This word consists of kanji with hiragana attached. Because the hiragana ends with an う sound, you know this word is a verb. The kanji itself means buy so the verb form is to buy.
Since this word consists of a kanji with hiragana attached, you can bet that it will use the kun'yomi reading. If you remember your kanji readings, you'll be just fine.
