included other cost factors, like maintenance, consumables, delivery, installation and disposal
  • it hasn’t included special benefits, like extended warranty, better-quality components, upgrades or local support
  • the terms and conditions are more favourable to the supplier
  • the supplier is getting rid of old stock
  • there are compatibility issues
  • the product is a different quality or standard to the one sold in UQeMarket; it may not meet Australian atandards.

Searching by a manufacturer’s part number will display all suppliers who have that product listed on their catalogue and allows you to quickly compare pricing.

If the price difference is significant, contact the UQeMarket team.
