Mount Holyoke College Policy
Effective November 1, 2013 the College began requiring that employees purchasing on behalf of the institution using the @mtholyoke.edu email address will need to create a personal Amazon.com account in order to make future personal purchases due to the MA Sales Tax implications. All current and future purchases on Amzaon.com with an @mtholyoke.edu email address must have that Amazon account deemed "Tax Exempt" and must be done so through OPS.
Mount Holyoke College and Amazon have partnered to enable the Amazon Business Punchout Catalog in OPS effective July 1, 2015. Mount Holyoke College is the first institution of higher education in the United States to go live with the Amazon Business Punchout Catalog. If you do not yet have a user account in OPS please complete the User Access Application Form or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Tax: Occasionally a third party seller will charge tax. Amazon Tax Refund Procedures
Troubleshooting: Occasionally orders are halted in the system see Amazon Order Troubleshooting
IMPORTANT: Use of an email@example.com Amazon.com account for personal purchases is not permitted since it can jeopardize the Sales Tax Exempt status of Mount Holyoke College.
Under the current program Amazon Prime is part of the business package. Any additional memberships are considered personal and are not reimbursable.
