This week we wanted to highlight something within the software that nearly all of our sellers utilize: Vendor Management. SellerActive’s robust vendor management capabilities can handle everything from the forecasting of SKUs that need to be purchased to an export ready to be sent off to your vendor with your order details. What about everything in between? We’ve got you covered there as well.

Here I’ll show you how to add vendors into the system, the first step in utilizing our vendor management capabilities. Navigate to the Pricing Manager page. Once there click the “Manage” button next to Vendors:

Vendor Management in SellerActive

On the next screen, click the “Add Vendor SKU Mapping” to start entering your vendor information:


Now this is where the fun begins. You’ll begin filling in the information for your vendors. If you would like to use strategic SKU suffixes to manage your vendors even easier, feel free. If not, no worries, just add a “SKU Code Suffix” for the software’s sake. Don’t forget to fill out the “Days to Restock” column. Your “Days to Restock” is the time it takes you to receive inventory from your vendors (this is a necessary step to start generating information on the Low Stock report). When you’re done, click “Create Mapping.”


Once your vendors are entered, your day-to-day life just got a little extra time!
