News & Updates




Purchase Order Integration for NordstromRack.com | HauteLook is now LIVE!


Key Changes: Changes only apply to NEW orders written after 06/17/19 with a not after date of 10/01/19 or later

  • Suppliers who are currently EDI enabled with Nordstrom will receive or send EDI documents for NRHL orders using their current Nordstrom ID (applies to EDI 850, 850FR, 860, 856, 997)

  • POs will now have two locations on the same PO, with some exceptions

  • Suppliers need to pack & ship based on "ship to" locations on their EDI or PDF PO (non-EDI) as the new PO numbers will no longer start with HL, NL, or N

  • There are two new PO types being transmitted: HL=NRHL Persistent and HF=NRHL Flash



Nordstrom Replenishment Suppliers: In June the Full Price division of Nordstrom (including Nordstrom stores, Nordstrom.com, Trunk Club and Canada) will begin a phased rollout, by division, of a new replenishment system.  This is the same system that is currently supporting our Off-Price business.  This change will impact ordering, allocation and reporting for all replenishment product our teams manage and will allow them to more effectively execute their roles.

Please Note:

  • Early and accurate access to item information in electronic catalogs (i.e. GSX | OpenText; InterTrade) will help minimize time to Purchase Order receipt.  It is highly recommended that catalogs be available a minimum of two weeks before product can be planned or commitments made

  • There is a minimum of six business days required to receive commitments on replenishment items after an item is set-up in Nordstrom's system

  •  Supplier Portal will not be impacted

  • Information will continue to be available at www.nordstromsupplier.com


Nordstrom.com Suppliers: Nordstrom.com POs going forward will no longer start with a '0'. While there will be residual POs with the leading '0', new POs will not.  Suppliers will need to read their SDQ segment on their EDI 850 and utilize the Store / DC List in Section 8 of the Routing Guide. 





Nordstrom has implemented phase 1 of our OpenText | GXS Active Intelligence (AI) portal.  This phase is all about validating EDI data.


This new tool monitors EDI documents being received from our trading partners as well as sends out email alerts when the data contains mapping / formatting issues (during phase 1 suppliers will not be going into the portal as they will only be receiving email notifications). It is important to read and act quickly to these email notifications, resubmitting data when necessary; if this is done prior to your shipment being received at our warehouses, errors could be caught before they become issues in our supply chain. Expense offset fees may still apply If it cannot be resubmitted, is not done timely for that order or there are additional discrepancies; however suppliers still need to take the opportunity to fix the issue(s) for future orders.  


We are happy to partner with our valued suppliers and OpenText |GXS to help improve product flow through our facilities with the added benefit of reducing or eliminating EDI expense offset fees.


Phase II will be expanding our portal service with deduction management for expense offset fees; phase II implementation will be announced at a later date.
