An Online Store Experience Designed for Higher Ed Institutions

Online Stores for Departments Across Campus

With Nelnet Storefront, individual departments can set up and manage their own stores and inventory, while keeping the business office in the loop. Business office admins control payment processing and can view and report on every transaction in real time.

Business Office

When departments use different methods for events or to sell items, it can be harder to track payments. Storefront brings all your disparate marketplaces in to a single solution.

Maintain Brand Presence

Storefront is branded to your institution – each department can have its own store and labeling.

Flexibility and Control

You have full control over who can manage a store – and they can report on payments in real time.

Easy Shopping Experience

Give students the convenient online shopping experience they’re already used to.

Information Technology

Allow for various role access – and enjoy the same perks as our other solutions.

Control Admin Access

We’ll start with our tried-and-true implementation process, then customize it for your institution – plus, we’ll continue supporting you after implementation is complete.

Implementation and Storefront Training

After implementation, we’ll prepare your staff to train other departments on product setup and management.

Meet the Highest Payment Security Standards

Our solutions are PCI Level 1 compliant and SSAE 18 audited, so you can be confident in the safety of Storefront.

Technical Features

Give your students the features they expect and set up a campus marketplace that’s accessible no matter where they’re at.

Mobile-Responsive Online Experience

Totally web-based, Storefront goes where you go. Plus, students can set up wish lists, save items in their shopping cart, and use whichever payment method they’d like.

Manage Physical and Digital Inventory Automatically

Set up alerts when items are running low – so you won’t have to constantly monitor inventory.

Accept Recurring Payments

It’s easy to keep track of recurring payments (like donations) with Storefront.

Partnership Benefits

Just like all of our solutions, Storefront comes with services that make your experience a success.

Best-in-Class Service

Receive support from friendly, experienced people no matter what.

Proven Implementation

Organize implementation with our proven, step-by-step process.

Security and Compliance

Protect every transaction with the highest levels of payment security.

Technology Integrations

Integrate our solutions with your current ERP and institutional partners.

Related Solutions


Securely manage in-person payments across your campus.

Payment Plans

Give students the opportunity to spread payments throughout the semester rather than paying everything at once.

That’s one of the reasons why we like Nelnet Campus Commerce so much. It’s so easy to deliver to our different departments and their various needs. Also, they hire higher education people, so they understand our world, our challenges, how campus politics work and how priorities can get temporarily bumped. That understanding changes how someone approaches their clients.
