Edit a Supplier | How To

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.

At this time, we are not currently 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. However, we do expect that in 2022, we will be introducing a new and improved Inventory experience.

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 provides the option to save your Suppliers. This makes generating Purchase Orders a breeze. If you ever find that one of your Suppliers' contact information has changed, you can edit the Supplier to update your records.

Edit Multiple Suppliers via CSV File

Consider the following when you update suppliers via a CSV file.

  1. It is not necessary to pare down the data to only the items that require updates. Rather, a file with a complete listing of all your suppliers will work just as well as one limited to only suppliers with updates. ShippingEasy will review the file for (1) new suppliers and (2) updated suppliers. All others will be ignored. New suppliers will be added. Update suppliers will be edited to reflect new data. An existing Supplier ID cannot be changed.

  2. You must map the Supplier ID column for every Supplier upload. When adding new Suppliers, leave the ID blank. When updating existing Suppliers, enter the assigned ID. Learn more about finding assigned Supplier IDs and formatting a Supplier CSV file.

Follow these steps to edit multiple Suppliers via CSV file:

  1. Click the Upload Suppliers link On the SUPPLIERS page when you have your prepared CSV file on hand.

  2. Click Browse from the CSV file menu to select your file, then click Upload suppliers.

  3. Map the Source Column to the ShippingEasy Column on the Upload CSV: Supplier Import page, then select Continue.

    Important

    The Supplier ID column must be mapped for every Supplier upload. When you add new Suppliers, leave the ID blank. When you update existing Suppliers, enter the assigned ID. Learn how to find a Supplier ID.
