Becoming a Supplier at NC State

Reference this Knowledge Guide when completing the supplier registration process via PaymentWorks. This is a guide both for organizations with existing supplier IDs that need to be connected and for organizations needing a new supplier ID.

Student Government is required by NC State University to have student organizations go through the supplier registration process via PaymentWorks. Due to University policy, Student Government can only provide funding to organizations that are a registered supplier at NC State.

Student Government has created this guide for student organizations to help them navigate the PaymentWorks process and successfully become a supplier at NC State.  This guide was intentionally created for student organizations.

Step 1: Collect the required information & documentation.

The following information and documentation is required to become a supplier at NC State.  Please have these ready before you begin the process.

Step 2: Request to begin the supplier ID process.

Student organizations must submit a request to begin the supplier ID process via this Google Form.  This form will not automatically create a supplier ID for your organization, but will enable us to invite your organization to register as a supplier with NC State through the PaymentWorks website.  Organizations must submit this form to receive an invitation to register as a university supplier.  It can typically take 1-2 business days for Student Government to invite student organizations to register as a supplier through PaymentWorks.  The student organization will receive notification via email when they can create a PaymentWorks Payee account and start the registration process.

Step 3: Create a PaymentWorks Payee account.

Before your student organization can register as a supplier, your organization must first create a PaymentWorks Payee account.

Step 4: Complete the registration form.

Please note: You must follow these procedures to successfully register as a supplier.  Any deviation from these instructions can cause delays in creating a supplier ID or eligibility to receive funding.

The registration process may take approximately 10 minutes. If you are unable to complete the registration in one sitting, you can click on the Save and Exit button located at the bottom of the page and resume the process at a later time.

Step 5: Approval of registration.

Once you have submitted your organization’s registration, the NC State Supplier Onboarding Team will review your registration and either approve or deny it.  If approved, your organization will be assigned a supplier ID that Student Government will use to distribute funding and be fully connected.  If you are unsure whether your organization is a supplier at NC State, you can search the Supplier Database.
