  • What is Shopz?

    A: Shopz is an IBM e-business solution which allows you to order IBM zSeries software products and service over the Internet.

  • Do I need to register for Shopz?

    A: Yes. Shopz registration requires you to provide your IBM customer number(s).

  • What is a user group and how do I become a member of a one?

    A: Shopz access is now controlled through user groups. A user group controls access for a set of customer numbers belonging to a company within a specific country. If you are already registered from Shopz but a user group has not yet been created for your customer numbers, your existing Shopz user ID continue to work as before. To enjoy the many benefits of user groups, such as added control and collaboration, please contact your marketing representative to have a group set up for your customer numbers. Once a user group has been created for your customer numbers, your Shopz user ID will automatically be included as a member of that user group.
