Sell on Bed Bath & Beyond

Updated 9 months ago

Bed Bath & Beyond is an iconic home furnishing chain store. While their core product offerings are primarily for the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and dining room, they have expanded their online catalog to include gardening and lawn care, jewelry, baby products and more.

Bed Bath & Beyond's drop-ship program allows vendors to sell products on Bed Bath & Beyond's website. Inventory feeds will keep available quantity updated, and customer purchases will be forwarded to the vendor for fulfillment.


What You Need to Integrate and Sell on Bed Bath & Beyond

  1. Seller Account with Bed Bath & Beyond.
  2. CommerceHub account.
  3. Configure Bed Bath & Beyond's settings. 
  4. Configure Bed Bath & Beyond's Shipping Method Mapping.
  5. Complete the CommerceHub EDI Test Environment.

Seller Account with Bed Bath & Beyond - Bed Bath & Beyond purchases products through dedicated buyers, so you must contact them to become an approved seller and connect with a buyer. You submit a catalog file to the buyer, who decides which products to purchase and negotiates a price. Like other fulfillment channels, you do not post items to Bed Bath & Beyond from SellerCloud; rather, SellerCloud is used for inventory and order management. 

CommerceHub Account - To integrate with Bed Bath & Beyond, you must open an account with CommerceHub.com, the software they use for document transmission. This integration transmits EDI documents via SFTP connections. (SellerCloud is not currently supporting integration via VAN connections.) You will be assigned a Partner Setup Specialist who will work with SellerCloud Support to integrate your account and get you live on Bed Bath & Beyond. Be sure to determine if you will be using an SFTP.  CommerceHub will ask you to provide a Customer ISA Qualifier and Customer ISA ID. See below for those values.
