Our Vendors are businesses that provide goods and/or services to our Members. When becoming a Vendor, a business agrees to offer a discounted rate on their goods and/or services in exchange for the leveraged volume of 100+ Member Organizations and our Individual Members. In providing quick and secured cash flow under our bill consolidation program, a pay discount is applied that is no more than standard credit card processing fees. There is a minimal annual marketing fee that provides full exposure on Nittany Co-Op marketing resources including website directory, social media, email marketing and personal interactions with decision makers.
