EDI VAN for Shopbop Suppliers

Since its founding in 1999, and more notably since its acquisition by Amazon in 2006, Shopbop has become a premier online source for clothing, apparel, and accessories produced by over a thousand unique brands. Like any retail trading partner, though, Shopbop has very specific electronic data interchange (EDI) requirements. Keeping various competing standards and pieces of data organized while complying with those requirements is never a simple task for any business.

Bold VAN has the experience and technical expertise necessary to ensure your enterprise has no problems whatsoever with Shopbop EDI. If you need assistance keeping your vendor relationship with Shopbop on track, we can provide the solutions you need and help your business continue to have a lucrative relationship with this major online retailer.

What Are Shopbop’s EDI Requirements?

As established in their Vendor Operations Manual, Shopbop has very strict criteria for how vendors and clients must send and process invoices, what information must be included in each invoice, and even who they allow to access their internal EDI invoice processing. Among other requirements, Shopbop mandates that their EDI trading partners be capable of processing the following:

  • EDI 810 – Invoice, pending Shopbop accounting approval
  • EDI 846 – Inventory Advice, if requested by Shopbop
  • EDI 850 – Purchase Order
  • EDI 856 – Advance Ship Notice/Manifest
  • EDI 860 – Purchase Order Change—Buyer Initiated
  • EDI 997 – Functional Acknowledgement (Send & Receive)

Automating this system through an EDI VAN is vital for companies like Shopbop, as it allows them to track and manage client relationships in real time without having to worry about competing or conflicting data standards. Shopbop will only provide electronic invoicing and other forms of EDI access upon request, subject to their approval of the applicant’s eligibility for their EDI program.
