Window Shopper

The State Purchasing Division provides a website called Window Shopper that allows you to search for goods and services you need to buy for your agency or government organization. Much like shopping online at home, it is easy to use and contains information on prices and other details about the items.

Essentially, Window Shopper is a repository of online catalogs for statewide contract items—a one-stop-shop for all the item information you need to create a purchase order. It includes user friendly search capabilities and the ability to quickly compare pricing and features from one item to another. You can also easily save your orders as files to send, print, or fax to suppliers. It makes P-Card purchasing fast and easy. By using Window Shopper, you will save both time and money by purchasing items that are readily available at deeply discounted prices from statewide contracts rather than issuing a bid for items.

Who Can Use It?

  • State agencies, colleges and universities, and Georgia municipalities who do not have access to the Team Georgia Marketplace application.
  • State Accounting Office (SAO) PeopleSoft users, especially those who create purchase orders (PO) and acts as an agency PO buyer. If you are one of these users, it is likely we have already registered you to use Window Shopper. In this case, all you will need to do is obtain your ID and password.
  • Non-SAO PeopleSoft users or those who do not perform the job of an agency PO buyer. If you fit this category, you can register as a user. It’s a quick and simple process.

An online tutorial is available to show you through how to register and use the program.

After you have registered, you can log in and search for items you need to purchase. Window Shopper does not create purchase orders, but it does provide a lot of information in an easy-to-use manner, which can speed up the purchasing process.

With Window Shopper, you no longer need go to the State Purchasing Division website and navigate through cumbersome contracts searching for items; all the information you need will be available in one place.
