Wes from Dsco goes over a number of tips and tricks for Kohl's trading partners.
Onboarding with Dsco
Review the PDF below to get a head start on your onboarding process with Dsco.
If you're going to be exchanging EDI files with Dsco then you must use one of the two specifications listed below. Dsco also has a generic dropship EDI specification that includes separate 856 and 810 documents. However, when working with Kohl's, only the two specifications listed below are valid.
If you're already using the Kohl's EDI specification, we expect that you'll be able to continue to use the same EDI specs that you're already using. However, please note that some suppliers may need to make small mapping adjustments to work with Dsco.
If you're not using the Kohl's EDI spec then you'll need to use the Dsco EDI spec. You can download that spec using the link below.

Packing Slip Guide
Use the PDF below to create your in-house packing slip and map fields on order files from Dsco to the packing slip.
Please note that your packing slip must be approved by the Kohl's Direct Ship team before you can start receiving live orders.
The document below lists the required fields for each file type (inventory, order cancel, invoice). The fields in each section are required in order for updates to be accepted in Dsco.
A requirement of working with Kohl's is that each item in Dsco must include a partner SKU. A partner SKU (also referred to as a merchant SKU or retailer SKU) is the identifier used by Kohl's when creating orders for a supplier's items. The partner SKU is not the same thing as a vendor SKU. The vendor SKU is the supplier's own unique identifier for the item. The partner_sku field in Dsco should be used to include the Kohl's retailer SKU.
The table below shows the difference between a vendor SKU and retailer SKU and how each of those SKUs should be used in Dsco.
|Dsco Field||Item Identifier|
All Kohl's suppliers need to be familiar with the Dsco Warehouse Manager and be ready to provide inventory by warehouse location to Dsco. Go here for more information on the warehouse manager, or you can review the video below.
