Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Information For Merchants

BuckID is a discretionary spending program developed as a convenience to the faculty, staff and students at The Ohio State University.

Anyone with a balance on their BuckID is able to purchase goods and services at participating merchants.

Funds are deposited into accounts at various locations on campus or at our web site (under Manage your account). Faculty, staff or students present their BuckID to participating merchants and funds are deducted from their account by using one of several different devices.

Annual BuckID deposits have reached approximately $20 million annually; we expect this figure to continue to rise as the program grows.
