For Merchants

The Plus Account began offering students and employees the opportunity to purchase goods and services at participating locations off campus during the fall 2005 semester. There are 20,000 students and employees that use a Plus Account. It is currently accepted on campus and at more than 100 businesses off campus. The UK Plus Account Off Campus Program has generated more than $16 million in sales for Lexington area businesses.

Once a vendor's application has been approved, each location accepting the UK Plus Account will need to purchase a Verifone Tranz 330 or 380, a compatible Verifone Printer, and have access to an analog telephone line. Several businesses have successfully purchased the equipment from Ebay. Our office can provide you wilth additional contact information.

The UK Plus Account Office will charge a $35 annual fee and a small percentage on each sale.
