CSV Supplier Uploads | Overview

Available to Existing Inventory Management Subscribers

This feature is only available to existing Inventory Management subscribers. Non-Inventory Management subscribers can learn more about using the ShippingEasy Product Catalog.

We are not currently opening Inventory Management to new users or developing new features or functionality for our Inventory solution. This means that at this time we cannot address the issues you have with the current system.

If you need an inventory solution that lets you add your third-party fulfillment provider to your account, our sister company ShipStation may be a better solution for you.

ShippingEasy supports adding and updating your Suppliers via CSV file. This guide outlines which fields can be updated with a CSV file upload. For more help getting started, download a sample suppliers CSV file at the end of this article.
