Onboarding with CommerceHub
CommerceHub is a distributed ecommerce network connecting supply, demand, and delivery that helps retailers and brands increase sales by expanding product assortments, promoting products on channels that perform, and enabling rapid, on-time customer delivery.
To learn more about the onboarding process and your next steps, see:
BrandX go-live requirements
To learn more about the BrandX go-live data requirements, see the table below. Rows highlighted in yellow indicate fields that are required for go-live but were not required during onboarding. To ensure you are prepared for go-live, update your messages to account for the fields highlighted in yellow.
Note: Messages that do not meet the BrandX requirements will be rejected by CommerceHub’s Dsco platform after go-live.
Required fields by workflow
BrandX requires certain fields for inventory, cancel, shipment, and invoice updates. You will need to ensure that you are sending all the required fields for this program. The document below outlines those required fields by workflow.
Excel templates for each workflow
The document below provides instructions for uploading your products.
Advanced catalog services
As a supplier, you are required to use advanced catalog services to add all rich item data, including images, for any items you wish to sell on the BrandX website. To learn more about advanced catalog services, see Advanced Catalog Services for Suppliers.
Looking for more information on managing your content with advanced catalog services? View and enroll in the training course in CommerceHub University, which provides interactive, on-demand business and system training.
Note: Not every retail trading partner on the Dsco platform uses advanced catalog services, which is different from the Catalog templates that are used to provide product/item data to your retail partner. For more information about uploading default Dsco Catalog/Inventory templates using the Inventory page, see Creating or Updating Inventory.
Packing slips can be downloaded in CommerceHub’s Dsco platform. If you prefer to create your own packing slips, this document provides instructions for replicating packing slips for BrandX. Once you have created your packing slips, please submit samples to BrandX for approval.
If you are going to exchange EDI documents with CommerceHub for BrandX, you will use the Dsco standard EDI specifications.
Note: In the Dsco EDI specifications, there are two versions for the 850 file: 4010 and 5010. For BrandX, we recommend you use the 5010 version for 850 files. All other files (846, 856, 870, 810) will use the 4010 version.
