Customized Option with Preferred Vendor

If you have departmental funds and have a more specific need than uStore can provide, your department or campus group can contract with a preferred vendor that has a relationship with TouchNet/Marketplace. Your vendor will create a custom solution for you that allows detailed information to be collected while providing a secure on-line payment via TouchNet. Click below for a list of TouchNet’s preferred vendors.

A list of TouchNet Ready Partners

Your preferred vendor partners with TouchNet to ensure transaction security and appropriate integration with the schools financial system (Banner). If your preferred vendor does not already have a TouchNet connection with Macalester, there will be a one-time $1250 set-up fee that the department will be required to pay with departmental funds. For more information on vendors and this option, click the “Request more information on customized options” button below.


Macalester Web Services

Macalester Web Services creates a custom site that allows detailed information to be collected while providing a secure on-line payment via TouchNet.

Macalester provides this type of service for large campus-wide initiatives such as Annual Fund donation collection. The development timeline will take longer to complete than a uStore request. This option will not be available for everyone.  If you choose this option contact Web Services at:
